where can we find monty bell
Money bell still lives In gilmer. I'm from gilmer, tx and Kelly Wilson's disappearance has dark spot on the towns reputation. Gilmer is just your average small town. Gilmer pd is surprisingly good. When all of my tools were stolen from my tool shed they found the culprit within the same week and managed to get ALL of the tools back. I am grateful to be from a safe small town.

No.
If they had, it would be HUGE news.
I guess you say that because they said it was a 'murder,' and technically it cannot be classified that until there is a body.
With all these long time kidnapping stories coming out in the news, I guess there is a chance she could still be alive.
At this point, it's kinda hard to believe that.
I am just surprised that none of her family or friends seem to bring her up. Her 20th anniversary came and went and there were only 2 stories in The Gilmer Mirror.
Not a single story made the TV news.
I mean, they show squirrels on skis, but not even 2 minutes on Kelly Wilson?
Her family or friends may have tried and got rejected by the news. I have no idea.
I think they would have gave them exposure if they tried though.

Does Monte Bell have a connection in the original investigation? I never saw his name in reading about the case?

On 9/18/08, James Jason Lade, was shot and killed at his car lot in Longview. Three years later, this case is still unsolved. We, like someone from a previous post, were told that TX rangers could not be brought in unless invited by Longview PD. So frustrating to see how much could be done, but isn't. Seeing everyone else's posts about lost love ones with no answers definitely dampens my hope. Still praying for answers. Does anyone here know anything about this?

My cousin was murdered in Upshur County. His murder was ruled a suicide and case closed. Police said he died from a self inflicted gunshot wound - using a rifle - that was laying beside him in the bed - with the covers pulled up over him.......really-?- But his soon to be ex-wife got a nice insurance settlement to share with her new boyfriend. Nice

She was my sister-in-law and it still remains an unsolved murder. The police stopped looking for clues years ago and the family has tried to move on.
Is this the same Carol Blanchard that was
living in Dallas? She was my best friend in highschool and I often wondered if they ever found out anything?

Very, very sad that I know this but just a wild guess, chad Bennett ?? I'm from harmony and know the whole bunch. Let me just say "wow really upshur co, y'all never thought maybe looking into the ones that picked him up from yazell Chevrolet where he worked that day and took him to la finca and to cash his pay check?? " I guess when daddy's a preacher you get away with murder for real??

Ok this is very very sad that I would know this without you posting a name but I am almost 100 percent positive that we are talking about Chad Bennett. Small little corrupt towns like gilmer. I am from harmony, and actually Chad was a friend of mine. They know who killed him, I don't understand why but for some reason this person escapes prosecution on everything he does. I know because he is my ex husband and has done terrible things to me. "OK UPSHUR COUNTY, LET ME SPELL IT OUT FOR YALL, CHAD WAS PICKED UP FROM WORK THAT DAY , HE HAD JUST GOTTEN HIS PAY CHECK, AND HIM AND A COUPLE OF GUYS ( I would not say friends), WENT TO EAT MEXICAN FOOD AND THATS THE LAST TIME HE WAS SAW ALIVE. IM NOT ROCKET SCIENTIST, BUT YALL ALREADY KNOW.. MAYBE THE PREACHERS SON KNOWS MORE THAN HE SHOULD FOR AN INNOCENT MAN AND BELIEVE ME, HE DEFINATLY IS CAPABLE.
THERE WAS A LITTLE HANKEY PANKEY GOING ON IN THAT LITTLE CIRCLE OF PPL BETWEEN TWO PEOPLE THAT WERE SUPPOSED TO BE IN COMMITTED RELATIONSHIPS, AND WHEN IT GOT LEAKED OUT BY SOME STRUNG OUT GIRL, tempers flared..

This story absolutely breaks my heart because Jason was a friend of mine and one of the sweetest souls you would ever wanna know. He just had a loving aurora about him. I think if I would have ever seen him be mean to anyone I would have had a stroke. Just all around GREAT GUY AND SUCH A SWEETHEART. I am praying and have been for 5 years that justice will be served in this case because believe me, the person I believe is responsible for taking such a wonderful part of so many ppls lives by taking Jason or at the very least having it done, deserves to have someone kill him in the cowardly way that he either killed or had Jason killed. I hope DNA will provide the Rusk Co Sheriffs Office with the proof that they need to prosecute the man that they have known all along was responsible for this.

