Investigators seek “happiest fugitive” in Macomb, IL – KWQC

MACOMB, Ill. (KWQC) – A smiling fugitive out of McDonough County, Illinois has people scratching their heads.

Samantha E. McLeish, 29, is featured as this week’s “Fugitive of the Week” on the Macomb Area Crime Stoppers (MACS) Facebook page.

McLeish, who is wanted by the McDonough County Sheriff’s Office for possession of a controlled substance, appears smiling, put-together, and remarkably relaxed in her booking photo.

“Happiest fugitive I ever saw,” John Geisendorfer commented on the MACS Facebook post.

“Is this real,” Stephanie Davis-Campbell wonders.

“Looks like they gave her time to apply lipgloss and blush for her mugshot,” commented LeAnn Clinton, who adds she thought the photo was fake because it appears to resemble something from the TV show Law and Order.

The photo and charge against McLeish are real, and as of Thursday morning investigators are still looking for her.

America’s most wanted deadbeat dad arrested in Calgary

After eluding authorities for nearly 20 years, a man believed to be America’s most wanted deadbeat dad is behind bars, thanks to a cherry pit and the investigative efforts of a Bearspaw, Alta. restaurateur.

Joseph Stroup — who had been living under the name Joop Cousteau — was detained by the Canadian Border Services Agency and transported to the U.S. on Feb. 15. He is currently in custody to stand trial on charges of violating child support.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services website, Stroup owes more than $560,000 in child support.

In 1989, he was ordered to pay $100 a month for his four children, but he told the court he was unemployed and medically unable to work, so the payments were reduced to $14 a month.

But in 1996, the U.S. court learned

Eric Holder Flirts With Presidential Bid, Hooks Up With Hollywood

CBS recently ordered a pilot episode of a new show, “Main Justice,” in which the protagonist will be based on former Obama attorney general Eric Holder. Since Holder is an executive producer, the narrative will no doubt depict him as the crusader for justice that he sees in his own mirror every day. It will also likely serve as campaign propaganda now that Holder is openly flirting with running for president in 2020.

To be fair, Holder’s career has had some high points. But no objective review of his record would ever conclude that he’s a maverick who bucked the system in the pursuit of justice. That part is pure Hollywood.

Here’s one vignette in Holder’s career guaranteed to end up on the cutting room floor: as deputy attorney general at the end of the Clinton administration he made the official call behind the now-infamous Marc Rich pardon. Rich, a former

FBI: Hired gunman may have killed Seattle federal prosecutor Thomas Wales

SEATTLE — The second-highest ranking Department of Justice official was in Seattle Wednesday to announce an even higher reward in an unsolved case of what could be the first assistant U.S. attorney killed in the line of duty.

Thomas Wales was shot and killed in his Seattle home in 2001. The FBI believes he was killed because of his work as an assistant United States Attorney investigating fraud.

Despite countless leads and a $1 million reward for information, the FBI has yet to make an arrest in the case.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Wednesday said the National Association of Former US Attorneys Foundation will add $525,000 on top of the FBI reward — bringing the total tip reward to more than $1.5 million. That tip must lead to the arrest and conviction of the killer.

“I intend to see that we leave no stone unturned in
