I know that it was 4 men that killed Donny Lawson and not 3. The third one is Lonnie Angel Jr but they have not arrested him. This is, once again, the work of our good old boy Sheriff. I am sure this is another one of those deals where you stay on the run until its time for you to go to court to get a bond. He will come to court and be given a bond, which he will make, and pitiful Little Lonnie does not stay in jail. He is a disgrace to this community and I think everyone is afraid of him because of his size. He has been a bully since grammer school! We live in a county with no laws right now and everyone is talking about it. I worked in that jail when Bob Swafford was Sheriff and I didnt think it could be worse, but it is. I have friends down there who tell me. I also see drug deals in the middle of town, people calling the Sheriffs Department to be told we have no one to send. Where are the deputies we pay? Is everyone working nights? During the day they all sit on the porch of the jail. In all my years of living in Pikeville, I have never seen the law so out of control. None of us are safe. Next August I pray we undo what we have done.

You can get all of the information if you go in any little store in this town. I was told at JJs Market. It is also on the news channels web sites. I dont know how the fight started or who did what, but it was 4 men who beat him to death and 4 warrants wrote. Its only the one man that has not been arrested and he knows he should be in jail with the other men. The one post is right about its just because its Lonnie Angel. Big Loser...go figure.

Looks like the Sheriff could arrest a killer on the loose !!! Its not like he is Sadam. Damn! At least do your job for once out of this 4 year term you were given. I agree with the change next year. We all need to fix this mistake.

Enough is enough. Lonnie Lee should have already been in jail, and this man would still be alive. I sure wouldnt be walking around a free man if i had been into half the stuff he has.

I just found out that the US Marshalls came to Pikeville last night, and Lonnnie Lee was arrested. I can guarantee this would not have happened if the TBI was not involved. The TBI officer even took the warrants on the 4 men. Bigmama is right about Lonnie Lee should have been in jail already. He is a thug, and belongs in prison. I am surprised that someone has not shot him for all the fighting he has done in the past. I guess because Howard Upchurch worked him for a while he escaaped some of the problems in the past but the Judge finally saw him for what he was a got rid of him as well. You lay down with the dogs and you will get fleas. Glad our local Judge threw the dog off his farm!

Give the sheriff a break. He is doing his job. Don't be so critical. I hear he was the one that called in TBI and the US Marshalls. He knew what to do. GIVE HIM A BREAK!!!!!!!!!! Good Job Mr. Morris.....

Because of the trial? We should have educated and trained police officers who can work crimes. How many shootings and burglarys and thefts have gone without investigation and prosecution? Should we call the TBI for every crime that is comitted? I doubt they would come to every call. A car wreck, then call the Highway Patrol, a murder, call the TBI, what about the local law enforcement? Maybe we can save some tax dollars and just use the Highway Patrol and TBI. Useless. Just plain as tits on a boar hog. Good for nothing. People in this county having to take out warrants against people stealing from them instead of the local Sheriffs Dept doing the job and prosecuting these criminals. And a new jail? Hell, they dont need the one they have. No one gets arrested. I am telling you all we are living in a county with no laws being enforced. Be prepared to protect what belongs to you and your family. Calling the law sure wont get you any help. Bob Swafford please come and fight to get your job back!

Yes, he knew what to do because he is an idiot! He has no idea what a sheriff even is. Real police officers get a good laugh daily because of him.

I am sick and sad to hear the things I am hearing about this murder. I am sorry you lost your brother. I know sometimes rumors are not true but its pretty hard to make some things up. I dont know exactly what these men did to your brother but the public needs to know so they will know what they are capable of. Most people know how Lonnie Angel is, but I am shocked that things went this far. I to contribute these acts to a lack a law enforcement, a judge not being harsh in his punishments, and people just plain looking over what Lonnie Lee does. None of these men are good men. I have never heard a good word said about any of them. I know they will answer to the Lord someday but we have to enforce the laws of our land. I think the Sheriff is a joke, but guess what people? Its not funny any more. The laugh is over. The drunk trail riding needs to stop. We need an honest, intelligent and accountable man to be our lead law man. Not a special education graduate in a cowboy hat that only knows how to cheat you on the sale or trade of an old horse!
