I know of one. It happened around the 1940's on 460 on the bear branch hill, just above the road that turns up to grape creek.

Thanks for the information. I never knew they had charged anyone. That happened before I was born. I had heard my family talk about it. Wasn't this Whitt man a neighbor, did he live across the road on top of the hill? I am not sure, I am trying to remember the story. He robbed them didn't he?

I don't believe this county has any unsolved cases. From what KSP and the media states Greg Back has been identified 100%. Charges haven't been mentioned, but in time I'm sure something will be brought out of it. Like a previous poster mentioned the Bear Branch murder was solved years ago and the convicted did time. Jonny Rice was self defense from what I have always heard, well what it got ruled. There's some missing people out there that havent been found though.

If you go to this site:

You can read about all sorts of old murders, possibly even a serial killer in Johnson County as there were several bodies found dumped on the River Bank.

That's a really interesting site. Does anyone know of any more that Magoffin County might be in?

Anyone remember the Licking River Baptist preacher who was shot and his body burned in his car on Booger Hill back in the 70's. There was never even a suspect in that one. There are many unsolved murders in Magoffin County that we know of, how many do you suppose aren't known as "murders". And, Greg Back's murder is definitely unsolved and will remain so until the killer is brought to justice.

Wasn't there a lady killed down on Trace many many years ago and nothing was ever done about it. Didn't she run a joint of some kind down there.
