Joe Oliver of St. Philips was taken into custody on Jan.12,2007. He is charged with two counts of second degree murder. At one point I think he was released on bail but it was revoked so I am not sure if he is still in custody today.

So far Des I have been unable to find anything on that other than the fact that he was a suspect at the time that Joe Oliver was charged. Don't know if they still consider him to be or not.

A newfoundland newspaper, the independant published a series of interviews done with the accused Joe Oliver. That newspaper has apparently folded and the links to the articles are now missing. Oliver claimed that there was something really strange going on but that he wasn't going to take the blame for what he had witnessed Murin do. A copy of those interviews are still available at mindytran.com/updates.htm  (http://mindytran.com/updates.htm)

Note the difference in the legal assistance offered to Shannon Murrin for Mindy Tran's murder compared to that offered Joe Oliver for the Worthman Murder.

Very sad that this young couple were murdered. I do not know what the motive was, but possibly it was drug related. It is sad that they had to be in contact with such violent individuals and their lives taken at such an early age. I send my condolences and prayers to the families, which at least now they have been laid to rest and they can visit the graveside if nothing else. I don't know if this case has come to trial yet, but will keep watch for any news on it.  ??? ??? ??? ??? ???

So proud again this year just watching our justice system in action, the best in the world aye?

Quote
A lengthy preliminary trial continues on in virtual secrecy under a media blackout in the province of Newfoundland. On trial is Joe Oliver, the man who went to the police with evidence of a long cold double murder. After leading investigators to the bodies, the murder weapon, and providing a witness statement to the police in which he identified Shannon Murrin as the killer, he is now on trial for the murders himself. Some may ask why a person who had supposedly gotten away with murder for so long would then turn himself in so many years later, some may ask why Shannon Murrin was not at least charged as a co-conspirator, but all is not that simple.

This case... the cover-up ..stinks to the high heavens --- all the way from one end of the country to the other.  ... the most corrupt... the most dangerous of law enforcement officials all involved in the Shannon Murrin crimes.  It stinks from BC to NFLD !...and all the provinces in between are just as contaminated...do doubt.

I don't know about you D1...but I've been thinking while I sit here realizing that Brian "Linganer" MacKinnon is the Shannon Murrin of New Waterford; and most of all, I can't help but wonder what becomes of those "protected informants"  or what we know as "rats who have murdered"????  When the cops get through using them (if the dealers don't catch on and kill them first) wouldn't they be just as likely to be found dead.... to shut them up for good???   oh wait! what am I saying? the ones we've read about and/or written about usually end up being found dead (robbery gone bad, drug overdose, whatever fits them best) ---- so I'm sure a lot of people will be glad when these protected criminal rats have become no longer useful.... can't happen soon enough.

The problem with running even one rat like this through the sytem is that this breeds more of the same. Once the corrupt rat handling department gains a foothold; it forces all the cops, the politicians, lawyers and judges to cover for them. The same system then protects all the new rats and covers up a multitude of additional crimes afterwards. Allowing just one rat to get away with murdering children will guarantee more of the same. Unless the law that authorized the precedent setting coverup for mindy tran's murder is changed, it's now officially legal for agents of our police to murder our children, it's just illegal for you to know!

Wow! The man charged with these murders has named the real shooter in open court. He says Shannon Murrin, the man previously acquitted of the murder of 8 yr. old Mindy Tran pulled the trigger.

"I have a lot of friends" Murrin says in a tv interview in which he also claims Joe Oliver is in store for a lot of surprises..

A sentence of 11 years is certainly not any time for taking two people's lives. I believe Oliver should get at least 20 years, ten years for each life. Because when you think of it, he took the lives of two very young individuals and it just isn't fair that he will be out and living his life. Mr. Murrin, indicating there were a lot of surprises for Oliver, well I guess he would know. A scary situation which ever way you look at it. I still think he should have gotten 20 years. I take it the sentence is to be handed down later in the week, I am not sure after watching the interview. 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)

There is little sympathy for Oliver for the role he played in these murders. He would be damned if he talked and damned if he didn't. There was no motive for him to show the police where the bodies were if he had done the murders by himself. This would have been left sitting in the files as a cold case and none the wiser. If Oliver were just wanting to shirk the blame for what he had done, I doubt he would have implicated himself to the degree that he did. If he were just making up a story to blame Shannon Murrin, he could have constructed one that minimized his involvement.

But then, this isn't just anybody that he was implicating, this is the guy the police let get away with murdering little kids, a crime that Murrin is now on the way to being paid off for with this last hurdle cleared. What happened to the drug charges he was up on?

A news report says Murrin is suing in this case as well as the Tran case.

Murrin is constantly implicated but never convicted of crimes such as this.

The new law suit:

Shannon Murrin threatens to sue police, justice officials
Last Updated: Monday, January 4, 2010 | 8:27 PM NT Comments20Recommend9CBC News
Shannon Murrin says he will use some of the money he was awarded in an out-of-court settlement with the RCMP to take legal action against another police agency, the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary.

Murrin recently settled a lawsuit in British Columbia in which he claimed a former RCMP officer had him beaten to get a murder confession out of him in connection with the death of Mindy Tran.

Murrin lived near the eight-year-old in Kelowna, B.C., when she was slain in the mid-1990s. Murrin was charged in 2000 with murder and acquitted.

His lawsuit against a former RCMP sergeant investigating the Tran case was based on a beating he suffered in 1995 that put him in hospital for 11 days.

Murrin told CBC News on the weekend that as part of the settlement of the lawsuit, he can't say how much money he was awarded. But he said he will use some of it to sue justice and police officials in Newfoundland and Labrador over their alleged handling of a double slaying outside St. John's.

In late May 2009, Murrin was named as a suspect in the slayings when the Newfoundland Supreme Court accepted an agreed statement of facts in the case against Joey Oliver. Oliver had pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the 1993 deaths of Dale Worthman and Kim Lockyer and was sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Oliver claimed he drove the couple to a remote wooded area on the outskirts of the city but he said Murrin shot them to death. Their bodies were found in the woods at the edge of St. John's three years ago.

In the statement of facts, Crown prosecutors Jim Walsh and Elaine Reid said Oliver's claim that Murrin was the shooter is uncorroborated. The police never charged him in the deaths of Worthman and Lockyer, and Murrin dismisses the allegation.

"How come I'm out here walking around, if they could prove anything that he said?" he asked in an interview with CBC News.

Murrin said he wants to sue the provincial police force and lawyers on both sides of the St. John's case for letting him be named in the statement of facts as an accused killer.

The police paid a $50,000 reward in the Oliver case, but they won't say who received the money.

what in God's name do the authorities expect the public to swallow?  We all know these murders actually took place..... someone did them..... Murrin is attached to all.  If they consistently find him not guilty of them and reward him over an over, we are only left to believe that "one or more police" are the actual sick killers and Murrin is just a paid puppet.

What is going on is so unbelievable that most people will have to look for another explanation rather than accept we have a government sanctioned killer on our hands! Sure the police can't find anything to convict him on, they don't allow the evidence or the witnesses to make it to court!
