If you ask your parents, they will all tell you it was a very weird and hush case for the most part. The girl was buried in South Dakota, i think that was where the family was originally from.

This doctor was in med school at the time. His parents lived on the same street as Richard Greenwell and Greenwell's family at least from 1960-1978. Looking up the addresses for both the doctor's family and Greenwell's family (at that time) on Google Maps, it appears that both houses have been torn down to build the parking lot for Owensboro High School (or the expansion of the school). The lived next door to, or very close to each other. Of course, that doesn't mean anything.

This was the elder Dr. S who lived on the same street as the Greenwells. The younger Dr. S was in med school at the time. I realize I didn't make that clear.

I can see why there was a problem solving the case. I have heard the name of 1 additional local surgeon reported to be involved that has not been mentioned yet. And I'm too scared to say his name. If I feel like this, anonymously and this many years later, I can imagine how scared anyone else would be to testify at the time.

I had never heard there was another thought to have been involved. Very interesting. And believe me I understand that you are reluctant to name names. I felt the same way as you. If infact these guys were involved in what happened. I can't imagine living with the guilt but I would bet they have put the guilt way behind them and feel they got away with it all scott free. And sure looks like they have to me. If there is truth to the rumors. There is no way that a case would ever be reopened.....

Richard Greenwell's old house was torn down. The space was to be used as part of the expansion for Owensboro High School or for more parking for the school.

It's called having money. Dr Taylor couldn't live with the guilt anymore, and that is way he killed himself. I would hate to have to live knowing I helped take someone's life. And I'm guessing the other person was J.B

It's also scary. If these drs really Did do it then some of us may be at some point putting our lives in the hands of murderers. Some surgeons iin our little town are murdereres. That's horrible. And their patients don't even know. The only place I've ever heard this is here. First time was a few years ago.

And they've never denied it. I'm sure them or someone they know has seen the posts yet no denials.

I don't think it was torn down. I recently went by there, since OHS renovated. The address matched the ones in old records. There is a no trespassing sign in the front yard. Maybe due to HS kids. Two story brick and It looks creepy.

To courious. No they were not ever charged. I assume they were questioned at least. There was only 1 charged and convicted. The Greenwell boy.

Nothing creepy about the old Greenwell
House. There is a very sweet older couple living there and the wIfe is fighting cancer. I think they just don't need any additional aggravation right now.
