It seems Troy tries not to inform the pubic.
We never did hear more about the break in stabbing in Troy.
Makes you wonder what we really don't know!

town leaders in the surrounding area have been doing that for years. it's no surprise, their all shady, always have been. so many things get swept under the carpet. they fear their tax dollars will up and move to a truly safer town.

The person this artical is about (if you've kept up with the case) doesn't really have anything against him. He was caught without incident by the DEA. The woman who claims to be the victim kept allowing him to come over to her house every night for drinks in the hot tub...one night he may have gotten a little frisky, but who's to say she didnt want it then and is regretting it now. That's what you call a one night stand. I know the person the artical is about...and I know he was a little forward, but if she would have just said no to him, he would have backed off. He has like 4 kids. He knows when to keep his cool. There are over 120 people that he has worked with in the past several years who would attest to my side of the story who need tohave his back for him. He's not a bad guy.

represent him in court then, lol. Who cares? read the other comments. no one mentions the particular crime. the discussion really is nothing about Mr. hot tub lover. it's about how these towns hide reported crimes from the community.

I worked with this man for a few years. We also hung out AS FRIENDS on several occasions. Unless he has drastically changed, there is no way on earth that he would do something like this. I am a female, and I NEVER felt uncomfortable around him, or witnessed any "strange" behavior. We worked in an office together that was the size of a broom closet. He never made any sort of pass at me (or anyone else) while in my presence. My kids loved talking to him when they would call my work. He is extremely funny and really does a heart of gold. The one thing that he talked about the most were his kids. He was always giving me updates about them and showing anyone who would look, pictures of his kids or bringing them in to work to show them off (very proud father). If I were called today to speak on his behalf, I would not think twice about it. I have spoken with a couple of our prior co-workers (female) about this. They are in COMPLETE shock (as I am), and know that he is a great person and is not capable of these things. Like I said, unless he is just a completely different person than he was a few years ago, there is NO WAY that he would take advantage of a female!!!! I hope that the truth comes out, especially for his childrens' sake. p.s. Before anyone says it, no I am not fat or ugly. You would think that if he were a pervert, he would have at least tried to make SOME kind of move on me. NOT ONCE!!!!

He is guilty....the drug screening showed that there was GHB in her system. I have personally met this scum bag, and it doesn't surprise me to hear this. He is a total low life. And there are more than one person coming forward about separate incidents. Coincidence? I think not. The evidence is there...he's GUILTY!!!!!
