  1. First of all Dwight was called over there by McLeod to come pick up his money. When got there he was shot instead of paid. McLeod was always looking for a way to get out of paying for what he needed done. He was not a good man. I have known him almost my whole life and he is a drug abuser, liar, thief, con-man, and a wife beater. He says his wife left him because of Elvis… WRONG. She left because he would beat her, take her checks to buy all that crap in that house and she got fed up with it. Witnessed the abuse first hand watching my mother come between him, his son, and his ex-wife. Funny how the cops said that McLeod’s statement changed when he lawyered up. He started to say that he did not even know Dwight when in fact he was doing some work for him. Several people told Dwight not to help him because he was not good… Just wished he would have listened and maybe he would still be here. It is a shame McLeod didn’t die years before now. It would have saved a lot of people hurt and heartache. R.I.P. Dwight Taylor. God took care of everything in the end. God above the Devil.
