Grand Jury: Puts the Gag on Taylor Behl Murder

I've been watching you from a distance
The distance sees through your disguise
All I want from you is your hurting
I want to heal you
I want to save you from the dark

The source of the begining of this poem, has been suspected to be by Taylor Behl. You can find the whole poem here, but you may have to roll your mouse over the text holding the left button down to read it.

The Richmond Times Dispatch is reporting:

"The judge presiding over a multijurisdictional grand jury hearing evidence in Taylor Marie Behl's death has signed a gag order prohibiting witnesses who appear before it from publicly discussing their testimony."

There is one witness who is not too happy about this, Taylor Behl's mother The Richmond Times also reported:

"Yesterday, the attorney for Janet Pelasara, Behl's mother, said Pelasara would legally contest any attempt to extend a gag order in the case to apply to her. Pelasara has not been called before the grand jury. But the order is a clear indication of the level of frustration that has developed over leaks of investigative information in the case."

And we have reported some of these leaks to you, but regardless, we are confident the State of Virginia will successfully indict, prosecute, and convict Ben Fawley for the commission of this crime. And as each day passes, Ben Fawley waits now, for what he is sure will come, that little paper, the warrant, that we hope will be his notice that he can not escape death row.

To many it may appear that we have tried and convicted Ben Fawley for this crime already. But our court system, and our laws, and more important our decency will consider him innocent until he is indicted, tried, and convicted. And once Virginia has done that, if he is guilty, we hope with Janet Pelasara that he contines on "his downward spiral to hell."

Do not expect a trial, like some have occurred in California. Virginia is a no nonsense state. We do not spar over trivialities. The state will get down to business, and while this case may take longer than some, the beat of the pace to the final outcome will be deliberate, and conclusive.

And yes, Virginia has the death penalty, and when Ben Fawley is met by the jury, and judge, no matter how he tries to explain away the death of Taylor Behl. The case if it goes against him will seal his fate.
