ELIZABETHTOWN – When it comes to running a jail, Joseph Marshall Heady Jr. said he “learned from the best.”
Joe Marshall “Mutt” Heady Sr., who died 15 years ago, served seven terms as Hardin County jailer spanning the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s.
Now his son hopes to run the jail.
Heady Jr. filed as a Democratic candidate for the post, making him the seventh person seeking to fill the shoes of veteran Jailer Louis Lawson.
