To the editor:
I'm the truck owner that had my truck shot up on
July 20. Everything on the flier was the complete truth.
First, Knuth did not exit my truck. He was shot in my truck. That
is why there are bullet holes in the door and blood on the seat and
As the flier said, we tried to call Wright on Aug. 3, 4 and 5. We
were not told until the 5th that he wasn't coming in to his office.
We never called after that.
On July 31 it was a conference call with Wright, Chief Erlenbush,
state trooper Brad Sterling and Teresa Newlun (my wife). That's when
Wright told my wife we could have the truck back as soon as the
defense attorney signed off on it. You can confirm this by calling
trooper Brad Sterling at 217-524-5581.
Next, if you look up Illinois Criminal Procedure 5/116-4, you
will find it allows the state's attorney to take the passenger door,
the front seat and the carpet and keep these for evidence and return
my truck. These have to be replaced anyway.
I believe McIntosh is just showing his authority or he doesn't
know the law as well as he thinks.
