    NC - Jerry Case for kidnapping Gaston County family, 2009

    Link

    This man should never have been released from prison in the first place. I am so glad that this family was able to get away, I have no doubt that he planned to kill them all.
    Happy New Years

    Man - I think I need a break from WS...I am physically ILL at our "justice" system. The US is going to he!! in a handbasket, and all the politicians can think about is STUPID universial health care - Not keeping criminals in their cages, not toughening laws for child murder/abuse, and the list JUST GOES ON!

    Rant over - I'm just glad they got away.

    From November 2012:

    Margaret and Randy Farmer lost their only son on Jan. 1, 1985. The Gastonia couple couldn’t believe what police told them. Their 17-year-old boy had been killed by a train. Ruled a suicide nearly 28 years ago, a letter from a federal prison inmate prompted police to reopen the case of Chris A. Farmer...

    Case described hanging out with friends on New Year’s Eve in 1984. Driving around Gastonia, smoking marijuana and drinking beer. Case said he and his friends met up with Farmer at a gas station. Farmer went with the group to play pool and party, according to the letter. Case wrote that he intended to rob Farmer. Instead, he shot him and placed his body on some nearby railroad tracks...

    It wasn’t long before a bail bondsman friend of the family said he heard Case say he’d killed Chris Farmer. The family called police. Police said they’d call if they found anything, Margaret Farmer said. That call never came...
    Case was sentenced to 30 years in federal prison for the 2009 kidnapping.
