Man Identified On Plane That Threatened Tupelo Walmart


We previously reported on a plane that was in danger of colliding with a Walmart in Tupelo (Mississippi).

The plane appears to be on the ground now, and the man is in custody.

The airport employee who was responsible for the flight was the man who took off.

Daily Journal:

Multiple law enforcement agencies, airport authorities, and local authorities identified Cory Patterson of Shannon as the suspect.

Patterson is a Tupelo High School grad in 2011.

Cory Patterson believed to be the suspect, posted Saturday morning on Facebook: “Sorry everybody. Never intended to harm anyone. This is not your fault. Goodbye.”

This sounds more like someone who might be thinking about taking himself out. It’s great that he is now on the ground.
