When Will the Search for Barbara Jean Horn's Real Killer Begin?

Who killed Barbara Jean Horn?

Barbara Jean Horn was killed in 1988 in Philadelphia, and the man convicted in her murder was exonerated last year after serving 28 years behind bars. That man, Walter Ogrod, and Barbara Jean’s family now want police to look again for the killer.

He didn't do it. Who did?

We've been following this case for awhile.
Walter was released from prison one year ago.
How close are police to arresting the real killer? Find out tonight on NBC10 News at 11.
But first join us at 5pm to hear what one year of freedom has been like for Walter.

In 1988, four-year-old Barbara Jean Horn was murdered. Her body left on the side of a road in a TV box. The case was cold for four years. In 1992, Barbara's former neighbor Walter Ogrod was arrested for her murder. Police say he confessed. His first trial ended in a mistrial. The result of a second trial was guilty. Walter was sentenced to death. He's always maintained his confession was coerced. Appeal after appeal were denied. An ex*****on date was set. Flash forward to June 2020. Walter is released from prison. The current DA's investigation shows the police investigation that put Walter on death row was "botched." So, if Walter Ogrod didn't kill Barbara Jean Horn, who did? And who's looking for her killer? Thursday at 5pm and 11pm, the NBC10 Investigators take another look at the case and see how Walter has fared in his first year of freedom. Only on NBC10 Philadelphia with Claudia Vargas . Here are some shots from our interviews.

Is the Philly prison system doing enough to prevent homicides behind bars?

Inmates Murdered Inside Philly Jails Amid Staff Shortages

Is the Philly prison system doing enough to prevent homicides behind bars?

Five homicides have occurred in the city’s jails since August. There hadn’t been a killing since 2017 before this recent deadly violence. The city’s head of corrections says hundreds of officers have left since the start of the pandemic.

05/11/2021

Coming up Wednesday at 11pm on NBC10 Philadelphia, we look into the men who were beaten to death inside the city’s jails— without even a trial or conviction.

And despite federal reporting requirements, little oversight exists over what happens behind the prison walls. We raise questions of transparency and accountability with the head of Philly Prisons.

Closed Bridges, Broken Roads Cost Drivers $100s a Year in Repairs, Extra Fuel

President Biden wants to spend billions of dollars on infrastructure. The NBC10 Investigators found SE Pennsylvania needs the money for some bad bridges.

PennDOT plans to spend $7.2 billion repairing or replacing 1,460 of the Commonwealth’s deteriorating bridges. An NBC10 investigation found more than 4,200 in need of repair in the Keystone State. Faulty bridges and roads add big bucks to drivers' costs every year.

You guys should start investigating why The Edge Fitness Clubs Philadelphia has their employees lying to members to be able to steal money out of their bank accounts then refuse to refund it.
Here was the FBI game plan . When our Military people came back from overseas and were having psychological complications (PTSD) , w/ the su***de rate sky rocketing in the Military , in walks the FBI w/ a proposal . The FBI has people trained , let the FBI send their people overseas and see how they come back . Of course there will be nothing wrong w/ the FBI Agent's coming back from overseas or anywhere else for that matter BECAUSE Microwave Technology and/or Remote Neural Monitoring wasn't used on the FBI Agent's BUT it was used on America's Military men and women ... Get it ? Posted on DOJ page as a comment : Merrick Garland , did you see all the Prison's scumbag Judge Jeffrey Schmehl sent me to ? From FDC Philadelphia to Brooklyn , Manhattan , Oklahoma City , back to Philadelphia , Petersburg Virginia , Butler North Carolina , Petersburg Virginia , back to FDC Philadelphia , Brooklyn , Devans Massachusetts , Brooklyn , back to FDC Philadelphia , then what was called a trial , Brooklyn , Otisville New York , Lehigh County for a hearing , back to Otisville New York , back to Lehigh County Prison . The FBI was using our Military men and women as crash dummies for their Microwave Technology and Remote Neural Monitoring Program and scumbag Judge Jeffrey Schmehl wanted me to stay silent , when I spoke at trial scumbag Judge Jeffrey Schmehl said to me "You still didn't learn your lesson yet " . This whole situation would have never happened in Russia , it would have never gone this far because If this would have happened in Russia Vladimir Putin would have had this scumbag Judge hit . It's time our Military get's a reputation , if you let these scumbags in Federal Government use you as crash dummies and then try to cover it up ... they will keep using you as crash dummies .

NBC 10 Investigators , maybe you can help me . Ask the FBI what they have on their "Pillar" of the Community to turn him into a snitch ? Also , ask them how they can let me move in where I did knowing that these two rats are working for the FBI . 1215 N 30th St. looks like a rat fest to me .
