Auburn University Tree Poisoning Case: Is There Another Suspect?

In another odd twist to the “Moron That Poisoned the Trees” saga, there seems to be another possible suspect. It appears that another man might have either known about this crime or actually participated in it. Some fans might have actually followed the link posted on Bleacher Report that gave fans a look at this conversation.

When this thread was taking place, there were others watching, and it is evident officials have found reason to check into the facts. The new suspect could be Howard Wayne Barnes, reportedly a childhood friend of Harvey Updike.

Reading this thread that gave Mr. Barnes away read like a moron’s masquerade. There were several morons posting on the thread and few were warning these morons against such stupid acts. There was a picture of the chemical used to poison the Live Oaks on Toomer’s Corner in the thread and others plotted to take a Stihl chainsaw to the trees.

This only accentuates the need for fanbases to purge their ranks of such lunatics. Fans can not tolerate even what they think might just be a joke in poor taste. It is obvious there are more disturbed fanatics out there than many think.
