    I can not put enough into words how CRAZY this man is... He is simply scary......... My friend provided transportation for him, and set me up on a blind date with him.....Okay, he has no TEETH in the front and is an abomination.

    I'm sure the bond is high due to they need to investigate, he is a sick little creature, a very sick individual - and I'm sure he will plead insanity - or some mess like that...what I would like to know is he lives in Mebane, and he was concealing a body in Durham, that is just weird.

    This is a very bad, very scary man. He has skated out of some icky charges very lightly, and it may just be that people are actually communicating with each other for a change!

    I think a lot of these judges set the bond low to increase the changes that the crimes happen again before trial. I wish all the judges took a lesson from whoever set this bail and erred on the side of caution and set a strong bail.

    Decisions are as random as the day is long in our justice system eh?

    I am a bit confused in the bond being 1 million. That sounds like a lot for concealing remains. I imagine they are holding him for that bond and then exhuming the remains to see if there is evidence to up the crime to murder 1 or something like that.

    $1 Million for this guy for hiding the dead person but only $10K for the guy in the other story who raped the child. Who is making these decisions?
