Does anybody have any answers or information on the murder of randy todd? Our family has been searching for answers for over 25 years now and we know there is somebody out there that knows something. Even if you just seen him and talked to him that night, or if you seen who he was talking to or hanging around. Please, every little bit of information helps.

I grew up in the same neighborhood with the Todds. I know them all very well. I have heard rumors about why randy was really killed but how reliable is a rumor? The rumor was that randy knew who killed the teacher that was dumped on 177 and was intending to tell the police. So in turn to keep him quiet he was killed and left in the middle of the road by diversion channel. Its ironic that this post shows up at this time when Josh Keezer was just released after being unlawfully convicted. Because the same man that testified against Keezer is who i've heard is responsible for the murder of the teacher and Randy Todd the rumor is that the Abott brothers are the ones that murderd Randy and the teacher.I have thought many times about telling Billy or Rita or the police but as i said how reliable is a rumor though many people in the neighborhood im sure has heard the same thing. I hope that telling what i've heard will lead to the Arrest of the GUILTY!! Hopefully there is DNA or some other evidence that will help the familys with closure.

Okay I am not familiar with this case what so ever, but I have followed the Kezer case so your statements make me curious. Okay who was the teacher in question and when was she killed? This Randy Todd, he was killed in 1980 correct? If you could answer I would really appreciate it!

From what i remember the teacher worked at S.E.M.O. University.She was murdered they put her body in the trunk of her car and dumped her off the side of the road.They have closed the case but from what i understand they don't have the right suspect. For more info goto the archives of the southeast missiourian. I believe it happened between 1977-1980 Hope this helps!

Did i say that I believed they where involved? I stated that those are the rumors in cape but i sure in the hell would not rule them out. Hearing these rumors from several people would you?

If so i would gladly tell you all i've heard in confidentiality and give you the names of other's who have heard these rumors.So please contact me if needed.As far as anyone else im not on here for gossip!

Well there is just one thing that doesn't make sense to me. The Abbot twins were not born until 1969, that would make them 9 years old when the teacher was killed and about 11 I guess when the other murder happened. Do people believe that two children committed these murders or is this all just rumors people have started because they have a grudge against the Abbots?

You have a very good point that i will not argue. As i stated these were the rumors that i have heard. You are correct Mark and Matt were born in 1969 so i thank you for clearing that up! I personally don't have anything against the Abbotts!

It was andy abbott, he went to prison for the murder of the lady but never heard he had anything to do with Randys death. I knew Randy from grade school through high school, he was liked by many including me, he was a good kid didnt deserve that, what a shame. makes me sad to hear about again after all this time

Randy was killed when Andy was on trial for the murder of Margaret Smith. The Abbotts had nothing to do with his death!

The Abbott twins would have only been maybe 11 or 12 years old

Randy was not shot. His body was left at the diversion channel in a ditch. He does have a brother named Billy. Get your story straight before you start talking.A lot of people in this town know what happened to Randy and I pray that some day, someboby will tell the truth for his parents sake

He was jumped on by 3 or 4 guys and beaten and ran over with a car, then pulled off the road and left to die
