The victim of yesterday’s Calhoun County kidnapping “could have been anyone,” according to Sheriff Matthew Wade. Instead, it was a woman known to most area law enforcement and emergency workers for almost three decades as a steady, steadying presence at crime scenes and accident sites. “She’s a super, super woman,” said Calhoun County Coroner Pat Brown about Betty Cobb, 75, who was found Monday, bound with duct tape in the closet of an Anniston home hours after she was snatched from her home on Choccolocco Road in rural Calhoun County. Wade said investigators believe Cobb was followed home, after an Independence Day shopping trip, by 47-year-old Tony Lamar White of Anniston, who is currently the subject of an intense manhunt. White, who has had previous arrests for domestic violence and third-degree robbery, faces charges of kidnapping and burglary.
