Dial 911 man, I had a friend, I guess I could sorta call him my big brother because anytime I needed help with whatever the situation was he would have been there. I'll just call him "Slim". Slim turned out to be an outlaw. One of the first things he did, he broke into a place and took about $8,000 or $8,500 worth of equipment that just didn't belong to him. Well, they soon found out that he was a suspect so the law stopped him one day and put him under arrest, put the handcuffs on him and started to jail. But just down the road a little ways, there was a train crossing the track and it hit a car. It was a pretty bad thing. So the deputy got out and was doing all he could rendering all the aid he could to the hurt folks and while he was doing that, Slim just slipped out of his car, walked back up the road, got in his car, took a backroad or two. And when the officer went back to his car, Slim wasn't there. So he drove on into Kingsport and had a fellar down there cut the handcuffs off him with a blow torch and he headed out to Illinois. But when he got ready to leave, he came by his brother's house and just took his wife with him. And I had told him one time that they was too good of friends. He said, "Well, one of these days I'!i take her away from him because she's much too pretty for him. She needs a good looking man like me•" But however, three years went by and he had bought a new Oldsmobile and decided he'd come back to Virginia to the night and get an early start back ihe next morning. Well, the next *.mp.rning really early she told hfha if he would go out and chop'hdr some wood that she would'get him a good breakfast and he 'could head out. Well someb0dyhad seen this strange car wire Illinois tags parked there and.had called the Sheriff's Department. By that time they had changed sheriffs and the two deputie ' came down and asked him, ".-Who does that car over there'be!ong to?" He said "Belongs to my brother," and called his own name. They said, "Where fs your brother?" He said, "HS in there in the house in the b.ecl. He said ahh got in late last night and said not to wake him up, he needed sorne sleep." $o one of the laws went to the ,back door and the other one to2ttte front and they just stormed in the house. But to their Surprise, wasn't nobody in the house'. And they ran back out. 13ut by that time he had hopped fn that new Oldsmobile and ag/iin they lost him. He'went back to Illinois where,he, stayed another three years and. was killed in a job related accident. And they brought him back here to be buried-in the family cemetery I was thexe, when the deputies and the first .sheriff that he got away from came in to see him and to check thcrecords at the funeral home because they wanted to be sure that they could mark him offthe]t as one most wanted in Russe!llCbunty. However, he will stand before thejudgment bar of God. But I'm so glad that here's no sin see him Mom. Well, he came too large or too smalr but what back and they rode around all Jesus Christ can forgive them all.
