Did they make some mistakes in trashing the Coatesville PD and putting Coatesville’s best narcotics officer on administrative leave? O wait, if forgot, Walker, Schenk and Miss Patsy say that Coatesville’s problems are entirely from the previous administration.
That big bad previous administration that doubled the size of the Coatesville PD, began a narcotics division and made the Coatesville Police Department the envy of small departments across the state. You know that administration that harried the gentleman farmer and the drug dealers. That bad administration that started the revitalization; the revitalization that would have eventually rid the town of drug dealers permanently.
You can play both sides in a city the size of Philadelphia or Baltimore. The drug dealers can be told to take the murders away from Center City or Baltimore Harbor. But will that work in Coatesville?
If what happened to Aaron Turner turns out to be what the people are saying; Coatesville’s bad news will go international. It will make Le Monde and the Taipei Times.

Accused dog killer linked to missing teen

COATESVILLE — District Attorney Joseph Carroll confirmed Tuesday night the accused drug-dealing dog killer arrested late last year is a suspect for the murder of a teenager missing since October.
Carroll’s statement comes roughly 10 weeks after investigators collected human hair and blood from chain saws and other areas inside a city home where police arrested 29-year-old Laquanta Chapman and 19-year-old Bryan Byrd, according to search warrants.
Previously, officials were reluctant to refer to the missing teen case as a homicide. But Carroll said Tuesday there is little possibility 16-year-old Aaron “Head” Turner is still alive and Chapman has been interviewed regarding the teen’s disappearance.
Even so, Carroll stressed investigators have not charged anyone with the killing.
