Links provided for top Turner Report/Inside Joplin posts for the week
Courtroom developments concerning the accused killer of three-year-old Jayda Kyle have captured the attention of Turner Report readers with both this week's posts and ones dating back to December accounting for six of the top 10 posts, while other posts on the topic including the most visited Turner Report post of all time, concerning Children's Division documents that alleged Jayda Kyle's grandfather interfered with the murder investigation barely missed the top 10. That post has drawn more than 80,000 visitors.
Three of the other four top 10 slots this week concerned City Manager Sam Anselm's order to drop the Joplin Police Department incident spotlights as they were being done and their restoration, albeit in a much blander version toward the end of the week.
Meanwhile, five of the top 10 Inside Joplin posts concerned the snowfall that affected the entire area, with area school closings placing second, third, fourth and sixth and the Joplin Police Department's decision to initiate emergency road conditions coming in seventh.
The top Turner Report story and the only one that was not about the incident spotlights or the Jayda Kyle murder was a post on a Newton County deputy facing felony child abuse charges. That post is now the sixth most visited in the blog's 14-year history.

Guys, I am knocking myself out providing a news service that continually provides investigative reporting, is willing to offend the powers that be when it is necessary, has provided more than 6,000 free obituaries and offers regular records material that, for the most part, cannot be found anywhere else.
The Turner Report, Inside Joplin, Inside Joplin Obituaries and Inside Springfield now average close to 35,000 readers a day.
If even half of those people were to send as little as $5, it would help me keep this operation going without having to struggle as much to do it. It would also enable me to make some improvements that would add even more to what I have been doing with this news operation.
Only a small number of people, deeply appreciated I assure you, have subscribed or contributed.
This is not a hobby for me, though I am doing something I have always loved doing. This is the way i make my living.
