Murder She Wrote: The Photos

Here are the photos you've been waiting for ;-)
Like the previous post names and dates have been changed.
All the photos are on the profile of John Doe, Jr * Murdered Victim, Wednesday's featured profile.
Five of the photos are also attached to specific events in his timeline.

I'm sure any court John Doe Jr. had dealings with in the early 19th century looked exactly like this. Yeah, still waiting on that sarcasm font.

Event Note: Ezekiel took a small axe & best out the brains first John Jr, then Robert & then Catherine, he drag their bodies to a ditch & Ezekiel left in Doe, Jr's carriage with blood dripping along the dirt road.

For the first time since I started this blog a year and a half ago I need to take some time off.
I'll be back on June 17th with more jaw dropping stupidity.
Thanks for reading!

Thanks to Janet for the heads up about this profile ;-)
