Updated May. 13, 2013 @ 11:44 am

The city of Waynesville released a statement Friday regarding a recent lawsuit.


The city of Waynesville and four current or former city employees are being sued for allegedly covering up the circumstances surrounding a death in 2010.


Kelsey West filed a civil suit on Thursday against former Waynesville Police officer Gary Brankel, Police Chief Robert Carter, Assistant Police Chief Clarence Liberty, dog catcher Brandon Robertson, and the city of Waynesville, accusing the city officials of covering up circumstances surrounding Rhonda West's death, which took place on Jan. 31, 2010.


The city of Waynesville said in the statement it “regrets the 2010 death of Rhonda West and sends our sympathies to her family.”


The city of Waynesville said that it had requested an independent investigation by the Missouri State Highway Patrol “as soon as these allegations came to light” and it is awaiting a final report from the investigation that has been going on for several months.


“The City also wants the truth and will request that appropriate authorities prosecute any possible criminal offenses,” the press release said. “However, we do not condone baseless accusations against innocent people and the damaging of their reputations.”


The City said it will make a full and complete report upon receipt of the MSHP report.

Sorry, I am just not seeing this conspiracy theory you speak of in either case.

And I have seen nothing that doesn't disprove one either.  Tell me how long it takes to conduct an investigation when they (Waynesvillle School District) already conducted one enough to know that the money was gone in the first place and even had a dollar amount ?  Hillman backed off due to his ties to the many of the folks involved (and this I CAN understand) but really....  how long does it take with no word, no updates, no nothing.  Then tell me something to make me believe that something isn't being done to cover something up... because I CAN tell you if it were anyone of lesser status in the community their name would be ALL OVER THE PLACE....... 
yeah whatever~*

As far as the Waynesville school I see a HUGE cover up....How many people have been arrested as a "suspect" in a crime...and found not guilty later.. But their name(s) were already dragged through the mud?? Why hasn't this "person of interest" been arrested like any other Jane or John Doe in the county...and then have to prove her innocence if that is the case???

I might have misspoke--- I don't know of a change in venue, just saying there should be one.  Oh by the way, I don't stand to make one cent off of the lawsuit -       I was kind of wondering that myself, considering how personally ripped up some get.....      And as far as national coverage goes, already in the works.....  Ya don't get to say NO.

   Does that mean you think every department in the county should immediately jump on each and every case that every other department works? The whole idea of jurisdiction is to cut down on duplication of effort and make one department responsible for the case. I hate to say this but the fire fighters do not rush off to the next city for a fire without an invite and nobody jumps on them. (FYI, the fire depts. have an even more effective system of mutual aid then the police do but they usually do not have to worry about coverage on a future court day like we do.) I understand that many seem to be hacked off at WPD over this specific case and there are many critical remarks running about but some of the remarks posted so far are way off base.

 If another dept. in the county has apprehended a 'jay-walker' you should probably let them handle it. But a dead body in the middle of Hwy. 17 should be of great concern to the county Sheriff!

Well let us do some math. The SRPD has about 22 officers, WPD about 12, all other depts. in the county combined about 18 or so

But yes the PCSD 12 deputies should do all of the work on cases.

Are we also supposed to handle the major cases on Ft. Wood?

I should probably point out that the PCSD budget is a little thin to handle all of the above.

So I think we shall continue to let the officers within the jurisdiction where the crime happened handle the case.

In other words status quo.

Still don't get why people are jumping on PCSD about this. Yes , I get that comments made about having to cover the whole county does in way open them up to this but the thing to remember is they are not the dept that has been accused of wrongdoing.

    Yup got to agree with you. I find it is funny that the posting of the lawsuit and the selected bits of info they filed with the suit is stirring people up so much. There is always another side to a story.  Suspect when Waynesville is in a position to respond several things may get much clearer. At that time you may have enough info to form a reasonable opinion of this mess.

You are right that until we can know both sides of the story we don’t know everything however  I do think there is something to this at the very least some unprofessional  acts by the WPD.  There are more than selected bits of info they filed, a person can read the whole lawsuit.  I also believe this the type of stuff that should stir people up. Anytime accusations like these are made about our public officials’ people should take notice.  I do have to say I don’t understand why you don’t think this should stir people up.  Small town, death, an alleged police cover that is a big pot that needs stirred or at least kept up with. What I don’t believe is people jumping on the PCSD for something that they were not involved in. PCSD was not named in the lawsuit but since you are on here it does make for an easy target.

   I do believe that the reported facts of this case should stir people up but I also believe that we should wait until these facts are proven or disproven before total war is declared. Asking questions about the case is one thing or expressing concern about the case is one thing. Making wild statements such as we have read on here without any idea if the rumor you heard is correct or reading something into written documents is another. Example the "dog catcher" issue. He may be a dog catcher now but he is (from memory) a class A certified POST officer. There is no higher ranking in the POST related laws. So slamming WPD because the "dogcatcher" did the investigation is BS. The real question should be did he do or not do an adequate investigation of the case based on the facts he had at hand. And for a clue to that you are going to have to wait because the city of Waynesville is not going to respond in a public forum until they have their facts lined up and the MSHP report in their hand.

OK. What you say makes sense.The wild statements didn't bother me because one either the person who stated it I have never really took serious two I took them as people blowing off steam. It will be intersting  to see what is in the MSHP report.

When the question of police integrity is asked, as many of you are in this very disturbing event, I believe we must first ask for a true answer to this question:

Question:   Why do almost all Police officers carry a throw down weapon?
Answer:   In the event they need to cover up a wrongful death committed by a police officer!

This settles and makes mute any further discussion of Police integrity, doesn’t it?
