A co-worker has confessed to shooting and killing the executive director of a Philadelphia nonprofit while she waited for her morning bus. The alleged motive for the February murder: That morning, the director, Kim Jones, was planning to alert Department of Human Services authorities that Randolph Sanders had misappropriated funds from Turning Points for Children, which provides services to Philadelphia foster children.
Police say Sanders dressed in disguise, walked up behind Jones at the bus stop and shot her in the head. He later confessed to the murder and theft.
Jones had accused Sanders of mismanaging funds and possibly stealing thousands of dollars from the nonprofit.
Note: When potential illegal financial irregularities are discovered, it may be prudent to involve law enforcement officials sooner rather than later. Consult with your attorney when developing.
