I think you're making up facts. When did the FBI ever involve themselves in this STATE case? I may be wrong but I don't think they ever did. I do recall the FBI being involved. Give some facts to back up your position and statements.

I found this article but could not find ANYTHING regarding to an FBI final report. Therefore as far as I am concerned the FBI was "looking into the case" to appease Lori. Of course they could have issued a private report. A lot of things seem to be done in private in east Tennessee.

Knoxville, TN (2008-05-30) The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has reportedly launched an investigation into the death of slain Scott County deputy.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reported Friday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has launched a criminal probe in the shooting of the late Hubert D.“John John” Yancey, the late Scott County deputy that was shot by his former partner, Marty Carson.

8th Judicial District Attorney General William Paul Phillips, stated the article, confirmed this week that records pertaining to the Yancey case had been turned over to the FBI.

Carson is accused of intentionally shooting his former partner during a botched methamphetamine lab raid in November 2003. Last November, Carson was found civilly liable in Yancey’s death and his widow, Lori Yancey Ellis, was awarded $5 million in compensatory damages.

After the trial, the State reopened its investigation into the case. Earlier this year, the FBI reportedly took over the investigation at the direction of the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

In March, a U.S. District Judge Thomas Varlan denied Carson’s petition for a new trial.

It's funny how folks resort to claiming someone is an idiot because they can't refute the point that was made.

Facts are facts. The TBI investigated the case not once but twice (a new investigation was launched after the civil jury returned a guilty verdict) and didn't find merit for criminal charges, then the FBI got involved with its own investigation, as bluejay posted above.

And, no, you won't see anything on the FBI's final report. That's how they choose to do business - close to the vest. If their investigations result in a criminal indictment, they'll make that public. If their investigations result in no findings, they're silent on that. The FBI is involved in investigations every day that no one knows about. It has nothing to do with East TN; that's the way the FBI does its business everywhere, and has ever since Hoover ran things. The FBI actually doesn't even confirm or deny that it is involved in an investigation, which is why the story quoted by bluejay says "reportedly" more than once.

funny how idiots just make up facts without any basic in fact. No additional TBI investigation was done. The statement related to the TBI was made by Paul Phillips when he said "if" any additional information was found to prove that the shooting was willful, then he (Phillips) would again refer the matter to the TBI. As of this date he never has therefore there were not two TBI investigations as you state. Again, please use citations to articles when you make such outrageous statements. Otherwise you look more and more like an idiot who just pukes up useless and untruthful information. As for me, I see you as a big mouthed idiot anyway so just keep spewing your nonsense.

I am glad Lori was appointed. She has more than enough qualifications for the position. She is well known throughout the district as she was involved in cases in every county. I have worked with her on several of the cases of individuals that I arrested. She was more than willing to listen and accept my input towards the prosecution of the individual. She will make Scott County and the 8th Judicial District a great Attorney General.
Some know as fact that you put your desires ahead of your duty Mr.Reed. You in many instances did not know anything pertaining to the other individual or individuals involved in many of the domestic cases you were involved with other than the FACT you had sexual interest in the female you were trying to impress, if Mrs. Phillip knew your intentions your sorry self would have been put under the jail!

My first instinct was to tell you to look for yourself; Google is a powerful thing. But I figured what the heck. These references make it pretty clear that there were two TBI investigations. I would be cautious about calling someone an idiot if I weren't certain of what I was talking about, if I were you.

"Meanwhile, a probe into Yancey’s death has been re-opened at the state level. Phillips said in the November 14 news release that the TBI “is investigating the recent allegations that came out of the civil case in federal district court.” Once that investigation is complete, he said, criminal charges will be filed if necessary."

