Emails from Michael Parson to the woman he was believed to be secretly engaged to show Parson said he was unmarried, according to a WSB-TV News report.
The Texas Highway Patrol arrested Michael Parson, in May, following a traffic stop. He fled Georgia as police investigated his wife’s shooting. Adina Parson suffered eight gunshot wounds, three in the head on April 20, outside her apartment at the Residences of Morgan Falls off Roswell Road. After weeks in the hospital she was transferred to the Shepherd Center for rehabilitation.
Court documents obtained by WSB reveal several exchanges between Michael Parson and Rachel Harner, who talked to authorities early on in the investigation. A note from Harner said she was upset to learn of Parson’s marriage from police and seemingly believed Adina was his aunt.
According to the report, Parson wrote in a journal of how he led multiple lives. While in Van Zandt County Jail in Texas, he wrote of regrets for troubles he caused his family and Harner.
Parson remains in Fulton County Jail.
