Back in the early 70's, there was a murder case of a child, first child murder of the decade in Putnam Co. The mother claimed that the child was abducted and results was that the little boy, age 3 was murdered by the stepfather (Adams) and was taken to the woods, somewhere else,(cant't remember all details, someone remember this?) and the police finally put 2 and 2 together. Convicted the mother and stepfather. Stepfather was on death row for a long time. Don't remember if the Adams man, died in prison or not. The mother served time, also. Would like to know of the results of the ppl involved. Long time ppl of this county should remember this. Shocked the county and brought new light to child abusers.

That young man was Jeff Judd. He worked at Burger Chef when we were in junior high (on 10th St - I think the school was turned into Prescott Middle School - I have been gone from Cookeville since 1980). My sister and I used to hang out & play foosball with Jeff, Eddie Smith, Rick Smith, Scott Ullfers & "Monk" (both from Sparta)& the Allen brothers at Buffalo Chips & JJ's. Had typing with Eddie & Jeff (Mrs. Allen's class) at PCSHS- they ran me broke, borrowing paper. ;-)

Jeff was a great kid. He and my sister dated some, but we were all just real good friends.

The store where he died used to be a great little neighborhood grocery owned by Dean Mayberry. Went to school with his daughter, Menieca. Jimmy Blankenship was a bag boy there.

In addition to Patrick Adams & Ricky Goolsby, I remember Tena Craighead being murdered while working at a gas station (Texaco?) at Willow & 7th. She was real young - like 17 - but already married to Richard Craighead. I cannot remember who killed her or if it was even solved.

As far as the Bloody 8th goes, I remember Danny Stewart's daddy killing his wife in front of Danny's 2 little brothers in Baxter (Hwy 56 ?) in the mid 70s. The 2 little kids were like 10 or so.

Yeah, forgot the year, it was in Bill Cameron's office there on S Jefferson Ave. Plus there was one at M&M Market on TN 136 north of town.

Crazy people these days. If your wife or girlfriend leaves you, just let her go! There's no need to blow people away, for crap's sake.

The murders that have happened around here are sad. There was an old couple that was selling property in either sparta or crossville. They were from another country. Someone killed them and burnedthe house down with them in it. There was also a lady up on buck mt that was murdered. Guy named jr murdered by his two cousins at what used to be the factory. And there was paul rigsby who was murdered by his nephew. I remember sen burks too. He was a very kind man. That was sad too.

In 1970 Rodney Dobbs brutually murdered my sister, Lucy Anne Fullerton, and to date he remains free. The fillowing link will give you enough of the information on the case to know that this crime depicts the epitome of corruption and misuse of the justice.
http://news.google.com/newspapers...
A billboard should be erected warning the people of Rodney Dobbs getting away with murder. Also, the State of Tennessee should have to answer for this misuse of justice.

I'm Lucy Fullerton's sister and her killer is named Rodney Dobbs. He got away with murder because he pled insanity. The state of Tennessee is to blame for mishandling the case from the start. At any rate, insane or not, Rodney Dobbs remains free and the state of Tennessee is ever so sorry for not being able to do anything about it. My parents spent years trying to get him to go to trial and behind bars. The evidence was lost and many of the key players are dead. Rodney is still alive and he confessed to murdering her.
He got away with murder. Do you feel safe?

History man
It's more than a shame, it's a crime and everyone agrees that it's unforgiveable, still no one in the justice system will help. I don't know how they can live with themselves knowing they let a killer go free. For that matter, how does Rodney Dobbs, admittedly a disturbed and violent man who confessed to her murder, live with himself? It's as if her life didn't matter.

How is it that you remember this story? I see you go by the moniker of history man so I'm guessing you enjoy staying informed? In reference to a lifetime of agony, my life has been good and I suppose shaped by my history. Her death will never be one of those events where I can say, oh well, some good came out of it. It didn't happen for a reason. The laws have changed regarding the plea of insanity, but they never should have existed in the first place. Crazy or not, murderers like Rodney Dobbs should be locked up where they can't hurt anyone else and be punished for their crime. My frustration is centered on the State of Tennessee. They bumbled and stumbled and let the ball drop. The officials in charge of the case were careless and unprofessional.
I guess I just want it known that her life mattered. We, her family, have all gone on to lead happy, productive lives but there is a void; Lucy is dearly missed. Linda

The man shot at hotel as he tried to leave in his vehicle. The shooters relative went with him climbing up the grassy slope behind the mexican resturant knowing he was carrying a gun in a sack. Nothing was ever said about him.

The store became a carlot. I drove by before dayight on my way to work at crossville. Pulled in a little way thinking I would buy orange juice. It looked empty and I got scared and backedmy car out. To think I was fearing being alone with the store clerk.

I am sure he was charged and tried, but i think the jury found him guilty of a lesser crime. I think his wife was meeting a man there and he was the one that got killed.
