Does anyone know anything about David Woods from this town? I am from Muncie, Indiana, the sight of the murder that he is being charged with. I was just wondering if anyone had contact with him or what he was doing in California.

yes ido i am from daleville area where he and his family resides. david is a very quiet man but i have known him for quite a while now and i do not believe that he is capable of this. he had moved out to cali. for a fresh start after his accident with a semi that almost killed him about a year or two ago. he recieved some settlement $$ and decided to move away. if i had enough $$ i would try to get away from here to.

I just read the court paers that they unsealed today. It doesn't sound very good for either one of these men. It sounds likes the witnesses were afraid for their lives until David Woods left Daleville and then they felt safe coming forward. The Muncie paper says that they have tapes implicating these two men. I feel sorry for the French children. They had to grow up without their mother and now to relive it and possibly be losing their father. Very Sad!!!

It does look like one person's word against another one's, but I guess we don't know what is on the tapes. It is very strange how this all went down 15 years later??? I wonder why, did someone's guilty concious get the best of them or are there other motives? If one of the informants is who I think it is I wouldn't know why he'd care? Woman beater, male chauvenist!

The informants are CRACK HEADS!!! They Was Busted and notw making up this story to save there own Butt's.David is a very caring and giving person from a great family.

Sounds something like MARK MIKENNY Would DO! take the words of CRACK HEADS>>>? Stupid s.o.b.

If Tony French is taped talking about the murder and includes the name David Woods in the tape he must know him. He didn't say "Who?" when the informant said David Woods was running his mouth, he said "What is he saying" That is what the court documents say.But I still find it very hard to believe that we have someone like a "Soprano" growing up and living in this very low crime area.

I wish that posters from Indiana would use proper punctuation and grammar. You are making it seem that Indiana is filled with uneducated people. Daleville is a very small town and I have not heard of anyone getting busted for crack here. Believe me, that would be around as soon as it happened. I have no idea why this case has been reopened and all these new witnesses have came out of the woodwork? It does make you wonder about their credibility. If I knew that I could have prevented the death of the mother of three young kids and did nothing, I would have already commited suicide, instead of waiting 15 years and saying nothing. How those informants could look in the mirror is beyond me?

Daleville is known for it's high crime rate. There are more violent crimes in Daleville per capita than anywhere else in the state.

In the 70's Daleville was known nationwide as a hub for illegal narcotics.

I remember as a youngster growing up there a lady knocking on our door to ask if we had seen her son. They found him two weeks later buried in another kids back yard rolled up in a tent. He was shot in the head.

I don't know what part of Daleville you guys are from... but the Daleville I remember is riddled with drugs, alcoholism, violence and child molestation.

Jesse Woods isn't from Muncie, he's from Daleville. Not sure why he was in California unless he wanted to avoid prosecution.
