BREAKING SILENCE

LAW OFFICE FIRE-UpDate

Ranch Matters (RM) has published several stories regarding the May 25, 2019, arson fire that seriously damaged the law firm offices of Madras attorneys Glenn, Reeder & Gassner.

On May 28, 2020, we published a story titled: “Does the road LEAD to Antelope?” where we reported following up on some leads in the Antelope area that included the execution of a sealed search warrant.

As reported, Troy Ernest Patrick, of Antelope Oregon was Indicted on “2 counts of arson 1” for the law office fire by the Jefferson County Grand Jury on February 25, 2021.

The Indictment like the search warrant has been sealed.

Patrick was released from custody via a CONDITIONAL/THIRD PARTY RELEASE AGREEMENT on April 5, 2022.

The Release Agreement requires Mr. Patrick’s sister, Peggy Sue Tucker of Antelope to supervise Patrick’s compliance pending trial.

Patrick’s trial has been postponed until April of 2023.

Patrick as been less than cooperative with the authorities and his own defense lawyer. Additionally he has refused media requests for an interview until now.

FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE HIS ARREST PATRICK BREAKS HIS SILENCE & TALKS EXCLUSIVELY WITH RM

From the very beginning, this case has been a “Riddle Wrapped in a Mystery Inside an Enigma”.

There’s been some interesting, possibly troubling developments and RM recently reached out to Jefferson County District Attorney Steven Leriche for a comment. He hasn’t responded.

CHECK BACK for a series of in-depth reports in early 2023.
