In what is probably the biggest miscarriage of justice I’ve ever posted about on this site, Joseph Cyr was convicted in the murder of Jaymie Adams. Since the beginning, I have maintained that Jaymie Adams’ husband, Justin Adams, had more reasons to kill Jaymie than anybody. Even if Joseph Cyr isn’t innocent, there was enough reasonable doubt, in my opinion, that the jury should have come back with a not guilty verdict.
In their closing arguments, Joseph Cyr’s defense stated that not only did Jaymie Adams have no defensive wounds but no blood was ever found on Joseph Cyr’s clothes. Not to mention we should never forget that Justin Adams not only took out an insurance policy on his wife before her murder but he was also having an affair while police were looking for his missing wife. As far as I’m concerned the only thing that the prosecution was able to prove was that Cyr had sex with Jaymie Adams. Considering her husband was turning her out on craigslist as a prostitute this should come as no surprise. This is no knock against Jaymie Adams but what connections does Justin Adams have to not only have gotten parole on manslaughter charges for his wife’s death but to be treated so saintly by the local media?
Until I hear a confession from Cyr himself or hear concrete evidence that proves he killed Jaymie without a shadow of a doubt I will maintain his innocence. I also maintain that the Oklahoma City police have railroaded an innocent man and should be investigated for improprieties involving this investigation.
The jury has recommended a life sentence without parole for Cyr but as of now, this man should not be spending a minute in jail.
