    NC - Jefferson Heavner, 26, shot, killed by drunk driver, Catawba County, 22 Jan 2016

    Apparently no good deed goes unpunished...

    Marvin Lee

    Catawba County, North Carolina -
    The Catawba County Sheriff’s Office says a 27-year-old Good Samaritan was shot and killed yesterday by a man he stopped to help.

    The victim has been identified as 27-year-old Jefferson Heavner of Newton.

    Investigators say the suspect, Marvin Jacob Lee, has been charged with first-degree murder and will appear in a Catawba County court on Monday. The sheriff’s office says Lee was drunk when he ran his vehicle off the side of Mathis Church Road during the snowstorm on Friday afternoon.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    So often you hear stories about people being hurt and ignored by passersby. Those stories always make my blood boil but cases like this is exactly why people don't help! They fear for themselves if they get involved. It is so sad people are hurt or lose their lives just trying to be a decent human being. How awful rip

    Plus, he had a toddler son.
    What a horrible and disgusting act -- if this doesn't merit the death penalty-- I don't know what does.
    And I do not care if M.L. was drinking. When ones chooses to drink and go out driving, one is responsible for whatever happens next.

    Rest in peace, Jefferson ! My sympathies to your loved ones and especially your little guy !

    From June:

    Prosecutors won’t seek death penalty in Good Samaritan killing


    Prosecutors have decided not to seek the death penalty against a Claremont man accused of killing a Good Samaritan on an icy Catawba County road in January.

    Marvin Jacob Lee, 28, still faces the possibility of life in prison without parole, prosecutors said in announcing their decision not to pursue capital punishment against Lee.

    Lee also faces charges of attempted first-degree murder, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and discharging a weapon into an occupied vehicle. He remained in the Catawba County Jail without bail Thursday.
    Reduced bond considered for alleged Good Samaritan shooter
