Give more answers on Jasper Co. murders

info@islandpacket.comApril 3, 2013 

I live at Tuten Landing in Jasper County, and I am concerned about the murders in our neighborhood. We can't even enjoy our neighborhood and our river.

We need some answers about these murders. Were the people targeted, or were the killings random acts of violence?

I can't even enjoy riding my grandchildren down to the river because I don't want to get caught up in crossfire. It's hard to explain to a 5-year-old child what is going on and why we can't enjoy taking a ride to the river. I don't even let them play outside without me being there.

I can tell you this: If you ride down Riverview Drive, you better know where you're going or your tag number will be called in to the Jasper County Sheriff's Office. With enough of these calls, I guess somebody will start giving some answers.
