If anyone has been around the area since the 80's, do you remember the murder of Crystal Wright in or around Old Reid park? She was fifteen. Murdered by Todd Sodders. Just curious about the details.

I'd frequently run across Todd Sodders during the travels of my vagabond youth. I remember him breathing the butane from a cigarette lighter, flicking the lighter on, and accidentally catching his mouth on fire. Dude was a total stoner.

I have some weird connections to Crystal, and I've never been able to get too many details other than old newspaper clippings. He's truly a creep. I find it odd that his dad was an elected official (Clark County Auditor) for several years and the fact that his son is a murderer was never brought into the light as much as people like dirt!
So, twinertia, it sounds like Todd was into the party scene....I knew that after he killed Crystal he was arrested at a party in Enon. Like nothing happened....

He'd turn up in odd places around Enon; I'd always spot him in a fight with a girlfriend when they lived in a top-floor apartment over what's now Subway's. He'd frequently be seen fleeing bathrooms at Greenon after someone's pot-smoking reports. His Dad's had occasional bouts with a drinking problem (not surprising). Knew his sister, Lisa, and always felt sorry for her, as she's one of the nicest people you'd ever meet.

Always thought Todd was a burn-out, but was amazed to discover he had THAT much of a nasty streak in him. Weird.

Todd is a great guy who got wrapped up in some bad stuff, sometimes bad stuff happens to good people, and sometimes horrible unthinkable stuff happens. Let it go it's in the past.

I'm not trying to stir anything up. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. I was just looking for some details if anyone had them.
I understand that people make mistakes. If it was your friend or family member you may not say to let it go though.....

I went to JVS with him and I can confirm that he was a strange guy. I can remember when he cut a hole in the top of his hand and put a diamond ( I may be wrong about the diamond) and let the skin grow over .
He also asked my BF to the prom she told him no so he would leave notes and dead flowers by her locker. We are still bf's and she still is freaked out by Todd. It was a horrible crime. In the late 80's they had to have security at Ferncliff cemetary because he (or someone else) threatened to dig her body up.
In the middle of the mall across from Spenser's there used to be plague that was a memorial to Crystal.It is were they engrave items. I knew Lisa and she was a nice person. But Todd was not a nice person. To do this I can remember walking down a flight of steps at school and Todd was behind me I was so scared of him. I partied a lot in the 80's and I knew no one as weird as Todd!

west ender,

If you go back and read my previous comments you will see I never said I knew either one of them. I said I have some weird connections to the situation.

classof85,
thank you for the info. I appreciate all these little details. Did you know Crystal or know of her at all? I'm unable to find anyone that did. I know she lived with her grandmother but she has since passed away.
