Three years ago today, Meredith Fisher, acting on a phone message from her brother-in-law, Jason Young, went to his and her sister's house. There, she discovered her pregnant sister, Michelle, beaten, bloody and very dead. The Young's small daughter, Cassidy, had left footprints in her mother's blood. Here is a link to WRAL's archive of stories on this case.
Jason clammed up and lawyered up immediately, and has never cooperated with the investigation. Neither has he been arrested, in spite of a plethora of circumstantial evidence pointing to him as the most logical suspect. He high-tailed it for his home town, where he has moved back in with his mother and step-father. He lost his job, lost a civil suit, lost custody of his daughter and got kicked out of nursing school.
This article, from MyNC.com, sounds hopeful that an arrest will happen soon.
I, too, am hopeful that justice will be served for Michelle and her unborn son, Rylan. It just seems to be a long time coming.
