SAGINAW — The case surrounding the homicide of a 32-year-old pregnant Bridgeport Township woman appears on a website featuring stories of law enforcers accused of domestic violence.
Buena Vista Township police officer Kenneth Bluew this morning was arraigned on charges relating to the murder of Jennifer M. Webb, who was eight months pregnant, on Aug. 30.
Bluew's name also is linked with Webb’s murder in “Behind The Blue Wall,” a website aimed at spotlighting domestic violence from law enforcers.
The website features media reports from unconfirmed sources who state Bluew was a suspect in Webb’s death, along with reports about the victim.
The site’s web master appeared to react to this morning’s news of charges against Bluew.
“... Everything was happening so fast and there was such a dual sense of sadness and joy to hear that he was in a cage,” one message reads. “I'm very careful about saying he DID it but now that he's arrested at least we know that the police have some evidence to back up what I'm sure most of us were already feeling pretty sure of. THANK YOU TO LAW ENFORCEMENT AND ALL OTHER OFFICES AND AGENCIES INVOLVED IN THE INVESTIGATION, DECISION TO FILE CHARGES, AND DECISION TO ARREST.”
Bluew was charged with first degree premeditated murder, felony firearm possession and intentional conduct against a pregnant individual resulting in death, miscarriage or stillbirth to a fetus or embryo.
Saginaw County Prosecutor Michael Thomas said officials determined Webb was strangled to death before police found her pregnant body near North Outer Drive, west of the Buena Vista Police Department gun range.
Thomas said Buena Vista Police Chief Brian Booker requested state police conduct the investigation when he learned one of his police officers was a suspect.
