Did the Grand Jury hear the case today? If so can someone in the know please post the outcome and what was released to the public (If Anything) I know the wheels of justice turns slow....but there are a few people that would like to be sure that justice is served. And that no one else will be a victim like Emily!

What motives where presented to the Grand Jury today?
More than the obvious ones of divorce and insurance?
I figure that Emily's family has already asked LE to check the Partnership Agreement in TN.
I think there may have been multiple, large, life insurance policys, a corporation policy and a personal policy.

How many lawyers, other than the court appointed attorney, are working on Jerry's defense?

I just found it in the Charlotte Observer....Now perhaps the good people of Sawmills will know what a lier looks like and talks like. I never had any doubt that the good police work of the Caldwell county Sheriff's office and the FBI would see through the smoke screen put up by Jerry Anderson and would have enough evidence for an indictment. Thanks to all of them!

On Monday, Jerry Anderson was indicted of killing his wife, Emily Anderson, back in December. Jerry Anderson, 46 and from Sawmills, was indicted for killing his wife. The grand jury had a close door hearing on Monday. According to new reports, the District Attorney will be deciding here in the next few weeks whether to take the death penalty or not. Prosecuters are expected to ask the trial date to be set for March 6. Anderson is still in the Caldwell County Detintion Center without bond.

What did Emily know about the Maymead/ High Mountain Holsteins agreement that could have been a danger to her if she told the partners that she wanted out? Now that Roark has a new corporation called Dairy Operations, Inc. signed off on by Carl Hartley; their strategist and moneyman located here in Chattanooga, will it come out that Jerry may have been only a front man and had little financial liability in the CAFO though both he and Maymead often said otherwise? Why was High Mountain Holstein stock shuffled around mid December before Emily disappeared? Did this impact the partnership?
Was there manipulation of state or federal grant funds?

If Mr. Anderson had the assets to use as collateral for the supposed million dollar loans he was getting, where did the assets go? How does life or corporate insurance fit into the High Mountain Holsteins partnership and what does Emily's death have to do with it, if anything?

Again, why wasn't any effort made to find Emily in Johnson County after she went missing? Even though Roark stated that he was close to the family, we heard here that he made no effort to locate her in the Mountain City area. Apparently no posters were put up and local law enforcement didn't seem to be in on the investigation. Why?

It is also interesting that these people involved claim to be Christian, but are willing to lie, even under oath and have done so frequently. This everyone knows. How can folks in Johnson County keep looking the other way?

The Johnson County families involved in the CAFO should be ashamed of themselves as they go ahead with their plans despite the ugliness and evil associated with the CAFO. Does Maymead's need to win overcome any sense of human decency? Their partner killed his wife. They hand picked Jerry to partner with and on many occasions testified that he was a good man. What does this say about them and their character?

What does Jerry Anderson know that he shouldn't know about corporate doings in Johnson County? Did he realize that he was being used?

Will Maymead attorneys help with Mr. Anderson's defense behind the scenes?

You have asked some very interesting questions that I assume (hope) the FBI and Caldwell County Sheriff's Dept are already investigating. If LE have not gotten a court order to see Anderson's Parternship Agreements with TN CAFO, they should, and ASAP. Paper shreders are common office equip these days.

Multiple motives would only strenghten the DA's case. In this day and age of killers, using high profile lawyers, getting off scott free (or plea bargining for a lesser sentence) I certainly hope LE gathers as much evidence as they can for an air tight case.
