LD was part of the originial investigation that screwed up the crime scene, I guess he's trying to do something since its election time. Real class act LD. Don't you have to go see Pam Williamson again While on duty? You must be busy firing another non-masonic lodge employee (usually they just get a short suspension).

Wasn't there an arrest made in this case years ago? I was just a little girl when this happened, but still remember it after all these years, such a sad situation.

No arrest in this case. It is the only unsolved murder in Watauga County.
I know investigators on the case, even those who have since retired, meet annually to go over the case and that continues. The case was never closed and therefore doesn't need to the re-opened.
McDaddy, I think you are just looking for reasons to slam LD since it is election time. I never heard anything about a "screwed up" crime scene and have followed the case over the years.

LD and his "buddies" allowed and took non-law enforcement people through the crime scene before evidence was seized. He allowed them to touch items and put them back. They basically treated it like some kind of murder tour. All his "experience" was just watching standing there with a badge on or driving clyde tester to lunch. Now he gets to get ride. Hey LD, remember sending your detectives out a couple christmas ago to bussinesses to solicite door prizes for your departmental party? Goes against your oath of office. Your detective loved to share that with people. He also liked to talk about a comment you made to his female captain in a supervisor's meeting. I am sure you will hear this alittle later or his detective talking about it.(possibly) taped.

From everything I was able to find on the case, it really does look like it could have been the son in law, but who knows. The Yes!Weekly article is really interesting. I was lucky that my mom kept some newspaper clippings because surprisingly, there has never been a lot of coverage on this crime. You would think that an unsolved triple homicide in a small town would be snatched up by "Unsolved Mysteries" or something like that in a heartbeat.

House is on 105 bypass. From what I heard, Sheriff Ward Carroll said he knew who the murderer was, but didn't have enough evidence to press charges. Wonder if one of those cold case squads could come in and try to solve it?

It seems overlooked, but all the twists are very interesting. I wish someone with "Unsolved Mysteries" would look into it.

I've been in that house! The family who lived there when I was younger was friends with my Dad. Definitely was creepy knowing what happened there. I don't think I could live there!

After posting on here, I asked my mom about the murders. She told me the cops covered up a lot about the deaths to hide the gruesome activity that took place from the public. She said sure they were found tied in the bath tub, but that wasnt all. The cops kept evidence very hush hush which is probably why it was never solved. My mom was 15 when it happened and she told me that our cousin worked as a nurse in the hospital. What she saw terrified her. The bodies had been mutilated and body parts were missing. This sent chills down my spine and my mom explained that everyone thought it was cult killing in the effect of the Manson Murders. Creepy stuff. No one would ever expect things like that to happen in Boone, even in this day which is why the cops left out the gory details as to "shelter" everyone. I trust my family's word because our cousin was a God fearing woman and was a very proper lady. My mother recalled her having trouble talking about what she saw that night it was so disturbing. My mother has no reason and I am here with no cause to tell a story. I just have a thing for the macabe. Its a tragic story and with no solution and its crazy to believe how everything was covered up for the public's benefit. That's all I know about it, but I almost wished I didn't ask her about that night

Maybe law enforcement didn't tell everything because they thought it might jeopardize the case. They usually hold a bunch of details back that only the perpetrators would know.

You could very well be correct, but unfortunately withholding evidence did not help them solve this case. It's just a shame...

LD was not in high school at that time. He graduated from Watauga in 1968. So did I.

My dad emailed me the wilkes gazette article for me to read this past week. I heard about this triple murder growing up as I am part of their family, but before my time. It always seemed unreal that someone in my family could of had this happen to them. I was intrigued to find out more about what happened.

Was Cecil Small involved also? or was he just an innocent bystander?
