When i was a kid i remember a story about a lady who killed another lady in Walnut Ridge then supposedly chopped her up and tried to burn her. Does anyone remember this as being factual or is this just a story kids were telling to scare their buddies?

Yep. Happened on Ridgecrest. New wife killed ex-wife or vice-versa. Thought she was a missing person for several months until they figured it all out, I think.

I vaguely remember this story. Seems one time as a youngster when I had come to town to visit my grandparents, we went rummage selling. We stopped at a house across the street and my mom and aunt started talking about how that was the house where that had took place. That's a memory I had pushed to the back of my mind. It's good to know more of the details now.
