Jerry Anderson's federal lawsuit against Sheriff Jones is moving forward. After the hearing in a couple of weeks, it will be set for trial. Sheriff Jones said he wouldn't change a thing about that investigation, he hasn't changed a thing about how the department does business, good officers leave and whatever is left or donates money gets rank. This lawsuit, among others, is showing what an idiot Jones really is.

I still blame all this mess on Gary Clark, He was running for office, found a scape goat in Jerry Anderson and proceded to ignore all other evidence in the case. The Sherriff's dept has insurance to cover any judgement Anderson receives and I hope he gets alot!

Policy limit is 2 million. With all the incompetence and fabricated evidence, Anderson could easily be awarded much more than 2 million. That leaves taxpayers of Caldwell on the hook for the balance.

Jones doesn't care. I can't blame Anderson though, but really, I hope he stops at the policy limit and not punish all of us. We are embarassed of this dept and all want a whole new Dept in there.

I want to know WHY THE SOUTH CAROLINA law enforcement didn't open the toolbox or check the vehicle out. Or, they did ( really who wouldn't look in a missing persons case) and the GOONS here begged the SC dept to let them have the case. Which is probably what REALLY happened. Like a dead body isn't going to smell. And the vehicle was kept locked until hauled back here. Don't bother looking for clues where this missing woman may actually be. Really ....geez.

Jerry, don't punish all of Caldwell for this incompetent dept., the one crooked jerk is gone by cancer, the mini me is in there now and all he can do is write letters to the NoNews Topic trying to justify all the stupid decisions he makes. About like ole Innocent OJ...he rode around LA to kill himself because he was innocent. So our Sheriff has to write letters to justify his decisions. Not knowing the best response is no response.

Jerry, who will be representing you????

It was seen as an attempt to prevent it from being a SC ME case and having the FBI involved at least that's the story that someone came up with quickly after the body was discovered but rest assured they honestly had no idea it was there... that's the sad past. They never went back for video surveillance of the parking lot even after the restaurant called and offered it up... too lazy or too arrogant, who knows.

The best thing that could have happened was the body to have been found in SC then at least the FBI would have been involved and the case would have probably turned out the way it should had.

Jones may have not been the Sheriff but he was the Major at the time and he was directly involved with the investigation over seeing Stafford who was also delegating to lesser or no experienced detectives. The case was doomed from the minute CCSO showed up in SC. Jones all the while was assuring Sheriff Clark that it was in the bag and he need not worry about it. I wont even bring up what all happened at the Anderson farm... seems pointless as it speaks for itself.

It goes deeper than just inadequate law enforcement. Nothing could be handled so badly, day after day, situation after situation by poor police work and accidental bad judgement and yes throw in the DA's office.

If the FBI had become involved almost all control would have been lost by the CCSD. Seems to me that the CCSD would have been head over heels happy to have the FBI have the case.

A slam dunk, FBI brings in the serious troops, guilty "parties" caught on both Federal & State charges.

What would have happened if the tool box was popped open and there was no body?

Sounds like they opened the tool box there (unofficially) then came back here to officially open it because 1- why have FBI involved, it would have let them see how things are REALLY RAN AT THE CCSO. AND, our finest cannot have that exposed. Now can he? It would have exposed the swinger mill and put an end to the easy paycheck for another job under the sheets. So yeah, I see why proper protocol wasn't followed. The CCSO HAD a whole lot to lose. Not to mention being exposed to their churches for their double lives. The SC office needs to be called in on this here too. The CCSO isn't out to help find a missing person, just protect them and theirs. Their sexual escapades. Go Jerry !!!

The tool box was locked, when Bob Keen's towing went to pick up the truck. There was no odor coming from the tool box and there was no blood leaking from the tool box. They did not open the tool box in South Carolina. The truck was impounded at Bob Keen’s body shop in Hudson. When the truck was inspected again there was blood in the truck bed. They (Bob Keen personal) forced open the tool box and found the body. I don’t recall if Sherriff personal were in attendance at that time.

The conspiracy theory was that the body was put in the truck after it was impounded at Bob Keen’s body shop.

Again we are never going to know!

Why doesn't law enforcement open it to look for clues, receipts, who knows what. A clue to show where she could have been or going. Oh yeah, too stupid.

Seems hauling back to Looserviile to search for the elephant in the room, a waste of time. Thank goodness the Sherifless Dept wasn't out finding AmberPennell.

Do I remember correctly that during the trial the coroner stated that she had died 3 days before the body was found in the tool box, but wasn't she missing for more than 6 days? My counts maybe wrong, but I know she was missing for more days than just 3.

The was no mention of bruises on her arms, wrists, legs or ankles.

Therefore where do you keep a "kidnapped" woman for those days, 3 days before you kill her?

Finally - why store an "unsearched" vehicle belonging to a kidnapped & STILL MISSING woman in garage, owned by the company that hauled it from SC, INSTEAD of a SECURED Facility (known as a Sallyport) at the CCSD?

Lots of good questions Watchdog, but not many good answers.

Yes there was a discrepancy in the time of death. The person from the body farm gave one time of death and someone else gave another time.

The CCSD didn’t and probably still doesn’t have a proper impound yard. I think it’s just a fenced in field with no garage or secured building. So they locked up the truck at the body shop. I believe someone testified this was normal procedure.
