Just driving by that house gives me the creeps, it always has since I was a kid. Ive heard the stories about the murders, and it's hard to believe his family still lives in that house. If that happened to my, I would have burnt it down.

Yes, I believe that the sister married a Pruitt. The brother of the woman who currently lives in the house murdered their mother and cousin on December 4, 1980.

Wow, I grew up in the grays area and remember well the murders. Sac Thomas was rumored to have overdosed on LSD and would have bad flash backs, before he went on his killing spree. It was so horrible. It was also rumored that before this happened, he watched the movie Halloween.
I can't wait to read the book, to see how close it is to what I remember. I'll be on the watch for it.

I hope the book clears up some of the rumors that are floating around. The author has done his research well and tells the story from the eyes of the only person who was there (and still alive), other than R.C. Thomas Jr himself.

RC Thomas. He was also a stand out football player said he could have went pro out of high school. Went to Lexington on a recruitment trip for wildcats and someone slipped LSD in his drink.

You should read the book, I think u will find it very informative and it may help clear up some of the rumors that have been out there about R.C.

Unfortunately, that is another rumor surronding this case. His drug screening came back negative. To find out the real story, pick up a copy of the book :)

There is some people that RC made the remarks to, that he couldn't stand his mother and wanted to kill her. I've been told remarks like this was made different times over the years of his growing up.

That is very sad to me and it is even more sad that an innocent young man lost his life for no reason other than being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
