We've recently mentioned a new look into the Chris Martin murder trial, which produced a manslaughter verdict and a sentence of 20 years. Until now, we knew only that the deceased Grant Campbell had a dishonorable discharge. Was he stealing military jackets and selling them to poor natives in need of clothing as we had originally heard? No. It seems he was selling tactical vests and gas masks. Nice guy. What if it had been your family member who went without protection because of this mentally ill miscreant?
We'll be publishing more on the Marine felon's diagnosed mental state later.
Let's move along to the Autumn Wood murder trial. At the time of the teen's arrest, we heard many comment on her "smirk." It was our opinion that she was attempting to hold back tears. It turns out both views were wrong. Her jaw had been dislocated in the fight at the Eugenia Street home that night. We'll have more later.
If any young women who were present at that ill-fated, unchaperoned house party are reading this, drop us an e-mail. You will always remain anonymous. We don't care about publishing names, just the truth.
Remember: "The b***h stabbed me" might not be the best choice for last words. Autumn is scheduled to come home in two weeks.
From an informed reader on Rusty Wheeles:
Story is Robert Eaton contacted Rusty wanting to build a batting cage in his subdivision. He told Rusty he would pay for it and pay the city workers to build it. Rusty said ok, but then afterwards they found out it was private property belonging to the city. The reason no one knew this beforehand is because the Parks & Rec Board doesn't have an attorney. Every other Board in Muscle Shoals has an attorney except that one. Nonetheless, Rusty has turned in his vehicle and no one plays golf for free.
So did you see the photo of Colbert County escapee Jesse Blake Willis?
We want to know if that's a tattoo of a Sheffield bulldog or Buster Brown's dog Tige?
