Graham was indicted for two counts of first-degree murder for the deaths of 36-year-old Robert Meireis and 34-year-old Elizabeth Tonsmeire in 2015.
“I mean, it is a case that we would like to see resolved, to give people, you know, peace of mind about their town. Again, we can’t say too much because it is an active investigation, but a lot of work has gone into it,” said Lt. David Campbell.
Robert Meireis had a tough life that included a history of violence, years in prison, even tattoos tying him to white supremacist groups. That he met a violent end in a double murder discovered last month in West Juneau wasn’t necessarily a surprise to some people who knew him.
By withholding that information, the department can evaluate the credibility of tipsters. Discrepancies are bad, corroboration is good.
