This weekend's St. Albans Messenger also carried the following article by Leon Thompson:

Sheldon murder remains unsolved

Family, friends want justice for Kenny Jerome

By LEON THOMPSON Messenger Staff Writer

SHELDON — Every day, Terry and Joanne Magnan wake here and work on the very property where someone shot and killed one of their best friends.

And they can't escape the memory, because they own the land.

The Magnans, who run Diamond Hill Custom Heifers Farm in Sheldon, want closure in the homicide case of Kenny Jerome, who died while working at their farm on July 7, 2005. He was 33.

Two years later, police have made no arrests. There are no named suspects. The case is still open.

"It's been very quiet." Joanne said Thursday.

On Saturday, the Magnans will visit Jerome's grave, but there will not be a full-fledged vigil, as there was last year.

The Magnans are still offering a $9,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of anyone responsible for Jerome's death.

"We have to go out and look at that spot every day," Joanne said. "It'd be nice to get some closure and put this to rest."

Jerome's killer fired a single shot from a .22-caliber rifle, about 80 yards from where he fed cattle at Diamond Hill. The bullet struck him in the chest.

The bullet traveled from a rock ledge owned by the Magnans' neighbor. Stephen Harrness.

During an interview last summer, Terry Magnan said the assassin "was either someone hired professionally, or a really good shot," given that Jerome died from a single shot from such a long distance. With a 22.

Jerome and his girlfriend, Jennifer Miller - also the mother of Jerome's daughter, Kaitlyn - had a heated history with Harrness and his sons, Dennis and Thomas. Miller, Dennis' ex-wife, helped the state eventually convict him of arson-related charges.

Miller claimed the Harrnesses plotted for years to burn their own property and collect insurance money. Thomas was eventually convicted of threatening another key witness.

After Jerome's death, the VSP seized Dennis Harrness' truck, and then returned it to him.

Joanne Magnan talks monthly to Jerome's mother, Lois, who told the Messenger last year she had no idea her late son feuded with the Harrnesses.

"You don't lose your kids," Lois said then. "Your kids don't die ahead of you. It's not natural. And now Kaitlyn won't know her father. That was the one big thing in his life - that baby."

Lois sees Kaitlyn regularly but still wonders: Who would kill her son? And why?

"She's doing all right," Joanne said of Lois. "Like the rest of us, she wants closure, too."
