  • Family keeps Ta'Bug's memory alive

    Pamela Dunlap Mungo marked her son’s birthday for the 17 years he was alive. There was never any question in her mind that she’d mark the birthday after he was gone.

    Mungo lost her son, Tavish Dunlap, on Aug. 27, 2007, when he was shot to death in the Petersburg neighborhood.

    Damien Rivers, 21, of Pageland, was sentenced to 19 years in prison for the death after a trial on Aug. 30. “That shot wasn’t meant for him,” Rivers said to Dunlap’s family in the courtroom. “I didn’t intentionally kill your son.”
