Brewer charged with stealing $78,000 from Jackson Brothers Auto Service in 2014

The Lawrence County Grand Jury met on Friday, October 13th and while they only returned with seven Indictments, one of those includes the murder of Landyn T. Ballou.

Nicholas BallouNicholas BallouNicholas Ballou, the boy's father who is currently serving time for the horrific injuries that he inflicted upon his then two month old son in August of 2011 was indicted for murder last week.

The child suffered from cerebral palsy, permanent brain damage and was legally blind after the abuse from his own father. Ballou took an Alford Plea, accepting no responsibility for the child’s injuries that included multiple skull fractures and brain injuries.

Ballou, who went on the run from police for an extended time before being caught in Morgan Co. told his now ex-wife Amy that the baby had choked on his baby bottle. However, the child suffered major head trauma that left him legally blind and with permanent brain damage with three skull fractures.

Landyn has since died from the injuries and the Commonwealth is now charging Mr. Ballou with murder.

I remember years ago before ballou was even sentenced he had to live in the hole and they would get a hour or so of recreation and most of the time that rec was in the church room which used to be the weekender room 8 or 9 years ago. I was the barber I would cut hair up front in the visitation booths a couple times a week. One day the c.o. approached me and asked if I would cut them boys hair one of them have court coming up and I smiled and said, "sure will" the c.o. returned the smile as I was cutting Ballou's hair he was trying to chat but I wasn't having it, he said a family member of mine and I instantly smacked his brains out plum out of the chair. Just as I mounted the c.o.s rushed in I wish I could have done more but he knew who I was after that.

Quoting Velsie Hewlett:
In my opinion, Ballou doesn’t deserve to live!

The electric chair should be brought back for him.

Wow! Gary was a model citizen all his life and then he starts doing this crazy stuff. First with H&R Block (I think) and now this with Jackson Bros? The love of money is indeed the root of all evil
