Hard time believing

Is anyone else having a hard time believing that these two cops were involved? If just don't make sense. What am I missing?

I'm with you, George. I could buy off on a minor cover up of sloppy police work, but actually committing the crimes? That's a reach for me. Looking at things superficially, I don't see a motive. And what would be Lashbrook's motive for trying to sweep things under the rug? I'm giving all these guys the benefit of the doubt at this time.

Everything about the Ohl story - again, beyond the harassment claim (which we'll hear more about after her civil service hearing later this month) - is absolutely hinky.

Compare the claims reported Thursday to the story Friday. We go from an officer alleging that she had a confidential informant tell her these officers were involved in the abduction, to a showboat preacher giving a very sketchy story of an anonymous tip that he turned over to the very agency that was accused of the crime.

And he did so in such a way that, if there *were* Jodi-killers in the dept (some kind of Magnum Force or whatever), he'd be throwing his sister-in-law to the wolves.

Good Lord, but what kind of idiot would do any of the things he said he did?

It's possible the MCPD officers and the DCI man poo-pooed something they should not have, or didn't leave a proper paper trail, but this is really an incredible story in every detail. I can't honestly say I wouldn't have written this off as one more kook of the sort that pops up randomly and wastes valuable time on a fish story. MCPD has wound up with egg on its face every couple of years when a much-vaunted lead turns out to be a mistaken identity or a hoax.

And Lashbrook would be much better off, career-wise, as the chief who blew the lid off corruption in the force and solved the Jodi case. Especially as concerns the Jodi case, I think this applies to anyone in the law enforcement community.

the mayor has a hard time believing it too.

https://www.radioiowa.com/2011/09/07/mason-city-mayor-says-former-officers-claims-about-huisentruit-case-are-baseless/

but, as we already know, at this time there is no credible evidence pointing at anyone else, anywhere else, either.
