July 27, 2009 seems like forever ago.
It’s when an 85 year old veteran of three wars was found dead in his West side home in Dayton Ohio.
Sgt. Major North Woodall had survived WWII, Korea and Vietnam, but at 85, was killed by….
We still don’t know. I write a post about this every year. I still have the front page of the Dayton Daily news with that news hanging on my wall, in front of my desk, for me to look at every day- and hope that one day, someone will talk. Someone will say something, and the bastards that killed him will be found and brought to justice.
There is a reward for information leading to the conviction in this murder. Someone knows who did it. Someone has talked. It’s time for the police and the prosecutor to pull a rabbit out of the hat- and avenge this hero’s death.
We’ve seen the Dayton Police Department at their best when they killed the Oregon District shooter a year ago. We’ve seen them at their worst when they shot rubber bullets and tear gas at a rally for George Floyd and Black Lives Matter. I’m still grieving over the death of the Sgt Major, and I don’t want anyone to forget that this crime has gone unsolved.
