In Montreal Liz went by the name Nikki. She learned to knit and spent a lot of time reading books. The one lovely detail in all the articles written by Berthiaume is the presence of her dog Molly. Somehow, Liz had managed to bring Molly with her. After Molly got in a fight with a cat and lost an eye, Liz pushed her around in a stroller. Liz and Molly got to have their adventures after all. The Liz Nikki that Berthiaume writes about sounds fearless.
She won awards in Montreal for horseback riding. She took flying lessons. However, in the year before her murder, anxiety began to overtake her life. It seems Liz was still connected to Jeffrey Colegrove, the man who supplied the marijuana trafficked by the Lembersky gang in Virginia.
She had a few friends, but not many. She had a trust issue with people from what I know. At the end of her life, she became more cautious. Kevin Connolly is a supervisor with the U. During a phone interview he told me that they suspected she was in Canada. Like an addiction, my obsession picked up where it left off and got much, much worse. Before I knew it, I was emailing with the owner of the blog telling him all the things that were wrong with his post.
Back to blowing off my responsibilities, I spent hours talking to these people. One day I got a message from a woman who said she had a friend who knew Liz, mentioning the dog and a few other things that it made it sound like she was telling the truth.
We spoke via Facebook message and one day she told her version of what happened to Liz. She said the man who killed Liz was simply a crazy person who had nothing to do with the drug trade. A few weeks after we started talking, the Facebook account disappeared, but not before we had one last conversation. She said she was leaving town to get away from the guy who had killed Liz. To me, reaching out to them based on a few Facebook messages was that final step too far.
My life had been subsumed by messages and comments and articles, and if there was anything I should have been learning from the experience it was that life is precious.
A lot of people remember beautiful things about Liz. Rest in peace my dearest sweet Elizabeth. I thought about it a lot too, or rather, I thought about them. I saw photos of her mother helping people in impoverished countries. Her parents only commented on the case once, to Claudia Berthiaume.
She spoke about the day the police called looking for her daughter. They told me they could put [her] in prison for life, but it would be less bad if she cooperated. It could have saved her life to do so.
But I understand why she did not. She never betrayed a friend, it was her code of honor. On a desk inside the empty apartment where Liz had been living there was a handwritten list of final wishes. It seemed that Liz knew she was going to die. She wanted her possessions to be sold and the money to be donated to animal shelters. I hope that Liz got the chance to come around. People are a lot more than just a collection of choices. Nobody gets a report card at the end of it all.
Perhaps the closest you could come is to collect all the memories of the people they touched, all the ways they made them feel. I cherish them, and now, after all of this, they feel more real than they ever did before. Rest in peace, Elizabeth. We humans are far more complex than the news headlines and clickbait would have you believe. Let the Narratively newsletter be your guide. Fed up with the crooked local machine, GIs took to the streets with rifles and ran them out of town.
Wise had a problem. He was about to lose his job, and he had to watch it happen. Wise had been posted at the city waterworks office on North Madison Street in Athens, Tennessee, since before nine a. Wise and the others had allegedly pilfered money from the citizens of McMinn County for more than a decade.
They had also allegedly murdered two GIs during the war. But now the town had finally had enough. The glares made Windy scared and angry. Someone needed to do something, he thought. Tom Gillespie, a black farmer, stepped inside the waterworks to cast his vote. He came in strong and confident. He worked for a beloved Quaker family, and like them, Gillespie was a proud and peaceful man. He produced his poll tax receipt to the election officials and received a ballot. As he stepped up to cast his vote the sweat-soaked Windy blocked his path with a wild look in his eyes, like an animal cornered by its own hubris.
Everything in the room seemed to cease motion. The room was hot and stuffy. After a moment, Gillespie spoke. Windy was a thug, a bully; to back down would be tantamount to defeat.
All he knew was to plow forward. Tom Gillespie turned and fled, spurred along with a hard shove. But Gillespie was determined to vote. It was his right, and no corrupt, racist deputy was going to stop him.
He collected himself, opened the door to the precinct, and walked back into the waterworks. He leaned against a wall with his arms folded defiantly and glared. When Windy saw him he flew into a rage. Then he jerked his pistol from its holster and fired a bullet into Tom Gillespie. B efore the battle, there was the parade. On a cool Saturday in November , ten months before Windy Wise shot Tom Gillespie for participating in democracy, the folks of McMinn County celebrated the end of a world war against fascism.
Some 3, young men, ten percent of the county, had enlisted in the armed forces and fought across Europe and the Pacific, participating in heavy combat in places like Guadalcanal and Normandy. More than had been killed. But the war was over. Flags snapped and shuddered in the autumn wind as the crowd cheered with an uncommon roar. But the mood amongst some of the GIs as they marched down North Jackson Street was somewhat less than jovial. Trouble had long been brewing at home.
