    "Williford's friends say he only got in trouble when he was drinking and that he had a drinking problem, recently falling off the wagon after trying to quit."

    It may be a glimpse at a possible defense especially if the DNA evidence proves to be solid as sources say it is.

    http://abclocal.go.com/wtvd/story?se...cal&id=7397009

    Looks like the 'hopeless alcoholic...too drunk to know any better' defense.
    At least some seem to be justifying his bad behavior.

    IMO - At least enough justification for defense to argue for life in prison and not death row

    "He also got a second burglary charge when he shattered the window of a north Raleigh house and crawled inside.
    Williford's friends say he was simply drunk and thought he was at his rental home which looks very similar and is right next door."

    Riiiiiiiight. That's logical .......... shatter the window when you can't get in to your own place. :40__s:

    Ok, where is the search warrant for JW's apartment?
    We should have heard one way or another....either sealed or the media would publish. I want to see the probable cause detail as well as what they removed from the residence.
    ==========================

    Just heard the SW was not sealed....look for it soon.

    If you are referring to the murder of Morgan Harrington, why not just say so?

    Well, you are speaking about parallels...what parallels are you talking about? I don't see it.

    One victim is a 20 year old, who was at a Metallica concert,
    the other victim is a 62 year old, who was in a private residence.
    One victim was already decomposed when found,
    the other victim was alive in the hospital for three days.
    One perpetrator is still at large,
    and in the other case, the accused is in captivity.

    I would be interested in seeing what parallels you are speaking of.

    Unraveler-- both weren't in NC.
    Laces--MH was 20.
    JW liked (according to Internet-- I knew no one)
    heavy metal.
    In the Va case, many people knew each other /
    but no hints from
    thousands of posts on findmorgan.com about who is the
    perp.
    JW would be outside the box.

    It would be interesting to find out if JW attended the metallica concert. or anywhere near 15th st Grady during that time. googled her & found that she showed up missing at the metallica concert oct 17 2009 & her shirt was found outside an apt building at 15th St & Grady. & looks like her body was found on a farm in abermarle county. if you have any concrete suspicions about JW & connection w her, best you report it. if just a suspicion let us know that.

    Yes, i had already corrected the mistaken age, thank you. Welcome to the forum. You're correct, it is a very sad situation ...both women had lots ahead of them...however, evil never wins, unless you let it. I have faith that mysteries are solvable.

    I'm not seeing a possible connection from what I've read. Apparently, police believe it was someone local because of the tricky location she was found. Is JW from that area?

    waiting on the SW from JW's residence....the "drunkard defense" is pathetic but will probably come into play considering his past drug/alcohol convictions.

    If the Governor does as she says - then Kathy's death won't have been in vain.

    Hi guys - I removed a couple of posts that referred to pm's. Discussing private messaging or emailing each other in the open forum is called "inviting" and is against TOS. If you want to send a private message or post on someone's page - just do it, don't talk about it.

    Thanks,

    Salem

    Perdue's actions will have to speak louder than her words. Unfortunately DNA collection and reinstating DP comes to late for some crime victims. You are correct, perhaps this would mean KT did not die in vain.
