May 2009 Unsolved Rape/Jamey DuBose

While we don't think it's connected to the four recent attacks that have taken place in the general area of North Florence, there is a three year-old rape case that remains unsolved in the city. Shortly after noon, on Tuesday, May 12, 2009, a young woman answered the door to her home, described only as somewhere "off Simpson Street." A dark, possibly Middle Eastern man with an accent then forced his way into the home, beat, and raped the woman. The victim was found by her husband sometime around 1:30 p.m. and taken to ECM Hospital for what were described as serious injuries.

WAFF reported at the time that the location of the attack was approximately two blocks from Seven Points intersection. The four home invasion/attacks occurring this year have all taken place to the north of Seven Points, two at apartment complexes.

A poster on the Tennessee Valley Talks Forum has suggested the attacker is familiar with the floor plan of the apartment complexes and may work in maintenance for a similar facility. We've previously suggested the attacker may be a college student since there was a gap in the attacks over the summer months; the attacker could also have been incarcerated during this time.

If you live in an apartment, any added expenses you entail to secure your home may be reimbursed by your landlord. It doesn't hurt to ask...stay safe.


We've had several readers comment on the salary of Florence High School head football coach Jamey DuBose, reportedly the first cousin to former University of Alabama coach Mike DuBose. There seem to be several rumors floating around, but the base annual salary is more, no less. He received a one-time 5K moving allowance from the Florence Quarterback Club.
