Dougherty County-- Versions about just what happened the night B. C. Takach died still differ.
Police say when they arrived at Takach's home on Old Pretoria Road, they were responding to a domestic violence disturbance. The official incident report lists Takach's wife, Cindy, as both the complainant and the victim.
Police say Cindy Takach told them her husband wouldn't let her leave. She says that's not true. "I am disputing their story. What they are saying about me and my husband hurts. He had not threatened me. I did not need to leave."
911 records show the only call made to 911 came from B. C. Takach. He requested to be connected to the Betty Ford alcohol treatment Center.
Mrs. Takach says her husband never asked for police to come to their home, and they were surprised when the officers showed up. Three officers followed her inside the house and two of them ended up shooting and killing Mr. Takach. Police say B. C. Takach had a pistol cocked and pointed at them. Mrs. Takach says he was just holding it by his side. The retired Sears salesman was laid to rest today.
