Justice needed in Klamath Falls Oregon. #KlamathFallsOregon
This petition is gathering signatures for the purpose of requesting the Klamath County Oregon District Attorney sends evidence to the crime lab and solves this case.
27 years is way to long.
The link at the bottom is where the below story was taken from the internet files of the Klamath Falls Herald and News.
There are other unsolved cases listed in the news story. Some of which could be solved too.
Date: July 11, 1987
Victim: Carl Fodge
Synopsis: Unsolved homicide
A landlord found Carl Fodge, 65, beaten to death in his East Main Street apartment.
Days later, city police investigators made two arrests in connection with the murder and took the case to a grand jury. But the grand jury didn't indict the pair, who aren't being identified because charges weren't filed, and they walked free.
The case didn't have DNA evidence linking the pair to the scene, which is why authorities think a grand jury didn't return an indictment, said Jim Toddy, an investigator with the Klamath County District Attorney's Office.
Toddy, whose main responsibilities now include helping prosecutors prepare for trials, has acquired several cases from law enforcement agencies with the hope they could be solved. The Fodge case was one of them.
He said investigators formed a theory on the man's murder - they believe a group of people was visiting him at his home when someone or some people attacked him with a club. Robbery was a possible motive.
Toddy said the case could still be solved if investigators send old evidence to a crime lab and link a suspect to the scene.
