Georgia Belle Sullivan of Clinton, La., will never know if her
former employee, Arthur Sanford, came back for money, revenge or
both. Sullivan was up late watching television when she heard a
noise that caused her two dogs to start barking wildly. She took her
pistol and went to investigate, but before she fully realized what
was happening a shadowy figure lunged at her. Although she fired at
the intruder, he kept coming and the two struggled for the gun.
Sullivan said, "He beat me with his fists. He was trying to get the
gun out of my hand, but he never did." Sanford continued to attack,
saying that he wanted money, until his grip finally loosened and he
died on the spot from the gunshot wound to his chest. Sanford had
worked on Sullivan's cattle farm for years, but had been fired three
years earlier because of suspected drug use. Sanford also had a
history of arrests for armed robbery.
