CONSTANTINE, MI (WTVB) - Jody Parrack was murdered in St. Joseph County on November 8th, 2007, her body found in the Constantine Township Cemetery. Now there’s a break in the case. They say 46-year-old Raymond Emmett McCann, who was a reserve police officer at the time, has been a person of interest from the beginning. He was formally charged over the weekend with perjury for alledgely lying about what he did the night she died. Constantine Police Chief Jim Bedell says if he didn’t do it, he probably knows who did.
In the arrest warrant, investigators cite marks on the 11-year-old girl’s wrists that appear to have been made by handcuffs and McCann’s behavior on the night of her death. He reportedly urged four people to search in the cemetery, but never looked there himself. All of it suggests he might be guilty, but none of it proves a thing. Right now all they can hold McCann for is perjury. His account of where he was and what he did on the night of Jody Parrack’s death conflicts with the information given by a number of other people.
