A woman shot her legally blind husband five times and hid his decomposing body under a jon boat, where she used moth balls to mask the smell, police said.
The incident is casting a shadow over the death of Dorothy's two previous husbands.
The sheriff's office executed a search warrant, and a cadaver dog found Charles' body wrapped in a camouflage tarp under a jon boat in the backyard of 80 Pine Tree Lane.
A box of moths balls was placed nearby, and police found a .22-caliber gun they believe Dorothy used to shoot her husband four times in the head and once in the chest.
That these continue to be issues of contention saddens me, and it’spartly our fault as critics and journalists for not doing a better jobof explaining what the stakes are.
That’s why I am so grateful to havebeen part of Pop Watch in 2007, to have a forum to raise such issues andstart a conversation.
