NO SNITCHIN IN NEWTOWN. Herald Tribune, The police report that put Spann at the scene of Combs’ murder stems from the arrest of Reginald Lee Parker. Parker, 55, told three people that he witnessed the fatal shooting of Combs by 3 Newtown thugs, who he knew and named two of them. His firsthand account was corroborated by another witness, a woman who also heard the gunshot and saw men running from the area. Parker was arrested Nov. 7 on an unrelated warrant for failure to appear in court and interviewed by detectives in jail. But according to the report, he changed his account once inside the county jail. When pressed by detectives, Parker denied telling anyone he saw Combs’ death. After he recanted, detectives brought the three people Parker spoke to about the killing into the jail, to confront him in person about his statements. Parker, again, denied witnessing the death. He has been charged with being an accessory to murder for allegedly impeding the investigation of the armed robbery and killing. Parker’s arrest report is the first of any official documents that indicate Spann witnessed the still unsolved death. The names of the 2 thugs that Parker ID in the shooting of Combs are in the SPD probable cause report.

Sarasota Police say that, with the assistance of the U.S. Marshals Service, they located and arrested Olajuwan Butler. Detectives believe that Butler is the gunman who shot Sarasota resident Hakeem Murray, 20, in the 1900 block of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Way at about 1 a.m. on Oct. 1. Olajuwan Butler is the brother of Willie ”Pooh” Hadley who was shot dead on the mean streets of Newtown in June of 2011, payback time for Olajuwan Butler. Friday, August 19, 2011 SARASOTA HERALD TRIBUNE – Sarasota Police are seeking the public’s help as they try to solve the shooting death of another young man on the streets of Newtown. Detectives identified the victim, who was shot dead at 29th Street and Goodrich Avenue late Wednesday, as Timothy Rainey, 18, a lifetime resident of Sarasota. The dead man,Timothy Rainey, 18, has had past brushes with the law himself (drug charges) He was arrested at least twice in Sarasota County, according to jail records, for possession of cocaine with intent to sell, possession of cocaine and three probation violations. Court records do not show any prosecutions in adult court, however, and Rainey’s last arrest appears to have been in January for violation of probation. The disposition of those criminal cases was not immediately available. So far, five homicides have occurred this year in Newtown, young people frequently roam the streets of Newtown late at night, police and residents say. The neighborhood where Rainey was shot is not far from where, on April 16 at about 3 a.m., two British tourists – James Cooper, 25, and James Kouzaris, 24 – were shot in the 1700 block of Carver Court.
EXPRESS UK Saturday April 23rd, 2011, In Newtown there is a no snitching rule, Bill Warner Sarasota private investigator. Sarasota, it’s an easy-going place where visitors and locals mingle in the cluster of bars and restaurants after lazy days spent basking on the city’s 35 miles of white Gulf Coast beaches. Above all it’s a safe district where the most police have to deal with is the occasional outbreak of rowdiness, fueled by a few too many beers combined with the region’s legendary all-year-round sunshine. Head directly north through Sarasota’s grid-patterned streets, however, and the atmosphere changes for the worse. After a mile and- a-half you’ll reach Newtown. It’s a neighborhood that is never mentioned in the glossy tourist brochures that lure 41,000 Britons to Sarasota every year. By day the atmosphere is unwelcoming, at night it’s downright dangerous and considered a no-go area for outsiders. In 2010 Newtown accounted for 43 per cent of Sarasota’s armed robberies and 83 per cent of its murders. In these streets university pals Mr Cooper, 25, and Mr Kouzaris, 24, were gunned down after straying into the crime ridden public housing project. Apparently victims of a robbery, they died in a hail of bullets as they fled for their lives in the early hours of Saturday. Shawn Tyson, a dysfunctional teenager who reportedly has the street nickname Young Savage tattooed across his chest, has been convicted with the killing of the two Britons. Liz Clare, who dated James Kouzaris for three years, says: “I just can’t understand why they were there. They’re not stupid. I was with James for three years and he was so cautious. We used to call him grandad because he was so careful. My biggest fear is what people might think about why they were in a dodgy area. The latest explanation is that, under the influence of drink, they simply wandered away from the safety of Main Street in search of a late night takeaway and became lost. Stumbling into the Courts, a public housing project, they became prey for an opportunist robber. Yet, as the former girlfriend states, Cooper and Kouzaris were not naive young men. Both had traveled extensively and were sufficiently street-wise to sense they were entering a dangerous area. Newtown is a district that one man in Sarasota knows better than most. Bill Warner is a veteran private investigator who has called this area his patch for almost 20 years. “It’s horrible,” he says. “At any time of day there are drug deals being done and guys acting as spotters on the look out for police. There is a lot of crime and it’s not a nice place to be. You don’t go there at night, period. If I have to do surveillance work in Newtown I always carry a weapon.”
