OUTRAGE DEVELOPING OVER AUTHORITIES IGNORING MISSING MAN
UPDATE 3 p.m. 09.27.12
We’ve learned that the Illinois State Police has entered the picture, complete with a search warrant for Hataway’s apartment and a helicopter overhead. We’ll keep you updated. Below is the original post.
RICHLAND CO.—The group established to search for Ed Hataway, missing from his apartment west of Olney since September 16, is quickly gaining momentum…and quickly growing outrage.
Here’s an example of what they’re running into:
There are two things significant about this development Anita is experiencing: the first is that the TV station is going on the word of the “authorities” and letting their non-response dictate whether there’s a story or not (there’s ALWAYS a story if there’s a non-response, but they don’t teach you that in ‘TV journalism’); the second is that the authorities, even after nearly two weeks and many, many worried friends and family expressing concern, refuse to acknowledge that there is something wrong in this scenario.
Hataway was last seen on Sept. 16. His vehicle is parked at his apartment in the DC Sales building west of Olney out on Highway 50. His wallet was in his apartment. His shoes were located outside the door to his apartment. No one has had any communication with him during this entire time. A ground search by horseback, conducted Monday in the woods to the east of his apartment, turned up nothing. Police seem unconcerned, and of course, David Hyde, Richland County’s prosecutor who is SO effective at his job that he charged Texas man Brandon Jenkins with First Degree Murder when it was a clear case of self-defense, has no input whatsoever.
Folks, this is Richland County for you. They go overboard on ridiculous things, and when a man’s life/health/safety could potentially be in jeopardy, they do nothing. We’re disgusted that we are forced to pay taxes there. It was our hope that someone would bother to run against Hyde this year for state’s attorney but no one has. So we must step up and hold our elected officials accountable, not just in this instance, but every day. Do what you can to log it when these people DON’T do their jobs. Then let us know, by either calling our tipline, messaging us at our Facebook page, or emailing us at email@example.com. And get the word out about Hataway…someone, somewhere, has to have seen him.
