Roswell ramps up security after chicken keeper's deathSubmitted by bytejockey on Wed, 04/25/2012 - 19:52
Anger over the death of Andrew Wordes – a keeper of chickens who apparently killed himself rather than be evicted from his home in March – is reflected this week in ramped-up security at Roswell City Hall.
Starting Wednesday, visitors to the municipal offices and courts no longer can use the front entrance. They must come through a special door and pass through a metal detector. A police officer mans the security post, and video surveillance records all visitors.
