I think somehow they found the killers, but i never heard if they done any time. i dont think they did. i could be wrong though. if someone knows more about this please let us know.
To the best of my knowledge there was never a conviction in the Lemons case if that's the murder you're referring to.

As for other murders in the area Wright City was a bloody place during the 70's. I would venture to say there were several murders there that remain unsolved.

I bet those mountains above Broken Bow , could tell some tales. Many a person lay on those mountains, never to be seen again... I remember a lot from my childhood.... Boot leg whiskey , stills... All in those mountains. Everybody had a gun, and many used them. Drunks and ignorance made a bad combination on Saturday nites! Later, it was drugs... McCurtain county and drugs are all mentioned in the same breath. Pitiful, and not a soul to stop it! The county needs a Buford Pussser!

does anyone remember "Rufus Williston" being killed in Marion County Texas April 27, 1973? Lots of names are associated with the casse but no arrest has been made. Billy Ray Bryant shot Rufus and his,brother Doyle in Jan of 1973 in the Haworth area. Both surived but later Rufus was killed in Texas.

Yes thinker those mountains are full of skeletons. Back in the day though it was just the folks involved in the dealings that ended up hurt.

Whiskey runners didn't kill nobody cause they didn't want attention drawn to them or the area they were making shine in. In the early days of pot being the main drug it was the same thing. If you weren't involved in it you were pretty safe up in the hills. Again, I remember seeing things as a kid and we just looked the other way and went on about our business. What kinds of things you ask? Pickups with water tanks, tillers, rolls of black water pipe, piles of those pots that shrubs and stuff come in when you buy them at the store. Those kinds of things you ignored and you were left alone. As the 90's rolled in and the gov went all out commando after the pot growers it got more dangerous. Once pressured and cornered the growers and big movers got a little more edgy.

I don't condone any if it, but it wasn't until they started cooking the meth that it really changed. Sure there were some things around the pot fields to deter people, but these meth cookers started setting out booby traps. Add to that they in large part use their own stuff and you've got the potential for serious danger. Walk up on a tweaker armed and guarding his lab and your in a world of hurt. We ran across some scary things up there in those hills over the years. Old burned out cars, tents that were still up and camping stuff sitting around that had been there for a long time that you could tell someone was camping and just left everything for some reason and never returned. We once found a guy from Dallas living in an old car that wouldn't run. He had literally driven 30 molest from pavement, found an old logging trail down to near a creek, parked the car and started living out of it. A couple years later I heard weyerhauser made him leave. However, the day we came upon a bunch of that old Vietnam era camo netting draped over a series of cables run between trees we left and I've never been back in that area. Won't ever go in that area again either.

I am still wishing the murders of Don Stevenson and his wife would be answered. Who done it ? What was he working on at the time ? They just had a gathering and it was around Thanksgiving (not christmas).. Then torched the house.. Is there not any thing you can do to open the case back up and find this crazed murderer ??? I'm sure Its someone who walks among us..

Haven't checked the forum in a while. Was nice to see the responses.. Was great to see that many besides mysel, remembered these cases. The comment above, that Wadie Ward deserved what he got... Makes me wonder about the" poster"? No ones deserves to be murdered. Period! He was no angel, but he was a person. The fact that Judy Parker was allowed to tell her LIES about that night he disappeared, and still walks with the truth stuck in her throat, is appalling!! I have all but shouted that Mrs leona Wootens murder Demands to be re- opened!! She had ONE beneficiary of her estate... He is living in your county, wealthy, and a prominent member of your town! Almost 40 years ago, not so. Mid 20's appears on the science to see a grandmother is never paid any attention to before.... Connect the dots! I knew her and she was terrified someone was trying to kill her... Well they did, and SHE did let them in. Go figure.... Must have known them? Archie Trotter, robbed and murdered as he loaded his bread truck in the early morning hours like he always did... Someone carries that memory! So many dead, no answers?
Care to fill me in on what you believe to have happened to Wade Ward?

i think a lot of times the law know who commited the crimes, but they just looked the other way. it's the good old boy system.

The crime referred to by "truth" would've probably happened at the Candle Light, a recently-closed beer joint on the OK side of the state line on HWY 4.

To concerned.... No I was NOT implying that Judy Parker did anything to Wadie. However I do think she knows exactly what happened to him. She was with him and the story she gave stunk to
High heaven..... She is probably scared for herself.... Doesn't matter. A man is dead... And the truth is " stuck" in her throat! It's wrong to hang on to what happened, and for the county to cover for her is beyond disgraceful.

My brother Eugene Ellis was tortured and murdered(rumors hv been the same for yrs so thers some truth n em)bak n 2002. It ws ruled suicide yet his body had to b removed n several body bags...im sorry bt a human cannot decapitate himself. It breaks my heart to hear of the things that wer dun to him.yet osbi ruled it suicide. With chris dill being one of the lead investigators yet whn he ws told of some evidence to go gt, all of sudden the evidence ws gone n he knew nothing abt it-yeah right. Our family shlda never told him abt it. N a girl named amanda supposedly knows details abt it bt is too terrified to tell, cuz she told befor n ws threatened the same wld happen to her. My brothers murder ws well known by several ppl, ones involved and others tht jst gossip.... bt everyone knew abt it-yet everyone too scared to say truth abt it. He ws only 21 yrs old.

Moved away but are there dates connected with Ellis death/homicide? I am the person who started this thread and I am still amazed by posts that I know about and those I had no clue that had even happened. It would seem helpful with 21 year old Ellis and others to have year, month, possible location of crime. Maybe it will jar a memory of something that was important and may not have seemed so at the time. Sorry for your loss and truly applaud you for speaking up as others have.

My brothers body ws found in July of 2002 in Hugo, Ok at Bud Davis's empty trailer house which is(was) located next door to his brother's trailer house right ther in town. They immediately ruled it a suicide. The thing is, my brother told several of us family members that if anything were to happen to him, that no matter what-he would NOT kill himself, that it would be in the hands of someone else. He knew that ppl wer out to get him. So when his body was found, we knew it was not suicide. So when thy ruled it that way, it caused suspicion bt in the grieving n mourning moments following, we wer all just kinda taken back by it. A family member of mine had even been told n secrecy of some evidence location(n case smthn happened to the girl telln it). So thts when we shared the info w chris dill(osbi) thinkn ther ws an actual investigation. Next thing ya know, this man(dill) claims to not even know what wer talkn abt when we ask if he went n got it. N the evidence was gone. I believe strongly that he or he had someone dispose of it. I wish soo badly that someone could look into my brothers murder. I wish for me n my sis bt more for my Mom. He was her baby boy. Iv always been told that Boomer(Amanda Brandon) knows details bt is way too scared to talk. Bt to me she claims to know nothing....its very sad cuz my bro loved her...

Sammy and Bud Davis has killed many people in thier lives and God will take care of them in the end. I remember when I was told they hung a guy from a tree and skint him alive only to leave him to die. There isnt anything to do with them due to the choctaw county police is on their side just as long as tey get their profit from the drugs they dont mess with them.
