Hopefully someone will come forward with information that will help solve this murder. Sad to say but it's been my experience that the George County Sheriff's department lacks credibility in solving murders in the county. I personally know of 3 that were undoubtedly murders but were either unsolved and/or brushed off as some other type of death. The moral of this story is: don't get murdered in George County because the killer will likely to continue to walk around a free person. A State Trooper helped solve one in which a woman was killed and left partially burned in a local motel room but the sheriff's department took the credit for it. Had the trooper not made the traffic stop and observed something wrong and continued questionong, that person would still be free. Drugs are probably the most prevalant thing behind crimes nationwide and George County is no exception but there isn't enough effort put into preventing them or solving the crimes they bring to the community. George County as many others I'm sure, need a lot of professional help in these areas. The police departments there just aren't equipped or trained or have the necessary equipment to handle these situations. Criminals=1, George County=0

I too hope someone comes forward with info...but I don't think its fair to blame the Sheriffs office....they are understaffed and underfunded.and I agree with you....

Most of the crime in George County can be linked directly to drugs, but untill we have more officers on the streets and more funding, not much can change. The courts need to impose much harsher punishments and then stand behind the sentences.

I think the sheriff we have now is a good one...and I wish he would run again....I would vote for him.
And I would like to see Ms.Carrie Moulds as police chief! I think she would kick some butts!
( no offense to the current chief)

I totally and completly agree with you. My experience with the Sheriff's Department in George
County has been one similar to yours. If I hadn't lived there and experienced it for myself I would have never believed it!!!

It's easy for someone who has never done the job to be negative about a law enforcement agency. Everybody always says or thinks they could do a better job, but they really do not know what goes into an investigation in order to make it to court. Solving a homocide is more than just making a traffic stop and knowing what to look for. Processing the crime scene and gathering evidence to put the person in the traffic stop there at the time of the death is just as if not more important. This case in George County is much more complex than the average murder. The problem with most people is that they may have some small piece of information that may seem like nothing, so they keep it to themselves, but could be the one piece of information the investigating agency needs. Or...the person with the information just simply does not want to get involved.

As a native George Countian, I am truly GLAD that I don't reside there any longer...it seems everyone that I grew up with that still lives in that place is on drugs, into no good or just plain gone nutz! My opinion is that the problem is not enough CSI on top of the situations...what's happening to that place? We used to be able to leave our doors unlocked and feel safe, now I fear the safety of my parents that are elderly and still live there...Help needs to arrive, at least the sheriff is a good one this time, the last one was involved in too much of the crimes, and covered up too much! And raising my children in the Houston area was the best decision I ever made as opposed to keeping them in George County, that's for sure! Good Luck staying in that place!

Hmm..another crook in office..that's alot of the reason i said i'm glad i don't live there and have no reason to ever move back! My property i had there was stolen over drugs and the last sheriff and his drug cookers are the ones that done it thru the courthouse along with an attorney that i wish not to name, just hope they all enjoy it and the woman that arranged it all..i truly hope these murders weren't about racial issues, but it surely wouldn't surprise me at all since most there live in their own world of predjudism...i believe in loving one another, no matter what color, it ain't our business!

People in Mississippi get upset when they hear the common stereotypes applied to their state. Well, after living here for 15 years I see that a lot of it is true. It is such a shame because this is a great state with with a lot of good people and a lot of potential. If he cold just get rid of the corruption!!!

George county is no worse or no better than anyplace else. Drugs have taken over...and it is no longer just young people. It is teachers, preacher, doctors....moms and dads...it is so much bigger than law enforcement anywhere.

Blaming law enforcement isn't fair.

drugs are everywhere...whereever u go and whatever ur lookin for ur gonna find it...it's up to the individual as to what they want to become...as for me..i chose to leave my roots in Ms. and move on to a different lifestyle...i tried living there again in the '90's and there were 9 murders in 6 wks...1 of them was a cold blooded drug minded person that drove up and killed his own sister's husband in front of their kids and insanity was to blame...hmm...like i said before...not enough CSI there to get to the bottom of this horrindous tradgedy it's totally uncall for! senseless and brutal...those kids were obviously in love and now what? whose the judge?

For those of you that have lived here or this is home to you....I feel sad that you have such bad memories.

We chose to live here about 17 yrs ago and have no regrets,although we will always be outsiders.
The one thing that I learned early on, is that almost everybody is related to each other in some way.

I have a son graduating GCHS this year and we feel he has had an excellant education.
Taxes are low...car tags are less....people are friendly and caring.And will help you with anything...I had an A/C go out in my home...it was going to be about $2000 to replace...I told the man to just hold off for a week or so because I had to have some money transferred....he said thats ok...pay me when you get it!..He did all the work and we could not believe he just trusted somebody he didn't know, that readily..

I could site many other things that go along with small town living that we have found to be true here...so I am so sorry that those on here who have bad memories,still feel like this isn't a good place.

we love it here and consider it home....and believe that no matter where you live there is going to be drugs...as the other poster said, if you look you can find it.

yes, most people there are related in some way or another and i'm no exception...both sides of my family are all natives...i, however, am truly happy with my decision to leave that place and raise my children with a more "open" minded environment instead of racial and negativity of acceptance such as i was raised...but i disagree with ya on the tags and taxes...you've never lived in Tx? To move out of that was truly a blessing! wyoming ain't bad either...low taxes..lowest population in the u.s., and not kin to anyone here...therefore...i'm happy!But nevertheless its still just a shame this young couple will never get to make those decisions for themselves, because of some coward that won't step up to plate and own their actions...or mind their own business, whatever the case may be! Love one another!!!!! Who's the real Judge?

