...And we'll be discussing the exact meaning of the "that" in just a bit, but first, we've got a relatively nice day on our hands (as winter days go) with temps reaching ABOVE freezing (37 degrees) with some sun breaking through at some point today.
*** First out of the stall this morning...an UPDATE to yesterday's FOURTH HOMICIDE in Ft. Wayne.
(I'm getting good at predicting this)
Here's the lowdown:
Nathaniel Jishaun Rainer is the latest member of the city's 2013 Dead Pool.
He was found dead from multiple gunshot wounds in a lot near Smith and Emily Sts, north of Pontiac on the city's...(...all together, gang...)...SOUTHEAST SIDE.
What was not initially disclosed by WANE yesterday, was the fact that there was a neighbor who DID hear between 4-6 gunshots just prior to Rainer's body being found.
An officer was dispatched to the location and was flagged down by a man who found Rainer's body.
Another report to police noted that a car left the scene with it's headlights off "slowly driving through the neighborhood".
Now, before we start with the whole "he was a good boy, the life of parties...." and so on, at the time of his death, Rainer was facing charges for felony break-in and resisting police.
So much for that "good boy" persona, hmm?
Back in July 2012, Rainer was spotted leaving a house after an officer was dispatched to a scene where a home burglary had been reported.
Rainer ignored orders to stop and was later found in the bed of a parked pickup truck.
The side door to the house that Rainer left had been kicked in, and Rainer told police he was trying to run from two men who wanted to fight him.
His trial for that case was slated for 20 Feb.
In May Rainer entered a plea agreement for a unrelated misdemeanor charges case
I guess the city just saved some money there, huh?
*** And the tragedy of "HAMLET" continues...
Well, it seems there's a nice twist in the next "act".
Here's the story link:
Hamlet was one of those really STUPID perps that left his fingerprints all over the place at both locations.
(can't hole a gat wif glubs on, dawg!)
SAFE out there, America.
