A BSO Crime Lab rep just told us Jim Ongley, former Director, and Randy Hilliard, former chemist, are “retired” as of last Friday.

No info on who the new boss is.  We’ll be sure to follow-up on that issue, and as to why so many drug cases are stacked up for testing.  As everyone knows, lots of folks on no bond VOP holds are being cut loose at the 40 day mark when new law drug allegations are the violation, since lots of new drug arrests in general have been delayed for case filing purposes because lab results aren’t available.  Obviously some kind of overhaul in the wake of the recent Kelli McDonald scandal is underway, so stay tuned for more info.

Lastly, thanks to “Anonymous” for posting the tip on Ongley and Hilliard under GETTING FUNCKY.  And if you also want to leave a tidbit, that’s the way to do it, since the Anonymous Tip Box stopped working years ago.
