In secret, behind locked gates, our Nation's Oldest City dumped a landfill in a lake (Old City Reservoir), while emitting sewage in our rivers and salt marsh. Organized citizens exposed and defeated pollution, racism and cronyism. We elected a new Mayor. We're transforming our City -- advanced citizenship. Ask questions. Make disclosures. Demand answers. Be involved. Expect democracy. Report and expose corruption. Smile! Help enact a St. Augustine National Park and Seashore. We shall overcome!

UCLA Forensic Psychiatrist Calls Out Deputy Jeremy Banks for Murder of Michelle O'Connell (Historic City News)
Forensic psychiatrist calls Jeremy Banks trigger man in murder
In the nationally syndicated radio program “Dr. Carole’s Couch”, heard worldwide on VoiceAmerica Internet Talk Radio, Board Certified Psychiatrist Carole Lieberman, MD, MPH, looks at the evidence collected in the death of Michelle O’Connell and offers her forensic timeline based on a review of the 9-1-1 call from Deputy Jeremy Banks, crime scene photographs, an investigator’s report, and a review of the PBS FRONTLINE episode chronicling the case.
Dr. Carole, a member of the Clinical Faculty of UCLA and recognized as a California Medical Board Expert, has been a consultant to Congress and media, and has testified in numerous high profile cases including the Terri Schiavo appeal in Florida, the domestic violence case; Nevada v. Floyd Mayweather, and the Jenny Jones Talk Show Murder Trial; People v. Jonathan Schmitz.
“A big cover up is happening,” Dr. Lieberman says in her January 10th broadcast. “For all of these years, the St Augustine Florida sheriff’s department has been covering up the fact that it was one of their deputies, Jeremy Banks, who actually murdered her.“
In this week’s program, January 17th, Dr. Carole includes Patty O’Connell (Michelle’s mother), former deputy sheriff Debra Maynard (who responded to the crime scene on September 2, 2010) and Florida Licensed Private Investigator Clu Wright, who has been digging through mountains of records obtained during his pro bono research into the death of 24-year-old Michelle O’Connell.
While Jeremy Banks reported the supposed suicide of his live-in girlfriend and then sat idly by in the bathroom doorway, holding a telephone instead of administering lifesaving CPR, Michelle was still breathing, according to Debra Maynard who says she was terminated after she refused to change her account of the events she witnessed at the crime scene.
