@ Lucky. You act like you left the region. Your only 20 min away in Batesville. Your post makes no sense. And if all you have is something bad don't open your mouth. People choose where to live for many different reasons.

Yes he was I am still in disbelief! I can't imagine why anyone would do such a thing to such a wonderful person. He will be missed greatly by everyone that knew him.

I can't believe someone actually judged this disagree, some people have some nerve!! If you didn't agree that he was a good man, you didn't have to post it on here, exspecially with what the family is going through already!! God Bless You!! Prayers still going out to the family and hopefully they will find who done this, and give you closure!!

Prayers go out from my family to his. I hope who was man enough to shoot and kill Mr. Tinsley will be man enough to turn themselves in. They killed a husband, father, grandfather, and friend. Rest in peace Mr. Tinsley!!

Yes. The NPD should be on top of this one. If they can't handle it, they should be calling upon the state or feds. People in this community need answers and justice.

The news is saying they still have no suspects, and that Henry Boyce has asked for help from the state police.

R u one of his jilted lovers or maybe the guilty party trying to keep the heat on someone besides yourself? Because, obviously the police don't even know who did it yet, yet u continue to slander this young man. Wherever you are Chris, keep you head up and don't let these idiots get to you. You do have people standing behind you :)

Mr Tinsley was a sweet soul.Iwish the killer had to look at the pain in his kids and grandkids eyes when they heard this horrific news.They where such close family. The grandkids would talk about pops and their eyes lit up. How could someone be so evil?
