    You have to lose quite a few brain cells when you read this Topix.

    Understand that until a few years ago there were very few African Americans here. They move here because when released from prison this is the cheapest place to house them.

    It is well known that Lacey's mom is an addict and drunk.

    Most folks are illiterate or near so.

    Heroin is rampant.

    I would suggest not going to this Topix, because you may suffer severe brain damage from trying to make sense of it.

    It may be Lacey. I'm just waiting for the final report.

    Now that we know it's Lacey, I'm seriously wondering if the people her mother was harassing really have something to do with it.

    That news report was really hard to follow, was her body found near the backyard of the guy the mother harassed? Or was her body found near her mother's backyard? There was something about a backyard in that article...

    I thought it was the guy's back yard, but you're right that it wasn't very clear.

    Jeremy Garnsey disappeared about 8 years ago in November from Lyons Falls, NY in Lewis County. He has not been found. He appeared on a missing persons list once but I can't find him again. He was about 21 I think. Just for your info.

    Massena man arrested for 2014 murder of Lacey Yekel

    "CANTON — It’s been almost four years since her body was found, and a Massena man has been charged with the 2014 murder of Lacey L. Yekel.

    Christopher A. Hebert, 46, formerly of 14759 Route 37, now an inmate at the St. Lawrence County jail, pleaded not guilty to the unsealed indictment charging him with the A-I felony of second-degree murder in connection with Ms. Yekel’s death.

    The indictment charges that on or about June 7, 2014 in St. Lawrence County, he intentionally caused the death of Ms. Yekel.

    Ms. Yekel was last seen by her mother, Bonnie Sue Lamay of Massena, on June 4, 2014, but had not been reported missing prior to the discovery of the body. Her 25th birthday was Aug. 27, 2014.

    Her body was found two days later.

    While no details were made available as to how the alleged murder occurred or what would have led Hebert to kill her, Ms. Yekel’s body was found Aug. 29, 2014, after state police Bureau of Criminal Investigation and uniformed officers responded to a report of a partially wrapped body in a wooded area across the road from the NYSARC bottle redemption center in the Massena Industrial Park, just off Route 420...."

    Haggard granted request to not represent Hebert in murder trial, Miles appointed

    SEPTEMBER 20, 2018

    "CANTON — The former St. Lawrence County prosecutor representing murder suspect Christopher A. Hebert was granted a request Wednesday that he no longer represent Hebert.

    David A. Haggard was the chief assistant district attorney in 2014 when two men being used as witnesses by District Attorney Gary M. Pasqua against Hebert struck a deal with then-DA Mary E. Rain.

    And while it was determined that Mr. Haggard played no role in the investigation of Mr. Hebert, the former prosecutor said the issue was causing a delay of his client’s case and that it was in Hebert’s best interest to have immediate representation.

    Attorney Gary W. Miles was appointed by County Judge Jerome J. Richards, who is presiding over the case....

    Mr. Haggard said he is going to move swiftly to turn over all files to Mr. Miles and while it was the right and ethical thing to do, he said he was disappointed that he couldn’t continue, quoting Hebert as having said, “he felt bad because he said my representation was exemplary.”..."

    Hebert appeared in St. Lawrence County Court Tuesday with his newly assigned attorney, Gary W. Miles, at which time District Attorney Gary M. Pasqua said that there was no delay and that no statute of limitations had been reached warranting the dismissal of the charge....
