    In my opinion he is just as guilty as any other, Any one can say they didn't do it but having the right person to point out at the right time is overwhelming. if so happens he is innocent its just a matter of time before justice will be served. No Matter who it may be, im just glad the do at least have follow up's. May God be with Micheal Flora and Bless his family to the fullest, something great will happen in the eye's of our redeemer.
