They'd rather harrass some college athletes & students that actually try and solve this murder. It i way over their heads. Our local cops are rank amateurs. Just a bunch of redneck county mounties who'd rather tickle each other's butt than do any real work. besides their just not smart enough to tackle the case.

Dr Abbe - I don't follow this story often but every now and then google it to see if there are any breaks in the case. I read your post from April 23, 2009 wondering who her boyfriend was. I went to UGA when the murder happened and her boyfriend was in one of my classes at the time. Can't remember his name but he was tall, thin,wore glasses and had blond hair in a ponytail. Seemed like a nice guy. I do remember reading an article that his DNA was tested and it was not a match so he was cleared almost right away as a suspect.

Its not uncommon for our leaders to cover up for others.When a pedophile can go undetected for decades, its reasonable to assume 100's of people in your town where aware of his crimes. Most choose as a result of corruption, higher authority influence or just plan ignorance to look the other way. On average the Bureau of Prisons reports that once incarcerated pedophiles will admit to an average of 250 victims. Think of how many children where hurt by this man in your town.

Much of the evidence has already been published years ago in the former Athens Observer 1995-1996 in the articles cited above. If you provide your name, address and telephone number I would be happy to send you copies. They are already available at the Athens Public Library, Heritage Room in a "Vertical File" as mentioned above. Some have been published on the site www.athens101.com . Other unpublished evidence comes from comments by citizens of Athens also concerned about this case. For example, the late Calvin Bridges, distinguished citizen of Athens for many years and former Athens' City Councilman, related to me that when he was doing a plumbing job at the home of Judge Gaines , Michael Gaines game to him and volunteered words to the effect "You know, they didn't even question me at all". The comment about the GBI also comes from another distinguished citizen of Athens. With the investigative file held under strict military lock and key by the police department, protected by the government and the courts, this is the only type of evidence available until the file is opened. But that does not mean the evidence is not true. Also, in the "Little" case in Atlanta about 50 years ago, the files "mysteriously" disappeared while in the police custody. The only way the journalists of AJC were able to write recent investigative articles a few years ago was because of the existence of federal files since it was a kidnapping and therefore a federal crime. Hence the speculation that the files about Jennifer Stone are likely destroyed follows this. After all, since everything is continually secret and there is no routine monitoring of police custody of these files, how would one know if they are all there? Lawyer Tolley undisputedly was shown her file early on. He was the lawyer for Michael Gaines. Mr. Tolley did not dispute this as documented in the Observer articles. What is the ethics of showing the file to Tolley if he be the lawyer for the main suspect? One could go on and on. Why is the "Unified" Government of Athens Clarke County so intent on keeping all this under wraps when it is very unlikely anyone will ever be prosecuted for this crime anyway? Obviously they desperately fear the bad publicity which will undoubtedly result if the file is opened, and I predict that even if the Georgia Supreme Court sustains the Georgia Court of Appeals, the Athens Government will obfuscate and find a number of "reasons" to redact and prevent information from being made public. Just watch and see. Justice is delayed is justice denied.
