just goes to show the pain pill and alcohol fiends will do anything. God rest Mr. Bradleys' soul. If you ask me from the booking photos the two brothers look a little "Deliverance" or a LOT inbred!!!

You'd think that nothing would shock us anymore, but this story shocked me. I feel so sorry for the man who was murdered in this horrific way. Where is his picture? What was his story? I don't want to just see the pictures of murderers.
