Nicky killed his grandmother himself. He beat her with a clawhammer, then threw her body in the nolichucky river.
He then went to the food city which was then located at crescent center and rented a steam cleaner to clean the carpet,using his id to secure the rental.
on christmas day nicky was at a relatives house , waiting on his grandmother who was late when one of the people joking said look shes here and nicky wigged out!
all of this came out in his trial.
sad to say but I knew nicky ,went to school with him and followed this very closely and remember it well.
he deserves to be killed himself but in a slow and painful way.
hes the lowest of life forms, and like many people on here have described him, a very creepy person even when he was a little boy.T
That's interesting. I was only 3-years-old when this happened, so I don't really remember that much of it. But the relatives house that you mention is my parent's house in Knoxville. That was probably my Dad that was joking. Dorothy was my mother's mother. Nicky was my mother's newphew.

He killed the child molestor in prison and was sentenced to death.
Attempted Appeal record shows that other imates say it was because he was sold some bad Marijuana from the murder victom and unrelated to the child molestation conviction.
Also it seems no one wanted to mention the name of the road and house where Dorothy Sutton was killed so I will keep it quiet too, but my wife's family lived just down the road and my great grandparents had owned the farm at the end of the road. My mother spent many nights in the house when it was owned by another family. She said it was a beutiful house inside, but shutters to imagine it as described in the police reports. Last time I drove by, it was still there.

Would you be able to email me the address of the house? Dorothy Sutton was my grandmother, and I'm collecting some information on the case.

My mother was dating David Cloar just before he murdered his father and step mother. Prior to this, he always seemed to be a nice man. I remember him being funny and very athletic. A few weeks before he committed these horrific crimes he became extremely withdrawn and did not speak to my mother at all. She assumed that he was upset with her over something. He lived in an apartment in Knoxville and we lived in Sevierville. I remember hearing about this on the news and we were all shocked and thankful that he chose to withdraw from us. We felt very lucky. Once my mother had contact with him he asked her to clean out his apartment and of course she took me with her. Wow is all I can say. The smell was terrible from all of the blood in the bathroom where he circumcised himself. At that point the police thought that he had killed someone else due to the amount of blood. This was an eye opener for me and something that I will never forget. I still get chills when I think about it 20 years later.

I was not friends with Nicky Sutton but my sister and brother were. I am quite a bit younger than they are and I remember one time Nicky was sitting beside me in our den and I asked him if he would ever hurt my Dad. I knew nothing about him at that time but I had this weird feeling about him and I was like in 4th grade. I remember when I heard that he killed his grandmother in 5th grade and thinking how cruel could someone be for doing that. Years later I learned that he tortured animals. I wonder why someone can do this and why. Did something happen to Nicky to make him this way or was he just born evil?

Reading other peoples comments about going to school with Nicky and hurting animals and staring at people to scare them says to me that he was born evil. I hope he is dead and burning in hell.

I have sat here and read all these comments and believe me, it has jarred the hell out of my memory but there are a lot of things people on here are right about, some dates and ages and some other things are just off. Hey, that was 30 years ago and we all have went on with our lives and time does have a way of messin with our memory.
I will say this, I knew Nicky too, and that is nothing to brag about. He was evil, weird, he was all about trouble. Nicky was a very sick minded individual. I knew him in school at East Ridge since he was 12 and by the time he left there in the 8th grade, he burned a cat up in a microwave, and took its liter and buried the bodies leaving their heads above ground in a line and mowed over them with a lawnmower. While on the school trip to six-flags he knocked out a man there and robbed him of $400.00 He had did all this by the time he was 14.
Nicky never attended the Old Junior High, he went all 3 years at East Ridge. He didn't hit his grandmother over the head with a clawhammer, it was a lead paperweight. He didn't shave a number on the top of his head in the 8th grade, he shaved the top of his head the shape of a triangle the same time Rocky Foster shaved his head and Adam Hill got a mohawk. I believe this fly on the wall is someone who went to school with Nicky and is just on here making arguments like those in chatrooms do. Trying to stir up worthless drama. I agree with Little Sister, there will not be no movie made about Nicky, the devil is too busy. His highest rise to fame is when the case was in True Crime magizine. That is as old as Nicky has been locked up.

Was there an actual article in TRUE CRIME magazine? If so, do you have any information on the issue? Thanks!

Fairly certain that the number is 4.
- John Large
- Charles Almon
- Dorothy Sutton
- Brushy Mt. Prison Inmate (I'll have to look up his name in my newspaper clippings).

My family stills has the house at Mt Sterling where he was staying when he committed at least one of these murders. From the back deck, you can see the tobacco barn where he murdered John Large. I used to play in that barn all the time as a child (after the murders had happened), and never even knew of the gruesome things that took place there. I also just saw a DVD of of some home movies that my father filmed back in the 1960's and 1970's. There is footage of Nicky in those films, and of my grandmother with him in the living room of the house in Morristown that he murdered her in. Weird, wild stuff.

I went to school with John, too, and he was a nice guy, and a little shy. I remember he would hold doors open for us girls, and I never heard him utter a disrespectful comment to teachers, or students. And I agree with others that he was super smart. I was shocked when I heard of his tragic death, although I was not shocked about Nicky Sutton committing murder. I remember John, fondly. He helped me with my math assignments and did not have to. I wouldn't have passed that class if he hadn't took the time to help me. And, because of his help, I ended up with a B, and I was tickled pink!
