Craigslist Job Ads End in Murder

By Danny Fenster

Timothy Kern responded to a Craigslist ad in Ohio offering $300 a week to tend more than 680 acres of farm land. He was trying to provide for his three sons. His body was found on Friday, buried near a shopping mall in Akron, Ohio, the Associated Press reported. He was shot in the head.

He’s not the only Craigslist related murder.

According to the Associated Press, Norfolk, Va., resident David Pauley, 51, was lured to Ohio,  also with a Craigslist ad. Pauley was found dead in a rural area 90 miles south of Akron earlier this month. And on Nov. 6, a South Carolina man was shot before escaping after responding to a Craigslist ad.

Two suspects are in custody: a high school student charged with attempted murder and Richard Beasley, a 52-year-old in jail on separate charges.

FBI Official James Nice to Become Akron, Ohio Police Chief

Veteran FBI agent James Nice,  who is stationed at headquarters in Washington, is heading to his hometown of Akron, Ohio to become police chief, according to a city press release. He will assume the post on June 6.

Nice, 56, currently serves as Chief of Undercover and Sensitive Operations at FBI Headquarters. He directs all undercover operations for the bureau in the U.S. and overseas, the city said.

Several years back, he got assigned to the Cleveland FBI so he could be closer to his father during his last illness.

“Five years ago, I knew I wanted to return home,” Nice said, according to the release.  “My dad spent 81 of his 83 years in Akron, and I was glad to care for him before his death in 2008.”

During that time, Nice said:

“I had the opportunity to get to see Akron’s police department in action. “Without exaggeration the men and women of the Akron Police Department who worked with me on that case were among the most professional officers I have ever served with in 26 years. The people of Akron are lucky to have law enforcement that works together better than any place I have ever seen.”
