was this simply self defense? or was it something more. i knew the family. yes, problems were between the two men. but i beleive that it was in self defense. rodney wasnt the guy to go and shoot someone over land. rodney was being threatened! anyone that gets threatednd has some sort of defense. rodney always carried a rifle with him. he hardley ever left the house without it.
Because he is a murder... Lets face it..He is a sick one.Tommy was a wonderful person so don't say something about some one unless you knon them.Why did Rodney hide the BODY ....What a coward...,LIER,MURDER...ARE YOU LIKE HIM..WHAY ID RODNEY RUNNING...?????HE WILL HAVE TO ANSWER TO GOD SOME DAY..

Anyone who is sticking up for Rodney you are just as sick in the head as he is!! There was nothing about self defense to the killing...not calling the cops asap, a bullet directly between the eyes, dragging him, hiding him, stuffing him in a well, not apologizing to the family, being on Lyons land that morning, Rodney turning off the water hell I would b outraged too. Sad to know a man lost his life for such an idiotic decision. My prayers r with both family's but I hope Rodney takes time to think about what he took from Lyons Family
dont worry be happy

Oh... Yes.. Your all correct. I am so confident that humans like you seem to eat up what ever you are given..
How do we know if Rodney wasn't doing it out of self defense?
How do we know that Lyon didn't hit his wife or even abused her?
How do we know this? Do you eat up everything the paper tells you?
How entertaining... Jumping to conclusions before anyone really looked into the situation... Making Lyon looking like the victim when it was exactly the opposite.. I wonder how much the community in Milo paid them to make them see the tiresome man be portrayed as the victim?
Do not get me wrong not all humans are like that.
I wonder if the same people who are so easily persuaded by the news would believe it if I wrote an article that told you to jump off the roof or eat some thumb tacks or maybe try some diet that could make you turn into a vixen? It's no surprise America's going to the dogs...
