He's describing Mr.Poteete? You heard him? You were in earshot of his telling all about it?? Or is there a 3rd victim?It sounds like she just confessed.Right?
How would he know all that unless he knew the feelings first hand?? You should just clean it up.It will free yor mind.
Again,we are reading your words from your heart.Sometimes things get out of hand.But we do not foresee the deeds of our so called good old friends.
Didn't know Poteete.

I'm a mother who lost my only son to the drug world.My heart is crushed.There is not one thing I could do .He was already gone.This mama's best friend.
Bet you have a mother.Just keep her in mind if you don't post anymore.
Honesty is the greatest characteristic you can posess.
It will carry you far in life.Rags will not matter if your coat is made of truthfullness.
Never let others influence you choosing right from wrong. You always have choices.Merle Haggard had a song called: I COULD HAVE GONE RIGHT JUST AS EASY AS I WENT WRONG.He wrote it in prison for burglary as a young man.

Doesn't matter who pulled the trigger. If they were both there, they are both just as guilty.
you all are crazy

I did know Poteete as you called him. You all should be ashamed of yourselves. He was a family member of mine and you all are very disrespectful of a human being. You all seem to forget that this man had family, He had A Mother and siblings. He was cared about by Family. Why in the world would you actually post the things you have on here? You want to talk of his murder as if it was a movie. This happened people, it happened to a member of my family. This is real, it happened here in Lewisburg. It is real, with real feelings. My God you are a heartless bunch of people. My Dad will live with the details of this the rest of his days. His brother was Murdered. His body was burned. He has not been able to sleep, This is real people. Its not a movie, Its not a lie. We were not able to view the body of our Family member because it was burned. What is wrong with you people. I cant believe how bad you are. May God have mercy on your soul, Because you need help. I will pray for you. If you attend church then talk to your pastor, you need help. This meant for EVERYONE who has posted. You all are a sad group. Please let the police deal with this and let this post be done. Gossip is the evil that leads to more evil.

I am sure you have the sympathy of everyone on here but you need to go to TOPIX and read the purpose of TOPIX.
It is for discussions,conversations,opin ions for the community to share.
If it bothers you you should not be reading.We are all adults and we all own our service.Not trying to make fun of you but you are reprimanding ADULTS.
We all know your family.We all know all the details as you say.
We are not judgemental.But you cannot tell people what not to say or discuss.IF a judge puts a gag order for the family not to discuss that is your business.
But street talk will not be muffled for we all have FREEDOM OF SPEECH.
Now ,yes,I called him POTEETE but nothing meant by it.You are making a big issue out of simply a name.There is nothing wrong with a persons's last name.The first was MR.
The parties we talk to, are not close you but you are welcome to join in however, your best move might be to OFF your computer and MUTE your TV and we understand.
I grew up here like other people.We all know them all as neighbors,church members,family friends.

DO not try to reprimand adults .Instead do what your heart tells you.
We will be replying and reading and that is the purpose of TOPIX.TO share community interests and information.No harm meant to you and you certainly have our sympathy .Turn it off and grieve with your family.THey need you, we do not.
You know the TRIBUNE is on here too.
It is sad but it is done and all of you must go on .The guilty parties will get their justice.Of course we all support your family.Good night dear.
You are a little out of line telling US what we need and what you will do for us.YOu talk to your pastor and you get help,we are not sad at all.Discussion is not gossip.Gossip is lies.You see none here.You annoy a little.

If it was one of my family members I would like to know you pulled the trigger because the one who done the shooting is the one who killed your family member the other one is guilty for being there or giving orders to kill them

Yea and maybe you should remember the feeling you went through when your own son died. Maybe WE should start discussion in how he was a dope head and how he stole from everybody to get his next high. Or maybe we should be a little more crude and go into details of his death. Maybe...since we can talk without any remorse or feelings?

If I could help one soul from my heartache,I'd be glad to try.Many came to me with details and I am not throwing rocks at other people.I would write a book about drugs if I could help another family.My head is often bowed in sorrow because I watched it progress.I know young people get started young at bad things and drugs are ruining this country.Many came to me with stories and cried.All locals.
It's been 5 years in October.Tomorrow is his birthday.
We need a means of open discussion here for families going thru heartache.To prevent suicides.
My son died of an ACCIDENTAL MIXED DRUG OVERDOSE.
I had taken him to Nashville that day for surgery on his back.He died that night.
Four hip reconstructions and pain tolerance levels going up, worsening DISC Disease,Ruptured/herniated discs all up and down his spine didn't help.Hospitals made it worse with so many 14 hour operations,and learning to walk again in spite of pain.
Bowels moving 10-12 times a day was a problem he lived with too.I can tell you law enforcement did everything they could to clean a lot up.To be truthful with you,I begged the drug task force to pick him up.It was too late,he was already dead.We had to find him.
I can't bring my son back.It's too late.
I don't know these guys. Don't know the girl.They did a bad deed.
Did not know Mr.Poteete.Know the family well.Been aware of them for years.Know he was in church on Sunday.Good things said about him there.Heard he was a good man.
I hope much gets cleared up and that families can be free to love each other again.Death destroys a family if troubled too long..
If you are related,you have sympathy.If not ,then peace to you.
It has taken 5 years to stop crying so much.God has a way of taking his children back home.I don't question HIS work. He put a stop to something wrong.
I don't know the circumstances here but it's good for people to be able to understand the WHY's and HOW things happen.
Thank you for your comments and it doesnt take much to bring parents and family down.My heart has been heavy too.Mothers are not always able to do much.And then it's too late.But denial doesn't help anyone.When it's too late,we ask ourself what could I have done ??Tell me we don't live in a troubled world.

I can tell you some details especially if it helps another.
They would not let me see his pictures,nor body and I didn't see him until he was embombed and chest felt like cardboard.Autopsy was done and cap on his head.He's buried in all COLTs and his cap is down on his face.
He was very swollen and only God in Heaven knows how much it hurt me.
People fall in with the wrong crowd and the wrong crowd leads them on but in his case,a nurse at Lewisburg Community told me this,"WE made a drug addict of him becaue everytime he gets a new hip,his pain tolerance goes up and he has to have more narcotics".That was a part of his problem.He was a disabled young man for 20 years.He was not supposed to see 50.He saw 41.
And he did tell me he with a school friend,smoked their first marijuana cigarette at 14.It was the boys daddy's and both boys tried it while fishing at Verona.The gateway drug.

He was like Mr.Poteete,if he got down,he could not get up.He kept a pit bull and it slept beside his bed.Always afraid of a break in and his not being able to get back up if down.He had to have help even putting on his shoes.
His left hip to the knee was titanium.He was paranoid of the dark and storms and stayed up most all night.Always afraid of intruder and his being unable to defend himself.
His pit bull disappeared.His protector.$2,000.00 was taken from him the day before he died.All drug related.He got really bad.

Over $125,000.00 went in 7 weeks for "devil drugs".He knew he was going to be dead,told me so.That's when I begged them to pick him up.They were too late.He was already gone.
