Yesterday, Nelson County investigated the discovery of a body, burnt beyond recognition, inside a car in Afton. It is thought to be the remains of 38-year-old Charlottesvillian Clemente Macedo, who was sleeping in his car while staying with extended family. The Progress article presents no evidence as to why Macedo’s death should be considered murder, but it is classified as such by the police. In unrelated news, a 57-year-old woman, Betty Gowen of Crabtree Falls, was arrested yesterday and charged with the murder of her husband, 63-year-old Jack Gowen of Shipman. The Nelson County Sheriff’s office reports that there was a history of domestic altercations between the two. Austin Graham and Reed Williams cover these two stories in today’s Progress.
