Good Samaritan in Missouri Murdered Saving Female Under Attack

HANNIBAL, Mo. — "A Missouri man is dead after reportedly trying to stop two men from attacking a female.

Instead, the attackers apparently turned their attention to the victim, 45-year-old Rodney Wood, leaving him fatally injured. Both suspects, ages 21 and 22, were arrested Sunday.

Wood's body was found early Sunday in the northeast town of Hannibal.

Police are saying little about the incident. But a family friend told the Hannibal Courier-Post that Wood was riding his motorbike when he saw a female being attacked. Her age was not known.

Friends said Wood stopped to intervene and the men began attacking him."

Should have tried running them down, Rodney. I know you tried and gave your all so we'll leave it at that.
