By itself it seems harmless enough, a man in distress calling for help. However it is the start of a very curious case. The 911 call came in at 6:35 am on Friday Oct 3rd. A canoeist in distress caused the Coast Guard and other Law enforcement agencies to leap in. Although Mr. Price had not given his exact location his phone had provided the needed coordinates.
No sign of either John Charles Price or the canoe was found. Oh, at this point I should mention that the following Monday he was due to appear in court charged with 50 counts of possessing Child . Each charge carried a maximum sentence of 5 years. If you do the math, found guilty Mr. Price was facing a serious vacation.
He was on a $255,000 bond, a bond secured by his mother using equity in her home.
Join us today to hear what is mappening in this case.
