City Coun­cilor, Willie Walk­ing­stick believes the delay in the LaFontaine mur­der inves­ti­ga­tion is delib­er­ate, and at a press con­fer­ence today, he lev­eled charges against Sher­iff Tony Sweet and Ver­non Van Bib­ber, one of Germaine’s lead­ing cit­i­zens.

It’s been three months since the FBI agreed to look into the LaFontaine case,” Walk­ing­stick said, “and no agent has yet been assigned.”

When asked why he believes Sweet and Van Bib­ber are respon­si­ble, Walk­ing­stick cit­ed an unnamed source with­in the Sheriff’s Office. He also point­ed out that both Sweet and Van Bib­ber have pre­vi­ous close rela­tion­ships with the Bend office of the Fed­er­al Bureau of Inves­ti­ga­tion.

Ver­non Van Bib­ber is over­ly pro­tec­tive of this town,” said Walk­ing­stick. “There is no doubt in my mind that he would like to delay this case until it just goes away. I’m not going to let that hap­pen.”

Sweet and Van Bib­ber both flat­ly denied influ­enc­ing the FBI to delay inves­ti­ga­tion into the 50-year-old mur­der. “Walk­ing­stick has a hair up his butt,” said Sher­iff Sweet. “He’s a dis­grace to the city.”
