Thanks for the information Sage. I thought other people on this form would be of interest.

Apparently, James Green wrote a book on this with title of Maybe in Memphis.

I believe this the same fellow that you went to school with. I also believe he is deceased.

There is a 13 page article in the Riverfront Times in St. Louis.

The paragraph that I included in my reply to you may come from the article you mention in the Riverfront Times. I will check out the Riverfront Times writing. The 13 page article I have, I have had for many years. Don’t remember where I got it. Just stumbled up on it and kept it in a computer file for all these years. You are correct, James is deceased, and has been for many years now.

I was wondering if the journalist searching for material on "Murders in the 50, 60, and 70s has completed his or her research. I would be interested in a copy of the completed version or find out what exactly where your at or if you are still working on it. By the way do you know where Van Meeks is, I understand he got shot in mid 80s for getting caught breaking in home at Hayti or what happened to Jaybird Gatewood. It was a surprise that somebody knew about Maurise Pig. Keep the good work up.

YES YOU POSTED! You use "an" instead of the correct grammar "and". What a coincidence when someone calls you out that it's Judy Smith you respond on the same day announcing you "just now saw this". You're not very smart! Haha I would assume you're AN eight year old if I didn't know better. Have a nice day AND learn a bit of grammar!

I know who you are now wrote:
<quoted text>Hey Judy Smith I know it's you now. I have been reading some other topics where someone from dyersburg has been posting with such vengence and anger against a certain family.
Thank God I decided to read this topic and figuered out now who you are. Judy Smith of all people. I have been trying for days to figure who lives in dyersburg that could hate Ms. Melba Faulkner and Ms.Pat Guest and their entire family as much as your were saying. Now I know because your comment was
"she put me in the middle of what she did do you feel sorry for them i went through pure hell because of that happing an i had no involment but my name got smeared because of it i knew mary from church as a young person she was my sunday school teacher because of her i now trust no one an i also left caruthersville"
That's how I know this is Judy Smith because she is actually telling the truth. Judy you didn't have anything to do with the murder of Mike that is true. Mary did use you for her alibi and I am sure that was a stressful time because many people put you down from Mike's family and they did make your life hell and blame you too. For Mary to use and misuse your trust was a horrible thing. Mary certainly took advantage of that trust and you of course are very hurt. Taking your anger out on Ms.Melba Faulkner and Ms.Pat Guest and their families is wrong though. Those ladies don't hold you responsible for what Mary has done. You were an innocent by stander who got caught up in Mary's mess. Judy what you have said against the Faulkners and Guests is unfair because I am sure they would tell you that Mary should have never solved her problems with violence and she should have never brought you into it. Mary made a wrong decision and she is being punished for it. You have been punished too from the anger you show in your post. I feel for you but Ms.Melba and Ms.Pat are two of the finest ladies I know who would never say things against you. Be mad at Mary she did do you wrong but please don't bad mouth Ms.Melba and Ms.Pat and their families. That was really cruel especially for Ms. Melba they are no more responsible for what Mary did than you are. Your now doing to the Faulkners and Guests what was done to you by Mikes family. That wasn't fair to you and your not being fair now. If it hurt you so bad for Mikes family to bad mouth you then you can only image what Ms.Melba and Ms.Pat are feeling by the cruel words you said.
Good call out! You rattled her tail feathers she couldn't wait any longer to respond. Same day and still using the incorrect use of "an".

I remember one time that I was at the filling station right across from the ferry road I think it is called truman blvd. in C'ville. There was this pinball machine in it and I was in there. I was around 11 yrs. old. Bo Young came in and opened the pinball machine and told me that he would give me all the nichels out of the machine, if I would get all the other money and give it to him. I made about 4 dollars in nichels. He told me to be there when He came in and he would always do that for me.He new I was a poor kid and he was nice to me. Sure wish this horrible thing would not have happened to him. What a sad story. May he rest in peace.
Thanks for sharing your story.

Mike Bell was a loner that hung out by the wall. Odd guy he was. Didnt surprise me that he was involved in a brutal murder.

Bo Young was murdered in 1982. Steven Swofford died in 1986. What role did Steven play in the murder of Bo Young?
