The Williamson Daily News has confirmed that federal investigators and members of the West Virginia State Police (WVSP) have recently been to the Mingo County Courthouse.
“I shook his hand,” said Frank Yates, a local citizen who frequents the Mingo County Courthouse. “He had a funny last name.”
When asked if the name was (Joe) Ciccarelli, Yates said, “Yeah, that’s it. He was kidding me about my walking stick.” Yates carries a long cane/walking stick around with him all the time.
