No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc.

Deadly Duo: Jerry Wayne Damron and Lisa Church Damron killed their friend, Kelley Lynette Culley; Why you asked? Because she drank Jerry’s beer rather than her own! Wow – good excuse huh?

373 6th St SW
373 6th St SW Taylorsville, NC

These two are a prime example of real white trash. Killing over a beer? C’mon, be real. Kelley was a human being. She did not deserve to die over a beer. I wish the Damron’s would stay in prison for the rest of their lives, where they belong. Well, they deserved the death penalty, but it did not happen.
