HENDERSON COUNTY — On Sunday, June 5th, Henderson County Sheriff's officials responded to a disturbance at the 31000 block of CR 2100 in Henderson County.
There, they found Jeff Whitworth, 33, with gunshot wounds to his chest, arms, and face.
They also found Wilburn "Murl" Stanfield, Jr., 43, (photo above from Henderson County Jail Records) dead in the driveway.
Henderson County investigators discovered that Whitworth and his family were driving ATVs near their home when they were approached by Stanfield about driving recklessly in the area.
After an arguement, Stanfield left breifly and returned a short time later with his cousin, Patrick Russey, and a shotgun.
