A man considered “a person of interest” was arrested last week in the shooting deaths of Cromberg husband and wife Mike and Olga Kroencke.

On Tuesday, Jan. 6, 44-year-old GD Hendrix was apprehended at a store a few miles from where the Kroenckes were found shot to death in their car Dec. 20.

Hendrix lived a couple hundred yards away from the Kroenckes’ second home in the Berry Creek area.

A family member of the Kroenckes, who didn’t want to be identified, said Olga Kroencke had confronted Hendrix about giving methamphetamine to her mentally disabled son.

“Does this make you nervous? This amount of money?” Supervisor Terry Swofford asked Hagwood. Add a comment

Ginny Eck’s schedule is full, she spends most of her life on the road, she rarely gets a full night of sleep and there’s nothing she would rather be doing. She’s attained her dream — to make it in the music world.

Growing up in Quincy, Eck joined a dance team at the age of 6. After several classes, it became apparent to her and her parents that she wasn’t a natural dancer.

Still wanting to encourage Eck’s creative abilities, her parents asked her if she wanted to learn an instrument instead. Eck agreed, and began practicing violin with Johny McDonald. Thus began Eck’s interest in music, which eventually inspired her to play professionally.
