I am proud to let everyone know that I was one of the four volunteers that helped Police find the gun that was used to kill Jackson Police Officer Glen Agee. Check out the Story by clicking on the Link below.

Above is a pic of Joe Barnett and myself hunting the water where Police Officer Agee and the criminal fought. At first, we were reluctant to check out the creek because many snakes had been spotted in the area and the Police said they had covered it pretty well but I insisted on us getting in the water due to our equipment plus I dont like leaving any area unchecked. With relentless determination Joe found the gun in deep water.
