‘Sins and Secrets’ and Halloween controversy

A selection of reader comments from our Facebook page last week and earlier this week:

On a question asking if you watched “Sins and Secrets: Iaeger” on the Investigation Discovery channel, and what you thought of the show. (For those who missed the episode about McDowell County, it will repeat on Saturday, Oct. 27, at noon.)

• Just wondering how they could find one guy guilty and use basically the same evidence on the other guy and he was found not guilty — Pamela M.

• So when did “big coal” start killing people!?!? Really? The most shocking allegation on the entire program. Such sad commentary of the Iaeger area and people. This is my hometown and saddens me — Tonya B.

• I think it was well done. I’m glad they didn’t rag on West Virginia — Drema P.

• It was interesting but some of those pictures and people’s names were not familiar at all. But that’s my hometown. Doc was a good man. He and my dad were friends — Wayne J.

• Do you know if it’s going to re-air? — Louanna A.

• Not in reference to this case, but I know from recent experience that you can give the police and other authorities evidence and they do not act on it. The police there have people who are not qualified representing the police and in plain clothes. With that being said I’m sure then and now evidence was walked and trampled over. Knowing both families may the truth come out and peace be found — Laryssa W.

• I met a few of these people when my father-in-law died. They were quite mean and quite rude. Glad I never had to see any of them again — Charlene L.

• I know whoever did this

is a hard-hearted, cold-blooded killer and I hope that they suffer every bit as much as he did. I can’t believe anyone could be that cruel. I hope at some point all doubts are gone and we know the truth and Ebbie’s soul can rest in peace — Jeanie C.

• I enjoyed seeing journalists Samantha Perry and Charles Owens on national television. They did a nice job — Mark B.

• I did — Jason L.

• i did — Becky H.

• Very interesting. Brought back memories of a town where everybody knows everybody. Hopefully the correct justice was served — Lisa B.
