A slip of paper with the word “Help” saved a kidnapped Morgan County man. Local 8 News reports that on Tuesday, February 7th, two men drove the victim, 54-year-old Ray Avril Daughtery, to the Citizens First Bank in Oliver Springs in an attempt to get cash from the victim’s account. When that proved unsuccessful, they drove him to the Citizens First Bank in Morgan County. At some point Daughtery was brutally beaten. Local 8 News reports that Daughtery walked into the second bank in Wartburg with a bloody nose and managed to slip a piece of paper with the word “Help” to one of the employees. The bank called 911, alerting both Wartburg Police and the Morgan County Sheriff's Office, who responded in just a few minutes. "I remember the lady telling me to sit down," said Daugherty. "The next thing I knew the law was right there." Wartburg Police told Local 8 News they arrested Eric W. Turner and Terry Lee Hall. Both were booked into the Morgan County Jail. Turner is being held on $7,000 bond. Hall bonded out of jail.
