    My blessings go out for the family. Being from the north (NY, I guess if you still want to call us yankees, then spread your hate, that was in the civil war, get over it). Focus on the solution and do not discriminate where people are from, that's just ignorance and that is probably why you lost the war!

    I would like to thank those that have sent out prayers and concerns for our family. Billy was my uncle and I truely miss him and want justice to be served. I know GOD is watching over our family as we try to grasp what has happened to Uncle Bill. I do hope that all people involved will be arrested and justice will be served.

    Does anyone know if the autopsy has been completed? I keep checking to see if any arrests have been made. I would like to see some justice served.

    To Angry and Hurt: The sheriff's department has done wonders with the situation in Pamlico Beach, I think they will provide your family the justice it deserves. God Bless You.

    For Micky and others focusing on their gripes about the sheriff's dept---READ the story you are commenting about. This is about a man who was brutally beaten then left in the yard by people he knew who were suposed to care about him on a night the temperature was about 38 degrees. Most people would not treat their animals or even potted plants the way he was just discarded and left in the cold with no protection from the elements. Have some respect for his family and friends and post your complaints about the sheriff's dept. elswhere. Billy was a father, a grandfather, a brother, and a friend to many. I hope those that were involved (beating him, and not trying to intervene/call 911) will be charged with the most they can possibly be given. I do hope the sheriff's dept will do their jobs and arrest these people. Because anyone that would take part in this type of activity does not need to live freely in our society.

    Dennis-I didn't know the Sheriff had a nephew. I really appreciate the work your uncle has done to keep homeowners' property safe in Pamlico Beach. Being from New York, I was not expecting the cold reception I received from the local fishermen when I bought up some land here. But the Sheriff's Office has straightened them out I guess. The locals haven't bothered me this year. Please thank your uncle on my behalf and on behalf of others hoping to make this area a better waterfront community.

    I would hope the sherriffs dept. will do its best to get all involved in this horrific crime. Reguardless of the stories no one deserves to be left for dead out in the cold with people walking by and not doing anything.

    as his nephew I would really appreciate it if you would find somewhere to complain about the Sheriff's office and only leave comments or information regarding to the incident. Thank you

    WITN should do a story on the point Jamie made, it was a very valid argument. Twenty years ago the Beaufort County Sheriff's Department was comprised of about 18 deputies. With that amount, they had three guys on patrol at a time. Fast forward to 2009, 75 sworn deputies, and still 3 guys on patrol at a time? As the Marvin Gaye song says, "Whats going on?" If you want to know whats going on, ride up to the office on a Tuesday & ask one of the two or three captains, two or three lieutenants, or one of the other OB's that patrol the area around a desk. We really need more patrol cars in the rural area of the county. Help, Commissioner Richardson!
