  6. Annette Woodmark

    Only way to check I think is by examining the brain in an autopsy for 100% confirmation. Other than that is to quarenteen him for 30 days and watch his symptoms. Definitely a psycho.

    The pent up rage these people have is scary, he didn't get like this from one moment to another, he built up to this. He's probably been beating small animals, and then bigger ones, probably started slapping his girlfriend, until he got so violent he bit most of her upper lip of, I can only imagine how much that hurt. These people are a danger to our community, and if he assaults his girlfriend in public he probably doesn't give a f— who else he has to assault, to keep terrorizing the object of his affection. Lock this guy up, and I hope the chick doesn't "forgive" him, or feel sorry for him, and drop the charges.

  15. Jacquie Downey

    The other side of the story is always. She made me do that to her, She brought it on herself, or I was just defending myself from her.

  20. Ekurth Warren

  21. Tania Bernard-O'Neal

    UM, I also know Wondo personally and he is one of the nicest people and I've NEVER known him to hurt any animals (or anyone else…I know he's been jumped many times in the past though…) … I am not condoning anything that is alleged here…. also who said "meth' was invovled, and who said 'victim' was a 'lady'??? love it when people can spout stuff without knowing everything… oh that's right FC does. :/

  22. Emmalee Owens

    Obviously not a "man" to bite people at that!! I know the lady an she is "the nicest person I know" an no one deserves what he did to her!
