My sympathy goes to Charlies wife Leeann and his Family.
I only hope that Ken Qualls does not get away with another murder. He got away scott free with the first shooting.
Qualls thinks he is a bigshot in this town and thinks he can get away with everything, I hope not this time) the bastard needs to be executed. He had no reason or right to kill Charlie.
QUALLS IS A MURDERER.
God will make sure he pays this time.
MAY CHARLIE REST IN PEACE AND MAY HE KNOW THAT HE WILL BE REMEMBERED .
MY ADVICE TO LEEANN IS SUE THE NO GOOD BASTARD FOR EVERYTHING HE HAS< HIS HOMES, BUSSINESS, VEHICLES AND WHAT EVER MONEY THERE IS.

Ken Qualls needs to pay for the torture he has put our entire family through. He should have hell on earth now and in his afterlive! No one can take back what has been done to Lee or Charlie. Lee has lost her husband and her everything. Charlie was her life and our family is completely devistated at the unfortunate loss of our family member. Charlie was a great husband and friend to everyone. This family or his friends will not rest until Ken pays for this with his life. Law enforcement should make an example of him and have him be punished for the way the has done Charlie and the other unfortunate person before. People shouldnt be allowed to just walk around killing people and get away with it. We lost a person very dear to us for a pathetic argument over $80!!!! Charlie was worth sooooo much more to everyone that knew him. Try explaining to his wife that everything is ok! its not and never will be for her or our family. WE WANT KIN TO PAY FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE TO CHARLIE, LEE, AND THE ENTIRE FAMILY AND FRIENDS THAT KNEW HIM.

Why doesn't someone have the balls to tell the truth about "Charlie"? He was NO angel regardless of what some people thought.$80 you say? What about the theft they were arguing about? Crime is crime, whether it's $1 or $1 million. Get real!

I don't see anywhere where Charlie's real character is revealed. Like the times he threatened a man & child that he would "blow their head off" because of a rumor he had heard. Does that sound like a "nice guy" to you?

You only see the public persona that people want to show. There's no way for you to know what's inside the heart of a person.

What about Ken? He always seemed like a pretty nice guy too. My parents, family, even myself have bought things from their store in the past.I'm sure Kens family is suffering also knowing that his life too is pretty much over now.

Judge not, lest ye be Judged!

This is sad that this had to happen. Charlie was a good person. No one has the right to take another one's life.
I think Ken should have to answer for everything hes done, And yeah , I think his wife should take out a law suit against him, and get what ever she can. No this wont bring Charlie back but, it would show ken . That he cant do just what ever he please's. And think about his wife and family, what they must be going through. All my sympathy goes out to Charlie's family & friends.
May god be with you in this time of lost.

My advice to DEAD MAN WALKING. Take your own advice Judge NOT, lest be judged. The last thing this grieving family needs to hear is negativity from you. Regardless, of what Charlie may have done in the past many people loved him... faults and all, because that's what families do.
What if this was your family member?!!!?
Like we all learn as children.... If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.

I knew Charlie when he was young...I remember how in second grade that his parents were called to the school because he kept trying to pull his fellow classmates pants down so he could see their genitals. And that's just the start! So I love reading about this sainthood that everyone has declared him to have.

ok, clearly he's not the only one with a problem...ANYONE who thinks that is ok, no matter what age is a very disturbed person and being a parent now, if that had happened to my son and the principle and/or teacher allowed it to happen that school would be on this blog explaining why there was a law suit against them.

No-one said it was ok idiot . but that was 20 years ago. Do you think its ok that ken shot Charlie in the head. he wasnt a child molester, you moron. So lets see I guess every kid that acts out inappropriatly in the second grade should be shot in the head. Your comment was just the most brilliant thing I have ever read.(NOT) GET A GRIP. A MAN IS DEAD!!!!!! perfect or not Charlie did not deserve to have a whole put in his head.

