They are all bad someone raised that trash. Right
i think (not sure, lol just think) that when people talk about "the rigdons" they generally mean joey, billy and bobby...not every rigdon in kentucky.

i hate the rigdons as much as anyone, they killed my friend kara, but generalizations are always wrong because there is always an exception.

What have any of the other Rigdons been accused of? They are all trash? How so? I can think of several in the immediate family who have no criminal record, let alone a traffic ticket, lol. If being educated, working for a living, and being a productive member of society makes them trash, do you also fall into that category? You likely fall short even on that list. What makes you different, your last name? How are you better? What's funny is I don't see any of them on here bashing anyone, so wouldn't that in fact make them BETTER than you?
BRAVO!!!!!!!!!!

I find it so funny that everyone is so quick to blame the parent when an adult child gets into trouble. Joey raised them boys to work hard, which both have done, take care of their families, which they have done, and stand up for themselves and those in need, which they have done on numerous occasions. Maybe your parents are to blame for raising such a judgemental prick. Maybe we should all throw stones at your father, but then again most are too afraid to let their identity be known. Guess father of the year would be completely out for your dad? Freud would have a field day out of your "daddy" issues. Since when did all of you become perfect? My family is not perfect and neither is yours. The small town of Lebanon and the KSP were left scratching their heads, because they were so sure that the lies being told were the gospel. When the lack of evidence proved that hundreds of thousands of taxpayer's dollars were wasted on a hunch, they have been looking for a quick revenge. Surely you aren't so niave to believe that our great justice system and law enforcement aren't capable of doing such things? Until a guilty verdict has been laid by a jury of their peers, then nobody really has an argument here. As far as Joey goes, this man has lost 2 sons to the system, even though temporarily,(it still hurts all parties involved)his mother is beyond sick, and he has grandchildren involved (who are hurting as well). Lay off with your ignorance, because that is all that seems to be coming from you.

I'm not the one on hear bad mouthing anyone!! I have more respect for myself than that! Read your own comment about being a coward! You use the term Rigdon like the only family members are Joey, Billy & Bobby. There are others but then again, you don't give a d*amn about that, do ya??? It is so easy to sit where you are and run your mouth with general terms about an entire family. That is my whole issue - be specific when addressing a person and not the whole family! I agree with another post, it's like saying that because a black person goes to jail, all black people are bad. Because one "George" "Mattingly" "Smith" did something wrong, are you judging that whole family? AGAIN, BULLSHIT on it! Throw out any family name, you are gonna hear smut because that is what people like you live for. Your have tarnish in your family and I am 100% positive of it! There is no right to categorize an entire family based on the "alleged" actions of a couple. NOW BE SPECIFIC in your POSTS!!!
WHAT IS YOUR NAME????? I have NEVER said anything about the FAMILY. I said the low life punks that thought they were bad when they hid and done their deeds......Do you know why they hide and sneak around to kill people and blow up homes and such? Its because they are chicken-shit-cowards because if they faced someone they would get their face shot off....
YOU are the one that is putting the Rigdons family name in the target. But I will tell you this, if you lie with dogs you will stink like dogs. Now shut up or tell us your real name so you can be the target of the community of honest people if you want to be supportive of the trash!!

Did you really just say that they take care of their families???!!! One of their wives is MISSING! Ripped away from her own family!!!!!! Yeah, u could say they pretty much "took care" of her! Moron! And lost 2 sons to the system???? Please!!! They are adults who did it to themselves!!!! And standing up for themselves doesn't involve a missing woman and shooting someone in the back of the head three times! What kind of idiot are you?? Nothing justifies their actions. There are laws that everyone must follow to be allowed amongst society. The Rigdons are no exception! Shooting someone in the back of the head makes me believe the person did not expect that and that their back was turned. Only a coward would do that. Makes me wonder what in the h$*# is wrong with you?!?!

