Major break in Janie Ward murder
As you might expect, the news is not altogether good.
The 47-year-old witness was sought out in early October by Teri Whitcraft, a producer for the ABC News Justice Unit, which is preparing a documentary on the case to be aired in the spring. In turn, Whitcraft said that she promptly contacted Williamson, who then drove to Harrison, where the witness gave him an interview on camera. Afterward, I'm told, Williamson told the witness that he wanted to take her statement under oath within a matter of days. Yet to my knowledge, as of last week, more than two months afterward, that had not occurred. It's unclear why Williamson did not place the witness under oath at the time of that interview. Time may well be a factor. Since providing her statement to Williamson, she has told me that sheÂs twice been threatened in the presence of a witness by a woman in a green car and has been followed by a man who told her that he was a private detective.
The Ward family has never given up and Mike Masterson has been relentless. Where are our public officials? In Arkansas, we expect to be lied to and robbed by elected officials and their flunkies. Is murder also now acceptable?
The old judge is a criminal after the form of "Boss Hog". It is hard to blame the people of Arkansas as they are really good folks. The problem is wth the crooks that are continually elected on promises to "make things better" As far as lumping Ark. and La. in the group, don't forget Mississippi and Texas.
Also Oklahoma can throw a few people in the mix. How about Gene stipe of S.E. Okla. A crook after the heart of Huey Long. He is about to beat a rap even with the Feds. involved. Ever heard of Lyndon johnson? He had a court house burned down in West Texas to cover up some of his mis-doings, and that was in the 40's I believe.
Yes the "good ole boys" are still around and will be for awhile. Get cross ways with them, and you won't be around long. I hope justice will someday be served for Janie Ward.
I have a good friend who was at that party when that accident happened...do you truly think that all the statements that were made to the police varied ,or that they all got together to get their story straight....please it was an accident mixed with stupid decisions afterwards that's all.
.they had bin drinking they rob him,beat him with a tire iron,and raped him.he lived like a baby for a year or so.the police said if he died due to that the would charge them with murder,they know who it was.but to this day they all live happy.so i beleive everything was covered up.and i wont hide my name.patty lemon,and i know a few who was at that party.someone needs to gets a few balls about them and come forward.thats what gives creeps there couage.
