The body of 27-year-old Ronnie Joe Gammage was found Wednesday in Upshur County after his alleged killers lead police to his body.

Gammage went missing on December 4 and a report was filed on December 8, the same day his truck was found in a Waffle House parking lot with the tires slashed.

Longview police released surveillance video earlier this week of a group of people attempting to cash a check from Gammage's account. Tips from the public helped identify two of the people in the car as 20-year-old Sarah Haslam and 19-year-old Daniel Jones.

Haslam and Jones spoke with Longview Police on Wednesday and during those interviews revealed to police where Gammage's body was.

Haslam and Jones were both charged with Capital Murder and Aggravated Kidnapping.

What were they thinking? Kidnap a nice man who was mentally handicapped and kill him for what, 50.. 100.. bucks? And they beat him senseless before cutting his throat? Yea capital murder for sure. Sad such young people throw away their lives and the life of that young man they murdered.

This sociopathic sub-human excrement should be executed post haste. What did they get out of this murder....NOTHING. And now, in all likelihood, myself and fellow taxpayers will pay for their board and lodging for the next 20-30 years. If so, put them in the general population: Haslam looks like a girl and he will be very popular in Federal Prison. 19 and 20 years old and their pathetic lives are wasted. Unfortunately, an innocent man died at their hands. May God accept his soul!

My mistake - Haslam "IS" a girl. Well lil ol gal - butch is definitely waiting for you. Problem is, Butch will not ask permission.
