Police Make Arrests In Stolen Hank Williams Notebook Case

Tennessee police have arrested two men in connection with the theft of a notebook which once belonged to country music legend HANK WILLIAMS. Memorabilia collector STEPHEN M SHUTTS, who co-owns the Honky Tonk Hall of Fame and Rock + Roll Roadshow with THE MAVERICKS star ROBERT REYNOLDS, and FRANCINE BOYKIN have been released on bail. Shutts told the authorities he bought the notebook at a garage sale and later sold it, while Boykin, a former custodian at Sony/ATV Music Publishing maintains she found the book of lyrics in a trash can. Both turned themselves in to police on Monday (30OCT06). Sony/ATV bosses, who insist the book belongs to them, claim it was stolen from their offices in Nashville. The notebook contains lyrics to several unpublished Williams songs and has an estimated value of $250,000 (GBP138,900).
