Another Drowning Reported

Written by Eddie Lewis

Houston County Sheriff's Department  were dispatched to a report of a missing 13 year old boy in the Chattahoochee State Park.

Houston County Coroner Robert Byrd has identified the victim as 13 year old Duane McLeroy of Bascom Florida. He and family were having a BBQ today for Memorial Day.

According to information on the scene, the child was wading in the water and left to go to the bathroom. The family last saw him on the loading/unloading ramp. When they began to look for him they found his short and shoes on the ramp.


Houston County Sheriff Lt. Randy Anderson and Deputy McKinney were the first two deputies on the scene. When they were notified a time lapse of about 45 minutes had gone by from the time the child was last seen. Family and friends had looked for him and then called law enforcement. The park ranger had been assisting the family in a search prior to law enforcement's arrival.


Deputy Anderson called for Houston County Rescue Unit and Regional Land and Water Unit to respond. A ground search and Sheriff K-9 was initiated and a underwater search was initiated. At around 6:30 PM divers in the water located the child's body.


Houston County Sheriff Department and Houston County Coroner's Office investigated. Dothan - Houston County Emergency Management Director Clark Matthews was on the scene.

ANNISTON, Ala. — It's been five years since the federal government suggested police agencies across the country retire their "10-4s" and code speak for plain English during dispatch calls.

But only one local agency has followed that recommendation and made the switch from the so-called "10-codes" to asking officers who call in incident reports to use regular, everyday English words.

For the past year, Anniston police have reported robberies, responded to assault scenes and called in for back-up using this plain-speech protocol. And officials with the department say they'll continue to stick with plain old English in the future, too.

"It just makes things simpler," Anniston police Chief Layton McGrady said. "And in stressful situations, plain talk was what you were going to fall back on anyway."

Allen George, an Anniston lieutenant, spent much of his time during the week following the April tornadoes assisting other public safety agencies in search-and-rescue efforts.

"It's necessary. Like with the tornado, when you start dealing with other agencies from outside the area, you start using 10-codes that are different, and plain speak becomes necessary as far as intercommunication," George said.

Different agencies use different codes. For example, Oxford police use "10-68" when responding to a report of gun-shots fired, but state troopers use that number to mean "present a written report," Oxford Sgt. L.G. Owens said.

The necessity of plain speech became apparent nationally first after Sept. 11 and then later after Hurricane Katrina, when police departments from across the states of New York and Louisiana responded to the tragedies and struggled to communicate effectively, largely because of mismatched 10-codes, a 2006 report from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security documents.

As a result, the department began to "strongly encourage" plain speech for internal operations, although it has not made the communication protocol a requirement.

Police search for shooter

Written by Eddie Lewis

HUNTSVILLE, Alabama -- A man shot Sunday night in the 2900 block of Alaska Avenue is expected to make a full recovery, police said.

Around 8 p.m., two men were arguing over something that happened earlier in the month when one of the men pulled out a pistol, police said.

According to reports, the gunman fired several shots, hitting the other man in the upper leg. Police said the injured man, Dewan Jones, 28, was transported to Huntsville Hospital and his injuries were not considered life threatening.

Police haven't made an arrest in the case, but said the shooter left the area driving a dark colored vehicle. Anyone with additional information is asked to call Huntsville police at 722-7100.

MOBILE, Alabama -- Michael Pardue, whose 3 murder convictions from the 1970s were later dismissed amid headlines and controversy, was arrested late Saturday night after barricading himself in a house during a domestic disturbance, Mobile police said.

Pardue, 55, was in Mobile County Metro Jail Sunday on bail totaling $3,000, records show. He was charged with 3 counts of third-degree domestic violence in relation to harassment, menacing and reckless endangerment.

All 3 counts are misdemeanors.

Police spokeswoman Ashley Rains said officers were summoned to a house in the 4500 block of Park Road about 8:30 p.m. Saturday on what was originally a “nature unknown” call.

A woman at the scene said that Pardue had threatened her with a gun and fired a shot inside the house before she was able to leave and go to a neighbor’s home, according to Rains.
