Cold Case KSP Hopes New Technology Will Help ID Man

KSP hopes new technology helps to identify a man who was found dead in a Grant County barn more than 25 years ago.

The barn off Highway 22 about seven miles west of Dry Ridge was the scene of a gruesome discovery in April of 1989.

The owner of the property, Henry Curry, says that somebody was placed in the barn after they had been killed or died.

Grant County News reports that KSP used new technology to come up with a sketch of what they believe the 6’5’’ 200 pound man may have looked like.

“He was found in the corner to the right. He was covered up,” said Curry. “The body, as I understood it, was hidden by tobacco sticks.”

Curry bought the property the barn is located on in the early 90s. He says the victim had his fingers removed so investigators would not be able to identify him.

Curry says that back in 1989, the area was very secluded and not many people would know about or drive by the barn.

“I think someone from the area might have known there was a barn here. I would suspect someone from neighboring areas might have been involved,” said Curry.

Curry says he hopes investigators get to the bottom of the case, no matter how long it takes.

“Hopefully, even if it takes another 20 years, they’ll be caught and punished,” said Curry.

Fraud Investigation Civil Judgment Against Medical Device Companies for Grant Fraud

The U.S. District Court has entered a civil judgment of $4,506,267 in favor of the United States and against a Lexington woman, and the medical device companies she owns, holding them liable for making false statements that allowed them to receive millions of dollars in federal grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

This civil judgment, announced today by the U.S. Attorney’s Office, is part of a settlement agreement resolving False Claims Act allegations that Vesta Blue, 70, and her companies, LifeTechniques, Inc. and Care Team Solutions LLC, defrauded NIH of millions of dollars over the course of eight years.

“Ms. Brue defrauded the government in two ways, each of which cost taxpayers,” said United States Attorney Kerry B. Harvey.  “By including false statements in grant applications, her companies received grants to which they were not entitled, thereby depriving qualified small businesses of those funds.  Ms. Brue then diverted the funds – which should have been used to develop new healthcare technologies – to support herself and her businesses.  Her scheme to defraud undermined the integrity of the grant process.  Our office will continue to vigorously pursue fraud against the government, and will work to ensure that companies and their leaders who receive taxpayer dollars are truthful and accurate in their dealings with federal agencies like NIH.”

http://liarcatchers.com/fraud_investigation.html

According to the settlement agreement, NIH awarded Brue and her companies five Small Business Innovation Research grants, worth millions of dollars, to support the development of electronic pillboxes customized for specific patient populations, including HIV and pediatric patients.

In the settlement agreement, Brue and her companies acknowledge that they made false statements on the grant applications about their personnel, facilities, and accounting systems.

Brue and the companies also acknowledge that they falsely stated on grant reports that they had spent the grant funds for purposes of the grants and in compliance with grant regulations.  In fact, Brue spent the grant money on personal expenses, such as plastic surgery, jewelry, home renovations, and massages, among other expenses.  She also used grant money on business expenses not allowed under the grant regulations, such as costs associated with marketing and promoting her businesses.  The false statements made in the grant applications and in the grant reports constitute violations of the False Claims Act.

According to the government’s complaint, Brue also falsified entries in her companies’ accounting ledgers in order to conceal from NIH auditors that the federal funds had been misspent.

Under the terms of the settlement agreement, Brue will have one year to sell her real properties and will pay 80 percent of the net sale proceeds to the government.  For a period of four years, Brue will also pay 70 percent of the net profit of her businesses to the government.  These payments will be applied to satisfy the civil judgment entered by the U.S. District Court.

In a related criminal case, Ms. Brue pleaded guilty to making a false claim to the United States in connection with grants awarded by NIH to her partner’s company, Telehealth Holdings, LLC.  On March 30, 2016, U.S. District Judge Danny C. Reeves sentenced Brue to seven months in prison, and an additional seven months on home detention.  Brue was also ordered to pay $222,037 in restitution to NIH.

“In a prime example of audacious greed, Ms. Brue accepted sizeable federal grants meant to fund the development of medical devices but instead diverted these taxpayer funds to pay for her personal and company expenses,” said Special Agent in Charge Derrick L. Jackson of the U.S. Department of  Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General.  “The sentence and judgment announced today prove that our agency, along with our law enforcement partners, will not tolerate such behavior and will protect the interests of taxpayers and those served by such federal grants.”

The investigation was conducted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Kentucky, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General, and the Internal Revenue Service, Criminal Investigation Division.  Assistant U.S. Attorneys Christine Corndorf and Kate K. Smith represented the United States.

Pedophile Tracking Bowling Green Man Accused of Sexually Assaulting Sleeping Child

An unemployed Franklin man is accused of sexually assaulting a child under 12 years old while the child was asleep.

Shawn M. Stone, 34, 523 Lemon St., was arrested Wednesday morning on two counts of first-degree sodomy (victim under 12 years old) and two counts of first-degree unlawful transaction with a minor (illegal sex act under 16 years old), according to Stone’s arrest citation and a news release from the Franklin Police Department. The citation notes that Stone is not employed.

http://liarcatchers.com/pedophile_tracking.html

Franklin police opened an investigation in mid-June after an adult reported the allegations to social services personnel at the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, FPD Detective Mike Jones said. A cabinet employee relayed the allegations to police.

The charges against Stone involve the same child, Jones said.

Stone is accused of committing sex acts on the child while the child was sleeping until the child awakened and shoved him, according to Stone’s arrest warrant filed in the Simpson Circuit Court Clerk’s Office. Stone told the child not to disclose the allegations and that the incidents were a “bad dream.”

The allegations date from Dec. 25 through Jan. 15, according to Stone’s arrest warrant.

The child told police that Stone had a scar on a portion of his body that is usually covered with clothing. Police confirmed the presence of the scar, according to the warrant.  Stone denied the allegations and attempted to provide police with an alternative explanation for the child’s knowledge of his scar.

Police arrested Stone at his home at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday without incident, Jones said.

Stone is being held in the Simpson County Jail in lieu of a $500,000 cash bond. If he is released on bond, he is not allowed to have contact with any children, the alleged victim or any of the child’s relatives, friends, home or associates, according to the arrest warrant.

He will be arraigned Thursday in Simpson District Court.

Wrongful Death Man Accused of Killing Girlfriend Faces Judge

A man accused of killing his girlfriend in 2014 and then cutting up her body and dumping it in the Kentucky River went before a judge Thursday.

Police say that back in September 2014, Paris Charles killed 50-year-old Goldie Massey.

Investigators say that Massey’s arm was found on the river bank in Henry County and her torso washed up near the river in Jessamine County.

Detectives say that Massey’s DNA was found inside Charles’s home but a cell phone tower picked him up near the Fayette Madison line a few days after her murder. Detectives believe that is where he could have dumped some of the body parts.

http://liarcatchers.com/wrongful_death.html

Charles and his attorney are fighting those claims and the trial is set to go forward.

LEX 18 spoke with Massey’s son when Charles was first arrested. He said, “In my mind, I knew who did it. Paris Charles. Because that’s who she was with and that’s the only person she’d be around that’s capable of doing something that gruesome.”

Charles’s case is expected to last a few weeks.
