Invitation to Phuket to Light a Candle for Dashawn and Justice

Thursday, November 29, 2012
PHUKET: A Phuketwan reporter was at the open-air morgue in Phuket City when Dashawn Longfellow's body was transferred to a coffin for his journey home in 2010. Contemplating the young man's needless death served to remind us of the unfairness of life, and to reinforce the value of a passion for justice.

The following invitation arrived today. We wish we could be there:

Man who killed Marine to stand trial

Dashawn Longfellow of Norman was killed in Thailand on August 14, 2010. Lee Aldhouse stabbed him repeatedly in the chest while Dashawn's girlfriend looked on.

He died before ambulances could arrive. Dashawn Longfellow was a former Marine, veteran of the Iraq War, and recipient of two Purple Hearts.

On August 18, 2010, Aldhouse was arrested trying to enter back into the UK at Heathrow airport for an outstanding warrant issued for recall to prison after he fled the country while out on bail for a previous offense.

He has openly admitted to stabbing Longfellow multiple times in the chest. Authorities have the murder weapons, video footage, and an eye witness to the crime.

Aldhouse is to be extradited back to Thailand on December 1, 2012, to stand trial for the murder of Dashawn Longfellow.

Dashawn Longfellow was an American Hero and a Patriot.

He fought in Iraq to defend his country, in honor of Dashawn his family and friends will be holding a candle light vigil for him.

The candle light vigil will be held at Norman High School, on December 9, 2012, at 6pm

Family and friends will be gathering to honor Dashawn with songs, poems, and stories.

Editor Comment:

Thanks, Ted. Perhaps you should take it up with Dashawn's Marine friends and his family, who wrote what appears above. Or maybe you'd be too shy. Why don't you go back to whatever it is you do? Watch a bit more tv, build up a bit more mindless misanthropy? Anyone who said, as you once did, that you'd greet someone at the door with a baseball bat needs psychological care.

Not really interested in your apology, Ted. Too late, like a Lee Aldhouse apology.
