Stabbing at Hogrock Campground’s ‘GATHERING’ of ICP freaks: UPDATEPosted by Chris Beavers on Saturday, August 14th, 2010 @ 10:01 am.
UPDATE: Our sources indicate that the stabbing victim in the below story was treated by Hamilton County ambulance, who were stationed at the campgrounds, and that he was not a local nor a Juggalo. Instead he was reportedly some kind of boss over some of the vendors at the site. The suspect in the case has reportedly been taken to Massac County's jail, not SCDC; but we'll confirm that Monday. It's unclear what his exact charges are.
Below is the original article in its entirety.
HARDIN CO.---Authorities notified Disclosure at 12:36 a.m. that there had been a stabbing at the 'Gathering,' a big party held at campgrounds in lower Hardin County outside of Cave-in-Rock.
According to reports we received directly from a south counties law enforcement officer, Hardin County Sheriff Tom Seiner requested units from Saline County and District 19's Illinois State Police out of Carmi (which covers Hardin County) at 12:41 a.m.
A deputy identified by our source as #933 advised at about that same time that there was a group of Juggalos chanting "F*#k the police!" advancing toward him at the site. Our source, listening on his police radio, said he "sounded stressed."
However, at 12:44, law enforcement officials at the scene did note that they believed the suspect in the stabbing was in custody of the security crew at the campgrounds.
That was the last communication from our source; we'll be looking into the matter as the weekend progresses, and likely have a mug shot and charges for you on Monday.