Sherriff Mansfield, a transplant from Georgia, had come into the office on the coattails of newly elected State Senator Paul Cantrell. Mansfield quickly turned the county into a veritable cash register for himself and the deputies. The more arrests they made, the more money they earned. All this came to a low boil during the war when two service members on leave were killed by deputies while at a pair of nearby roadhouses, according to a article by Theodore H.
If democracy was good enough to put on the Germans and the Japs, it was good enough for McMinn County, too! The problems in the county only compounded once the GIs returned home flush with savings. Well, deputies running around four or five at a time grabbing up every GI they could find and trying to get that money off of them… They were kind of making a racket out of it. When these things happened, the GIs got madder — the more GIs they arrested, the more they beat up, the madder we got.
The corruption in McMinn County was, at least in shades, part-and-parcel for the state, which was under the influence of a political machine run by old-school Democratic boss E. The veterans had an uphill battle. In an early meeting with veterans, Otto Kennedy, a Republican adviser to the fledgling party, made it plain that the establishment party would cook the books unless they deployed poll watchers on Election Day.
Kennedy recommended 50 armed men placed at each voting precinct. Yet the veterans were reluctant to surround polling precincts with weapons. Organize to keep them from taking the election.
So I got out and started organizing with a bunch of GIs. I had 30 men and… I took what mustering out pay I got and bought pistols.
T he county was up early on Election Day, August 1, It was a Thursday. As early as 7: Tensions between the deputies and the GIs were high. Veterans patrolled the polling stations with guns strapped to their waists. The GIs had learned from old party members all the tricks used to cook the vote.
One method involved killing the power to the polling station and swapping rigged ballot boxes in the darkness. Another involved simply miscounting the votes — one opposition vote counted for a half-dozen or so incumbent votes, according to Byrum. The problems began almost immediately.
When a GI poll watcher asked that a ballot box be opened to verify it as empty, he was promptly arrested. In Etowah, on the east side of the county, a GI election judge was tossed out of a precinct and hauled off by police when he demanded a ballot box be inspected. No matter who won, people on both sides would have to live together once the election was over. This was an election that would define the social landscape of a rural county in a region baked with grudges and feuds that were as old as the hills.
The old guard felt change in the air — change they could not stop. After Gillespie had been carted away, Pat Mansfield motored from the county jail with a carload of deputies and sealed off the waterworks. Inside, the vote counting had begun. The deputies pushed out the GI poll watchers. The counters, with deputies lording over them, tallied five Democratic votes for every one non-partisan vote.
Once finished, the deputies absconded with the boxes to what they presumed was a safe place to dispose of the true ballots — the county jail.
After word went out that the count had been corrupted, Athens boiled into a rage. For those who showed up unarmed, White and his cadre of veterans raided the nearby National Guard armory for rifles.
Bill White was a rugged brawler. He loved to fight. He had been through some of the toughest campaigns in the early part of the Pacific campaign. He led 60 armed veterans near the campus of Tennessee Wesleyan College, not far from the jail, where he split them into two groups, which took up positions that largely surrounded the jail. But they left the rear uncovered.
Give up the ballot boxes! A voice rang out from amongst the guns aimed at the jail: When veterans Harold Powers and Edgar Miller tried to cross the street, a deputy fired a shotgun from inside the jail, wounding them in the neck and shoulder.
A pistol shot and a burst from a submachine gun followed it. Byrum speculates the shot might have been designed not to wound, but simply to scare off the crowd of veterans. If so, it failed. The veterans opened fire, which was returned by the deputies. For a good 30 minutes both sides snapped at each other, then the fire settled into pace according to mood and whim — sometimes rising, other times falling. Windows were shot out; streetlights, shingles, pebbles and whole chunks of masonry and brick were chipped from the thick jail walls.
According to Byrum, a radio used to monitor the battle four blocks away was shot out by a stray bullet. The fighting continued off-and-on for the rest of the evening and into the early morning, with both sides refusing to budge.
The veterans had a great position and the spiritual weight of the town in their corner. Mansfield and his deputies had the jail as a fortress and the weighty preponderance and presumption of law and order in theirs. Who would break first was simply a matter of time and logistics, unless some convening force intervened. No one is sure where the veterans found the dynamite. Byrum suggested it came from a nearby hardware store, but other sources claim that men from another county brought it after hearing reports of the fighting on the radio.
