my sister-in-law was found dead in a ditch on route 80 in august of 1985. Her name was Linda Belcher Cook...widowed with 3 children. Never found out what happened. We truly miss the outgoing,bubbly,loving person she was. If anyone knows anything it would be great to know what happened to her.

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.
Who was this young man killed in maytown, framed to look like an accident? Hope it's not who I am thinking

I am John Archers great granddaughter. George was Johns brother, my grandmothers uncle guess that makes him my great great uncle. In our family genealogy book, his mistress is mentioned however they make mention of a political race as well that he may have had an opponent out for a sure win. He is spoke of sometimes in our family.. We spend our days at archer park during the summer.. I often wonder if he will ever see justice

Floyd County is the home of my family, but the crime wave has been going on for centuries. My cousin bootlegged whiskey and beer right across the street from the courthouse, and he told me the police bought it also. A former sheriff and his brother jailor in Floyd County ran a bootlegging ring for years with bootleggers being raided twice a year. News would be broadcasted and printed about busting him. The next day they would deliver his whiskey back to him. The Christians would say they got him this time. What about the dog fighting ring 48 Hours telecasted, and all Floyd County Authorities claimed they didn't know that a large seating outdoor arena was right in their sight in Wheelwright. Wheeler Lewis and his brother Mack was attacked near Davidson's Cemetery and no one was apprehended. Poor citizens of Floyd County I counted over a dozen murders that hasn't been solved.

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 was small child back when that happened around 7 or 8 but that day has stuck in my head ever since i can remember it happened in the evening a cashier at cooley's grocery store reported seeing a stranger come in i say stranger cause back then everybody new everybody else, anyway she reported to police she saw a gun handle sticking out of his pocket, i believe he was shot with a small calber handgun, i don't think they ever idenified who he was, i just always wondered along with most people in town why they never were able to solve his assasination.

Think of this as you will. That poor Trooper, was murdered by a peice of trash that still walks free. That young girl who burned to death in that trailer with no electricity on the Auxier Road was in the car when it happened, Lon Evern Slone, died of a sopposed drug overdose was in the car when it happened. The Killer was Indicted on Capital Murder charges (for the girl), which were later dismissed, after LES died. I told the KSP what I knew a long time ago, it does no good, only 1 witness to the actual crime exists, the one who did it! The killer was not a serial killer, he was hauling a load of cocain from Florida to Floyd County. Now it's Roxy's! How do you like that side of the drug Empire, your politicians are backing?

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.
isn't Harry Hale a suspect in his disapearance
