    Nothing is more wholesome.

    All of the times we've gone night fishing it was so beautiful, and peaceful on the water. Many fish around docks because they usually have lights. The lights attract flying insects/bugs, and that attracts the fish to swarm around the decks.

    In the south fishing with friends, and family is as ordinary as sun or rain. It's a bonding experience shared with good friends, and families.

    What an unbelievable tragedy for these three good friends, and their shattered families.

    It just shows even when good people are out enjoying their time together... evil can be close by.

    I can't even imagine the pain, and suffering all of these families are enduring with their lives forever changed.

    Three young men just out for a night of fishing turned into the worst nightmare.

    It shows no one is truly safe anymore anywhere they may be even when they are doing nothing wrong.

    It just seems at times now the worst most violent monsters have been unleashed on so many good people.

    Three arrested in slaying of three friends headed to fishing trip, Sheriff Judd says
    ''Judd identified the suspects as Tony ”T.J.” Wiggins, 26, his girlfriend Mary Whitmore, and Wiggins’ brother Robert Wiggins, 21.

    Among the leads that drew detectives to the suspects were tips to the Crime Stoppers line.

    “Look at T.J. Wiggins from Frostproof,” Judd quoted some of the callers saying. “Not because they had any idea he did it, just because he’s mean.”

    Tony Wiggins was first arrested at age 12 and has a history of 230 felony charges and 15 convictions, Judd said.

    “He’s wild and he’s out of control.”

    Video recording shows that the fatal encounter apparently began when the victims and suspects ran into each other earlier at a nearby Dollar General Store, Judd said. The motive wasn’t immediately clear, but in describing the shooting scene, the sheriff said T.J. Wiggins screamed at one of the victims, “You stole the engine out of my truck.”

    ''The victims were beaten and shot to death as they were heading to Lake Streety near Frostproof to go fishing, Judd said. They are Damion Tillman, 23, Keven Springfield, 30, and Brandon Rollins, 27.''

    I missed the first part of the presser. Did the sheriff say what led them to suspect "TJ"?

    I wonder if they thought they were establishing an alibi?

    I think he said that TJ punched Kevan in the face when Kevan said he didn’t know what TJ was talking about. Before he started shooting everyone.

    So surely Brandon DID tell his father who the attacker was during his final moments. If everyone in town knew this TJ Wiggins, then obviously so did Brandon.

    So Judd knew from minute 1 who did this. Interesting that the reward was raised from 5k to 30k.

    Once again - it looks like the motive is unlike anything we guessed.

    What I'm getting is that TJ thought K stole his truck and was selling parts (engine). Talking to D, at the store, maybe he learned K would be at the lake and followed D there, then flew into a rage and killed everyone. Does that sound right?

    If they went in they may have cleaned up in restroom to rid gun residue and any blood.
