    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."

    the body found was meagan's.

    "BAIRD, Texas -- The body found at T&P Lake in Baird around noon Friday has been positively identified as missing Abilene mother Meagan Dearman.

    A friend of the Dearman family told KTXS the family confirmed that Meagan's body was found at T&P Lake.

    While Abilene police have actively been searching for the 31-year-old Dearman, a resident nearby reportedly discovered her body at the lake."

    Justin Bennett, 32, was arrested on the warrant for assault, forgery and a parole violation Thursday, the same day his girlfriend Meagan Dearman was publicly reported missing.

    Police say the arrest is unrelated to Dearman’s investigation, but that Bennett is a "person of interest" in Dearman's disappearance.

    Court documents say one of Bennett's acquaintances claimed Bennett "told her he go into a fight with Megan Dearman and hurt her bad."

    A confidential informant then called police and said, "Justin Bennett had told them that he did kill Meagan Dearman and buried her body at a lake," according to the documents.

    Another one of Bennett's acquaintances told detectives Dearman let Bennett use her vehicle the day she went missing, and when detectives searched her vehicle, they found blood, the documents state.

    The documents say one informant told police Bennett confessed to strangling Dearman, and a medical examiner confirmed this information.

    Trial in Abilene mother's murder moving to Callahan County

    http://www.ktxs.com/news/trial-in-ab...unty/411196468

    The Abilene man accused of killing his girlfriend and dumping her body at a lake will now be tried in Callahan County.

    A Callahan County grand jury indicted Justin Bennett, 32, Wednesday for the murder of Megan Dearman.

    Jennifer Herod, who’s accused of helping Bennett dump the body, is charged with tampering with evidence. She was supposed to have a bond reduction hearing Thursday. But that was canceled. A new date has not been set.

    "KTXS reached out to Callahan County District Attorney Shane Deel to find out why the case is now being tried there instead of Taylor County. His office told us investigators initially believed the crime occurred in Taylor County. But there is not sufficient evidence to prove that. So they’re moving the trial to Callahan County since that’s where the body was found."
