Ira's Killers Have Been Arrested

Two scumbags named Mark Bradley Carver and Neal Leon Cassada have been arrested in the murder of Ira Yarmolenko. I did a great big Marv Albert "YES!!" when I heard the news (thanks hellblazer99 )

There were things I expected, and things I didn't about this arrest.. I had a gut feeling that the killers were not from the University Area, and I was right about that. These two monsters are in fact from Gaston County.

I was very wrong about a couple of things. It never occurred to me that there might be two perps. I don't know why. Also, I was so mystified by the way the killers seemingly disappeared without a trace, I thought we were not dealing with garden variety dumb crooks. I even used the term Lex Luthor to describe the killer. I've never been more wrong about anything. I realize appearances can be deceiving, but just looking at their mugshots I would not use the term "diabolically clever" to describe these guys.

I realize that this is not completely over, because there still has to be a trial. And of course it won't bring Ira back. But nothing was going to bring her back. Yesterday, someone I cared about was dead and no one had been arrested for her murder. I was dealing with two bad things. Today I am only dealing with one. So life is better, and I am happy about that.


NOTE: In a previous posting, I gave kudos to people who had kept this case in the public eye. I neglected to mention a couple of web sites that have been covering it. These sites are the Friends Of Debbie Key blog, and Morons In Chapel Hill. Thanks guys, and apologies for the belated recognition.

Good to hear this. I hope they go to jail for a long, long time!

I haven't commented much on your Ira posts...but I've certainly read them. I didn't comment much because, boy, I really don't know what to say...but I'm glad to see those jerks brought to justice. Or hopefully they will be, anyway!
Thanks. I understand about not commenting. It can be difficult to know what to say, but you did just fine hear. And I appreciate that you read them
...I can't believe they've committed violent crimes before and have been let off. (Fumes, then fumes some more)

About time they found them. They look like two backwoods perverts or rejects from Deliverance. Hopefully this will bring closure.