Jason was a dear friend to me as well. I was told he was picked up by a "friend" (a white guy)and taken to the Mobile home where he was then shot 5 times by 3 men. 2 blacks and one other white guy. I am not including race in this for any reason other than to point out that people KNOW without a doubt who these scum bags are. Names are known. I was told the Texas Rangers were just dotting their I's and crossing their T's because this was going to be a death penalty case. So much time has elapsed now I don't think anyone is doing jack sh×t because they just don't give a flying fu×k. Now reading all these other crimes going "unsolved" something is rotten in east texas.

Well yes of course they know what happened, if they can find a body after years and years and figure out what happened to the person, who they are, how they lived, and the circumstances of thier disappearance and death then this case would be a cake walk... I know for sure the white guy you are speaking of because I saw him the day before Jason disappeared and the guy told me at a party and these are his exact words "the next time you see your buddy Jason Vickers to tell him the next I see him I'm gonna f*cking kill him." Those words are burnt into my brain forever...there were several people there that heard him say that. I have spoke to Rusk County when it happened but I guess that's not enough. They know.. I'm sure they eat thier vegetables too.&#128521; you know what I'm getting at.

Sorry all them symbols. It was supposed to be a winkey face, but instead it put all those symbols.. Anyway I'm not sure about the black guys though. But I'm sure it was some of the connections the killer had.. It just makes me sick to think of them doing that to my friend. Anyway to finish my story..... After I talked to rusk county I guess word got out and I got a visitor at work.. Yep u guessed it. I wasn't really threatened , he just acted like it was funny that I talked to the police and said he shouldn't h have messed with me. This guy makes me sick and I am still tramatized by him and his actions.. I hope they put him away forever.. He has the coldest emptiest eyes you'll ever see..

That's extremely frightening. I hope you let the authorities know about this. I type Jason's name in to goggle all the time just to see if anything is going on with the case and nothing. It is heartbreaking every time too. What was the motive? I'll tell you what I was told but would first like to hear what you heard since you spoke to this guy the night before as you said. I have one other question though, someone posted on here that he was tortured, please tell me that isn't true. Is it? I mean, I know being shot 5 times, if that is accurate, is hell but I truly hope at least it was quick for him. I'll always love Jason, he'll forever hold a special place in my heart. He was a good person, and a good and loving father. By the way this is coming up under a different name because it's a difference device, I don't know, but this is "sickened"

Yes I spoke to rusk county shortly after Jason passed, they took a video statement from me. I guess that wasn't enough for them to get a conviction. At this point in my life I wasn't really living like I should have been. I was on drugs pretty bad and working at a strip club, so I think maybe they questioned my character and thought a jury would as well. What is messed up about it is that I've been clean for 5 years and my story is still the same. See when all this happened, it changed me and my life so much. I rocked on for a couple of months after Jason died, still doing the drugs and dancing at the club but I hated that whole lifestyle and the people who were part of it because the white guy that killed Jason was majorly a part of that world, and he had introduced Jason to it as well..I'll have to write this in intervals so you'll have to bear with me.

I'm really glad that you got things straightened out. That is a fast and short road. You didn't hear anything about him being tortured did you? I was told this all involved a girl. It really had sounded like a drug deal gone wrong but I was told that he was actually clean and had got his life back on track and he was found to be totally clean. Is this true was it over some girl? I hate thinking that this wasn't quick and over before he knew what was going down. That probably is not the case though. Something g needs to be done. These people will do it again. I have the feeling this was not their first murder and I KNOW it won't be their last. This has gone unsolved for so many years I'm sure these mother f÷ckers think they are untouchable. The best we can hope for is that people like this rarely keep it to themselves. Someone will surely start bragging or just talking about it. These cops need to find the weak link and go to town on them. I just don't think they want to make an effort.
