Mayberry Murder a Domestic Issue?

WXII News 12 is reporting suspicion that the shooting of four people in Mt. Airy this past weekend was related to a domestic dispute. The accused killer was picked up just beyond the Virginia border, which is only a handful of miles away from Mt. Airy, in a hotel.

Locally, they’ve called it a “mass murder” on the news, but I’m not sure that 4 people constitutes that label. When asked for comment, Matlock said, “I think it has to be more than eight people. So, nine or more.” Andy Griffith could not be reached for comment.

Right now, Marcos Gonzales is only a suspect, but you can rest assured that the men of Mt. Airy and Mayberry are on this one. It’d be interesting to see a remake of this show, or a spoof, where the residents deal with the influx of Hispanic immigrants. I’d be curious to see how that would go.
