Don't remember the date, I tried to review the obits from the online Terre Haute Tribune Star, but no luck. He was a close friend to Jack and I believe he was going to blow the cover on some of Jack's dealings while serving Parke County, or I should say serving himself. Joy was a diabetic that took good care of himself. He monitored his sugar and ate the right foods. He was found dead at his kitchen table. It was supposed to be a suicide, I believe there was even a letter found. Cause of death - too much insulin found in his body. Problem with this - the injection sites on his body where no way possible for a person to inject themselves there. Sounded too fishy to me.

Is there any truth to this?!?
It is from a thread on the WTHI board.

"Shannon helped Gary Cooper torch his house on Bridgeton Road Cooper moved to Florida with insurance money till things cooled off Shannon lost his job cause his ex girlfriend brought charges against him in Vermillion County for burning her car up.Shannon now owns dogtraining business paid for with his cut from Cooper Ins.money.Cooper's heart attack is still wondered about because it was just to convenient for Republican candidates at the time."

My name is Lila Crum RItz,I am the mother of Rodger A. Crum who was murdered on July 30, 1995 in a field close to Johnny Dowd's house in rural Parke Co. Rodger had been to a 10 year class reunion and road back to Rockvill In. with Duke Catlin who owed 8,000.00 to one of the classmates for meth. My sons toxicology report shows that he had 2 beers. scoll, ad a small amount of food from the party. When I saw that Wanda thought that they might have been too drunk to get out of the car I assure you that is not the case. Also Duke died with high levels of meth so he wasn't sleeping peacefully out in a field of soaking wet clover that was 3 inches high either. We need to pray for the people that did this I find it's the only thing that gets me through.

Are you sure Shannon was in on the fire at Cooper's. I was told that their son-in-law did that to get back at them. I din't think that they would have anything to do with Jack Shannon.

Based on what I had read previously, I wouldn't have thought so, but I wouldn't have believed a lot of things that I now do. I'm not from the area, don't have any contacts there to ask, so I'm having to depend on those who post on the boards...
I'm skeptical of everything initially, but trying to keep an open mind.

No one would respond on the WTHI forum...
Who was the son-in-law?

Wasn't Danny Moore's father in law( or ex father in law) a Doty? And actually, I think he got shot in the lower neck/upper chest which made his arm paralyzed.

32 years has not dimmed the horror of what happened here nor does it diminish the pain I feel for the family. My prayers are with them.

Yes, his ex father in law was a Doty.

Hard to believe that it has been 32 years since the Spencer boys died. This thread is titled "Hollandsburg Murders", but they are referring to a totally different incident that happened almost 14 years ago.

A car "spontaneously combusted" in a wet field killing two men; the field was adjacent to/near the home of a son of a US attorney.
Glad I'm not him. It's rumored that he had to tear out his whole front yard about that same time. Strange place to have your septic if you ask me...

The car didn't spontaneously combust. Anyone who lives around here knows that it was simply murder BUT according to authorities, it was due to a faulty catalytic converter on the car.

I wouldn't call it "simply" murder based on what is posted earlier in this thread. It sounds like there was a HUGE cover up. When the Indiana State Police contradict their own earlier report (i.e., did not state that the initial report was erroneous and then explain why it was wrong), it is obvious that the truth was not being told!

"Sounds like" is a key phrase there. Unfortunately, until someone comes up with some cold hard facts, and they ARE NOT related to the cops or affiliated with them in any way, it will never be solved.

Did a post get deleted? I'm not sure what you are referring to by "sounds like".