You clearly state here that the boys are adults, so why is it that the blame is being put on their raising? I am by far a moron. There is absolutely no evidence or conviction that said they done anything to the ex-wife. Please, check your facts. Secondly, there is no current conviction on either of them shooting anybody. Check your facts on that one also. I believe in innocent until proven guilty. That is what the hell is wrong with me!

here we go again... first of all neither of their charges involve anything to do with kara, and second of all yes, they have both been taking care of their families. unless you are in their homes you wouldn't have any idea. they both have wives and kids and again they are two separate people living two separate lives and i think its pretty ignorant to say that because bobby's ex wife is missing they don't take care of their families. you speak of "their actions" as though you have some kind of insider information-why not speak up and put an end to this whole thing if you do? you can't because you are just like all the others who want to play the blame-game and point fingers based on nothing more than an opinion. if you have solved the case, share your info with the proper authorities and give both families some peace.

insider info?...hey "omg" i have first hand knowledge, seen with my eyes billy beating wendy, bobby smacking kara and heard too many stories of joey and vonda going at it like a couple of UFC champions fighting for a heavyweight belt.

i realize that this is marion co and in marion co that is how a man is supposed to treat a woman, so maybe i owe an apology for this but f--- that and f--- you. it may be considered the "norm" for this area but a "real" man doesn't hit.

if that qualifies someone as a murderer than i guess there are several in this town, since this seems to be the "norm" here, as you say.... furthermore kara and wendy are the ex-wives, they haven't been married to them for a few years.. what about the current wives? different people, different relationships. do you not change as you grow? you would be the exception if you don't. i do not condone any kind of spousal abuse (male or female) but i also don't condone passing judgement on someone without proper evidence. you don't know any better than anybody else what happened. you can assume, which is your right, but it is simply that- an assumption. one does not equal the other.

post 32 was meant in response to an earlier reference to the rigdon's (joey, billy, bobby) "taking care" of their families...

i do not have any info about kara, i wish i did. but as i said i have seen how the rigdons treat women WITH MY OWN EYES so don't tell me what knowledge i have. i am NOT one of these people who get on topix and start saying something that i don't know for a fact.

if i know it for a fact i'll say it as a fact.
if i'm not sure then i'll state that "i'm not 100%".
if i don't know at all then i won't say anything.

with one exception...everyone in central ky with half a brain will tell you that the rigdon's killed kara tingle. you could take a poll and the results would be overwhelming. innocent/guilty/proven/jury blah blah blah blah...

an international "yellow notice" is issued by interpol for missing persons. any computer system or peace officer in the world would set off alarms if a "blip" of her had shown up anywhere since she went missing. her name, DOB, SSN, bank account and everything about her has been "flagged" and NOTHING.

to those of you rigdonites out there?...where is she? if she's still alive how is she able to avoid detection for so long with no money? if she is not alive then who killed her? the caldwells? the mattinglys? the cowherds? maybe the hilpps?

I, like you and everyone else, do not know what has happened to Kara and I won't pretend to. I will not assume or accuse, I will wait until there is some concrete evidence in one direction or the other. I will ask you this question however, since nobody else has raised this point through these various threads about the Rigdons... why Kara? Joey, Billy, and Bobby have all been divorced in the past, some more than once. All have ex-wives, each of which has caused trouble for them in one way or another. They are all still very much alive and kicking, some even continuing to cause trouble for them. Why does it stand to reason that they would all gang up ( I assume this is your suggestion since you state that "the rigdons" have done something to kara) on kara, while leaving the others alone? They all have children, and have all gone through custody issues and nasty divorces. If this was the 'way of the rigdons' as you seem to think, why not do away with all of them?

you make an excellent point and i don't have a concrete answer but i'll tell you what i heard when all this first went down. i can't identify my sources because it would identify me...but i heard directly from 2 different people who are close to the rigdon family say that bobby and kara were involved in a custody dispute and bobby stated repeatedly that he would do anything not to lose the child.

once again, before everyone jumps all over me, this is only what i heard (from 2 reliable people) and i'm not stating this as a fact, just a possible theory. i've heard (with my own ears) billy and bobby both threaten to kill people for a whole lot less than losing a child.

I to don't have any information on Kara but if I did I would tell.Because I believe it would be one of the hardest things to not know where your child was.But sommeone does and isn't telling, WHY??? What if this was your daughter? How would you feel? I would feel angry if it was me.If anyone knows anything about her know matter how small or big please tell.The family and her children DESERVE TO KNOW THE TRUTH !
