I know. I've been thinking about him. Why does this kind of crap keep happening to my favorite people?

Brown Thrasher?
He used to be my neighbor. Never liked the bastard. Anyway for the record, he was murdered by his roommate, who swore it was BT that saved his life with counselling.(He truly was a substance abuse counselor at the VA here). The dude shot him twice with a 50 cal. pistol at close range. Been a couple years ago. I'll try to find the news article.

It IS true. I knew BT well. I introduced him to the Cellar. I was sorry later, but I did. I'm gonna try to find thr article and post it. You know how small town Newspapers are. I never heard another word about it after that. Carl, the guy who shot him called 911 and told them to please come help his friend that he had been shot. And hurry. He waited till the cops arrived and surrendered peacefully. I knew Carl well from the VA. He had attempted suicide a few years before and survived.

He shot himself in the mouth by the way. Crazy. VN vet. Point man for army. Only he used a 22mag on himself. He went ahead and broke out the 500 mag for old Johnson (BT).

ok... here's the newspaper article:
East Dublin man charged with murder
11/13/06
By STEPHANIE MILLER

A Laurens County man is in jail today charged with murder after the shooting death of his roommate Saturday night. According to Investigator Sgt. Brian Scarborough of the Laurens County Sheriff’s Department, Carl Adams, 58, of 585 Kenneth Hilburn Circle, is in jail and charged with murder following the death of Randall Nathan Johnson, 48, of the same address. “911 received a call in reference to a gunshot wound,” said Scarborough, adding when deputies arrived they found a white male with gun shots to the chest and abdomen. The man was pronounced dead at the scene. Scarborough said although the accident is still under investigation to determine the cause of the shooting, he does know Adams called 911 asking for help after the shooting. The call to 911 indicated “his friend had been shot twice,” said Scarborough. Johnson was shot with a revolver. Adams is being held in jail with no bond.

It's interesting that the article says "the accident is still under investigation."

Really.
I'm going to dig for an update on this.Knowing Carl's background, I'm sure he's in a looney bin somewhere.A man that unstable is hard to convict.
When a 50 cal. goes off it's prolly not an accident. When it fires the second round, you can bet your ass it's not.

Putting out an APB on Sundae Girl.

Anyone heard from her? I haven't got her new phone number so I can't contact from here. I haven't seen her post for days (which is unusual) and she seemed down last time she was about. Hope she isn't feeling too low.
