Walter Cornelius III Draws Manslaughter Charge In Stony Lonesome Death

Walter John Cornelius III (29) of Altoona in Etowah County was arrested on Tuesday, March 6th by deputies with the Cullman County Sheriff’s Office.

Cornelius faces charges of manslaughter in connection with the death of Hannah Nicole Bates (21) of Cullman.

Miss Bates sustained fatal injuries in rollover over of RZR off-road-vehicle. Cornelius was the driver of the unit.

Legal documents show that Cornelius was arrested and charged with Public Intoxication soon after the crash occurred. According to Cullman County Parks and Recreation Director Doug Davenport, it appeared that Bates was not wearing seat harnesses or seat belts at the time of the accident.

Cornelius was booked and processed at the Cullman County Detention Center. Making a $20,000 bond, Cornelius was released from jail.

Stony Lonesome OHV Park remained after the mishap until March 1. It has reopened with new restrictions designed to improve safety:

• Safety harnesses and seat belts required
• Parking lot speeds reduced from 10 miles per hour to 5 miles per hour.

The Cullman County Commission owns and operates the Park through the Cullman County Parks and Recreation (CCP&R) department.

Stony Lonesome OHV Park is located along the 10000 block of Alabama Highway 69 South in Bremen.
