Joe Woodard is the one running our county and Mike is the one collecting the check... another new vehicle??? hmmm maybe there is money going somewhere else like in his pockets... seems like everyone would quit worrying about $5,000 from bizzies getting stolen and start worrying about what a shit-hole our county has become since that crater-face lie-bag took over!!!!!! and for christ's sakes who cares if he was being humane when he shot the animal to so called "Putting it out of its misery" he probably got off on it!! sickooo! all of the letters of praise for it were not even from here sounds like mike mailed those in to me too! and if you are a long time resident here i know you have to remember the girl with aids that supposedly killed herself with his gun.. the Hawks girl.. fishy... very fishy...!!!!

Who was the person who let him out?I heard his Dad is a reserves officer who works for the Sherrif Department.If this was my son,I would want the case re-opened.

Not sure if case is closed. We were told that the boy who put him out of the car was not related to anyone on the MCSD but I have heard Joe Woodard was his uncle.

I knew him well and he didn't deserve to die this way. But the ones involved are not men enough to admit to it. But their bragging might get them somewhere..................An eye for an eye says the good book.....

Maybe when election time comes around we will remember things like this and vote for someone who will reopen cases and do something about them. Just dont vote for one of our good ole boys see what it has gotten us, as for me I will not vote for one of our own this time around, I am sick to death of seeing families go through these unsloved crimes and disapperances. Its a shame but its the truth......

I think you know what been going on and I agree with you. There are some good people in JC that would do that but getting them to run is the problem. They are fed up with the goings on. And there are family issues linked with the case and thats why nothing is ever done.

Very Good Point! Thats what i always thought but in this town i guess not. It looks like to me that laws in this county can be changed at will, when ever someone feels like changing them.

Yea,he should be held accountable.Why could he not have called for a deputy to pick this guy up?I mean, when someone is racing causes a crash, they are held accountable aren't they?
