This may not be all there is to this story. Family would be wise to exhume the body for poisoning tests.

You must be careful about what you say about people and they have a record. Do you recall when Mayor Deese was running for mayor, she allegedly made a comment about his past run ins with the law? Well look who's mug shot is all over the news now?

What goes around comes around.

I remember being the recipient of a lot of her trash talk also. I chose the high road and ignored her.

Remember the letter to the editor supposedly by her "Aunt Cora" from Wingate. Not to mention people coming up to me telling me the lies she was spreading about me.

One reaps what one sows.

Ms. Councilwoman, ex-mayor Whitley is highly respected at her place of employment, the First Baptist Church of Wadesboro. Indeed, if her name is mentioned in front of a member of that particlar flock the defenses are brandished like swords ready for battle.

They are sure that this accusation is a simple case of family jealousy.

After all, they say, didn't Ms. Councilwoman, ex-mayor Whitley and her spouse offer loving care to the infirmed aunt in question for over 2 years? Didn't they nurse her and see to her needs? Mr. Whitley, the Wadesboro Baptists will tell you, was not only her closest surviving male relative but he was her closest relative since he lived next door.

Where were those two nieces? A long way off say the Wadesboro Baptists. They rarely called or visited.

Surely the Aunt meant for her worldly possessions to go to her closest male relative who incidently lived next door and took care of her in her twilight say the First Baptists of Wadesboro.

Oh, and that will, that piece of paper. The Aunt dictated it to Ms. Councilwoman, ex-mayor Whitley you know.

That's what the First Baptists of Wadesboro say.

Who are the First Baptists of Wadesboro? A select few or the entire church?

The new, shiny turquoise newspaper box selling the Marshville Home stands in front of the CVS Drugstone along US 74 just a few blocks from where Mrs Whitley lived before going to meet her maker. The lead story is about the so called forged will and the actions of Ms councilwoman, former mayor Denise Whitley (the accused).

There were two wills to be probated. The first named the nieces as heirs. It was duly signed and even notarized. The second will was presented within days of Mrs Whitley's passing and named Ms councilwoman, former mayor and her spouse as heirs. It was witnessed by 2 odd characters in Marshville lore. Before it reached probate someone noticed or questioned Mrs Whitley's signature. A comparison showed a discrepency and the second will was quickly withdrawn. We assume by Ms. councilwoman, former mayor Whitley who stood to inherit a cool mil.

--Will the grand jury question those 2 strange witnesses who supposedly witnessed Mrs Whitley's (the deceased) signature?

--Will they perjure themselves?

--Who hired attorney and all around Marshville good guy Bobby Griffin and how is he involved?

--Will the Home include Ms councilwoman, former mayor Whitley's other transgressions including her weird defense of her teen niece's now famous slow speed chase in the next issue?

Stay tuned!

So is all quiet concerning this? It sure seems to be squelched, especially by the Anson County paper and people. This very night she is making decisions concerning the future of the town of Marshville. And imagine how she feels, having such a charge hanging over her head? What kind of good decisions can someone with their future in jeopardy be making? Does she even care about Marshville? Or is it still just the big vendetta against the police department that has colored her entire first two years back in office? I agree with Mr. Pickens, stay tuned. Don't nod off, something will happen soon.
