Wow! I'd like to say I'm surprised, but law enforcement in Vermilion County is broken at all levels. I remember my last trip to traffic court.

I saw the State's Attorney let EVERY PERSON before me go. There were people that had gotten tickets for passing stopped school busses with no insurance, ADMITTING they were guilty and uninsured, and being let go with no fines, no charges, not even court supervision.

Yet the county needs money in the worst way?

I guess the good news is as long as you can survive the beating, tasing, or harrasment...at least you won't be charged.

THE 3rd SUSPECT HAS HAD ALL CHARGEz DROPPED!!?? NOT to turn states evidence...NOT for any plea....I guess he just came up w/the right $$$ amount huh?? SAD.
Im not claimin' to be too hip on the law, BUT I was pretty positive that IF YOU WERE PRESENT while a felony was being committed, you were JUST AS RESPONSIBLE as the person/persons committing the crime?? WTF?!!!!
SHOULD THE LEVERENZ's & McCULLOUGH's have to even THINK for ONE SECOND they could run into this guy in public?!! REALLY?? How wrong iz that!?

He's not off the hook yet, but as "swiftly" as the investigation and trial of this triple murder (from March 2007) are moving, seems ALL involved may be in their graves before "justice is served."

According to both the NG and CN, the victims' families were consulted prior to the State's Attorney's action, so let's hope all in charge are being super-careful with their strategies here. Regardless, the one who allegedly pulled the trigger is not going anywhere soon if he's serving a 25-year sentence in federal prison for a drug conviction. Overall, let's hope all the criminals involved here will get what they deserve, eventually.

"Other factors ... also were taken into account in the decision. Family members of the victims were consulted before the decision was made.... Charges could be re-filed against Moore later as part of the prosecution of the remaining defendants in the case.... No other information would be released regarding the cases at this point because of the ongoing prosecution."

(By the way, on my computer that NG link needs to have a period inserted immediately after it in order for the browser to go to the actual article. Either the NG doesn't like to allow such links or perhaps they get altered when Topix abbreviates them. Too bad, both are informative articles about this whole sordid unresolved mess.)

That's very touching. I know that when I read the news stories concerning the murders, I thought, "I'll bet that guy only tagged along to sell Girl Scout Cookies while the others did their business!"

Over five and a half years later, is anyone still following this travesty of justice?(Original article referenced above is no longer available but most local people know when "Danville's triple murder" is mentioned, exactly what mess it is.)

Current unresolved state of the mess:

I am so relieved the charges were dropped. Justice was served. Kayla Harris is so right!
The same thing happened to my brother. He went to a house in Danville with 2 registered sex offenders. He was just tagging along at 2am for no particular reason and just happened to observe a B&E and then videotape some violent rapes on his cell phone. But he didn't do anything bad himself which is why I'm so glad the charges were dropped even after he confessed. That's Danville justice for you. Still, it's a shame he had to be charged at all. I mean, how did he know violent, repeated rapists would do something so vile like that in the middle of the night? It's unreal people attack my brother when they don't know him like I do. People should not judge him by the company he keeps, his actions, his past criminal record for burglary or all the times rape charges were dropped because he wasn't convicted of those things anyhow. Haters gonna hate, like they say!

The crack whorre industry in Danville has never recovered since McCullough and Leverenz were decommissioned. Even the Vermilion County Health Department has had it bad, with the STD rates falling to levels not seen since 2005. If it wasn't for Danville City Hall constantly needing tests, the good folks at the Health Department would be out of a job.

Finally!!!

"Nearly six years after three Danville residents were gunned down on the city's east side, a Chicago man was sentenced to three consecutive life terms in prison for their murders.

U.S. District Judge Michael McCuskey also ordered that 34-year-old Freddell L. Bryant, also known as 'Freddy Moe,' begin serving the back-to-back life terms after the 25-year term he's currently serving in federal prison for the underlying cocaine and crack cocaine distribution conspiracy convictions.

It was the maximum sentence that Bryant could receive under the law."

The Danville branch paid Fredell Bryant $500 for killing the crack dealer/pimp who pinched the Chicago drugg supplier, and even though the little crack whorres McCullough and Leverenz got knocked up and had welfare and their grandparents taking care of their fetal alcohol syndrome rettards, Crimestoppers paid Bryant $750 each because diseases went down amongst Johns so much on that end. The two whorres got poked one last time, but they were so high they didn't even notice. Neither one has seen their child in weeks. "Another oone bites the dust ...."
