The Kathy Jones murder happened in 1965, NOT 1969. I was her age and I was in 3rd grade. My sister was in 5th grade.

A man had boldly followed us on 2 separate occasions and had parked and watched us walk home from school for atleast a week prior to making his move. We came close to be abducted by him 2 times in the same day.

not long after, Kathy was abducted and found murdered.

We ended up with the authorities placing police cars on every block of our walk home and detectives coming to the school and taking us out of class for questioning multiple times.

This case always haunted us. We felt we had possibly come face to face with her murderer?
We lived in the same neighborhood area.

sweety you need to go recheck your history on this one. i know kathy was found dead in 69. that was the year i went to live with my grandparents. after they found her body i found out for the first time in my young life what danger really was. it was the other girl green something that was murdered in 65. go do some research. kathy jones was murdered in 1969.

it's been a long time. I did do some google stuff and did find a piece that also said 1965. So there are 2 dates out there.
Either way, God Bless her family. I hope they solve this for them. This was a terror to all of us in Nashville during that period.

I know for a fact she died in 69 google it search it, how about you go to spring hill cemetery and look at her tombstone She is (would have been) my aunt but sadly died this has torn my family apart and also made them afraid and still to this day is talked about in my family and to some was told " not to talk about it because it was to dangerous to talk about" please take time to focus on the facts not what you think google says

You are right teresaMMM....I was Kathy's age in 1969....the year she was murdered. It too frightened me and was the first real tragedy that scared me into never again walking alone by myself. No doubt in my mind it was 1969. I'll never forget it.

My aunt was a good friend of Kathy's! I grew up hearing this horrible story!! It still bothers my family today and the fact that her killer was never caught! My aunt's name is Sherry and she lived on Hutton drive at the time of this terrible crime. I have always been told that my grandfather had offered her a ride because he was already taken my aunt and my mom skating. Oh how I wish she would have rode with them instead of walking! My aunt still cries every time she speaks of this! She always says "She was my Best Friend!" Kathy and her family will always be in our in our thoughts and prayers and may her killer be brought to justice!!!

I was ten years old when Kathy was murdered. Today, at 53, I still think of her whenever I pass the Krispy Kreme. I went to school at St.Edward's which was not even a mile from where Kathy was found and I recall how terrified we all were. We lost our innocence when Kathy lost her life and I think of her often. God Bless her little soul!

I'm Kathy Jones's cousin.

It was definitely 1969. She disappeared 11/29/69.

I wonder if anyone knows if she ever made it to the roller skating rink?

Did she make it to the Krispy Kreme?

I know she was trying to go to those two places, but I am not sure if she ever got there.

If anyone has any memories about Kathy, I would love to hear them.

thank you.
