This is a strange case. I don't recall do we know a cause of death or have they kept that secret? It sure was made to look like a robbery but wasn't the body found near a remote piece of property that she was involved with owning or buying somehow? I find it hard to believe that the average GR scumbag that would rob her, murder her, steal her car, steal her purse would just happen to dump her body out in Ottawa County near a piece of property she had something to do with. Sounds to me like an inside job made to look like a scumbag robbery.
The other odd thing is that the purse and car were found in rather busy areas. Of course they are not busy at 4 a.m. but they are not in the middle of no where for sure.
You are right about it being kept secret. Maybe the cops know more than they are telling even the family, but after 2 years you would think they would let something leak just go get justice for the family of Ms. Kelly.

Why do you think a leak would help? Are you schooled in police work?

I wish I were involved in police work, I would get alot more answers to many questions that I have about several cases that are still unsolved. My saying that a leak may just nail the individual who is responsible for this death is just a hunch that I have.

She doesn't want people to think Troy Brake was involved, apparently she thinks constant rambling will make people forget that Troy is the most likely suspect based on the other crimes he has been convicted of....

You could be right about that, but after 2 years the police should have something more to go on than what they have now which seems to be nothing. Dont blame Troy Brake for every crime that comes along because there just might be the slim chance that he is not guilty for all of them. He was been convicted of 4 murders already, what more can they do to him if he is guilty of Ms Kellys murder, put him in jail, he is already there.

Well, I think you're wrong about that. I think that the police have a little more experience with these things than you. I had heard several things that were never publicized, because I do know people from her agency. And I'm not sharing them. Police aren't perfect, but we can't do their jobs for them.

I could very well be wrong, and I know nothing about police or detective work, but from no answers for 2 years, I feel they are not doing enough to solve this crime.

One thing that was released during the investigation was that they were investigating a Troy Brake connection. Yes, he's already in jail. But what do you say to Janna's friends and family about this crime if he were involved? This crime still needs to be solved.

Maybe they do have some suspects in mind, just not enough evidence.

Wasnt the connection that they spoke about was the fact that her wallet or purse was found in the area where he worked at Pridgeon and Clay? THere are dumpsters all over GR. COrrect me if I am wrong about this please and could you tell what the connection was?

The car wash is not near P&C, it is on Burton right across the street from the picnic table where he beat the hooker but that is a pretty weak connection. It is not like either place is a special hiding place, they are right out in the open on a busy street. I can't beleive they seriously think that is a link that makes Brake a suspect. I'd be focusing in on the source of the info that sent them to Ottawa County in the first place, that source knows something.

Do you know who that source is that knows something? Can you give any hints without giving yourself away?

Thanks JVC. So sad, so many unanswered questions. I just don't understand how someone can take another human life.

They didn't publicize why they were investigating a Troy Brake connection. It seems to me it happened around the time the body was discovered, though.

I was under the impression that they had received pings from her cell phone when they investigated the Ottawa County location, but were unable to locate her body at the time due to the snow. At least that is what the news reported when it happened.

And it was a different area of Ottawa County than where she was ultimately found. Like opposite poles.

I have no idea who the source is or what they said. I am only saying that the fact that the get a tip that says something to the effect that the body is in an Ottawa County field and then they find the body a few miles a way in an Ottawa County field is an indication that the source of the tip has a pretty good source of info. If the body had been found in Indian Trails Golf Course near her home I would not have said that but although not right on the tip was close. I have no personal knowledge other than what is here and in the media.

Thanks for clarifying that for me Pete. I still have this feeling in my gut that Troy Brake is innocent of the Wright Murders, especially after Tarahs dad and the other guy were arrested for the sexual crime that they committed. I am probably way off base with this, but I have learned in the past to follow what my gut says and it is screaming that something is fishie about those two. Any man who would molest his own daughter like Craddocks did to his daughter Tarah is not above anything else criminal.
