Parkway Slaying Suspect Cites Use of Enhancement Drugs

April 30, 2010

A court filing says a man accused of shooting two people on the Blue Ridge Parkway told police his mind may have been impaired by male enhancement drugs.

According to a search warrant affidavit, 56-year-old Ralph Leon Jackson of Stuarts Draft told an Augusta County investigator he'd been taking male enhancement substances that might be making his mind "fuzzy" or "foggy."

A Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agent filed the affidavit Thursday in federal court in Harrisonburg.

Jackson is being held at the Middle River Regional Jail on state charges of murder and attempted murder. He's accused of shooting 27-year-old Tim Davis and 18-year-old Christina Floyd on April 5.

Davis later died but Floyd survived.
