    This is so sad that this guy got killed....I didn't know him personally, but everytime I saw him-this boy was always smiling...never looked like he would hurt anyone. Franklinton is rather small--I hope the killer is found and the police works hard as we do know they haven't even found the robbers of First Citizens Bank...prayers go out to Wilkins Family!
