It wasn't exactly faulty information. There was an expectation by those involved with DJ turning himself in. The information was given to her by those who helped set up the arrest conditions. She was specifically told the arrest IS IMMINENT! In other words, she posted information based on being told it is, in fact, going down! The fault was not hers. Let's clear that up right now. The arrest should have taken placed and secured before she was contacted by the involved parties. That was the big mistake. They were overly confident Jones would follow through.
In my opinon, she handled this upset, which was beyond her knowledge and control, appropriately. She withdrew the story, apologized and explained, in detail, what took place. That's accountable.
As for DJ himself, he is literally enjoying his freedom. He is continuing to troll the community. The last ordeal involved entering a tanning salon with only 1 female employee present. He entered the booth and apparently, did not activate the tanning bed. The employee knew who he was. When she realized his time was running out and the bed had not been turned on, she called the owner. He had Mr. Jones leave without incident. What was he doing in there? He's an opportunist. Pure speculation, but not unrealistic, to consider he had ulterior motives. Let's be grateful the owner handled the situation without incident.
At this point, I don't believe he will turn himself in. The DA is not stepping up in this case. He has a history of plea deals. I suspect this is why there is no arrest. Not sure what's in it for him.
Don't shoot the messenger. She's doing her job to the best of her abilities with what she has to work with. Not even local papers are covering this story.
If you don't trust the source of the information, that is your decision. I'm not here to convince or change minds. There are quite a few from Tullahoma posting on the forum to shed light on behind the scenes. Most (there will always be hell razers) who find her information to be spot on, based on what they know and hear.
For those who are interested, please go to blinkoncrime.com That is where I'm getting details from. There is also information that cannot be made public, as told by Blink and to Blink, that would compromise the case. That's true in most murder investigations. She shares what she can.

I actually have never posted to that blog or any other until now.
I do follow some of these blogs but only as they pertain to this area. There has been and is still much misinformation being released via social media and several blogs. Contrary to what you may believe I am not a Shannon Moser hater nor am I a fan. I live in the Franklin Co./Tullahoma area and am well aware of the facts. It’s my job.
In your reply you stated that the information Ms. Moser received wasn’t “exactly” faulty. What does that mean? Either it was or it wasn’t. Regardless of where Ms. Moser got her information, it was not accurate. I posted that she was premature in her post… this means that though an arrest may be imminent, it hadn’t happened yet.
I am extremely grateful that a suspect has been taken into custody. We should all pray that the state can build a stronger case against this individual and any others that may have been involved.

We are in agreement about the arrest. It's long over due.

Thank you for responding and providing insight on how the information is being relayed on social media. It's a given it will be misconstrued, embellished, or misrepresented.

Do you consider Moser's piece, factual and somewhat misleading to her posters? I'd like to know b/c I've been reading at that site. I try to keep an open mind and question her sources. She's notorious for not following through on promised follow ups or presenting information AFTER it's ok to do so. Her threads on Caylee Anthony is a perfect example. She promised once the case was over, she would provide shocking information that wasn't made public. It never happens. She claims she has sources directly linked to case investigations. In other words, she's getting the inside scoop and schooled on what she can and can't post. Is this an ethically run site, in your opinion or does someone have an inflamed ego?

Perhaps this is why much of her coverage on various cases are cryptic. Sometimes, it feels like a person is reading an alien magazine. Writing in this manner reduces accountability but makes her look like a genius. She's clever. She's lost a lot of credible posters with solid judicial backgrounds, including seasoned lawyers. They may have left because of her lack of integrity and stand offish qualities that comes across in her personality. Still, she's one of the best and knowledgeable crime bloggers out there. If there are better ones, I'd love to know about them.

It's refreshing to have someone present their thoughts without bashing or becoming vitriol. Appreciate you're sharing what you know and correcting misleading information.

She also posts on her own blog as Christina Stoy.

Honestly, I was extremly skeptical of her at first. I am impressed at the amount of information she does get her hands on. Ms. Moser ( and most other blogers) are doing all their research via the internet and in some cases the telephone. There is much interest in these kinds of cases and she gives people a vehicle to express their views and vent their frustrations. Unfortunately, there are people that give her blog the same credibility as a valid news source. When a "reporter" interjects their opinions and speculations into a story it becomes more about facilitation and less about information. That is what blogs are I guess. Again, I have no real opinion of Ms. Moser or Stoy or "B" or whatever. That blog is her hobby and her passion. It apparently was very therapeutic for Mrs. Sharpton. It does serve a purpose.
On another note, I do want to say God bless you Kelly Sharpton. You are a woman with unbelievable strength. I continue to pray for you and your family and I am confident in our system and I know Sheriff Fuller, General Taylor and all involved will make sure justice is served.

I've heard, and I'm not claiming this as fact or truth, that the guy made bail already. A bonds place took his bond only because it wasn't a murder charge......the source said they got the info from someone who works in the dept.

You've been posting on the blink site, obviously. Ms. Moser? You seem to be more familiar with this site, before Megan's murder. Are you a scorned poster, perhaps? Felt left out and maybe started a blog to hate on other crime bloggers, like Valhall?
Very suspicious. You're opinion is strong if you just acquainted yourself with her site. Things aren't adding up here, dude.
No. A little research goes a long way. I just like to know where the information is coming from. "Valhall"? I have no idea who that is, nor do I really care. As I have stated, Ms. Moser has a blog. I obviously think it has some value or I would not have read it to begin with. Ms. Moser is obviously passionate about seeing justice is done and I applaud her for that. My only concern is when folks are reading and posting information as a fact (referring to posters more so than Ms. Moser) things get hectic and it causes more harm than good. I am impressed with the amount of information she receives. One could almost believe she is a local. However, that much information NEEDS some kind of filter to segregate fact from fiction.

This is very well said.
