Here is all it says. I don't know any of these people but when I went on the CRJ site I seen his picture, and I believe that may be his son in jail with him. I think my son went to school with that kid not sure if it's the same one. Who is Harvey Hersman?

MT. NEBO, W.Va.(WSAZ)-- A man from Nicholas County is behind bars, charged with murder.

According to the West Virginia State Police, Richard White, 41, of Mt. Nebo, was arrested Wednesday night.

State Police tell White got into an altercation at Harvey Hersman's house along State Route 41 in Mt. Nebo, and then later shot and killed him.

The alleged crime happened around 10:45 p.m. Wednesday.

Hersman was pronounced dead at the scene. He was 57 years old and from Mt. Nebo.

State Police say they found White at his house around 3:00 a.m. Thursday and charged him in the death of Hersman.

this is a sad situation and it just shows how the system let the kids down in the younger years. his son has been pulled into something that he had no idea was going to happen. noone knows or expects their father of going over the edge like that in front of them and at 19 and just getting home on leave from the military for a one day visit.there has been a history of severe abuse and drugs by both father and step mom for many years and this is no suprise about the father.the child protective service would not help them and other not named family tried hard to help but your local system stated he was a fit parent and now his son my pay the price for just being at the wrong place at the wrong time. we will have to see what becomes clear in the future. i will say the system there is so broken and the drugs and violence is heartbreaking your officials really needs to clean up the county and where are the pastors and community members. for those who know this story its a struggle of someone trying to break free from a horrible life created by those who are to protect him and continues to carry fear for what his father does to him. those of you who have a loving father need to thank GOD every day for that because there are fathers like richard who's colder than anything you can imagine and worse than the idea of hell.

This is a very sad situation, sounds like Harvey was a neighbor of the abused situation and must have tried to help!
I hope Richard White sr rots in jail as he has taken a friend who probably tried to help this family from abuse!!! His son may be inocent, hopefully, if he lived an abusive life maybe he went to stop his father!! But that doesn't bring back Harvey, a great friend, love of my life at one time, breaks my heart to see any drug abuse and murder!!!
