    It sure did ring a bell. As an Illinois shooter from the 70's I knew Illinois hall of fame shooter Jerry Sedlacek by reputation, but not personally.
    Maryville, Illinois is 5 miles from Troy, Illinois, Jerry Sedlacek's home town.
    The news report said that Terry Sedlacek's parents are named Abernathy, but they are also from Troy, Illinois.
    That's as much as I could determine, but it sure seems there could be a connection.

    More info.. It appears that Abernathy is only his mother's name, not his father's. Terry was living with her in Troy after the whole Lyme disease thing,which they speculate he caught from a tick because he is an avid hunter and outdoorsman. It's looking more and more like what you think.

    Prayers are certainly needed. Churches are soft targets, along with schools and political buildings. Keep up the prayers for the family and our country. Michael and Jane

    God Bless the victim and family.

    And people wonder why I carry my Sunday gun to church. Maybe they wouldn't be such soft targets if we all did.
