I’ll post more details as they become available however I hope I can delete this post after he’s found safe.

Remains of Amy Ahonen found

Remains of Amy Ahonen, missing since 2011, located, family confirms:

Amy Ahonen

The family of Amy Ahonen has said that Amy’s remains have been found in two separate parts of the Denver area. She went missing back in 2011 under mysterious circumstances.

At the time of her disappearance Amy’s sister said that Amy placed an ad for a roommate on craigslist and that a guy who responded to the ad made her fear for her safety. Since that time I have not heard whether or not police have investigated that avenue. So far no arrests have been made in Amy’s disappearance.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Amy’s family and friends.

Is Justin Adams’ attorney trying to frame an innocent man?

Charges against Blanchard man accused in wife’s death to be amended:

Amended charges expected in death of Jaymie Adams:

I actually got wind of this story a few weeks ago. I basically thought nothing of it because I figured I’ll post about once the charges have been amended. Then a couple of weeks went by and the charges still hadn’t been amended so I decided to go back and take another look at it and I’m glad I did.

For those of you who don’t know Justin Adams has been charged with the brutal stabbing and blunt force trauma killing of his pregnant wife Jaymie. In my opinion police have the right man due to the alleged motives of a life insurance policy that was taken out on Jaymie and that Adams was allegedly having an affair as well. I won’t even get into the craziness that is Adams’ mother Tina Clarke.

There has been something that I have been leaving out of my posts on Jaymie Adams murder. There is another man who has been mentioned in this case but I’ve intentionally left his name out since he has not been charged with any crime. His name is Joseph Cyr and he may have been the last person that saw Jaymie Adams alive. Mr. Cyr has been very cooperative with police by all accounts. Thanks to Justin Adams attorney, Irven Box, neither I nor Mr. Cyr have that luxury.

You see it seems that not only the report of Adams charges being amended was leaked to the press but so was an accusation that Mr. Cyr’s DNA was found on Jaymie Adams. Specifically it’s being said that Mr. Cyr’s sperm was found on Jaymie Adams. More on that in a little bit. That’s important because Justin Adams claims that his wife was a prostitute on craigslist and has admitted that they both allegedly engaged in a swinger lifestyle.

While the charges are most likely going to be amended sometime soon the Oklahoma City police still contend that Adams is their only suspect…

“The investigation of the death of Jaymie Adams is continuing. At our request, the Oklahoma City Police Department has pursued additional evidence. We continue to allege that Justin Adams has culpability in the death of his wife. Charges will be amended to reflect the level of his suspected culpability,”

This statement was issued after the leak and while it didn’t come from Box directly he hasn’t been exactly shy on commenting about it once it was leaked to the press. Who does he think leaked it? Why Justin Adams’ big mouth mommy Tina Clarke of course…

Box said he gave a copy of the confidential report to his client, who in turn may have given it to his mother. The report later was leaked to the public.

“Evidently, he gave it to her,” Box said. “It couldn’t have come from anyone else.”

Even if Box didn’t specifically instruct his client to have this information leaked I’m sure he was well aware that it would be leaked by the woman who couldn’t keep her mouth shut if she was covered in bees.

Now as far as Joseph Cyr’s DNA being found on Jaymie I have to ask why was that not in the original autopsy report which can be found here. (PDF File) I encourage you to read the entire report but what sticks out is the last sentence on the report.

Acute inflammation and some red blood cells are noted in the vaginal swab. No definite sperm is seen in the oral, vaginal or rectal swabs.

So where was this new magic DNA collected from and why wasn’t it collected before. Is it a definite match or a possible match meaning it could match several hundred thousand or million other men? Not only that but what would Mr. Cyr’s motive be? For the sake of argument let’s say that Jaymie Adams was a prostitute and Mr. Cyr was a client of hers. What could possibly be his motive for stabbing her 21 times and bashing her head in? This sounds way to personal for Jaymie Adams’ murder to have been committed by anybody but Justin Adams. He had the most to gain from Jaymie’s death but Adams’ attorney is now allegedly using the court of the press to try to sway opinion away from his client. Common sense and logic dictates that Justin Adams is more than likely guilty. Hopefully the people of Oklahoma City have not fallen for Box’s legal sleights of hand.

Judge orders ankle monitor removed from Justin Adams

Oklahoma judge agrees to remove ankle monitor of man charged in pregnant wife’s death:

This comes straight from the ‘You’ve Got to Be Kidding Me’ department. It’s not bad enough that Justin Adams has been released on bail but this past week a judge in Oklahoma has ordered that his ankle monitor be removed.

If you’re wondering why I think that’s a big deal it’s because Adams is accused in the brutal stabbing and blunt force trauma murder of his wife, Jaymie Adams. There’s more to the story than just that though.

Justin Adams and his crazy mom, Tina Clarke, claim that Jaymie Adams worked on craigslist as a prostitute and was killed by a john in Oklahoma City. However a cubic ass-ton of strange behavior on Justin Adams’ part lead me to believe that he’s the killer. Like that he allegedly took out a life insurance policy on his wife shortly before her murder or that he supposedly started having an affair with another woman prior to his wife’s disappearance. And let’s not forget the accusations of possible witness tampering by Justin Adams’ mom. Not to mention that cell phone records possibly place Adams’ near the scene of the crime. That’s why it’s a big deal to me.

Adams’ attorney says it’s because the murder was committed by someone else. That would be awfully convenient for his client.

Zinah Jennings convicted

Zinah Jennings, South Carolina mother, found guilty of unlawful conduct in missing toddler case:

23-year-old Zinah Jennings was found guilty of unlawful conduct in the disappearance of her son Amir Jennings. Amir has been missing since November of last year and Zinah Jennings has not divulged where he is.

