So we are not going to hear any further details? Are we to assume the murder weapon was/was not the fancy BB gun found in Hilton's van?

people here don't know what being in the woods is like, here if you want to see 10 million people, go hiking, or better yet, go to the mall...
Your accusing the wrong crowd. It is the NRA nuts that want to carry concealed guns.
My wife & I ran into this couple twice that I remember. They were very nice. We also ran into hilton too. Talked with the Macon County police about it.
Personally, I have carried a no.10 Buck knife in a sheath, for about 30 years. Used it in my farming most every day.

Anything you can share with us about meeting either the Bryants or Hilton? Or LE for that matter?

I've never known a gay person with [email protected] enough to carry a gun.

Ran into them twice. Just very nice up-beat people. Her smile was radiant.
The weekend of the Cherokee(sp) bike meet last fall my brother in law, wife & I were coming out of the woods at the pull-off just west of Graveyard fields on the right, when here comes this white van with a guy who looked like another person I knew in Indiana. He was driving slowly & looking at our bikes. Didn't wave or acknowledge us at all. Real spooky looking guy. I said that was exactly the type of person who would load a bike up & be gone.
When the picture of the van hit the news I told my wife that it looked familiar. Then when his picture hit, I said 'that's that guy. Eventually I reported it to Macon county.

Chuck, did LE give you any reason to believe that they had heard from others about seeing him during that time? He did get into that one fight at the biker bar years ago, acc to what has been written about on the internet. He was looking to score some coke. Now, I am not going to make a quantum leap and say that because he was once said to be at a biker bar then he most definitely would be scouting out bikes at the meet. But wondering if there was buzz among others that he had been around?
