EXTRA:The Springford Murders: 10 Years Later
The murders of Charlotte and Brent Springford made national headlines in November 2004. Investigators say they've never seen anything like that murder. But there was one witness, who police wouldn't allow to speak about what happened. He's the man who found the Springfords dead and tonight, he's talking.
But 10 years back in time on Thanksgiving Day in a home on South Hull Street...
Brent was the President of the Pepsi Cola Bottling Company in Luverne -- a company that brought in more revenue to Crenshaw County than any other there. Armstrong was Springford's right-hand man at Pepsi -- he was also his best friend, and the person who found him and his wife dead inside their Montgomery Garden District home.
A multi-state investigation began. First, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where investigators collected evidence on the Springford's black Jaguar. Shortly after, Alabama News Network got this phone call from Brent Springford Jr. himself...
But in 2013, Springford Jr. committed suicide. He overdosed on Tylenol while in state prison.
Armstrong says during that time, Springford Jr.was in a relationship with a Navaho Indian Witch Doctor, who he says, played a negative influence in his life.
