Thank you for your follow-up on my cousin's assault. We were getting conflicting news reports that Bruce D. Smith was not going to be held responsible for this crime.
Our family intends to continue media support so his death will not be in vail.

So Bruce Smith will face murder charges? On what I ask will be the charge, murder one or two? Bruce smith knew what he was doing when he found Mr. Sanders and in all practical sence beat the man to death.

The claim that mr.sanders had sexual molested his female relatives, should have been reported to the police and then followed up by the DDS. No one has the right to play judge jurry and hang man.

This idealisum that some have to take the law into thier own hands is a fairy tale. Not only has one family lost a relative, another family is about to lose a member of thier family via the judical system.
Thats two familes lifes ruined! For what? Remember,, Vengence is mine say the lord.
We are but mere men , and not more!

Hudson police now investigating a homicide


Hudson police are investigating their first homicide of the year.

Twenty eight year old Floyd Sanders died Saturday, after his family made the decision to take him off life support.

What was first an assault case has now turned into a homicide investigation.

Police say Sanders was severely injured one week ago at an apartment at 449 State Street in the city of Hudson.

Police got a call for a fight, and when they arrived they found a pool of blood and Sanders lying on the back porch. He had bleeding on the brain, and had to undergo emergency surgery.

At the scene, police detained and arrested thirty year old Bruce Smith. Detectives say Smith claims his two young female relatives were molested by Sanders and that is why he attacked him.

Smith is being held on a parole violation charge, but police say additional charges are possible.

Detectives now have to re-interview witnesses as they tackle their first homicide of the year.

They will learn what injuries lead to Sanders' death after an autopsy is done on Sunday.

(If it was my son, personally I would not have taken my son or whoever off life support; they would have to pass on there own) thatís just me.)I donít care if I had to take care of him for the rest of his or my life but me as a father wouldnít and couldnít do it! Why did the family give up on him so soon? Doctors will give up on you but family is supposed to hang in there until the end and in this case from the reports this was not the end for this man. Someone did not want the responsibility of caring for a 28year old baby.

(Isnít this a confession? So why havenít they charged this man with premeditated murder?) Huumuumm, does this police department knows what they are doing? What witnesses when you have talk with the perpetrator and he stated that he attacked him because Floyd molested his two female relativesÖ.. duhhhhhh. Now, God forbids if Floyd is a molester (if) how do you charge a dead man with child molestation? Is this even possible?

You r Crazzzzy man!!!.lol

How can they charge a dead person with a crime? I am sure he is not a molester but that is a curious question... huuuum, got me thinking. Although these days with forensic and technology anything is possible. I have seen police catches criminals with only a fiber and a shoe print so yeah anything is possible. I work at a university and I am going to contact someone within the law department and ask them that question, but if you get it before I do please post it for I am curious myself if anything like that is possible, I donít thinks so though. Mr. Sanders name will not be blotch by forged indictment; and even if he is found accountable of the transgression, throbbing him to death is not allowable unless he was caught in the act. I donít know!!!
I donít think by far that this Youngman would even look at a baby for those kids are babies in that manner much-less touching them, for real!

Don't believe everything you hear, obviously! Sanders has been in and out of jail for various drug charges and has had his 4 kids taken away from him MANY times by the state. The state pays for him to live and his 4 kids and his girlfriend doesn't stop popping them out. He has been accused of molesting numerous girls, and this will be proven in court

i just want to say that no one knows the real story on this, parents were confronted with a man that touched there children people lost control. there is a women sittin in jail that has five children now in the foster care system, before this women was put behind bars for 25 years, a better investigation into what happened that nite should have been done cause the person most likely responsible for doing this got off, and is now free to do whatever he wants.
