Smiley: A young Saints fan sees red

Dear Smiley: Every morning at my house we enjoy having our coffee and reading The Advocate.

One morning, after a sleepover, my 5-year-old grandson was checking out the headlines while I was making our coffee (he has a lot of milk and sugar in his, but drinks it in a mug and feels quite big).

As I watched him “reading” the paper, his facial expression suddenly changed to one of deep concern.

Was he staring at a picture of a violent, bloody crime scene or a tragic accident? Neither!

It was our favorite Saint, No. 9, Drew Brees, in a RED jersey!

My grandson turns to me and says, “Oh, no, Mimi! Drew Brees plays for the Atlanta Falcons now.”

I laughed and explained he had on a red jersey so his teammates wouldn’t accidentally hit him hard at practice.

He smiled at this, took a sip of his coffee, and then asked me, “If the

Cold Case Murder of Young Nurse Haunts Local Family

Tonight on News 5, we are investigating a cold case murder from over a decade ago that law enforcement refuses to give up on. It was a case that had the entire Atmore community worried for their safety. Melinda McGhee, a young nurse and mother of two, was murdered inside her home, after working an overnight shift at a nursing home back in March of 2003. McGhee’s body was never found, despite hundreds of people and several law enforcement agencies searching for her. No one has ever been arrested, even though the killer left behind a bloody crime scene inside McGhee’s home. McGhee’s sister says the “coward” treated her body like it was “trash.” Melissa Wall Boatwright has so much anger that no one has been forced to pay for the crime. “I wish the cowards who know about this who have chosen for 14 years to live their lives

Accomplice gets 12-plus years in Wrightsville murder of Sami Young

The family of murder victim Samantha Young said in court Thursday that Natasha Stover was obsessively jealous of Young and that the only reason Stover didn’t participate in Young’s slaying was because she couldn’t get to the bloody crime scene in time.

They asked presiding Common Pleas Judge Harry M. Ness to impose a sentence that would deprive the 21-year-old woman of the chance to have her own child someday, arguing that would be justice for taking Young from her then-1-year-old daughter, Arteya.

As they did when “Sami” Young’s murderer and ex-boyfriend, Marcus Bordelon, was sentenced to life in prison without parole, plus 10 to 20 years, for first-degree murder and related charges, they also spoke about

Dylann Roof sentenced to death: A hateful heart in one so young


WASHINGTON, January 10, 2017 — After pleading guilty to killing nine parishioners of Emanuel AME church on the night of June 17, 2015, Dylann Roof told jurors he could ask for life in prison for the slayings, but that he is not sure “what good that would do”:

“From what I’ve been told, I have a right to ask you to give me a life sentence, but I’m not sure what good that will do anyway,” Roof said. “But what I will say is only one of you has to disagree with the other jurors.”

On that summer night, Roof went to a historic black church in Charleston with a gun and a “hateful heart,” the prosecutor said, and should be put to death for killing those who had assembled for Bible study, welcoming the young white man to their
