Wayne supposedly killed himself in a cemetery near his home. Rumor (just personal knowledge) is that he was going to be connected to other killings.

Born and raised in Owsley County, Moved to Richmond in 1989, right after Davidson murders. What about Mark Hacker being killed in his own home in front of a dozen people, Carl Gabbard stayed in jail till the funeral was over, that was it. Bill Oliver, after years of drinkin' and puttin' his wife through hell, shot her in the head with a .44 magnum, while she was takin' him to a bootlegger for more beer.I don't think he pulled a day over it. I went to school with Ricky Gipson, who "supposedly" jumped off the low-water bridge at fishtrap and broke his neck, Bullshit. Yeah, if you're lookin' to get the "Deep six" you need not leave the lovely confines of Owsley County, Kentucky.

Lord knows I wasnt bragging I was only saying he did his time for what he did! From what I understand the reason it all took place cause the man he killed was beating his wife and kids and had molested his kids! Still I dont think he should have taken the law into his own hands!

unsolved murders happen's scary to think you can trust someone for years and then for no reason they can walk in and just kill you.and get away with it because everyone knows they were your friend.

That was Glenn Rogers and he was hiding out in Beattyville with two of his aunts. They found one body there, a man from Ohio that he had done some work for and stayed with. There is a book about it. I have the book, "Smooth Operator". you should check it out.

- Murder of Danny McDaniel on 9/19/2002 in Owsley County, KY

-Brenda Sue Davidson 11/06/1988 in Owsley County, KY
-Michael Dale Davidson 11/06/1988 in Owsley County, KY
I would love to see all these cold cases solved. I know the Kentucky State Police is doing everything within their power to solve these cases. The case of Brenda and Michael Davidson is personal to me and I can't wait til the day when the killers are punished...some of them may be dead, some of them may still be roaming around in Booneville. I'm sure there's a lot of talk and I'm sure a lot of people know more than they want to say because people don't like getting involved in stuff. They can remain anonymous though. Please if anyone reading this has heard anything contact the KSP, you don't even have to give your name, you can call from a pay phone or anything. It would get it off your chest ya know. I know if I knew something like that I'd rather tell someone than to keep it hid for years and have to sleep at night with that on my mind. Some people may call me crazy, maybe a little obsessed, but I go to sleep EVERY night with this case on my mind and have for a long long time. Someone done this, someone pulled that trigger, someone knows something. Thanks to everyone who took the time to read this. Please visit

"In a 1991 interview with a reporter from the Columbus Dispatch, Harvey gave a rare glimpse into his mindset:

Why did you kill?

Well, people controlled me for 18 years, and then I controlled my own destiny. I controlled other peoples lives, whether they lived or died. I had that power to control.

What right did you have to decide that?

After I didnt get caught for the first 15, I thought it was my right. I appointed myself judge, prosecutor and jury. So I played God.

On July 23, 2001, the Associated Press printed an article listing the worst serial killers in the United States. Donald Harvey was rated number one, followed by John Wayne Gacy, Patrick Kearney, Bruce Davis and Dean Corll.

Donald Harveys first scheduled parole hearing is set for 2047. He will be 95."

She does live in Beattyville. Her name is Glenda "Jessy" Ray and she helped the toy box killer with some of his evil doings. She was convicted but got probation. She works with creative concrete in Beattyville. Her mother is Glenda Blood.
David Parker Ray (November 6, 1939 - May 28, 2002) was a suspected American serial killer and known torturer of women; though no bodies were found, he was accused by his accomplices of killing several people, and suspected by police to have murdered as many as 60 people in the town of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. He is occasionally known as the "Toy-Box Killer".[1]

[edit] CrimesDavid Parker Ray tortured and presumably killed his victims in a $100,000 homemade torture chamber he called his "toy box",[2] which was equipped with what he referred to as his "friends": whips, chains, pulleys, straps, clamps, leg spreader bars, and surgical blades and saws.[2] With these tools its thought that he terrorized Truth or Consequences for several years with the added assistance of multiple accomplices.
Inside the torture room, along with numerous sex toys, torture implements, syringes and detailed diagrams (made by Ray himself) showing different methods and techniques for inflicting pain, there was a homemade electricity generating device that was used in torture.[3] Ray would often have a recorded audio tape of himself be played for his victims whenever they regained consciousness.[4]
[edit] Trial and convictionOn March 22, 1999, a living victim, Cynthia Vigil,[5] escaped after being kidnapped and enduring torture in a three-day ordeal. To escape, Vigil waited until Ray went to work and then managed to get the keys to the lock of her chains which Ray's ACCPMPLICE CINDY HENDY left on a table nearby while answering a phone call. After getting the keys Hendy noticed Vigil's attempt at escaping and fighting ensued. During the struggle, Hendy broke a lamp on Vigil's head, but she still managed to unlock her chains and then proceeded to stab Hendy in the neck with an icepick she found on the floor and escaped. Vigil ran away naked, wearing only an iron slave collar and padlocked chains. After Vigil's escape and rescue, Ray and Hendy were apprehended by the police.
Ray was sentenced to more than 223 years in prison after being convicted of numerous offenses involving the abduction and sexual torture of three young women at his Elephant Butte Lake home.[6] His first trial ended in a hung jury in Tierra Amarilla, New Mexico. His trial was then relocated to a small town where he had been raised decades before. He was convicted of his crimes against Angie Montaņo, and then admitted his crimes against Cynthia Vigil Jaramillo and another young woman, as part of a plea deal for a light sentence for Ray's daughter. He died eight months after sentencing, having been held for two and a half years while awaiting trial and re-trial.[7] Hendy, who testified against Ray, received a sentence of 36 years for her role in the crimes.
