Brian Rooney Pleads Not Guilty in the Strangulation of Michelle Gardner-Quinn


Why does this come as no shock to anyone?  Brian Rooney pleads not guilty in the strangulation and murder of Michelle Gardner-Quinn. With all the evidence piling up against him, including DNA … the process of innocent until proven guilty goes forward.

Why do this cases begin to sound familiar? Who does this remind one of? I wondered if he walked home or got a ride from a friend in a silver car that night he last saw Michelle Gardner-Quinn?

1. Brian Rooney was the last person known to be with Michelle Gardner-Quinn as it was taped by a surveillance camera.

2. The use and blame of alcohol within the act of a potential crime.

Rooney, who told police he was intoxicated the night he met Gardner-Quinn, said when he was arrested on unrelated sex charges that he didn’t remember what happened that night and must have blacked out, according to the affidavit released Wednesday.

“I honestly don’t know what I did that night. If I did it I deserve to die,”

That comment by Rooney sounds a little like this one.

I don’t blame them for that at all. I mean, like I said, if I was… if I was looking at this from the outside, I’d think I had something to do with it because, you know, a lot of stuff happened that’s just weird, that just doesn’t make sense, either. (JVDS interview with Greta, March 1 & 2, 2006)
