    ID - Nori Jones, 25, murdered in her Pocatello home, 28 Sept 2004 *Arrest*



    http://www.idahostatejournal.com/new...9bb2963f4.html

    Nearly ten years to the day after Nori Jones was found stabbed to death in her Pole Line Road home, police announced that an arrest has been made in the case.

    Brad Scott Compher, 39, of Pocatello was arrested Wednesday morning and charged with first degree murder in her killing. Police say DNA evidence and fingerprints found at the crime scene resulted in the arrest...

    Nori Jones was found murdered in her home on Poleline Road on Sept. 28, 2004. The 25-year-old had been found brutally stabbed, suffering defensive wounds and fatal blows by her attacker. Her body was discovered by coworkers who became concerned when she did not show up for work.

    The man accused of killing Nori Jones in 2004, Brad Scott Compher, appeared via video from the Bannock County Jail at his arraignment Thursday...

    During the arraignment, Compher asked the judge about bail and also expressed concern about missing work for two days. Judge Naftz said there would be no bail amount set at this time...

    On Wednesday the prosecutor said he wouldn’t rule out seeking the death penalty in the Jones case.

    Looking forward to her story and Compher's arrest being featured on Cold Justice. http://www.idahostatejournal.com/mem...5fc69ddc6.html

    The attorneys representing the local man accused of murdering Nori Jones want all the raw footage filmed by a TV show that chronicled the suspect’s arrest... Sixth District Magistrate Judge Rick Carnaroli has not yet ruled on the matter...

    In early January, the public defenders asked the court to delay broadcasting the “Cold Justice” episode about the Jones murder, claiming that airing the show would hinder Compher’s ability to get a fair trial...

    Compher is currently being held at Bannock County Jail. He will be back in court for a preliminary hearing at 9 a.m. on April 6.

    And he was worried about missing work? Really? I'd think he had bigger worries than that.

    Hoping for justice for Nori. Been too long a wait already, IMO.

    This is a particularly interesting case for me. Pocatello is my home town although I haven't lived there for over a decade now. I hadn't heard about this case until my sister called my attention to it when she visited me and we watched the cold case show together.
    General thoughts: it's always amusing to watch those shows and see how they show a photo of one part of town while discussing another area--something only locals might notice.
    My friend and a family member have some random odd connections to this case so I'm rather interested to see how it all plays out.

    As for him worrying about work, I chalked that up to shock and nerves. It had been a while since the murder so he was likely taken by surprise.

    Would love to hear about the connections whenever or if ever you feel comfortable enough to share.

    To be slightly less vague, one of my family members used to be romantically involved with a family member of one of the original suspects mentioned in the cold case show who was convicted of another murder which happened after Nori Jones.

    Additionally, I have a family member who used to have a professional relationship with the current suspect.

    I have no insider information whatsoever regarding this case. Pocatello is generally boring, IMO, and kind of a random place to see a WS thread about, so I searched for it as soon as my sister and I watched the cold case show together. It's always a trip to see a street you've driven down on national tv....if you're from Pocatello, that is LOL

    Defense is bringing names of other possible suspects into the mix.

    Catching up on watching Cold Justice show & looked around to find status of this case.
    Looks like trial was postponed from April 18 & rescheduled for October 4, 2016 (from most recent court activity I could find.)

    http://www.idahostatejournal.com/mem...b5f2adddf.html

    Incidentally, the article ends with statement ..."Compher remains incarcerated at the Bannock County jail where he is being held without bond.," yet his name does not appear on the current jail roster. http://204.134.194.3/jailreport/jailroster.xml
    I did run across a news article about the jail being at capacity... perhaps he was transferred elsewhere. No matter, just found that a little curious.

    Brad Scott Compher, also known as Ralph Roy Compher – he legally changed his name in 2008 – was arrested in September 2015 for the murder of Nori Jones who was stabbed to death in her Pole Line Road home in 2004.

    The murder was featured on the TNT crime series “Cold Justice” and a crew from California-based Magic Elves Production worked with Pocatello police to speed up DNA processing in the case.

    Following Compher’s preliminary hearing, Herzog said that case could end up costing tax payers $500,000.

    Herzog said salaried state police experts do not charge the county to testify, but he said the cost of getting expert witnesses from private labs to court could end up costing the county $10,000 to $20,000 each, as well as the cost of transportation and expenses.

    Those costs are being paid from a reserve fund set aside by the Bannock County Commission, Herzog said. The defense might also incur costs for outside experts, but Herzog said his office is not privy to that information.

    Compher will go to trial on Jan.30, 2017.

    "Public Defender Dave Martinez represents Compher in the murder case. He filed a motion asking the court to postpone the Jan. 30, 2017, trial date because the public defender’s office has a second murder trial set for that month."
