The Mobile NBC affiliate – WPMI 15- has started running promo pieces for the Monday Dateline NBC show that will focus on the Billings murders (see). Dateline has an exclusive interview with Cab Tice. In the clip shown, Tice is choked up, nearly sheds a tear, when he talks about Bud and Melanie Billings.
Henry “Cab” Tice was arrested Thursday night for grand theft. The charge stems from his business dealings with Byrd Billings’ business Worldco Financial Services. Tice told ECSO about his connections with the Mexican mafia and how he had borrowed $50K from them. Tice is free on a $5K bond.
In a Newsweek article on the double homicide, an unnamed source said, “What’s certain is that Tice hates [Byrd] Billings with a passion.” What I have reported is that Cab Tice has been the prime target in an investigation to whether the murders of Byrd and Melanie Billings were a contract hit. People questioned by investigators have told them that Tice was involved.
In the NBC 15 clip, Tice says “That anybody would say that I had anything to do with the murder of Bud or Melanie is a liar.”
The Dateline show runs 9 p.m. – Monday, August 10. It should be a humdinger.
