Can anyone tell me anything about a death that may have occurred in the 80's?. A young man by the name of 'Gary', possibly stabbed. He was in his early 20's, attended GCT. Just trying to find any truth to what I was told.

Also would like any information on the Cranfield case (i.e. year, victims, offender, etc.). Have seen the house. Odd that the descendants chose to leave the house and surround it by fencing, rather than to tear it down and move on.

Interested in any criminally related deaths in the area 20 years or older. Any help or new topix would be appreciated.

The road dead ends at the fence surrounding the house. It is a road to the left off of 49 south. I don't remember the name of it. The house is boarded up and surrounded by a chain link fence. I had seen this posted on here before and thought that house and the Cranfield story were related. I may be wrong.
My interest is more in the story than the house. Murder mystries, local history, I just find these things interesting and enjoy researching them. Don't really want to go and see the places.

Idk if i'm familiar with the Cranfield case, but I will do some homework on it! I am also interested in murder mystories, especially ones in our community! Have you read the thread about the Dr Jones double murder, another thread on here is about a murder back in 90 or 92, Mitchell I believe is the name of the convicted murderer.

Judy Evans. I have no idea if Anthony is related to Ray at all, the subject has never come up. Probably not.
Ray hung around with Dewey and Peachy Weaver and some guy whose last name was Beasley. Can't remember his first name.

We find no merit in appellant's fifth point. There was no objection to Latham's testimony that he was present when the appellant drew a ring off decedent's finger and when appellant subsequently wrapped the ring in masking tape and buried it at the end of a bridge near Corning. Appellant concedes that a picture of Latham, offered in evidence and depicting him showing C. I. D. men where the ring was buried, was not objectionable because its reception would have been harmless, absent the testimony to which the appellant does object. Latham's testimony to which appellant objects appears as follows:

"Q. Where did Ray Glover wrap the ring up in that?

A. At his body shop.

Q. What did he do with the little package?

A. Put it in his pocket.

Q. Did you ever see it again after that?

A. I don't recall seeing it again.

Q. Did you see what Ray did with it?

A. I saw him bury it at the bridge up this side of Corning.

Q. I show you here a picture, ask you to examine it?

A. Picture taken of me up at the bridge this side of Corning where I was showing the C. I. D. men where the ring was buried.

Q. Was the ring recovered there?[248 Ark Page 1273]

A. Yes. It was.

Mr. Pearson: Offer it in evidence.

Mr. Howard: I object. Extrajudicial statements made by one of the conspirators after confirmation of the conspiracy, improper.

THE COURT: Objection overruled.

Mr. Howard: Exception.

Judy Evans was from Alexander Community. She was my wife's cousin.
Clyde Ray Glvoer is deceased - believe he died
of cancer - not sure if they released him from prison a short time before his death or not.

Also , Carlos (Pete) Stallcup, a count employee
mowing right of way on county road near 'Big Rock'
in Beech Grove community was shot off the tractor
by what was believed to be a land owner mad over
small trees being mowed down on his property that
was on the right of way.
Unsolved cold case - suspect in case is now deceased. Sam Poe was the CID at the time.
I believe this was during the 80's. James Danley was sheriff at the time.

Actually I had to go to Cummins and bring Ray Glover back to Greene County back in 1973 as he'd filed a motion in Greene County Courts for a retrial. He didn't get a retrial and was returned to prison. He died in prison sometime after that.

what about the old Phil Harper case in the house behind the store on the right as you turn left on 139 going towards Mounds? Happened in August 1973. It was ruled a suicide, but there ain't no way. He had TWO bullet holes in his head.
