Police desperate to find weapon & clothing, now building case out of money

Police are begging for help to locate the clothing and the weapon used in the killing of a Greensburg man.

Clifton Cook charged with the killing of Gary Brown earlier this month is believed to have disposed of the items. So if you bought it, or you are hiding them, you better turn them in cause they really want them bad.

Without a weapon the financial records for Cook have been requested by Judge Heimann to be handed over to county prosecutors. Since Amber is the only eye witness some believe they are going to be a waste of time, but police are hoping to show Clifton had some type of premeditation to murder so they can win a conviction of murder without evidence.

Clifton has been labeled a killer, and has been known for being a jealous man, making some think he seeked vengeance out on Gary Brown who was having fun in the bed with Cooks ex-girlfriend Amber.

Amber works or did work at Tipton Lakes dentistry. (not important)

Because of a police affidavit produced from Amber's statement; claiming a scuffle took place with Brown and Cook before the shooting happened. Police photographed Cooks entire body looking for battle wounds, instead of searching out the truth from Amber.

Columbus Police are working hard to bring a case against Clifton, but doubts a small town battalion can handle the work. Crime scene contamination during the crucial hours after the crime has many thinking the case was over before it began. Time will tell how CPD will do in this case.

Did I read that Clifton Cook had an alibi and how come the police aren't looking there for the gun and clothes ?

He alleged that he was with someone, however when the woman whom he was using as an alibi was questioned she stated that he left her home at 1:00 am and returned at 6:00 am. She also stated he had been drinking heavily. Though I am in NO way a C. Cook advocate here is something to take into consideration. Did Amber know her new man was a violent sexual predator? Did Clifton learn this and fear for her safety? Now...I am guessing but the charge of murder may have more to do with preventing him from having an ability to post bond than it has to do with an ability to make that charge stick. This seems more like a Voluntary Manslaughter case.

So did this woman say she was with him before and after or that she didn't know where or when he got back?
