Actually, this was on Cooper Drive, not Sparks - at the corner of Howell Ave & Cooper was a brick building which in Dec 2002 was a car repair/garage, the yellow house Barker lived in was next door to that. I moved from Cahokia at that time - had lived in Cahokia 42 years - about 35 of them on Cooper Drive. Know the area well.

There were five or six murders, including Barker, around our house before moving. One on Range Lane on the other side of the wheat field (I believe it was drug related/drug deal from what I heard) and others scattered around the Sparks/Howell/Cooper/Mildred/R ange area. We could sit on our front porch and watch drug deals - always wondered if the next car would be a drive-by. Decided time to get out, especially since parents passed - nothing left to stay in Cahokia for. Lots of good memories, but was time for us to leave.

Kathy went to Nashville High School - and graduated in 1975. I went to school with her, and she DID graduate. The date of the murder was later in the 1970's - either 78 or 79. Since two women apparently died in the same manner, wonder if it was a serial killer who has since moved on. So sad it has never been solved.

These were in 1960-1965. Around that Time, and they were older women. It was a long time ago.One was on Falling Springs Road,the road next to the old Dairy Queen. There was a family named Houseman and one was killed 2 doors from them. Mrs. Houseman was a teacher in Cahokia at the high school.The Houseman's told me about it years ago.

I have posted this before,but I will post again. When I was around 8-9yrs old I was at the quickway store(at the front of parklane manor)a man tried to get me into his van. This would have been around 1979. It just still bothers me because the man was gone by the time the ladies in the store called the police and we never knew who it was. Now, when I read about the girls that were killed that van always pops into my head. I just wonder if that man was connected to these crimes. I can still see him and that van clear as day.

The Barker murder was a revenge killing. The lady on Sparks was a Domestic killing. The Mildred Ave murder was a handicapped lady that was robbed and murdered. The murder on Range close to QT was a revenge killing. The murder behind the post office was drug related.

Why don't all you people shut up about these murders. Most of you do not know what you are talking about. These people still have relatives and they do not want to hear all this bull shit. If you are going to throw someones name out there, why don't you let everyone know who you are?

Does anyone know anything about a high school kid who was murdered in or near Cahokia around 1986? I have a drunken "confession" from someone and it's bothered me for nearly 13 years. I don't know if it's BS or not, but sometimes it keeps me awake at night. The kid was supposedly a nerd, around 16-years-old and "nobody" was missing him anyway.

Greg Bush was a active satan worshiper. I knew him and the girls he killed. He was creepy. He was found covered in blood after killing Karla and no she did not let him in. She went out to her car and that gave Greg time to sneak in. He killed her child first and then her. Their blood was all over the house. He was found laughing and covered in blood. It was obvious that he did it. Anett was blind when it came to him and really thought he was innocent. I always felt so sorry for his dad. It was a scary time for all of us back then until he was caught. RIP all of Greg Bushes victims.

A kid Randy Yates was killed across from the high school. Stacy Springer was killed in the subdivision behind the school.
