JACKSON COUNTY, Fla. — A reserve officer with the Jackson County Sheriff's Office has been arrested on charges of attempted murder and aggravated stalking.

For years, Conner was the person who most often greeted Roberts and his officers when they arrived at the local firing range to do the quarterly shooting practice necessary to keep them qualified for weapons. Roberts said Conner left full-time employment as a deputy some years back in order to take the Chipola position... According to Roberts, it appears Conner was in a "depressed state of mind" and that was of concern to law enforcement as the investigation unfolded. Authorities carefully selected the time and location of the arrest, he said... [Full article here]

    Everyone thinks that this is over and it is not. The CI was threatened several times by the employees of FDLE. An investigation is now ongoing and almost completed on behalf of the CI. A civil suit is fixing to go into play against FDLE and Jackson Sheriffs Department and Marianna Police Department. Several different charges will also be brought against the employees. A meeting is being set up with Glenna Parramore and a Federal Attorney. Investigators has completed an investigation on Parramore's behalf and the investigation shows that Parramore was violated on several accounts.
