Does anyone remember a young boy killed by three young boys ( about age 16 or 17) in 1963 or 1964? I cant remember a lot about it. Does any have any info about it. I think one of the killers first name was David & one was John I think.

The murdered kid's name was Gibbs. One of the killers was David Waters, the same guy who murdered Madeline Murray O'Hare, the Atheist.

No, I just remember it happened when I was a kid. I think it happened in Spring Bay or they were from Spring Bay. I think one of the other names was something like Pettigrew or something like that. That's all I remember.
