So come on folks, let's share some old stories from Greene County's history, about old crimes, mysteries, conspiracies, etc. Such as people who got away with crimes or were suspected of crimes but never convicted, or crimes that were never solved.

I'm reasonably young and a lot of things probably happened before my time, so hopefully some of you Topix readers can share some of your knowledge with me. It's just interesting to me, and we're all anonymous here.

Something I've always heard is that some of the "upper crust" of Greeneville has had a past hand in the drug trade, and that's where a lot of their wealth was generated. How much truth is there to this? Who was allegedly involved?

Everyone feel free to chime in with other questions, answers, and information! This could be very interesting!

Great topic! I remember hearing something abouta pot plane scandal of some sort, years ago. And I'm sure there have probably been several interesting murder stories. Remember seeing one called murder on the mountain or something like that. Also remember something about a Turnmire and murder. Maybe someone else with a better memory will come along with details.

In the late 80's there was hysteria concerning Black Magick and Satanism across the nation. Sheffey Hollow was an old road out in Midway, Mosheim, TN. Where many claimed murders, cannabalism, Satanism, and human sacrifice was rampant. Many of the claims were due to the illegal dumping of chemicals in the area, and honestly weird shit went on. Ask some Gen Xers from Mosheim about it

I heard some local boys took some hitchhikers out there, made them strip and 'perform' and then raped them and killed them, then drank their blood and fed the meat to their pit bulls and dumped what was left somewhere in Shelton laurel. Who was it and did they get caught?

Let's here more stories. Come on mysteries of Greene County, murders, cover-ups. Higher-up corruption, murders on the mountain or Weavers Bend. Come on tell us what you know. I will start: I remember back in the 90's two guys supposedly "jumped" off the bridge at Big Ridge in Mosheim. Anyone remember details about this?? Was anyone ever caught??

Ginger was in Woodridge before she killed her parents if I remember correctly. John Rodgers was her lawyer and claimed a man named “papa smurf” did it. The truth was she ran with a rough crowd at Chucky Doak. One was a Shelton, also Trampus Rednour I believe. She is now out of prison.

If you say so.

There was enough acid (and various other chemicals) floating around the Starburst back then it's hard to tell.

They did jump and no one was charged because no one did anything wrong they were drunk and was being foolish and died as a result!!

I don't think it was intentional. I believe they stopped to relieve themselves and crawled over the barrier to avoid any undue interaction with law enforcement while urinating.
If you ever set foot in the bathroom at the establishment they had just left it makes sense.
