Good Wednesday evening and Happy Hump Day!
We're continuing to follow an emotional battle being waged in Marshall County. Family and friends of 4 teenagers killed 13 years ago in a horrific crash on Highway 69 near Guntersville gathered tonight for a candlelight vigil to remember the birthday of one of the victims. Andrew Morrison would have turned 32 years old today. This vigil comes as the property owner where this accident took place asked the state to remove memorial crosses set up by the family members of the victims. WAFF 48's Shumuriel Ratliff was on hand for tonight's vigil that had emotional as well as legal ramifications.
We're also continuing to follow a legal battle of a different sort. A new Wal-Mart is set to be built in the Mason Plaza Shopping Center to replace the current location on Drake Avenue. But the residents in the area where the new Wal-Mart is set to be built aren't happy about it. In fact, they held a community meeting at the Huntsville Public Library tonight to voice their concerns about the perceived increase in traffic, noise and crime. Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle attended that meeting, as did WAFF 48's Charles Molineaux. He'll take you to the "battle lines" in a report at 10.
We'll also show you a woman who used a ball cap to try and cover her face and her crime in my weekly Huntsville Area Crime Stoppers report. The woman police are looking for is seen using a stolen credit card at a Huntsville Kroger store. There's a reward of up to a thousand dollars if you can lead police to her.