The first stick rolled under a nearby car, flipping it upside down with the explosion. The second blew up in the grass. The third time, however, men taped together a few sticks of dynamite into one large charge. This is where the story splits. According to Byrum, the dynamite was tossed from the Jeep like the first time. Crawled back behind the building there and it went off and blew the porch up. I had this other big charge so I went up and laid it right up against the jail.
When it went off it jarred that jail. T he political situation in McMinn County quieted down once the deputies surrendered and the ballots could be counted without interference. By August 5, the vote tally showed the GI candidate for sheriff, a veteran named Knox Henry, along with their candidates for trustee, circuit court clerk, and register of deeds, had all won handily. Later that day, Paul Cantrell conceded the election.
He left McMinn County and never returned. The veterans, for all their good intentions, had violated something that had been a tenant of American politics since the Whiskey Rebellion: Many of them could have been arrested and tried under an assortment of federal charges, even if they were in the right.
Yet no charges were ever brought down on any veteran or organizer. He was sentenced to a stunningly light one- to three-year prison stretch for shooting Tom Gillespie, who made a full recovery. Some GIs wanted blood, revenge for old wrongs, scores settled in old South ways — eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth. They wanted me to control the GIs. I had 16 fights in one weekend.
White stated that the profit-based policing, which launched so much grief prior to the election, remained in play for another four years. Aside from a wave of initial press reporting and a few minor copycats, the Battle of Athens was inevitably buried in the soil of the town and pressed into lore. The old party loyalties in the county resurfaced as if hard-wired into the psyche of the region. O n a hot and humid night last June, I steered my car over twisting country roads toward a small lakeside town for a romantic rendezvous.
I had spent the day at a funeral, reflecting on the fact that at fifty, I had more miles behind me than ahead. Oddly, my paramour had also spent the day at a funeral, and as the summer sun disappeared we made plans to meet halfway between our towns for a drink.
It was nearly eleven when I turned my car onto Main Street, and James was growing impatient. We were speaking on the phone when I caught a glimpse of him. Strikingly handsome, he looked at least a decade younger than his 61 years. Running and doing chores on his rural property kept his body lean and muscular, and his face betrayed few traces of the anguish I knew lay in his heart.
James met me at my car, and as we walked toward the restaurant he put his arm around me. I felt a shudder of excitement run down my spine and I pushed in closer to feel his body. When we sat at the bar he swiveled his chair, pushed his knees against mine, and leaned in close to talk. Our faces were pressed within whispering distance and I inhaled his scent. The drinks we ordered were superfluous; this was all a graceful dance of foreplay. The bar was teeming with a coarse-looking crowd of men and women who had deeply lined faces and leather jackets.
The fact that we were completely out of place only heightened our excitement. We huddled and made witty comments about the antics of other patrons, parting only to fling our heads back in hysterics. We sat at the bar laughing and kissing, and before long James ran his hand up my leg and under my skirt. On previous dates he had teased me about being a Puritan in public, but X-rated in private, but that night I made no attempt to be discreet.
It felt mischievous to be strangers in a raucous tavern far from home in the middle of the night. We reveled in escaping the constricting bonds of our everyday lives — him a lawyer, me a divorced single mother. Our behavior was an unspoken act of defiance against the taunt of age, and the gloom of funerals that had become a common part of our lives. Outside the restaurant James kissed me deeply and with a new fervency. We were passionately entangled while patrons passed by, and I whispered that we needed to go somewhere private.
James began walking me to my car, and I assumed I would follow him to the adjacent hotel, or to his house an hour away. When we got to my car he told me to get in the back seat. I refused, saying that my kids had left a mess in my car. James took my hand and led me across the lot to his immaculately clean Mercedes.
James was right behind, and before I heard the click of the door closing he was kissing me. It was futile to fight the longing we had been feeling for the past hours. Soon, all thoughts of motherhood and what was proper disappeared. We had been together many times before, but that night we devoured each other. In the days and weeks that followed we frequently reminisced about our romp in the car, and how it brought us back to our adolescence; a time of freedom and endless promise, a time before responsibilities and painful regrets.
After years getting paid to bare my breasts at more clubs than I can count, when my funds hit an all-time low I pioneered a cleaner brand of sex work. When I arrive at the house of the first viable person to respond to my Craigslist ad, I knock on the door and take a step back. He opens it right away. I like his work jeans and dirty white t-shirt, though. They feel kind of homey. I step in, a little flirty, but all-business to begin with. Just when the tour is complete my phone rings.
Call me in like an hour. I turn to JimJohn and start to pull my shirt off, then stop. I shove it down one of my stockings as I take my pants off, because I have always believed that the safest place for my money is right against my skin. Half a tank of gas and two blueberry smoothies later, it dwindled to sixteen dollars folded together in the bottom of my pocket. For some people, this might have been a problem, but not for me. Sex work is my trust fund.
