The Beauty Spot is in Erwin. There were some people killed up on a mountain out the Horton Highway years ago. Up past Penley Hollow, but I'm not sure if that's what you're talking about. There was also a woman murdered on Viking Mountain. She was renting a house from a man that still lives on Viking and they think he did it, but didn't have enough evidence. They apparently had a romantic relationship that went sour.

The one on viking mtn, I believe your talking about, if I'm not mistaken was Joani Foulkes, and the man they believe that did it was having an affair with her. She rented the house from him. He was charged and Bill Bell was his lawyer. He was acquitted.

I believe he did it, but BIll BEll is one heck of a lawyer. Not kidding, If I'm ever charged with murder, I'm hiring him!!!

I wish I could remember the mans name that was charged....

Ray Moore was charged and found NOT GUILTY! Bill Bell was his lead counsel. Louis Ricker assisted in the case. I think the victim's name was Joanie Stokes. The attorneys did an EXCELLENT job representing Mr. Moore. Bell alleged that some Vietnam Vet actually did the killing...don't remember his name though...this has been MANY years ago. I think the case went to trial in late '98 or EARLY '99.

One happened near insurance hole on Green Mountain, just a few years ago. Not talking about the Ricker deal where the lady was already dead and pushed off the hill.

I've not seen any pot patches or anything up there, but it is definitely rough. That's the one off the Horton Highway. It's alleged that Kermit Penley killed someone up there. Lured him up there under the pretense of a party and then killed him. I don't remember the victim or victims names though.

The murder on the mountain involving the Penleys involved a convicted felon out of FL who was the "victim". Jama Penley, Kermit penley and Angela Conduff were all charged. Conduff was married to the "victim". She pled and served a few years and is OUT now...I THINK!

Supposedly, the victim was murdered up on the mountain, "insurance hole". The van was set on fire but never went completely down over the embankment. The "victim" was a REAL WINNER...no great loss to society although BELIEVE IT OR NOT he wasn't a bad looking guy!

That's not the one I'm talking about though, Surprised. That's the murder that Kermit got arrested for. This one was on Chimney Top and didn't ever get past an investigation.

My mistake, the guy that got murdered wasn't a cop. His wife was the daughter of a Greene County dispatch.

Unlike the Truth Teller my facts may not be accurate.

I'd like to see that jackass try to kill me. He'd be on the losing end of that deal.
