MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The man accused of poisoning the famed Oak trees at Auburn University is living in a car and bathing himself in a creek, his friend told the Montgomery Advertiser.
Wayne Barnes said he would not disclose the location of his friend, Harvey Updyke, who has been charged with first-degree criminal mischief after the trees were poisoned. Authorities say Updyke is free on bond.
The two century-old oak trees at Toomer's Corner have been the scene for Auburn celebrations for decades.
Authorities accused Updyke of dumping a powerful herbicide into the soil around the two live oaks.
Meanwhile, Auburn has started removing the poisoned soil surrounding the trees.
