With everything going on in the D.C. swamp with Democrats trying to impeach President Donald Trump, it’s hard for many Americans to actually see real news taking place in other parts of the country.
This is especially true given a case involving a former Republican lawmaker being murdered has received almost zero coverage from the mainstream media.
And the uncovered evidence is nothing short of bone-chilling.
Judge David Goodson has set a trial date for October 2020 in the case involving a woman charged with killing former Arkansas state Sen. Linda Collins, who was found dead outside her home.
Rebecca Lynn O’Donnell faces capital murder and other charges in connection with the death of the former Republican state lawmaker.
O’Donnell was arrested in June, less than two weeks after police found Collins dead outside her home from multiple stab wounds.
As reported by Arkansas Online, prosecutors are now seeking the death penalty against O’Donnell and will additionally charge her with abusing a corpse and evidence tampering.
Prosecutors said O’Donnell, a friend and former campaign aide to Collins, was filmed removing security cameras from inside Collins’ home on the last day the former senator was seen alive.
O’Donnell pleaded innocent to all the charges against her at a hearing back in July.
Let that sink in.
A woman has been accused of: (1) stabbing a former Republican lawmaker to death; (2) abusing the corpse of the dead lawmaker; (3) tampering with evidence; (4) and removing security cameras from inside Collins’ home the day before the murder occurred.
Now consider the fact that the mainstream media has largely refused to cover this story.
Collins was first elected to the Arkansas Senate in 2014 and served up until her tragic death.
Back in July, Arkansas Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson gave his condolences to her loved ones.
“She was a good person who served in the public arena with passion and conviction,” Hutchinson said. “The first lady and I extend our deepest sympathies to her family and friends during this difficult time.”
This is the second story in the last week involving the death of a Republican lawmaker.
Republican State House Representative Jay Powell was found dead Tuesday morning at a resort in Georgia.
Powell’s death was unexpected and is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigations in Georgia.
The cause of death for the 67-year-old lawmaker is still unknown, which has only fueled suspicions.
Reports are suggesting that he actually died late on Monday night, and that he was not found until Tuesday.
Powell, who had been in office since 2008, was the chairman of the Ways and Means Committee and also sat on several other committees.
It’s pretty sad — and revealing — that both of these stories have been largely ignored by the mainstream media.
