News-Leader Saturday, October 19, 2013 3A Campbell Continued from Page 1A TODAY heated dispute between Campbell and the Porters. Less than a month before the Porters disappeared in April 2011, Russell Porter filed for a protection order against Campbell. In those Greene County documents, Russell Porter wrote he and his wife had been harassed and threatened by Campbell. Russell Porter wrote of a specific threat made by Campbell on March 21, 2011: "Robert Campbell drove by our driveway and yelled out his window and told me to watch myself you won't be around much longer." The next day, Campbell filed for a protection order against Russell Porter, claiming it was Russell Porter who was threatening and harassing him. Campbell wrote that he was afraid of Russell Porter because "I am old and got medical health problems." Two weeks after the Porters disappeared, Greene County deputies searched 120 acres of property that surrounded the home including land which Campbell lived on.

The skeletal remains of the Porters were found in remote Taney County in late July 2011. Taney County Coroner Kevin Tweedy said each died of gunshot wounds to the head. Also indicted in the case are Windy Friend; her husband Tony Friend; his son Phillip Friend; and Dusty Hicks. In May, Phillip Friend pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree murder and two counts of felonious restraint for his role the Porters' deaths. Jury trials are scheduled for the other defendants throughout 2014.

Story, Page 1B Greene County deputies found evidence to further link Campbell to the crimes.

Epperly said he knew two firearms were seized, as well as two tractor-trailers. The trailers are believed to have been stolen, which led Barry County authorities to charge Campbell with one count of receiving stolen property. Campbell is now being held in the Barry County jail on a $150,000 bond. Authorities have not yet revealed details of Campbell's alleged involvement in the Porters' deaths.

Eggers and Allison declined interview requests through a Mercy spokesperson. According to a news release from Mercy, the east wing of the hospital is currently undergoing renovations as it converts to a pediatric hospital. Completion of the building exterior is scheduled for later this year. "It's so heartwarming to see members of our community step up to help fund this effort," Mercy President Robert Steele said in a statement. In addition to the gifts of Eggers and Allison, the Mercy Health Auxiliary is also donating $500,000 to Mercy's Family Resource Center, which offers educational programs such as childbirth classes.

For Bobby Allison, the gift is not necessarily so much from him but for him. He says he gets far more from giving than he could ever put in. Allison is donating $650,000 after a $2 million gift last year to the neonatal intensive care unit. Allison gives in honor of his mother. He has given in her name in the past, including sponsoring the Betty Allison Junior Golf Course at Rivercut and Betty and Bobby Allison Miracle Baseball Field.

She never drank, she Bobby Allison Is making a $650,000 donation to Mercy, in honor of his late mother, photo courtesy mercy HOSPITAL SPRINGFIELD never dated, nothing," Allison said.
