Police seek suspect in Monroe murder

Police seek suspect in Monroe murder

Authorities in Walton County are seeking a 30-year-old man in connection with the robbery and shooting death of a 68-year-old woman. A murder warrant was issued Wednesday for Sergio R. Moon, considered armed and dangerous, Monroe police said on Facebook. Shortly before 2:45 p.m., officers responded to an armed robbery call with a person being shot at an apartment in the 100 block of West Marable Street, according to the post. “Upon arrival, officers discovered 68-year-old Linda O. Flint on the floor, bleeding profusely,” police said. “Ms. Flint was transported to Piedmont Walton Hospital where she later died.” Moon is described as 5-foot-11 and about 150 pounds with black hair and hazel eyes. The GBI has processed the scene, and the Walton County District Attorney’s office is also involved in the investigation.

Pulling back the curtain on Jamie Dupree 2.0

Monday marks the start of a new effort to get my voice back on the radio for the first time in two years, by using a high tech solution, a computer generated voice, drawn from recordings of my old stories, as medical efforts to bring my voice back – to anything close to normal – have not been successful.

It was April 2016 when my voice began to falter, after I got sick on a family vacation; since then, my doctors have determined that I have a rare neurological disorder, in which the signals from the brain are getting mixed up [More]
