I read it,you have to know all the people involved to get the names correct because he changed all them around except for the ones who are dead,anyway maybe they're waiting on another election to say its solved,but everyone already knew that Soapy&Gary were involved!!

The soapy guy was a friend of a former sheriff. He ran a bar perhaps on that hiway to oak ridge. I know a woman who reported to the sheriff that her son had bought drugs there. A few days later the police picked up her son and beat the hell out of him and that was the end of the story.(If it is the same soapy ??? could be a few soapys who also had a sheriff fond of them....

Soapy Taylor and Johnny Ray Morgan were heavily involved with 2 or 3 Sheriffs over the years. They had a lot of pull since they helped the Sheriffs run illegal operations. Morgan was a bag man for at least one Sheriff. He owned the produce market on oak Ridge Hwy. Taylor was a bar owner among other things. He went around and collected pay off money from bar owners in the county to allow them to run gambling, etc. without the Sheriff's interference. None of the aforementioned Sheriffs are still alive except one I think but it's hard telling how much money they skimmed from bar owners over the years. BTW, I got this info years ago directly from one of the long time Deputies and he doesn't lie!
