A Delta mechanic from Barnesville helped capture escaped prison inmate James Kelly on Friday afternoon, but the hero said he had a lot of help from Jim Beam.
Keith Hightower, 50, and friends Erick Rodriguez, 41, of Jenkinsburg and Dan Owen, 47, of Marietta had gathered for a weekend campout at their Tobesofkee Creek Hunting Club just south of Forsyth off Hwy. 42 on Friday night when they saw what they thought was a homeless man in the camp.
