S5E65: No Justice...The Murder Of Wellston Police  Sergeant Jesse L. Henderson.

No Justice...The Murder Of Wellston Police Sergeant Jesse L. Henderson. Still questions about the mysterious lack of prosecution.

On October 1st, 1981 Police Sergeant Jesse Henderson was shot and killed as he interrupted a burglary at a local liquor store in Wellston, Mo. He was shot once in the chest as he exited his vehicle. One adult and one juvenile were arrested and charged with capital murder. Ken Dye is our guest. He was the lead homicide detective on the case. Ken talks about the type of person and Police Sergeant Jesse Henderson was. He also discusses the inside perspective of the handling of the murder investigation, from developing suspects to the arrest of the murderer. Though charged with the murder of Sgt. Henderson, he was never prosecuted, the charges were inexplicably dropped by the prosecutor. To this day Ken has no answers about the mysterious lack of prosecution for the murder of Police Sergeant Jesse Henderson.
