I am right there with you! Not only did he kill him! But he had been stealing and lying to everyone! I think it is a sin he is still in Greeneville and hasnt been to court yet! Some people can get away with everything!

Dykes and his girl friend were staying with a neighbor - Dykes' girlfriend had been talking to Mr Henry. Dykes dumped Henrey's cell in the river - because it had to have connected him to Mr Henry. Henry's son said that 2 women were in the home at the time of the shooting. My guess is he shot him over his girlfriend since it was not a robbery and Mr Henry, according to family did not talk pain meds. Just a thought
There were beer cans in the home and all the people were using drugs: the neighbor (Marilyn Mott), Shayla, Dykes, and Tim.

And to the contrary there was also a robbery right before this and all three were involved: Marilyn Mott, Dykes, and Shayla. The safe wound up in the livingroom of Marilyn Mott. Although she says that she was not involved, she was arrested and she never reported the robbery to the police. Marilyn was also the one that drove Dykes to the river to dump the cell phone and the gun that shot Mr Henry. Marilyn rehearses her story all the time so that she will not forget what she is to say. She actually thinks that she is not going to jail.

Oh, and ironically the gun that was used belonged to Marilyn's x-husband in Knoxville. She has borrowed it from him right before all this happened? Planned? not sure.... just saying. She is capable of anything. Her husband died and he was cremated and her brother Jerry made sure that the ashes were spread from a plane within days of the death. She never shed a tear. The man's airplane and everything he had was sold within a month of his death. LOL... but she hasn't got to keep any of it. She ran through all of it with her drug and alcohol addiction. And there is more... but the main point is that she is getting what she deserves!!!!

Yes he did claim that... that was his and Marilyn's story that Mr Henry and Shayla and Tim were shining lights in at Marilyn's and the Dykes man went outside with a gun and Mr Henry held him at gun point, made him walk to the Henry home and then Dykes shot him

However, why was the door kicked in....why would you shine a light into a house that had all the lights on....and why do you not call the police, drive to the river and dump a cell and the gun? Neither Marilyn or Dykes called the police......and Marilyn thinks that she had nothing to do with the murder???? really

Mike was a good guy down on his luck. He started to church was doing well and then stepped away from God and got into the wrong things in life and now there is a life missing and one in jail because of the devil and the pretty things of this world he puts in front of us to pull away from God.

That doesnt take a rocket scientist.... she was staying with Marilyn and sleeping with Dykes and Mr Henry... Dykes was jealous and and shot him..... would that not be why he threw the Orville's cell in the river???? just saying....

I knew Michael very well! To well he was on drugs and stole every thng he could get his hands on!He could lie with the best! He boke in my home stole a lot of stuff and lied t my face! Has NOT a GOOD guy! Good liar yes! After the drugs he was a bomb waiting to go off! He told me more than one time he would hurt me or KILL me! If I didnt do what he asked! He stole from his own family!

Yes he said he was made to do this! But what made him do drugs steal and lie! He did this not only to himself but to this poor Family! Im am very sorry someone had to die for people to see how he was!

He has hurt many woman that will always pay for what he has done! My back will never be the same I hurt every day becuse of that asshole!

What is even more sad is that not only did he do this had he not gotten away with so much befor, This would have never happened

Sad thing is he hurt alot of people, and still feels sorry for himself!

I wish I could talk to someone in this family.... Just to say how sorry I am no one would listen to us what he was capable of! Had they this could have NEVER happened!

I pray they get some kind of answers to what happened and that Dykes stays in jail the rest of his life!

M. Dykes is a blood relative of mine. His behavior problems were prevalent as a child, adolescent, and in early adulthood. Constant lying, stealing, jealousy, vandalism, and animal cruelty are what he did best. His mother worked a lot as a nurse, but was sickly often. His father was primarily a long distance truck driver or logger. His parents truly thought he would “grow out of” these behaviors as he matured. They did not raise him to be a killer. He was surrounded by caring parents, aunts, uncles, and cousins during his youth. He needed professional help at an early age, but no one in the family ever realized how much. The childhood behaviors that he never grew out of and behaviors left professionally undiagnosed amplified by adult-hood alcohol/drug abuse created the M.Dykes that will spend 26+ years in prison. See recent G’ville Sun for details. I am not trying to defend Michael or justify what he did. I will leave it to you to determine if justice was served or not. What I want you to do is look deep within your own family for the warning signs among any of your young siblings, nieces, nephews, cousins, neighbors. You may save a troubled kid from becoming another M. Dykes.
