Blood on His Hands

Carolyn Bibbs of Fellsmere, Fla., says neighbor Billy Wall came to her door asking if he could get a change of clothes. “He was drenched with blood because I seen it all down his leg,” she said. “I ain’t givin’ him no clothes to put on.” The police showed up shortly afterward, though, because Wall had allegedly stabbed his own nephew, twice, damaging his liver; he needed surgery. As they handcuffed him, officers say Wall admitted to stabbing Charles Williams, but claimed it was self defense. “He say, ‘He try to get a machete at me and cut me with a machete and I stabbed him’,” Bibbs related. And what started the argument? Wall says he only got one pork chop for dinner, and his nephew ate three. (RC/WPBF Palm Beach) ...Blood is thicker than water, but pork fat is thicker than blood.
