LaFayette police Sgt. Sam Parker fired
The LaFayette Police Department is planning a news conference at 2 p.m. today. Check catoosanews.com for an update on this story.
Sam Parker, the LaFayette police sergeant and a “person of interest” in the case of his missing wife and 911 dispatcher Theresa Parker, has been fired.
“Effective today, April 13, 2007, Sgt. Sam Parker’s status with the LaFayette Police Department has been changed from suspended without pay to terminated,” LaFayette Public Safety Director Tommy Freeman said in a prepared statement. “After an internal investigation, it was found that Parker had violated several city policies that led to my recommendation to the city manager (Johnnie Arnold) that he be terminated.
“His termination is in no way connected to the Theresa Parker investigation,” he said.
Parker has been with the LaFayette Police Department for 20 years.
Something is going on right now with Parker. Hubby was just flipping channels, and the news said something about him being holed up at his house. LE has his street blocked off - That's all I heard - this is getting interesting...

10-1 the current police activity at Parkers home has more to do with the C-4 than it does with his wifes disappearance. If I ever decide to off someone, and do a decent enough job of covering it up, I'll have to remember to stash my explosives, weed, un-taxed liquor and cigarettes, and laptop away at a friends house for safe-keeping before Johnny Law shows up, warrant in hand. I think I'll write that down.
Fired officer Parker attempts to harm self By Chloé Morrison Staff Writer
LaFAYETTE, Ga. — Police were called to the home of the estranged husband of a missing 911 dispatcher Friday night after receiving a report that he was trying to harm himself, authorities said Saturday.
Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson said officers responded to a 911 call from “a friend” of Sam Parker at about 8:30 p.m. Friday.
Mr. Parker, who was fired from the LaFayette Police Department on Friday for having explosives stored in his locker at the police station, has been identified as a “person of interest” in the investigation into the disappearance of his wife, Theresa Parker, who has been missing for 25 days.
“We evaluated the call and evaluated the home (on Cordell Avenue in LaFayette), and I decided to have his sister summoned to the house,” Sheriff Wilson said.
