theres no way they are innocent!!did u see there pics on the news they were injured from shooting the gun.well 2 of them were!!
The pictures make them guilty boy are u a judger or what? What would you do if someone shot at you and you had way of defending yourself? I guess you would just stand there and take it, not.That is yet to be determined what exactly happened and why they went there in the first place. So don't throw guilt by pictures, untill you have heard the whole truth (JUDGE NOT LEAST YE BE JUDGED) so i would really watch i say about others so it dont come home to you 10 times worse/

it doesn't matter if it concerned drugs, these four came to his home armed, they shot him first, he was trying to defend his home and children and these sick assholes shot him in front of his 8 year old daughter. now she has nobody because of these supposed good ol boys! think about that before you start defending your 'friends'. a little girl is crying herself to sleep every night because her daddy is gone. sick bastards, i hope they fry them!!!
You don't know what happened and you are totally wrong and it sad about the kids but they are I know 4 other kids crying themselves to sleep and praying for their dads,and they didn't shoot first so you might want to end that garbage right now. unless you were standing there and withholding from the authorities what you know,cause no one saw what happened. I have talked to the right people who know forensics isn't wrong. So tell what you may but you better get it straight,these web sights are now being pulled into court on divorces and investigations.

Okay, you people are dumb. How do you know what happened? How can you know what happened if you weren't there to witness the whole thing. So before you go pointing fingers saying who shot the man I think the only people who really know what happened and what went down are the guys who were there. So it'd be nice if you'd stop judging people there is ONLY ONE person who can judge anyone and that's God. So stop pointing fingers. Unless you were there you don't know anything that happened. And as for Matt Arnold, whoever is saying he knew what was going down, why would he run from Florida to go to Tennessee to kill some man and get in more trouble? Doesn't add up. So before you go pointing your dirty fingers make sure your facts are straight.

Ok I correct myself they shot him once and he started running inside to get his gun and they shot him two more times how do u think he got shot in the back
well your story here just proves he shot first then cause according to what you are saying he never made it to the house and he must have already had a gun when he came out cause he shot them.So he had to have a gun already. I think you need to hush.

my parents retired to washburn and when my mom fell ill and had to use a strong pain med her doc recomened she fill it in knoxville away from anyone that would know her due to pill heads in washburn, I sold my parents house and moved them away from that nasty lil area. i agree washburn is a nice looking place until u live there, very clanish even church goers not friendly unless u were from there,very backwoods types.
Oh i also kinda knew one of the murders billy he would try to do odd jobs for my folks didnt trust him then and didnt he about kill a girl a while back?
You probably didn't know Billy and their is more than one Billy Nicely. No he didn't about kill a girl or anybody else. I love how ever body knows everything about Billy or any of the rest of these men. Billy tried to do odd jobs for your parents, when? Had to over 9 years ago. Billy is no murderer and I hope you read about the new law on these topix and chats. Slander and defemation of character, can carry a sentence of up to 8 years and no less than 1 and the one being slandered can sue for millions,so keep it up and I know Billy alot better than anyone on this stupid sight. I am sick of people running their mouths and act like they know so much and don't know nothing. I am Billy's wife and I am going to make sure the lawyers pull some of you know it all liers into court.

where did you get that information from? I know what your saying sure doesn't match what i was told by officals. And my God now what your saying sounds like their was a mishap before. The witness who heard the shots said he heard 3 or 4 total If there had been 22 shots fired the whole neighbor hood would have heard it. And their sure would have had to been some kind of automatic rifles not the kind of guns I was told was used.

well I know Tbi has all the phone records of everyone and yeah stephen was the whole reason Matt wanted to go over there. After 10 calls he got fed up and went to buy something from the man, that is why stephen followed them cause Matt was going to get steven one also, but they didn't get nothing but shot and stephen was pissed cause he didn't get a pill. I won't say any thing more enough has been said but if you have true information about this case or you really know someone who does.Contact TBI and tell them. Ask for special Agent J.J. Sipos you can find his number in the blue pages under TENNESSEE BUREAU OF INVESTIGATIONS and ask to speak to the main agent over the case in grainger county concerning greg johnson,as I will not reveil his information without his permission,and it is saturday and I can't get a hold of him today. But this is his case so have the respect to contact the one who counts in this case and see that true justice is served and all are brought in that belong there and not just place blame and judgement for it is not your place to do that. Since this man was such a good friend to some of you, stop covering for the people who started the whole thing and call the TBI so that all may be brought in and justice served and punishments given to all involved. And I haven't slandered anyone and won't. I know what I know and their are probably some reading this trying to figure out a way to get rid of me and plotting against me but I have never been afraid of much of anything in my life and I sure am not afraid now.If you don't have time to contact this agent don't worry I have done told him about this sight and I will bring him up to date on what is being said and such, so he go ahead and start pulling an IP address for all you people withholding evidence. cause I know he hasn't heard alot of what on here. Sad, very sad. The whole case is sad.

<quoted text> well now!! they had a few days of freedom there!!!and a few beers some pills an now lets chit!!! chat!!! dont u quess!!! and billy has a mean side!! he dont care one bit!!! too knock a woman up side the head!!dont think theres much too any man that would strike a woman!!!
I should not even respond to your stupidity but I can't help it you don't Billy. I am his wife been with him for 10 years and we have never had no more than a few words, he has never laid a finger on me to hurt me in any way. I was with them after all this happened up till the minute he went to jail and he wasn't drinking and sure didn't have any pills. So till you know what your talking about shut your mouth and before you start saying anything else, you should know that your IP address can be pulled and you can be brought to court in this matter and further court for slander. I am going to make sure all you know it alls are checked.Billy would never hurt someone unless they were trying to hurt, him first. And he would never hit a woman, Unless she had a weapon and it meant his life and anyone who really knows him, knows that. So when you learn to tell the truth you can tell it untill then I suggest you read what is wrote and not respond.

Truth is not slander. The truth will stand when the world is on fire. I study law and I have more sense than to slander someone. They seem to be the ones running their mouths all over town. And it don't matter what you think. I know what I know.How would you know they had nothing to with this,maybe you should just stay out of it now, while you still can. I haven't said anything I can't prove without reasonable doubt, to the right people and the rest of these people have, so put that in your pipe and smoke. There is the difference in slander and not slander. WITHOUT A REASONABLE DOUBT CAN BE PROVEN. Don't feel alone there are more on here just like you and even the newspapers have printed straight out lies, which is most definately slander and defemation of character.sounds like alot of people on here was even there when it happened and never picked up their cell phone to call for help. HUM!!!

You straight up called him a murderer, which he isn't and then try to implicate he almost killed a girl. Billy is a really great person if you are good to him he will be good to you. We have bent over backwards to try to help other people and most of the time it was trying to help them get off drugs. Most can't do it alone and everytime we have helped someone we have ended up in trouble somehow. We have took more than several people into our home that lost everything they had over drugs, so they would have a place to lay down at night and something to eat. Everytime we have got the bad end of the stick but we still tried to help people. Billy is a wonderful person when you really know him and not listen to people who don't. If I thought for one minute he would just drive up to this mans house and cold blood murder him, I would not defend him, I would be like the rest the people on here. I know better something went terribly wrong that day, Greg Johnson was lied to before they ever got there. There is a few other people still out there that will obviously stop at nothing and take no ones life into consideration, before they act just to get a pill. My husband is not that type of person. People in Grainger county please watch who you're letting be around you or your kids.
