As y'all can see, there are some serious concerns about how Chris's case has been handled over the last 2 years.

Having worked thoroughly on this case, as much as it pains me to say, she is right.

I support her efforts to have an OCSO assigned.

Blink,I know you have much respect for LE,and I try to.
The fact is sometimes a missing person doesn't get the attention they deserve,because of their history.I think this case was just blown off.IMO
I support this mom 100%.

I think you are 100% correct.  I think at a very basic level, the Apopka Police are ill equipped to handle missing persons and homicide cases from a resource perspective.  Almost exclusively, homicides in this jurisdiction are handled by OCSO, I think Rachael deserves a sound reason as to why Chris's case would not be as well, as she has requested but not received.


The bottom line is that APD is responsible for correcting the mistakes they made in insuring a successful prosecution in this case, but they cannot turn back the clock, they must be dealt with.

It really bothers me that a grieving Mother is feeling intimidated and frightened at these prospects interfering further in her son's case, that should not be.  She just watched them dredge her child out of a marsh for 5 days.

The same one searched a dozen times, and the same one he has been for 2 years.

Missing Man's Mom Says Hataway Didn't Kill Son
Posted: 5:05 pm EST February 25, 2011Updated: 5:14 pm EST February 25, 2011

APOPKA, Fla. -- Police took WFTV back to a drained Apopka lake Friday to show how they're digging for the bones of missing man Christopher George, and they found more than just bones in Lake Carter off Ocoee-Apopka Road.
Friday was the fifth day of searching, and investigators found another shoe that most likely belonged to George.

Thursday, George's mother had harsh words for possible suspect James Hataway, but Friday said her son could've been high and just drowned in the lake.

The circumstances of his disappearance are still a mystery.

Fifty crime scene investigators from Orange, Seminole, Lake and Polk counties and FDLE are removing buckets of mud one-by-one from the lake bed and sifting through it using quarter-inch screens to make sure no evidence is missed.

"We take that bottom layer of muck, about four to six inches depending on where we're at, maybe a little deeper, and then that muck material is placed onto screens," Apopka Deputy Chief Donald Heston said.

Missing man's mom wants Apopka police to back off
By Amanda Evans and Jacqueline Fell, Team Coverage
Last Updated: Saturday, February 26, 2011 5:46 AM

 ::snipping2::
The chief of police took her down to the site where a large number of bones were collected. Rachael said she talked with him about adding one more member to this team out here -- an Orange County Sheriff's investigator.

Rachael said she's unhappy with how the investigation has been handled since her son was reported missing two years ago.

But she said she's being ignored.

"You guys keep doing your job," Rachael said. "Just bring one more set of fresh eyes that's never been on this before. Orange County, which is what county it's in. Bring them to the scene right now and have them start working side-by-side with you."

Apopka police said there are nearly a dozen agencies from Polk, Osceola and Lake counties helping.

Rachael also said she doesn't think James Hataway killed her son.

"Someone killed Chris," Rachael said. "I firmly don't believe it is Jimmy Hataway, who is behind bars. And that someone is sharing our streets and who knows who's next. I have no clue. Someone is out there who killed my son."

Hataway has been a person of interest in this case as well as another missing persons case in Ocoee. Rachael told News 13 though she does think Hataway is involved.

Ocasio Family Still Searching For Daughter
Family Appears On 'Nancy Grace' updated 2/26/2011 2:15:14 AM ET


APOPKA, Fla.  WESH.com

The discovery of human remains and other evidence at an Apopka lake on Thursday will likely lead to some closure for the family of Christopher George.

George's ID was found inside a wallet at the lake, but the family of Tracy Ocasio is still seeking some answers.

Ocasio disappeared three months after George in 2009. The person of interest in both investigations is James Hataway.

After investigators with the Apopka Police Department announced they found remains they believe belong to George, the mother of Tracy Ocasio said she hopes searchers will also find her daughter.

James Hataway's attorney: Give me 100 potential jurors, please
Defense attorney Jeff Leukel wants a large pool because of he's concerned about Hataway's ability to get a fair trial in Central Florida, given all the media attention from the Tracy Ocasio case.

SANFORD Attorneys today asked a judge to bring to court a huge number of potential jurors 100 when attempted-murder suspect James Hataway goes on trial, something now scheduled for March 28.

That's because Hataway 30, is suspected in another case, a high-profile disappearance, that of Tracy Ocasio, who's been missing for two years.

Witness: James Hataway aroused by choking women
By Rene Stutzman, Orlando Sentinel
8:19 p.m. EDT, March 16, 2011

SANFORD James Hataway, the suspect in one woman's disappearance who faces trial in an attack on another, told a friend that he is sexually aroused by choking women, according to a new court document.

Hataway, 30, is in the Seminole County Jail, awaiting trial on an attempted murder charge.

Prosecutors last week disclosed a new witness Francisco Arellano, a man they described as Hataway's former roommate.

Arellano told prosecutors that he went with Hataway to parties and bars and watched him pick up women. Hataway would drink heavily, Arellano told prosecutors, and used the same pickup lines.

He was "very aggressive" toward women, Arellano said, and later, Hataway would talk about "certain acts that would turn him on sexually, including choking women," according to the document.

Document: Witness Said Hataway Liked Choking Women

Posted: 5:02 pm EDT March 17, 2011Updated: 5:15 pm EDT March 17, 2011
SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. -- A new witness is making some damaging comments about a James Hataway, who is accused of trying to kill a woman. Hataway is also the only person of interest in the cases of two other people who are missing.
DOCUMENT: Summary Of Witness Statement  http://www.wftv.com/pdf/27229589/detail.html

The witness said Hataway enjoyed attacking women.

Francisco Arellano told the State Attorney's Office a similar story to the one he shared with WFTV in 2009. However, he was just disclosed as a state witness last week, which isn't sitting too well with the defense.
