Except for the fact they have the wrong timothy billings on here.. Wellsville daily reporter had to post a correction. It was not timothy d billings 22 it was timothy j billings 27 . I feel bad for the other Tim that has his name slandered incorrectly all over the different papers and online sites police should make sure the give the correct information before the send this stuff out to the papers ..
