Does anyone remember a double murder that took place 10-15 years ago on a mountain in Greene County. I remember that it was a man and a woman. I think they were married to other people. I don't remember the details because I was so young at the time. It seems like they worked together or played music together???? They were murdered on a mountain, I think at a lookout spot, maybe in the Horse Creek area??? I'm interested in hearing the details and whether it was ever solved.
They were in a band "Crystal Vision" together. Her name was Marcina Ratliff. She was the lead singer. I believe his name was Jeff something. A Young man, who they say was related to a Unico Co Sheriffs Deputy, came out of the woods, he had been hunting and asked the couple parked at the beauty spot if they had any jumper cables. The man went to his trunk to get some and the young man shot and killed him. He then raped Marcina and shot and killed her. He was arrested that same day and was placed in a mental instution. I was the Bass Player in Crystal Vision.

Im so disgusted at how hear say can pass judgement on the area from where Kermit came from. Every community has their bad points but at least out in this country area we stay to our own. Try comparing this area to greeneville and explain to me how its any better than out here. This is beautiful country and I live here Penley hollow. The conditions that was posted earlier are because the county doesn't take care of their roads or any other thing that is suppose to be in that matter. I can at least walk outta my house in peace without people bothering me. Unlike greeneville or crackville as its turned out to be. If you have a 4Wheeler or 4wd go see for yourself. There is nothing wrong with the people out here.
I agree

I agree and I know for a fact Greeneville is in worse shape. These people wouldnt come out here acting stupid because they would be put in there place. I wouldnt ever wanna live anywhere else besides here, things can happen anywhere and its really sad that people point fingers at one place when they have a higher crime rate than most.

It was a jones, he killed his brother and sister in law over some land and buried them on holston mountain. He was tried in sullivan county and found guilty. It is one of the only cases where a quilty verdict was given in a case tried without the bodies being allowed to be entered as evidence.

You can't re-write history but you can use the past as a learning experience & spring board into good things in the future. The past is only a mistake if you didn't learn from it ;)
I've never been in legal trouble but sometimes my relationship decisions haven't been the best. I wish I could re-wind & re-write some things but I can't.:( guess we need to wake up each day & concentrate on making the best of it in every way & hope for the best lol

Kermits papaw or maybe great grand dad worked that mountain. Not sure which one kermit was,there were so many kids running around back then. The old man died and later his wife divided the land up about 6 or 8 ways. He had a huge orchard up on that mountain that he raised corn and beans in around all the friut trees. It had about 150 trees in it. They called it the " new ground" ,it laid just below the cliff that runs the length of that ridge.

After the kids got the shares they cut ever tree off it and sold the logs. Some kids cut trees of others share and they had a surveyor come out and mark the lines so the idiots could count stumps. After they got the log money they went thru it like grass thru a goose,brand new cars on their tops in front of rooten trailers with the wheels stripped and engine gone.

If any of them went to school it wasnt much help,bunch of familys like that around,family tree with no branches.

I used to live out there but one can not live near a bunch like that unless you kill them all.
