Former Kansas AG Paul Morrison told media that based on the evidence, he wouldn’t have prosecuted the case; "Bad things happen… It doesn't necessarily mean that there's a crime involved." For those looking for what could have motivated current Attorney General, Derek Schmidt, to pursue the case in spite of weak evidence it should be noted that at the time of Caleb’s death, his father, Scott Schwab, was a member of the Kansas House of Representatives, and is currently Kansas’ Secretary of State.

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt's face should not

be punched no matter what it looks like

As for Schmidt, he might not be ready to give up on this, telling KCTV that he’ll be taking "a fresh look at the evidence… to determine the best course forward". Which probably has nothing at all to do with the Secretary of State.


While Schooley and Miles are out of the woods (unless Schmidt doubles-down), Henry has Part Two of this disaster to deal with. Look, we’re not going to say with any degree of certainty that Caleb Schwab’s heartbreaking death has had a detrimental effect on Henry’s mental and physical health, but the man has been in a death-spiral culminating in a disturbing July 2018 arrest for methamphetamine that involved a human-trafficking victim and her “manager”.


We’ll let you know how that turns out. In the meantime, we hope Henry steers clear of Kansas. Everybody should.
