Local angle

Hooo boy. Shazam. Zut alors. Our attention is drawn to a crime story in the NW version of the Democrat-Gazette that didn't make the Little Rock paper. It's about the stabbing death of a Mountain Home doctor, Dr. David Millstein. It's a mysterious death any way you slice it. But we note this piece of victim biographical info in the middle of the story:

He was married to Lois Parks, who lives in the Little Rock area, Manuel said. The marriage was Millstein’s second; he was divorced from his first wife, Manuel said.

Lois Parks is the widow of Luther Gerald “Jerry” Parks Jr., whose Sept. 26, 1993, shooting death west of Little Rock remains unsolved. Jerry Parks, 47, was driving home after dinner to Roland in rural Pulaski County when he was shot by someone who pulled alongside him at Chenal Parkway and Arkansas 10, police said.

Jerry Parks was shot twice in the chest and once in the abdomen, police said.

Detectives reported finding more than 10 shell casings at the scene.

Jerry Parks was an owner of American Contract Services, one of whose subsidiaries, American Janitorial Services, provided janitors for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign headquarters and transition team offices in Little Rock.

This simple recitation doesn't quite do the Parks' death justice. Clinton conspiracy buffs will recall that the death of Jerry Parks was one of dozens, maybe hundreds, blamed on Bill Clinton and his putative henchmen by a variety of wackjob political opponents. (The unifying theory being that all the dead people knew too much about Godfather Bill.) Parks' death figured prominently in the "Clinton Chronicles," a discredited video hit on Clinton by Jerry Falwell. LR police will be watching this case develop, we presume.
