I am so grateful that an arrest was finally made in the murder of Jennifer Whipkey. No one deserves to die such a horrible, senseless way. I pray she rests in peace. I pray justice is brought about swiftly.

I'm sure he did post bail - that's why you don't see his face anywhere. Watch your close friends and family members could still be out there.

He was unable to post the $750,000 bail that was set & remains in the county jail.

I have been unable to find any info regarding the status of this case in the last year, does anyone know when trial will begin and this scum can be removed to the prison he belongs in for the rest of his pathetic life?
