    This being the most crooked county in ga I’ll be shocked if you really do get to the bottom of this. With the dirty law enforcement here anyone with money or a good name can will and have gotten away with everything.

      That’s the damn truth! Law enforcement in Wilcox are supposed to be a good role model for others and are supposed to help people but all of them have dirty hands and try there best to hurt and bring people down. The sheriff has talked bad about someone and talked about how you can’t stand just one person and there a piece of crap to him. You’re supposed to be a pillar of the community you’re not supposed to downgrade people you’re supposed to try to help people and bring them up! This is the dirtiest town I’ve ever seen in my life

    Poaching and stealing has been an on-going problem in this area for years. Law enforcement allowed this to escalate by their continual lack of action.

      Yes, as soon as further information is made available to us by the SBI. We’re staying on them pretty tight.

    Being a hunter and tax payer of Wilcox County Alabama i would like a up date on the murder of Robert Manley on 1-28-18. Other than the state is working on the case have not heard anything else since around the first week in Feb. Do they have any leads or suspects?

    Thank you, Ernest Corcoran

      Hi Ernest,

      At this time, the state is not releasing any updated information on this case and neither is our Sheriff.
      I do have my presumptions on what may have occurred concerning the other individual in accompaniment with Mr. Manley, but feel it’s best at this juncture to hold my opinions with respect to the family. Please know that we are staying on top of this with plans to release any information as it is released.
