The above photo is of Amy Yager, taken from her myspace page. She is not so lucky, on September 12, 2008 in her home, Jeff David Yager, a Federal Officer, beat the luckiest woman in the world. Then he finished her off and fired 2 rounds into her body. One to the torso, the other at close ranger to her head.
Below is Jeffrey David Yager. The photo caption on my space says "MyBaby and his gun"
This big tin badge coward, murdered his wife. He sits in a Texas jail. Could he or someone post the $25,000 cash required to get out of jail until his trial? It is a possibility.
A news story appeared in a Texas paper on the murder and I was outraged by commentary left by readers claiming to be friends or realted to the couple here is a sample:
"i think a lot of you that have wrote these blogs should be ashame of you're self .you don't know how it is to come up with nothing and try to make something of you're self DAVID GREW UP WITH A HARD LIFE .I KNOW BECOUSE I WAS THER TO SEE HIM EVERY DAY .I KNOW WHAT HE DID WAS WRONG BUT THERE IS A WEAK SPOT IN EVERY ONE OF US .HOW MANY RICH PEOPLE HAVE KILLED IN A BIT OF ANGER? THIS COULD HAVE BEEN YOU JUST AS WELL AS AMY CLEAN UP YOU'RE ON BACK DOOR THEN WORRY ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE'S PROBLEMS HE HAS TO ANSWER TO GOD NOT YOU. YOU DON'T KNOW THE WHOLE STORY. DAVID IS A PART OF MY FAMILY SO I KNOW HOW HE GREW UP . THINK WHAT YOU MAY IT COULD BE YOU NEXT TIME."
Blaming, making excuses, all because we know the person arrested for the crime has become common in our society when a husband or an ex murders their spouse or significant other. Sorry but the friend or relative has not a clue about violence in the home or what a woman similar to Amy endures. And if you would like to send me nasty words in an email or on this blog I suggest you do your homework on my background, first.
When the tragedy was broadcast by the local media , a plea of sorts was sent out asking the public for any information they could provide in the case. Seems very clear cut to me. I was stumped as to what other information they [the police] are seeking? And this is what most of the news organizations asked: A motive for the crime was being investigated. Anyone with information should call the special crimes Tnit at 378-9468. The police are asking the public for a motive??? Again, you have the shooter, the weapon, and the body. Is there any question about that? If they are so concerned and wish to wast manpower begin by checking the police department phone call logs just two nights before the shooting. Didn't Amarillo Police respond to a domestic disturbance call at the home of the Yager's?
There are no room for questions, doubts or stone throwing in this case. It is simple. Jeffrey David Yager Murdered Amy Yager in cold blood.
Today, Amy was laid to rest. It is important to me as the daughter of a law enforcement officer who murdered his wife, and my mother, that changes on how these cases are handled, charged and reported come out of the stone age and into the twenty first century.
Stop sugar coating these cases at both the felony and misdeameanor level. Redirect how they are reported in the media. Train Officers to see the signs within their own units.
Amy Yager, and the thousands before her, did not have to die because someone demanded power and control over their lives.
There's your investigation summary!
