I've independently investigated this incident and the truth behind Cleo Wright's murder will never be told - too many well-known local names involved.

As a seasoned traveler, I can say with certainty that the most corrupt and ignorant people in the world are right here in Sikeston, Missouri.

It's truly astounding to see so much ignorance concentrated in one town,(blacks and whites - stupid is equal opportunity).

Yeah. Several years ago, the stores at the Sikeston Outlet mall seemed to always call security on black people. The professional shoplifting rings caught on and used black members to distract security while the white members stole the stuff. LOL! What ignorance!
