This is a petition to request that Sheriff Vernon P. Stanforth  be suspended and investigated for dereliction of duty, improper handling of evidence and failure to follow protocol concerning the investigation of the death of Mackenzie Taylor Branham in 2006. Vernon Stanforths failure to get witness statements, collect DNA evidence, by not following proper arson and homicide procedures, improper handling of  key evidence that has been destroyed or is now missing, along with failing to properly investigate those who were at the home the night of the fatal fire, has severely hindered the investigation and has allowed those responsible for Mackenzies death to avoid prosecution for nearly 12 years. 

This is the list of missing or destroyed evidence .
