It's not surprising a lot of older people are involved in the oxy drug cases, after all doctors are constantly prescribing those pills for any kind of pain. Just like ex-Judge Baumgardner in Knoxville...what a way to end a life...not very attractive.

I think you're talking about Donnie Coffey, the one that had peep holes in the tanning rooms? Might be his son, I don't know

Donnie is Howards son. That's why I was wondering if it was the same Howard Coffey or not. I worked for them many, many years ago for 4 years and I never saw a peep hole. Not saying they didn't exist but I never saw them and I ran the place most of the time. The Howard I'm talking about was married to a Linda when he owned the video stores.

It was the one who lived on Bridle Way. He doesn't own the park - just lived there. The guy who had the tanning bed place with peep holes was not Donnie. Donnie had a tanning and video store and always had his kids around helping. I know which one you are talking about though. That guy was short and creepy. After he got shut down, I heard a couple of people sued him.

Anyway, word is that Howard and Tabitha Lindsey went to prison last week. The other four have made pleas but haven't started serving their time yet. Should be more arrests to come - like Howard's brother G.D. and that newspaper guy Gary Smith.

The sad thing is that these people don't realize what they are doing to their families. Everyone loves the Coffey family and that other girl had to leave her two little kids. It's so sad.

At one time Howard (when married to Linda) had Video Tan East up on EAJ Hwy. and they also had a video/tanning salon on Buffalo Trail. They closed the one on Buffalo Trail and kept VTE for a few years then sold it to some freak. I spent a lot of time with Linda and Howard and the whole family. Donnie was married to Karen then and there son was just little then. I loved them all. I hate to hear this is the same Howard. I never would of imagined this. But, I do not feel sorry for him or anyone else involved. If the girl had to leave her two kids behind, those two kids are better off without her if she was a druggie, dealer, whatever. I feel no pity for people who use, sell, etc.

To Caring, yes he had a slight speech impediment and yes, Foister and Roger are his brothers.

Do any of you realize that maybe just maybe even if mistakes were made, it is killing the Coffey Family to see what is happening here? You come on a site, hide behind a name and post rumors..If you have something to ask, why not ask a family member directly? Why post up what you "think" you know on a website that is full of gossips. Regardless of what has happened, Howard still has sons (with wives) and his own grandchildren who are all old enough to get on this site and read what is posted. I won't say what he allegedly did is right if he did it, but I will say this, THINK about HIS FAMILY who sees this gossip and things being said about their Dad/Papaw. They all LOVE him very much, regardless. Thank you and instead of gossip, why not reach out to talk to the family and try to help them cope with what is going on? God Bless.

Can someone please tell me where Howard went to prison at? I used to know him really well, and he was a good friend. I would like to know where he is, and maybe contact him. I can at least pray for him. I agree that everyone makes mistakes, we all do, and sometimes we get caught and sometimes we don't. God knows it all..I would think that someone locked up at his age could use some encouragement. I would like to send him a card and let him know that I am praying for him, for peace. The peace that passes all understanding, which comes from God!
