Al Abbadessa killed that girl. I don't care what the police said. I used to know the scumbag and he always thought he was above the law. The man's a dickhead and he ought to have his business shut down, go to prison and burn in HELL for what he did! He probably got that stupid know-it-all waiter (Cole Mitchell) to do it for him. I always thought him and Al were fags anyway! Screw them both and screw the F*&king Macon police for writing this off as suicide - f87k that town!

RE: Julianne Helton - girl found hung on cherry picker at Macon Votech.. they changed their story to make it look like she was found by the railroad tracks.. It was in the newspaper in 1984 about the cherry picker. Everyone should remember.http://www.brainwaves cience.com/FairfieldLedg...
A friend was on the search team to find Julie, she was NOT the one found murdered/found hung on cherry picker at Macon Votech. I don't remember the exact situation so I won't comment further on that murder. However it was NOT Julie Helton!
Julie was found bound with her hands and feet behind her & with the ligature also around her neck and she was by the railroad tracks and she did have torture marks on her body!
I still think this is just a nasty cover up!

I believe the actual female that was killed at the VoTech school was named Kathy Gilstrap. From north Bevier.

I have tried the onion rings they are awesome. Im pretty good friends with Al so he always makes sure Im set up when I go In. Al is probably one of the most polite and nice humanbeing I know. I really feel bad that people drag his name through the mud just because some girl decided to kill herself.

Aint that something ! So WHY has anyone not gone to the police yet. Does anyone know where she was found ? Floor or bed ? I bet they didn't even finger print the knife. How can you slit your wrist and your throat ? I HATE to say this, but was she sexually assulted or ANYTHING like that. There are a lot of factors involved. I'll tell you this, I've heard from SEVERAL people that AL may have been involved. Now to read what I'm reading about him being in her yard and her being scared. Why would that scare her ? What did the voice mails say ? Did they get the tapes ?
THIS IS FLAT OUT BULL SHIT ! FIND THEM, AND LET'S SLIT THEIR THROAT . BTW--- NOBODY CUTS THEIR OWN THROAT ! Look up nationwide suicides.
April was my first cousin. we all know she wouldn't have done anything like this...they found her in her bed. knife in her left hand and behind her back. she was right handed. i hate all the fuckin cops around here because they just erased everything! they had her phone and laptop for at least two weeks..from what i heard her car was FULL of gucci purses and expensive jewelry all with tags still on them. al DID want her. he'd try to get girls before and april was the only one he couldn't buy off. i'm not saying any of this is true, but isn't it logical? i WISH i could find SOME kind of evidence to bring her case back up and solve it the RIGHT way. she won't rest peacefully until we do. i miss her so much...

The girl on the cherry picker was Kathey Gilstrap the wrong person is in prison for it. The mentally retarded janitor.
Everyone I know ...knows about the Julie Helton cover up. Will anyone do anything about it? NO.
Because you will wind up just as dead as she is. Fact.
Remeber the old lady on the south side of Macon that killed herself? With a bag over her head? Then strangled herself...OKAY. Oh then a week later her brother shot himself....OKAY.*It goes on and on and on.

I'm very caught up in memories right now... and i hate to say but April Marie Campbell talked to me begging me to come see her one night to make sure she wasn't in harm from an Abadessa character that just "had to give her an expensive purse." I know she also talked to a few other gentlemen about the same situation and it saddens me every day that I didn't defy rules and make a trip to Bevier to see her. A few weeks later I got a call. This call was after her and I made plans the previous day to meet at her work...it saddened me to not see her at Walmart that day, but co-workers comforted me and said she never showed up and expected she was sick. The call explained otherwise...and to this day I wish I would have done something to prevent this. I can't come to the realization that this girl committed suicide after making so many plans for the weekend...especially since they were with me. It's very hard and part of me wants to believe that other factors contributed to this...but I still feel saddened and hurt til this day. April you are a great soul and will be forever missed. I learned over time that in a way I loved you and your personality...I'm just sad that I only have the balls to say it over such an irrelevant website because in my mind I owe you a lot more. But it only seems to be treated like it's no big deal when I bring your name up among my other peers that did not know you as I did. Love always....your midnight chatter.(We'll watch Incubus live together, someday gorgeous.)

I'm from russellville Arkansas and JB Grinder is my cousins dad. (Her mom, Donna Harris, is my dads sister). And yes he did commit 3 other known murders in 1976 just outside of Arkansas. He has been convicted of them and has life without parole. Its very scary to know my aunt Sissy, Donna, could've been killed. I know my dad said he abused her. But hes where he belongs now, for life....

I do not believe this to be true!! She was not the type of person to kill herself. The police just want to take an easy out and not get off their lazy asses and work. Oh and Bevier does not have a police dept. they have one cop. Macon County need help to get this straightened out and find the person or persons that did this.
She killed herself.

The Macon Sheriff's office had and may still have some CORRUPT individuals who "serve and protect" Some of them live or are from Bevier. Do you think that the deputies and sheriff back then were really that stupid? OR, do you think that this whole thing was covered up from the beginning? I read someone say something about onion rings. That's weird because there is some sheriff guy named SKINNER who talked about these onion rings all the time, while working in the Sheriff's Department. You can see him in this "Al" guys restaurant quite frequently. They happen to be good friends. I met Skinner from the "inside" and I know a FAKE when I see him. He also falsified information and got an innocent man sent to prison. I met this man, and he is going to win his appeal and get out of prison because of the lies Skinner told in his CORRUPTED "investigation." Too many coincidences...She didn't kill herself, she was murdered...But, sometimes it's not what you know it's what you can prove. I knew her since we were little kids and she would not kill herself. I think someone's "reputation" as a prominent businessman was in jeopardy because the truth was going to get revealed. So he did what most bad men with money would do. Pay for the problem to go away and be covered up...Don't say this doesn't happen even in small towns. Your naive or blind to justice and the truth if you don't feel like she was murdered...R.I.P April, those people will get what they deserve in the end...until then PAY ATTENTION to who and what's going on around you. The Devil is in the details, and also in Public Service and maybe even in the Restaurant Business. I am glad Kevin Shoemaker is the new Sheriff...Maybe there is hope for the citizens around here (especially the innocent)...Let's not repeat the mistakes of the past...God bless to April and her family...I hope you may find peace...
