Well he was groundsman and they put him in the bucket. They electrocuted him . Not many will discuss that day . It's all involves Mike Robinson and Warner the retired foreman . But everyone I've spoke with is very quiet. Even Larry Cleavland wouldn't help . All he aske is why you so interested to find out . And I replied of its your dad wouldn't you want to know what happened . Especially when they came into my grandma's house threating to kill my mom and granny if we try to do anything about it. This is more complicated , and more to it !

Your first step should be to figure out how many ways something like that could happen. Which security measures may or may not have been in place. Problem is you'd have to go by standards of the time which were much lower than today.

Linework is risky. They all know it.

I wouldn't know first thing bout getting access to that information . Yes they all know this is risky. But like I said its complicated. This murder was brought on by racial issue , of a person that was black and my dad was trying to protect him.

You wouldn't know how to get access to the information in this time and age? Do a search. It might take a while but you'll get there. Standards are available. Now who in the crew did what job and didnt' do it. that's the one you can point your finger at.

Sounds like Mike Robinson and Warner are the first two who need someone to have a good talking with. You need some muscle it sounds like. Do to them treating your grandmother and mom the way they did and with Cleavland not wanting to touch it sounds like someone has the hush on it all. Look into some muscle and some protection in case they come for you. Maybe a gun to the head would jar their memory.

That would be hard to gain access.

You mean you are not able to google safety standards? You don't know what positions those people had back then and who might have been responsible for keeping your dad safe?

Just saying. Dig up some general information first so you know what the type of work was, what was involved and what needed to be done to keep people safe. If you don't know any of that you can't talk murder.

Cleveland wasn't in office back then. His predecessor wasn't even in office. So that makes things harder. If they ever looked into this, it's probably in the State Archives by now for storage. That makes it a question of manpower to even look into this. They have more current problems to deal with.

Did the coroner rule this an accident or a murder? If the first, you can forget anybody even opening a file on this at the sheriff's, police or county attorney's department. There is nothing Cleveland could do about that.

If it was ruled a murder, you could ask for this to be looked into as a cold case. Again, cold cases are usually on a back burner, to be looked at when there may be time.

I'm thinking this was ruled an accident. Hence the threat to your grandma and mom. In that case nobody will have gathered evidence. Anything they might have gathered for other reasons (i.e. improving safety standards) has probably been destroyed by now.

Therefore you can only rely on eye witnesses. Apparently one of the people you named has already passed away. The rest of the crew isn't talking. At this point you can only appeal to their conscience. Maybe you get lucky. Likely not.

Any other people observing this will probably not have had the knowledge to differentiate between accident and murder. They may only tell you what they saw. How much attention do you pay to the utility workers? Kids do, but adults? Kids testimony from that far back is unreliable.

I hate to say this, but if he truly was murdered, your only way to find out the truth would be somebody admitting to it. Neither Cleveland or any other investigator will be able to find out anything after such a long time.

I can understand your desire to find out about this, but you may never be able to. It's been forty years.

There's nothing for a Chuck Hall/Charles Hall in the death records in KY in 1973.
