telling the true? truth? new castle has been a haven for drug users and sellers for many, many years. it was also one of the easiest places to get away with murder at one time. probably still is ( i haven't lived there for some time now but i doubt it has changed much).

Anyone remember a murderer in New Castle PA named Michael Atkinson? Or another guy, a friend of Atkinson, named Tanner? I think Tanner is in jail for rape and Atkinson is in jail for murder. Just wondered if anyone remembers anything about the crimes.

Yes I remember the Atkinson murder back in 1980. I was 10 years old. The family was my aunt and cousin. They blamed my uncle (husband and father to the deceased) which drove him out of New Castle.

That was I that posted the last comment under "Atkinson Murder". After reading my post, it may have come out wrong. They blamed my uncle which was wrong. I don't believe he did it. But that goes to show what New Castle is like. Why do you think the trial took place in Mahoning County in OHIO ! Hell, I would take a chance of venue myself cause of the corrupt judges in that town. And I noticed your post tee. I'm wondering if you're the same tee that is my cousin. I'm in the same boat as you, curious about certain things that I cant remember as a child.

Tee & Scott,
I am interested in Atkinson because I think he killed my step dad's daughter as well. Remember Melanie Gargasz, 4 year old murdered in 1975 about 2 years before Kadunce and about 3 miles away? I would like to talk to you guys about this. my email at home meachamms@bellsouth.net

New Castle is a dump and full of corrupt people, easily paid-off. No one in N.C. makes over 30K unless they are a criminal of sorts (or drive an hour to work). Do yourself a favor and stay clear of that town unless you enjoy living around crime/corruption. That whole PA/Ohio area is a dump. Draw a 200 mile radius, with Edinburg,PA at the center and stay the hell out of it. A mega-gambling and horse track is perfect for the shithole of New Castle. It will bring more corrupt people scamming everyone. Good for your New Castle, get more crime in that town.

Hey Damion,

Based on you grammar, I do believe you were born and raised (and educated) in New Castle. Your city must be proud of you.

i dont see why everyone puts down new castle. i have lived there 10 years, and its only bad if you associate yourself with bad people. every city has drugs, guns, crimes... if you think new castle is bad with drugs, why dont you go put down neshannock, union, shenago.. they have more drug users... get yourfacts straight

I think it is utterly ridiculous that because you once lived here, or know someone who does, you feel you can pass judgement on the entire population of New Castle.

Are you serious? I am a lifelong New Castle resident. I attended New Castle High School, a four year college (on a scholarship I might add), and EARNED a degree. In fact, I make over 30K a year and I am certainly not a criminal of sorts!! People like you are the reason New Castle gets a bad reputation. I'm so sorry if you couldn't make it here, but don't degrade the many residents that can and have! If you choose to make generalizations without background knowledge than that is your right, but you are making yourself look like an uneducated troublemaker!

Did you ever find what you needed? My mother and father lived relatively close to the Kadunce home and my mother seems to remember a lot of details and also much of the trial. I too, was a young child at the time. I was looking up murders in New Castle when I cam across this site. I am interested in any details anyone would like to post.
