In Flanders Fields

In Flanders Fields
By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918)
Canadian Army

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Brandan Butler of Bossier City was arrested early today by the Bogalusa Police Department on a warrant from BCPD and is charged with the double murder of Darlene Beadle & Karyl Ann Cox.
Butler was known to the women. After the murders he is alleged to have taken Karyl Cox's car, which was later recovered.
Good job by BCPD in solving this one.

BCPD Working Double Murder

Bossier City Police detectives are busy working on the double murder this weekend in Southern Terrace subdivision.  Jacqueline Beadle, and her housemate Kayrl Ann Cox were found by relatives. 
Despite pressure to develop suspects, the detectives are working the case systematically. 
Personally, I believe that pressure, and by that I mean political pressure, rushed the investigation in the Bill Norris triple murder case three years ago and led to a bad conclusion. Gerald Needham was arrested and charged with three counts of first degree murder, but had to be released when the murder weapon was used in another incident in Haughton.
BCPD appears to be determined not to let that happen again.
