WONDERING ABOUT CALANDRA STALLWORTH
I highly doubt she just got up and decided to leave. She had children, her family is local!
Did you forget to mention the fact that her own vehicle was found with her "boyfriend" and (another woman)? How is she going to disappear without transportation or her phone? Come on...

CRESTVIEW IS NO NEW ORLEANS
What a joke, "Crestview is not safe.”
Crestview is modern-day Mayberry .... with Sheriff Andy and Deputy Barney.
Sure, there (are) homeless people, drugs, petty theft and the occasional local that is rude and (wants) to fight at the drop of a dime.
But really .... this is not New Orleans or Chicago. Those cities have a crime problem.
What is the violent crime rate? How many murders, rapes, kidnappings, carjackings, home invasions, gang wars?
There is not a street in Crestview that I would not walk down.
CONFUSION AT JOHN KING LIGHT
I agree, there's a lot of distracted driving. However, at the John King light, people turn LEFT on RED from the southbound lane frequently. There is also a lack of understanding the right of way in the east and westbound lanes.
U-TURNS ALSO A FACTOR
Yes, texting is a major factor in the wrecks. At the intersection of John King, people making U-TURNS is also a factor. I see many near misses every day there.
TOO MANY HAZARDOUS VEHICLES
I have been wondering for some time if Crestview is a sanctuary city not necessarily for illegals but for vehicles without proper lights. I see 10 to 15 cars every time I leave the house that have headlights out, tail lights (and) brake lights out. We need to do something about this, folks.
