Investigation into a murder investigation

      Alton, IL

My 18 year old granddaughter, Ashton, was shot in the back and killed by her ex-boyfriend. The DA made a plea deal with the murderer for 20 yrs. on voluntary manslaughter. Rumors are that the sheriff's deputy in charge was related to the murderer. The DA was not given some of the evidence that was taken. The murderer is a convicted drug dealer, but is also a police informant. There are many, many more discrepancies in this case and our family wants the Ga. State Attorney to look into this. It will not change the outcome of the deal, but maybe we can get a little peace of mind knowing that we did all we could do for Ashton.

      Last night on the Fox/ABC local news in Macon, Ga. was an interview with Ashton's father (my son Jahn) and her maternal grandmother (Beth Bridges). The interview was about getting justice for Ashton and getting people to sign this petition. Take a look at the interview @ wgxa24.com. We've also begun to pick up signatures from all over the U.S. This isn't just for our family; it's for all the people who were wronged by our justice systeml

      Yesterday, I sent out an invitation to my email list. Anyone who received this link, please pass it on to people in your email lists, too. If we get enough signatures we can make the Ga. State's Atty. to check into this matter. We just want to know why there are so many discrepancies in the investigation. Ashton's maternal grandmother has been trying to get Ashton's things back and cannot get them. Why not?!

      This will help people understand that this issue is very important. Not just for our family, but for justice for every underdog.

      We need everyone to sign so we will have a chance to get justice for my beautiful granddaughter!! Ashton had everything to live for and this man took that away from her. She did absolutely nothing to deserve this. She was a wonderful loving and free spirited young woman. She loved life and tried to live it to the fullest and I am so glad she did since her beautiful life was cut so short. Sometimes I wonder if she knew and was trying to taste everything in life as quickly as possible!! She is loved and missed every moment of every day and if you knew her then you know how much she loved life!! I was very blessed to be her nana and I wasn't ready to give her up. I will never understand how someone could take a persons life. I can't wait to see her again!!! I'm sure she will be waiting at heavens gates with her arms wide open to welcome me home!!!

      Seeking true justice for Ashton. I am a little doubtful about the legality of an online petition though.

      Appears the case was seriously mishandled by the Pulaski DA. The death penalty should have been imposed on this case. So it appears justice in Pulaski County has a monetary price, but not for the victim who is SOL. There is no justice in this case.