I have not heard anything else about these murders...nothing in the paper or TV as far as I know...the general consenus is that it is drug related and race plays no part...this is not fact, just opinions as far as I am concerned.

And YES! I have lived in Texas,years ago and you are right, car tags are unbelievable! I had forgotten.But I have a sister that lives outside of Houston, and her property taxes are around $5100...for a 3br 2 bath...and a lot the size of postage stamp...we have 5 acres..3br 2 bath and our 2007 taxes are less than $200.00.

I understand how you feel about being away from Ms....and small town living. It can be awful, especially for young couples or young people in general. Not much to do and people in your business...as small towns usually are.
I envy you life in Wy, although I love Lucedale.

I hope an arrest is quick in this murder, the families deserve that.

I've been watchin and readin and nothing either...what's takin the law so long to disclose exactly what's happened? they will blame it on drugs anyway...don't matter there, especially when it comes to biracial issues...cause they don't wanna admit that it's more than it really is in most cases...predjudism reaks in that place and it's sickening...that's why i love NOT living in Ms and hope i never have to again...not tryin to say anything towards the good people that still reside there...just my own experiences and opionions...and i am entitled to those! i too hope they catch whoever done this masacre and fry their ass...do they still have a death penalty in Ms? i lived in tx too long...there they have an express lane for such sickos...guess we will find out someday..who knows? my prayers are with both families...

yes, we still have the death penalty....for all the good it does....appeals keep them on death row for more years than necessary. You are right about Tx ....maybe all death penalty cases should be heard there!

There is another case in this forum...about a murder. I think the title is ....1 dead 1 injured...in lucedale..it starts off about the murder, then a couple of feuding families, not the victims, get it going.....it has over 650 posts. As I was reading thru this, I thought of you in WY....must be part of the attitude you were talking about here...it is embarrassing to read it, and live here,the main woman is a business woman, and does not conceal her name...it is really pitiful.
Read thru it if you have nothing better to do...you may recognize some names.

that was truly entertaining for hrs! i can't believe some of the stuff i read but i'm not sure who these ppl are...davis' and havard's are familiar to me but i have no idea who the christians are and the girl that was shot...been gone too long i reckon and too old to know...the victims are a bit younger than my daughters but i'm sure they wouldn't know them either...it wouldn't let me read the whole story since it has been so long, and i've just been back online for only a mnth...so sad for any woman to walk off and leave her children, but sometimes it's best when there's such drama....my problem is why keep having babies if ur not gonna hang around and raise them or help whoever is! immoral is all i can say...sounds like a soap opera ya know.

Too bad you could not read the whole thing.
This main woman on here,Pam Thompson Hyatt, was an ex-mother-in-law to the girl that was injured. But as the forum goes on, it turns into a family brawl, between the Hyatt family and Pam and her son. Her against all of them....this kinda of dirty laundry gives everybody here a bum deal. I have been so embarrassed reading this, and I don't know any of these people!
So I do see one point you have about small town living, especially here.
I KNow there is still racism, and I hate that there is, but people seem to get along better here than they do down on the coast or Mobile.Ms.Carrie Moulds is a black lady and she is on the Board of Aldermen in Lucedale. She is not a personal friend, but I have met her and talked to her, both about business and about just "stuff" in general, and I have to tell you , she is one tough cookie, and beyond fair to both blacks and whites. Not to mention , she is a kick in the butt funny! I live in the county,and would love for her to be on the board of supervisors.Or police chief or Sheriff would be even better!!
Of course I am afraid she would be in the same funding sitution as the present sheriff, but one thing is for sure, you would KNOW she was there!

I have not heard anything ...Nothing in the Miss Press yet...and you know we only get a weekly paper here on Thursdays....I will be sure and post if there is something this week.
I think they had a good idea in the very beginning, but you know how that goes. And I think the family might have had a good idea too, but not for sure. I still don't think it was race, but drugs. Might be wrong, but there are so many here that have mixed and it appears to be acceptable.Lots of beautiful mixed babies....that would be the only thing I would have anything to say about....will this affect them later on? will both sides accept a mixed child? Maybe I am just showing my age worrying about this..LOL! Of course, what people think and say in private is something else.

well i heard it was her exboyfriend that was upset about her being with a black man, but of course, that's hearsay...i have a mixed grandbaby and she's absolutely the most beautiful thing, but i'd love her no matter what...took my family a while to except but that's their own crap...i also have quite a few bi-racial great neices and nephews that are adorable...i don't judge books by their cover...that's what my mama always told me but then again...it is called the 'dirty' south...wouldn't surprise me if it was the drugs either...they've gone absolutely nutz there with that man-made stuff..i prefer what God gave us to replenish the supply with! ;)...no seeds in meth i don't think...the george co times doesn't have a website does it? all i can find if ms press and mobile register...u know...we may know each other, who knows! take care and my prayers are still with the young couples' families....i knew her mom and both her grandparents...they are wonderful people.
