Cold Case 96 Years Later “Some Mother’s Boy” May Be ID’d

96 years. It’s how long “Some Mother’s Boy,” the only name he was known by in Scott County, waited to be identified.

Those words were written on the tombstone of a teen boy who was struck by a train on April 1, 1921. He rested there until NAMUS, the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System, decided to exhume the remains and solve one of Georgetown’s biggest mysteries. Progress has been made in the case and NAMUS believes that their John Doe is a young man missing from Pulaski County.

The FBI has recently started processing cases like these for free when it used to cost up to $7,000.

They are now ready to confirm his identity. The official announcement will come Thursday at his gravesite.

“Some Mother’s Boy” is expected to be identified as Frank A. Haynes, 17, of Bronston, Kentucky. According to officials with NAMUS, Haynes’ father had seen photos of the dead boy and attempted to identify him, but they had insufficient evidence to prove that the young man was his son.

Blood collected from Frank Haynes’ niece confirmed the family connection.

Wrongful Death Accused Murderer Claims Self Defense

A man accused of gunning down two men in Whitley County spoke to LEX 18 from behind bars.

Paul Parsons said the situation is not what it seems and that he was actually acting in self-defense.

He told LEX 18 that it started just before 3:00 a.m. last Wednesday.

“We were struggling over the rifle and it went off a couple of times,” said Parsons.

Police were called to the home just outside of Corbin City limits after they say that Paul Parsons shot and killed Denver Nicely and Joshua Wernicke.

Parsons said he did not call police because he was freaking out. He say he took the loaded AR 15 to the house to sell to Nicely. He said that once Nicely had the rifle, he shot Wernicke.

“He was crazy, high on something. I couldn’t let him shoot me,” he said.

Parsons claims that he and Nicely were struggling for the gun when it went off.

In court on Tuesday, a state police detective testified that investigators found a tactical vest and four AR15 magazines in Parsons’ vehicle. A witness claims that days earlier, Parsons threatened to kill Denver Nicely, who Parsons said he had known for 15 years and was his best friend.

“I’m sorry this happened. I love them like my own kids and they know it,” was Parsons’ message to Nicely’s family.

Missing Person Pierre Fuqua of Joliet, IL

A Joliet resident went missing in Morris after attending a friend’s birthday party.

Thirty-year-old Pierre Fuqua was last seen leaving the household where the party took  place around 1 p.m. on June 4.

His mother, Deborah Carver, said Fuqua’s phone is dead and he has not contacted anyone or showed up to work.

“He is a father of two with a quiet side, but he always went to work faithfully,” Carver  said.

The last time Carver spoke with her son was Memorial Day weekend.

“He was supposed to come over that next Saturday and he never showed up,” Carver said.

Fuqua has a beard and tattoos on his right arm and near his thumb. He was wearing a gray-and-red T-shirt that said ‘last king’ and jeans, and was driving a black, beat-up Saturn, his mother said.

A missing person case was filed with the Joliet Police Department, Carver said, and the police currently are investigating.

The Joliet police did not respond to a call for comment Monday.

Carver made a public plea for information on her son’s whereabouts.

“I just want him home,” Carver said. “If anyone has seen him, call the police.”

Fraud Investigation Three Convicted on Conspiracy and Fraud Charges

A federal jury in Lexington has convicted three people from Nicholasville on numerous counts of conspiracy, mail fraud, bank fraud, and money laundering.

The Department of Justice said that the evidence presented shows 70-year-old James Minton, 65-year-old Joyce Minton, and 43-year-old Aaron Brooke Warren conspired to defraud their employer, Clark Machine Tool and Die of Nicholasville.

A press release from the Department of Justice said that the criminal conspiracy took place from February 2000 through May 2016 and that it resulted in a loss in excess of $1,500,000.

http://liarcatchers.com/fraud_investigation.html

The business was defrauded by using company checks and credit cards to purchase personal items, by cashing and keeping company petty cash checks, by issuing themselves extra paychecks, and by inflating their paychecks. The press release stated that they also kept money that customers had paid the company for work, converting those funds to their personal use.

Joyce Minton was the officer manager and bookkeeper for the company, her son Aaron Warren was the company’s shop supervisor, and her husband James Minton was a contractor.

Joyce Minton was convicted of 46 counts of conspiracy, mail fraud, bank fraud, and money laundering on Monday.

Warren was convicted of 34 counts of conspiracy, mail fraud, and money laundering; and James Minton was convicted of 7 counts of conspiracy and mail fraud.

They are scheduled to be sentenced on September 25.

Fraud Investigation Doctor in Connection to Eric Conn Fraud Case Found Guilty

As the FBI searches for his co-conspirator on the run, the trial of Dr. Bradley Adkins has ended with a guilty conviction in a Lexington federal court.

Adkins was convicted of rubber stamping mental evaluations for ex-lawyer Eric C. Conn’s clients in a scheme that defrauded the government out of millions. The investigation alleged that Conn wrote medical reports and paid Adkins to approve them without conducting a physical exam of the patients. Judge David B. Daugherty was also accused of approving Conn’s cases for Social Security disability payouts without scrutiny.

http://liarcatchers.com/fraud_investigation.html

The disability benefits of over 900 eastern Kentucky residents represented by Conn were frozen pending a review by the Social Security Administration.

EKB reports that Conn and Daugherty each reached deals with the government to plead guilty to other charges, leaving Adkins as the last remaining defendant.

Last week, the FBI confirmed that Conn had fled.

Two people whose social security benefits were cut off committed suicide.

Adkins was ordered to be held in jail following the decision. He will be formally sentenced in September.

Wrongful Death Mother and Child Found Dead

The family of a woman and her son are devastated after the two were found unresponsive in the bathroom of a Frankfort apartment.

The investigation began around 8 p.m. Sunday and continued into Monday morning. The scene is located on Dogwood Lane near Woodland Avenue, not far from the state capitol building.

The mother and son found dead have been identified as Kirsten Dean, 26, of Richmond, and Jaxton Dean, 2.

The mother was found in the tub with self-inflicted wounds. The child drowned in the tub despite efforts made to revive him.

http://liarcatchers.com/wrongful_death.html

Dean’s sister tells LEX 18 that Kirsten Dean loved her son Jaxton more than anything. She says that her family is in shock.

Police are telling LEX 18 that this is not being called a murder-suicide. They say that Kirsten may have found her son unresponsive in the tub and out of grief took her own life.

Neighbors are shaken up and sad for the family.

“I just don’t think you think at that time. It’s just so horrible. It’s the worst thing of ever seen in my life; seeing that little boy laying there not breathing,” said Maggie McKnight, who witnessed the scene.

The neighbors say that the woman who lives in the apartment took Kirsten and Jaxton in just a short time ago.

Relatives of Kirsten and Jaxton said that their family was already going through a lot. Kirsten’s sister tells LEX 18 that they had recently lost another sibling.
