    I'm going to chime in with my observations of things I think are no big deal, having grown up in the country:
    1) Fishing at night, especially catfishing is very common. In fact, many believe night is the best time for catfishing.
    2) Many people know where other people's favorite fishing holes are. If someone was looking for one of them, they may know exactly where to go. The father did.
    3) Bullet holes in signs are common - people use them for target practice.

    Sadly, this makes it sound more and more like they don't have a whole lot to go on right now. I hope I'm wrong on this.

    This post lands at random.

    Let's not bring political speculation into the mix unless there is MSM to support.

    Thanks.

    hmm if it is true that he spoke to his father and that is confidential - it does seem as if he may not have known the killer(s) IMO.
    ETA:
    LIVE: Grady Judd addresses fishing trip ‘massacre’ of 3 friends | WFLA
    Judd said the father was able to have final words with his son, Brandon, before he passed. The information Rollins gave to his father about the suspects remains confidential, the sheriff’s office said.

    It does seem to show some desperation, tho that’s understandable.

    I disagree here- though am confident you are more experienced than myself.

    These fellows certainly seemed to be economically disadvantaged, likely their peer group is as well. It’s a disadvantaged rural area where folks know one another & one another’s business. I think the Sheriff is trying to entice someone to speak up. IMO

    Long time Floridian here-
    A good portion of very rural Florida is similar to this area. Poor, low income, low education
    most are HS dropouts, lots of unmarried girls
    with babies from several fathers. Many on gov't assistance of some form, otherwise working low wage,minimum wage jobs.
    They sometimes call themselves Rednecks and
    others know what the term means. It's a whole culture that maybe outsiders wouldn't understand.
    Not so different from other very "country" areas.
    IMO this was a personal crime against the first
    victim and the other two were buddies and witnesses so had to go too. The consensus of
    FB posters who are local believe it's over a female. Sounds about right. Road rage is also pretty common in these areas. Small egos, big
    huge trucks and tires. We learn to get out of their way when on the road or they mow you down. Whole different lifestyle. Hard drinking and drugs are rampant and meth is ruining a lot of young people.
    moo

    I agree that it’s smart to turn up the heat and you are correct about how the economics of the area could be a factor. I just think it was a bit quick after the sheriff played a confidence card (which I think was smart too) yesterday about the victim talking to his dad. It just makes me afraid the sheriff may be showing too much. Please don’t take that as me being critical as I’m personally hoping that the sheriff is able to get whoever done this.

    I'm on the fence in this.
    Although I've voted 'yes'-- as I'm thinking the killers knew who the victims were, but obv. not in a 'friendly' way but knew that they needed to be silenced ?
    Idk.
    My mind is all over about this horrific slaughter.

    I commented in an earlier post about the possibility of homes on that road having cameras that may get pass by traffic, but after looking at it on a map search, I don’t see anything near that may have a camera. Maybe a wildlife type would be possible.
