*** BREAKING NEWS ***
The Lancaster City Police Department have primary jurisdiction over this case. County detectives can assist and/or assume jurisdiction over homicide cases only when requested by the department.
We provide assistance whenever requested. Prosecutors have consulted with the city on this case but the county detectives have not been asked to assist.
Craig W. Stedman
District Attorney of Lancaster County
The above email in today from DA Craig Stedman in response to my email of this morning [Michael Landis is the Chief of the Lancaster County Detectives]:
Subject: The May 16th Murder of Erma Kaylor and the Lancaster County Detectives
Michael Landis told me over the phone several weeks ago that the Lancaster County Detectives are not involved in the murder investigation of Erma Kaylor, who was killed in her home at 235 W. Vine Street on May 16th. Why not? I thought that was one of the main purpose of your detectives – to assist with unsolved murders in the county.
As the chief law enforcement officer for the county, please explain why your detectives are not being utilized to assist in getting this killer of an 83-year-old woman off the street.
Why hasn’t Police Chief Sadler requested the help of the Lancaster County Detectives? A killer he described as “evil” has been loose on the streets since May 16th! Not to mention the Lancaster Police have multiple stabbings, shootings and an arson to solve all occurring within the last two months!
Why haven’t they asked for help, Mayor Gray? You have repeatedly expressed your concerns regarding public safety and the quality of life in Lancaster. You have made them top priorities. Why haven’t you asked for help?

Bummer … excused from jury duty because everyone with a number 272 and higher is not needed. I had a notebook and pen packed, ready to write down all the side conversations in the hallway and take notes on the fine Italian marble bathroom. Plus I was looking forward to meeting one (or maybe both) of the jury commissioners who have nothing to do and refuse to resign.
Oh, no! Could you call a judge and beg? You didn’t meet either of the jury commissioners who have nothing to do and refuse to resign? Where are they? Thanks for the report!
