I believe the person that did that murder was convicted, sentenced and did time. I used to work with a really nice guy--it was his mother who was murdered coming out of JC Penney; she worked there.

There was 8 rapes during the mid 70's that never were solved. Yes, they did put a 13 year old fat black kid in jail but he didn't do it.
I know one of the people that were raped and she describes a totally different person.
And of course all the evidence in the case disappeared in usual Jonesboro style.

Supposedly the kid's brother actually did it but the kid took the blame as the brother wasn't a minor. Wood or Woods.

Amanda Tussing's murder never solved. Close enough to J'bro to count.

Early 70's woman shot her husband in the head and killed him. He came home drunk and was hitting her. In house at Richardson Trailer Park off Race Street in Fairview Subdivision.

If my memory is correct,the young black man that murdered the woman at Penney's was a childhood friend of mine named David Lasley. I couldn't believe it when I first heard of the murder, but it was true. Sad story.

The other story of a man castrated was a well known businessman about Jonesboro. He was having an affair with another man's wife and the man was suspicious and caught them. The short of the very convoluted story was that the Businessman was castrated by the Husband and drove himself in his 'vette to St.B's,, and the wife allegedly committed suicide by handgun in very suspicious circumstances, and if I remember correctly, she showed signs of having been beaten and whipped with a coathanger at autopsy. Additionally, supposedly the wife was a very atractive woman with ties to the Governer Clinton administration on a social level.

America 1st,

You've really got some facts twisted around here. Start with the Wikipedia article ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wayne_DuMond ) and then check the external links (like this one: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2007/12/04/docu... )

I guess the hardest case to solve was the one that involved an automobile chop-shop. Cars were being stolen in the area and sold for parts but the police couldn't find a thing.
Things did change when the FBI stepped in an arrested Sheriff Floyd Johnson's son.
Naturally Daddy didn't know nothing about it even thouhg he was a half partner in the business.
I wish I could have been there to see old Mark walk into prison because he was an obnoxious spoiled prick. I also heard he gave up the Booty on the first night.

you're crossing up your stories, the dumond case involved a cousin of the then governor who was raped and then some hick lawman castrated dumond (kept em in a jar on his desk) before they found out he didn't even do it. the other castration was actually a jonesboro man because of an affair like the other poster said
