    Hmmmmm.

    From an article cited above:
    http://www.journalnow.com/news/crim...cle_d32858e2-5080-5394-a023-ee0d61440d2e.html

    Lynch is Corbett's sister, from Ireland. Molly is Corbett's 2nd wife; his first wife died from an asthma attack when the children were very young. Byrd is one of Molly's attorneys.


    Hmmmm.

    Thanks for all the links, borndem! Really curious as to why there hasn't been an arrest. Seems fairly simple. How long does it take to receive an autopsy report?

    IMHO :thinking:

    If she never bothered to adopt the kids or her husband did not want that, they should go with the Irish relatives. Otherwise, why not adopt and change the will? Maybe she has not been arrested because her father is retired FBI?? He could have made sure the story had a self-defense spin to it.

    So, they go so far as to name Molly and her father as POI's, but no arrests. I guess they figure her father won't be going back to Tennessee for a while?? This may be a good one to watch.

    A little info about the area --

    Wallburg's population is about 3,000 people. It is in Davidson County, and the county population is around 163,000. This area is a manufacturing area, and it is still known for its high-quality furniture. The county sits just a bit left of the center of the state and it is hilly but not yet mountainous.

    Interesting comments from his sister about adoption of the children -- but I don't know if it can be corroborated anywhere. So, another, Hmmm.

    Okay, I'm getting confused. Was their mother American? How long have the kids lived in the US?

    From what I've read their mother wasn't American and they've only lived in the US for four years, but I also can't figure out what kind of visa they had? Permanent residence? Dual citizenship? Did Molly sponsor all three of them when they moved?

    Is this case going to be a "self-defense" case? His death has been classified as a homicide, so what's next? LE certainly has more info on this case than we know... Are they putting something together for an arrest, or what? We're already entering the "dark" period of this case, IMO -- we are left in the dark until something big happens... Will something big happen?

    Does Molly have any kind of legal right to the children right now? How are the children?

    blue sneakers---Jason took a job transfer to work in the U.S. for a limited time. He always planned to return to Ireland. His first wife, Mags, was Irish, and his second wife, Molly, is American. The children are Irish citizens. I hope this helps!

    Let me say first that I don't know a darn thing about custody of children -- especially in the absence of both biological parents. If the "stepmother" is not a legal guardian how can she have custody of them? I don't understand. Maybe I missed something...

    ETA: I did miss something -- the post just above mine -- before I posted what is above.

    Yay!!! Well, it looks like that little (hah!) detail is put to bed, how about some arrest warrants??

    A full autopsy takes several hours, but the big factor there is when the Medical Examiner can actually perform it -- how many other autopsies are "ahead" of the particular one of interest. That varies widely. The local county Medical Examiner may do the autopsy or the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Raleigh, NC, (OCME) may do the autopsy. In either office, it would, of course, depend on the case load that is already waiting for an autopsy to be done. When done, the Autopsy Report may be made available to the WSM or not. An Autopsy Report may be viewed by anyone by going to the OCME in Raleigh, or one can order a copy. Here is a bit of info from the OCME:
