TN - Alisha Quillen, 19, shot to death, Knox County, 28 July 2005
In a matter of weeks, authorities had identified 11 suspects, confiscated four potential murder weapons and located three cars used in the crime they were probing.
They established a motive and garnered a slew of incriminating statements. They even had an eyewitness.
It would seem the perfect case. But last week, that proved an illusion as two of the men accused in the July 28 fatal shooting of 19-year-old Alisha Quillen went free and testimony from two key witnesses failed to provide evidence of a plot to kill or even open fire.
So what went wrong?
Authorities clearly built the foundation of their case on Christopher "Corey" McNew and his crew of country boys from Morristown. McNew, the son of a deputy working for the agency that investigated the slaying, was the first to be identified and the first to cooperate, testimony showed.
He led Knox County Sheriff's Office detectives to the rest of the posse he rounded up to go to South Knoxville on the night Quillen was shot, testimony showed. There were 11 young men in all. Eight lived in or around the Morristown area. Three were from Knoxville.

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

Alisha Quillen was a hero. She died while shielding a small child from that bullet.
