    Hmm, you'd think they'd have a mental evaluation already by now.. Something seems hinky here.. From the very beginning I kind of felt there might be something deeper going on that had to do with the dad... JMO

    The evaluation may have indicated a serious problem that required immediate attention? I have been wondering about that. Early 20's is when schizophrenia and bi-polar disorder are often first diagnosed; JM had a known drug problem; and untreated mental illness along with substance abuse dramatically increases the possibility of violent crime. If that is the case, things just became even more tragic for everyone.

    I am also bothered about the inconsistencies in this case, the changing stories given to police, etc. I find it hard to believe the police would let blatant and publicized lies slide. Unless something bigger was coming, they were waiting on evidence, etc.

    Hazel Park man charged in Troy woman's murder ruled competent to stand trial

    By Mike McConnell, The Daily Tribune

    Posted: 07/29/16, 3:02 PM EDT

    A Hazel Park man accused of murdering a Troy woman and hiding her body in the attic of his home was found competent to stand trial Friday.

    Jordan McClanahan, 23, is charged with strangling Jessica White, 21, with a belt and cutting off her fingertips April 23.

    Hazel Park 43rd District Judge Charles Goedert back in May granted a request by defense attorney Raymond Correll to have McClanahan examined and tested by doctors at the state Center for Forensic Psychiatry in Ypsilanti for mental competency and criminal responsibility.

    McClanahan stood quietly next to his attorney in court Friday as Goedert accepted the psychiatric report into the record and ruled the suspect was mentally competent to stand trial...

    HAZEL PARK, Mich. - A Hazel Park man is in court Friday for a preliminary hearing for the murder of a 21-year-old woman found wrapped and hidden in the attic of his home.

    Jordan McClanahan, 23, is charged with first-degree murder after police said he “implicated himself” in Jessica Leigh White’s death. He allegedly told them where they could find her body.

    An autopsy determined White’s death was a homicide and the cause was “strangulation by ligature.” The autopsy also showed her body was violated physically and sexually after she was killed. McClanahan also faces a desecration of a body charge...

    HAZEL PARK, Mich. - A Hazel Park man was found guilty Friday afternoon of killing a 21-year-old Troy woman and hiding her body in his Hazel Park attic.*

    Testimony: Hazel Park man charged with murder, mutilation told father, ‘I think I did something bad’

    By John Turk, The Oakland Press
    Posted: 02/07/17, 1:44 PM EST | Updated: 12 hrs ago

    Troy resident Karen White had a nightmare she was being choked the morning after her daughter was strangled to death, she testified in the murder trial involving the Hazel Park man charged in the murder and mutilation of Jessica White.

    It seems an eerie coincidence now, but Karen White didn’t know her 21-year-old daughter was killed in the morning hours of April 23 last year. In fact, she held out hope after her daughter’s then-believed disappearance, searching in burned out buildings in Detroit and having family and friends searching “at every hour of the night.”

    That hope ended when she learned that an ambulance had been called to Jessica’s friend’s home — the friend now charged in her murder...

    Family friend gets life plus 10 in murder of Troy woman

    Mike Martindale, The Detroit News 5:11 p.m. ET March 8, 2017

    Pontiac — A man convicted of the 2016 gruesome killing and mutilation of a 21-year-old Troy woman was cursed as a deceptive “monster” who deserved to “rot in hell” Wednesday by the victim’s mother in Oakland Circuit Court.

    Karen White made the remarks in an emotional impact statement before Judge Leo Bowman. The judge sentenced Jordan McClanahan, 24, for the death of Jessica White, found last May in the attic rafters of McClanahan’s Hazel Park home after an extensive search by the woman’s family and friends...

    Jordan McClanahan’s appeal was scheduled to be heard today before the Michigan Court of Appeals. I can’t link to the database record but you can search here:
    Case Search
    Inmates do not usually attend these proceedings, which are usually short oral arguments between lawyers in front of a panel of 3 judges — there are many scheduled before each panel in a single day. The COA already has all the transcripts from all lower court proceedings and copies of briefs from both parties. They will issue their decision/opinion in a few weeks or months.
