Judge To Rule On Suppression In Murder Case After Extensive Hearing

Detectives involved in the murder investigation of Vincent Goslyn on Fidelio Road testified in an evidentiary hearing Thursday morning in Christian Circuit Court. Attorneys for the accused Jarred Long and Jessie Goslyn filed a motion to suppress evidence found in Long's truck after he was arrested. A interrogation of Goslyn implicating Long was deemed inadmissible earlier this year. That interrogation was the basis of multiple search warrants of Long's home and truck.

Commonwealth's Attorney Lynn Pryor questioned detectives Ed Stokes and Kacy Greene with the Christian County Sheriff's Department about what evidence they had linking Long to the murder before the now suppressed interrogation of Jessie Goslyn. Detective Greene recounted the story a witness told him the day after the murder.

Both Stokes and Greene testified that the witness’ spoken and written description of the color of the truck varied from light colored to white or white looking with or without a 4 by 4 sticker. Long's attorney, Mark Bryant, pressed the issue that Long's truck is silver with no sticker and not white with a sticker.

Bryant and the other attorneys attempted to show that the reasoning for searching Long's truck came solely from the interview with Jessie Goslyn.

Circuit Judge Andrew Self questioned the law as it applies to search warrants and probable cause.

Both Pryor and the defense attorneys will prepare briefs to submit to Judge Self on December 13th. Jessie Goslyn and Long are accused of murdering Vincent Goslyn in February of 2012.
