EDITOR NOTE: I HAVE KNOWN THIS MAN FOR MANY YEARS AND HE WOULD HAVE GIVEN THE SHIRT OFF HIS BACK FOR ANYONE. I HAVE SEEN PEOPLE COME IN SHORT OF CASH AND NEED CIGARETTES OR SOMETHING AND HE WOULD JUST LAY THEM ON THE COUNTER. HIS NAME IS BEING WITHHELD BY THE SHERIFF’S OFFICE AT THE FAMILY REQUEST AS HE HAS A VERY EXTENDED FAMILY THAT REACHES AROUND THE GLOBE.
PLEASE IF ANYONE SAW ANYTHING, EVEN IF YOU THINK IT MAY BE NOTHING PLEASE CALL CRIME STOPPERS.