You obviously miss the point. I have nothing negative to say about this lady. In fact I am sure that she will do a wonderful job. She has the experience and is involved in the community. For that I am grateful. My point is that this sort of thing goes on all the time. Offices such as District Attorney General are very important jobs and the people who fill these jobs should be selected the way the law intended. The way that politicians see to it that their job is handed down from one family member to another is this very way. A long time office holder runs for re-election, is elected, then before his or her term ends then they "retire." Don't think for one second that Phillips didn't know in advance who his successor would be before he stepped down. A deal was struck with the governor. I think this sort of act brings dishonor both on Phillips, his niece, and his office.
What's more I am saddened that this topic has only received little response from the community. This fact speaks volumes about the apathy for truly important issues in this community. Put someones name on this site, talk about whom they are seeing and the board lights up with comments.
Oh well, if the people of this county want to be treated as sheep then so be it. As for me I have lost all respect that I had for Phillips. People constantly bitch about the problems in this county, but when it comes to doing something about it they are all deaf, dumb, and blind. So very sad.
No one is being treated unfairly. The system that we have in place will allow for an election at the end of the term, but until that time the position, under our current system, says that this position will be appointed by the Governor. Now whether you like it or not that is the legal system.

In order for the district to vote now, we would have to have a special election. Elections cost money. That is why we have our current system of appointment when a person resigns. The Jones family did not put that system into place, our elected officials did a long time ago.

Who believes anything Paul Phillips had to say about the John John case.Because he was quoted in a news article does not make anything he says true.

I know Lori Phillips-Jones and she is one of the finest individuals I know. I agree that she is a young but she's a lot older a lot of people who have been appointed or elected to public office. Give her a chance to learn her job and do her job and then, in two years, we'll see if she's earned the right to keep it. Isn't that a fair deal and the Christian thing to do? But I can tell you that whether or not she gets elected two years from now, she is a great person and a huge asset to our community. If you are not willing to give her a chance, then you surely don't know her. Just try to get to know her before 2014 and look at her job performance while she's in office and then you'll have a basis for knowing whether or not you should vote for her or against her.

"she has the experience...." that is totally false, she has minimal experience at best. She is a nice lady. A very good person to be on all of these boards she so seeks but head of five counties in prosecuting criminals. WRONG!!!! It wouldnt matter if she was appointed by Uncle Paul and appointed by the Governor, wrong person for that Job period!!! You are right it was wrong but that is how politics rolls in Scott County. In 2014, someone will run against Lori (if she elects to run). More than likely that someone will be a better choice for that job. You must vote out the nepotism, and the political way if you are agains this type of shenanigans.

"give her a chance to learn her job and do her job....." WHY DO WE NEED TO GIVE HER A CHANCE???? There were at least 6 or 7 attorneys in the District Attorney's Office who were competent enough to take over and who already knew the job... Jeffers, Barclay, Galloway, to name a few. It seems to me that the only reason she was appointed was because of Uncle Paul. You yourself admit that she needed to "learn her job". Nothing like giving the girl a 130k year job to learn on. Can we say that was a big silver spoon??? golly, I wish someone could give me a silver spoonful of 130K to "learn" a job.

Actually, it wil resurface in another year or so. It appears some of her friends have expressed themselves over my opinions based upon FACTS. Unrefutable facts. Yes true hard and cold facts. Sometimes true facts hurt but it needed to be said. It hurts when it applies to someone who is a really nice person. Just because you are a really nice person and your uncle got you a job doesnt mean that you are fit for that type of employment. Let's all remember that when you are called to vote in 2014 (if she runs for election).

Lori Phillips-Jones and the men you named were all Assistant District Attorneys. Being THE District Attorney is a different job description all together. Any of the men that you have named would have to have time to learn that job. It'd be crystal clear to you if you knew anything about running an office. Interesting that it's only the male assistants that you have named as able to do the job.

Lori has been an assistant child support attorney for many years. Big difference there Mrs. Scoot. Wouldnt you agree it is a big difference or would you like for me to elaborate? In fact, if Uncle Paul would have chosen the "most qualified" female assistant, who do you think that would have been? I named the ones who I knew, you enlighten me.

i just know that during a friends child support case that Lori "misplaced" his payment receipts and then miraculously found them after the case was settled. I guess it didnt hurt that Lori was good friends with the woman trying to cheat the system. And now she's our DAG? all fathers, good or bad, had better hide your wallets and empty those bank accounts.
