A former Oak Grove police officer could serve three years in prison for tampering with evidence in an unsolved murder case nearly 20 years ago.

Leslie Duncan pled guilty Monday. Duncan’s arrest is the first in the unsolved case. He was one of the first officers on the scene and the lead investigator in the slayings of Gloria Ross and Candida Belt. They were shot and stabbed at a massage parlor that was later exposed as a front for a prostitution business. Commonwealth attorney Lynn Pryor says Duncan’s formal sentencing is Nov. 5.

Whitney grew up listening to Car Talk to and from her family’s beach vacation each year, but it wasn’t until a friend introduced her to This American Life that radio really grabbed her attention. She is a recent graduate from Union University in Jackson, Tenn., where she studied journalism. When she’s not at WKMS, you can find her working on her backyard compost pile and garden, getting lost on her bicycle or crocheting one massive blanket.
