Rest in peace Lieutenant, I am only so glad that your murderer, Laron Williams was killed in prison by Mr. Bobo. What a way to go, ha ha, beaten to death with a barbell. He got his. He also had killed a woman in West Memphis, Arkansas before killing the priest in Jackson, Tn. Who knows how many lives were saved after his death. I am sure he would have killed others had he not been caught. His attitude in jail was unremorseful prior to his sentencing. Welcome to hades Laron.
