From December 2016: Ten years ago, Cory Ray McIllwain was 21 years old and living in Moorhead, Minnesota, when he was arrested for possession of narcotics/controlled substances. Below is his mug shot from that arrest taken from “Busted”:
Since moving to Alabama, McIllwain has lived in Hartselle and Franklin County where both his rap sheet and tattoos have grown. Most of the now 31 year old McIllwain’s arrests have been for possession of drugs, but in 2013 he was charged with theft in Hartselle.
