Arrest Warrant Issued for Jesse L. Matthew for Traffic Violation, Person of Interest in Case of Missing Hannah Graham
An arrest warrant has been issued for Jesse L. “JL” Matthew, the person of interest in the disappearance of missing UVA student Hannah Graham. The arrest warrant is not for his connection with the case of missing Hannah Graham, but instead for a traffic violation for reckless driving. Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo said at a news conference Sunday that Virginia State Police have issued warrants for Jesse Matthew on a charge of misdemeanor reckless driving. Police Chief Longo went on the say, “I believe Jesse Matthew was the last person she was seen with before she vanished off the face of the Earth because it’s been a week and we can’t find her. I’ve made no mistake about it. We want to talk to Jesse Matthew. We want to talk to him. We want to talk to him about his interaction with this sweet, young girl we can’t find.” 18 year old Hannah Elizabeth Graham has been missing since September 13, 2014 in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Jesse ‘LJ’ Matthew, POI
An arrest warrant has been issued for a person of interest in the disappearance of University of Virginia student Hannah Graham, but he is not being sought for anything to do with the case.
Charlottesville, Va., police said today they are looking for Jesse L. Matthew, 32, on two counts of reckless driving, because he sped away from the police station Saturday after showing up there and asking for a lawyer.
Police say Matthew was seen driving at a high rate of speed, before he evaded capture by authorities monitoring his whereabouts.
Matthew is still a “person with whom we would like to talk to about the whereabouts of Hannah Graham,” Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo said.
Charlottesville Police ID the Person of Interest in the Case of Missing UVA Student Hannah Graham as Jesse ‘LJ’ Matthew
The Charlottesville police have identified the POI in the case of missing University of Virginia student Hannah Graham as Jesse ‘LJ’ Matthew. The authorities had only previously described the person of interest as black male, 32-year-old, 6′ 2″ tall with dreadlocks dressed in all white. 18 year old Hannah Graham has been missing since 9/13/14.
Charlottesville police have identified the person of interest in the case of missing University of Virginia student Hannah Graham as Jesse ‘LJ’ Matthew. In a press conference on Friday, police revealed they had identified a person of interest in the case, but they did not release his name at that time. Police call him a person of interest, they have not referred to him as a suspect nor is he charged with any crime related to the Hannah Graham case. Police say they have had contact with him but formal questioning has not taken place.
Jesse ‘LJ’ Matthew has confirmed he met the 18-year old in Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall and bought her drinks, but says she never got in his car. She went her way and he went his. Hmm, sounds an awful lot like he just left her on the beach, doesn’t it?

Just when you thought American college kids could not get any more ignorant … They’re parents must be so proud.
Who would be dumb enough to sign a petition in support of ISIS … From MRC TV, courtesy of CNS News comes the following VIDEO that just makes one shake their head in disbelief. Student after clueless student walked up to the individual with the petition to support ISIS and they signed it. Media Research Center’s Dan Joseph was able to get 11 people to sign the petition. The only saving grace were two guys, one wearing a hockey jersey who stated, “you should be ashamed to even live in this country” and the other wearing tan shorts and shades who went on a tirade regarding the ignorant individuals that would sign such a petition. KUDOS to both of you.
Maybe one of the most head scratching exchange was when the petitioner said, “war is not the answer”. The response from the backpack wearing student, “No it’s not”. Then he says, “beadings are not the answer either” The petitioner quickly and sarcastically responds, “It depends on what the question is.” Then amazingly the student replies, “yeah, that’s true”.
I can only assume that the college students who were willing to sign my petition calling on President Obama to support the terror group, were ignorant to the group’s existence.
God, I hope so!
Over the period of about an hour, I stood on the campus of George Mason University in Northern Virginia and asked passing students to sign my petition. The petition was adorned with the ISIS flag above the unambiguous headline, “SUPPORT ISIS.”

On Sunday, friends and family realized they hadn’t seen or had contact with Graham, and a call was placed to the Emergency Communications Center to report her missing. The Charlottesville Police Department then notified the UVa Police Department of the report.
UVa has set up a website with information on the case along with a letter from the Chief of Police, Michael Gibson. On the page, Graham is described as 5’11″ with a skinny build, blue eyes, light brown hair and freckles. She was last seen wearing a black crop top with mesh cut outs.
VIDEO – ABC7 WJLA
Police released photos taken from a surveillance camera three hours before Graham went missing. The images show her dressed in black slacks and a gold and black, bare-midriff top with mesh cutouts, the same outfit she is believed to have worn at the time she went missing.
Spokeswoman Corinne Geller said state police have been in close contact with city investigators but are not currently involved in the investigation.
“We are in communication and we’re assisting where we can,” Geller said.
The search for Graham is hitting social media as well as the streets.
