you are both very ignorant.
it's funny to me how they dub Kinney as a "highschool dropout." let us all count how many people in the military were highschool dropouts... 1..2...4....67....etc.
also, did you all know that McKay sexually molested Kenney on SEVERAL occasions? Did you? Did you know that McKay's ex-fiance had a restraining order against him? THat he was the biggest Prick in Northern NH? Hmm... Did you know that this marine was nuts and was never allowed to hold a fire arm again? that he had been arrested several times for several gun related and rage offences?
I'm glad that fucking pig cop is dead, and I hope that his rotting soul burns with the fury of a thousand other cops' in the future.
RIP Liko. <3

You know these things for a fact? You seem to be a friend of Liko. Was any of this reported? Is there documentation? Where could I find this information? Not saying this to an a**. Just curious as to where you got this from? This whole thing was a tradgey. Should have happened another way, but hind sight is 20/20. My heart goes out to all who are hurt by this ! Just looking for facts.

I was not a friend of Liko's. But his family friend's include my boyfriend's mother. The insodent happened in my boyfriend's father's yard, and his wife was the first on the scene.

There is not any documented info about any of the abuse, as small towns rarely let this kind of stuff out, and the cops make sure you keep quiet.

I have a lot of info about all of this. THere were way more gunshots than just the 5 (the 4 that hit McKay and the 1 that got Liko) as my BF's father's barn has SEVERAL gun shots in it. The officers that were first on the scene demanded Liko's passenger to pick up Liko's gun that was on the ground. So they would have an excuse to kill him.... These cops did this too me when they demanded that i pick up a beer can that was on the side of the road.... there is a lot of evidance against McKay, and these tightly knit cops arent going to let any of this info out.

Here is something new NEW that is going on up here: There is a missing girl from Easton, NH (right next to Lincoln.... the last email correspondance she had was with Floy's son (the marine who killed Liko).... there is something going on up here. Something big time, and I'm hoping that all this opens up....etc..etc...etc..

The responce I gave was to things being said in other posts that were not in any articles that I read. As for asking for documentation I asked because it was stated he was molested by the officer. I was asking as to weahter this happened as a child and was it reported to anyone including lawyers. I never read a post as to a cavaity search so have no idea where you got that from. It wasnt from me. Please reread my post I was asking for facts I gave no oppinion as to my beliefs in this case. I was a corrections officer for 4 years and know a little bit about the things you mentioned . Which by the way I never said anything about those things. As I said I was asking if complaints or reports had been made to anyone, which if you ask me is what a person should do before making comments on or giving oppinions .By the way you have to have a court order signed by a judge in IN for a cavity search and it must be prefromed by a doctor not an officer but once again as I said that is in IN. So hello read my post and think about what I asked and realize I wasn't doing anything but ask questions instead of making stupid comments.UUUGHH

I've learned one thing sincemoving up here. Everyone knows your business. And what they don't know they will make up. Anything for Drama.Even kids in elementary schools say things about people that no child should even know about. You know they hear it somewhere. These kids say things that could totally destroy someones life and they don't even bat an eyelash. Of course they are children and they truly don't know the consequences if their words. Like you I like to know the facts.

As a former child protetction administrator I advise you to contact the NH US attorney and make a statement on this case. NH AG et al are covering up. I spend much time in the Franconia region and have done some homework. Rte 116 is on a federal right of way giving the feds jurisdiction to investigate and prosecute. They can and should start with Floyd, who, according to many blogs, and even the NH AG, "could not have known" whether McKay was dead or alive when Floyd shot and in my judgment murdered Kenney, violating NH and federal deadly force statutes. Certainly a history of sexual abuse by McKay would explain Kenney's actions and would have excused him legally from murder, and perhaps any crime at all. If there are connections between Floyd, McKay and child or police sex abuse as some have speculated, this is a truly dangerous case, which some politicians want to disappear.

If you are up to it, make an appointment with the NH US attorney and discuss what you know. That office told me they would accept such statements and pursue any criminal leads. This case bothers me enough that I have complained in writing to my US senator and congressman and called them twice to press for a federal investigation, as none of us are safe on federal lands where gun felons are at large.

Courage. Truth will out in the end if we work for justice. Liko deserves this.

So very true. We must unite as citizens, friends and familie members of Liko's. His death must not be in vein. This will in time happen to another loved one. Someone elses son, daughter, mother, father, or child. Liko's family, please post a date and time when we can meet to unite unite to fight this injustice(s). We pay these guys salaries. I did not even know Liko but I am so livid because of this event(s). This is not right ? May you rest in peace Liko, no longer live and fear and know we will continue your battle for you. I am sorry you went through this trauma.

Hey sorry,

Just saw this today. I did take your post wrong. I had just come from another forum that was saying it didn't even matter if McKay was a rogue cop or if he harassed Liko and crap like, "good riddance low-life". Transference - my apologies.

Sadly, people would be slammed even harder if they tried to find justice. It is a horrible tragedy and I am disgusted with the "Hero cop, brave marine and loser high school dropout" routine. It is so far from that. Obviously, nothing justifies Liko shooting McKay but it is far more complex and I can tell you that there are many adults dealing with their own guilt at not stepping up prior to this. The only thing is that your safety is only guaranteed in numbers so perhaps these deaths will not be in vain.

People will not be silent about this and it is truly sad that outsiders want to say the entire town is nuts and skum hippies. Just not true. I believe that the TRUTH will prevail in the end.

McKay was the baddest of the bad. There is a problem throughout the state of NH with PD and ST. Secrets can be kept in small towns and people would be amazed at what goes on.

I know a lot of information about that evening and the history of both men directly. Why didn't the AG give Caleb's (passenger) statement to the press?

In the state of NH the PD and ST do body cavity searches at their own discretion and as many times as they choose while you are in questioning. I am sure they are not SUPPOSED to do it repeatedly but there is no one there to monitor them. There is a name for such behavior and it is sexual abuse.

Could not have said it better "G". I so hope it is true and that justice for Liko will prevail. If people only knew.......

I doubt Floyd has any trouble with what he did at all. Remember the woman Ellie that works at the corner store said he came in wanting the paper announcing he was the one that shot the kid. She said it really freaked her out because it was said as casually as if he had shot a rabbit.

Caleb is the one I worry about and I hope all of his friends give him plenty of support and stick close to him. He is the only witness from start to finish.

True. I heard that too.

floyd: "hey you got any more newspapers?"
employee: "no, they sold out."
floyd: "yeah, i shot the kid."

-disgusting.

And caleb...the poor thing. way too much for any person to have to go through in a span of their life...nevermind compacted into 10 minutes.

I hope he tells it the way it happened. I hope he is safe from the cops- because if there IS something to cover-up, you know full well they are going to try to hush caleb as much as possible.

Peace to him.

Not to mention the treatment he went through once in custody and the hours upon hours of questioning he was subjected to.

The anti police comments here are outrageous. McKay was never convicted of any domestic violence assaults or did he have any active restraining orders, if he did he would not have been a cop, says the Lautenberg act. As for McKay sexually assaulting Kenney, says who. The only reference I have found to any sexual assault was when Kenney was being disorderly and resisted arrest back in 2003. He was screaming "Help, they're molesting me". I would be curious who can come forward and put some credibility to those accusations. Kenney was the one that assaulted McKay by grabbing him by the balls. I would like to find some credibility to comments about McKay broke his jaw and put him in a come. The only way for that to happen is to get his medical records from the assault in 2003. He was cleared by the local hospital with no serious injuries.
