Branson Mary Kinney and Jack Branson Murder in Mayberry Greed Death and Mayhem in a Small Town 2008 Well penned account replete with local colorAlthough the details in a true crime book are known I want the potential reader of this review to BEWARE of possible SPOILERSThe perp here is Russell Winstead age about 40 height six foot one weight probably about 180 pounds He has all the makings of a classical sociopath but as yet nobody knows it because he hasn’t really stepped over the line He’s charming to women He has an indulgent father in Earl Winstead and an even accommodating rich aunt named Ann Branson Why he needs to be indulged is because of his gambling addiction He tried NASCAR racing He liked the rush but he didn’t have the talent Then he discovered blackjack and saw himself as a professional gambler He loved playing the role of the high roller getting comp’ed having a casino limo pick him up flashing Bengies all over the place impressing cocktail waitress etc Only problem was Russell Winstead was a loserSo one night the night of January 12 2003 to be exact he goes once to the well that is 86 year old Ann Branson for another “loan” He’s already in debt to her for maybe 70000 and apparently she refuses In a rage he chases her down the basement stairs and crushes her skull with a blunt instrument and then goes on to stab her some seventy or so timesEnter Mary Kinney Branson wife of Ann Branson’s other nephew Jack Branson then a US Treasure Special Agent now retired He’s about the same height as Russell but there the similarities end Where Russell is reckless and uncaring about other people Jack is careful and very caring Where Russell fails and needs propping up Jack succeeds Where Russell is vain about his looks and worries about a growing bald spot Jack is modest and his hairline is not receding So in a sense this is a story about the contrasting lives of these two menMary Branson tells the story from some distance because she is not a blood relative and as she says in Madisonville Kentucky “blood matters” Note that as in “The Andy Griffith Show” and “Mayberry RFD” there is no actual Mayberry The “Mayberry” in the title is a state of mind Call it the mind and the lifestyle of a small town in AmericaWhat sets this true crime story apart from many others I have read is the fact that Mary through her husband Jack and his connections and through her being a member of the family and the community is in an enviable if that’s the right word position for getting the true milieu of the story Further since she is a veteran writer of children’s stories you can be sure that her prose is clear readable and without any four letter words What I found most fascinating and what kept me turning the pages were the many lifestyle details that Mary Branson gives of the people involved and the portrait she paints of the small town life and its values—not to mention how she also reveals herself sometimes inadvertently I’ll just mention the nearly constant eating out at fast food establishmentsHere’s an example of Mary Branson at her most vivid The trial has begun and she’s watching She writes “Once I’d walked into our family room to find our three year old grandson Taylor holding his eyelids open as he watched a cartoon on television I asked what he was doing and he said ‘I’m keeping my eyes from blinking This is my favorite part of the cartoon and I don
