If anyone out there knows what happened, would you, please, tell me? Thanks.

The case involved minors. That would explain why you can not find it. I was a 7th grader at Fruita Junior High School when it happened. In addition, I know all of the kids involved. People involved have paid their debts... and continue to pay.

I knew Darrell's nieces, Patty and her ex Gary; Penny and Penny's husband Joe; and his nephew Ronnie (none of which have the last name of Miracle since they were the children of Darrell's sister).

it was very brutal ,everyone involved should have got the death penalty , it was reinstated in 1984, instead one got away with being a juvenile and the other got tried as an adult. how's that for justice.

The man was giving his daughter which is my cousin a bad time for many days and uncle Darrell shot him. Uncle Darrell died last week of the flu and will be buried on Monday the 2nd of November in Grand Junction Co.

I knew Kenney, the man who was murdered for 40 years.He could not stand and walk without support. Had he shoved your uncle he would have fallen over.Your uncle killed an unarmed invalid in his own home over a percieved slight. Darrell should have been charged with first degree murder.Your cousin and her boyfriend should be locked up for solisiting murder.My sorrow is for Ken's two young children. Not for the scum you are lying to defend.

Merle South killed both of his parents. The post/question appears to imply that there were multiple involved. If I recall correctly, he acted alone.
The story was that he got into a fight with his father and went to his room and locked his door. While his father was pounding on his door (possibly trying to break it down), Merle began shooting through the door. Apparently, his was unaware that his mother was standing in the hallway as well. Both parents suffered gun shot wounds and died.
I believe Merle was a juvenile at the time but was charged as an adult. I also seem to recall that he agreed to a plea where he pled guilty to two counts of second degree murder. He was sentenced to 12 years incarceration for each count and the two 12 year sentences were to be served concurrently.
