    I searched to see if there was anything on here about this apparently complicated case and could find nothing. It has do do with the killing of a witness to a murder.

    I will post more details about the (at least two) murders involved later on. There's fairly decent coverage, now that I know what was being covered.



    A local news story grabbed my attention and slammed my "annoyance button" this afternoon...

    Suspect charged with murder, but whose? (WAVE-3 [NBC], Louisville, Ky, 9/24/2014)



    There is now a new related story up, but wouldn't that get on your nerves if you clicked the above link expecting some actual INFORMATION?
    Absolutely nothing but a big ole tease...

    Out of all the stories I've found thus far, the one below has the simplest summary of the case(s) that I've found.

    It all started with the 2005 murder of Lajuante Jackson.
    This shows how slow and tedious our legal system(s) can work, as it involved at least one local case (maybe 9?) and a Federal case.

    They can't even keep witnesses alive for the trial for the first murder!
    I said that with my tongue firmly in cheek because the witness was killed before the trial.
    He was killed EIGHT YEARS after the murder he was to testify about.

    And we wonder why people don't want to come forward under the auspices of "government protection."
