  • Shelby County General Sessions Court Judge Bill Anderson released alleged Thanksgiving Day murderer Edio White with zero bond on Monday, even after police said White admitted to driving the getaway car after the fatal shooting of a 15-year-old, and against the recommendation of Shelby County District Attorney Steve Mulroy.
  • “Records show both White’s attorney and the District Attorney’s office recommended a $75,000 bond. Instead, Judge Bill Anderson recommended White’s release on his own recognizance,” Fox 13 Memphis reported.
  • Anderson (pictured above) released White, 18, with zero bond within 72 hours of his arrest for the first-degree murder of 15-year-old Anthony Mason, on Monday.
