After police released the name of the second person arrested in the 2010 murder of a Scott County school bus driver, more details are emerging about the man who was first identified and charged in the case.
Nicholas Willinger is in jail accused of robbing and murdering Sue Jones in 2010. On Friday, LEX 18’s reporter Leigh Searcy spoke with one of his ex-girlfriends who recalls an odd conversation she had with him.
Willinger is the man police say went to the home of Jones to steal from her after allegedly being told she had money. Police say he killed her when he realized she was home.
Ciji Jefferson, a neighbor who grew up just up the road from Jones and rode her school bus, has now been charged in connection with the case, too. She was arrested in late January, but her name was not released until this week.
LEX18 found a photo of the two accused on Facebook, just months after the murder.
Willinger’s ex-girlfriend said she found it was always hard to get Willinger to “open up,” but claims he told her “he had done some really bad things in his life.”
She says that conversation haunted her after his arrest.
On Willinger’s Facebook page, he posted that he attended “Juggalo University of Murder.”
Juggalos are fans of a hip-hop duo called the Insane Clown Posse. In recent years, several crimes like robbery and murder have been attributed to these fans.
