A Senseless Tragedy

Bonnie Driskill, mother of murdered Lacey Ferguson will join us for the first half of the show.

It was just after one in the morning when passengers in a slow moving car opened fire outside the Quik Stop Market in Modesto, California.  Police say that part of town had been known to have gang activity and it seemed that on the evening of August 24, 2003, it would be no different.  

Investigators claim that the intended target, Adrian Vega, didn’t even know the woman who would lose her life in the shootout…a 25-year-old mother named Lacy Ferguson.

Authorities say that there were at least two men in the car that the gunfire came from and they were both Hispanic males.  Witnesses told cops that the car drove through the store’s parking lot and left, but then returned moments later to shoot at a car that had just parked directly in front of the market.

Lacy Ferguson and her boyfriend, John Ritchie, were both standing in front of that car and even though they ducked when the shots rang out, it would be too late.  Ritchie had been shot and Lacy was mortally wounded.

Police say that they have little doubt that the shootout was gang-related and that Ferguson did not know Adrian Vega or the men who would take her life.  Investigators found that most witnesses claimed to have seen at least two men in the car.  Authorities believe that the car was a 1997-2003 dark colored Ford Focus, Toyota Camry or Corolla.

Despite steadfast efforts by Lacy Ferguson’s family, no one has ever come forward in her murder.  Since Lacy’s death, her mother Boni Driskill, has sought justice for her daughter by flyering local neighborhoods and keeping the story alive and in the public eye.  Now, cops are hoping that AMW tipsters can help in putting Lacy’s killers behind bars where they belong.

Second Segment:

Joining the show is Andy Thibault, The Cool Justice Report, and Author, Law And Justice In Everyday Life, to discuss his fascinating work and lawsuit filed against the city of New Orleans Police Department surrounding the case of Gabe Caporino. 
NEW ORLEANS, LA – Thirty seven years ago – with several police officers crowding her – Grace Caporino briefly touched and read a number of pages in a 3-inch-high stack of reports about her missing husband. After a few minutes, they forced her to leave.

Today, the New Orleans Police Department still doesn’t want to know or hear anything about the Gabe Caporino case – or the reports. That’s why I filed a lawsuit Thursday, Oct. 6, 2011 in the Parish of New Orleans. My attorney, Brett Prendergast, also filed a related motion to obtain all investigative files on behalf of Gabe Caporino’s family.  Complete Article
