Madison Police arrest Clayton Kelly for sneaking into Rose Cochran's room (Updated)

Update II (4:27 PM CST, 5/17/14): The first update was posted between 9:00 and 10:00 AM today.  The original post was published at 11:40 PM last night. It did not mention the identity of Rose Cochran.  The original headline stated "Madison Police arrest Clayton Kelly for sneaking into St. Catherine's".  I changed the headline to reflect the Rose Cochran angle this afternoon.  The problem was I posted right before midnight, hence leading to the confusion.  My apologies.  

Update (5/17/14): Clarion-Ledger beat JJ to it (We were both working on it at the same time although it beat JJ by a few minutes.)  but the victim was indeed Rose Cochran, wife of Senator Thad Cochran.  JJ confirmed her identity with several non-campaign sources.  She has lived at St. Catharine's since 2000 since she suffers from dementia.  She lives in a special unit dedicated to such patients.  A Youtube video with pictures of Mrs. Cochran in her bed was posted and soon taken down nearly two weeks ago.  Story is breaking.

Original post:  Madison Police arrest Clayton Kelly for sneaking into St. Catherine's Village.

The Madison Police Department just issued the following press release:




Hmmm..... in other words he "allegedly" sneaked into St. Catherine's Village and took pictures of someone.  Who is the victim? Is there more to the story?

Who is Clayton Thomas Kelly? Here is his Youtube channel and blog.  He is apparently a Chris McDaniel supporter as shown by these photos on the public part of his Facebook page.



The image posted below is a from a FAKE McDaniel account BUT  Mr. Kelly posted it on his own Facebook page as if he apparently thought it was real.

Hmmm. Could be politics at play here. First; the aide is jet setting around the world at taxpayer expense. Now this.........

Somebody help. Is Clayton Kelly anybody? I'm guessing he "allegedly" photographed the wife of someone with significant name recognition. He looks like someone I wouldn't let near my kids.... Or my grandparents now. But other than that, who is this slovenly-looking POS?

Does he work for the McDaniel campaign or is he just one of those obsessed followers? Have you noticed that with these people? McDaniel must be able to use jedi mind tricks.

Thad Cochran's wife has been a resident in their Alzheimer Unit at St. Catherine's for several years.

I am convinced (my opinion here) that McDaniel is an unethical sleazeball himself, and attracts similarly inclined slime to his campaign.

IMHO of course.

Chris is NOT a sleezeball, this guy did this on his own accord. You people posting on here slandering Chris must be Thad trolls... If you're ok with supporting a guy eh has helped bancrupt our nation over the past 41yrs by all means move to the Democrat party!

If indeed, this man was trying to get a picture of Mrs. Cochran, I would not put this past Henry Barbour to have set this up. There is a special place in hell for people like Henry Barbour; he doesn't just start off in the gutter, he lives in the gutter. Every campaign he works on, has a sleazy, low-ball base to his sense of fair play.

Anonymous said...

The suspect apparently took a video of Thad's wife and put it on the net. It has apparently been removed. This is what happens when the Republican Party feeds the beast like they have since 2009.

If Senator Cochran has done such a GREAT job, why is Mississippi LAST IN EVERYTHING. I am voting against ALL incumbents. We MUST have term limits.

Brilliant theory, @9:13! There's even a picture of this Kelly creep with the Truant (State) Senator on his Facebook page. That Henry Barbour is a crafty one. Very crafty indeed! Shouldn't you be making tinfoil hats?

What kind of twisted mind believes taking a picture of a senator's wife afflicted with Alzheimer's can be used to persuade voters to vote against the senator? If this is true, he is delusional. I was already voting to reelect Sen. Cochran, but if I weren't, I would now. I also think he has been there too long, but at this point I do not see a qualified candidate running against him.

Anonymous said...

8:20, where, pray tell, did you come up with the idea that this person is "one of those obsessed followers" of McDaniel??? What???

Obviously your twisted mind is playing tricks on you.

I, for one, am pleased. The show is about to get good. Got my popcorn ready!

McDaniel is crazy! You just need to listen to his radio programs from the past. If McDaniel beats Thad, I'm voting for Childress! I'm sure many of my fellow Republicans will do the same. We don't need another nut in the Senate. We need to get him out of the State Senate next -along with the other Senators who endorsed him! Sojourner, Gandy, Smith, Parker, Hill, Hudson need to be gone! The Tea Party is destroying the Republican Party. I'm sure that Moak and all the "D's" are getting a kick out of this!

All incumbents have to go especially Cochran. I would vote for Kenneth Stokes before I would vote for that senile old bastard.

This stupidity reminds me of back in 2009 when rabid Cochran supporter and MSGOP insider wannabe Alan Lange of Y'allPolitics (now known as Y'allCochran) posted on Youtube a poor taste anti-Semitic hit piece attacking then Congressman Travis Childers.

