The State of Tennessee on Aug. 14 will prosecute former Putnam County Assessor of Property Byron Looper for the murder of Sen. Tommy Burks, against whom Looper was running in 1998. There are many questions about the murder, investigation and evidence in the case District Attorney General Bill Gibson is building against Looper. The potential jury pool has been bombarded with negative stories run in the Herald-Citizen, which carries a standing logo, "The trials of Byron Looper." The newspaper has done absolutely no independent investigation, but carries verbatim comments by the prosecutor. Here is a link to a page with stories from The Tennessean about the Looper case.
