Jessica Ridgeway: Ari Liggett not a suspect; His body parts were his Mom’s, not Jessica’s
I’m not quite sure what it means about our society when a guy is pulled over with his Mother’s body parts in the trunk and it goes under the radar, because DNA indicates he didn’t dismember 10-year-old Jessica Ridgeway. But I’m sure it means something.
Gather points out the revelation suggests they may have DNA evidence to go on in the Ridgeway murder case.
Jessica Ridgeway wasn’t kidnapped and murdered by Ari Liggett, the man caught driving around with his mother’s body parts in the backseat. In fact, police acknowledge that DNA clears Ari of any involvement with the murder of the 10-year-old Westminster girl. So that must mean they have some kind of DNA to compare to, right?
In any event, while a bit angry over not making it into his Mother’s will, the seriously disturbed Ligget does seem to have a thing for cleanliness. So, he has that much working for him, I guess. Geesh!
The man who was arrested Wednesday after police found the dismembered remains of his mother in the back seat of his car says he recently learned that he was not in his mothers will, according to the Associated Press. Ari Liggett, 24, is being held without bond on suspicion of the first degree murder of Beverly Liggett, 56. He was arrested near his home after crashing his car in an attempt to elude police, CBS Denver reports.
Liggett originally told the interviewing officers he had found his mother dead in the living room after she committed suicide. A search in the family’s home uncovered a saw in the dishwasher and potassium cyanide and traces of blood in the freezer and bathrub, according to court records.
