Coroner says teens death a possible suicide

A Georgia coroner has ruled an east Alabama teenager's death was an apparent suicide. Searchers found Ben Stanford's body Tuesday about a mile from where his SUV was found abandoned over a week earlier in Villa Rica, Georgia. Carroll County Coroner Sammy Eady said the wound was consistent with suicide, but the sheriff's department said the investigation into the death of  17 year old Benjamin Stanford was incomplete. Eady said that the teen had sustained a single gunshot wound to the head and that a .25 caliber automatic handgun was found lying near the body.   Law enforcement officials continue to be tight lipped about the case, refusing to confirm the coroners report or even confirming the identify of the body found Tuesday afternoon.  Carroll County Chief Deputy Brad Robinson said he planned to come to Lincoln today to meet with FBI, ABI and local law-enforcement officials to decide how the investigation should move forward. Robinson said all unexplained deaths, including this case, are treated as homicides until proven otherwise. Investigators would not confirm that a weapon had been recovered or if authorities were searching for suspects. The family will receive friends Thursday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Speed Channel Dome at the Talladega Superspeedway near Lincoln. The memorial service will be Friday at 11 a.m. at the Speed Channel Dome. The Donoho School will hold a candlelight memorial service at 5 p.m. Thursday in the grassy circle on campus.  In lieu of flowers, the family has asked for donations to the Texas EquuSearch search group.



Oxford drug bust 

A 37 year old Mexican national is in jail today after Oxford Police stopped his truck near Interstate 20 and Highway 21 Tuesday evening. In their search of the vehicle, officers found 45 kilos of cocaine with an estimated street value of over six million dollars inside the truck.  Police say the driver of that truck, 37-year-old Artenio Garcia Slores of Mexico, has been charged with trafficking cocaine. He is being held on one million dollars bond. 


Piedmont man sentenced in scam 

A Piedmont man who filled out timesheets and was paid for the care of a quadriplegic man after the patient had died has been sentenced, according to a news release from Attorney General Troy King.  48 year old Phillip Scott Hackney,  was sentenced to three years of community corrections and ordered to pay restitution of $1,419.
Hackney pleaded guilty Sept. 28 to second-degree theft from Automation Personnel Services Inc., a company that contracted with the Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services for the state's Homebound Services program. Hackney was a contract employee as an attendant to provide personal care for the severely disabled, in this case, a quadriplegic man who died in 2006. Hackney continued to submit timesheets claiming that he was caring for the man during a period of several weeks following his death.  The attorney general's office conducted an investigation after being notified of the matter by the Department of Rehabilitation Services. Evidence was presented to a Cherokee County grand jury, resulting in Hackney's indictment on April 30.


Governor pardons turkey 

A traditional Thanksgiving guest came to the Governor’s Mansion on Wednesday.  Clyde the Turkey was greeted by Governor Bob Riley, First Lady Patsy Riley and about 80 school children and pardoned by the Governor for the crime of being a “big, delicious looking turkey in November.”  Since 1948, Bill Bates of Bates Turkey Farm in Greenville and the Alabama Poultry and Egg Association have presented a turkey to every Alabama governor for pardoning.  In recent years, Mrs. Riley has added to the tradition by using the occasion to promote a cause:  collecting blankets for the needy as winter approaches.  This is the fourth year the First Lady has led the “Blankets with a Blessing” project for the less fortunate.
Thousands of blankets have been distributed to the less fortunate at women’s shelters and homeless shelters throughout the state.  Attached to each blanket is a piece of paper with a blessing and a Bible verse.
