A sheriff in Louisiana is defending the investigation of a man who fatally shot C-F-L player Joe McKnight during a road rage dispute. The shooter was taken into custody, questioned and released after the killing last Thursday. Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand drew heated criticism for allowing Ronald Gasser's release. Normand thanked McKnight's family for their patience and said his department has been unfairly criticized. ("..I don't care.") (SOURCE:ABC)

TAG: Normand said Gasser had been released for strategic investigative reasons and because authorities needed to talk to witnesses. Gasser has since been arrested and jailed on a charge of manslaughter.
