Sept. 22, 2000 The Holmes County Sheriff came to see us at our farm in Bonifay, Fl. He told us Debbie had been found dead around 5 o'clock at the home of James Sanders on Highway 90. There were some prescrition bottles near hear that either empty or almost empty. The perscritions had been filled on Wednesday previous. He presumed she had accidently continued taling pills until it was too late. He reported James said he spoke with her about 9 A.M, she was laying on the couch, and when he returned at 5 p.m. he was unable rouse her and called the Sheriffs office. When we went to her house we found about a third of the living room cieling had fallen out and dumped the loose insulation over everything. The Tri-County ? had blown in the insulation a few weeks earlier. It was a very messy sight. We surmised that when she came home from Carlos' funeral in Pelham, Ga on Thursday afternoon she was distraught over the damage, got some clothes and went to Sanders house to spend the night.
