Default Boat death solved 8 1/2 yrs later

Dude in boat runs over kids fishing at night and kills one of them, doesn't stop, then buries his boat on his property 8 1/2 years ago. Tip leads to burried boat.

Guy should have stopped, not to point fingers, but why didn't he, how does someone live with that for 8 years.
Sad story, glad the family is getting closure.

Might be hard to prove it 8 yrs later after the boat is in pieces and has been burried, presumably, for that long.

If I'm not mistaken there is a country song written and performed by James Mc Murty called the governer written about this incident. Pretty chilling song.

He should have stopped, that being said he probably had a few beers and even if the kids had been in the middle of lake middle of night with no lights knew that speedboat+couple beers+accident=getting screwed hard even though it probably was not his fault .

They have been "questioning" him for many days now,thats how they found the boat, he probably confessed already.

Article said, "A tipster told game wardens that Marburger buried his speedboat somewhere on his Bertram property."

Doesn't seem like a confession yet, but hopefully they are able to put all the peices together.

Does the Governer know who killed the fishermen
On the lake last night?
Was the cigarette boat comin' 'round the point like a bat out of hell
Wasn't burnin' his lights?

The cigarette boat is not even legal
The lake's too narrow to be goin' that fast
Two fishermen sat in an old green Jon boat
Makin' one more cast

Full moon rising big and pale
That cigarette boat didn't even slow down
It was throwin' up a big old rooster tail
And it ran right through 'em with a sickening sound

Does the Governor know who killed the fishermen?
Does the Governor know who killed the fishermen?

The game warden's here and the EMS
They hauled up the body with a rope and a hook
They got no leads and no suspects
State trooper says they're not even gonna look

Does the Governor know who killed the fishermen?
Had to have been some fat cat
Them cigarette boats, they cost many
Can't just anybody buy a boat like that

Does the Governor know who killed the fishermen?

They can't find the boat, they can't find the trailer
They were watchin' the ramps, big mistake
I'll bet you the farm it's in somebodies' boathouse
It never made the ramp and it's still on the lake

They try to get a warrant...dream all you want
they won't be searchin' any lake front homes
Justice is blind to them that own it
Money don't talk when it's one of their own
Money don't talk when it's one of their own
Money don't talk when it's one of their own

Does the Governor know who killed the fishermen?

Watch the Houston News video, Game Warden states they have been talking with suspect for several days prior to and after his arrest. Boat was not found until after his arrest.
That leads me to believe he confessed once confronted.
