After the mysterious disappearance of Emory Wilty from the Beaufort County road crew, his gloves and vest turned up as a scarecrow in Mrs. Powhites garden.  Mrs. Powhite, who never had a good thing to say about anybody, admitted to murdering Emory.  She said, "he came to my door asking for water but I knew what he was up to.  He was the devils apprentice sent to retrieve my soul from this earth and his costume is very good at scaring away the birds."
