There are no Toomer’s Oaks updates.
Yep, the media gag order on persons involved in the Harvey Updyke case apparently extends all the way to the oaks caretakers themselves. No more roller coaster status reports. No more canopy rides. No more “come check out the Toomer’s tomato…”
Auburn University’s official Toomer’s Oaks updates page has even been taken down.
Meanwhile rumors on the oaks condition—and the condition of their possible replacements—continue to circulate.
The gag order is expected to stay in effect throughout Updyke’s trial, which resumes October 1. Should be fun!
