ONLY ON 3: Eyewitness in Walker County Stabbing Death Speaks Out

Posted: Updated:
WALKER COUNTY, GA (WRCB) - Walker County Deputies said they have charged a Rossville woman with murder after she stabbed her boyfriend in the chest with a steak knife, resulting in his death Saturday. 

Officials charged Patricia Ann Harrison, 50 with Murder and Domestic Violence. Her boyfriend, the victim was identified as William Drymon, 63. A close Neighbor who witnessed the stabbing spoke only with Channel 3 about the incident. 

“I want his children to know I am so sorry I know his kids loved him,” said Angie Fulmer. “He was a good friend, he was good to everyone and everyone loved him.” 

Fulmer told Channel 3 she was one of the few friends visiting with Drymon on his back porch when he was stabbed. Fulmer said Harrison walked outside of the home with a knife in her hand and out of no where stabbed him in the chest as he was sitting down. 

“I don’t even want to live here anymore…She stabbed him right here,” said Fulmer. “She pulled the knife out, bill looked down and the he looked up…he turned around to go into the house and that’s when he fell," said Fulmer. 

Deputies responded to the home around 4:45 p.m. Officials said Drymon was found lying in the doorway with a friend putting pressure to his chest. Neighbors said Harrison sat calmly on the floor as first responders carried Drymon away. 

“No it’s never going to leave my mind ever,” said Fulmer

Captain Steve Rogers Jr. with Walker County Sheriff’s Department said preliminary interviews suggest Harrison was jealous over the attention the victim was showing to another woman.

“I think she knew what she was doing,” said Capt. Rogers.  “Ms. Harrison got angry over attention the deceased was giving another person… she got mad over that.” 

Authorities said this is not the first call to the home. Since Nov 2012 deputies have responded to the residence for domestic violence a total of six times. Neighbors said the two had fought many times before and always made up with each other. In Drymon’s final moments Fulmer said it seemed like everything would be okay. 

“He was a loving person he loved everybody he always said he knew he was going to heaven because he was a kind person. He was kind to animals he was kind to anybody, he never met a stranger and he would give you the shirt off of his back. He wouldn’t let anybody go hungry,” said Fulmer. “He didn't know that was coming, we didn’t know that was coming.” 

Harrison is being held in Walker County Jail. She was denied bond during her first appearance hearing Monday afternoon. Capt. Rogers said more charges are likely.
