we knew James years ago and even bought his old orange and white truck. We are so sorry to hear of this tragedy, since one reason he moved to Rockmart was to be "safe". We remember you fondly James.

Why are they letting people in and out of the crime scene when there is still an ongoing investigation?

The crime scenen has been cleared and documented. It does not need to be closed unitl the end of the investigation.

A crime scene is only a part of the investigation.

We have known James for over 20 years, bought his old house when he moved to Rockmart to be safer. He was always a good guy, loved to talk and tinker in his shop. James will be missed. For James to be murdered, someone really had to trick him and get the drop on him, he was street wise and was well protected all the time.
Let this be a lesson to all of us. Trust few.
