The suspicious Death of Joe Weaver
Highway Patrolman Joe Weaver was the first person on the scene of Morris Robeson's death and requested an
investigation. He began to ask questions and some felt he was investigating the deaths on the ridge himself. The day before he died his wife Jennifer Weaver picked up her daughter and his youngest son from school and drove them to Madisonville on I45 asking the son to telephone his father and requesting he go into the house from the barn where he was at.
The step daughter has reportedly told school counselor Patricia Hammond that she had been molested by Joe previously. Allegedly his wife telephoned then sherrif Mike Price to check on the welfare of Joe. After leaving a gas station in Madisonville his wife drove back to the home where they found the sherrifs deputies at the house and Joe was dead. Mike Price reported that upon arriving at Joes home he witnessed him walk from the barn to the house and stopping to pull his serivce pistol and shoot himself in the head.
