Testimony In Missing Man Case



----------

A | A | A His body hasn't been found and no one is charged with killing him, but police say they're confident a murder has been committed..

On Thursday morning, they outlined their case against two men charged with disposing of Jeremy Johnson's body. He vanished in June.

According to what police said on the witness stand Thursday, Daniel Grubb and Jeremy Johnson may have had a "3 hour off and on fight" that started at the former Angels and Wings Restaurant & Bar in Corbin.

Exactly how Johnson died may be up for debate, but police said on the stand that Grubb and Bobby Walters are responsible for doing something with his body.

Police testified about a possible motive for an argument between Grubb and Johnson, who's been missing now since June 10, 2008.

“At one time…she (witness) heard Daniel yell Jeremy’s name and said it was over pills and money,” Det. Jason York testified Thursday during a preliminary hearing for Walters and Grubb in Knox District Court.

There was testimony from police statements that the fight may have escalated into something tragic, but police have not charged either suspect with murder.

“And Bobby told her (witness)….that Daniel had killed a guy, that Daniel came to his trailer or house and said,‘I killed Jeremy Johnson last night after a fight, hit him with a cinder block,'” said Det. York when answering questions from the Knox County Attorney.

Det. York later said that the witness told them that Grubb wanted to confess, but that Walters talked him out of it because "your father won't be able to help you."

Defense attorneys call those statements “hearsay,” but police say they were also able to record a phone conversation April 15th between a witness and Walters that led to Grubb’s and Walter’s arrests.

“On two different times, when he (Walters) was asked if anybody saw him and saw Daniel drag the body to the car, both times he said, no,” said Det. York.

The judge found probably cause and sent the case to the grand jury.

When did he get killed in prison? I never did ever hear anything else about that trial or what ever happened. I know Bobbie Walters passed away of natural cases while in jail but I never did hear if this ever went to trial or what punishment they received.

I remember around when that happened I didn't know Jeremy Johnson was missing, Zack Hart was wanting to move up to Indianapolis around then and he did. Yeah Zack and some others had already been talking about it, they probably didn't know for sure if it was true, and Zack wanted out of Corbin before he got insinuated, it was kinda close to the time when Daniel had gotten arrested, maybe.
Does any one know if, Daniel's sister able to get Her boy back from Social Services, yet?

Yeah Her son He's probably somewhere above ten years old now.

This all those drugies fault, they wanted to get drugs around Daniel's Pretty sister Jessica, it's Jeremy's fault too, but he won't bring drugs around Her Family no more.

Yeah those drug dealers see something Beautiful and want to ruin it.

I hate them stupid young drug dealing wanna be Daddies.
