Placeholder Image
A family returning from church Sunday afternoon discovered the body of a man who was killed when his motorcycle ran off the roadway – the victim lying in the woods for what lawmen believe was a couple days.The victim, Roy Thomas Weddington, 52, likely died late Thursday night or Friday morning, investigators believe, when he crashed his motorcycle on a remote stretch of Jacksboro Road (Highway 287) about two miles from Morrison.Evidence at the scene suggests Weddington was traveling north on Jacksboro Road when he lost control of his 2001 Yamaha while negotiating a curve. The motorcycle then hit a ditch and three trees, throwing the rider from the seat and into a wooded area about 15 feet off the road. The motorcycle, which was in several pieces from the force of impact, was barely noticeable from the road.
