With that statement Kim, you've certainly eliminated yourself for the list of people smart enough to do the crime.

There are several there that will not even be interviewed by FSD for that very same reason. Seriously, a monkey could do line work.

Take them to a dry county and sell it for double the retail cost or sell them to bars that lost their liquor license.

Not really just because a bar doesn't have a license to serve hard liquor don't mean that it has shut down these places either run illegally or weren't licensed to sell whiskey due to the high cost and bs of getting a hard liquor license and are only allowed to sell beer and wine coolers and the owner has decided to sell bootleg whiskey to increase profits. As for who or whom might have stole them well Pappy Van Winkle is pretty popular in Norwood so if I were head of this investigation I'd snoop around there for any leads.

You know that many bottles 1 of 2 things, a guard, or a truck driver loaded more than the should have! And when could it have been taken? Could it been gone for years and they just realized it? Or was it recently accounted for then disappear?? Because I called the police 1 time a few yrs back and told them about a shed full and they did nothing at all, because nothing had been reported missing! Could what I saw be the missing liquor?

I have worked there for well over 2 decadse and for the entire time span, there has been an inventory check at the end of every month. There's no possible way the liquor you saw, was the liquor in question. Great observational skills though. NEXT.....

Well I know the person where I saw the alcohol , and he was a guard at that time for buffalo trace it was cases full and it was like 15 yrs ago , so the inventory numbers had to be totally screwed up not to miss what i saw! This is probably why they haven't caught anyone , poor inventory inspections. Just saying!!

Im most positive Jeff Sloan isn't intelligent enough to get away with anything. I have known him a very long time from around Lawrenceburg and he certainly isn't known for his intelligence, so if he is guilty it will come out. I have also heard the name Jeremy something. Hee supposedly works in the distillery and has had access. We will all learn together I suppose..
