Re: tradgedy in St Marys, GA

Sometimes when people are purposely infuriated by divorce lawyers trying to instigate animosity so that they can profit from the ensuing dogfight, they precipitate things like this. This not unique. Sometimes people who feel outraged by perceived injustice, snap. Then, some people are ticking time-bombs just waiting for a reason to explode.

I'm curious about this as well. I've been in and around the St.Marys/Kingsland areas for years, both as a cruising sailor and a working professional in the marine industry. Whether there for pleasure or business, I've had many, many, many, more good and positive experiences while there than negative ones. What happened?

Re: tradgedy in St Marys, GA

Something similar happened to a guy I knew in my old marina. Wife was routinely linking up with her BF onboard thier boat. Divorce ensued and the boat was sold off as part of the re-allocation of assets. He neither burned the boat, his soon-to-be ex or her BF, although he would have liked to.

Lost the travel trailer (30' tongue pull) in my divorce. She would not let me have it or buy her out of it. It had to be sold, Period. She simply didn't want me taking other women camping in it.
