Product Information

On Wednesday November 1, 2006, Robert Whiteside at age 56, was found by his partner Warren Butler, murdered at his Veranda. It was apparent that the murder occurred during a robbery the night of October 30. 

The convicted shooter, Mark Aaron Rains, a 21-year-old local once employed by Whiteside to help in his kitchen, was quickly found and arrested in Dallas by the repeated use of Robert’s credit card at a local gas station. He admitted three times to the crime and escaped once from jail. In exchange for the release of friends who aided in his escape and in order to avoid the death sentence, Rains plead guilty on July 1, 2008. 

On July 8, 2008 at the Franklin County Courthouse, Rain’s was sentenced to life imprisonment without possibility of parole
