  1. 37?? I guess that druggie lifestyle really ages you prematurely. I would have guessed around 50 at least for the woman.


  2. You want to talk to someone come to me. I am the man in the picture and that’s my wife your talking about and she don’t even do drugs like that. So come holla at me DanM.

    • Dennis maybe your documented criminal activity in Johnston County, as far back as 2011, has had an adverse effect on your partner. Neither of you look like your past mug shots.

      • Idk who you think you are but from what u just said doc it’s been since 2011 for her so it’s been 11 years. So yes ppl do age over the years DOC AND SJH we got this it’s all good. These ppl just need to keep their nose in their own da*n business. She’s never been in trouble neither drugs and she da*n sure don’t do them. Thanks for running those mouths about my wife bc it gives us something to laugh at. Haha.

  3. Me and Dennis used to go to school together..he’s a good man just bad circumstances…keep your head up BJ things will all work out brother.
