Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). 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. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.).

Dave and Estelle Akeman murder 11/10/1973 Ridgetop, TN *John A. Brown and Marvin Douglas Brown convicted of the robbery-murder of Hee Haw star*

Dave and Estelle AkemanI am not a fan of country music, however, while growing up, we watched Hee Haw every week in our home. I remember Stringbean. Of course, growing up I did not know that he had been murdered. I remembered him in the cornfield and playing the banjo. It saddened me to see such a heinous crime, one committed solely for greed, as the 2 involved, John A. Brown and Marvin Douglas Brown, were after the fortune they believed Stringbean and his wife Estelle had hidden in their tiny cabin. They did not expect Stringbean to have a gun and actually shoot back, unsuccessful as that was. However, Estelle heard the shots and started to run. She was on her knees, crying and begging, but was shot and killed anyway. An act of cowardice and coldness. Marvin Brown died in prison about 5 years ago, but John Brown has just recently appeared before the parole board. When the Judge sentenced these two, he gave them each two 99 year sentences, to be served consecutively, NOT concurrently. He wanted to make sure that neither walked out of prison alive. Nor should they.

John Brown was granted parole today. He should be released sometime in the next few weeks.
