  • Strum Und Twang: A Halloween-appropriate tale of country music murder

    Country fans are in an uproar over the release of John A. Brown, the bastard who murdered country music star David “Stringbean” Akeman in November 1973. Brown and his cousin ambushed and shot Akeman and his wife Estelle at their Tennessee home while attempting to rob the bank-leery Stringbean, a beloved banjo player and comedian who was rumored to keep large amounts of cash at home and in his overalls. After seeing her husband gunned down in the front doorway, Estelle attempted to flee but was chased across the yard and shot in the back of the head at close range. Grandpa Jones, String’s neighbor and best friend, discovered their bodies the next morning coming to fetch his buddy for a hunting expedition. Brown served 41 years of a 198-year prison sentence before being recently paroled.
