Billy Allsobrooks was always a sweetheart he had great manners and he always had a smile on his face when he came over to see Clay Harvey and Jesse Garrison my son and step son they were good friends.They haven"t seen to much of each other since we moved from Joslin Branch in Whitebluff. But I was sadden to here this terrible news it breaks my heart.My heart goes out to the Allsobrooks. And to the man that took a young special life May the gates of hell be waiting after you go through hell on earth. Thanks Martha Harvey Hamm

theres no reason for killin billy or shootin jimmy that wouldnt be the the first time jimmy or billy was asked to leave a party but they werent ever shot at or anyone left dead.. I think any of us who grew up with those boys including myself have gotten rowdy and out of hand and here i sit with my wife and kids and where does that leave his family!!! In the end you dont know sh--! Im a bluff boy born and raised and so was they sounds to me like your a b---- out of pocket and you need to get some get right!!!

Wow ! It is hard for me to beleave my best friend is gone . I am sure his kids and wife fell the same way . Well I just want to get this stright so a jimmy pushed a girl another man GETS a gun then billy trys to protect his brother beacuse this guy gets a gun . raines kills billy and shoots jimmy.Keep in mind billy and jimmy dont have any weapons. hmmmm! Well I know this we use to be men in White Bluff if we had a problem we stepped out in the yard and took care of the problem and got up shook hands .I guess now we just get a gun and just shoot an unarmed man if we are scared . What a shame. I ask that we all look up the word coward.

Maybe you should blame your WONDERFUL crack head cousin Jimmy for getting Billy killed. He is a true waist of a human being

Billy worked for me years ago installing siding and windows. Worked his butt off every day and never complained. Didn't know Jimmy well, but had talked to him on several occasions. Not originally from the bluff but was married and raised two kids there and in Burns. Knew Bubba (Raines) also and never really thought of him as dangerous. Breaks my heart for all involved and only hope everyone is healing and moving forward in life but will always feel horrible for Billy's family.
