Police considering ‘conspiracy’ in Cochran video case

A representative of the Madison Police Department said there are other individuals in the case that they’d like to talk to “who might have been part of a conspiracy.” At this point, police won’t comment further, citing the ongoing investigation.

Kelly’s attorney, Kevin Camp, argued that his client had cooperated with police and that a bond of $10,000 to $25,000 would be more fitting, but the city argued that the facts of the case were “very serious and grave in nature.”

When Danks told the courtroom he was leaving the bond as is, Kelly sighed audibly and hung his head for a second. He left the courtroom the same way he came in, looking to the back of the courtroom at his wife Tara.

Tara Kelly provided the Clarion-Ledger with a photo of a pass from St. Catherine’s from a Sunday. She says he was given the visitor’s pass, but it is unclear where it came from.

The pass says, “St. Catherine’s village visitor vehicle pass, Sunday.” The directions state, “Place on vehicle dashboard facing outwards. This permit authorizes the bearer to enter and park on the grounds of St. Catherine’s Village. This pass must be returned to the welcome center upon exit.”
