I have as much to give thanks for as the Native Americans (not Indians) did when the pilgrims (white man) egotistically sailed over and proceeded to make the natives dependent upon alcohol so as to instill complacency while they raped their women, proceeded to steal their land, and graciously move then unto reservations and profit off casinos. These white men whom stole the native's land, now…

Is it possible that law enforcement receive 'bonus kickbacks' for certain types of arrests or busts, not unlike monetary offerings and vacations given to doctors/psychiatrists by pharmaceuticals reps for pawning off drugs on patients. That type of unethical corruption couldn't really exist?

Soon Darren Wilson will be resigning. Which is likely in the best interest of his safety, not to mention, the respectful thing to do. He may wish to consider complete reconstructive surgery rendering him unrecognizeable ala Casey Anthony. Many targets will likely be painted upon him by remaining embittered prior protestors.

Has anyone seen the Michael Douglas film "Falling Down"? I always felt it sad that William Foster (Douglas) was shot by Martin Prendergrass (Robert Duvall), and not the other way around. All he did was draw a colored water pistol. Anyone could have been able to discern such. The over zealous authoritative ego had to bring him down so that he'd never get to see another of his daughter's…

The number required to do away with sales tax is an additional 15% on top of what we already pay. So it would be 22.75%. http://www.cato.org/publications/commentary/consi... And the universal rebate would make it progressive so it's really not too bad an idea if we can get rid of the IRS in…

Lovelace indicted in death of first wife

Cory Lovelace died in 2006; Former Adams Co. Assistant State's Attorney and Quincy School Board member taken into custody Wednesday

An Adams County Grand Jury has issued an Indictment today for Curtis T. Lovelace for the charge of First Degree Murder, with bond set at $5,000,000. 

The charge stems from the 2006 death of his then wife, 38 year old Cory D. Lovelace, who was found dead in their home on February 14, 2006. 

Lovelace, 45, was taken into custody without incident at around 12:15 p.m. Wednesday in the 600 block of Vermont.

After months of investigation, the case was presented to the Grand Jury Wednesday morning resulting in the Indictment. 

Quincy Police Chief Rob Copley said the investigation into Cory Lovelace's death was reopened in 2013 after the department received new information. The previous autopsy and inquest ruled the cause of death was inconclsive. Copley said those results were reviewed by other pathologists who have now determined Cory Lovelace's death was a homicide.

Cory Lovelace's body was cremated following her death. 

Ed Parkinson of the State Appellate Prosecutor’s Service was appointed as special prosecutor in the case.

Adams County State's Attorney Jon Barnard said there were two reasons for requesting the special prosecutor.

"Number one, (Lovelace) is a former employee of this office and, number two, there is a very real possiblity I will be called as a witness in this case," Barnard said. 

Lovelace is a captain in the Illinois National Guard Judge Advocate Corps. He is a former Adams County Assistant State's Attorney and a former member of the Quincy School Board. He is also a former All-Big Ten center on the University of Illinois football team. 

Adams County Sheriff Brent Fischer says Lovelace has been moved to another facility. Fischer said there is not a place to isolate him in the Adams County Jail and with Lovelace being a former prosecutor he did not want him in with the general population.

The Quincy Police Department issued details of the arrest.
