OZARK, Ala. (WDHN) — Silence and no comments were what was received in attempts to speak with people connected to Coley Lewis McCraney’s background.
McCraney lived on Lisenby Drive in the summer of 1999, just a mile away from where the murder of J.B Beasley and Tracie Hawlett happened.
The street no longer exists, and residents on the current drive said they didn’t know who McCraney was.
WDHN looked into the ministries McCraney was involved in, and records show he had a ministry in Dothan called Spirit and Truth Lifeline.
The address listed had different residents who said they didn’t know of a ministry at the home.
McCraney was also listed as a co-founder for a ministry in Ozark called Heart of Goal, according to other reports.
Co-founder of Heart of Goal James Fuller told me that McCraney was involved with a few of the organization’s projects in the past.
Fuller declined to comment at this time and wanted the legal process to take its course.
