Son of Alleged Murderer Speaks Out
"My father, no...he's never been an angry person. He's never been a vicious person, malicious. I've never known him to strike out in anger so I don't know what happened that day."
Frank Dixon, son of Frank Reeves sat down with WGXA to talk about his father, the alleged murderer of Linda Hunnicut. Dixon says his father was a veteran of the Korean War and confirms an earlier WGXA report that his father is also a stroke survivor.
"My father had several strokes when I was in high school and he's been partially paralyzed on his left side. So he tried to be independent. Sometimes I know being alone sort of scared him so we tried to make it as comfortable as possible."
Dixon says he knew his father owned a gun and sometimes carried it, but he's not sure if his father had a conceal and carry permit.
Now in the wake of the tragedy Dixon says he wants to reach out to the Hunnicut family.
"I know that we can't just look at how it affects us we know that their family has suffered a loss and I wish there was something that we could do to take it back and ease their pain so we want the Hunnicut family to know that we are so sorry for their loss."
Dixon says he will let the legal process play out and the court system dispense justice.
