OK, let’s get going. After spending two whole days in court, I feel like I have passed the bar exam and am at least qualified to present an opening statement on what will become a multiple entry blog on the life and death of Nikki LaDue January.
What you will hear includes Nikki’s fear of guns and her odd request to her husband to leave her his pistol when he went on a trip.
The Chief Investigator himself saying, “the location of the weapon under her leg is a little odd.”
That same investigator closing this case without looking at all the facts.
A first responder who said, “the investigator that worked it (the case) was no spring chicken, and didn’t like to work.”
You will hear about a letter left on Nikki’s computer that may or may not have been written by her. By all accounts it seems to be a cry for forgiveness and a plea to regain Phil January’s trust in her. That would be a plea for the future. Yet the Chief Investigator says the note is a suicide note because, “the letter does not say she is going to commit suicide, but read in its entirety that is where it is leading.” I read the entire letter. It’s long and even trying to read between the lines I do not believe this was a suicide note. I’m not even convinced it was written by her.
You will hear about Phil January’s encounter with coroner Gary Hargrove who told him when asked for more information about Nikki’s death, “I did my fucking job. I answered your fucking questions. Now what more do you want?”
You will hear of unprofessionalism by all the so-called investigators in this case and you will see why Nikki LaDue January did not kill herself. There is a murderer on the loose and by now it may be too late to bring him to justice. Or is it?
Much more to come.
