I hope they catch him and give him the death penalty. He is an awful person. He needs to be caught before he kills again. We all know that Ashburn is not very capable of catching criminals.

hi country girl, I'm from another county and don't know very much about this case. But from what I've heard I agree with you, that fool needs to be in jail. So best of luck to Ashburn and Turner Co. on catching him. Take Care, Cuzs Leroy

Feel sorry? Why? This man killed a man or is that something you want to just sweep under the rug as most crimes in Ashburn are done! Tell the kids the truth; if the fact of how the parents are haven't affected them yet; what makes you think this will!

Country girl- It's not that Ashburn isn't capable of catching criminals; just that most are in the middle and no one wants to embarrass their families. This whole county is an embarrassment!

Actually- I feel more sorry for the man he killed and dumped! DUMPED PEOPLE!!! How do you explain to the family that has to swallow the fact that Holley shot this man and just tossed him out on the side of the road as he was nothing more than trash! If he has children- what should they tell them? I feel sorry for the family that has to bury him cause they have no choice, but to deal with it! To where the Holley family was dumped just as quick, but not from death- just from a killer that abandon his own family cause of no backbone of facing the truth!

I do feel really bad for Holley's children-not cause of their father doing something awful to another human, but for him doing the awful thing of tossing them to the side just as he did this man! He left them behind- maybe he should have done us all a favor and just come clean with what he did! Maybe he could change this awful thing into something better for at least the family of the man. How would you feel if your friend, family, husband, brother, son or whatnot was killed and dumped like this man? Closure is something everyone needs- maybe you need to think more of them!

I wouldn't tell them nothing more than the truth- their father killed a man and left them behind to take the heat and pain! What else is there to tell?

I understand that Mr. Holley was a good family man until he got involved with drugs. When drugs get ahold of you, they take over your life. I just read where he was found in Cordele. My heart aches for both families.

Whoever is thinking about experimenting with crank, or other drugs; think about it first - do you want this to happen to you or your family??

I understand that with his last name... lots think he was a good man before drugs. You must not know this man cause this man has always done drugs; regardless how many want to think he was this great person that was a great dad and a great son... well he might be in their eyes, but in the friends and people that knew the real man behind the name... well we know that he has always drank and smoked... the hard drugs... well not sure when all that took place cause I knew years ago that he was headed in the wrong places... look here... must have been correct cause he has set himself free with a simple shot to the head! Not bad enough he dumped a man after his death and left his children behind without even letting them know the answers that everyone wants to know, but he didn't even give them the chance to understand his side of the story. Not to mention the fact of the man he dumped as if he was pure trash... his family will never know the truth of why their son was murder and dumped!
Personally speaking... I don't think he actually did it... I think another guy did it, but who am I to think any different than what Mr. Holley has shown us cause to me... he showed that he was guilty with the single shot to his head. Man he must have been a real good man at one time; cause he is a Holley and a Holley is someone that stands tall.

Most the Holley's are just that... outstanding folks and hard workers, but as every other family around the world... sometimes a few seeds get lost... I think Nathan got lost a long time ago... he just didn't have a clue what he truly wanted... guess he never will.

Tell them sister! I hate this website. people are allowed to gossip behind a screen name. If you knew him personally you wouldn't be so quick to judge and assume what really happened. God willing one day his family will also have some closure! This was very tragic to both families. Pray that you never have to live with this kind of pain!

That little town is known for it's small minds that have nothing better to do than gossip. So sad since the majority of them are "Christians". Things that make you go "hmmmmm".

Reminds you of the Lamar Whiddon. One place women saying they were molested by him when they were kids then he was behind Robert Lee Wright Jr being shot in the back unarmed outnumbered back in 1985-86. Then he lied at the civil trial. BEST year Lamar died terrible cancer say KARMA. I wouldn't have given his nephew racist ems no respect when he got crushed in that ems june 6 '13 accident cause they murdered that man didn't five him. RESPECT. Bragged too. So Ashburn is known for white men molesting and all kinds filth in the name of god of course!

Karma....Really??? Was it karma for his 11 year old granddaughter to watch him slowly suffer from his cancer, getting sicker and sicker until he passed away, leaving a huge hole in her heart. Was it Karma for me to lay awake every night for weeks crying from missing my Papa so much because he was my best friend. As Sheriff Lamar Whiddon's granddaughter, I will not accept the slander of his name by someone who hides behind the stories of others and a username like hypocrites. He did not shoot Robert Lee Wright Jr. but he was in the pursuit of an escaped prisoner, which you failed to mention in your accusation. You can Google Sheriff Lamar Whiddon and it will pull up the official court report, if you need to brush up on your facts. In the future, try to think before you post unfounded gossip about someone's family, because it's not only hurtful but also makes you look IGNORANT!!!
