Lisa writes, "Hi. These pictures were taken at
Springfield cemetery in Louisiana. This grave stone
has a very detailed 'air' view of the crime scene. This 16 yr. old
boy (Michael) was murdered in his home town. He was hit by a car early in the morning
when he was hunting with his dog. The town residents say that the tombstone
engraving was done within an hour (when the mother had briefly left).
Many are convinced that it was done by Michael himself after his death."
Recent information has come in to
suggest that Michael actually drew the scene of his death on a brown paper
bag before he died. And after the family found the bag with these images,
they had it etched on the back of his tombstone. So just to be fair, we are
now reporting this version of the story.
