Is there a "new" witness in the Tara Grinstead Case?

New witness reported in Grinstead disappearance

According to Maurice Godwin, who, according to his Web site, holds a doctorate in investigative psychology from the University of Liverpool, said he learned of the existence of a witness during a recent trip to Ocilla.

Godwin said the witness saw a man near a black Chevrolet pickup truck parked on the grass at Grinstead's house the night she was last seen, Oct. 22.

"The person standing by the truck said something very rude to the witness," Godwin said Wednesday. The man threatened the witness, Godwin said, which might be the reason that person hasn't come forward.

Godwin said he has talked to the best friend of the witness and plans to contact the witness today. "This person is legitimate. I can tell you that," Godwin said.

Godwin said he was triple-checking his information before turning over the witness's name to investigators, he said. He expects to notify GBI Special Agent Gary Rothwell before the week is out, he said.

"When I get my ducks in a row ... I'm going to shoot them some information," Godwin said. (Full Story)

MY Opinion: I think this "Investigator" is quacked. This sounds more like a ploy to bring a witness to the forefront. Remember this is the same guy who didn't use *69 when he received a death threat over the phone,and didn't report it til Monday when it happened Sunday. If there really is a witness and the best friend told I would be more worried about protecting both of them and not my ducks.

My Partner on From Whispers to Roars Main Forum thinks I'm spending too much time there so guess what, your stuck with me and my rants LOL.

Here are a few News Items I found Interesting and wanted to share.

41 Felons Freed Early, Including Accused Triple Murderer.

Where else but Michigan. Yes they "accidentally" let 41 felons loose on unsuspecting citizens.

One of those released was Patrick Alan Selepak, who is now charged with killing three people after he was wrongly freed.

Corrections Department Director Patricia Caruso told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday that systemic and individual errors led to the releases.

The Full Story is Available at the Highlighted Title.

Man Sentenced In Child Porn Bust

What really makes this one interesting is the fact it was one of the LARGEST porn busts in Virginia History. And he got 1 year. Yes you read it right 1 year.

"A man involved in what state officials believe to be the biggest child pornography bust in Virginia history is sentenced to only a year in prison.

Rodney Cheely was arrested in 2005 on 25 child pornography charges. He plead guilty back in February.

The maximum possible sentence was 175 years in prison, but Cheely will serve one year. He will need to register as a sex offender once he is released. "

Well they do say Virginia is for Lovers,they should add Commit a Crime get a slap on the wrist.

And now for the pity party awards:

Paroled Sex Offender Faces Rough Homecoming

After nearly 20 years in prison, 44-year-old Jeffrey Baker has returned to his mother's home in Livingston County. Baker admitted to raping eight women in Monroe County in the 1980's. As a level three sex offender, he faces very strict rules for his parole which began Wednesday.

No one in this quiet lakeside town is welcoming him. The view from McMillan Lane in Conesus may be inviting, but for its newest neighbor -- the reception was ice cold.

“He's well aware of the fact that he's not wanted here,” said Dawn Jostiak who lives on McMillan Lane. Baker arrived around 4:00 p.m, and neighbors made sure he knew he was not welcome. Carol Wilson says seeing Baker arrive put some fears to rest. "

What was he expecting a party,neighbors bringing food and cake. Waaaaa my heart bleeds for him... NOT!

Welcome To The Idiot Files Part 2

Gaia has dished up two more weiners (yes i meant to spell it like that) for you. And now good old Numbers 8 & 7 on the countdown.

Idiot # 8......The ACLU ....The President of the Florida Chapter believes that anyone trying to pass laws against sex offenders is simply out to get votes.

Crossley told WND he’s concerned about the 170,000 family members of sex offenders across the state being adversely affected by what he views as a building hysteria and that only 3% are at risk to reoffend.

Thats 3% TOO MUCH in my book. This is from the people who defend NAMBLA! And he blamed the kidnapping, rape & murder of Jessie Lunsford on Law Enforcement. Dont EVEN get me started on that asinine comment!!

Idiot # 7 ...... New Jersey Superior Court Judge Bruce A. Gaeta .....

When 43-year-old teacher Pamela Diehl-Moore tearfully pleaded guilty to having sex with a 13-year-old male student, New Jersey Superior Court Judge Bruce A. Gaeta sentenced her to probation, saying:

"I really don't see the harm that was done here and certainly society doesn't need to be worried. I do not believe she is a sexual predator. It's just something between two people that clicked beyond the teacher-student relationship. … And don't forget, this was mutual consent "

More to come.........Whats YOUR opinion???
