Before I accuse anyone named Adam, I still like to use my opinion again why this case may end up to be one of the classic frame-ups in modern history of criminology. What this case says to me over the many months of research and deep thinking is that the right people could have been caught and convicted had this case occurred in a jurisdiction elsewhere than one where mass drug busts were not a fact of life.
Johnny Bongivengo knew the boy was innocent, but as I have said, the man did the wrong thing. He wanted to protect his asset, the situated informant that was going to deliver for him the thirty to sixty drug dealers or users that was going to give him another term as the DA. He could not afford his informant murdering a young woman in a rural farmhouse domolishing his carefully constructed house of mass indictments. The key to solve this case and free Jordan Brown is to "follow the arrests" Johnny and his buddies in the State Police made over the weeks after they arrested and charged Jordan for the crimes.
That is the key to understanding my opinion on why Johnny arrested Jordan within a single day of the murder! It has to be the most inventive solving of a murder I have heard about in my life. It did not have to be that way. They could have just asked Mr. Informant, "by the way, did you plug any young lady because all deals are off if you did"?
All deals are off for Mr. Informent when they commit other crimes while they are helping Mr. Prosecutor. This is what is said to every informant in any country. The prosecutor and the cops are not in the business of covering up for informant side crimes. (Those that do should be ran out of their positions immediately.)
But Johnny did not want this so close to the Primary where his opponent, Joshua Lamancusa, was accusing him in the press of helping himself to drug forfeiture money that he and his maybe his cop buddies had access to. Johnny is not a guy known to have sticky fingers, but one wonders if the real killer, the situtated informant, took his payment under-the-table from Johnny from this slush fund. (Then was blackmailed into the contract killing on Kenzie Houk to avoid any druggies coming after him and his family. The real doer was later charged by Lamancusa for being a no-account drug dealer, along with some relatives in his family. Josh did the right thing, but it was too late to help Jordan, due to incompetant defense counsel, who were scared to connect the arrests to their client's innocence.)
Lamancusa could have ended this madness by dropping the murder charges as soon as he took office. He could had turned then to Johnny Bongivengo and pressed him against the corner. He could had cut a deal with Johnny to maybe get the truth out. However, a foolish mistake by Jordan's daddy looking in the days after the arrest for a lawyer for his boy, landed this mess into the clutches of the wrong people who did not need to have this mess handed to: the office of then AG now Governor Tom Corbett.
Corbett and Bongivengo go way back. How long I have no idea at this time, but Johnny really kiss this guys ass plenty of times. I wonder; despite their political differences, who scratched whose back the most? Just look on Youtube if it is still there for that story about that 2006 bust, the first big bust of Johnny's DA tenure, to see Corbett waxing romantic with that loot in the background. Corebtt somehow liked the younger Bongivengo so much as one the "movers and shakers" for the Task Force in that area of Pennsylvania. Why would he not protect his main asset for being such a good citizen for his state?
The architect of this frame up, who hired the guy to do this dirty deed, must be lucky it did not all blow up in his face. I envy the man who did this. He fooled many people and made others so damn scared for the loss of their mass litigation plans that Jordan was roasted and served as dead duck flambe before the hired gun left his truck on Feb. 20, 2009.
Using the handgun with the birdshot was a masterstroke. He needed the media to confuse things so much in the opening stanzas so when the truth came out that the shotgun was indeed not the murder weapon, nothing could stop the court from sending the boy to prison or the media from passing the lies againa and again as the "truth". Only a moron in other jurisdictions would buy that good old-fashioned decoy. The gun is the very essence of this case. That shotgun could not have done the killing. "The gun was recently fired". Who took you out of the academy with that conclusion, Mr. Policeman? If the gun did not do the killing, the boy is 100% innocent of the crime.
Only lies are keeping this child in prison. These are the most heartless lies known to man or woman or child. These were lies concocted by adults to save them from the slammer. May their lies be a millstone around their neck! None of the "witnesses" can stand muster in apellate court. This is why I think the juveniloe judge deliberately "scotched" hios verdict. It only made the bad guys think they won their case so he would not have his court turned into a Biker Version of "Romper Room & Friends". The lies are still there for any Appelllate judge to not be afraid to overturn the verdict and not have Biker Dudes try to hurt them. This is not about little girls coached to say things that did not happen. If fact, the little girl was a no show, but her drunk-as-all-get-out old man was there, making an ass out of the law.
By my count, eight or nine people need to see the insides of a prison cell for what they did to Jordan and his family. A few of this number need a few months in "the hole" aka solitary confinment for what they put Jordan Brown through all these years. If not, they all need to see these charges overturned in front of them this month or there is no hope for Jordan outside a civil court, where I highly suggest he and his dad pursue damages against the state for its false imprisonment, prosecutorial misconduct that dwarfs the kids for cash scandal and miscarrying the justice that needed to be brought against the real killer and his employer.
Of these over half-dozen people needing immediate incarceration, the real killer and his employer are the one that need to be removed from their freedom for what they did to Kenzie Houk and his unborn fetus. It is the most cowardly act to begin with. In other jurisdictions, like Ohio, these clowns would be in Columbus, awaiting their turn in the gurney for what they did to that woman and that fetus.
Two counts of capital murder wasted on an innocent boy of eleven at the time! What was Johnny thinking? "Got to prevent my assets, here Janice, find a way to frame this child as an adult. No one better touch my meal ticket to another term." That failing, Tommy Boy then said, "This will come back to bite me on the ass. I do not want to sit beside some bozo in prison. I cannot finish my life like this Here, Jason, frame another innocent person like your did in '96. They should had you run out for you doing this but you were lucky. Here, try your luck and law degree to risk possible disbarrment not only for yourself but for me too as your boss. Linda, put the kettle on. And get me that Jerry Sandusky file pronto. That old f-g-t is going away for a long time too. I do not care if I may be sharing a cell with him if I am found out framing Jordan Brown. I will be Governor by then. Then I will be above the law then. Ha. Ha. Ha."
You are going to pay. Oh! You Sate boys are so fried, just like your County Judge pals for taking those kickbacks for putting all those kids into prison! We will see if you boys are above the law or not!
