His name is Ellis Witherspoon. He's lived in this area for years. Yes, he stabbed the mother of his kids, ditched the car, & took the kids. The car was either ditched or broke down on old hwy 5 next to the old doctors office that's for sale now. He was spotted on Wash Wilson in Epworth with the two kids. He then called his brother-in-law to say he was going to give up the kids to authorities, which he did not do. They've recieved a ping from his cell phone around 12:30 around the Timberlake Rd area off of Galloway Rd. it was told that he has called his brother-in-law numerous times & at one point in time he heard the little girl, who is less than a year old, crying in the background and it sounded like he was walkin through some leaves. But how can this man, run with a 2 yr old & an 5 month old on foot from Old hwy 5, to Wash Wilson, to Galloway unless he's ditched the kids somewhere or someone is helping him.

His wife had been sleeping around on him and was pregnant with another man's baby & was threatening to leave Ellis. It's being said that he caught her in bed with the man & snapped. It was really surprising that it was Ellis because anytime anyone would see the little family they were always so happy. Laughing, cutting up, always had the kids playing with them & being parents. The racism comments are really lame
& immature.

Early is still a murderer. Do t really car Ethan the investigation pulled up. But that's not the point here points the woman and kids are okay that's the main thing it could have been much much worse.

There is NO justice for Carl "Pops" "Willie" Davenport. Verizon gave the coordinates of the last cell phone call placed by Ellis and they started searching in the area. If Early was the one to have found him & the children, great job to make sure he acted quickly once he spotted him and the camper caught on fire. I bet he thinks twice before he shoots now. All of the FCSO deserves a pat on the back but Earley doesn't deserve to be fully redeemed for the killing of one innocent man by the capture off one that is not innocent.

Carl Davenport came at Earley with a shotgun. He was not an innocent man. Earley did what he had to do to protect his own life. That does not make him a murderer. All the garbage that has been posted about this incident could possibly cause Earley to hesitate next time, which could cost him his life. You people need to think about that and in the meantime, keep up the good work Deputy Earley. Great job Sheriffs Office on the successful rescue of these children!!

I'm very thankful the children and woman are safe that's horrible that they all had to be put through this terrible ordeal on a side not to the above poster. Unless you were there and are in fact a LEO covering for the incompetent trigger happy little bastard, then you don't know anymore than anyone else does. The report stated earlys dash cam was off so there's no record of the event other than the one provided by early against mr.davenport who regretfully wasn't able to give any pertinent info because as they say. Dead men tell no tales. Michael Early, regardless what he does further I to his career, will forever be remembered as a murderer by the people of this area. That's not gossip. It's not he said she said. It's fact. Because its been drilled into people's minds. And I'm one of those of the opinion that he fired because he's incompetent. And a coward. But again, it's just my opinion, you can like it or leave it. Again, extremely happy that the children and their mother are doing okay they need all the prayers and help they can get at this horrible time in their lives.

If fifteen stab wounds does not kill you then surgery in Fannin County probably would... just a guess.
