Anyone remember a guy getting ran over on the side of 23 up past hilltop market? I guess it was more than 5 years ago and I don't remember his name or any details. He was walking on the side of the highway and someone hit him and didn't stop. Did they ever find out who did it?

His name was Cecil "Junebug" Hall. He was hit by a car, then ran over by two more. The woman who hit him(from another state) finally came forward. She said she thought she had hit a deer.

The guy they hit was jumping out in front of cars like a deer, he jumped in front of me & I almost hit him. I remember it was raining & the guy had a big dark coat on. They just had bad luck.
If it was raining why were they arrested at the car wash, washing the blood off the truck?

I never did believe my mom about a girl at Paintsville lake, I don't know what happened, so i'm not going to say murdered or drowned. Everytime I go to the lake she tells me to "be careful" and recalls the story. I actually went camping there once and asked the "Night Watchers" or "Security Guards" about it, and they said they never heard anything. But, that's probably something they don't talk about. As I've read the posts, I think this case needs to be opened again for further investigation. I was True TV A LOT! Someone out there knows what happened. God Bless the family and friends of April.
this case is going to be reopened- new investagaters taking over.

???? This makes no sense at all. They think there were drug users involved because she had no drugs in her system?????? How could they come to that conclusion? You need to think before you write you have contridicted yourself several times in this short passage.

Perhaps you should get YOUR facts straight!! JS was no where near when April died! He was 15 to 20 miles away. I know as well as about 30 others who were witnesses as to where he was (his alibis). He was NOT her boyfriend.
April was with a 20+ year old "man" who also drowned with her. As for DS.. who knows where she was. But, what it all boils down to is the kid drowned as well as the man she was with she was 15 years old. Why would her mother let her go to the lake with a man who was over 20? Not a very good choice on the mother's part.
Everyone hates the fact that she died so young, but her mother needs to quit placing blame on people who were not even in the area. If it was a murder, then the kids that were with her when she died should be the one's suspected. AND there were 2 people to drown that night I'm sure if there was evidence of foul play the her death would not have been ruled a drowning by the detectives.
well the 2cd autopsy showed foulplay. no water in the lungs' case re opened new investagaters involved arrest will be made hopefully in the middle of thanksgiving dinner.

I have not taken time to read all the posts on here. But I mentioned earlier what about Jimmy Meade. We went to grade/high school. He got mixed in with rough crew early on. And rumor always had it that Timmy Mormon had something to do w/ his death. The last time I ever saw him (Jimmy)was in front of JCHS ans he was singing "Stairway to Heaven" at the top of his lungs. From the time he died till now I can't help but think about all the things he has missed out on. Marriage, kids, just simple little things. We were never close but I would never wish anything bad on a person-whether we run in the same circles or not. RIP Jimmy-I hope you got to climb those stairs to heaven.

someone who knows wrote:
Let me tell you all there was no way April and Timmy drowned. One Timmy could not even swim, and would not even get into the carriage house pool in the 4 ft section the night before. Also how could they both drown trying to save each other when April was found in 4 ft of water close to the bank and Timmy was found 45 ft around the cove out in 10 ft of water. The reports stats the water was calm that night so therefore there is no possible way they drowned together. Also you can't float upstream. April and Timmy had numorous bruises on their bodies. April had her earring jerked out of her ear which left a chunk of meat torn off. And besides one of the girls who was there said she could not see Aprils face for the bag over her head. There are alot more details on describing her injuries but, at this time can be released due to ongoing investigation. God help those of you who don't know what your talking about, and Thanks to the ones who support the family...
April did not have no bag over her head, where are you getting your info from, first of all timmy did swim with all of them that night,and April got drunk and fell down the rocks three or four times that would explain her injures,the other kids left them alone because they thought they were going to fool around but after a while they went back to get them and found april floating in the water one of the boys tried to give her cpr but it failed so they took her to the hospital while that same boy stayed there and tried to find Timmy but he could not find him.i could go on and on with this story but i'm not going to it brings back a lot of bad memories.but one other thing timmy body was found right under where they found april
body,so i know more than any of you know.
