When asked, he told her his car had been “hit by a black truck with a Dothan tag near Herring Avenue.” In the days that followed, Barrentine would confide to others that he knew something about the murders of the two teens found on Herring Avenue.
“He just said he thought he might know who did it,” said Avalyn Murphy, whose boyfriend, Leon Jordan, encouraged Barrentine to go to the authorities and collect the reward.

B.’s body and clothing, the neighbor he implicated had an alibi for the evening and the DNA from the semen did not match that of Barrentine or the neighbor. When his arrest was announced at a press conference, Spivey said police were confident they had arrested the right man. You’re between a rock and a hard place.”Barrentine was held without bond in the Dale County jail from the time of his arrest September 1. Mc Lauchlin denied Barrentine bond and appointed 36-year veteran lawyer Bill Kominos to represent the defendant.
Barrentine, whose mug shot makes him look as though he might have just been startled from a deep sleep, immediately admitted he’d fabricated the whole story in hopes of scoring some quick cash. In an October 18 bond hearing before Circuit Judge P. Mc Lauchlin, Barrentine denied he was involved in the killings, though he had told police he watched the two 17-year-olds shot to death by an acquaintance who had “tattoos all over his arms.” Barrentine told the judge he never picked up a tattooed man and didn’t see anything the night of the murders. Barrentine’s friends and family stood by him, professing his innocence to anyone who would listen.

Barrentine said he heard two gunshots and when the man returned, Barrentine gave him a ride from the scene and then went home.

He gave Spivey a name and was told that police had already checked out the rumor and the man Barrentine named was not a suspect.Also several days after the murder, Barrentine reportedly said he and his wife and brother-in-law went to the scene on Herring Street where the car was found looking for something that might help the police solve the case. To spur that hope, families and friends will gather Thursday for a candlelight prayer vigil on Herring Avenue in Ozark, where the 17-year-old Northview High School girls were found shot to death in the trunk of J. Tracie’s mother, Carol Roberts, later said, “Nothing was wrong in Tracie’s voice. It was the last time anyone other than their killer saw them alive. Tracie were reported missing and at almost the same time, Ozark police officers found the black Mazda 929 parked on Herring Avenue, less than a mile from the pay phone Tracie Hawlett had used the night before.
