  • Seems like a reasonable chance this guy is strapped. Take care folks!

  • Pretty sure his family has taken him out of state. If not they are totally protecting him, sadly.

  • You mean Hawaii to his sisters same place his brother ran when that bob the builder guy came up missing ……….hes long gone

    • The alderpoint ski-mask-and-gun club will be disapointed.

    • God all you trolls have nothing better to do! I came to California to try to get Zach to turn himself in (no luck) … and “his brother” came to Hawaii off and on for several years long after bob went missing. Zach is not in Hawaii nor would I consider him living with me and my family under these condition. I would never put us at risk and chance loosing my family or going to jail for aiding and abetting. The rest of our family has not seen Zach in over 10 years, so not likely he will turn to any of them. We are all good people with real jobs and have families to care for and we are all praying for the family if the victim and for Zach to turn himself in. No one really know what happened up there and it’s up to Zach to straiten this out or face up and do the time.

      • It’s pretty sad that your worried about not getting affiliated with your brother.

        When “your” brother just damaged a family! His life was taken away and You show no type of remours for the family that your brother just destroyed? They won’t have him for the holidays for birthdays or any events and all you care about is not tanting your name? It’s incredible how selfish people are.

        My condolences to the family and my prayers are with you!

      • Simply stated, Harrison is a coward. And speaking as the daughter of the victim, “Sister Harrison”, myself nor my family want/need your prayers.
        The fact of the matter is my dad was sitting in his truck (unarmed), when your brother approached his vehicle, pulled out a gun, and shot. He is no longer here to tell his side of the story and your brother is such a cowardly excuse of man, he hasn’t stopped running.
        So for now…we wait patiently. Karma is a bitch.

    • to Trinitysclean…. That Bob the builder guy was Bobby Tennison and his family is still trying to find his remains. If there is anyone that knows what “they” did with him we would very much like to know.

  • Where is Dog the Bounty Hunter when you need them
