When Paul Sampleton Sr. discovered his 14-year-old namesake face down on the floor, not breathing, his arms bound by duct tape, he noticed something was missing: his son’s prized pair of Air Jordan sneakers, stolen from the Grayson High School freshman’s feet after he had been shot three times in the head.

Remember the Johnny Cash song “A Boy named Sue?”
Well sit right down and let me tell you about a Georgia girl named Christopher.
According to WSAV-TV in Savannah, 20-year-old Christopher Buckner, of Guyton, Georgia, and her half-brother, 25-year-old Timothy Savoy, of Jackson, were charged with incest, aggravated sodomy and prowling after admitting having sex in a semi-truck in the parking lot of a Baptist Church.
There’s a country song in there somewhere but I’m not sure who would have the courage to sing it.
Guyton is in Effingham County, near Savannah, and Jackson is just south of Henry County. The church, Countryside Baptist, is just across the street from Effingham High, where I assume Buckner went to school, and maybe her half-brother too.
Tuesday at about 4:30 a.m., Effingham deputies, who apparently did not heed the “if the Kenworth is rocking don’t bother knocking” advice considered polite amongst most truckers, said the couple admitted to having sex three times after watching the movie “The Notebook.”
Don’t tell my wife but I’m looking for that movie on Netflix as soon as I get home.
