    IN - Damon Allem, 37, Dunklin County, 16 October 2002

    A lead on a cold case turns explosive, and a threat to kill police officers in Dexter, brings the bomb squad out and puts some residents out of their homes.

    Police from across Southeast Missouri joined forces with the Missouri Highway Patrol, after a Dexter man called and offered to confess to killing a Dunklin County man. That homicide took place three years ago.

    Police say 42-year-old Jimmy Lee Allen's girlfriend was in jail in another county and Allen was hoping to negotiate her release.

    Still investigators didn't bite, so Allen then allegedly bragged about some explosives he had, and coupled that with a threat to kill police officers.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    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?

    The confession apparently went nowhere; can't find anything about Jimmy Lee being prosecuted.

    From October 2002:


    The Dunklin County Major Case Squad continues its investigation into the death of Allen, whose body was found on the concrete floor of a culvert over a dry creek bed on Highway WW just north of Campbell.

    The suspicion of foul play was confirmed by an autopsy which was performed Thursday, Oct. 17. The autopsy report said Allen had died as the result of trauma to the head. He had suffered injuries to the back and front of his head.
