Good afternoon all. Sorry for the late start, but I moved and everything is a mess. Today I will be promoting “Home Town Hero”. This case destroyed families, and nearly closed down a prestigious school for the deaf. So let’s get to it.
Everyone at school missed Jeremy that early morning, just one short month after the start of the semester. Mitch, who had the room two doors down, reported Jeremy missing from math class. He recalled that when leaving his room that morning, he had noticed Jeremy’s door closed. He thought that strange, because Jeremy’s door was always open. “He liked watching people walk down the hall and would wave at all of us,” Mitch said.
When the sixty-two-year-old Dean, Rufus Kilroy, went to Jeremy’s room, he received the shock of his life. Lying face down in a pool of blood was the bludgeoned, stabbed and choked body of Jeremy Short.
Immediately the entire college went on lock down. Staff counselor Serena, a blonde with green eyes, recalled how police swarmed the campus, and yellow crime scene tape surrounded the entire building. Students were instructed to remain in their rooms and all classes were canceled for the rest of the week. “Everyone was terrified,” she said.
For twenty-eight-year-old Detective Luanne Morrison, Jeremy’s murder became her first homicide case. The brunette, with large blue eyes, recalled the sight of the young man’s room, describing it as “only seen in horror films.” Blood was everywhere-on the ceilings, under the bed, in the corners. It was shocking, she said. When she first noticed the metal chair near the body, she thought perhaps Jeremy had tried to commit suicide by hanging himself from his ceiling light.
