Most of us "good ole country boys" would never question a high school kid's heart or effort. And that's the last comment I'll make on that.

Maybe questioning Mitchells heart on other forum was the wrong way of saying it...I apologize for who I offended. But....i know last year was not a good showing for him after hearing all the D1 offers that some of you came on other forum boasting about. Cant remember who it was after we won last year... they was stating how much better Mitchell was over Graves... they pointed at scholly offers and “stars” to prove it. I think the kid is good.. i just know i didnt see the kid that was advertised last year. Hope he goes to Tech so I can root for him on right side of the bleachers. Again i have mad respect for Richlands, Union, and Giles as well.

Not really sure the exact area but the story says the last time his driver seen him alive they were in Bristol, VA and the next time he stopped in Oak Hill, WV he was found dead in the backseat. Oak Hill, WV is about an hour from the VA/WV state line and They said rigor mortis had set in by that time they found him so He most likely died some where between Bristol and Bluefied.

I actually think WVMetronews will show them live. They did last year and it's free.

Found it.  Thanks, Bluefield Researcher.  No way VH$L would let this happen for free.  Go Beavers!

One story told was that he was alive when the car he was riding made a stop in Claypool Hill at a service station where the Lowes red light is now. Can someone confirm or deny this claim?

I have heard several stories but the only one that really has any credibility was the driver's. The driver did change some minor details from time to time but it was clear he was under pressure to do so. I have seen three of his accounts published and in all three he states Williams was alive when he stopped in Bluefield on what is today Bluefield Ave (along the railroad tracks) and Williams was gone when he got to Oak Hill. No one knows where he died for sure but it seems for sure that it was somewhere on US 19 between Bluefield and Oak Hill.
