The PTO Speakers Series will be hosting a talk on “Crime in Our Community: What you Need to Know and How You Can Help”, presented by Sgt. Leslie Jackson of the GHPD. The talk will be on Monday, September 22, from 7:00-7:30pm in the Media Center at the High School.
The announcement of this presentation said there will be a Q and A session afterwards. I would be interested in hearing the answer to the question “Why has the police department failed to find the Grandview Flasher”, after more than a year and over 15 incidents of exposing himself. There is a facebook group for the Grandview Flasher that has over 170 members, so I think there is some interest in the community for some updates on that hunt.
Jennifer Cook’s murder has also gone unsolved. I’m guessing that the same “investigation is in progress” line will be used. At this point, the case is so cold that the police might want to try something new – release some of the information that they were holding back maybe? I get that they don’t want to release much for fear of compromising the prosecution of the case, but if they never find the killer, there will never be a case that goes before a jury.
