The more facts come out the more of an ass you are making of yourself. Everyone gets it that you loves these to men because they are your family, and you should love them. I have family that have been in trouble with the law too and I love them just the same but I am not stupid to the fact they they are not perfect. The public would have the right to now just the same if it were my family. This happened right on the side of a busy road for Gods sake.

Please stop "defending the family name" epically with all of the police records coming out and the pictures that have been released to the media are mug shots taken at the jail. Yes, you loved them and you should, thats what family does. You are making yourself look stupid "defending the family name" You married in, please stop embarrassing the family this way.

Like I said YOU DONT KNOW ME. The only reason I am not with the family today is I am running a member of my immediate family (my grandmother) back and forth to drs appts and staying home with my children. If you have something you want to say to me call me! Im not afraid to speak my mind. Im not hiding behind an interent name. Every post I have made has been under my own name. I married into the family, I still have family of mine that needs my care and concern too. I dont see how you say I am making an ass out of myself defending the family.

Let it go Michelle. You are making it worse by answering to these stupid post. I have known Jimmy for alot of years and he was never known to do drugs, maybe a little other trouble. But I always liked him, so please quit answering these posts. People are doing it to get you to respond, so quit responding and they will go away. I know when it is family, it is hard to not respond but try.

Everyone who has posted is sorry for your families loss. It is not their fault what has happened within the family. We know your family loved these men and we are all sorry.
But here is the facts:
1. The shooting took place on the side of US highway 25 not in your families backyard. An innocent person could easily have been shot passing by.
2. A passing motorist called the police and reported hearing the gunshots as he passed by. FACT. He or someone in my family could been shot as they passed by. I had just drove by 10 min before this happened!(Source: WKYT 27 news report about motorist calling in hearing gunshots)
3.You are defending the "family name'? Seriously, you just need to go and comfort your family because no matter what our families do we still love them. But it is OUR business because it happened in a public place!

We're learning more about a double shooting that left one man dead and another in critical condition.
The men were found Sunday night inside a car off U.S. 25 in Richmond.
Police say they're still trying to figure out exactly what led to the shooting.
They say the two men found in the car were an uncle and his nephew. Both had gunshot wounds.
Police say 53-year-old James Joe Thacker was pronounced dead at the scene.
Thacker's nephew, 37-year-old Danny Joe Thacker, was taken to UK Hospital. He was listed in critical condition as of Monday afternoon.
Police say just before 6 p.m. Sunday, they got a call from a driver on U.S. 25 in the southern part of Richmond.
The caller reported hearing gunshots while driving by a car, that had pulled off to the side of the road.
When police got to the scene, they say they found two men, both shot once in the head.
Richmond Police say they still have many unanswered questions.
"At this point, we're trying to determine whether it's a murder-suicide or a double suicide," Richmond Police Major Robert Mott said. "We've got one weapon that we've recovered and we're trying to determine how it was used."
Both men have previously been booked in the Madison County Detention Center.
Jail records show Danny Thacker was most recently charged with theft by unlawful taking and unlawful transaction with a minor.
Records show James Thacker was most recently charged with theft by unlawful taking.
The car the men were found in has since been impounded by police as evidence.
Richmond Police say they do not believe anyone else was involved in the shooting. They say they are not looking for any suspects.

I think you're wrong. I think people were making posts stating their opinion and asking questions when she jumped in telling people they can't post about HER family. I suspect she's posted about many others. At any rate, no one is really wanting to hear from her at all, but your advice to her is good anyway - stfu.

Hold up! You people should be ashamed. It's obvious you have no respect for the dead or dying but at least show compassion for the living. Neither one of those men raped anyone. EVER. For Jesus sake, don't open your traps if you don't know what the truth is. And NO, this was NOT over pills. Assuming makes you look like an ass when the truth does come out. Drugs had nothing to do with this.
Did your mothers never teach you that if you can't say something nice then say nothing at all?
Michelle hon, don't let these clueless people get to you. The family and friends know the truth. You can bet the ones making such nasty accusations have plenty of people in their own lives who have made mistakes and landed in trouble, and I'm sure some of them have themselves. Just don't bother trying to explain anything else to them, they aren't worth it just go be with the family girl, they need you.
In fact, I think it's time to have Topix take this thread down since it's starting to be filled with lies and slander.
shut it down, we just start another one. michelle is the one being ignorant. Hell fire, this a public forum. We discuss what we want to.

Dear Erica Gabbard,
Can you not read? No one has been "bashing" the 2 men involved in the shooting last night.
1. Most of the posts on here are telling you they are sorry for your famlies loss.

2. As a general concensus of this board most people are telling you that you should love your family no matter what they have or have not been involved in, thats what family does.

3. Your 2 family members were both shot on the side of US highway 25 RIGHT OUTSIDE of town ON A BUSY ROAD, not in the privacy of your/their backyard! A passing motorist called in he/she heard shots fired. THEY COULD HAVE KILLED AN INNOCENT PERSON! This happened in a public place (State right-of-way to be exact) I passed by this same location not 5-10 minutes before this happened. An innocent person such as myself/myfamily/my neighbor/ANYONE could have been shot!

I am sorry for the families loss. We all love our family no matter what they have done, or at least you should. I guess that is why it is so unbelievable a nephew would shot and kill his uncle, or vise versa. Again, could have been my family member. We all all have family that does things we don't approve of and we still love them, thats what family is all about. Prayers gong out to the family because this act has hurt your family in ways that cannot be imagined. As for you Erica, you trashy trailor park cussing is not representing yout family well. For the sake of your family, clean it up.

4. These are the facts as reported:
