I think this may be a serial killer. Just from the dates of the article. The time between the last murder in th 80's and the most recent 2000 could be that the killer was in carcirated for a number of years on some other crime. Then went back to killing when released. This is just my theory.

There is an older cold case that I thought of...Who killed Dr.George Archer? Early 70's I think. I remember my grandmother crying because he had been murdered. No one was ever named in that case that I can remember. He was found shot, in his car. I would like to see them open this case back up. He was a wonderful old fashioned family Dr. that was also mayor at the time of his death.

I talked to her just after Doc George was killed and just before her death. I am convinced she did not do it. Someone killed Doc George and then framed her up with her supposed suicide.

ANOTHER cold case in Prestonsburg is all but forgotten and that is the murder of cheerleader Muriel Baldridge under the West P-burg Bridge. They tried Moles and Dotson for it and ended in a mistrial and 35 years later an indictment was being brought in the case and the cop backed off when his family was threatened.

Think people don't get away with MURDER around there? Sheriff HENRY HALE killed Prestonsburg Cop Chuck Akers with his own gun and framed that up as a suicide all over them both tapping a piece of ass Dispatcher named Molly Chaffin.

Someone always knows the truth it is just a matter of whether it comes out or not.

Stevie McKnight was a murder ruled an accidental death, and they got some guy to take the fall for carving up Ricky "Pooh" Hall. Most recently a young fellow was killed at Maytown and they staged that to look like an automobile accident to protect someone with pull in the courthouse.

Bloody Floyd will always be Bloody Floyd.

It`s just like the murder of Sandy Hess in Pike Co. They know who the murderer is, but there`s no way of proving it... sad but true. The only good witness in this case also ended up dead, which makes other people think twice before coming forth with what they know.

I knew Brian Keith Mullins fairly well. He was found dead in his yard in 1987. It seemed like the police hung around Johns Creek for a few weeks and then he was forgotten. Let's get justice for him by opening this case back up.

His three children are still alive and one living in Prestonsburg. It is much too painfull for them to be drug through this again. Once is enough. I have the feeling the one connected had it swept under the rug. It is more inportant for his sons and daughter to live in peace then we to know the secret. God has already taken care of it.

Yell I think the missing person thing is so misterious. I know a man that has been missing for years and never found his body or anything. Michell Manns from allen.
I also saw something on Mcdowell topics about a man named Donnie Mac Stumbo who has been missing for 27 years and just suddenly reappears in Mcdowell, but according to topix comments, he ain't talking, they said his sister had declared him dead so his kids could have some kind of closure. I think this is pretty weird, where has he been for 27 years and why? The twilight zone.

I remember hearing about this one too, seems really weird that people can just vanish and never heard from again. I couldn't imagine being one of those family mambers, the not knowing and wondering.

KSP Johny Edrington found shot to death on Rt. 80, killed by his own handgun. Laying beside his patrol car. I believe he was done in by a person he knew and trusted, probably a woman/lover/wife/jealous husband.
