Suicide ruling re-evaluated

A well-deserved second look

With respect to Lewis County Sheriff Steve Mansfield’s comment, the only “morons” in the Ronda Reynolds case are those Lewis County officials who can’t seem to understand what is as easy to see as the noses on their faces [“A second look at 10-year-old suicide ruling,” page one, April 20].

If I were a Lewis County resident, I would be very, very worried about the poor quality of law enforcement and crime detection exhibited thus far in this case. The sheriff’s office is obviously all about CYA, not truth and justice for its citizens.

I look forward to reading that the Thurston County judge does change the death certificate from suicide to homicide. Then I look forward to reading that the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office gets off its duff at long last to solve this case. It really shouldn’t be that hard, given the overwhelming evidence.

— Stephanie T. Babcock, Renton
