Items collected began to link those items with additional open ongoing MCSO investigations and additional charges are likely.

Sheriff’s deputies on the scene stated that Mr Fowler, Sr., a convicted felon, may once again face prison time as two guns were found within the residence.

Son Murdered Mom and Buried Her Under Porch


After a 3 month long investigation, Mobile County Sheriff’s Office has found the body of missing person SUSAN MAYO. Yesterday, September 6, 2017, MCSO Detectives went back to the property of Susan Mayo where she was last seen and shared a residence with her son, NATHANIEL SEBASTIAN. SEBASTIAN was released from Metro Jail the day before, September 5, for interfering with an investigation from the previous time Detectives executed a search warrant. When MCSO Detectives came back with a new search warrant, SEBASTIAN stated “his mother was buried under the porch.”

MCSO Detectives found the body believed to be that of Susan Mayo buried under the porch of the home that Mayo and SEBASTIAN shared. The body was buried approximately three feet beneath the porch inside a barrel.

Solar Eclipse Semmes Alabama Times

For Semmes Alabama:

August 21, 2017:
Start of partial eclipse: Noon
Maximum eclipse: 1:32 PM
End of partial eclipse 2:59 PM

UT or “Universal Time” is a single time standard that applies to all locations on Earth as opposed to your local time which will vary depending on your location (longitude). For all practical purposes, UT is equivalent to GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) which establishes a line of longitude that passes through Greenwich England (called the Prime Meridian) as the standard from which all other times are measured and UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) which is based on International Atomic Time (time measured very precisely as vibrations of a cesium atom). The following chart may be used to convert UT to your US time zone during the eclipse. Example: 18:23 UT = 12:23pm MDT


Fake Solar Eclipse Glasses: You May Be at Risk

Fake Solar Eclipse Glasses: You May Be at Risk


Millions of Americans will watch the Aug. 21 solar eclipse and have already purchased (or will) eclipse glasses or handheld solar viewers to do so. Some of these people may be at risk from counterfeit glasses and   by disreputable vendors trying to cash in on this rare event. Watching the eclipse with fake protective gear can cause permanent eye damage, making this a community risk reduction issue. Only glasses and viewers verified by an accredited testing laboratory to meet ISO 12312-2 are safe to use when viewing the eclipse.
