William Christopher Pettry was one of the three people involved in the deadly bar brawl inside a Jackson Florida bar early Sunday morning. Pettry had traveled to Florida to watch the Chicago Bears play.
Witnesses say that Pettry was seen talking to Matthew Hinson wife in the restaurant/ bar the night before the game. As the two men sat on a bench Hinson stood up and took out a small pocket knife and cut Pettry’s throat. Hinson then stood up and calmly walked to his car and drove off just as if nothing had happened. Police quickly pulled him over.
This is just another senseless act performed by a senseless person that now has affected many people. Sincere condolences go out to the family as they grieve the loss of a loved one. Bears coach Lovie Smith also gave the team’s condolences during a press conference on Monday.
