Accused Shooter's Wife Blames West Memphis Police For Husband's Death

Donna Lee Wray says her husband, Jerry Kane, is the real victim in the shooting in West Memphis.
WEST MEMPHIS, AR - No one at the West Memphis Police Department is responding to a seven page statement released by the wife of accused cop killer Jerry Kane. Donna Lee Wray blames the police for what happened and wants the dash cam video from the incident released.

Thursday, May 20, Sergeant Brandon Paudert and Officer Bill Evans were gunned down during a traffic stop of Jerry Kane and his teen son Joe Kane. Investigators say Joe Kane killed the officers. Both Kanes were shot and killed a short time later during a gun battle in a nearby Walmart parking lot. The Crittenden County Sheriff and his chief deputy were injured during the shootout.

Friends and family want to know more about the final hours of the Jerry and Joe Kane's lives and what really happened with police.

Family friend Emilia Vinokur has a hard time believing Jerry Kane would be involved with a police shooting.  “This is not a person to kill someone without reason. He is not the type,” Vinokur said.

In the statement, released a week after the shootings, Wray says this is all a cover up and the Kanes are the victims.

No one from the Arkansas State Police will say when the investigation will be complete or release any details about it. Jerry and Joe Kane's bodies are expected to be cremated in Arkansas and the remains will be sent to family members in Ohio.
