Murder in Brynn Marr

Lindell Kay | Closer Look,local crime | Tuesday, November 17th, 2009

Before moving out to Hubert, I lived in this area of Jacksonville for almost two years. I think it is wonderful neighborhood.

The usually quiet neighborhood was rocked late Monday night by the shooting death of a a man family said had no enemies.

Kevin Foley grew up in Jacksonville and graduated from a local high school. He is dead now.

  1. I do not live too far from this area. And this news certainly took my by surprise. But just in the last year I’ve noticed a change. A couple of weeks ago some drunk raided my neighbor’s car, stole her purse, and then fell asleep in another neighbor’s car. Drivers speed through that area and often pass around cars which travel at the speed limit of 25mph – there is no passing, it is a residential street, not a highway. And just last night some crazed woman decided to lay her self in the middle of the street screaming about how she did not want to hang herself in a closet.

  2. I totally agree with Smith. The neighborhood has gradually gone downhill since I moved into it 5 years ago.

    I thought the woman last night was hit by a car or something, I didn’t know she was trying to kill herself. I saw her right when the cops showed up. Most of the houses that were bought years ago are now occupied by renters and they don’t always seem to care what happens to the house or neighborhood because they can always just leave.
