On Saturday, November 17 supporters gathered to run the UCP Krispy Kreme Run annual 5k in downtown Huntsville. This year though there were dozens of supporters dressed in bright pink shirts to support ‘Justice for Brandon Hydrick.’ They donned pink shirts and ran the race to honor the recently slain 26-year-old Brandon, who was shot in cold-blood while riding as a passenger of a truck by the mobile home of Joel Moyers, a Limestone County resident.
Moyers was released on bail despite the fact that his crime is a capital murder offense, a charge that does not allow release until trial. In spite of all of the negativity surrounding the death of an innocent, hardworking, intelligent, handsome, and kind man, those of us who were close to him would like to have something positive flourish from this tragedy. The first step began with running in the U.C.P. race wearing ‘Justice for Brandon’ t-shirts.
If you would like to weigh in on this tragedy please email firstname.lastname@example.org who has released the shooter on bail and charged him with reckless murder, a much lesser charge than capital murder. The message need not be long — a simple — “I support a capital murder charge for Jody Moyers, killer of Brandon Hydrick” —- would suffice. Personally, I have taken it one step higher to the Attorney General of Alabama, Luther Strange. Here is his number if you would like to voice your opinion also: 334-242-7300.
