Could TV detective Columbo solve this logjam?

It was April 2011 that warrants were issued for the arrest of the following people from Montgomery County Pennsylvania District Attorney.

Darlene M. Zachry a/k/a/ Zachery,  widow of Raymond Marc Zachry, has 51 charges on her court record for forgery, perjury, fraud and conspiracy, and insurance fraud.

Sister of the widow Zachry, Annetta Frackman, has 18 similar charges.

William “Bill” Werneke and wife, Lisa Werneke have eight charges, due to their participation in the forgery and fraud of the document the group referred to as a will.  All are charged with conspiracy.

Since their arrest in early May 2011, there has been multiple delays in scheduling a hearing on the criminal charges.  Pre-trial conferences are scheduled and rescheduled regularly.

The latest developments in the case is a consolidation  of  the four cases and another  reschedule of  the pre-trial conference for April 23, 2012.

As someone commented recently, “It doesn’t take Dick Tracy to hold a hearing on these charges when all of the participants have confessions in the court files”.

Columbo, Peter Faulk who died last June at age 83  could have this case wrapped up with his lendary “Just one more thing”.

Not only was Montgomery County Pennsylvania District Attorney lax in the investigation of the crimes, now they are equally lax in the prosecution.

  2. I am not real wonderful with English but I line up this real easy to translate.



  3. It always seems like in order to get justice there is always a fight, it has been one hurdle after the next. We certainly have to say this group is probably guilty of a whole lot more than the fraud charges. As the saying goes, where there’s smoke, there’s fire. I only hope, Shirley, you prevail so the group doesn’t have the opportunity to damage someone else.
    I said all along there is someone out there who will be able to help you.
    Keep up the fight. I am confident you absolutely will prevail.
    God bless you

    Dick Tracy and Columbo could have completed this faster and they are both dead.



  5. Perhaps the answer is in a news story from February 2006 “Attorney General Corbett announces the formation of a Public Corruption Unit. The unit is de ssigned to primarily combat corruption through the prosecution of elected officials and government employees”.

    Perhaps they should have a look into this investigation.

    Seems like no one in PA wants to step up and take responsibility for – A) the botched original autopsy / handling of the body immediately following death B) accepting the confessions and not following up right away with prosecution and C) all these delays. What justice is there in continued delays? Does the court system or do the criminals think this will just all go away if it is just delayed long enough? What needs to be done to get this case heard? Someone somewhere has that answer. Evidently the criminals have found someone that will continue to delay so there has to be someone else that can say NO MORE DELAYS.
