It was a paid plan. Dr. Jones did something to a well know man from the boothill of missouri, which made him sexually disfuntional. So the man got even with him, hear say Dr, Jones male organ was cut off and shoved in his mouth.

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.

I don't know if I believe that or not... I remember that after it all got figured out what happened, the paragould cable people made a short tv documentary of the events leading to the murders and the murderers... it was Dr. Jones who paid for the hit, irony is that he paid for his own as well.

That is interesting. A few months ago I asked my husband if he remembered when the Dr and his wife were murdered. For some reason I remembered hearing about it(was only 10 when it happened), but never knew if they caught who did it. I wondered what had happened, but I couldn't remember exactly when it happened.

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!
The original story was that a drifter, Bullock, killed them. He was also supposed to have killed the women in Jonesboro. The part that was left out in everybody's story was:

They arrested two men on Pruett Street. They had been to C&M Jewelers(yes, it's not there anymore),and they said they weren't buying jewelry anymore, then went to Higgin's Jewelers. They had the ring that Higgin's had custom made for Sharon. He recognized it right away. He called the PPD and they shut Pruett Street down. After questioning, the two men had come to Paragould from Las Vegas. They said they won the ring in a card game. The biggest question is why would two men wanting to sell a ring, wait until they got to the small town of Paragould to try to sell it. It, also might have been circumstatial, that they were slain not long after Jimmy Duke was arrested. The two might not have any connections, but they might have. There were a string of assualts, against people that might have had any connections to that ring.

Now with Jimmy Duke you are getting on the right track.

I know more than I care to share on here, but you are exactly right. It was very coincidental the exact area of the body were they were shot, what was stolen, the fact that the stolen property made it back to town, and the timing of other happenings in the area.

It was G.I. Higgins not Bruce that was murdered. I don't know if there was any connection or anything about any of the murders, just know that Bruce is still very much alive.

What was Dr. Jones and his wife's first names? I've been trying to remember for years. I tried to do a search on google to pull up anything, but didn't get anything. Just interested, that's all.
