On August 26th, authorities found the body of the 25-year-old on the side of a Robertson County road, handcuffed and with his feet bound with duct tape.

During the course of the investigation, Agents developed information that one of the subjects, Alford Colwell, Jr., believed Francisco allegedly stole jewelry from Colwell’s mother.

    Funny thing is.. the guy chris harrington is my step daughters father he’s a huge pill head but anyways it’s funny to me because they claim they killed him for theft but chris was caught a week before he was arrested for this breaking into his own mothers house stealing cameras and pills and stuff.

    To kill someone because of theif, why not give him a chance to repay it all back? I think the court should look beyond giving these guys a second chance, they should recieve the same treatment as this poor man “Death!” you will never hear of new Springfield sentencing someone to death, but the old Springfield were tough and if you didn’t follow what was right and best for the families they would sentence your a** to life in prison without parole, or sentence you on to death row QUICK!.