As the existence of the clip became quickly and widely known notable local attorney Jim Craig wrote:

At Y'all Politics, the focus has been on Rep. Travis Childers, who has yet to declare himself on the President's proposal. And this time YP has gone too far. The two-minute video attack on Rep. Childers' visit to Israel is -- yes, I will say it -- Anti-Semitic. What else do you call an ad that plays Jewish music in the background, tells the Representative to "get a souvenir yarmulke" on the trip and shows pictures of orthodox Jews juxtaposed with Americans at Town Hall meetings?

Lange was forced to take the attack clip down and apologized for his lapse in judgment after the outrage came pouring in.

Wannabe's do really stupid things to achieve their political goals. Unfortunate and all-to-often true.

Maybe this tea party member will learn what compassion is when he spends several nights in jail. What is the old adage "birds of a feather flock together"? This was probably done without the express knowledge of McDaniel, but his declarations in the past egged it on. McDaniel is a Ted Cruz wannabe--dear God one is enough. I am supporting Cochran. Just say no to sleeze.

Anonymous said...

"Just say no to sleeze"? Then I think you would have to sit this election out. Both sides have done some pretty low down things that are a big turnoff to a lot of voters. I wish Cochran had decided to retire and there had been better candidates in this race.

I think what this guy did is terrible. And I think what Kay Webber and Cochran did is terrible, too.

Anonymous said...

I am voting for McDaniel. I don;t know much about him, but I don;t have to because he cannot win. I am voting for McDaniel to send a message to Thad. The message is - THE USA IS BROKE. YOU CANNOT KEEP DOING THAT SAME THINGS YOU HAVE BEEN DOING FOR 40 YEARS. I doubt Thad will get the message. I don't think he can even understand what we are trying to say. He needs to retire.

Looks like Melanie Sojourner is a JJ reader, or was tipped off about this article last night. Once again, the CL fails to acknowledge JJ beat them on a story.

http://on.thec-l.com/1gBfFBB


Why make an issue out of the McDaniel campaign knowing about this last night when the Cochran campaign knows the first JJ article on this was posted last night? There seems to be a lot of misdirection going around instead of addressing the elephant in the room.



Anonymous said...

I am not a fan of McDaniel by any stretch of the imagination. But I wouldn't pin this on him just because he posed for a picture with the guy.

Remember the Ricen scandal? The accused - Dutschke - was photographed with every local/state/national Republican in the region. But that doesn't mean he was working for them when he carried out his attack on the President.

SAY said...

This makes me so sad. I have known Rose Cochran, and visited with her at St Catherine's in the past. That someone would do this to such a lovely and kind person, is beyond my comprehension. Does anyone have a clue as to what he hoped to achieve by this vile act. I surely hope he serves some jail time to teach him a little respect for the elderly and sick.

Why is no one asking how he got on her floor. It's a lock down area.

CL must have heard you 1:42PM

Did McDaniel camp know about break-in before it was public?
Geoff Pender, The Clarion-Ledger 2:47 p.m. CDT May 17, 2014


"Kelly was arrested Friday night by the Madison Police Department. Police released a statement about Kelly's arrest late that night, but neither it and nor initial news reports mentioned Rose Cochran. The release only included a brief statement about his charge of exploitation of a vulnerable adult. The blog Jackson Jambalaya was the first to report the arrest and post the statement from Madison police.

A Clarion-Ledger article posted online at 9:24 a.m. broke the news about a connection between the arrest and the Cochrans."

Taking a photo of this woman and posting it for all to see was a truly despicable act.

I have friends whose mothers have dementia/Alzheimer's. It is a heartbreaking illness. Truly, the long goodbye.

This act is a new low in political smear campaigns.

Nope, 4:44, I think Bill Allain's family would disagree this is the all time lowest.

Anonymous said...

The CL did not "break the news" of a connection to Rose Cochran. While JJ's original post last night did not contain her name directly, it was clear who the post was about. Look at all the comments before JJ's update this morning - the commentors clearly knew who this was about. CL is just trying to save face while back tracking on their story.

How did he get on the floor? The Alzheimer's ward at St. Catherines is a lock down facility. You have to have a key card, which is tracked, to even get in the front door.

Lots of horse shit going on here by talking mules, most not named Francis.

This has to be connected to the Barbours, right? Well, sure it does. No, wait, it's the McDaniel campaign and not the Barbours. How do we know it wasn't Feel Bryant? His MHP guards have access to those St. Catherine key cards, right?

And why was Congressman Trey Gowdy seen at the Wylie Evers Stokes airport the next day? This is clearly an Obamacare conspiracy since the lady in question is the beneficiary of a congressional healthcare plan, exempt from the national plan.

Could the Brand family be involved or does their talent start and end with fake ballots? Look for the answers to these and other questions on Gallo Monday morning.

The Barbours have single-handedly destroyed the Republican Party in Mississippi by acting exactly like Democrats. Congrats.

SAY said...

