That one word ended a 16-year-old mystery of who killed and dismembered Peggy Casey, a 37-year-old mother of four from Covington.

Her family clapped from the gallery of a Boone County circuit courtroom Thursday as Special Judge David Melcher rendered his verdict in the bench trial of Raymond Clutter.
"It has been a long time, and it has been hard at time," said Casey's sister, Tense Wilson, "but I thank the Lord that justice has prevailed today."
She said it meant everything to the family that Casey's disappearance on Easter weekend 1994 was not forgotten.
Melcher spent 22 days reviewing the evidence presented during the trial before rendering his verdict. He also found Clutter guilty of tampering with physical evidence but not guilty of rape.
The 62-year-old Clutter, who is currently serving a 20-year sentence for sodomizing the daughter of his ex-girlfriend, faces an additional 20-to-50-year or life sentence when Melcher sentences him Aug. 20.
Clutter, wearing khakis, an open-collar shirt and sports jacket, showed no emption - a characteristic he showed throughout the trial. The former strip club owner was a reported millionaire who once kept an alligator and tiger as pets at his sprawling brick ranch on U.S. 42 in Warsaw.
A break in the case came in 2000 when Clutter tried to cut a deal to shorten a 10-year federal sentence for trying to hire someone to kill his ex-girlfriend and for evading taxes. Clutter told authorities his friend Paul "Tony" White killed Casey.
When White was interviewed by Boone County Sheriff's Detective Todd Kenner, who has since retired, he admitted to helping dismember Casey's body and dumping the parts in the Ohio counties of Miami, Clark and Champaign.
But he said it was Clutter who slit Casey's throat with a Ginsu knife to cover up the fact that he raped her.
"This verdict just absolutely made my day," Kenner said. "Hopefully, this gives the family the closure they need to move on. This has just been horrible. Sixteen years waiting - and now it's finally done. We got the bad man behind bars."
With no physical evidence that Clutter killed Casey, the prosecutor's case hinged on White's credibility on the stand. He testified despite having no plea agreement in exchange for his testimony.
White still faces charges of rape, tampering with physical evidence and abuse of a corpse..
The trial was punctuated with graphic details of the killing. A serial strangler, now serving a life sentence in Ohio, was even called to the stand to refute a defense claim that he killed Casey.
Clutter's attorney, Jason Gilbert, accused Boone Commonwealth’s Attorney Linda Tally Smith at trial of trying to bring rumor and innuendo about Clutter's sordid life into evidence to influence the judge.
Others called to testify were Clutter's ex-lover, bar regulars and employees of strip clubs.
"This is the stuff that nightmares are made of and stuff horror movies are made of," Smith said of the facts of the case. "People don't realize that this stuff happens on a regular basis."
Smith said Clutter's son Floyd also participated in disposing of the body. The son was killed 11 years ago in Indiana before authorities gathered enough evidence to charge him.
Smith implied at trial Clutter may have arraigned the killing of his own son.

No...Bobby "acciedentally" shot his own cousin right in the face and got away with it. His cousin was Clutter's son Floyd...the same one that helped him dismember that poor lady.

ok guys...listen this is a family member of Raymond clutter and first and foremost if Raymond killed peggie then something should be done for taking a persons life..but that's why I am not a judge..only a few ppl kno what happened that nite and the truth may never be told..but to those who say ray had his son floyd killed u guys really don't kno Anuthing..ray loved his son very much and would never do that..and I wish ppl would shut the hell up and let it be..he will never be a free man and if he done that he doesn't desreve to ever see daylight again but he is not responsible for the death of his son..would he have begged to cpme to his funeral in shakles and chains..I doubt it..so plz ppl go up and get a life...

i didn't say he had someone to kill his own son, that is what the attroney Linda Tilly Smith said in the last statement of the article from the first posting....And they did fined him guilty of the murder of Peggy Casey. You can look it up and read all about it just google it ( raymond clutter trail ) and see for yourself. Do I believe he could have his own son killed? Yup i sure do..... Just my opinion!

Its all starting to make a whole lot of sense to me, what you put on here is the truth. I googled it.All the trails keep leading back to certain people. Think about this, the last three or four days of a missing persons life pretty much leads to what happen to them. What was going on and what was Paul Gruape talking about when he disappeared??? Come on it does'nt take a rocket scientist to figure it out. The law knows and so does everyone else, these murderers have had alot of experience and have done their homework well or so they think ,your info helps all of us see what kind of monsters were dealing with and the past will always catch up with you sooner or later. All of Paul's friends can't wait to see justice served to all those involved in harming our dear beloved friend. We will never stop thinking about him or about how loving and compassionate he was to everyone. He'll always be in ours hearts. The reward is growing bigger and the fat lady's bound to start singing soon.
