I remember...something about the doctor had hired someone to kill his wife. There was also a set of elderly women killed in Jonesboro within a week of the Jones murder. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought the person who said he killed the elderly women also confessed to killing the Jones couple. He was supposed to be a drifter. I always thought something was fishy about it because the doctor was planning to have his wife killed and then they are killed be a drifter? Please let me know if I have my facts messed up!

Don Edwards, Carolyn Edwards, and Sharon Edwards(no relation) were arrested for the murder of the Jones's. I really don't believe they did it because none of them were smart enough to plan such a hideous deed nor were they ruthless enough. However, you never know what money can and will do to a person so ....

Yes, all I believe. The two women are both out I think but I heard the man died in prison. Not sure about the death being in prison, but pretty sure he died either way.

I thought the Jonses were killed by Leroy Bullock. He is the one who murdered Sybil Cooksey and Ruth Neisenbaum in Jonesboro. I may be wrong though.

I'm sorry you're offended, but this is a public forum where people may discuss public events even if it's about death or whatever. I don't see that it's any different than people talking about things in a baber shop, at work, or anywhere else.
Hopefully, you don't feel the need to restrain people there from chatting about local news events -new or old.
And why go to Frank Nash - he doesn't have anything to say.

I forgot about the Bullock guy. I don't know what happened to him or what his connection was. I just know that the 3 Edwards all went to the big house for having a part in it. Like I said earlier, smarts wasn't any of those 3's biggest assetts, but crazy was a big possibility.

I agree...this is a public forum and this was a very public story at the time. Every topic that is brought up in here is going to offend someone. You can't please everyone, but at least this topic is not bashing someone like so much of the rest on here.

Dr. Jones was having an affair with one of the Edwards women. He had offered them money to kill his wife. But before that could happen, the other man, whose brother was Mrs. Jones' hairdresser, came to the house. (Apparently, Mrs. Jones liked to brag to her hairdresser about how much money they had, her jewelry, etc.) So the brother went to rob the Jones' and killed them. He killed Dr. Jones first (upstairs), then went downstairs to kill Mrs. Jones. The Edwards trio were found guilty of conspiracy to commit murder, because their plan was discovered after the murders. And yes, he is the same one involved in the Cooksey-Nisenbaum murders in J'boro.

I looked on the ADC website, and neither of them are still in prison.

That is correct only Mrs. Jones was killed first. Dr. jones came home unexpected and was killed by the front door. This was in 1989. I lived next door with my grandma in the now sleep disorder place.
