Talk with someone from kentuck baptist church where the murder took place. Brown was at large for weeks and was thought to be hiding out in the woods around phelps county. Roadblocks were set up all around the county and people would be stopped snd asked to pop their trunks open to be inspected by rifle toting police and deputies. It was a time of fear and worry. The police finally put a strip of yellow tape on the seam around the trunk of the car so that uf the tape was unbroken they didnt have to check that particular car. Brown was finally apprehended at a diner in oklahome who spotted him from a wanted poster by an alert waitress. Prrhaps paul smith, mayor of doolittle can remember more details or direct you to someone who remembers more. Also the highway patrol, rolla daily news, and google might be a source of info as well.

I just remebered another detail. Low flying heliocopters were all around the area over the woods, checking outbreports that he was spotted. That was partcularly scary at nightbwhen they would use their huge spotlights as they fly. The sound of the chopoers and the light at night....very stressful.
Some people left their homes in isolated areas and stayed with friends or motels in town.

I remember being in high school and going to a softball game at Newburg. The cops stopped me and searched my car.

You can use the Freedom of Information Act or "Sunshine Law" and request the reports from all involved law enforcement agencies.

It didn't take place at Kentuck Baptist Church, it was at the Apostalic church in Doolittle right along I-44. A guy getting ready for church services on Saturday night was shot and killed. Rumor has it a sherrif deputy got a little trigger happy and they blamed in on John Brown. John Brown was convicted of it none-the-less.

When they were looking for him in Rolla, he showed up at the Ted Williams Steakhouse. Somebody recognized him and they chased him south into the woods where he gave them the slip.

He confessed about 5 yrs ago to a murder of a female that he killed and put her body in a pond. I believe that murder was actually in pulaski county. It's always been rumored that he did not kill the guy in Doolittle, even if they say he confessed to it who's to say he wasn't forced or they made it up? Initially he denied that murder, the guy was no threat to him. You can probably find out what prison he is in a write him a letter.
