    Somebody (not sure who) has their facts wrong. Seems like this Philly paper is the only one mentioning the Jehovah's Witness church. Others say it was the Pentacostal Church.

    I searched for other stories mentioning JWs, but couldn't find anything else.

    P.S. creating links isn't working on the ipad... sorry

    Thanks, LEAVING QUIETLY for the additional info. I guess it's going to take some time to get this story right. . . and I can relate to your iPad woes - it sure is a pain in the ass to make links clickable.

    This is exactly what I like about this forum, we can collectively gather and share information, and get a least some idea of whats going on out there in the world. . . unlike in the Watchtower Total Information Control Society.

    The more you jump to conclusions without all the facts, the more you look like those "hateful apostates".

    OK - the news this morning did say that the suspect had confessed to not only his relatives, but also to someone "at a religious retreat" that he had "killed a kid in NYC". They did NOT say it was JWs that he confessed to. The word "retreat" itself is non-JW. The media was pretty clear in that the person who tipped off the police was a relative (not religiously related) to the suspect - who was alerted by the FBI search of the basement of that building.

    There are two things in the original post story that made me doubt the suspect was actually a JW -

    First - the Wife and Daughter said they had a restraining order against him. That is not JW behavior against a JW husband.

    Second - the guy was plainly observed to openly smoke cigarettes on his porch by the neighbors - again, not JW behavior.

    What (may I ask) does Rick Fearon have to do (or know about) with this???

    Someone gave the wrong details to the Media. I just do not who spilled the wrong facts to the media. I was thinking maybe Rick Fearon, maybe he has nothing to do with it at all.
