This is the story of what happened to Matt:  Fifteen years ago, Matthew Wagner, then 17, made headlines across the Midsouth after having sustained critical injuries following a bank robbery in Mason, Tennessee
It was Friday, April 24, 1992, and at 2:15 p.m. the Bank of Mason was being robbed by Derrick Taylor, then 26, and David Poindexter, then 18. The two men were wearing black ski masks and wielding guns and ended up with $44,000.
An investigator with the District Attorney General's office was at city hall when the alarm sounded and then went to Bozo's Restaurant parking lot where he saw the men enter their 1984 Chevrolet as they took their ski masks off.
