Who is Edgar Egbert, the Madison County Shooter?
Tuesday, September 10th, 2019
Last week, Deputy Brad Sullivan of the Madison County Sheriff’s Department was shot through the head with an AR-15 style rifle after police deployed stop sticks to prevent a speeding Jeep from injuring the public on Highway 16 near Canton. It all stemmed from a domestic situation that resulted in a kidnapping, according to officials with Madison County. While the details have yet to fully emerge, we are all praying for his recovery while in the line of duty. He is a true hero for protecting the public. God bless him. So many questions linger, but the primary suspect, Edgar James Egbert, is not saying anything, or at least hasn’t in his court appearances while being denied bond. He is probably wise to remain silent.

I know Edgar. I was his divorce attorney in 2017-2018. While I am not his biggest fan, he deserves a fair hearing despite his alleged actions. Edgar is the father of five precious kids. He is now remarried. His new wife was incredibly excited when he popped the question. That was barely a year ago. His life has been complex, especially after a divorce that had no easy end in sight. They rarely do.

One of my first experiences with Edgar occurred shortly before Christmas 2017 at the Madison Chancery Court. Judge Cynthia Brewer held a temporary hearing (which I often refer to as a “stop-gap” measure) and nothing particularly unusual transpired. Visitation was addressed, some custody and child support was ordered as well. Edgar’s eldest child was about 13 at that time. He had moved to Georgia with his mom and four siblings a few months prior. My initial read on Edgar was actually quite positive. I felt strongly that he had a soft heart.

After the hearing, Edgar went to his black Jeep, the one involved in the chase last week, and retrieved several presents for his kids. He approached his son, who is a tall, handsome, quiet young man, and, smiling, handed him several gifts for he and his four sisters. Edgar was calm. He seemed very caring, and I nearly teared up because I could feel the pain he was in at that moment. He had not seen his kids in months. I appreciated his gesture. His eldest son said nothing. It was not clear to me whether this was an alienated child or one rightfully bitter at his dad. What I witnessed later made me form a fairly clear opinion.

At trial several months later, details began to emerge. I represented Edgar because I truly did, and do still believe that he missed and loved his babies. My heart went out to him. The tragic events of September, 2019 seem to have appeared out of nowhere. Although I could see his frustrations were mounting as a displaced dad, I did not see a cop-shooter in the making. He did, and still does love those children. I am sure of it. Even though, if found guilty, there is no excuse on earth for his behavior, I wonder to myself if it all could have been prevented. There are no easy answers.

I recently saw that, since my representation of Edgar, he has fallen far behind on child support payments. His ex-wife, dejected and appearing beaten down during trial, does not work. She home schools the children. She is reliant upon the good-will of others and her church to survive. So are the kids. Edgar was ordered to pay about $1,100. per month in support. That’s about $220 per child. Any of you reading this can do the math. Fifty bucks a week doesn’t get a child far. And that amount was not being paid. Attorney’s fees have since mounted for he and his ex-wife. This event has altered too many innocent lives. He was likely facing incarceration for the contempt that was imminent. There was really no path short of winning the lottery to solve his money problems, they grew exponentially and no end was in sight. It is hard to ignore the financial roots that grew into this nightmare.

This is a tragedy for too many reasons. I know Brad Sullivan, if only vaguely. We must never forget that he likely will never be quite the same, but we can pray and hope for he and his family. A headshot from any firearm (.223 Remington is more powerful than almost all handgun rounds) is incredibly horrific. It is amazing he is alive. He is one tough cop.

Edgar’s wife and kids are also victims. They will likely never have the present love of dad again. He may very well still love them, but it is tough to see that love being easily reciprocated. Edgar may also be a victim of his own missteps. While I want it clear that he deserves the presumption of innocence, the benefit of the doubt, the facts do not bear well for him at this point in my estimation.

While I cannot share every detail, I will say that the testimony regarding Edgar’s violent tendencies and drug abuse, marijuana in particular, has left me on one side of the legalization debate. I also have formed a better understanding of the emotional turmoil a divorce can cause. A parent moving far, far away to escape an unhappy marriage is equivalent to a domestic nuclear explosion. The emotions are difficult to handle. The pain is palpable, even to the attorneys.

In the end, I can only ask that you pray not only for Brad, but for the children and family of Edgar Egbert and even Edgar himself. It is a shame that this has happened and we cannot turn back time. Hopefully we can all learn something about the value of our personal relationships. When all the dust clears, hopefully we will love the ones we are with, even if just a little bit more.

"If it's a fully automatic, this would be extremely, extremely, extremely rare," said Rich Marianos, the former assistant director of the ATF’s office of public and governmental affairs and a 27-year veteran of the department.

"This would also be a big deal for law enforcement in that they got a weapon of war off the streets ... A weapon like that can become a mass shooting in a second," Marianos said.

Robert Haar, resident agent in charge of the Jackson ATF field office, wouldn't confirm or deny whether fully automatic weapons had been recovered. But he agreed the use and recovery of a fully automatic would be "very unusual."

Yeah, I saw it reported last week. I just didn't realize it had been that extensive, with that many vehicles shot up. They have been holding blood drives and fundraisers for the deputy since it happened.

The Sheriff was on with JT Tuesday I believe it was. He was directly behind the guy when he hit the strips. Apparently this guy was well known by them. I believe the sheriff said the guy was ex military and a NRA instructor.
When the guy hit the spike strips and went into the ditch, he was using the vehicle as cover very effectively. Shot the patrol cars to pieces he said.

It all started over hostage/kidnapping call.

I'am sure that is true. But things in this story aren't adding up. The Good book does say, we will be deceived many,many times.
As the man in the movie said: "The data do not support any conclusions at the present time." :)

This guy is trying to promote his law practice and in my opinion in a very questionable manner.
