Spenser Brooks

Spenser Fitzgerald Brooks was born to Fitzgerald and Margery Brooks on April 12, 1979, in Oxford, Mississippi. Fitzgerald was an investment banker and kept long hours at work, so Margery handled the bulk of the household management and the raising of Spenser and his younger brother, Byron.

Fitzgerald provided well for his family but was away from home a lot. He taught his sons that you had to work hard to obtain the things you wanted in life.

Spenser took his father's lessons seriously and started to plan his future at an early age. He wanted to be a lawyer. Spencer was an excellent student in both his elementary and high school years. He didn't make friends easily, but he didn't seem to mind because he was focused on his studies. He knew what he wanted for his future, and he was determined that no one and nothing would keep him from his goal.

He graduated from high school in 1997 with a 4.0-grade point average. He was accepted to the University of Mississippi, where he would later earn a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice.

Spenser met his future wife, Virginia, during his college years. They were married in 2000. In 2002, Virginia gave birth to a son they named Wesley. Currently a student at Ole Miss, Wesley aspires to follow in his grandfather's footsteps as an investment banker.

After graduation, he took the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) and was accepted into the University of Mississippi School Of Law. Through much hard work and dedication, he graduated with honors.

During law school, he worked as a paralegal in a criminal lawyer's office and enjoyed watching court cases. After graduation, with his new law degree in hand, he applied to a firm specializing in criminal law and was hired on the spot.

Spenser worked several years at the firm, but his heart’s desire was to work as a prosecutor someday. In 2010, he was hired by the Yoknaptawpha County District Attorney as an assistant DA. Although the position didn't pay as much as working for his old law firm, Spenser loved the challenge of putting criminals behind bars and became quite good at it. In 2017, he was elected as the District Attorney of Yoknapatawpha County.

I don't think he cheated on his wife. I think his only true love was his work, so there would be no reason to complicate things. He had a wife who would not question him and an Heir. His drive is what got him killed I would bet.

So what do we know. We know Mr. Brooks was not happy in his Marriage, though he did love his wife and especially his son, felt his wife was cold towards him. His wife and his son both suspected an affair, his wife obviously even knew who. His son...

So what do we know. We know Mr. Brooks was not happy in his Marriage, though he did love his wife and especially his son, felt his wife was cold towards him. His wife and his son both suspected an affair, his wife obviously even knew who. His son admits to going to the park to confront them. He was having an affair with Christy, though she was not with him that day. We know that there was a woman at the office that wanted him gone, because she wanted his position. She could have been the one to have told his wife of suspicions, since it is believed his wife basically got him the position, but other than just being a not very nice person at all, there is nothing else that screams it was her. He had an elected official that thought he was an a**h**** who may have known of the affair, he would also go freely to the same park. So Jill and him may very well have led to his death. He has dirt, lets blackmail him, no he is to smart for that, but what would his wife do? How would they know about cabin 7? they were told or they saw. Not hard.
