Sutton.... in answer to your questions. 1. We hear "yelling" all the time, especially on Friday and Saturday night. But this was different. This was not the usual "yooohoo" it was shouting, arguing type yelling between two people. And I have never heard shouting like that since. 2. The people here are very strange to say the least. Lots of illegal stuff going on. We smell meth cooking all the time. Since we have lived here there has been 2 murders in the area. We don't associate much with our neighbors. 3 The skull was found about a mile from my house. I took it home and eventually threw it away. It was pretty creepy though. It was found in an area that was being developed for new mountain cabins, but went belly up 4 I suspect he came upon someone and there was an altercation. That's my theory. 5There was no hunting going on at that time of year...but that doesn't mean that someone could have been on his property. People here don't take kindly to trespassers. 6. We hear gunshots everyday here. I do not remember if I heard any that Saturday, but if I had heard one after the shouting, I would have called the BCSO. I can tell how far away gunsots are, but truly I cannot recall if I heard any close ones that day. I go out in the woods frequently and I always keep my eyes open. If Michael had been killed and missed by the search and rescue folks, he would be skeletonized by now and covered with 7 years worth of leaves and deadfall. But I look and metal detect all the same. He has been on my mind alot this Spring, and that is why I joined this forum. I dont know if his family reads these posts, but if they do, I want them to know that people have not forgotten about Michael .
