    Wait, you mean to tell me all those ” anti semitic ” attacks in New York where committed by blacks!?”

    Solve his murder?how about convicting him? I’d excuse him from killing his wife if she was a modern feminist lib lawyer… Other than that, don’t waste our money on this

    – it’s only going to be a bunch of lawyers and judges getting off together cashing in.

    Justice is already sold in this country, by liberals. No more handing our tax $ to these con artists… stop wasting their profits.

    They need that blood money for their microbrews, pills and airfare to Epsteins Island

    He’s already dead and was a murderer. Close that and work on something worth while that’s actually affecting people now. How can you say you won’t stop until the case is solved and in the SAME breath say it’ll never be solved because it’s so old 🙄. Fire this dude.

    They once found a torso inside of a cave. It belonged to the head of a ‘Loveless Joe’, he had no grave. Henry ‘old Joe’ murdered his wife with an axe, and was shortly dispatched by a man with no name. All that was found was down in the hole, wrapped all up in burlap, there was ‘old Joe’. The remains have been recovered, Joe’s head hid by his foe. The murderer unlikely to be discovered, because it was so long ago.

    0:51 Go read the wanted poster. If Agnes was his wife, then why does the person in the wanted poster have a completely different first and last name than who they say this person was in the cave? Also, if they were married, then the person in the wanted poster would have the same last name as Agnes Lovelace. Yet they don’t.

  95. calee4nyaboy Reply

    I wonder what Agnes did to get murdered? Sleeping around maybe?
