The Strange Case of the Knox County Sheriff

There is a major murder case in Knox County that involves a female college student. So far it is unsolved. “America’s Most Wanted” offered to feature the story nationwide. The parents were all for it. Read the Sheriffs decision here.
The Incumbent Sheriff of Knox County has yet to answer any questions from the public during his most recent run for re-election. This is only unusual because three times so far he has simply not shown up for a scheduled public appearance. There are hundreds of voters that were present all three times, TV stations were there, the radio mics were on, and his Democratic opponent sits there.
I’ve only lived in this town for 4 years…the Sheriff is going for his 5th term in office.

Is it me?
