EDITED: JANUARY 18 2012
When Troy Colt Griffin lost his cellphone in April of 2011, his horrid proclivities were discovered. The pervert used the device's camera function to take and store pictures of himself having sex with a seven-year-old girl. Thankfully the snoopy finder of the phone had a look through his photo archive.
Later in the year, he was convicted of his crime and was sentenced to 50 years without the possibility of parole. A person very close to the case tells Hair Balls that she wished death were an option.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
