Going back about 90-100 years ago. Looking for information about a young girl named Tidwell, that supposedly was pregnant by her boyfriend. She was murdered and thrown into a creek. I have been told there was a song written a recorded about it. "What have you done Clarence Cummings?" He did time in prison for this. I'm just researching my ancestry and would like to find out more. Sorry if this offends any family, maybe since so much time has passed, it will not offend any.

Oh yes, sweep it under the rug Prentiss County! Why have there been so few convictions? Let's start a posting of all the murders, both resolved and unresolved in Prentiss County!

Maybe so, however they were asking about a relative who was also pregnant. So if Kirby, Thomas, Kenny, and Steve were pregnant, I think there are some issues. Haha.

A few years back, going through old papers and music from my great great aunt's belongings, we came across a song about this murder. We think my aunt wrote it. We also found a couple of ballads about Ruey Eaton. I've wondered if this was a local incident. I would be interested to hear what you find out.

Maybe it's because law enforcement around here is a joke. We have mostly idiots that are investigating these crimes, not to mention a lawyer on every corner of this fair city that Aldo a joke.

I'd say about three or four of those mentioned above were killed by the same guy.

Your great and fearless law enforcement officers are too busy out chasing a can of beer or a bag of weed or something. U know, all of those things that each and every one of you in that God forsaken county! Yall elected those thugs and dopeheads! Btw, I hear Joey Clark is back at work after going to rehab. Shouldn't all the police be randomly drug tested? And why wasn't he fired? He has sent people to prison for doing the same thing he is/was doing. Where's the justice?

SEEMS LIKE I REMEMBER HEARING THIS STORY WHEN I WAS YOUNGER FROM MY GRANDPARENTS . THEY ARE NOT LIVING NOW. I SURE WISH I COULD REMEMBER ABOUT IT. KEEP POSTING ANY THING YOU FIND OUT ABOUT IT.
