Police said Monday they are continuing to conduct interviews and collect evidence into the death of a Barnwell, S.C., surgeon whose body was found Saturday in a Richmond County creek.

The sheriff’s office arrested a suspect Saturday but has yet to make public a motive in the death of Dr. Charles Mann III, 60.

Glenn Vincent Riggs II, a 22-year-old with several misdemeanor warrants against him, has been charged with murder and robbery by force in the case. Police believe Mann was killed at Riggs’ residence in the 2600 block of Dublin Drive.

The surgeon, who usually returned home on weekends to his home in Kathleen, Ga., south of Macon, was last seen Thursday. His blue 2006 Honda Civic was found in a wooded area on Old Louisville Road on Friday and his body was later recovered in Spirit Creek at Willis Foreman Road.

Knockout Game

Based upon all factors given , particularly the racial ones , I suspect

this sad occurrence will be found to have been the accidental result of

a variation of the currently all the rage " knockout game " , known as :

" Polar Bear Hunting "

It's a lot better when "people" like Mr. Riggs

stick to killing and robbing, well, "people" like the lamentable Mr. Riggs.

Society has experienced yet another sorry trade-off. We lost a doctor, a surgeon who surely saved and would have saved many lives, in exchange for 5+ decades of paying through the nose to feed and shelter the beastly excuse of a human being who wanted the doctor's $22.

And this kind of abomination happens every single day in the United States because we and our parents allowed it. We have simply stopped requiring a huge segment of our citizens to grow up and become responsible, productive citizens, and those people, with the help of predatory politicians, have pretty much destroyed the greatness of our nation.

The final details may not be pleasant to read when written.

But based on the numerous patient phrases of the Doctor,
he must have done a lot of good for a lot of people.

Yesterday I listen to a number of radio talking heads touch on:
"could have been's",
"might have been's",
"not saying it was",
"not saying it was adult nature" hints,
"maybe drugs and etc...
In short Air Time filler discussions.

One thing for sure
This is one of those stories where the more we hear more, the
less we know for sure, other than it happened.

@ nocnoc

That was my complaint on the other thread, "the could haves", etc. The circumstances are odd enough to raise a lot of questions for sure; but these kinds of speculations are what can get rumors started. It starts off with someone saying "______ could have happened", then before you know it; it gets recited as the truth by the time it is told the third time, with embellishments added.

As you say, in the final analysis, something unpleasant could be found out; but it is particularly unjust to create rumor around someone who had a stellar reputation.
