Tommy Zeigler Is Innocent

 

 

Florida Private Investigator Lynn-Marie Carty

After ” living” for 38 years in a cage on Florida’s death row, William Thomas Zeigler Jr.’s pro bono investigator of 4 years, Lynn-Marie Carty, has recently unearthed exonerating evidence in his horrific,1975 quadruple murder case. Tommy Zeigler has spent the past 38 years wondering what really did happen on that tragic Christmas Eve. Now the truth has finally surfaced. The newly unearthed details prove that it was really Tommy’s brother-in-law from Georgia, Perry Edwards Jr. who was the mastermind of the murders, who hired the gang of killers. Now we know that his true motive was money, greed, jealously, loss of power and control. The truth has been uncovered in official documents and records. While Perry Edwards Jr. was still alive, well and actively harassing them, his family members came forward with their stories of the abuse, control and humiliation they suffered over decades of dealing with him. Perry Edwards Jr. threatened to burn down the home of his granddaughters father-in-law, Deputy Gene Jones if she and her son went back there to live with her husband Chris. Within a month the home, one patrol car and another vehicle were burned to the ground.

New Witnesses From Georgia Family Members Of Tommy Zeigler’s Brother-In-Law Perry Edwards Jr. Share All They Have Suffered

Nicole Jones, was controlled by the violent temper and abuse of her Grandfather Perry Edwards Jr. Her father Tom, was Perry Jr.s former son in law. Tom witnessed Perry Edwards Jr.’s violence first hand as he pummeled his pregnant daughter, Nicole’s mother Jenny, in the face during her first pregnancy. Tom saw Perry Jr. punch his “daughter in the face and drop her like a man,” right before his eyes. Nicole’s husband Chris Jones and her father-in-law Deputy Gene Jones, have all shared important, startling, facts about Perry Edwards Jr. with Mr. Zeigler’s investigator. Chris Jones shared some of his violent experiences with Perry Edwards Jr. who, just as court documents prove, has beaten and threatened to kill his family on a regular basis over the years.  Deputy Gene Jones used his expertise in law enforcement combined with his personal knowledge of the character of his daughter- in-law’s grandfather and provided extremely valuable information to Mr. Zeigler’s investigator regarding Perry Edwards Jr. Court documents have now been unearthed that support this new witness information. Mr. Zeigler’s investigator, Lynn-Marie Carty went to interview Mrs. Lizzie Parker and her sister in Georgia. They provided more information regarding the actions of Perry Edwards Jr. at the time of the 1975 Christmas Eve murders. Mrs. Lizzie Parker who was the former teachers aide to Mrs. Virginia Edwards was with her on the last day she was a teacher before she was murdered. Mrs. Parker knew that Mrs. Virginia was excited to be taking her granddaughter on the fateful trip to Florida for the 1975 Christmas holiday, but when Perry Sr. and his wife Virginia  Edwards’ arrived to pick up their granddaughter at Perry Jr.s home, she was not allowed to go with them. Perry Edwards Jr.’s wife Sandra told her daughter she could not go on the trip because ” there might be trouble down there.” It was Mrs.Parker’s husband, the game warden who accompanied the pastor who went to the home of Perry Edwards Jr. on Christmas morning to inform him of the murders of his parents and sister. Mr. Parker came home and told his wife Lizzie Parker that Perry Edwards Jr. had the strangest reaction to hearing the news. He said that Perry Jr. acted like he already knew they were murdered. Nicole Jones,  also shared knowledge that Eunice Edwards Zeigler’s beloved antique diamond dinner ring that was stolen from her finger as she lay dead at the crime scene, ended up in the possession of Eunice’s brother Perry Jr.’s wife Sandra May Edwards in Moultrie, Georgia. In July 1983 Sandra May Edward filed for divorce from Perry Edwards Jr. but soon after canceled it. She filed for divorce a second time the following year. The divorce became final in March 6, 1984. The final divorce papers were mailed to Perry Jr. on April 14, 1984. It was at that very same time period that people from Georgia stated writing to Tommy and visiting him, asking Tommy Zeigler questions about his brother-in-law Perry Jr. They wanted to know if Tommy knew of his brother-in-laws whereabouts and activities on the night of the murders, Christmas Eve 1975. All of the sudden, out of the blue the people from Georgia started asking Tommy so many questions about Perry Jr. that it prompted Tommy to write a letter to his mother Beulah on May 7, 1984. In Tommy’s letter to his mother he asked her the same questions that he was being asked. It seems that once the divorce was final, Perry Jr.’s former wife Sandra started sharing the truth about him. That ball stopped rolling when  Sandra May Edwards’ new love interest passed away. Sandra May Edwards went back to live with Perry Edwards Jr.
