Schuyler County Illinois Not knowing how the internet works, a Central Illinois sheriff decided the best way to learn was to just jump in head first. He would have chosen feet first but he’d not seen them in years. That’s really not important, the fact he was courageous enough is all that matters. We like that character attribute in those who’re sworn to protect and serve. But a funny thing happened on the way home to plow those fields in farmville after a long night of hunting the [ever so elusive] anhydrous thieves; thoughts of gay-Jewish guys flittered into his brain. And he couldn’t wait to sign onto his computer to opine. Or something like that. (more…)

Rushville, Illinois If there is such a thing as justice after 17 years, it was served yesterday for the family of Susan Bonser. There was a “stay” on information being confirmed for 24 hours due to the children of the confessed killer being notified. Jeff Kennedy testified in front of the Grand Jury yesterday morning…as far as I’m concerned, it’s now been 24 hours.

I understand needing to speak to the growing list of Jeff’s victims but Susan’s family, they’ve waited long enough.

The official press release will be available today and when it becomes available, it will be posted on this site. Until then, Jeff Kennedy confirmed what a selfish prick he was yesterday as he took a plea deal and confessed to murdering Susan Bonser October 16, 1993. During the time Susan’s family wondered if the murderer would be caught, worried they’d never know the real date she died, worried that everyone had put her murder on the back burner, Jeff was able to raise a family and, until recently, was gainfully employed.

While we’re extremely pleased Susan’s family has obtained a portion of the answers they’ve needed, we also want to extend a heart-felt message of condolence. I can only imagine the emotions yesterday’s news brought to the surface.

16-Yr-Victim. Thank you for sharing Susan’s story with us. And a personal thank you for the endless conversations we’ve had over the past several months. You’ve shown a sister’s love can overcome obstacles.

Please feel free to comment on the resolution of this 17-year-old murder.

Rushville, Illinois Sixteen years ago 34-year-old Susan Bonser was celebrating a new chapter in her life starting with an anticipated move into a new apartment in Rushville, Illinois. Little did she realize, a cold-blooded killer would postpone those plans forever.

October 16, 1993, Susan Bonser finished working 2nd shift in Beardstown, Illinois, met some friends at a local bar and then moved the party to her apartment in Rushville, some 15 miles away. Around 3am, all but one male friend left the home and he was the last to see Susan alive. (more…)

Rushville, Illinois Shhhh. I want everyone to be real quiet for just a moment………do you hear it? It might be a little difficult at first but if you listen closely you can hear it building steam. It’s called karma and it’s got its aim right up Ryan Boyd’s ass. And since Boyd claims he’s a “redneck” per his myspace page, it’s only appropriate that I include the only country song lyrics I’m familiar with:  “I hear the train a comin’.   It’s rollin’ ’round the bend. I’m tired of leaning over while Bubba puts it in.” I know, I suck at remembering the exact words. (more…)

Ryan Jones

Rushville, Illinois By the look of things, the Rushville Police Department is wanting to give the Ashland Police Department a run for their money. Now before you start imagining these cops in cute little outfits challenging each other to a charity basketball playoff let me derail that. The competition is a little more grave – both figuratively and literally. Ashland and Rushville have entered into the abysmal challenge of making Central Illinois choose which is more fucked up in handling the deaths of young men. Ashland had an early start with the murder of Steven Watkins, shot in the back of the head while he went to pick up his daughter a year ago. The dead body wasn’t reported by the Chief of Police and the crime scene was contaminated by allowing people in and out of the house. Rushville’s Ryan Jones was reportedly killed as he drove home alone and the truck he was in left the roadway. But due to the wonderful world of modern communications and the inability to think their way out of a paper bag, the Rushville and Schuyler County Police Departments were unable to keep their lies from surfacing.