“Prove to me your child is alive,” police Sgt. Arthur Thomas says.

“I can’t,” Jennings replied.

Jennings was sentenced to the maximum of 10 years.

Jennings gave birth to a daughter during her trial.

She’s received 9 months time served.

So far the only sign of Amir that has been found was some bloodstains on his blanket that was found in Jennings’ car.

Zinah Jennings gives birth during trial

Trial delayed after Jennings gives birth:

Last week the trial of Zinah Jennings started in South Carolina. The 23-year-old Jennings is on trial for charges of unlawful conduct toward a child. Her son, Amir Jennings has been missing since Thanksgiving of 2011 and has yet to be found. Jennings herself has given conflicting stories on what she did with her son although Amir’s blood has been identified in Jennings car.

Just as the prosecution was set to deliver its closing argument last week Jennings went into labor with her second child delaying the trial until at least tomorrow. Jennings’ lawyer, the ever hilariously named Hemphill Pride II, says that he will argue for a mistrial because of the birth. Whatever.

No word yet on the condition of the newborn or who will take custody of the child. Jennings’ mother says that she is willing to care for the child while other reports states the child may become a ward of the state.

Jennings is only looking at 10 years in prison.

We can only hope and pray that Amir is found safely but unfortunately I don’t think that will happen. I can imagine a scenario where Jennings is convicted and then confesses to where he is in order to try to get a reduced sentence.

Blood on blankets belonged to Amir Jennings

Blood on blanket matched missing child’s, police say:

The disappearance of Amir Jennings is just one of the stories I follow that resemble a certain story out of Florida about the one who shall not be named, and no it’s not Voldemort.

Unlike the story we dare not speak the disappearance of Amir Jennings really hasn’t broken through the national media in my opinion because Amir is black. He’s been missing since he was 18-months-old when his mother, Zinah Jennings, was picked up in Columbia South Carolina after crashing her car late last year. She has been less than cooperative with police in divulging the whereabouts of her son.

Back in January of this year I posted about how bloody clothes and blankets were found by police in Zinah Jennings’ car. This past Monday in court police said that the blood matched that of Amir Jennings.

Of course her defense attorney is trying to get that evidence suppressed as being prejudicial but come on. If it turns out that she did kill Amir or at least had a hand in it that would be crucial evidence as it places her somewhere near the crime scene.

More importantly this doesn’t look like we’re going to have a happy ending in this story. Ever since Elizabeth Smart was miraculously found alive I never say never in missing child cases but realistically this doesn’t look good that Amir may be alive. I’ll be hoping against hope that he is but I won’t be surprised if he isn’t.

And if you want to get your mad on let’s not forget that this (insert your favorite insult here) is pregnant with another child and set to deliver in September. Hopefully she’ll still be in jail then so they can take the child away from her and give it a fighting chance.

Justin Adams released on bail, Mommy’s PI says she has proof of his innocence

Blanchard man accused of killing his wife is released from the Oklahoma County jail:

Private Investigator Claims Discovery Proves Justin Adams Innocent:

This past Wednesday 25-year-old Justin Adams of Blanchard, Oklahoma was released from jail after his bond was set at $100K. Adams is accused in the December, 2011 stabbing and beating death of his wife Jaymie Adams and their unborn child. I wonder if his mommy put up the bond money since she’s been so supportive of her son in the past including allegedly trying to pay off witnesses.

On top of that news now the PI that mommy hired, who is now magically working for the defense, says that she has proof of Justin Adams’ innocence…

“Justin and Jaymie had an alternative lifestyle that obviously they were trying to cover up when he was arrested, because he lied to law enforcement. That’s the bottom line. He lied and it ultimately got him in trouble,” said private investigator Dana Reyna.

She says many people thought this would be an open-and-shut case, but her investigation proved that would not be so. Instead, she said there were several other theories about who may have killed Jaymie based on the lifestyle she and Justin had.

What she’s referring to is that Jaymie and Justin Adams were said to be swingers who looked for other couples on craigslist. Normally I would say that could mean that there are other suspects but let’s not forget that not only did Adams take out a life insurance policy on his wife but he was also having an affair. It’s hard to ignore that kind of math.

I guess now we should be taking bets to see if he cuts off his ankle monitor or not. I say he’s a runner.

Zinah Jennings may walk out of jail tomorrow

Missing SC Boy’s Mom Wants Case Nixed:

In my last post about Zinah Jennings I mentioned how she might just out-crazy Casey Anthony. Now she may outdo her entirely as she may spend even less time than Casey Anthony in jail.

First a little background information if you’re new.

22-year-old Zinah Jennings and her 18-month-old son Amir went missing around Thanksgiving of 2011. Amir’s grandmother filed a missing persons report in early December. Zina Jennings has turned up but there is no sign of her son and she’s not talking.

In her hometown of Columbia, South Carolina Jennings was involved in a one person car crash on Christmas Eve. Amir was not with her. When questioned by police Jennings allegedly gave them several false stories about Amir being anywhere from Raleigh to Atlanta and just about everywhere in between. All leads that she has given them have not turned up anything.

After nothing turned up Jennings was arrested on December 29th and charged with unlawful conduct toward a child and held on $150K bond.

Now Jennings’ lawyer, Hemphill Pride, is trying to get his client released from jail and a judge may be granting that request tomorrow. Mr. Pride alleges that the prosecution does not have enough evidence to charge her with unlawful conduct toward a child and a judge gave prosecutors until tomorrow to make their case or see her go free for now.
