    What the heck?? I wonder what is going on behind the scenes? I've never heard of this before....the family wanting to hold off prosecuting the case, even though the DA thinks they have plenty to go on.

    It's so depressing to think that Marsha's killer is still out there walking around (whether's its Donnie or not)

    No clue why her family doesn't want him tried yet

    CLEVELAND, TN (WDEF) - District Attorney General Steve Bebb, tells News 12, "I believe he's guilty as sin."

    In a rare sit down interview, Bebb explains why his office decided to dismiss Donnie Brantley's first degree murder charge, despite calling it a, "knock 'em dead case."

    Bebb adds, "We don't decide things unilaterally. You know, I want to know what everybody thinks, so in this, the family evidentially had told law enforcement they didn't feel good about going forward with it at this time and they wanted to try and get more evidence."

    From the local newspaper:
    "A cold-case trial was set to begin today, but late last week, the family of Marsha Brantley, who was reported missing in 2009, decided to drop the case for now so investigators could continue to collect evidence and information.

    Donnie Ray Brantley has been freed from the charge of first-degree murder, according to Paul Rush, who took over prosecution of the case recently after assistant District Attorney General Stephen Hatchett left the District Attorney General’s Office to seek election.

    “There are more people coming forward with information and the family of Marsha Brantley approached us to discuss dropping the charge at this time,” Rush said."

    I've never heard anything like this before either Snoopster, am sure there are many things that haven't been disclosed but if the DA say's they have enough, sure makes you wonder.

    So they let him go; sounds like he's free to go where ever? I'll be surprised if they do not find him dead before picking him up again. He knows it's coming.

    Just to be clear, I know that Marsha's relatives have stepped up to the plate and pursued her case. They must know something that we don't. I hope they find peace.

    Thinking of Marsha and her loved ones, as always.

    I wonder if they are hoping he will lead them to her body?
