in the slate hill road area off 25-E . The house is no longer there. I think he had her knee caps in his pockets when he was arrested. His mother turned him in.

Donald Massey was his name, he used to have it published in the paper for his wife to come home. I can't remember her name but I am thinking Sheila was her name, he was caught when his mother turned him in for killing Richard Carpenter I think that was his name, he cut him up with an electric knife and put him in the cistern.

Donald Ferguson, wifes name was Sherry, Richard Carpenter was man he killed. Happened on Rocky Summitt Rd In Bean Station. Donald was always a sick and twisted man and Richard always felt sorry for him. Yes he put his body parts in cistern after decappitating him and sawing off other parts of his body, he wore a necklace with a piece of sherry's skull around his neck and has pieces of her bones hanging on his wall. His mother did call police on him but my question has always been why didnt she call the several years before when he put parts of his wife in that same cistern?? I was there the day they pulled Richards remains out of the cistern. You may can pull this story up by putting the murderers name in im not sure. May he rot in the pits of hell for what he done to my friend and this woman!

You are right about the names, she was my aunt. The reason his mom did not go to the police was because she was afraid of him. He had already beat her so much that they had to amputate her arm.

I remember seeing her walking on the road with just one arm. The carpenter man might have been a relative of mine. My grandfathers name was Carpenter and from the mooresburg area.