Whenever I discover a new form of sex work — the weirder or more interesting the better — I try to experience it. Possum drew me a map showing how to get to the two strip clubs he knows of: I decided to try the small one first. The small one turned out to be a brothel with very little business, where I met some very beautiful, very southern women, including a pound dancer named Hamhock who I wish I could introduce to every teenager worrying about their weight ever.
I was too fat for the big one, or the door guy was having a bad day. I started to feel a little panic. I do the kitchen first, like my friend Tania who actually grew up in a mansion and knows how to clean explained to me last night on the phone. I keep up a steady stream of flirting while I put his dishes in the dishwasher and move everything on the counter to one end so I can clean it. The counter is dirty, covered in stains and puddles of dried-up food and glue and who knows what else.
Scrubbing while bending over a counter in six-inch heels, back arched so that your ass sticks up pretty, is hard work. Especially while flirting the whole time with a man you hope is staring at your ass and not your sweaty face. He asks about me, how I came to be a topless housecleaner. If you watch television you know what happens to broke homeless women: Jim is amazingly empathetic about the nastiness of the local clubs.
His story is interesting. All his time goes to his race-car business, which is like a dream, but lots of hard work. Steely grey eyes and his young tough look contrast with his docile nature as he tamely follows me around his house. He opens his wallet and peels off another hundred, right away, and tells me to just dance until that runs out.
I pretend to think hard, then: I pretend to think long and hard, though. That is not for sale! He has gentle, well-practiced hands that he swirls around my nipples and brushes softly over my ass. I arch my back and gasp in pretend ecstasy.
Soon he wants more again — a hand job, a hundred dollars. A couple hundred more for a hand job, a couple hundred more for a blow job, a lot more for sex. It could be a grand, easily. But do I want to have sex with this guy? The other thing is, sometimes I think I could be bisexual, and every year or two I have a man sex experiment. My phone rings again. Do I look like that kind of girl? This makes , or is it ?
Or 2, miles and a month or two of groceries and stuff while I explore desert canyons and sky islands. What more could a girl need? I slide down between his legs and he unzips his jeans eagerly. It is small, with a nice curve and for a second I love it and want to fuck him. He gasps and wiggles a little, and I take his cock in my hand. He moans and half thrusts his hips. When I finally grab his cock, two-handed, and give it a couple strong, twisting strokes, he explodes right away.
While he cleans up, I pull my jeans and tank top back on over my fishnets and thong. I make myself look totally calm while I throw my iPod and cleaning stuff in the bag I came with, give him a goodbye hug, and tell him he should really call me again to clean the rest of the house. Then I fold over in my seat, laughing and clapping my hands with excitement. Leaning back, I push my hips up to pull my jeans down and start fishing the hundreds out of my fishnets.
The next day Spot and I get in the van and drive across the country until I find a beautiful desert-sky island in northern Arizona. I stay for a couple weeks, playing in a creek and tracking coyote, before I get low on money again and start over. She lives in a little cabin in a big boreal forest and she is working on a memoir. My analyst and I grew more intimately connected each week of treatment My entire body feels tense, not ideal for the setting.
I try to relax, but the plush leather couch crumples under me when I shift, making the movements extraordinary. Of course it has. On the surface, when the patient has been highly selective of the discussion topics, therapy always resembles a friendly get-together. I so supremely wanted this not to come up.
She quickly and convincingly pointed out that I work rather hard and am, ultimately, paying my bills on time, that I have friends, an appreciation for arts and culture, and so on. Then Lori heightened the discussion a bit. I was too insecure and too single to handle such a compliment from a beautiful woman. I shrugged my shoulders, only half looking up. I laughed a little, uncomfortably. She gently explained she could tell the day I walked into her office for the first time, after I flashed a bright smile and casually asked where she was from.
Lori snorts, rolls her eyes. I smile, shake my head and look around the room, denying acceptance of my own ridiculous reality. I look again at her stark blue eyes, prevalent under dark brown bangs, the rest of her hair reaching the top of her chest, which is hugged nicely by a fitted white tee under an open button-down. Do you bend me over and take me from behind? I take a second to let the red flow out of my face, and ponder what she said.
So I go home, incredibly turned on and completely unashamed. In treatment I came to realize that all people have contradictions to their personalities. In my case, my extreme sensitivity can make me feel fabulous about the aspects of myself that I somehow know are good my artistic tastes and cause deep hatred of those traits I happen to loathe the thirty pounds I could stand to lose.
My next session with Lori is productive. One constant is that I put crudely high expectations on others, mirroring those thrown upon me as a kid.
