And it doesn't look like they have done one bit of cleaning up since then. Trashy people. Someone needs to call code enforcement.

Yes, do you live in Acton?

Do you of anything on the 1970 murder? I can't find anything on ti anywhere. I'm wondering if they ever caught the killer.

Two young men named Russel and a Welcher were under investigation, by the Marion County Sheriff's Dept. for the 1970 Exchange Street Murder. Russell claimed he shot the old woman with his 410 over under, and covered her body with a sheet. The investigating official Deputy Sheriff Eads said he was ordered not to pursue the matter any farther. This is a dead file that involves local politics and will never be reopened. Russell had long hair at the time and it is possible that he left some DNA behind. I understand that he has since gone on to destroying other lives.

I think you need to recheck the names one was a Martin boy and the other one was Joe something and at one time they confessed but the confessions were thrown out because they were on drugs but then you are right the whole investigation came to a screeching halt.
