[VA] Text of Franklin County dispatch radio log when Sheriff Hunt withheld alert before Jennifer's murder

[Update, transcript from Roanoke Police Dispatch has been added below also.]

Below is the text from the Franklin County Virginia Sheriff's Department dispatcher's radio log reflecting the time prior to and after the seemingly preventable death of Jennifer Louise Carter Agee. It is being distributed in different forms by the media that are difficult to take excerpts from - so I've converted it to text here. If you notice any errors please let me know and I will correct them. A copy of the original can be found here.

It's a chiling read.

PREVIOUS POST:
[VA] SHERIFF KNEW that Deputy Agee was on the way to kill ex-wife Jennifer - but didn't send out the alert - Almost a half-hour before Jennifer [Louise] Carter Agee was shot to death on Memorial Day, the Franklin County Sheriff's Office was warned that her sheriff's deputy ex-husband [Jonathan Agee] had an assault rifle and was driving to Salem to kill her. But Sheriff Ewell Hunt told his dispatch center not to issue a "be on the lookout" alert to other law enforcement agencies, saying he would take care of the situation himself...

ABBREVIATIONS:
CAR 1 = SHERIFF HUNT
CAR 52 = DEPUTY JONATHAN AGEE.
ADV = ADVISED.
BOL = BE ON THE LOOKOUT

ROANOKE POLICE RELEASE DISPATCH LOG IN DEPUTY SHOOTINGS
wdbj7.com
4:29 p.m. EDT, June 3, 2011

We're learning more about the moments leading up to a fatal shooting at the Sheetz station in Roanoke on Memorial Day. Roanoke Police Department released a transcript of a phone call between the Franklin County sheriff's office and Roanoke City dispatch. During the phone call, a Franklin County sheriff's dispatcher says they were instructed by Sheriff Ewell Hunt "Not to mention anything." Sheriff Hunt could not be reached for comment. But a source close to him says Hunt never gave an order to hide information from other police agencies. Instead he calls it a misunderstanding on the dispatcher's part.

Here is a portion of the call:

FCSO: Ah he has made a remark but see I, see what it is our sheriff is telling us-

DISPATCH: Not to mention anything-

FCSO: Not to mention anything so that’s why I’m sorta stuck in the middle of this and everything.

DISPATCH: I’m sorry yeah but if you want to call him real quick and get him to give us a call and we’ll hook him up with one of our sergeant’s-

FCSO: Okay.

DISPATCH: We have a report that he pulled up in the parking lot of Sheets at Williamson Road, shot a subject and drove off. So if you-

FCSO: So ya’ll, ya’ll have, ya’ll have got a story that he actually has done something right?

DISPATCH: Right.

Here is the full transcription:

FCSO: Sheriff’s office.

DISPATCH: Hey it’s Roanoke City do ya’ll have a K-9 unit that’s in

the city?

FCSO: That’s in the city now?

DISPATCH: Right.

FCSO: Not that I know of.

DISPATCH: All right-

FCSO: What, what-

DISPATCH: We’re getting conflicting statements.

FCSO: Do what ma’am?

DISPATCH: We’re getting conflicting statements that it was a Franklin Country K-9 vehicle that was at our Sheets on Williamson Road that possibly shot a subject. I didn’t know if you had somebody that was out?

FCSO: All right we’ve got some, we’ve got a unit that we’re looking for but we don’t know ah I don’t know, okay where did you say, who did you got your information from, did our sheriff call?

DISPATCH: No-

FCSO: Or do you know?

DISPATCH: We’re getting multiple calls, we’re getting multiple calls from citizens, we have an officer pulling up on scene now, but it’s supposed to be a Franklin County K-9 vehicle.

FCSO: Okay we are looking for a K-9 unit, I think his unit is gonna be, I think it’s 52 on the rear of his vehicle.

DISPATCH: Uh huh.

FCSO: Ah he has made a remark but see I, see what it is our sheriff is telling us-

DISPATCH: Not to mention anything-

FCSO: Not to mention anything so that’s why I’m sorta stuck in the middle of this and everything.

DISPATCH: I’m sorry yeah but if you want to call him real quick and get him to give us a call and we’ll hook him up with one of our sergeant’s-

FCSO: Okay.

DISPATCH: We have a report that he pulled up in the parking lot of Sheets at Williamson Road, shot a subject and drove off. So if you-

FCSO: So ya’ll, ya’ll have, ya’ll have got a story that he actually has done something right?

DISPATCH: Right.

FCSO: Okay all right what is your name?

DISPATCH: (Omitted.)

FCSO: (Omitted) okay what phone number can, I’m gonna have my sheriff call you right, as soon as possible, what phone number can he call you direct to?

DISPATCH: 853-XXXX, let me get a sergeants number that’s on here, actually call SERGEANT ANDERSON-

FCSO: SERGEANT ANDERSON?

DISPATCH: 537-XXXX

FCSO: Okay.

DISPATCH: 537 (inaudible) we do have a victim down.

FCSO: All right 537-XXXX

DISPATCH: Right

FCSO: Right all right I’m gonna have him call him right now, thank you

    Crystal Brame's Family Files $75 Million Claim Against Tacoma
    http://www.komonews.com/news/archive/4095086.html
    TACOMA - The city of Tacoma could and should have done more to prevent Police Chief David Brame from fatally shooting his estranged wife Crystal, her family alleged in a $75 million claim filed Monday against the city...

    (They SETTLED for $12M, on the condition of changes that need to happen, and the money went into trust for their the two children.)
