A single murder doesn't even make the news lead in Memphis. It has to be a multiple to make it on before the first commercial.

You would think there would be more interest when in fact there were illegals involved in this murder.

Illegals involved in crime? Inconceivable.

Oh, so THAT's your angle. I was wondering why you cared about a typical murder half a country away from you.

Body in Jefferson County identified as Tallahassee man
By Jeff Burlew and Jennifer Jefferson

The man whose body was discovered Tuesday afternoon along a dirt logging road in rural Jefferson County has been identified as Michael Lee Gerrard, 35, of Tallahassee, said Maj. Bill Bullock of the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.

The body has been taken to the state Medical Examiner's Office in Tallahassee for an autopsy that will be conducted today, Bullock said.


Sheriff David Hobbs said that it was evident that foul play was involved.

"He hadn't been there long," Hobbs said. "It was pretty recent."

A member of a logging crew spotted the body about 3 p.m. off Tram Road, just across the Leon/Jefferson county line. Deputies arrived, and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement was called to process the crime scene.

The body was still at the scene after dark Tuesday. Hobbs, who was at the scene with deputies and FDLE personnel, said the body would be taken to the state Medical Examiner's Office in Tallahassee for an autopsy.

Bullock said blood was found on the fully clothed body. He wasn't aware of any recent missing-persons cases in Jefferson County.

The death is still under investigation.

"We're following up on some leads, and we'll see where the investigation takes us," he said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Hobbs or Bullock at (850) 997-2523.

Sorry about your friend,

About the comments, it might have made more sense to people if we had known up front the connection to yourself.

Too many times lately there have been posts that cried wolf or were from the onion, etc.....

I hope the perps suffer to their last breath.

Almost positive it was the illegals on his crew, he was threatened with death on friday, for firing one of them.

This man would give his last dollar to a stranger in need, and has on many occasions, he donated his time and money(he was a working guy) to others in need and their families.

How much of this could have been prevented if your friend
hadn't hired illegals in the first place?

Here's an idea......LETS WAIT TO SEE WHAT HAPPENED BEFORE WE START BLAMING THE MEXICANS.....fuckin' racist asshats.

That was what the firing was about

Who is being racist here??

This was a heinous act perpetrated by illegal aliens from mexico, this has nothing to do with people from mexico who are here legally.

Am I the only one confused as to what state?
There are a lot of Jefferson Counties....

Poster is from IL, but Tallahassee makes me think FL

Your powers of deduction fail you.

This happened around the Florida/southern Georgia border area.

Hiring illegals is somewhat advantageous when it comes time for payday and doing taxes, but rather inconvenient when it comes time to tracking a murderer.

I'll keep an eye out for some brown guy running towards the border looking over his shoulder for ya.


ETA: Sorry for your loss.

If you had botherted to be more clear in your initial post, there wouldn't have been so much confusion as to what your point was.

Truly sorry for your loss....I hope they crucify the bastards who are responsible.