For starters, nobody here said he needed to die, I just said he was a piece of trash like the rest of his family. How do I know this? Because he's my half brother. I am one of those kids he tried to "touch" but he got caught before he could. He also has a sister who is missing whom he was suspected of doing the same thing the entire time she was growing up that wasn't 20 years ago. I wear a scar on the side of my head to this day where Paulette tried to kill me when I was 4 months old so spare me your ramblings about the grief this family is going through. Knowing them they are putting on some front just to try and collect insurance money from his death.

Wow, He's No Saint sure put a different spin on things with his post. I had no idea all that was going on in that family.

I sort of knew Paulette many years ago when she worked at a local "truck stop" where skanks hung out. It's no wonder her kids turned out like they did with her as an example to them. Back then she was dating a married man right in front of everyone in town & we all knew. She flaunted it in public & didn't give a crap who saw them together.

I've seen her so lit she could barely walk and what is it with Paulette now writing all those letters to the editor of the local paper about the drug dealers & her missing daughter? When you run with a pack like that you should expect whatever comes your way.

Her daughter was no saint either, a known thief & drug user and since she left with her boyfriend it sounds like a typical teen running away from home & a parent who didn't give a rats ass about any of her children. I hope her girl is in a happier place than what she had to live in at home.

You reap what you sow. Karma and all that stuff too. Maybe they need to be thinking about how they lived their lives and treated and continue to treat others before they start telling people what angels they are & how corrupt everyone else in this town is.
Look into a mirror once in a while and then ask yourself if you did right by your kids before you start accusing everyone else of ruining their lives. Looks like you managed to mess up the kids long before any of this went down.

All you Saint Charlie fans can kiss my ass. I never said the man deserved to die. I said he had threatened a man & his child over a rumor. So that shows he too was capable of doing to someone else what Ken Qualls did to him. My understanding is that both of them did drugs & drank so neither one is better than the other!
To the person who said I might feel different if it were MY family member, well guess what? I've lost a mother,an uncle & a son to murder & guns!!! So shut the fuck up yourself since you know nothing about me. You can get off your Holy High Horse & kiss my ass as you dismount!!!
Half the people who commented are showing their lack of education & what ignorant hicks they are by rambling, misspellings, and typos.
I went to school with Ken & his brother too, so it's not like they were "nice only to someone who spent $ at their store". They were both good kids back then. Life changes people. If Ken is an abuser of drugs, alcohol & also a domestic abuser he certainly needs some mental health help & should have long ago.
Try to comprehend what a person is saying before you open your ignorant hick mouth to reply & make yourselves just look more stupid than we ever thought possible.
Try SPELLCHECK too! Jeez!
OHHHH!!! I guess I pissed you offed.Ha,HA!!! Goal met!!! Damn I'm good!!! It's okay to to attack me. I can defend myself... But leave Charlie alone.

Hey dumbass...there's no such word as "offed".

Keep talking & inserting your foot into your skank mouth!

All you're doing is showing your own ignorance & proving my point that anyone who was a friend or family member of these idiots is also skanky.

The only thing you're good at is making yourself look like a fool. GREAT JOB you stupid Bitch!

i knew both guys all my life. Both had good and bad points. I think the world of ken, and charlie and me had a lot of respect for each other. But I do know this, Charlie and his wife stole money from someone that im really close too and i do know that both dealed with drugs. So all it boils down to is a deal gone bad. I do feel bad for charlies family, just like they found out that his wife just got pregnant, but everyone needs to stop bad mouthing both sides and let it be. The truth will prob never be known.

Boohoo, leave Charlie alone! Screw you & the turd pony you rode in on Bitch.

What is offed? OH, I see,it's your version of OFF in your uneducated,ignorant, hillbilly way of a rant. Yes, it is okay to attack you because you're an idiot with idiotic friends who got themselves in this mess to begin with.

Funny that for someone who is grieving SO MUCH for old Charlie & his nasty family you sure spend a lot of time here with diarrhea of the mouth.

I'm neither good nor a Christian so that lets me off the hook.

You must not be a Christian either or you wouldn't be telling people to keep their mouth shut...which by the way does NOT require capitalization!

Is there NO ONE on this board who can spell or who knows how to use the provided spell check on this forum? LMAO

I doubt most of them can read either so unless someone is reading this to them they won't see it anyway.
