To Kim from New Jersey: Mellie (sheriff's wife) called from her cell phone on the way home reporting a suspicious car following her. A deputy (Altman) was dispatched. Mellie pulled in her driveway, the suspects pulled in behind her. She exited, they exited, she was shot, the deputy pulled up, exited, was shot. The sheriff (Johnny Mack)was on the phone with his wife after the 911 call was made. He was on his way, showed up right after Deputy Altman was killed. Other deputies showed up on the scene along with the sheriff and the suspects were killed in a shoot out. I know all of this sounds sooooo suspicious to outsiders, and it's perfect for Hollywood Scandal, but it simply boils down to a terribly tragic event that has touched so many lives in Marianna and the surrounding areas. BTW, my mom and Mellie were good friends, along with the sheriff.

Everyone should read about Hendry County FL Sheriff Cocaine Smuggling History and corruption. Google the Current Hendry County Sheriff race.(Newszap) Everyone thinks every one forgot! this is not the case!
This former Hendry Sheriff (Bob) coincidently just had a letter to the editor of the online Hendry Glades Sunday news Defending a Dyess Sheriff that was also strangely Murdered. The kin Sheriff Dyess that followed was FEDERALLY CONVICTED for Cocaine Smuggling with Falcon and Magluta THE big time Smugglers for the Medellin Cartel.
Now a younger Fred Dyess is trying to have the Dyess name again in control of law enforcement in Hendry County Florida.

It does sound like just something unfortunate and sad when you say it like this, but, when you put the facts in like insurance scam, perpetrators wife murdered years earlier, Johnny Macs involvement, meaning he wouldn't allow Sands wifes death certificate to be signed off as an accident. therefore Sands couln't collect on the life insurance. Its obvious that this was a hit (retaliation) on the MCdANIELS.
