Debby and Suezq:
This is true that it is Denise Compton, but it is reported incorrectly as being killed on scooter, she was on her brand new motorcycle, when she struck a tree head on and was not wearing helmet. Her present husband was directly behind her and witnessed the accident. She will be missed, my prayers are with the family.Deborah

I was in Montgomery Alabama, when I got a call from my dad. Then he told my mother what had happened. I cried my eyes out, we left there around 3am the next morning. We got back and I went and seen her at Gray's funeral home. It was so hard for me to see her, but I had to just one more time. I have lived with her for 2 years or so. I loved her so much.

s it legal for Judge Tracy Carroll to be married to Lt Billy Flurry who works for the Aiken County Sheriff's Office? LT Flurry has a number of officers who present there case in her courtroom for warrants, arrests, hearings, trials, etc. It's hard to believe that she is able to conduct impartial and independent hearings given that she's sleeping with law enforcement. This just doesn't seem right from an ethical point of view? Can anyone help Aiken? This explains why they use two different last names.

Iam sorry for your loss. i live out of town but used to work with Denise and I too loved her as a friend. I wondered what she was doing on a scooter. A motorcycle sounds more like her. God bless you and everyone in her family.
