I'm sorry this happened to him and for you guys that knew him too. You were all just little kids. You shouldn't have had to experience that.

Johnny Bell was my best friend and to this day I remeber when it happen and I just miss him so much!!! There was no motive cause he was just a 9 yr. Old child going home from a friends house and who ever did this should be in jail or in the gas camber even that to kind for the sucker! Anyone that could do that to a child don't deserve to live.

It was in 1982. The African American boy had been seen skating through the neighborhood one evening and then he disappeared. Corn Hill residents were going door-to-door looking for him. He was found 2 months later in the basement of a 3 story home. He was shot and had been molested. The culprit was Gene Carter, a long time resident. There was a mix up because there were 2 men by that name and they got a tip and arrested the wrong man at first. They released him and then someone smelled a foul odor coming from the house. After searching, they found the boy. Pictures of Johnny had been sent throughout the community showing him with a 4-5 inch afro. Two weeks after the discovery of Johnny, Johnny's friend, a nine year old, hung himself.
