    failing to appear well he ought to be taken out and shot.

    On a serious note I am glad that a professional agency caught him. One that actual has professionals working there and a a bunch of professionals at the helm. Rather than Mayberry Sheriffs Dept here in Hendry.

    Funny thing is why is he still in Charlotte? I would have thought the "posse" would have rode out during break of day and brought this scoundrel back to face "just us" Maybe Charlotte has a real investigation going on?

    Regardless of what he has been accused of doing around here, I am glad he was caught by somebody who didn't shoot first and ask questions later.

    Pretty bad when Mayberry Sheriffs deputies are going around OUR town making statements openly about what THEY would do if they saw him.

    The family of Caine Faxon is pleading for any information regarding Caine Faxon's unsolved cold-blooded murder. This has turned his family upside down since it happened in 1998. It has literally aged and ripped his mother's heart out, as well as all of Caine's family members and friends. We are desperately seeking any info that could help us solve this case. The smallest piece of info may not seem important to you but it could be the missing small link that we desperately need. Caine Faxon was a popular, good kid, with a clean and outstanding record and did not deserve this. We as a family, as a mother, sister, grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins, and friends, are asking for your help. This terrible tragedy could happen to any family and we pray that if you have any information please contact the Hendry County Sheriff's Dept, Glades County Sheriff's Dept, or FDLE. You can also contact family members: Uncle Stet, Shonna, Billy, Mona, or any other known family member. There is an $111,000 + cash reward for any information that leads to the solving of this case. All information will be held 100 percent private. Thank you.
    P.S. Picture yourself as a mother finding your son lying dead on the floor, after only being gone for just a few minutes. Imagine all the horrific nightmares over the last decade.
    Think about it and please help.

  6. I am still in awe that Hendry County’s law enforcement hasn’t solved thi case. I’m praying that the Faxon Family will get closer with respect to this investigation. It’s been cold for too long.
