Don't you think that it is a little strange no one talk about Ray Brown's murder? No newspaper articles asking for information in 2 years. Let me hear what you people in Winnfield think about it or anyone else who may be interested. If this had been a black on white crime - I believe the police would have arrested someone by now. It goes to show how much effort if put into giving blacks equal justice. Winnfield should be in the spotlight along with Jena.

I think it is horrible when any family is left without answers. Black or white.

I bet the families involved are in a lot of pain...

I am a white citizen from Winn Parish and I am very concerned about the murder of Ray Brown. I am terrified that the murderer has never been caught. I too am concerned that we never hear about this and what the status is of the case. This case needs to be solved and his family needs closure.

You know it is a shame that this family hasnt got any closure. There is so much that this town just hasnt done. What is the problem? You have to work on it. It isnt going to walk to you and fall in your lap. I suggest that people get off of it and get to work on some of these cases.

I can tell you the case is active and that Det. Darrell Winder is assigned to it along with other investigators and that is has not been swept under the rug or forgotten.

Much hard work has been put into it, Det. Winder is in touch with the victim's wife when necessary and it is the only unsolved major crime the sheriff's office has.

For those doubters and there will be some as this forum has turned into a bashing contest, think back to the murder of two elderly African-American females several years ago in the Dodson area. Your sheriff's office took three years to solve it but got the job done and got a conviction on a white man who lived 70 miles away. The sheriff's office solved this case with little evidence left at the scene.

So have faith, know that the case is not forgotten, know that Det. Winder is capable and working on it, and be assured that when enough evidence is developed arrests will be made. Rest assured the pride the sheriff's detectives have is causing them grief on this case as well as long as it is unsolved.

It is easy for those who don't know what is going on to criticize those who do. The sheriff's office and it's employees need our support, not criticism unless criticism is due. In this case criticism is not due.

Well thats good to hear that it is being worked on. The main thing is to let the family know that you are trying. Does Winnfield have a victim Advocate? This family is deserate for Clossure. Until you have walked in their shoes you can't possibly know. But I am glad to hear that Darrell is working on this. Please dont give up.

Isn't there a victim advocate designated by the sheriff's office? I was told that there was one there. And if so why haven't they contacted the family and handled this?

Most everywhere the victim advocate is out of the DAs office but it may be out of the herriffs office here. The family needs to contact them.

Well, for all you arm chair quarterbacks from another arm chair quarterback, let's think about this.

Winn Parish had one unsolved murder, the Ray Brown case, in many, many years. I won't dwell on that one as someone said Darrell Winder was actively working it, I know Darrell, and I believe in him to the fullest. Keep in mind, one, uno,(1) unsolved murder over the past 16 years that Winder and the other deputies have been there. Not bad. Wonder how many there are in other comparable places? I say that to say this: I have full confidence in our sheriff's office that they are trying to solve the Brown murder. Sometimes, crimes go unsolved and none of us really know the entire circumstances surrounding this case.

That brings us to the current murder case. First off there is no way to determine yet, if I understand correctly, what all evidence they have and if it is being analyzed at some lab (a crime lab was called in) and what all is having to be done to make a good case. We need to be patient, unlike television you don't see cases solved this quickly when someone is shot to death and not discovered for several hours or days or weeks. And we do want the police to make a good case, not just throw someone in jail without having thoroughly investigated and made the right decisions. Ya'll know that some court down the road will try to find a reason to throw out a conviction, right?

Better police protection would lead us to have a deputy or police officer stationed at every home 24 hours a day guarding the door. Not a one of us could be stopped from killing someone if we set our minds to do it and that includes all of you crying for better police protection. And many of us would not want the police looking at "everything" we do, right?

Now, who said this was a drug related killing? You are assuming. I think we need to keep our mouths shut until we find out that local law enforcement has fumbled the ball or done something to be criticized over. And we need to keep our mouth shut about this lady and her family. Show some respect. I hesitated to get on here and reply but it seems to me someone needs to prevail and remind you all that:

1) some crimes never get solved.

2) crime can happen anywhere there are people and we are lucky to live in a fairly safe place

3) it's always the police's fault, not the parents or upbringing folks get and all the rumors you here ain't so

4) dope is everywhere and always has been and always will be and no sheriff, police, citizen can or will stop it, the jail is full right now, in fact the police and sheriff's jail are both full of people on dope charges. It is funny how we want everyone in jail until it comes to our kids and then it's not their fault because they got with the wrong crowd

5) we need to respect the law and the police and especially the family of this lady

Check the national average on crime. Winnfield and Winn Parish are way low. Be thankful you live where you do.

Actually, no. I am obligated to another candidate in the first primary voting. If it comes down to my man not making the 2nd round I'll decide then. I have nothing against Buddy Jordan, just obligated somewhere else right now.

Thank you for taking the time to explain to us po-dunk Winn Parish citizens that crimes don't happen, get solved and prosecuted in 1 hour like they do on Law and Order and CSI:New York.

I will have to stop criticizing local law enforcement. I had no idea things worked this way, thank you for enlightening us...I feel really embarassed now...Good golly, crimes don't get solved as quickly as they do on TV....wow, I am glad we all have screen names and you can not see me because my face is so red with embarassment!

Crimes don't solved in an hour....I need to ponder this one for a while
