My mom was told me about murders of 2 babysitters back in 1960. She said the girls were sisters or cousins and were shot to death by the father of the kids they were babysitting. My mom said the man was released from prison in the 70's then murdered some woman. My mom couldn't remember his name. Does anyone remember these murders or what ever happened to the killer?

Could this person possibly be Henry Warth, who is buried at Barker Ridge? The age matches.

Henry Clay Warth was the father of the children being babysat. He shot both with a .22. The girls were cousins: Linda and Penny Qualls. The Warth son later grew up and kidnapped a young girl in the late 1960s or early 1970's. Terrible story and terrible gene pool.
