FBI joins Riley Fox case? ¦ Will County ¦

WILMINGTON — The FBI has been called in to assist the investigation into the murder of 3-year-old Riley Fox, five years after her body was found in Forked Creek. On Wednesday afternoon, federal agents canvassed the neighborhood where Riley lived with her parents, Kevin and Melissa, and older brother Tyler, until she was drowned on June 6, 2004.

∞ Be nice to see some thing get done in this case, I think back to the false arrest and malicious prosecution and how there was a massive jump to convict Kevin Fox without the facts. 

∞ Seems like Glasgow and his assistants are working toward Election time hand shaking. 

∞ Must be getting close to that time again, seem this is the only time that the States Attorneys office, ie Glasgow, comes out of the woods.

∞ I know we all want answer’s.

∞ Glasgow is an incompetent political hack. ∞ Now comes the hearsay law Glasgow’s pet project, I doubt it will  pass Court muster, but stupid is as stupid does. 

∞ Will County officials lied and eventually They’re methods over Kevin Fox  confinement cost them 20 million dollars.

∞ The cops and the prosecutors in this case should at the very least be fired more appropriately tried w/a crime for their incompetence in the investigation and their bullying and framing of a suspect and costing us tax payers for their screw up.

∞ It’s hard to not cop an attitude for authority when those in authority are so corrupt, incompetent and distrustful.

    It was the sheriff and his men who ran the session in which Mr. Fox is asserted to have confessed, not any other will county officials.

  2. Rebecca Brown says :

    Riley’s family has website (justiceforriley dot com) offering a $100,000 reward for the apprehension, prosecution and conviction of the real murderer of Riley Fox.

    that seems like an admirable thing to do until you consider dad was awarded $15+ million in damages for being falsely accused and held!!!

    what am i missing here, folks?? if it were my child, i’d offer it all

    The millions went to lipo & breast augmentation for a grieving mother

    Have you ever lost a child??? How can you possibly imagine what you would feel like or what you would do? It’s VERY easy to sit back and judge people on something you no NOTHING about.

    What they have done with that money OR whatever they offer as a reward is their business – not the business of every busybody with a computer.

    He confessed to things that the police could not have possibly known

    A non-custodial interview is where your locked in a room with multiple cops asking questions and your not allowed to leave, the same tactics were used at guantanamo, how many of you think you could hold up to that kind of pressure and why was not the total interview of Kevin Fox not recorded.

    The most widely used set of interrogation tactics are referred to as the Reid technique. The training manual based on the Reid technique, which is considered to be the “bible” of police interrogation, was originally developed in 1947 and is now in its fourth edition (11). Police interrogators who are trained in this method are taught to assume guilt, to manipulate the suspect’s emotions and expectations, and to take into account nonverbal behavioral cues, such as hesitant speech, sweating, or dry mouth, as indicators of deception. However, these cues, in addition to being general indicators of stress, may appear more frequently among persons with mental illness because of their illness or the medications they are taking.

    Another controversial police interrogation tactic involves lying to suspects. It is legal for the police to use “trickery and deception” during interrogations, and thus the police commonly lie to suspects about evidence they do not have (6). For example, the police can tell suspects that their fingerprints are on the weapon used in a crime or that eyewitnesses saw them commit the act, even when no fingerprints or eyewitnesses exist. Of course, the hope is that guilty suspects confronted with such “evidence” will break down and confess, but this approach may also lead innocent suspects into falsely confessing. For numerous reasons, persons with mental illness, both guilty and innocent, may be more likely than persons without mental illness to confess in response to such tactics. For example, some mentally ill persons have deficits in social skills, such as assertiveness (12). Three common aspects of assertiveness are asking for assistance, saying “no” to others, and providing corrective feedback. All of these aspects are relevant to the interrogative situation, and their absence may increase the likelihood of confession. Examples of assertive behaviors that some persons with mental illness may not be able to perform during an interrogation include asking for an attorney, denying commission of the crime, and telling the police officer that one is innocent when the police officer is insisting on one’s guilt.
