I have been told by a couple of people about a crime that happened years ago on the Gorge Road, where a person was chopped up and buried under the front lawn of the home. I'm not talking in reference to Bernard Hatch either. Does anyone know if this is true or just a story that some made up? I've searched the Internet to no avail and am very curious about it.

I think I remember hearing about a murder in Westernville or something. Not sure if it is the same one.

Man killed in his driveway where he was shovelling snow. Killed by a passerby by striking him with his shovel. 1970's. The house is located by the locks, red house with a wrap-around deck and garage beneath it. That is all I know. I remember that it did not make big news at the time. Not sure they ever caught the killer.

We have also been trying to find info on this. I have searched internet and found nothing. We were told a man was beaten to death with a shovel in the driveway, but no one has any details other than that.

I heard he only chopped the guys wiener off with the shovel. He then beat him the rest of the way to death with the severed wiener.

Yes, I remember the murder case. It was so sad. The man kept his home in perfect condition. I heard he was out shoveling his driveway. A man stopped to ask directions. He then took the shovel and beat the homeowner to death. Was this ever solved? Does anyone know.

No. The homeowner was simply cleaning his driveway. He had the most beautiful home in the gorge. No one saw this coming.

wasn't she hit in the head with a hammer when she came home in her garage?
wasnt it a snowy day and a repeat offender who was in jail for robbing them before?

Usually things like this would have ended up written about in the Boonville Herald. It might be in their archives. Also the Rome Sentinel covers that area.
I do remember though the case on the road now called the Gleasman Rd. where the gal slipped out a bathroom window and her boyfriend shot her in the naked butt with buck shot. That was in the 90s.

"one source said SHE SCREAMED just before she got her "just share" as well"
