    McCain: Kyron Kops: Confident Yet Clueless (and Raking in the OT)

    http://victoriataftkpam.blogspot.com...ident-yet.html

    There is no discernable crime scene, though Skyline School has been dubbed “Ground Zero” for the investigation. Investigators admit there is no physical evidence relating to Kyron or linking anyone – including Terri Horman – to Kyron’s disappearance. No broken eyeglasses. No torn CSI shirt. No bloody handprint. To say MCSO detectives are clueless is not an insult; it’s their own description of the case. Yet some of these investigators have been well-compensated for their time so far.

    At his September 15 press conference, Staton talked much about the task force as a responsible business model. On the six-month anniversary of Kyron’s disappearance Staton finally confessed to the Oregonian’s Maxine Bernstein what many in the public and media already suspected:

    "I wanted to know what's going on because I lost confidence in the investigation," he said. "I felt the case was moving towards a cold case, and I was concerned. We had collected a ton of information, and nothing was being answered."

  4. #4
    Yet there has been no apparent discussion of offering Terri Horman an immunity deal in exchange for leading investigators to the real kidnappers and bringing Kyron home. The likely reason for that is that the district attorney believes that Kyron is not alive or that Terri Horman has no information worth trading for. Otherwise, it’s unfathomable that the district attorney and investigators would allow Kyron to remain a kidnap victim this long hoping to catch Terri Horman in a mistake that leads to her arrest and indictment.

    Wow...that list of indivudual OT amounts just for the month of June is pretty staggering...
    Just my opinion, of course.

    Wow, Kyron's parents should just hire private detectives and see where that leads them.

    There he is again....the man with the axe to grind. I take nothing Bruce McCain says seriously.

    Note that in the December audio interview, McCain keeps referring to Kyron's case as a cold case.

    When Staton presented the task force business plan to the board of commissioners, his co-presenter was Lt. Ned Walls. Lt. Walls is head of MCSO's cold case division.

    If you look in the talk force business plan document, you see that the bi-monthly briefings are given to Lt. Walls.

    What Is a Cold Case? | National Institute of Justice

    The definition of a cold case varies from agency to agency. The National Institute of Justice currently defines a cold case as any case whose probative investigative leads have been exhausted. In essence, this means a case that is only a few months old may be defined as being "cold."

    I think many know what and why McCain feels the need to continue to interject himself into this case.


    ETA~ comment 3rd down on Victoria Taft blogspot seems to be pretty accurate account of Mr. McCain and also what the media is/has done regarding Kyron's "disappearance"..

    Here's link from OP~ http://victoriataftkpam.blogspot.com...ident-yet.html.

    Bean: Thanks VERY much!

    I'm wondering now if Lt. Walls plays some role in certain funding matters. Look down at the bottom of pg 3 and top of pg 4 at the next two items presented at that meeting. Walls and the fiscal staff person presented both of those together also. And neither appears to have anything to do with cold cases.

    I'll do some research. If you find anything related to that please let us know.

    TIA

    If she was offered a deal and turned it down, would the public know it?

    Respectfully B&IBM

    I see your point about how the information has actually been sent to a person who's the head of cold cases, and that's certainly suggestive.

    But what I've read in the Dec press releases is almost the opposite of this definition of a cold case: It's not that they don't have leads--but sounds like they've got so many, it's taking a long time to track them all down.
