No, He has been charged with Murder and a few other things.
I have to hand it to all involved in Gallia Co. including the Sheriff Office. Great job on this. I'm from that area, and hear that the crime is just awful there now.
Hope the Kids & David rest a little easier atleast knowing that the pathetic person responsible for the crime is behind bars where he belongs. I send a prayer there way, for them and the friends and other family of Betsy Ball. What a wonderful women she was. She will always be remembered.

No trial yet but, they did not just pick a random person. You know there must be strong evidence against him. I can't help but wonder about the motive to do that to another human..? What could a person possibly gain, that would be worth trading your freedom the rest of your life here, and your home in heaven for eternity? Whoever done that is pathetic. Thank-you LEOs. My town will rest a little easier now.

Isn't he the boyfriend of the ex daughter in law to Mrs. Ball? From what I heard in and around Vinton,(rumor) she was found dead close to her sons house with some horrific injuries(rumor) Mrs Ball(rumor) had testified/ turned in ex daughter in law and this was revenge. I apologize for any inaccuracies and prayers go out to family and loved ones.<3

Lee Hawkins is married. Not to ex daughter in law. She was found on property previously owned by her first husbands family that was left to her son when they passed (not son with ex wife rumored to be involved). Not sure abt her having testified against her.

He was a farm hand on the farm. They treated him like family. So why would he do something so sick?

Since when does arrested mean evidence? They can arrest you on just suspicion you know.

I'm not stirring crap. I have never started a thread about someone nor have I ever really talked shit about someone. It's also innocent until proven guilty, remember? You seem to think you know about the judicial system but have forgotten the basic idea to it. And yes, REALLY.
