Today in the Word, September 29, 1995, p. 36.
Vernon Pierce needed a notebook to keep track of the stories he told his four wives and the other women he was dating. But even that wasn't enough. The tangled love life of the 33-year-old ex-model began to unravel last year when one of the four women to whom he was married sent the police to Pierce's home to check up on him. The police found another wife knocking on the door.
There was a lot of lying going on. Police said he was dating other women, keeping track of some of them on a 3-by-5 inch card labeled "Who to Marry." He also carried a little black book in his wallet to keep his stories straight.