Pleas from Graham’s friends are being shared on hundreds of Facebook pages and friends on Twitter have reported that she told friends she was headed to a party before she disappeared.
UPDATE I: Police Search for Missing UVA Student.
There are numerous surveillance cameras in the search area and police have collected a number of videos, including one of Graham leaving her apartment complex.
Graham is described as approximately 5’11″ tall with a skinny build, with blue eyes, light brown hair and freckles. She was last seen wearing a black crop top with mesh cutouts.
Charlottesville police started looking for Graham Sunday when she was reported missing. “Detectives are out speaking with any person who had communication with her. Detectives are searching her phone records, bank accounts, computer, to see if there is any indication of where she might be,” said Captain Gary Pleasants of the Charlottesville Police Department.
On Sunday searchers used a bloodhound to try to track a scent but it turned up nothing. Searchers will likely bring in another bloodhound Tuesday.
Monday, the Virginia State Police joined the search.
Hannah Elizabeth Graham, the missing University of Virginia student who has not been heard from since Saturday, was spotted on surveillance video outside of a bar early Saturday morning, according to the Charlottesville Police Department.
The FBI joined the search for Graham on Tuesday. Also Tuesday, the Albemarle County Sheriff’s Office assisted with what they are calling a search and rescue effort.
“Last night we expanded our search about 25 to 30 blocks Right now we are focusing on another five to six block area which is outside of the zone we looked at last night,” said Captain Guy Williams of the Albemarle County Sheriff’s Office.
Police adjusted their search area Tuesday for a missing University of Virginia student, at least the fourth young woman to go missing in the area in the past five years.
The shift in the search for Hannah Elizabeth Graham is based on video that police obtained showing Graham walking early Saturday outside of a bar where she was last seen, Charlottesville police Lt. Robbie Roberts said.
The video, which was not released, shifted the search east of the original focus of the investigation, he said.
If anyone has any with information regarding the whereabouts of Hannah Elizabeth Graham, please contact the Charlottesville Police Department at 434-970-3280 or Crimestoppers at 434-977-4000.
GW Students Unaware of 9/11 Anniversary, Or Journalist’s Names Beheaded by ISIS … But Are Able to Name Celebrities Involved in Nude Photo Scandal
SAD, JUST PLAIN SAD … SO MUCH FOR A COLLEGE EDUCATION THESE DAYS.
The Young America’s Foundation released a VIDEO on Wednesday, a day before the 13th anniversary of 9-11, where George Washington students were asked whether they were aware of the significance of the date and whether they knew the names of the two American journalists who were recently beheaded by the terrorist group ISIS. Pathetically, for the most part, they had no idea. Oh but fear not for the future America, most all could name the celebrities involved in the recent nude pic hacking scandal.
Other than the two co-eds in the beginning of the VIDEO who seem to have a clue and up on current affairs and know their history, perhaps the best answer of anyone in this VIDEO was when asked by the YAF spokeswoman Ashley Pratte asked about President Obama’s strategy for dealing with ISIS. One girl responded, ”Does he have one?”
The results of the study:
- 29 of 30 (97%) students could could name a celebrity involved in the nude hacking scandal.
- 4 of 30 (13%) could name either of the American journalists, James Foley or Steven Sotloff.
- 6 in 30 (20%) knew this week was the anniversary of 9-11. What’s even more tragic is not only have these kids forgotten, they may never have known.
Maybe we have finally figured out how to get the youth vote … just have all the candidates in their political ads be in their birthday suits?

Koch Brothers Donate $25M to the United Negro College Fund … Sen. Harry Reid (NV-D) Was Unavailable for Comment
Because the mind is a terrible thing to waste, even though Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi do it on a daily basis
Koch Industries Inc. and the Charles Koch Foundation, which are headed by Charles and David Koch have donated $25 million to the United Negro College Fund to create a new scholarship program that will help motivated and deserving students not just get to and through school, but to become our next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs. Oh those evil Koch Brothers. What say you Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (NV-D), are you going to vilify the Koch brothers for this as well, like you do as a diversion to create a GOP bogeyman?
The billionaire industrialist Koch brothers, known best for shepherding big money to conservative causes and candidates, have given a $25 million grant to the United Negro College Fund, the organization announced Friday.
The money will come from Koch Industries Inc. and the Charles Koch Foundation, which are headed by the brothers. Most of the money ($18.5 million) will go toward a scholarship program. The other $6.5 million is provided for general support to historically black colleges and universities and the UNCF, $4 million of which will be set aside for loan assistance.
The UNCF is the nation’s largest minority education group.
