It’s scary how fear can take the place of everything else in someone’s mind, even a person’s sense of judgement. Fear changed the life of a former SEAL trainee. Dustin Turner, (also known as Dusty) and Billy Joe Brown were accused and convicted of murdering Jennifer Evans in Virginia on June 19, 1995 at a nightclub.
