UNSOLVED MURDERS, TOM!
* Congratulations to former LNP reporter Tom Knapp (click here for the PennLive story). He also states the following on his non-personal Facebook page:
Tips are welcome! To be clear, I’m not on staff at PennLive but I am writing for them on an as-needed basis, and I have been encouraged to submit story ideas for Harrisburg and surrounding areas. So, yes, send them to me! I’m also writing for LebTown, so any Lebanon County tips are welcome, too!
The unsolved Lancaster County murders, Tom! Especially the murders of Juanita Chevalier and Roxanne Myers which I have given you constant grief over. Can you finally get an answer from the police to see if a DNA test has been done to determine if they have the same killer (click here for “ARE THEY IDIOTS” and here for Knapp’s LNP story, “Unsolved: Police seek justice for 2 women slain in 1990s, hope new technology might generate leads”)?
It would be huge and the families and citizens deserve to know!
CITE THE OWNER!
This was the third time the python had escaped, the neighbor told Rothacker [Jesse Rothacker, founder of the Forgotten Friend Reptile Sanctuary].
From the LNP story, “Residents wrangled 8-foot python into a trash can, rescuing it from the cold in Manheim Township,” (click here).
The owner of this snake should be cited. I’m not one for more laws and endless fines – but you now see it in the police log all the time – dog owners being cited and fined for their dogs running free.
We don’t know if it really was the third time the python “escaped,” but once is enough. This owner should be cited and if he or she released the snake purposely, they should be charged with cruelty as well since the article states the snake could have died from the cold.
The more I think about this the angrier I get. The owner has no right to let an 8-foot python “escape.” If he or she can’t take care of and control the snake they should have turned it over to the reptile sanctuary themselves. Cite the owner.
