    Mingo, W.Va. sheriff fatally shot

    A sheriff known for cracking down on the drug trade in southern West Virginia's coalfields was fatally shot Wednesday in the spot where he usually parked his car for lunch, a state official said, and a suspect was in custody.

    State Police told Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin that Mingo County Sheriff Eugene Crum died of his wounds, said his chief of staff Rob Alsop. The suspect, who was also shot, was taken to a hospital in Logan, Alsop said.

    Keep an eye on this story. I am from Bloody Mingo and I fear there may be more than meets the eye to this one.

    State specific with death by gunshot involving local LEO - reviewed and approved.

    Same as Culpeper incident in Va. was.

    Grape,

    Have you seen anything in the news about a certain Judge being charged and removed from the bench. There is more to this case as well. Not certain if it will ever come out or if it can be proven, but old bloody Mingo has a seething underbelly. And this just in, the county prosecutor has for an undisclosed reason recused himself from the case as of today.

    Change number 3. Looks like said Judge is going to take a plea bargain. Not certain what is going on in the sheriff's case though.
