Any arrests made? I live in Buchanan Co in Virginia, which neighbors Pike Co. and it scares the bejeesus out of me all the killings that have happened in Pike and Buchanan Counties over the last couple decades. There are murderers walking free among us and it scares me. I lock my doors and don't trust anybody anymore!
what a bout the case back in grundy a good many years ago of roger keith coleman who went to the electric chair for killing his sistr in law, but he didnt do it, and the cops in grundy set him up, they messed with the evidence cuz her daddy in law was a deputy and that man who lived next to her confessed to killing her, and yet roger coleman went to the electric chair and he didnt even do it....years later after he had been dead awhile the outgoing gov of virginia ordered new dna testing, and they said rogers dna was present, but, i believe it had been contaminated years ago by the buchanon sheriff office and the state of va, didnt want to have to admit they had killed an innocent man

Does anyone remember an older man that was killed while walking up Dorton Hill in the late 60s or early 70s? He had a single gun shot to his head. He had just cashed a government check and his money was missing when he was found. I think his last name was Rose. I remember his son went away to police academy with a promise to use his education to find his dad's killer. Does anyone know who the man was and if his killer was ever found? I remember Walker Rose who lived close by the spot where the man was killed. Was it him?
I've been away for about 40 years and the story I heard about this murder still bothers me.

mindy mae good was found dead up under a pool table 3yrs ago at some ppl house on card mountain at moutcard ky no one was ever charged 27 yrs old and left 2 children one month later her father died trying to find out what happened to her he was suppose to went in the river in his truck and got killed dont think so he was forced into the river at least that what most of the family thinks but was ruled accident this happened at at moutcard
I heard she was actually killed (not sure by whom) on top of Buckeye Mt. and then moved there to make it look like an accident like she was trying to break in and the pool table that took 4 grown men to carry accidentally fell on her. Later they said she was caught wearing a wire, but if that were true the KSP would know what happened...they would have been listening to it all. Fishy story. She was a friend of mine, and I'd like to know the true story too. Chances are it will never be told. What I said was just rumors that were flying around the time of her death. I don't even remember who told it. That's just the way this area is tho.

My family is from georgia, but my husband, son ,and daughter-in-law were in Pikeville and on Jan,7, 2007 my son vanished. He was found in the big sandy. They ruled out drowning and my husband all but confessed and the young woman with him said he killed my son. But they were to afraid of losing the case they let him walk away. My son left 3 children behind and a family that is having a rewally hard time dealing with this. aaMy son was a good soul and he at least deserved justice, but he'll nver get it.
i dont know if this person is really related to the young man or not, but i remember this case and i have often wondered if this case wasnt related to the smiley face murders....there have been so many young men found face down in a river, or stream and have been ruled accidental drowning, but once forensics got involved they always found a picture of a smiley face drawn on a nearby tree or post of some kind....there were some in ohio and they said they believe the killer was a traveler of some kind, a truck driver, remember the smiley face killer out in the seattle area, he is dead now but he was a truck driver, maybe this guy is trying to be a copy cat or something....i remember when that young man died down there in pikeville

i remember this, they accused him right off the bat, because he was supposed to have been at work that night, but the mines he worked in broke down and he didnt go to work, he said he was out running around and went to a guys house who had a cassette tape of his and smoked a joint with them.....they later said he came by, but denied smoking a joint, guess they did or didnt, want to get involved.
the girl and her husband i had read had been having trouble with their next door neighbors over some parking spot, and the boys who lived up by them had always been known around the area as kinda trouble makers....the night this young girl died, someone came to her house and raped her and killed her....
roger coleman went home to his wife, who was this girls sister that night and was living with his mom or grandmom cant recall that part too well....
but the police went straight to him, and the reason was, once along time earlier when he was a teenager, a woman had accused him of attacking her....they didnt have the dna testing the way they do now...but they did not test anyone else, not even the young man who went around telling ppl he did it, and he was the neighbor, i have often wondered if roger coleman really did it, but i cant for the life of me figure out why a man would go to the electric chair shouting his innocence...when all he would have to say is god forgive me....i guess we will never know, the state of virginia calls him a murderer, but there are a good many people in grundy and around here who still scratch their head

Kevin Adkins's murder/s was never found. He was shot and killed in a field in Kimper. The poor boy was only what 25-26? I've heard a lot of talk that the cookie factory had something to do with his murder. I've even heard that the fire dept. was told to wash down the scene with their fire hoses so all evidence was lost. Has anyone else heard anything about this?

In response to the Roger Coleman case if I am not mistaken they did do a DNA test later and it was his, so that confirmed that he was guilty. I think I saw this on Cold case files.

My son Walter Cropper was killed in Prestonberg, Ky. He was at the Jog Corps there. His body was found in Adairsville, Ga. His case has never been solved. They suspected a guy named Harry Hale who was also a suspect in Micheal Manns disappearence and Christoph Zahns from Ga. This happened in September of 1992.
I am still trying to find anyone with info. Hale is up for parole next year and owns property in Prestonberg, which brings him right back there.
