If we are looking at JD Hayworth then we ought to be looking at Sean and Linn Sue Cooney. C.E. "Pep" Cooney owned the news in Arizona, Linn was his daughter in law. She was an anchorwoman for many years, she is Chinese. JD Hayworth was a sports anchor. Sean Cooney got drunk and killed a guy on his boat at lake Pleasant and then did 30 days in jail. The Cooney's are LDS. I'm going to try to find out about her parents.
