Fasbenner family searches for answers

“If the sheriff of Franklin County does not elect to bring something to us, then I don’t have a complaint to work on,” Meggs said. “We’re prosecutors, not investigators.”

Butler said the family has not reached out to Meggs because they have been waiting for law enforcement to complete their work. The toxicology and autopsy reports are expected within weeks.

“I think he (Page) should be held accountable,” said Fasbenner’s grandfather. “It doesn’t make sense to me that this would be a justified shooting. I just don’t really know; a lot of things don’t make sense.

“I know my young’un,” he said. “He was taught to respect others and not take something that didn’t belong to him.

“We don’t have money to hire a lawyer, but I would like for them to know we care about our young’un,” said Butler. “I raised that boy. He’s never done nothing like that. He wasn’t no thief or nothing.

“He was in the wrong yard and he got shot down,” said Buddy Wayne Butler. “He worked all day that day, he went out oystering.  He worked hard that day and I know he was sunburnt and tired.”

Butler said he supports law enforcement, and the sheriff himself, but does not agree with Mock’s conclusions.
