Minister's Wife Drives to My Home Area

Orange Beach and Gulf Shores, AL are located on pleasure island, my home area along the shores of the Gulf of Mexico. Spring Break is in full swing on the beach with car tags from many different states. It did not stop the local police from noticing a TN license plates NDX-288 of a gray 2006 Toyota Sienna van though. My sister called this morning, to see if I had heard the news. Last night before going to sleep I heard that they had picked up Mary Winkler and she was being questioned. I actually know the police officer that spotted her, what a small town I am from. (smiling)

I admit yesterday, when I posted about the amber alert that this sounded suspicious about the pastor being shot and no sign of forced entry into the home.

The four were staying in a local motel and were on their way to get something to eat when they were stopped, Duck said. Officers from the Orange Beach department later got meals from McDonald's for the youngsters, he said.
The mother was "very peaceful" and the four would have appeared to onlookers to be on spring break, Duck said. Officers hadn't yet inventoried the vehicle by the time of the news conference, he said.
