In November of 2003, Mont Highley, IV’s life was full of possibilities and adventure. He’d recently interviewed with a North Carolina company and was awaiting their hiring decision, the holidays and family time were upon him, and he was looking forward to spending time hunting with his father on Saturday after spending Thanksgiving with his family. On that Friday evening, November 28, the night before their planned father-son hunting time, Mont said his goodbyes and left his parents’ home for their Shorter, AL camp they nicknamed “the farm.” It would be the last time they would speak to him or see him.
Shock and grief would fall upon the Highley family when he’s found murdered 6 weeks later, only a few short miles from the farm. Join us for Part 1 as we explore who Mont was to his family and friends and pose the question for Part 2, “What happened to Mont Highley on the fateful night that left his family and friends with unanswered questions and broken hearts?”
