Our friends at the Daily Mail have uncovered a dirty secret in Alabama: AJ McCarron is related to Dustin Kent, one of the 11 people arrested in the rape, incest and disappearance of a family member. In fact, the alleged criminal is the uncle of the Heisman trophy finalist — the brother of his mother.

Look below for pictures of the two together in addition to other major players in this case. Dustin Kent is also the uncle of Brittany Woods, the missing 19-year-old who was abused by her family in a case that has led to 11 arrests. AJ McCarron’s aunt, Mendy Kent, was also arrested.

The Crimson Tide quarterback from Mobile, Alabama isn’t thought to be close with anyone who the police are investigating. His mother, Dee Dee Bonner, is also in the clear. But, regardless, the most popular person in the state being connected by blood to such a heinous crime is sure to make headlines.

    That is awful!!! That poor girl!!! I feel bad for the football player too. If I read the article correctly she has been missing and there have been lots of arrests of the ring over the last year, right? How did this not come out sooner? Did the football player try to at least help promote her disappearance or advocate for the victims?

    Aj seems to be a pretty good guy. I totally get why people don’t want him mentioned in this horrible story. But my problem with this story has been the lack of it being reported. These charges first came out in the summer of 2012. His cousin Brittney Wood, a young mother, has been missing for a year and a half. I live in the state of alabama and found out about this that same summer and learned that this was aj’s extended family. I have noticed since then how little coverage this story has received. It seems the mobile paper has reported the bare minimum in an attempt to protect aj. I have even noticed comments deleted on articles that were written about kent, if aj was mentioned in the comment. I doubt they would protect anyone else in this way. Football trumps everything, even a young mother who has been missing for eighteen months. I have friends who are hardcore alabama fans, that can tell you every player and every stat, but have no idea about this. They look at me like I am making it up when I ask about it. They honestly have no idea their star quarterback has a missing cousin. Everyone knows who Natalee Holloway is, EVERYONE. Why? Because it was a tragic story and the media reported it. It got the word out and helped develop leads because everyone was concerned and wanted to find her. She could have been one of our daughters. Brittney Wood is no less of a person and has deserved that same urgency that Natalee received. Yet in this state, where football is king, no one knows who she is. Katherine Webb became an overnight celebrity just because of her relationship with aj. If aj told Brittney’s story and asked the public for help, who knows what could have happened. I totally understand wanting to distance yourself from this horrible story but some things are more important. Everyone is right about this not being aj’s fault that part of his family did these things. No one would have blamed him. How could you? But it’s not Brittney’s fault either. So why wouldn’t you try to help? You have the college football world hanging on your every word and nothing is said. EVERYONE knows who dee dee bonner is and EVERYONE knows who katherine webb is and the one person who needs her name out there more than anyone (Brittney) is unknown. During the Penn State scandal, we as a society were disgusted that the safety of innocent children was ignored because it might have disrupted the religion that is Penn State football. Well I pray to God that the silence over the last 18 months is due to the advice from an attorney. Because if everyone that knew kept there mouth shut to keep the alabama crimson tide’s dynasty intact….. then you are as guilty as those who knew in the Penn State case. I feel for aj and truly hate that he is having to go through this. I just wish the media or word of mouth, something, could have gotten Brittney’s name out more. She is the real victim. She and her daughter deserved more and not sure why they didn’t get it.

      I’ve been reading more about this since the article came out and for the life of me I can’t figure out how that Dustin Kent guy was able to bail himself out of jail so many times. He had some really high bail to come up with and from everything I’ve seen it looks like he was unemployed. I read one article where his attorney was quoted and that guy is a private attorney in Baldwin County. I guess he could have been court appointed but somehow I doubt it. So where did he get the money? Who would want to bail him out at all?
