Did you ever have a “gut feeling” about someone? I have frequently had some sort of “gut feeling” about several people who later turned out to be offenders, some seriously, including murder, and pedophilia, who is now doing Life without Parole./p>
There are others though that I just didn’t like and it turned out that my hunch was right, these people were offenders.
I am in a living history re-enactors group and the man in the following story was in our group. He was always rowdy, drank a lot, obnoxious and not always safe with the use of the muzzle loading fire arms that we demonstrate. He was a big buddy of the president of our group so there was never any action taken until one day he pointed a muzzle loading shot gun at me and asked me if I’d “like a butt full of rice crispies?” Well, not getting even an apology, just an excuse “it wasn’t loaded and I only pointed it at your butt.” I called police and filed a complaint of “terroristic threatening.”
Then I found out that he had convictions in another state for assault, and in our state for minor drug bust.
Then a friend sent me the link to the following news story.
This was on Ch 11TV and here on http://www.todaysthv.com or more specifically
Conway Police are investigating why a man never contacted authorities about his mother’s death. The coroner says he had been living with the body for at least two weeks.
Conway police made a welfare check at 69-year-old Glenda Thurman’s house Saturday night. Her 47-year-old son Mark Thurman answered the door.
“The officers had arrived and discovered Ms. Thurman had in fact been deceased,” says Officer Sharen Carter with Conway Police.
Carter says Mark Thurman was supposed to be her caretaker. Instead that welfare call came from a different son.
“The son from Ohio had tried to make contact with her numerous times,” says Carter.
The officer on the scene wrote in the incident report that Mark Thurman seemed “anxious and unorganized.” He also told police that his mother had been dead for at least three days, but the coroner says she’s been dead for at least two weeks.
In this case there was incense burning in the house to try to mask that odor,” says Coroner Patrick Moore.
Moore says Ms. Thurman died of natural causes.
“It appears Ms. Thurman died in her sleep in her bed, dressed in her bed clothes, laying in a position we consider consistent she slept every night,” says Moore.
Neighbors say they’ve tried talking to Mark Thurman in the past.
“He was mysterious and didn’t talk to anybody and kept to himself,” says Imran Khan, a neighbor.
It’s still a mystery why Thurman never contacted police about his mom’s death. “This is not normal. This is out of the ordinary,” says Carter. “Her caregiver was more interested in her being alive than dead,” says Moore. Moore says Glenda Thurman had a history of heart disease, hyper tension, congested heart failure and obesity. Prosecutors are unsure if they will press charges against her son.
You know, when someone acts in such a way that you feel “antsy” around them this may be your intuition warning you that this person, while maybe not a serial killer, is not someone you want to have anything to do with. After this incident Mark never came to our group again, and I was glad to see him gone. We also had another member who was arrested for child pornography, who did try to come back after he got out of prison. Several of the other women and I made sure that he was not a part of the group long. He also lost his job at the state museum working with kids after his criminal record was exposed there.
