Has anyone else heard about the City Attorney, and two other local officials committing suicide in the last month? The Godfather of Taylor County says it's all a coincidence... With all the violent crime like murders this person chooses not to prosecute, it is hard to swallow that their is not more to this story...hmmm

Who are the other 2 suicides?
Thanks!

Can someone tell me what is all going on with this? I just heard this today but all I heard was Judge Motes was under some kind of investigation, Howard shot himself along with some other people... cops selling drugs.. I cant find it anywhere on WBOY's site. I just moved back to michigan last sept from grafton so I cant really keep up on things. Thanks!

Well This is all rumors yes Mr Ferris took his life and yes the city Judge passed away but from a major heart attack which was confirmed by the State Medical Examiner those were the only two local officals that have passed away. There are no cops selling drugs and Judge Moats is still the Circuit Court Judge in Taylor and Barbour Counties. So if he was being investigated for any wrong doing the state would have removed him from the bench just somemore Rumors being circulated by Grafton Rumor Mill

Hey GWVM stop putting the truth on here. Ppl don't like the truth. They rather live a lie and do drugs, pop out lots of kids and get more welfare. All I can say is the apple don't fall far from the tree. So what should we expect????

It's rumored that ufos have been seen in Taylor County and that the invasion has started. All county & city officials have been replaced by clones. Erratic behavior is likely to be seen until they have been fully assimilated into the local population.

I hope those UFOs don't try landing on any of the city's weak sidewalks.

The concrete collaspe that you all refer to wasnt a sidewalk it was a patio at the back of an apt building. There was an old wine cellar under the patio that was abandoned

We don't care about facts - the whole thread was based on rumors!! This reminds me of an oldies song with slightly updated lyrics:

"the sidewalks in the street,
the concrete and the clay,
beneath my feet begins to crumble.
I hope nobody dies.
We'll see a few people tumble,
into the abyss before our eyes

My lawyer and I will be,
In court eternally
and that's the way mmmmmm
the way it's gonna be"

it is no rumor sir, if you simply believe what WBOY/T.C.Officials tell you... you are a fool! At least as much as anyone would be that BELIEVES WV will investigate itself rather than let its officials get away with covering up murder... NO RUMOR THERE EITHER! I did not circulate rumors about arrests of judges... that would be Taylor county officials, and WBOY dillweed, read the RUMOR FILLED ARTICLE, it is the epitome of misinformation! Judge Springs did in fact head the Board of directors of the library in Grafton when the $200,000 disappeared and was never mentioned again... BY WBOY... Howard Ferris WAS IN FACT heavily involved in DRUGS... Given he was the city attorney, can your little mind even imagine how that might have comprimised his actions as THE GRAFTON CITY ATTORNEY DRUG DEALER/USER... HELLO!!!

The Truth must hurt the brains of the ignorant for them to fight so hard to deny it.
can you say propaganda machine... TRUTH IS these people should be arrested, if you don't know, you don't know...

Abandoned by who? You mean wine cellars the city approved as safe and let their buddies sell to me... after allowing them to block off the rooms that were collapsing with cinder block to hide it..

Those ABANDONED WINE CELLARS?????

It was shown abandoned yrs ago maybe you should have researched the property before you bought it not trying to start an arguement but when i have purchased property i have done alot of research on the property did deed searches and contacted previous owners to find out about the property did you do any research I have found that you have to do alot of the research on your own because until recently the court house wasnt much help

The City allowed 6 out of 7 of the apartments on that lot to be rented before I bought them... These cellars were attached... how the hell is that abandoned? O wait a second... thats right... the city never forced the previous owner to bring them to code before he sold them, but DID approve them as SAFE weeks before the sale when they finally created rental registration documents to convince me they were up to code... my mistake?

Sorry, its a sensitive subject to say the least... but when rooms I didnt even know existed are found to have been blocked uop to hide the fact they were collapsing, under the city's direction, or NOSE at the very least, it gets complicated when people are killed and crippled... These people passed a hot potato with the CITYs approval... They should be the ones charged with manslaughter!!!

Amen! maybe since these scumbags robbed me of everything I own... i should consider welfare too, and handfulls of antipsychotic meds... Obviously anyone that cares must be nuts! I sure hope the whole town falls down on all of these Government officials that perpetuate this criminal behavior... Does that make me a bad person?

This is just beyond comprehension, Didnt mean to bark at you... But I never believed that this could be condoned by our government for profit... Foolish me...

Would it surprise anyone that a structural engineer who I had survey the building after the collapse says it is all ready to fall down... Really!!! and the city allowes the same building to be occupied right now.... so they can collect fire fees, and have firemans balls. I bet THAT even makes the paper... the BALLS I mean...
