The last news article said that he was in court last Tuesday and his attorney asked for a change of venue and a change of judge. The judge will rule on that next Monday. No date has been set for the actual trial to start.

Never! He took the easy way out....died today!
Wonder where that leaves Ross Milburn who was going to testify against him?
Guess the case will remain open forever now.

Max Ellison, Jr., graduated Sikeston HS in 1966, ran a gun shop here in Sikeston for some time, later went to jail for abduction, kidnapping and extortion charges, and implicated to some degree in the death of Debbie Martin nearly 30 years ago. He was directly and indirectly connected to Allan Milubrn who was convicted of continuing criminal enterprise and drug king pin in our area.

I doubt a hit from Milburn.The pending trial may have led to Milburn's release.This should really be an interesting story of what caused his death.I feel sorry for the Martin family in that they may never recieve the closier they need and for the remaining members of Ellison's family,although I don't think he had many living relatives.

Well now don't that just beat all. Crazy Cooter thinks he's got the inside story about Ellison. Thanks for reminding us of what everybody already knows. You only f*^ked up on one part. Milburn was not "connected" to Ellison in any way, directly or indirectly. He had no idea that Debbie was seeing Ellison, and had not even seen Ellison since high school. BTW, I like your name "Crazy Cooter", it seems to fit well.

Oh, and in addition just to set the record straight. The feds and the news media called him a "kingpin". He wasn't anymore a "kingpin" than Ron Humphries or Gary Darnall. Now, old man Jimmeson down in Sunset was a "kingpin". How many years did he get??? John Gotti was a "kingpin". Manuel Noriega was a "kingpin". He was up for parole after twelve years. Milburn was a small fish in a big pond. The feds made him out to be a whole lot bigger than he was. Ahhhhhhhh...the federal government. Don't you just love the way they do things?

Gotti died in the same prison Milburn is in. and compared to the normal chump 2 bit dealers around here he was big time operator. But it really doesn't matter that much, Ellison is dead and took a lot of information with him to the grave.

normal chump/2 bit dealers. I'm sure you knew them all. I'm sure you were right there on the scene. You probably even helped Milburn count his money. Or maybe you were Ellison's partner in crime. Unless you've got proof that Ellison and Milburn were "connected" you're just blowing hot air. Knowing them for 45 years don't mean sh*t.

It's kind of strange the reactions to any critical thinking of Alan Milburn is received on these posts. Makes you think his family is working overtime trying to make him appear small time. I can only hope that the state's attorney take a look at these and realize that his friends, family and defenders think drug dealing is no big deal, great way to make a living, and that Debbie Martins life didn't really amount to much according to the Milburn family. That should really help his chance at parole.

First off, I don't want anyone to think I am sticking up for Max, because I believe he was an evil man and the world is better off without him, but I wanted to set the record straight...He fought cancer while in prison serving his lengthy sentence, and had it come back before being arrested this last time. Saturday, he lost that battle with cancer. The person that said he doesn't have much family left is correct, but there are a few left that had written him off and made a good life for themselves, so for their sake, can we finally let their nightmare fade? Debbie's family knows what happened to her and unfortunately didn't get to have their day in court, but I'm sure they would like to try to get their life back to some kind of normalcy, also.

What is your problem besides simple comprehension?
Alan had nothing to do with her murder. He's more than paid for his crime and if you knew him, which you obviously don't, he's a great guy who made mistakes.
You're sure making a loy of assumptions about the Milburn family and how they feel.

You are assuming that it is his family that is defending him on these posts. It is not. It is just friends who knew him well, and the opinions of a few law enforcement people, lawyers, etc. who know that he received a rediculous sentence. The real killer has been found out, and no doubt would have been convicted. There are a lot of postings on here "assuming" a lot of b.s. pretaining to Milburn. Besides, this is Topix. You're not going to get much "critical thinking" on this website.

Listen dickweed, they were indeed connected...I witnessed some of it and know others directly involved personally, some in jail, some out. We all were in school together for 7 years or more

If you only knew fool .. if you only knew. Can name names, dates, places, events, including many of Scott County officials, and locals too. Neither were small potatoes like the Sumlins or Jimmersons by any means. The link ran from New York to Chicago to here to Memphis, to New Orleans and Florida and back again. One local guy who used to run Kool Breexe and comany worked with them transporting in rental cars, and in very large amounts. Saw that with my own eyes.

Well, Crazy Cooter, tell us a little more. At least you cary on a conversation and aren't so hostile like some of the other folks.

I like reading Crazy Cooter's posts.I do believe that he is someone in the know.I went to school with Milburn and Ellison and know some of the history but nothing compared to Crazy Cooter. I think he knows quite a bit about this saga.This is an interesting subject and I think he knows what he is talking about.
