Woman slain at KKK rite

Eight people have been arrested in connection with the slaying Sunday of a Tulsa, Okla., woman who tried to back out of a weekend Ku Klux Klan initiation at a remote campsite in northeastern St. Tammany Parish, authorities said.

Raymond “Chuck” Foster, 44, of Bogalusa, who authorities said is a high-ranking Klan member, is accused of shooting the unidentified white woman with a .40-caliber handgun during an argument Sunday afternoon about her intention to leave the initiation, authorities said Tuesday.

Foster and the seven other white men and women implicated in the case tried to cover up the slaying, St. Tammany and Washington Parish sheriff’s deputies said.

Someone had removed the bullet from the woman’s body, investigators determined. The woman’s clothing, other personal effects and the campsite next to a sandbar in the Pearl River Navigation Canal were set afire, said Capt. George Bonnett, St. Tammany Parish sheriff’s spokesman.

Deputies identified the seven as Shane Foster, 20; Frank Stafford, 21; Timothy Michael Watkins, 30; Alicia M. Watkins, 23; Andrew Yates, 20; Random Hines, 27; and Danielle Jones, 23.

The shooting victim, whose identity has not been confirmed, was recruited over the Internet and was supposed to return to Oklahoma after joining the KKK in Louisiana to start recruiting new members, St. Tammany Parish sheriff’s deputies said in a statement.

The woman arrived by bus last week in Slidell, met two people, and during the weekend was taken to the campsite, deputies said.

Washington Parish sheriff’s investigators became aware of her death early Monday morning after getting an anonymous tip about two men turning up at a Circle K convenience store near Bogalusa with bloodstains on their clothes, said Shannon Lyons, deputy chief of the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office Criminal Division.

Frank Stafford and Shane Foster, who is Chuck Foster’s son, went into the store north of the intersection of La. 16 and La. 21 and asked the store clerk how to get bloodstains out of their clothing, Bonnett said.

Once alerted, investigators found the woman’s body Monday a few miles south of the campsite under loose brush at the end of Lock No. 3 Road near the village of Sun, deputies said.

Until the police release her name, we can just refer to her as "Darwin Nominee" since she's now been nominated for a Darwin Award.

Named in honor of Charles Darwin, the father of evolution, the Darwin Awards commemorate those who improve our gene pool by removing themselves from it.

I didn't get too worked up over his/her comments. Anyone who doesn't know the difference between ethnic cleansing and ethical cleaning isn't to be taken seriously.

Sorry that I was not clear on that matter I did not use the term "ethnic cleansing" due to the fact that i do not approve of abusing persons because they belong to a different race or worship a different god than i do. It was an attempt to put a play on words being that it is un "ethical" to practice "ethnic cleansing" thats why we went to Bosnia right.I arealy don't care one way or another if you take me seriously or not I have served my country and i am a productive member of society as for the post on waging war against hate groups such as the klan,black panther party still stands for me we are americans white black yellow and brown so lets all try and get along. sorry for any confusion i may have caused.
