I remember 1975 too, there were no prostitutes walking the streets of Pennington Gap. They all were walking the halls of PHS! Now their daughters walk the streets!

There were a lot of murders in Lee Co. in the mid 70's. There was the guy who got shot in the VFW. The guy who was shot near the Powell River while fishing. The people killed by the Stevens brothers. There was violence all over Lee County. Several rapes from home intruders from Rose Hill and Woodway, not sure who that was or what happened to the perp.

I know the one who killed the guy in the VFW got no time because they deemed it self defense. Then there was the murder of the Harlan deputy in the Cold Spring Market and the murder of the guy who did that two days later. No charges filed on those who killed that Stevens boy because cops said he was a wanted killer. The evidence proved the police shot him in the back and nothing was done.
The argument started at the VFW and the man went home and was followed and was gunned down in front of his wife at his own home and nothing was done about it. Get your story straight.

If you are talking about the Kempton man, he was shot in the VFW and hit by four .38 caliber bullets. According to reports he entered the VFW in Skaggs Hill and he was told it was past closing and he'd have to leave. They (the witnesses) claim he pulled a .45 automatic and cocked it. He threatened three people and the post commander last name Johnson fired four shots and was later charged with murder but released under bond. Later all charges were dropped. Is this the one who you thing was followed home? Please do tell, because the reports tell a different, more detailed story.

No, I am talking about the one Clement followed home and murdered in the man's own home.

You could be discussing the Kegley murder or the Suggs murder and maybe even the rape of a minor girl that Clement was accused of.
