A Volvo station wagon parked in the Brashear Cemetery at 11:30 p.m. attracted the attention of Hopkins County deputies Thursday night. There they found Ricky Wayne Lee Liebel, 36, and Danielle Renee Payne, 25, who live on Gilmore Street in Sulphur Springs “having intercourse” according to their report. That is not all they found.
