Sherman Dean Snuffer shot and killed my cousin Mick Udy as Mick was walking OUT OF THE BAR. The defendant's family obviously has money, because he was represented by Warren G. Thornhill, a highly respected criminal defense lawyer.

The trial ended in a hung jury, as some of the jury members regarded Mick's "hands" / boxing ability as a "lethal weapon", even though there were multitudes of witnesses that attested to the fact that he was indeed leaving the bar.(It was suggested that Mick was "friendly w/ a lady friend of Snuffer).

One sad note to this story, Mick's cousin Lanham L. Cook, a Sheriff's Deputy on duty at the time of the shooting, was the first officer responding to the scene.

It was at that time, and maybe even to this day, one of the longest funeral processions in Raleigh county.

This was in no way a "bar fight", but a tragic, and senseless shooting by an irrational, insecure, cowardly young man. He ended the life of a good, and much loved human being, who is sadly missed.

Anybody else remember these headknockers. What a time, sure beats these worthless pill head turds that couldn't punch their way out if they were the only person in the room.

80's ? Ha ha ha....childs play ask any old timer in Beckley about Hercules that was the one who put fear in everyone in Beckley. late 40's,50's early 60's. No bar fighting simply fighting anywhere and everywhere and everyone who would dare.

I sat and read this entire thread because it was so interesting. I'm a girl and wow i was a kid in the 70's and 80's. People just don't know how to fight anymore. Even when I was in high school in the late 80's guys and girls actually fought, with fists. I don't advocate fighting, but man, you just don't see a good throw down anymore. I need to go watch Roadhouse!
