A 94-year-old Tennessee man was found dead with his hand cut off after a relative ran afoul of drug dealers who kidnapped him in retaliation, the Citizen Tribune of Morristown reports. "No one deserved to die like he did," the sheriff said of Willie Morgan. "This poor man was supposed to die peacefully on a front porch swing, not like this."
Three suspects are being held, and detectives seeking two juveniles say they are being “stonewalled” by their parents, the sheriff said. They allegedly kidnapped Morgan to blackmail his family into paying a relative's $3,000 debt, then left his body in a field. The suspects had never met Morgan before, the sheriff said, adding, "Small town USA is not so small anymore."
