Penn Cage, the mayor of Natchez, Mississippi. Dad’s being held in protective custody in Louisiana by the FBI. He wasn’t allowed to cross into Mississippi to attend Caitlin’s funeral
Penn Cage, the mayor of Natchez, Mississippi. When they avoid me-waving from a distance, if at all, then hurrying on their way-I sometimes wonder if I have taken on the mantle of death. Jewel Washington, the county coroner and a true friend, pulled me aside in City Hall last week and told me I look like living proof that ghosts exist. He wasn’t allowed to cross into Mississippi to attend Caitlin’s funeral. I’m told he beat his arthritic hands against the bars of his cell when he got word that Sheriff Billy Byrd would jail him in Natchez if he crossed the river-beat them until he broke some bones in his right wrist.
