Stealing vehicles is one thing, but a dead man's ashes? Maybe they found the box and thought it was drugs they could sell.

Its a shame that they took that truck and crushed it but that's how jc rolls he thinks he can do whatever he wants he's always been like that running his junk garage and renting them mobile homes to mexicans to work for him that's why he's got so much money it ain't from hard work it all comes from shitting people out of something so i hope he has to pay libby good money for the truck cause i know for a fact that benny put a lot of hard work and money into it so libby if u read this don't let them get away easy with what they have done to you and your family

Was it jc's wife that was arrested for selling heroin? I know her husband runs runs jim's garage on abingdon rd and his name is jim coffey. Maybe the sheriffs department needs to reserve a whole cell block for them.

Something isnt right about this whole situation! I think maybe they sold the truck to the man and then regretted doing so . Everyone knows that this Libby is a trouble maker and DRAMA seeker so i believe the real truth will come out and then everyone will know the whole story

And here we go. People can't ever seem to resist an opportunity
to give this Libby woman grief. She's accused of everything under the sun, but who is it trying to stir up a mess about her? I don't know the woman but it is reasonable that she isn't the culprit of every wrong that happens in the world today. The story says her dad's ashes were in the truck. How about cutting the woman some slack for once? I know how I'd feel if it were me, and I wouldn't want people coming on a web site talking about me like I was a dog. So just once, can we all try to be decent? Just this once? Please??

Yes it does say her dads ashes were in the truck however when they went to search the truck there was no evidence of a box even being in that truck

Did you stop and think that coffey and his buddy probably went thru the truck before they scrapped it and found the box? Maybe they thought there was something in there they could sell. Who knows. The bottom line is coffey stole the truck and scrapped it. Whether or not this libby is a drama queen is irrelevant. If she had sold the truck to coffey he would have had the title or a bill of sale from her. Coffey and his whole family is trouble. It was his daughter in law that was caught along with her father selling drugs. She'll probably serve time when she finally goes to court. As for his son he's as big of a crook as his dad. He just ain't been caught yet.

i agree you should not be trashing the womans name ,there is no DRAMA to this story.they came onto her property stole the truck and the remains were as stated in lenoir news topic in fact in the truck, altho they were not found that still does not give people the right to say bad things about the dead mans daughter who kept what ashes she had left to honor her father. that truck was not for sale and it had never even been discussed to sell give away or anything.i personally know libby and people this is not a time to trash her,she get's acused of topix post that i know beyond a shadow of any doubt she is not responsible for posting. for the love of GOD if any of you have any heart at all please do not trah her now.she is taking care of her husband whom has been given less than 6 month's of life she is not bothering anyone.she was ask to do that story in the news by a news reporter. james coffey and tony hudson stole the truck scrapped it and yes her fathers remains were in the truck. the reason the box containing his small remains were not found is the truck haad already been crushed by the time law enforcement arrived to ty and even recover anything so it is very possible and would of been extremly hard for the remains to have been found in what they were in. so before you go trashing a woman who is going through about all she can take. think of how you would feel if this were your family.thank you

also no that truck was not ever for sale never had been never would of been the truck was her husbands dead fathers truck her husband has had the truck over 20 yr's himself and this truck had sat in the same spot since around 2003 so the truck would of never been for sale or give away or for scrap. this woman has lost alot and she is a good person.to everyone so maybe you envy her to trash her but you will not see her coming on here to curse you or respond back to your vulgar trashing of her,she has her plate full and could use alot of support although she dont ask and want hardly ask anyone for anything. so if you have negative things to say please stop and think of how you would feel had you lost your home this truck and now she sits 24/7 not asking a sole for help watching her husband slowly and daily fade away. i can guarantee she has many friends.you may be an enemy or just someone she has ran off or simply chose to shut you out of her life.but she is a kind hearted person who is walking a very lonely and sacrificing her own health and has devoted her life to what time she has left with her husband.so please dont trash her,thank you again. GOD BLESS YOU and those who envy her she is a kind hearted person she is not drama or trouble. ive known her half my life and many times she has helped me and my children with food kerosene heat a ride to the store etc. and if those that are trashing her know her so well you call her tead of trashing a woman who is carring a burden that none of like to face which is loosing everything then not knowing what day she will wake up and there will be no breath in her poor husband. please people dont do this to her right now

I dont see someone coming onto someone else's property and stealing a truck and then taking it to the scrap yard knowing they have to show id !! They have to be smarter than that

He just got caught doing what he's been doing for years. Law enforcement should check his junkyard and Jim's garage to see if there's anymore stolen vehicles they can part out or scrap.

really? so questioning whether or not the cremains of this lady's dad was ever in the truck to begin with is not bearing false witness on her?

She said his cremains were in the truck when the truck was taken.
What would she gain in telling a lie about it?

the creamains that still smelled of smoke from the burning home she had ran back into trying to save her father were wrapped into a small pillow case and lay safely behind the seat of the truck. mrs jones is carring a heavy load people,since sept 19th she has slept side ways in a hard chair at grace and valdese not leaving her husbands side,many days she had nothing to eat no visitors just her faith and prayers,the fact remains yes her fathers ashes were in the truck that dales scrap yard scrapped after being told by ccsd thats trucks stolen he is standing with the owner describing every detaij of the truck with 7 witnesses, the truck was all her huusband had left from where his father was found dead in bernhards furniture,thurmon jones, so this truck carried many heart broken memories and held the remains of libbys fathers creamted remains of her father she has lost so much her home this truck her fathers remains and now in 6 months or less and now she has maybe less than 6 months to care for her husband so i ask this of you all! please dont trash her right now she is over whelmed dealing with the news of her husbands death, she is trying hard too take care of him all by her self thank you

The story in the news topic said that he had wanted his ashes to be placed in the truck. Evidentially, his daughter didn't want to do that at first and kept them in their home that burnt. Once the home burned, she placed them in the truck.

I don't get being all up in her business like this. Why do those of you who attack her feel that you are right to do so? What gives any of you the right to treat this lady the way you have been treating her? Regardless of any history she may or may not have with any of you, it doesn't excuse you from the responsibility of your own actions and how you act towards her.

What if it had been your home that burned? What if you were sitting in her position right now? What if you had people kicking you when you were already dealing with high stress?

Do you ever stop to think that it could just as easily be you sitting with a dying loved one that is your whole world? It happens to everybody else, right?

Libby, I don't know you, but I will be praying for you, your husband, and your situation.

God hears, He pardons, and He gives new life in abundance.

God bless you.
