I was just a kid when this happened, but wasn't there some kind of muder in Bellefontaine in the 80's or 90's that involved an ex-playboy bunny, or ex-miss america or something like that?
I tried googling it, but I can't find anything.
Maybe I am just crazy!

Yes there was. Would have been in the early to mid 90s. She used to own the Canby building but do not recall the name

Oh she was a playmate of the month> that much I do remember. I think that the shooter died in the city lot across from the post office?

I think it was in 1990. Her name was Stacey ?. I can't remember the last name but she was Mrs. Ohio. It was a deranged fan who shot and killed her husband and I think killed himself.

This is the best I can remember about how it started. Stacey and her boyfriend were in Cactus Jacks and an altercation started in there. Facts: He shot her boyfriend outside of Cactus Jacks and then shot himself in the head in the lot behind Canby and Center city mall building. The fire dept. had to come down and wash the parking lot down. The shooter actually rolled under Jeff Brannon's white Blazer (vehicle) after he shot himself in the head. I am pretty sure it was 1992.

It actually happened during the morning hours (around 11:00 ish). Stacy and her husband were in their store on Chillicothe St (across from Cactus) when the fan showed up.

Right - I was at Jacksons Newstand that morning and her husband was shot right out in the middle of the street on Chillecothe. The shooter ran South down the alley behind the 151 Club where he shot himself in the head. I remember seeing the man laying dead in the street. The deranged STALKER had followed Stacey all the way from California.
I believe I was 19 years old, so it would have been 1990 then...1991 at the most.

just do a search on youtube....it was in October of '91 and it was Stacey's husband James that was shot by her fan. The Arthur's owned an exercise/tanning salon on the 2nd floor of the Canby building. Stacey had been Mrs Ohio and then was Playmate of the year January of 1991

Geez gets the prize! Yes it was in 91. Yes her name was Stacy Arthur, and her husband James was gunned down in the middle of the street on W. Chillicothe. My father sat at the intersection of Main and Chillicothe heading east, with my young daughter who was in kindergarten at the time, sitting in the back seat, as this occurred.
Amazingly, the only think she remembered about the whole incident was grandpa, lighting a cigarette and telling her not to tell grandma or me.

Thank you Redunancy. I'm not a "I think it was this way" poster. My facts are very correct because I was living in Bellefontaine at the time and had just recently married. We lived right down Chillicothe to the east and I happened to be walking up to the Examiner office to get a newspaper right after it all happened. I also belonged to the gym/tanning salon they owned. It was quite the story for that little town.

It appears to me that many of us had the facts correct. I was on Main Street when it occurred - so you weren't the only one around. Forgive us for going on our memories...

Well i will have to agree with officers post , the shooter finally shot himself in the head behind the canby building in the city lot. Then ended up under the white blazer.

Just watched this video and as far as the murder goes it has already been on another thread a few months back. But I didnt know that about the chief of police. I was not living here at the time this took place but wonder how he is still our police chief.
