Arrest made in Nuns' murder

The Mississippi Department of Public Safety issued the following statement and picture :


Rodney Earl Sanders, 46, of 210 Aponaug Road, Kosciusko has been charged with two counts of capital murder in connection with the killing of two nuns in Durant earlier this week. After an exhaustive interview Friday evening, MBI agents were able to develop enough information to charge Sanders.

"Sanders was developed as a person of interest early on in the investigation," said MBI Director Lt. Colonel Jimmy Jordan. "With the cooperation of the Durant and Kosciusko Police Departments, Holmes County Sheriff's Department and the Attorney General Office this heinous crime has been resolved."

Sanders is being held in an undisclosed detention center awaiting his initial court appearance.

Thanks for the fast update on this horrible tragedy! This was all over national news today, but I just searched all the local media sites & there's nothing about this sick SOB being identified or arrested yet on any of their sites! Thanks for reporting this update so quickly. This is such a horrific story & all the other media should have been on top of this big news!

There is a special chair in hell for him

I have looked but have been unable to find the story of another murder of one or two nuns in the Camden, MS area Between Canton and Pickens about five years ago. Can someone locate that story?

Have they determined the motive? I hope this will be prosecuted to the fullest! Bring back the electric chair

5:26, We don't need an electric chair. If he is found guilty we need to bring back public hanging.Make him dance on the end of a rope in full view of the public and others will think twice before they commit crimes.

The Church itself will demand he not get the death penalty, so everyone can cool their "I'd do x to him" bit.

ACLU, Amnesty International and Catholic Charities will all sing kumbaya and pray for his forgiveness. He's simply the lamb who just temporarily went astray. He has been re-flocked.

Parallel Verses

New International Version
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

King James Bible
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

What about the name Rodney Earl Sanders suggests Islam...

sweet fancy Moses.

Once he's convicted and locked up, he will get whats coming to him. Probably the same way he killed the nuns.

He will then go to the hottest part of hell. You got to be nuts to hurt a Nun.

What's really really sad about this whole event is that these two Nuns were very very exceptional individuals. Not only did they give up their secular life for a life of service but they were Nurse Practitioners which took a large undertaking to accomplish. So they were smart and compassionate. They were also not from here which makes it even sadder because they were helping a community they had no connection to. THEY PROVIDED FREE MEDICAL HELP to that area. I certainly do hope that the community they served takes notice and teaches their children the correct way to treat others. God Bless those that come after these two wonderful Nuns, if there are any...

I just looked up his address. IF it's the house with the blue roof ( describes the residence at the listed address, as having been built in 1916, so I'm guessing that's the one), I can see how the Suspect maybe got the idea to go and rob those two angelic women. The GoogleImage image shows an elderly man sitting in front of the house. The Nuns probably made regular calls, caring for that man. The Suspect, presumably, is a redundant descendant of that household, who maybe decided the nuns had pharmaceuticals he could steal.

There's a slender white woman sitting in a chair, visiting with the old man in the GoogleImage photo. Could that be one of the nuns?

Put an implant in his ear with an audio of Kumbaya that plays 23 hours a day. NEXT.

What's wrong with our "justice" system is that we are too lenient on thugs like this guy. We give them more rights & privileges than they deserve. Punish the bastard to near death & then punish him more. Do it publicly. Bring would-be or wanna-be thugs in and make them watch brutality. Show them pictures of the murder scene, tell the story of the nuns, & then show them the consequences of the thug life. Water boarding, beatings, hangings, make it real and leave an impression in their minds that they can never shake. Maybe, just maybe that will deter this type of crime. Instead, he will get a full defense team, a roof over his head, a gym, 3 meals a day, etc. That won't deter shit. Welcome to AMERICA!

Trump would seek to deport him and then rethink the whole thing. Can't trust him either.

Book Of Revenge Chaper IV Verse 23:4... said...

It's a total waste of your time and mine to post Bible verses. If that was an attempt to explain evil or take a knee in forgiveness, forget it.

I can almost, sort of, understand how a bad actor can shoot another person. Bang, it's over, grab their shit and run and you're overcome with nervousness and guilt for about four hours. But slitting throats or stabbing to death two old, warm bodies while listening to and watching them struggle and plead is beyond all comprehension. But, I'm sure there is an appropriate Bible verse for it.

3:35, I am willing to bet that they died praying rather than pleading. And, as to what is wrong with the justice system, have you heard any of the current drivel about too many black men being locked up? What ever happened to "if you do the crime, you do the time". Instead it has become a racial thing.

I can hear the defense now. He's poor, unemployed, been off his mental health medicines because of it but is a good person otherwise, helps the elderly, kids w/ homework, etc etc

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.

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.
