I was in Harts Chapel Nissan on Tuesday, the 13th,just before noon, concerning business. I met & had a conversation with Bill Ross. He was a very nice, friendly man.
He was murdered less than 14 hours later. This has been very upsetting to me personally. I've followed this story very closely & have been horrified by what has unfolded. My brother was shot & killed, by a mutual friend, the day after Valentines Day in 1980. He was 22 yrs old & his wife was 7 months pregnant with his only child.This was so devasting to my entire family. Bill Ross was shot & killed on Valentines Day. It has been 27 years since my brother's death. I know the pain that Bill's family & other Loved Ones are going through right now. My heart goes out to all of Bill's family, friends, workmates, & Loved Ones. In sincere sympathy, L. Littrell

Thanks for sharing your story. I am sure the pain is still there even 27yrs later and the similarities are uncanny. Bill and I were good friends and grew up together in Knox, IN. He married my cousin (Kim) a little while back so I obviously have very close ties to both Bill and Kim. This is a complete shock to everyone because both Bill and Kim are very much loved by our family. Even if she did commit this act she will be loved and embraced by everyone in this family because we live our lives by the covenants that Christ has set before us. Unforgiveness is not an option in this family.

Thanks again for sharing and may God continue to bless you.

I lived in Tulsa for 4 years and I am well aware of Kim's past. If she is guilty she will pay the penalty but as christians her family (most of which live in Oklahoma) must forgive just as Jesus forgave us. The Bible says there is none righteous...(in other words, we all have a rap sheet). That is why God sent Jesus because every single one of us are worthless without him.

YES, JESUS CHRIST DOES FORGIVE, AND ALL SINS ARE EQUAL. THAT STILL DOESN'T MEAN THAT A PERSON HAS THE RIGHT TO TAKE ANOTHER HUMAN BEINGS LIFE, KIM IS GOING TO HAVE ALOT OF ANSWERING TO DO WHEN SHE MEETS HER MAKE, FOR I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT SHE HAS DONE ALOT OF EVIL STUFF WHILE LIVING IN TULSA, SHE IS A REAL GOOD CON ARTIST, NEVER BELIEVEING THAT IT WOULD ALL CATCH UP TO HER. I GUESS WHAT I'M TRYING TO SAY IS THAT I DON'T BELIEVE SHE HAS A CONSCIENCE, IF SHE DID IT WOULD HAVE BOTHERED HER SO BAD THAT SHE WOULD HAVE STOPPED DOING BAD THINGS TO PEOPLE ALONG TIME AGO AND MR. BILL ROSS WOULD STILL BE HERE TODAY WITH HIS FAMILY.

I cannot argue with anything you are saying. You're right, nobody has the right to kill. There is no doubt that if she did these things there will be a very tough price to pay. This is all just a crying shame and I still cannot belive that this is all taking place. It just makes me ill to think about it.

As I stated a couple of days ago, this murder hits too close to home for me.

I just wish that Kim would have put the effort into "getting away from Bill" as she did "planning his murder"

Kim, well in fact all three people involved in this murder showed zero remorse when being arrested for killing Bill Ross.

Kim was claiming abuse, among other things. IF Bill was abusive, as she claimed, then she should have been plotting on how to flee the situation, instead of figuring out the easiest way to kill him & blame it on 2 black men. Not to mention the elaborate ruse of being tied up.

I know Kim has a family & I'm sure they are devastated by these events. But,she knowingly & willingly carried out this heinous plot & coerced two other people to help her succeed at murdering her husband. I think it is callous of her family to keep bringing forgiveness & Jesus to her defense.

As far as Jesus & the bible are concerned:
The Ten Commandments are very clear
THOU SHALT NOT KILL
THOU SHALT NOT COMMIT ADULTERY
THOU SHALT NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS AGAINST THY NEIGHBOUR

I feel absolutely no empathy or sympathy for this woman & do not feel that she deserves such. What she has done will impact Bill's family for the rest of their lives. The grief is never-ending. Sure, time lessens the pain, but it is still screaming just below the surface. Bill's family & loved ones are the ones that need everyone's prayers & empathy. Not his murderers.

I CAN'T EVEN IMAGINE THE PAIN MR. ROSS'S CLOSE FRIEND'S AND FAMILY ARE GOING THROUGH,THE NOT KNOWING WHY THIS HAD TO HAPPEN AND WAITING FOR SOME KIND OF AN ANSWER. JUST CHERRISH ALL GOOD MEMORIES. I WAS GLAD TO SEE YOU WRITE THAT YOU THOUGHT SOMETHING JUST WASN'T RIGHT WITH KIM, SHE COULD FOOL A LOT OF PEOPLE. I DON'T KNOW THE OTHER TWO PEOPLE INVOLVED, AND I'M NOT JUSTIFING WHAT THEY HAVE DONE,BECAUSE THEY ALSO KNOW RIGHT FROM WRONG, BUT I'M JUST WONDERING WHAT KIM PROMISED THEM OR OFFERED THEM TO GET THEM TO PARTICIPATE IN SUCH A HORRIBLE THING.THE THREE OF THEM SHOULD PAY THE ULTIMATE PRICE UNDER TENNESSEE LAWS. GOD BLESS YOU, YOUR FAMILY AND THE ROSS FAMILY.

Travis, now that she's locked up forever your future is brighter than it ever could have been with her in your life. You get to choose your own actions now, and without fear of her.Always choose the right thing to do and everything will work out for you. It won't happen over night & it'll take hard work but life isn't easy for any of us. I know it's been harder for you than any kid should have deal with but it can only get better now! Take care, forgive & forget about your past, and start today being the person you'd really like to be. It's all up to you.

I have known Bill Ross(we called him Billy) for 15 years. He was one of the greatest friends that I have ever known. I have been following this story and have read all the acusations that Kim has made about Billy and it breaks my heart to think that anyone would ever believe her. I had supper with Kim and Billy in Knox about 8 months ago. She was showing ultra sound pictures of triplets that she was to be carrying. She was a fast talker..but seemed "different". She had told me that she was a "of all things" a marriage counciler. I didn't really know how to take her. Bill has always been a kind and compassionate man. He was always looking for opportunity to help others and he had a very humble way of expressing his pain. There isn't enough space to say all the kind and wonderful things I could say about Billy. He seemed to always have a smile..and a beautiful one to. Billy will be so missed but although we all want him back he is safe in the arms of Jesus and is no longer feeling pain. I am a Christian and I believe one must forgive but never forget. Kim and her friends have wounded many people in her family and Billy's..but I believe that the courts will deal with them as severe as the laws will allow..however God is the final judge and she along with the rest of us will face the final judgement. My prayers to the family and friends. Billy..I love you Buddy! Rest in peace for you are safe now!

Big bubba.. i know how you feel! im sorry your up there having to hear about it everyday! Ive DISLIKED mom forever! I dont see how God can forgive her for all the things she has done! I hope she NEVER gets out! She needs to know that not everything is forgivable! I hope to see you soon! I hope everything is okay! The people in Tennessee know the real Kim NOW! Im so sorry yo guys couldnt see it sooner! I know Bill would never even think about hurting anyone! He was a very quiet man! He kept to himself when i saw him! I feel no sympathy for her! EVeryone thinks i should but no matter what i dont at all!

She needs all the prayers she can get, this is Billy's niece and unfortunately Kim's cousin. The Judge did an excellent job, she is where she needs to be PRISON
