Who are some of the most famous criminals/high profile cases in Southern W.V. history? Off the top of my head, I would say that the Megan William's case ranks up there pretty high.

Dana December Smith, he should make the list. Didn't he kill a mother and daughter near Hamlin? He was from Logan County. Pure peice of shit. Or the Santa Claus gang. The motorcycle hoods from this area that murdered Susie Fortuna for informing on them.

How about Willis Stollings who shot his girl In front of everyone at the bar in Mt Gay. And his new wife got him on parole who works in the Courthouse.
Or Carl Goff getting away with murder. Or Billy Brennan getting manslaughter instead of murder because Sheriff Hunter tainted half the evidence, just to name a few.

There is a big difference between political vote buying and killing someone. I do think the Brennen boy might take the cake here. didnt he shove his wife in the trunk of the car? Where is he now? Is he in jail or out like most of the murderers are. You smoke a joint and they want to lock you away forever but kill someone in cold blood just gets you on home confinment.

I think that the name you're looking for is Matt Ooten, just who we wanted teaching our kids.

Dana December Smith killed a mother and daughter on Cabin Creek. The mother was in a wheelchair, he cut em up pretty bad. A very messy scene!! The son found them a few days later. All this because he needed a ride, he just wrecked a car a few miles down the road and had to get the hell out of dodge! He parked their car at the Dept. of Highways garage and went to his moms house. He is now where he belongs and will be until they carry his worthless body out in a body bag!!!!

That fat Brennan guy was pretty rotten also. Killed his and put her body in his trunk. Does anyone know what happened on this? Isn't her Mrs. Greshams cousin or something?

Carl Goff was found not guilty because he was not guilty!

Miki Koontz who was murdered in Mingo Co. executions style.(attorney Tim Koontz' sister)

Ruby Newsome from Holden who was shot in the head and took to 22 mountain and seton fire. Who did that?

That Willis Stollings you mentioned, how did he meet this woman he is married to now? How did she know him to get him paroled? Was she that desperate for a man to get a murderer out of jail. I sure wouldn't want to marry a murderer. If he could kill one woman, why not another?

Brennan is currently at the Welch Correctional Facility. He was denied parole in January but comes up again next January. If paroled in January of 2012, he will be under DOC supervision, but if he discharges his sentence in December of 2012, he will be released a totally free man. He still denies causing Lisa's death. To add insult to injury, he claims she committed suicide. Too bad the case was mishandled from the beginning and he was only convicted of voluntary manslaughter instead of first degree murder. Unforturnately, neither Lisa nor her family received justice in this matter. I only hope that once released, misfortune visits his doorstep daily and he suffers the way he has caused suffering for so many others.

Billy Brennan has nothing in common with his cousin Marsha. She is a law abiding woman, she can not help who she is related to. I am sure most of us have relatives we are very ashamed of. So please do not bring up her name when it comes to him, he is a murderer.
