So his cousin is sick of him (Parsons) being made out to be a bad person....
"He was a father, a son, a friend and family member to many..."

HELLO!!! So was Officer Larry Cox. He was the innocent person and Parsons his killer. Cox was trying to help catch Parsons after he committed a criminal act.

The way I see it.........he Is the BAD person here.

Sounds like they will catch him soon. He might as well give it up, and let them have him. I'm sure his family is having a hard time with all this, but imagine what the Cox family is going through. Just added heart ache for them. My heart goes out to the Cox family.

to know john parsons know one would or could fathum that he could of committed the crime he is accused of. maybe local law enforcement should take another look at the one who gave them all their information in the beginning. A brother to parsons had a violent history and a lot to gain by putting the blame on john.

OK. Then John Parsons did not try to help police, did not provide an alibi, escaped from jail and is on the run because he is innocent??? I guess I don't see that. You can say he is scared and paint a picture to protect him like the attorney will try to do that will eventually represent him (if he is brought in alive). But, facts are facts and unless some criminal loving attorney that has never been a victim of a serious crime finds loopholes to get Parsons off the hook (God help society),then he will eventually be brought to justice. I'm sure when he has his day in court and the facts are presented, you will be on here saying that poor John could be rehabilitated!

yes his brother boes have a scar! i heard his brother is testifing against john.and yes has been convicted listen to the media(news and the news papers)they have him convicted because that is what law enforcement they no longer need to have a trail what chance would he have now!the chance he has is for the real killer to step up and stop blaiming his own brother!

Matt I wonder where you stand on other issues involving the rights people are supposed to have facing a trial. You already have him convicted and on death row, so I guess you would be out of the jury pool.

What about innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt ? If the original wanted description put out says the offender had a scare on his face and this guy don't , I wiuld say that should give the jury some of that . Think about it , It is because of people like you that may have caused this guy to run . Fearing he would never get a fair trial.

So Parsons is not guilty you say. Ok What ever. If he is not guilty then why didn't he stay in his nice safe jail cell and face trial. Where if he was not guilty he could have proved this. Any attorney worth his salt should be abel to get off a person who has not commited a crime. In this case it may have taken a change in venue. If you run, and leave the safty of a jail cell to be tracked down by angry cops because you are a accused cop killer, it leads one to truly believe he done the crime. So may be he didn't mean to kill Officer Cox and he was trying to miss and was a bad shot he still must pay for what he has done.
Plus these people are treating him like he has never done anything wrong before. So then why has he spent prison time before (I'm sure these people will tell us he didn't do that either). It's not like he hasn't been convicted of a jury of his peers on numerous other crimes before. He just was moving up in his crimes. And don't you think he was thinking hay I am already an ex-con I don't want to go back if I do I will get life or even put to death. So say what you want he's either an idiot or guilty.

john did spend time in prison for a crime so that makes him guilty for killing a cop i really don't think so ?and why would an unarmed ,off duty cop run after a man in the dark knowing the person he was chasing just commited ARMED robbery i am not blaming larry cox but what could he have thinking.and just because john has been in prison doesn't mean he did this crime .the tape from the store tape showing the man who was robbing it did not look like no 190lb.man to me and where is his scar .better yet why don't they show a picture of his brother. and nobody said that john wore wings on his back but it is people like you that have him convicted it is a shame more people don't more about what is really going on like his brother is testifing against him well guess what he has a scar on his cheek and i bet he is the same size has the guy on the stores tape .hell figure it your self

It is not for us to figure out. that is what courts are for. And until he comes before a court this is all just specualtion. Unless, you say it was you that did the deed, and that is a whole diffrent story.

John Parsons does not have the scar but yes his brother does.It is a shame that grown ups can convict a man that they do not know,justice only comes when the right peson the real killer is charged and convicted.

I just do not understand the lies about ALL of this. When the crime happened, the police reported there were 2 people involved; a driver and a passenger. The passenger robbed the store and had a scar on his face. After Parsons was arrested, all talk stopped about the scar and the 2nd person. When AMW portrayed the incident, they also did not include another man. They also said Cox's wife was home waiting on him when everyone knows Cox and his wife were getting a divorce. Why muddle the facts? Cox was a nice guy and did not deserve this..but if you lie about 1 thing, what else are you lying about? There is something very fishy going on here. Where is the 2nd guy??????????

Okay everyone. the police are not even giving all of you the whole story. yes Officer Larry cox was a very close person to me. i had him in dare for 8 years. but the first person they thought who killed officer cox was a black guy. now they think John Parsons did it. you guys dont know half the story. i know plunty..and now im hearing today. right now. that they have found john parsons in massiville. im not sure if thats true or not.
