I knew Jocelyn Dooley for over 10 years, before she married "uncle bubba" and considered her my best friend, my sister. I cared a great deal for Vol as well, I used to spend weekends at their home in Plain Dealing, riding horses and helping Vol with the breading. I personally NEVER saw this coming and I believed her when she said that she didn't do it. But then I never knew what a great liar she was until after this happened. The Joshie I knew I did not think was capable of doing this to him. It became almost a game of figuring out what she was telling the truth about. That was very sad! The thing that really makes me mad and frustrates me to this very date. Kosden, who helped her bury the body and turned on her the last minute, got off scott free! In my opinion and the knowledge that I have on this case. This man should be in jail right next to Joshie(Dooley) Joshie was her nickname. I am, and have been sad for Vol and Kneale. They are great children that did not deserve this. I pray that Teresa and Steve will take great care of them. I've spent a lot of time with them over the years and will miss them dearly.
