    JOHNSON COUNTY, Kan. — An investigation into what was termed an ‘unattended death’ evolved into a homicide investigation and a man has been arrested and charged as a result. The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office identified the deceased body as 22-year-old Jordan MacDonald. Prosecutor’s charged 31-year-old Dustin Maynard with first-degree murder on Saturday in connection with MacDonald’s death.

    This was the first article from the morning Jordan MacDonald was found. In the shadow of another "unattended death" found less than 24 hours before, less than 2 miles away. That death has yet to be explained and only as "no foul play".

    This next article from three days later, they finally "identified" this young mans body. He was identified as 22 year old Jordan MacDonald. When in fact he was 21 years old. All this with the father waited anxiously literally right across the street at the restaurant where Jordan worked and he owns.

    So here it is February 17, 2014 and Dustin Maynard still has not had a real preliminary hearing although he was arrested November 1, 2013. His case history is public record at the Johnson County Courts website. I don't understand. From how I read this he will not have one until April 1, 2014.(April Fool's Day, lol)

    How is it that someone can be charged for a murder Nov. 1, 2013 and not have a preliminary hearing until Aril 1, 2014? Five months later. I have never heard of such a case. Has anyone else? I can see a continuance or two but this is crazy. And not one comment or statement from his family. I don't understand it.

    Next stop Jordan is a "scheduling conference" for your case is May 1, 2014. No press there for Dustin MacDonald's preliminary hearing that I know of. So no links from the media. But you should know Jordan, that people still care. RIP Jordan MacDonald

    Well Jordan, looks like another delay for Justice. I know you are asking WTF. Me too. Your time will come, he's not going anywhere. I don't understand why a murder in one place causes continual attention and media coverage and one doesn't.

    But so you know, it's no reflection on the quality of who you were or the value of your existence. It's the way trials work these days. Keep the secrets of this tragedy until they say "it's time".

    Well it appears there will be a "ruling" on May 18, 2015. Turns out the fool that did this to you and ended your life had "no evidence" to offer the Court.

    Seems as though Maynard finally waived a Jury Trial and plead guilty. Sentencing in December. I suppose we now may never know why he took such a young life. I'll still never understand why one murder will get the attention of media and caring public and one does not.

    One of the things that I don't get is it has taken two years to get a little Justice for Jordan. Two full years. No Jury trial. Maynard was arrested two days after the murder. Only one crime scene. Two full years of nothing but delays and continuances. The family sold the business where Jordan also worked in the kitchen. He had given the killer a ride home after he got off work. The parents moved away and have had to travel each time a Court date came around. IMO sometimes our Judicial system just plain fails the victims and their families.

    The Kansas City Star reports that 33-year-old Dustin Adam Maynard, of De Soto, was sentenced Wednesday for first-degree murder in the killing of Jordan MacDonald. Prosecutors say MacDonald was stabbed and strangled. Authorities say the victim’s body was found partially burned in a grassy area near Maynard’s apartment in October 2013.
