Liberal Criminal Laws Helped To Get Memphis, Tennessee Jogger Eliza Fletcher Abducted and Killed

A body found this week in Memphis is that of a teacher who was abducted there while jogging last week, and a suspect is being charged with murder, police said Tuesday. Eliza “Liza” Fletcher, 34, was identified as the person found dead Monday in the rear of a vacant duplex in the Tennessee city, roughly 7.5 miles from where surveillance video shows she was forced into an SUV early Friday, Memphis police said. A suspect arrested over the weekend, Cleotha Abston, 38, will be arraigned Wednesday on charges including first-degree murder — adding to kidnapping and other charges he already faced, Shelby County District Attorney Steve Mulroy said.
