Anyone remember this? I believe Sherman Wright, and a guy named Tracy were involved with Mrs. Amburgey, and they all plotted to kill her husband. I can't seem to find any news paper articles or court records online about it. Too long ago, I guess.

I was 12 or 13 at the time, so I don't remember much, other than the fact that it was a high profile case, locally anyway. I'd like to know the first names of the people involved; it would make researching the case much easier. I would greatly appreciate any information.

"They" didn't all do the plotting ... His wife (Velda) did it all. She's a piece of trash!

I believe it was 1980 or 1981. Husband name was Gay Amburgey. It's my understanding that Velda is out of prison now.

You can go to Library and Archives and find the newspaper articles from The State Journal which they have on microfilm. You will need to know the approximate time period to make it easier to find the articles.

You must not have a life or you either have a very boring one. May God bless all those who have no "ghosts" in their closets or their pasts!

This happened long ago. Let it rest for the sake of the victim's family and the families of those involved. I am neither, by the way, but I remember the events.
