HUMBOLDT ? Life in Humboldt is beginning to get back to normal. Customers returning to the H&H Grill Friday morning were a welcome sight to owner Sandy Hurst.
Forty-eight hours after Aaron Hutton turned himself into the Iola Police Department, after a weeklong manhunt centered on the Neosho River by Humboldt, residents were finally able to breathe a sigh of relief.
?Everyone was scared. Nobody would get out and do anything because they were scared. We didn?t have any customers until today. I live way out in the country and I was scared to go out to my car every morning at 5 a.m. because it was dark. Is he in my car? Is he hiding somewhere? You just don?t know what someone like that is capable of doing,? Hurst said.
