    Is there a Crime Stoppers number too? Why all press releases that come out it lists Ponces name? It used to have the Lead Detective as the contact person…looks like someone wants face time..

    Kpd the uneducated/undereducated overpaid flashlights will cover this up.

    Feds needs to be all over this. Remember the female in pigs that was dropped off beaten beyond recognition?

    Kpd public announcement was an unattended death due to overdose. She was scheduled for a TRO court hearing in a week. The subject was a former kpd Officer/convicted rapist.

    This is bad news and kpd will cover it up like the 20 unsolved murders.

    County officials who care should request federal assistance evasive an inept police Dept is not going to help.

    Oh No! Feds Help Please.

    agreed…the KPD have thugs in their employ that need to be brought to the light of day. Harassing old haoles for starters.
