Callihan Apprehended Near Defunct Pet Store

JPD Chief Joseph Wade delivered some rather shocking news after Daniel Callihan was apprehended yesterday.  Chief Wade said the presence of small animal cages where Callihan was caught showed the presence of a "human trafficking" operation. The revelation was reported by national media such as CNN.  However, there might be a more simple explanation for the cages. 

Go to 4:28 in the video posted below.  

JPD Chief Joseph Wade told the media:

What it looks like, this may be a location where there has been some human trafficking done. We see cages - small animal cages. [It’s] very, very disturbing to me as a police chief, and as a father, to witness and see what I just saw

JPD said Callihan was arrested in the 3900 block of Boozier Drive.  Did JPD find evidence of a trafficking operation or something else? 

Check out what is at 4019 Boozier Drive: 

The business has been closed for some time.  More investigation is warranted but the presence of the cages and pet store may be pure coincidence.

Maybe I wasn’t listening closely enough but why were the suspects taken to Rankin County jail. I wouldn’t be opposed to some police brutality in this particular case.

I'm not going to any pet "store" on that road.... ever. Past or present.

Chief Wade has become a real media hound. No PIO?

This may be where the metro’s reptile tribe are extracting adrenachome from local children to sustain their covenant with Satan.

We are concerned (rightly so) about pets being euthanized in Jackson. THERE HAVE BEEN 34 HUMANS murdered in the same city.

Attn 6:20 p m. maybe the astute police officers carried them to Rankin county jail because of the reputation of Rankin county for inmate abuse.

I'm assuming the Chief is talking about actual physical evidence of human trafficking that was left behind. I won't go into detail but it's stuff you can't can't take home, you know (unless it's an STD).

Did y'all happen to see on WAPT just before 6:30 tonight the video of WAPT's reporter Ross Adams talking to this murderer, Daniel Callihan? Callihan claimed he was sober and only on Lexapro and has "borderline multiple personality disorder". I imagine that WAPT will show that video again later tonight.

Probably a whacky pit puppy mill related cages taken from building. Nobody selling children would keep them in cages in the woods where they'd be sick and filthy and bug bitten, thence "unsellable"/ untrafickable.

This crime was heinous, nonetheless, and may yet demo a drug crazed idiot who thought he could sell children.

Judging from Google Earth’s street view, I imagine you would hear banjo music if you drove down Boozier Drive.

I appreciate Chief Wade's acknowledgement of, and recent comments about all the homicides in Jackson, but he looks to have gone off at half-cock here.

The perp does look like a cast member from Deliverance.

"borderline multiple personality disorder", I don't care how many there are, put all of them away.

I'm pretty sure "borderline multiple personality disorder" isn't in the DSM.

The perp walk set up by Chief Wade paid off. He was spilling his guts to the media.

Good luck to the public defenders assigned to this low-life. After confessing to multiple reporters the best that they can hope for is no "needle."

Thanks for that tidbit. Another unspeakable crime, committed by someone on an antidepressant.

Media does its best to omit mention of substances which may have contributed to crimes, since purveyors of substances are their biggest advertisers.

An article on the WAPT website quoted a woman saying that Callihan lived in her Jackson neighborhood. All other news reports have said he is a Louisiana man.

@3:16 PM The reporting was confusing. His neighbor is in La.

There is a source saying Callihan's father murdered a girl in 1990. If, he lived in Louisiana, what was he doing hiding in Jackson?

Like father like son said...

@6:07 PM - Like father, like son.

Thank you, 6:57.

Does anyone else find it odd that the mother of the girls was named Callie and his name is Callihan? Terrible crime and the children must have had a horrible trip full of terror from Louisiana before they wound up behind the former pet store. What in the world could a pet store have kept out in the woods? I don't see how he could have found this site if he didn't know about it prior to the recent crimes. The motel where his "girlfriend" was arrested must be fairly close. Evil from beginning to end. And, his comments certainly help prevent an untainted jury. He thinks he is smarter than everyone else and reminds me of Charles Manson. No comment on Chief Wade; he is trying to his job in an understaffed department in a poorly run city.

For those who keep asking why he was in Jackson. Can you name a better city to go to if you have committed a crime and are looking for a place to hide out?

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.
