I still don't believe the Mexican drug cartel angle. If I apply the logic of using information from similar stories I have heard throughout Appalachia (eastern KY, West Virginia, western Virginia) over the last 20 years, my first guess was that of a family feud with the feuding parties very likely to be different branches of the same family.

In the last 15 minutes, I have a really bad feeling about latinos and crime, esp. in Appalachia. Just my gut feeling from an alert that came across my local news apps.

WILLIAMSON, W.Va. (AP) — A sheriff says a man has been arrested in the death of a former coal company executive found shot at a West Virginia cemetery where his wife is buried.

Mingo County Sheriff James Smith said Tuesday that 20-year-old Anthony Arriaga was being held on a homicide warrant in Allen County, (Lima) Ohio. Smith says the suspect is being held in Monday's shooting of 59-year-old Bennett K. Hatfield.
