Police Officer Indicted on First Degree Murder Charge for Killing a Couple’s 2-year-old Son


Claire Bernish | The Free Thought Project

Rock Springs, WY- Jacob Rollen Anglesey has now been indicted by a grand jury for first-degree murder in the 2009 death of a two-year-old child — and new information revealed he’s a cop.

On March 9, 2009, emergency services were summoned to help with the boy, Konnor Allen, whom Anglesey claimed had become unresponsive after suffering a fall.

Konnor, who had been in Anglesey’s care, succumbed to the head trauma and died the following day. Konnor was the son of Phylicia Rasdall and Robert Corry Allen.

No charges were filed at the time of the incident.

According to the Rocket-Miner, 

At the time, Green River Police Department (GRPD) placed Anglesey on paid administrative leave and contacted the Sweetwater County Attorney’s Office to request an independent investigation. That investigation was conducted by the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation. Former Sweetwater County Attorney Brett Johnson requested a special prosecutor, which was approved by the Sweetwater County Commission on March 12, 2009.

After a review of the DCI investigation, the special prosecutor declined to initiate charges at that time. The case remained open with Wyoming DCI.

Then in 2015, agents with the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation presented evidence to the Sweetwater County Attorney’s Office, which reportedly evidenced inconsistencies with Anglesey’s account of events, and included “medical reports stating the injuries were caused by non-accidental trauma,” according to the Associated Press.

K2 Radio News correspondent Tracie Perkins then “discovered information not released in the indictment,” but with serious implications, “namely, that Anglesey is an officer in the Green River Police Department.

Why that information has not been previously released, whether or not the grand jury was privy to it at the time of indictment, and whether or not the Green River Police Department was aware of the investigation — while allowing Anglesey to remain on the job for its duration — remain unclear.

According to the Rock Springs, Wyoming, Rocket-Miner, Anglesey is being held on a $1 million bond. The State of Wyoming retains a death penalty option in cases of murder.

    Took 7 years but at least they got him. I’m proud of LEO’s who do their jobs with the correct passion. The exact opposite could be said for the handling of my hit and run case by the ST. Petersburg Police Dept. They refused to go check surveillance cameras in the area 7 in just the first two blocks which brings you to Downtown and dozens more. WHY?? Why would they not contact Ford Motor Co. to see if a VIN# could be obtained from the evidence I collected at the CRIME scene? WHY?? Please feel free to call ask them why they would allow that CRIMMINAL to still be on the streets 727 893 7596
