Reward offered in Jackson County deaths of four teens

Date: March 4, 2003
Publication: Herald-Citizen (Cookeville, TN)

Who killed four teenagers in a fire in Jackson County last year?

If you have any information that might help investigators solve that case, you could earn rewards totaling $11,500.

The authorities have continued to run down every lead they could find in the case, and now they are looking for more clues, hoping somebody can provide that one detail that will lead to the murderer.

It happened February 9, 2002, at a trailer home in Gainesboro.

Investigators said at the time they...

Ever since the day that happened I have been hearing Michael(Cookie)Lynch's name mentioned as the key suspect. I don't know if it is true or not. They also claimed he was not alone. Rumor was that Daniel Young (deceased) also helped him do this. With so many rumors going around about it, its hard to tell what really happened. I only knew one of them personally. Because me and this person had been kids together growing up. It was a extremely terrible act for anyone to do.

I have also heard it was cookie and daniel, and one other I want mention his name.That is the problem all the rumors .How do you know what is fact and what is rumor.I personally have my idea who done this. But I want comment about that. All I know is there was 4 lives tragically lost, and someone knows who did this.And I personally want to see that someone pay for this terrible crime.

I knew Lizzy when she was in her early teenage years. She was sweet! It's hard to believe it's been 7 years already, and you're totally right, it's a shame that the heartless people that did it were never caught. Sooner or later they'll pay for it though.

the person that killed these kids is 6 feet under as a rumor it was told that he admitted to family members that he killed some kids and that he knew the law was lookin for him and so he went outside the house and killed himself on the porch!As for cookie he was mad at one of the boys and got messed up with the killer and talked him into just burning down a trailer...the killer didn't know there was kids in the trailer when he set it on fire!

I'll never forget the day I was told about them being in that fire , my heart sank and I just felt like I was dreaming . The funerals were just unbearable to see and poor Lacy's mama was laying on her casket , gives me cold chills now to this day and makes me understand even more how empty she must have felt and so on now that I have kids of my own . I wasnt able to make it to TJ's but had class with him , Elizabeth's brother was a mess aswell I know they were really close he looked out for her always . Joeseph was who I was closer to and I still think of him and miss him . Lacy was sooo happy the last day I saw her before that weekend . TJ was also all smiles last I saw him I still see him in my mind with that big smile , Joeseph had been giving me hell for what I was wearing that last day lol he was so likeable . This was swept under the rug and basically covered up is how I feel about it . We've all heard speculations on who had part in it so Im sure theres something there , only one is dead now and they said he was seeing people coming from their graves for him before he died , yes we all know that he was on some sh*t too but go figure . Someone knows something and I just wish they'd take it to the right people . R.I.P TO U ALL , WE MISS YOU !!!

Ok, thanks. I knew some Parkers from Jackson County and was just curious as to if he was one of their children, but I didn't know Joe!
