July 28, 2015 Update: This isn't an update on the case (I wish it was) but my response to the July 2015 article listed below.
I read the statements made by the Corvallis chief of police and just shook my head in disgust. In my opinion, he might as well have said: "Oh, let's just put this mess behind us and move on to more important things. This whole thing has become too awkward and expensive to deal with anymore."
Yeah, his words read like that.
I wonder if Kim was murdered by someone from outside of the homeless circle. Perhaps someone who is filled with hatred but who walks on the path that is used by the rest of the rest of Corvallis mainstream society.
In other words, something doesn't...right from the very beginning...add up.
As for the comment about the "30 seconds of fame"...that was a truly stupid thing to say.
JULY 2015: HIDING BEHIND A RATIONALIZATION
UPDATE FROM APRIL 2015
Yesterday I received an anonymous comment that I subsequently published under a previous post that I put up about Kim Hakes.
The new comment shared the following information with me:
"I am Kim's older cousin. The last time I saw her she looked healthy and was sober. I know she struggled with her addiction. It broke her heart to have to give up and lose her babies. Luckily I was blessed to raise her first born son as my own. Then I had her oldest daughter for a few years until she wanted to return to Kim. I know that Kim is finally at peace in the universe. I know that her killer will be judged by our higher beings and his/her fate is already sealed. I love and miss you Kimberly! See you down the road!"
The part of the comment that jumped out at me is the last sentence..."See you down the road."
It almost sounds like it was posted by a long-haul trucker.
I am back in Corvallis, tonight. I have been away from this city at night for over six months now. Tonight I will stay outside at the transit center and then go back on the road at some point tomorrow.
But tonight it will be all about Kim. I met a woman yesterday who is the epitome of wrong thinking.
She is not homeless, on the contrary...she lives in a $650,000 home. And she hates homeless people...
especially women. Suffice it to say that she is a truly horrible human being.
I'm glad that Kim never met her.
Kim's murderer has not been found yet...and almost six months has passed since she was brutally slain. I wish her killer would do the right thing and just go away and die. In my opinion, that is the only proper thing left to do.
