I'm not trying to start gossip, just need my facts straight. Several years ago Latan Weeks' father, I think the name was McDuffie and her son Jimmy Weeks, Jr., was supposedly to have been hired to do a murder. I don't remember the exact details and I think the father was maybe in a nursing home the time. I think the story was something about a murder, but not sure. Please help me out or tell me where to find the story in a newspaper. Thank You in advance for your help. Wasn't someone in Macon or somewhere suppose to write a book on these 2 families

Her father was Henry McDuffie, who spent time in prison for the murder of Dalt and Georgia Kate Burnam back in 73. Dalt was the Deputy Sheriff in Dodge County. The daughter Latan married Jimmy Weeks from Douglas and later had him killed. There was a rumor several years back that a son or grandson was a hitman in the killing of Donald Purser, the Eastman accountant. It was just rumor and I don't think anything came of it.

Some of this story was featured on FBI:the untold stories Left for Dead (part 1,2,3) you can view it on youtube. There is much more to this story, and this family, and getting the facts is rather difficult. After the killing of the father (Jimmy Weeks) the children were sent to live with Susan's (Latan) parents in a small town in southwest ga, yes, the grandfather, mr. mcduffie, was not one to be messed with. I'm sure if you search and search you can find out more info. When the children first came to the new school, there was much hush-hush, lies and of course gossip going on about what had happened. Only later in life did the truth come from the son of Jimmy and Susan Latan Weeks. I will say the son, has had his share of bad luck, however, he has become a fine, fine pillar of the community he lives in, has no involvement with crime and has a family he cherishes and would not ever put them in harms path. The daughter as well, has a great life, a beautiful child. Both of these children (who are grown now), saw more and experienced more in their childhood than any of us will as adults. I'm glad to say I became part of their life when a friend was what they needed and what I became. It makes me smile to see how far each of them have come and accomplished. Last I heard, the mother (susan latan weeks) is still living. not sure when she was released from prison for the murder of the kid's father.

I am the first cousin of Jimmy Weeks, husband of Latan Weeks. Latan set him on the course of a life that led to his death. She came from a criminal background so she knew the criminal life that she introduced Jimmy to quite well. I knew about her and her family long before Jimmy ever met her. He came from a good family that was well respected in their community. The book that she has recently written it biased from the start in her favor. The dead can not speak for themselves.

I had thought the Percer murder had remained unsolved. Seems like assassins run in the family. It blew my mind that the same dude who rubbed out Dalt Burnam and his wife would do a little over 20 years in prison .. get out...and whack Percer with his grand son who was a Weeks. Must have been paid well to do it a second time. John Henry got caught again along with his grandson. I heard Percer had his house decked out with alarm systems. The Feds had him and he was about to start dropping very important Dodge Co names. Evidently both have adhered to the assassin's code of silence and chose time over ratting. The grandson is still in prison and John Henry if he is still alive would be in the Lumber City Nursing home. He was about 74
yo in 2000 which would put him around 86 if he is still extant.

I thought Jimmy Weeks was murder by someone close to him. Can't find anything with this history, but LaTan's book is full of _____. She's lying just like she has done her whole life!!!

and I hear he did not do the Eastman killing. I heard he took the rap
in a deal for a cozy nursing home.
