    I have personally known Ginger Cravens for years and was acquainted with Wendell Cravens. Ginger is a mentally challenged woman who I believe was completely manipulated by the creep that she was married to. She had an extremely volatile and abusive marriage with her first husband who beat her regularly and she was so mentally abused that she didn't know that there were any options but to stay and put up with him. She finally did leave him but got involved with Wendell who is in my opinion, a worthless individual. Knowing her mentally capabilities, it didn't take him long to drag her down to his level, getting her hooked on drugs and alcohol, and brainwashing her to do anything that he asked, whether good or bad. I hope that justice will be served for his remaining life, but in the end---I think that he will truly get what he deserves!

    OKAY--either I am completely insane or law enforcement in this area are blind. I think they're blind. How many elderly people does this total in the past 12 months either being murdered or disappeared?? LOOK INTO THIS STUFF FOLKS- that's what our tax dollars pay for, so ENFORCE SOME LAWS. Investigate. LET THE PUBLIC KNOW WHATS GOING ON. I have a Grandmother, as well as thousands of other people around here and it would be NICE for someone to share some details of the investigations...wait...you ARE investigating thse mysteries right?? Oh God help us all.
