Coy, I hope you don't read this shit. People can be such assholes sometimes. It doesn't matter if your son was the president of the United States or Charles Manson. The pain at the death of child is the same to a mother and father. It really doesn’t matter what they say now. Coy, try to find peace when ever you can. My deepest sympathy to you and your family.

I know for a fact that david mcdNIEL DID IT..HE WAS BRAGGING TO PPL ABOUT IT..I CALLED THE LOCAL SHERIFFS DEP. AND THAT TOLD ME IT WOULD BE INVESTIGATED...ok so they didnt..heres what i know..i hope this gets back to joshs family and they take it public..he was talking to a guy named jeremy sinbad and they he said they were buying drugs off josh and wanted to rob him..but jsoh was resistant and fought back..so they shot him in the head..they also took 1200 hundred dollars out of his poket and left 100 so it wouldnt look like a robbery...david mcdaniel has robbed 3 or 4 drug dealer but only killed josh..and last week david was on the news for stealing purses and yet still not in jail...i think its sad that drugs run this county...the cops really nedd to step up or it is only going to get worse...

First of all they can't arrest someone on "hearsay"...People brag sometimes for the attention...I don't know this McDaniels dude, but how do you Know it isn't being investigated? So many have their own opinions on who done it...I hope they catch the SOB that ripped this family apart...I know the cops would step up if they had cold hard facts and not hearsay...Their hands are tied until someone steps up and does the right thing...

"Their hands are tied until someone steps up and does the right thing"?? In other words, the investigation stops unless someone confesses?? Once again, there is no investigation-only a wait till someone confesses. Do you really believe that the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Information and Identification conducts its work by sitting and waiting for a confession? Face the fact that the representatives of the the Ohio BCI were here for five to seven days and then left. This murder became the next in a long line of Meigs County murder cold cases going back to the seventies. Start with Dude Howard and come forward.

In other words since you have poor reading comprehension they need facts not hearsay, doesn't mean it should stop...Someone may know something and isn't reporting it...Perhaps we should all (those who knew this family and Josh) get our purses/wallets out and collect some real money to offer a reward for the arrest and conviction of this worthless piece of shit that took him away from all that loved him...Just like heartfelt did the right thing and reported what they "heard"...yes, I think hearsay should be reported too...
about Dude Howard, can you tell me where they found him? My now ex husband threatened to kill me and he took me to a place and said "It'll take horses for them to find you...I immediately thought of the Howard case because it was where I "heard" they found him...I didn't live around here at the time it happened but I did hear stories...My first thought in all my fear that day was "hmmm, are you the one that did that?" He has "bragged" about participating in killing a biker (from East Liverpool) and even confessed to me (when he found religion) that he killed a baby for 3,000.00 in Pennsylvania over 20 yrs. ago...

Under the belt line near one of the now closed mine entrances. Shoeless and shirtless. Girlfriend dead in his house on Roush Lane, shot in back of head.
By the way, Ithink I have pretty good reading comprehension.
How old is your ex-husband? He would have had to have been involved in the powder cocaine business in 70's .

that's where he took me,he said he would take me so far into it they wouldn't find me...He is 62 now...cocaine,arson,pot,pills, you name it he was into it...He burned his truck around that time...or maybe in the early 80's, It's been so long ago...

this so true,sad but true. My mom was killed almost 21 yrs ago,they blamed it on a car accident,I knew from that night and the lifestyle she lived it wasnt an accident.Over the years you hear things,pieces fall together,people talk,you find clues in their personal belongings.I know for a fact who took my mothers life.Can I prove it short of a confession,who knows? 21 yrs later and I only found out 3 yrs ago. Meigs co has crazy people in it for sure,you gotta figure who you can trust,who is dirty and who isnt and see where it leads you.my prayers to the starcher family,regardless a life is a life,and nothing is worse than always wondering,I pray you get your answers quicker than I did and I pray even harder you Josh gets justice.God Bless.

I guess ABC123 rather conveniently chose his name for this post-I certainly do not have any knowledge about the individual he refers to

I am Josh's sister. I want to say I appreciate all of you who are still trying to help find the bastard who shot my brother. Josh was an amazing person, despite his faults and justice needs to be done for him. I would like all of you to know that Micheal Trout, BCI investigator is still working on the case. His email is [email protected] eral.gov' if any of you would like to email him directly with ANY information, may it be heresay or not. Once again thank you all for your support. I know Josh was loved by many, despite what some people may say about him.

are you referring to todd johnson? if so I completely agree!! Willie Kauff only got 8 years.I was at that hearing,and still have the newspaper clipping,crow told him he was lucky he didnt charge him with murder since he kicked him in the head and threw him in the water.I will also tell you I was married to Jason and I am still friends with him,he got 18 years for a mutual fight,the witnesses out there told what happened,and he didnt deserve 18 yrs. Willie is out still a POS and J is on yr 14.

Yes I Remb whn Todd died .... That was a very sad day for alot of people .... My thing is they said Todd drowned so if Willie kicked him an through him n the water an Todd drowned it was Willie that did it .... I knew a Mother that lost here son to 18 yrs n jail for a crime he didn't do an now Jason will never get to c his mom bc she past away last yr so I think the court systems an the cops need to do their fn job right an not let bad guys get away
