Former Reserve Officer Raymond McCann Person of Interest in Death of 11-year-old

FOX 17 obtained the probable cause affidavit in the case of Raymond McCann, a former Constantine reserve officer, who is now being called a person of interest in connection to the killing of 11-year-old Jodi Parrack, a cold case from 2007.

On November 8, 2007, Parrack’s body was found in the Constantine Township Cemetery after she disappeared while walking home from a friend’s house a few blocks away.

McCann was arrested over the weekend and charged with perjury in connection to the case.

According to a four-page affidavit, over the course of an hour and a half, McCann suggested officers search the Constantine Township Cemetery where Parrack’s body was eventually found. Officers became increasingly suspicious because McCann, himself, did not take it upon himself to search the area.

“Furthermore, I am aware that the victim’s body contained injuries to both of her wrists, consistent with the application of handcuffs. Given the fact the McCann was a reserve police office at the time of this incident, he would have access to handcuffs,” stated the affidavit.
