Anyone remember the name of the man/men who picked up a gay man and beat him to death in the back of their car with a crowbar that happened around the area? It was a good time ago, 70s or 80s.

Yea good luck trying to find anything on that one I've tried this came to my mind about four years ago the victim if I remember right was (Halsey,or Hualsey)this took place around 1979 to 1982.
There were 4 people involved if I remember this all correctly maybe 3 from what I can remember they finished him off behind the grade school in Attica at the football field and track and I guess that's where they found the body,I don't know if any of the guys who did the killing were given any chance for parole?
And I can't remember if they were seniors in high school or had graduated when this happened but I know it was a shock to the community I don't usually have as hard of a time finding information but there's just nothing I could find on this case.
But if I remember right the guys who did the killing were known to have been on the football and basketball teams so they were well known and I think that's what shocked a lot of people at the time.

After some research I finally got the year date and all that were involved the victim was Donald Hulsey he was found dead in Williamsport or somewhere in a filed near by Williamsport the murder took place in the early hours of June 3rd,1979 a hollow table leg filled with gravel was used to beat him to death with.
There was not an arrest made in the case until 1985 after Jon Wood confessed to being involved or present and was dropped off at Layton's star market in Williamsport Indiana,he said that he doubted that Hulsey was alive at that point Jeff House was reportedly the one who did the killing the were 4 people involved as I suspected in my first reply Jeff Hose Jeff Wilson Jon Wood and Scott Talbott.
This explains why I never could get any information I thought Hulsey's body was found behind the Attica grade school where the football field is or at least was when I loved there from what I gather there was a party at Scott Wilson's house that night and all of them ran to get more beer a decided they wanted to beat up a homosexual that night.
House has tried at least 2 times to appeal his case failing both times he was sentenced to 69 years,and I'm not sure about the others.

I know the folks who still have the car that it happened in on their land. Wonder why the police never took it. Some gnarly tears in the upholstery from it so I've heard.

THANK YOU
Your welcome I'm glad I'm not the only one who remembered this though its not a good thing by any means.
I remember seeing Donald leaving in the mornings heading off to what I assume was high school I only lived about three blocks from where his family resided in Attica,and would see him as I walked to the grade school he would wave or say hello if I was looking in his direction I don't know if he was actually a homosexual or not but either way that would not justify his death.
If I'm not mistaken he was also employed at the Big Daddy's restaurant I would have never have found out what I found out but ran into a couple people who are residence of Attica who remembered the situation and one or more of the families who's sons were involved spent big money to have this go away during the trials.

Yea as I understand it Hulsey's skull was in pretty grizzly condition when they found him the next day the reason why they likely never took the car was (and I'm assuming this) Jeff House likely had the car hid out,the very next day he had the girl he was seeing at the time drive him right by where he,or they dumped the body.
I would say if those people have that car on their property still if they checked the trunk they would likely find blood stains there because my understanding is they placed him in the trunk after he was killed.
The police were on to House not more that 4 weeks after they found the body as the girl who drove him by the field where the body was dumped called Hulsey's family anonymously and told Donald Hulsey's brother that House had confided in her that he had killed Hulsey then he tried to recant his story and told her he was kidding the problem is he'd said and done this with more than one person.
And I guess most people who were working with House at C&D battery knew it to or strongly suspected he was guilty.
At any rate I would tell those folks who have the car to check the trunk if they haven't already.

I guess what is strange for me House was arrested and convicted two years before I graduated high school in Attica and I do not even remember hearing a whole lot about it or at least I don't remember hearing a lot about the trial.
I did make a few type O's here and I mistakenly typed out that he had received 69 years it was actually 60 years.
And I think they intend for House to serve all 60 years from my I've read.

Thanks for the info I was sort of wandering do you have any idea if he was the only one who was convicted?
As from what I had assumed I kind of got the idea the others who were in the car that night might have turned states evidence?
And was he from or Williamsport originally?
I was only 16 when he was finally arrested and charged.
