Durham North Carolina or Asheville North Carolina?

We have a girl who is murdered and raped. We have two people held in jail for two years without charges, then released. A young man who was already in jail on a rape charge was to have confessed to the rape and murder of the girl.

The deputies that investigated the murder were later taken off the case as lead investigators. It had been a year and no progress was being made. The events occurred during an election year when the County Commissioners, Clerk of Court, District Attorney, and Sheriff were all up for election. There was a rumor that someone would run for the District Attorney’s seat. The current District Attorney, Ron Moore, had been in that office and few, if any, would consider a challenge to the powerful long time machine.

This created a sense of urgency to solve the crime as this was a horrible act and the District Attorney along with the Sheriff is the one to administer justice. The reported chain of events is as follows. A woman said she saw two men put a body in the trunk of a car. She was a former girlfriend of one of the men. John Elkins re-interviewed her later and her statement became less than clear. After reviewing the evidence, the investigators came to the conclusion that the two men were not the guilty parties. The only problem is that the men had been held in jail for two years.

This is only to true, as in the case of Andrew Reed, convicted child molester...prominent Democrat, was allowed to plead to lesser crimes, and given a mild sentence at a minimum custody prison camp in the eastern part of the state.

Similarities to this case? District Attorney Ron Moore, for one.

This used to be one of several political commentary blogs I ran until I got tired of updating several blogs, and consolidated them on Thunder Pig, and moved the group blogs to a Ning network.

These photos are a reflection of where I am throughout the day, and a celebration of life west of the Balsam mountain range in western North Carolina.
