In an effort to save a local bookstore, an avid reader and a fellow reader shared the story of a local bookseller who was forced to close after losing a lucrative contract.
For years, a man named Bill had lived a life of crime.
In the 1980s, he started selling books from his home on the street to pay the rent.
Bill was a prolific writer and he published a series of books that included his own autobiography, which was written in a series that he called “A Guide to the Universe.”
His works were published in the local paper and in a local periodical.
The book that sold the most in his hometown, however, was a book that Bill’s sister had brought him.
The book was titled “A Way of Seeing” and was a story of an older man who had lost his way in the city, and was trying to find a way out.
“I had been in a bad place in my life, and I had come out of it a broken man,” Bill told ABC News in a recent interview.
“The book was my salvation.
I told him I was going to help him, and he was like, ‘OK, I’ll do it.’
He just needed my help.
He was like a lost soul.
He had no direction in his life, he was depressed, and in the end, he gave up.”
Bill’s sister, who worked for the state of Oklahoma, offered Bill a job as a cashier at a local paper.
Bill took it.
He found his way into the local bookstore and became an avid readership.
But things took a turn for the worse when Bill discovered his brother had a wife who was an ex-convict.
Bill became very depressed.
When he learned that his brother’s wife was a prostitute, Bill became increasingly violent.
His brother told him that his wife would have to sell him to get the money for the drug that she was taking.
Bill started to sell drugs.
His sister told him she would take the drugs and give him the money to help his brother.
Bill said he was ready to kill his brother, but he would not kill his sister.
He said he would take her and his money.
He started selling heroin and cocaine.
In 1992, Bill was caught by the state and charged with two counts of aggravated robbery.
As the years went on, Bill found himself increasingly depressed.
The violence started to creep in.
In 1999, Bill and his sister got divorced.
The next year, Bill killed his sister and shot his brother in the head with a .357 magnum revolver.
After he killed his brother and sister, Bill took his brother into his house and tied him up.
Bill told police that he stabbed his brother several times, and then shot him in the back of the head.
According to a police report, Bill then tied up his brother with the help of his sister who had been at the house the night before.
On the day of the shooting, the sister found her brother in a coma.
Bill had taken his brother to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The coroner ruled the death a homicide.
The crime scene had been set up, and Bill was already in custody.
During the investigation, Bill confessed to the crime.
He claimed he had killed his two brothers in a rage and that he was angry that his sister had taken a drug deal with a prostitute and had left him for dead.
When police arrested Bill, they found him with two .357 revolvers in his possession.
He also had a handgun.
“We were all stunned, we were all upset,” Bill’s aunt, Jennifer Oster, told ABC affiliate KFOR-TV in Oklahoma City.
“We were just in shock.
We were devastated, we just wanted to get out of there.”
After being charged, Bill spent more than a year in jail.
He spent five months in jail, and the other three months in the Oklahoma Department of Corrections.
In 2000, after spending about two years in prison, Bill’s case was reopened, and a new trial was ordered.
At the time, Bill, who was still incarcerated, claimed that he had acted alone.
The Oklahoma Supreme Court overturned the conviction and ordered a new jury trial.
The new jury found Bill not guilty of the murder of his brother but convicted him of the aggravated robbery of the woman who was his sister’s girlfriend.
He received a 10-year sentence and three years of supervised release.
Five years after his release, Bill decided to retire from his career in Oklahoma.
He wrote a book called “The Life and Times of Billie Mae” and he retired from selling drugs in 2006.
Today, Bill lives in Texas and is a pastor at a Bible college.
