I'm from Sardis which is about 16 miles east of Millen, GA. I remember seeing Suggs in Sardis a time or two back in '64 or '65. I think the murder took place at or near the Blue Springs dance hall near Sylvania, GA around the mid sixties. I remember something about him forcing his younger brother to help him dispose of the body. I'm ashamed to say his grandmother was the sister of my grandmother. I didn't know him but she was a nice person. They lived in Millen. Maybe you could contact the county newspapers in Millen and Sylvania to check their archives to get more info.
I am looking for information on my mom Patricia Ann Brinson Dawson who allegedly commited suicide bck in 1968 in Millen,GA this happened when I was about 18 months old, my family who raised me never told me anything about my mom, I am 45 yrs old and still have no answers. My mom was 17 yrs. old when she came up missing and later found in a creek ?

Do you remember a lady going missing on her way home from work? It happened in the Memphis area. I think her last name was Butler. They found her car cranked with the lights on, the doors open, and her purse on the seat.

That is the same one that I was asking about in post # 104 above. I thought her car was found around midnight on Brunswick Road or somewhere in that area

I had a very strange experience in regard to this, and need to talk to someone.

was the teresa butler missing person (1980's) case ever solved. she was on her way home from work around 11 pm. her car was found with door open on a hwy in east shelby county.
I had a strange experience ( a vision of sorts) which sounds really
weird, and it I literally have not been able to get it out of my mind, since it happened.I was afraid to say anything to anyone about it at the time, because I thought I would seem like a nutcase. Nothing like that had never happened to me before, and I did not know what to do. I would like to talk to someone about it.

Why are you asking about this?

Deborah Groseclose(sp?) wasn't dead when her husband and an accomplice put her in the trunk. The two men had attacked her at home, but she was very much alive and died from the heat.

hesitant,
I was asking about the Butler disappearance because I never heard it was solved or that anyone was a suspect.

I think the Butler lady's name was Theresa and I don't think they ever solved it. That's why I was asking -- to find out if there was any resolution to the case.

Also, to "hesitant" -- do you want to talk to one of us or to someone official? I doubt if one of us could help, unless you just need someone to listen.

Did Theresa Butler have a family member, brother maybe, named Steve?

@Happybooker98, there is a woman that is named the same that is missing now. She is 35 and her husband is Steve.
I was wondering if the one missing since '86 had a brother named Steve. I remember my mother speaking of a friend that had a sister missing. He was Steve Butler.

This is sickening.These kind of crimes happen all over black cities and most of the time nothing, if little is done about it.It is almost like an all out war is going on in our front yards.While the media tries to play things down,blacks are robbing,raping,and murdering at an alarming rate.This is not a racist statement,it is a FACT!!!
You are simple minded. How old are you?

<quoted text>if you study history, most black lynchings were the result of actual crimes the black committed in those days. true if they did not receive a trial, they should have. you did not have cases(or very few) where whites would for no reason unprovoked assault,rape amd or murder blacks. go to new nation.org and you will the horrific black on white crimes being carried out today. in the old days blacks did committ crimes and sometimes against whites,but it was rare and now,oh so brutal and certainly hate crimes. the liberal media of course hides these trying to deceive the public.
You are confused. You should read true history and not make up your own.

Interesting board. I am trying to find out any information regarding a double homicide, husband/wife, at the Mineral Wells Motel in Olive Branch, MS. Possibly shot in the head, in the Motels' office. I am not sure the time frame, other than it was quite a while ago, possibly in the 70's.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
