Jacksboro Killing Update

Although the report says the victim died at "Parkland" when the autopsy said John Peter Smith. And the charge was "manslaughter" which would mean a reckless, but not intentional, killing. But I've never heard of anybody being the "XI". I suspect Daniel Nelson I through X are no too pleased.

Perhaps, he comes from a long line of Popes which explains the XI. Then again, maybe not.

Is the guy in the pic the victim or the perp?

You can't have manslaughter without laughter.

Maybe his free Yahoo email account suggested his username could be danielnelson11 and he thinks that is the correct suffix to follow his given name.

Judge, I didn't mean to kill him when I pointed the gun at his chest and pulled the trigger.

n our Eye On Crime, a Dallas-Fort Worth resident is charged with killing a Jacksboro man. Police said last night, nineteen year old John Ruben Harris met some family members when a dispute broke out.


Friends intervened and officers said twenty-one year old Daniel Earl Nelson the eleventh fired a gun. A single shot hit Harris, who later died at Parkland Hospital in Dallas. Nelson was arraigned this afternoon on a charge of man slaughter..

Hey Barry,

You're a runner. Did you see the July issue of Runner's World? The feature article is about a lady from the DFW area who gave up a baby for adoption in 1965. Anyway, the main photo, for this INTERNATIONAL magazine, was taken in..........Decatur, Texas!! At the Grasslands Run earlier this year.

Could be he's the eleventh Daniel Nelson. I knew a Thomas Williamson the fourth. Well, it's possible!

Or...maybe it's a "Bob Newhart" kinda thing, and he has 10 other brothers named Daniel; it could happen.

Um 12:59 if you had read the post it said the victim was John Harris. It even had a D.O.D. for him.

4:33- The runner, Suzi, used to be the run manager for the Grasslands Run. She ran this year with her son, who she reconnected with in the past couple years. I'll have to go get a copy of the magazine! Glad you mentioned it!!!

3:59 Thanks for the site, I am appalled at what people say! No concern what so ever for anyone who is hurting in this matter. Again though thank you. Sad for everyone involved.

Big fat fool tackled the guy holding the gun and when he hit the ground, the gun discharged striking the one killed. Should have been the big fat fool arrested for involuntary manslaughter instead of the XI being arrested. Big fat dude and others came to his house and started an argument and would not leave. XI retrieves a pistola from his house and advises them to leave do to threatening comments towards him. That is when it all happened. Cut this dude loose and sack up the other guy. You do have a right to protect yourself and property especially at night.

If he played football, he would only have 60 days in jail

Thomas Nelson II said...

I am an eye witness. Robert Cunningham (the big fat guy) is the shooter. He needs to be locked up for manslaughter. Story happened just like the anonymous poster at 11:36pm. There are more details. My brother Daniel Earl Nelson XI(11th) is innocent. I was three feet away. I saw everything. Anyone else' story besides my own is false, they were not there. Anyone who wants the true details of the event that happened on Friday June 12, 2009 look us up on facebook.

Daniel Earl Nelson XI said...

This is mister XI. I got the number XI due to the name Daniel E. Nelson being pasted down through 11 generations. As far as the "big fat guy", his finger prints were on the gun. I was trained before, during, and after the military to never place your finger on the trigger unless you plan to use it. Thus my finger prints were not on the trigger. His finger prints however "big fat guy" was on the trigger of my 9 mil s&w. He also tried to put a round in my face with my own gun, but couldn't because of a double feed. From an 18 round mag he left 3 rounds. Not sure why he would need my bullets. Stolen none the less. The whole ordeal made everyone miserable. I think about it everyday. How it went down, what I could have done differently. I have my regrets, and there isn't a day that goes by that I am not reminded of it.
