No more Mr. Nice Guy

For the life of me, I cannot figure out why the media isn’t all over the Vincent Brothers murder case. For those of you who are unfamiliar, five family members where found dead in their home on July 8, 2003. The bodies were of Joanie Harper 39, her three kids ages 4, 2 and 6 weeks and her mother Earnestine Harper 70. Suspicion immediately turned to Joanie’s ex-husband and the father of the three children. Uh – yeah! Hello! Take a look at the crime – it doesn’t take a genius to figure out somebody related to these people killed them. The Manson family is long gone.

Anyway, at first there was all kinds of big media coverage, but once Vincent Brothers (an elementary school Vice-Principal) turned himself in and later released, attention faded. After about a year of paid vacation he was arrested and charged with the murders, but by then we were all caught up with the whole Laci Peterson thing so no one seems to care much about Brothers now. That’s crazy! We’re talking about an entire family shot to death!!

Now his lawyer is trying all sorts of tricks to get him off including stalling and claims of prosecutorial misconduct. Please. The dude is unaccounted for from July 2 to July 8 and he rented a car in Ohio and put a jillion miles on it.

Hmmmm… I wonder why.