5:31 pm How he got in is indeed a question that needs to be answered. A key Card or code is necessary. After normal hours you may have to be buzzed in even with card/code. Like gated communities, people sometimes just go in when someone else opens the door.

Anonymous said...

5:12, I agree with you about Allain.

However, that was a smear campaign against the candidate himself. This Tea Party right winger went after a candidate's ill spouse who is living in a special care facility.

Mrs. Cochran's right to privacy and her security have been compromised. Someone at St. Catherine's has some explaining to do.

(The Cochran story is trending on Facebook.)

Anonymous said...

I agree 7:59 that it is different from the Allain matter, since Mrs. Cochran is not the candidate. I guess my comment was more towards the fact that there have been really outrageous, slanderous allegations made in political campaigns in the past that were very hurtful of other candidate's families. I would kick my husband's a$$ if he ever ran for anything, who wants to put up with this?


I feel really bad for her children that now have to worry about the safety of their mother. The idea of a stranger being in her room has got to be terrifying. I would be furious with St. Catherine's and would probably move her to another facility. And I would be concerned if I was any other family that had a relative there.

Anonymous said...

St. Catherine's Village is the only 'care home' I've ever seen with an armed guard at the gate. Everybody coming through is screened, they're on camera and their ID is noted. Nobody walks in or strolls in or 'sneaks in' behind somebody who opens a gate or door. You can bet your ass some employee was paid to allow access to the facility.

Most retirement homes use the same key code which changes according to month and year. Don't know about this place.

It will be tough to prosecute. You don't have invasion of privacy when you allow visitors and there's limited privacy. Taking a photo isn't a crime that I know of. Although the act was dastardly, where's the crime?

Didn't we just go through all this hooplah with the James Meredith statue?

He is charged under section 43-47-19 of the MS Code, the Mississippi Vulnerable persons act.

It is indeed a crime and depending on which subpart he is charged under, the penalties range from 1 to 20 years

Kelly is a McDaniel voter.

McDaniel apologized because people now see...McDaniel put this guy up to it.

Had the video been damning...he'd own it.

What McDaniel wanted is some info on her history...he didnt get it.

This is the death nail in McDaniels political coffin.

Good riddance.

Anonymous said...

9:09 Although dead wrong, you have hit on the 800 pound gorilla in this room.

I have no idea what this bonehead/these boneheads thought they would accomplish politically by posting that video. But I do know the HIPAA laws have draconian penalties (up to a $50,000 fine PER EVENT) when personally identifiable health information is disclosed without written consent of the patient or patient's guardian.

Clearly St. Catherine's is on the hook for allowing the patient's face to be placed on the internet , even if they were the victim of some slime. Institutions are supposed to be perfect, under the law, and they would be liable if her husband complained, and maybe even if he didn't, since this is now a public event.

Anonymous said...

Mrs. Cochran lives in Siena Center at St Catherine's. Employees and family members enter the front door with individual key cards, anyone else must be buzzed in. Folks familiar with the facility know another way in. As someone with parents there, I blame the sick person who did this, not St. Catherine's. My condolences to the Cochran family.

Anonymous said...

10:21, by saying McDaniel wanted "some info on her history...he didn't get it," are you suggesting this guy who got into Mrs. Cochran's room, or perhaps someone else in cahoots with the persons behind this "intrusion," could have tried to access Mrs. Cochran's private records at St. Catherine's?

(I hope the HIPAA hammer is dropped on someone.)

You HR wannabees are topwater turds. HIPAA has nothing to do with this situation. No matter what manner of records the intruder might have absconded with (and he didn't have sense to even know what he was doing), there would be no HIPAA violation.

HIPAA violations only involve those with patient information releasing or allowing access to that information by others. That applies to medical facilities, insurance companies and records clerks, not thiefs in the night or those who might abscond with soiled diapers.

In short, HIPAA ain't got shit to do with this.

Firstly, it is despicable that anyone would do this kind of thing. What gain was there for this schmuck involved? What kind of attack ad could reasonably be crafted from this kind of footage? Did he really think this would help his candidate? Just plain dumb. I guess there is truly no such thing as "bad" publicity.
Secondly, I met with Sen. Cochran a few weeks ago. I had not seen him in a few years. I was shocked at how he had changed. While I do not support McDaniels, I have concerns regarding the deterioration of our incumbent. It may have been the better part of valor to step down, but I know it is hard when one has done this so long. It is no surprise that"normal" people flee the political realm with all the kaka slung around. Definitely a contact sport.

Anonymous said...

On one of the stations this morning, they said he did this because he was starting a blog, wanted something to put on it and draw visitors, etc.

This guy crossed the line. Courts will deal with him.

Glad Mrs. C is ok and safe.

Does this have any influence of who I will be voting for? None whatsoever. Feeling sorry for Mrs. C has nothing to do with what Cochran is and has been doing in DC. I'm still going to vote on the issues of this race that are important to me and will be voting against Cochran.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
