I don't know if anybody has been to the dollar general lately in maynard but the ex police chiefs wife works there. There for ahwile it had appeared that mrs. M had cleaned herself up a little but in the last month she has jumped back on the dope. Her mouth moves all over her face like its tring to escape. She dosnt carry on conversation and avoids eye contact. She also lost weight in her face. She looks ruff. Is it a coincidence that this man who is involved in the same case as here was murder just before he changed his plea. And murdered around the time that mrs m started main lining meth again. If u ask me she knows somthing and could be responsible.

. First off she is not being drug tested she has not been proven guilty of anything. Her job does not drug test her and even if she is being tested meth stays in your sytem as little as 24 hours up to 5 days dependending on metabolic rate and the amount of fat cells in the body. Not to mention all the masking agents that can be purchased online to cover up drug use. Her own husband that was the cheif of police did not know about her drug use nor did the judge she worked for. All I am saying that its a possibillity. Not to rule her out. We the tax payers paid her husband for years to arrest and protect us from people like her. So before you go off half cocked and call someone crazy check your facts. Don't believe anything that you yourself can't prove. Do the research yourself and don't repeat everything you here as if it were fact.

Okay I'm tired of this! What Trish did was wrong yes chad stood by her because he loves her and you don't give up on family. Key word FAMILY their someone's family and your gonna sit here and bash on him and her?? No not cool just stop running your mouth! That's all people know how to do and yet it gets you no where! He's more then an ex chief he's a loving father, brother, song, and uncle. I'm therefore the happiest I ever been. He doesn't leave family behind he's a man that is loving and caring and cares for people around him! So just please stop!

I know she is drug tested by her probation officer and by the court system every time they see her also know that she absolutely hates meth bc it ruined her life but she is better now!! I can promise you you can walk up and drug test her at any moment and she is clean.

I didn't "hear" anything whoever you are that thinks you know so much. I have been there many times while she was drug tested not by her job but by the federal govt. I dont need research. She has a probation officer that pops in also to drug test her. She has had PLENTY. She could never kill anyone . Plus why would she? She had already plead guilty to her charges!!!!! She had nothing to gain from this mans death! Since you know so much why don't you put in an application for the FBI JUSTICE!!
It was a cover up

First of all She was Previously Arrested in Missouri and her hubby ( remember he was a DARE officer) got her off,so he knew all about her addiction and was unable to stop it. If you have ever been around some one with a Meth addiction they are Not acting in a normal manner and can not function well.
The Chief lost his job and rightly so since he was an enabler of an addict.
He may love his wife , but he was protecting his position and violating the law. He needs to be charged and face a trial.
He is now an Angel

I posted intentionally without the 'l' in leave, and also misspelled people. The reason...People should spend more time cleaning up their own backyards, as opposed to digging around others. We all fall short of the Glory of God, and it's not our place to judge who's wrong or right. I'd met Travis a few times, and he was always very polite and respectful. Regardless of your opinion of him, he has family and friends who don't appreciate the negative posts. Would you want your friends and family having to look at these comments ? And God forgive the one who says " I wouldn't care. I haven't done anything wrong". Trust me, someone would find something, even if they had to add to it ! RIP Travis.