Just how much heat will Michael Lomax, UNCF president and chief executive, receive for the praising of the Koch brothers? He said, “UNCF is proud to announce this new scholarship program that will help motivated and deserving students not just get to and through school, but to become our next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs We are enormously grateful to Koch Industries and the Charles Koch Foundation for their long-standing support of UNCF and for helping to create new opportunities for earned success and a better future for our students.”
The overarching goal of the UNCF/Koch Scholars Program is aimed at broadening educational opportunities so that aspiring African American students can better understand how entrepreneurship, economics, and innovation contribute to well-being for individuals, communities, and society. A key component of the program is based on research from UNCF’s Frederick D. Patterson Research Institute, which found that an annual $5,000 scholarship dramatically increases UNCF’s recipients’ rate of retention and likelihood of completion. Those who graduate with a college degree are expected to earn $1 million more than their peers with a high school diploma over a lifetime. And 79 percent of college-educated African Americans actively participate in the labor force, 3 percentage points higher than Caucasians. Furthermore, multiple studies show that those who earn at least a bachelor’s degree have higher rates of employment, have greater lifetime earnings, are more civically-engaged, and are more likely to establish a college-going tradition in their families. The new program will dedicate $1 million to supporting research to help understand the drivers of success for students in college and beyond.
Charles Koch said, “Increasing well-being by helping people improve their lives has long been our focus.” He went on to say, “We have tremendous respect for UNCF and we are hopeful this investment will further its effectiveness in helping students pursue their dreams.” Just curious Harry Reid, Nanny Pelosi and Barack Obama, what have you really done for African-Americans in pursuing their dreams except keep them government dependent and under this administration more unemployed?
Since Democrats cannot blame GWB anymore and cannot run on Obamacare, the economy or foreign or domestic policy … its blame the Koch brothers 24/7.
The ball is in your court Harry Reid.
Three More Victims Identified After Elliot Rodger Deadly Killing Spree in Isla Vista, California … UCSB Students Cheng Yuan Hong, 20, George Chen, 19, and Weihan Wang, 20
Three more victims of the Elliot Rodger of the deadly killing spree have been identified. The three victims who were stabbed multiple times to death in unit No. 7 of a two-story, charcoal gray building on Seville Road have been identified as 20 year old Cheng Yuan Hong, 19 year old George Chen amd 20 year old Weihan Wang. The police state that Hong and Chen were listed as tenants at the apartment along with the 22 year old mass murderer Elliot Rodger. All three victims were students at the University of California Santa Barbara. Thirteen others were injured, some by gunfire and others by being hit by his vehicle. One was in serious condition at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital.
The three victims who were stabbed in the apartment of the man who unleashed a rampage in the college town of Isla Vista, California, were identified by authorities Sunday, two days after the violent spree.
The victims were identified as Cheng Yuan Hong, 20, and George Chen, 19, both of San Jose, and Weihan Wang, 20, of Fremont.
Authorities said that Hong and Chen were listed as tenants at the apartment of 22-year-old Elliot Rodger, who was suspected of causing the rampage. It was unclear if Wang was a roommate, too. All three were students at the University of California Santa Barbara.
Early today the three other shooting victims that were killed were ID’d, 22 year old Katie Cooper, 19 year old Veronika Weiss and Christopher Ross Michaels-Martinez. All 6 victims in Isla Vista murdered were UCSB students. That fact that an individual with so many mental issues and for some time was not flagged some where along the line had legally purchased guns is troubling, and personally I am as pro-Second Amendment as it gets.
Hidden in Rodger’s bedroom were three guns purchased legally from licensed dealers in Goleta, Oxnard and Burbank, authorities said. They said Rodger used the guns and his black BMW to wreak havoc across a square mile of the quiet college town — running down cyclists and skateboarders, shooting through shop windows and exchanging fire with officers.
Elliot Rodger had wrote in his 141 page manifesto the details to his deranged plans that stated, “The first people I would have to kill are my two housemates, to secure the entire apartment for myself as my personal torture and killing chamber.” The psycho then went on to write that he would lure people into the apartment and kill them before an “ultimate showdown in the streets of Isla Vista.”
Surveillance Video from Santa Barbara Deli Shows Moment Mentally Disturbed Elliot Rodger Opened Fire Gunning Down 20 Year Old UCSB Student Christopher Martinez
Surveillance video from the IV Deli Mart, one of ten locations around the University of California at Santa Barbara campus, where Elliot Rodger went on a bloody rampage, captures the very moment began shooting at innocent customers in the store. Sadly, 20 year old UCSB student Christopher Martinez was killed at the location.
The surveillance video obtained by CNN does not show the exact moment when a bullet struck the English major, ending his life, but it conveys a general sense of panic reigning inside the deli.
In the footage, several people are seen standing in line for the cash register waiting to pay for their purchases when Rodger opens fire off camera, sending bystanders diving for cover.
