I think EVERYONE should allow this LADY to REST in PEACE. This is insane to keep this story going on for years. This Lady is not a funny ghost story. This was very sad way to leave this world.

Why do people want to prey on Lady's murder??

I think Mamie cannot rest in peace until we discover who her true murderer was. We all know they pinned it on the black guy. That is why she haunts 22 mountain and other areas of Logan such as the Courthouse. She wants us to find the identity of the real killer and expose it to the public and the descendants of that family.

would you rest in peace if you were slain????

oh noes, find her pimp, LAWL!!!111

So, I guess everyone should shut up about her? Even the people that have included her in their books for decades? Yeah, let's forget one of the most infamous events of Logan County. Guess we'll just wait for another Big Creek 6 to happen.

Excuse my sarcasm.

I think this is part of Logan County History, and maybe the answer of who did the murder may exist in one of the older families in Logan, may be a deep dark family secret!

YES SHE DOES REALLY HAUNT THIS PLACE.....I was up there with my friends when I was 16 and it was about 11:45pm....we were coming back down off of 22 mine road to come home when all of a sudden about 7 miles from the highway, the lights went out on the truck, the engine died, and there was a transparent figure climbed into the back of the truck and rode with us for about 5 miles, when the figure left the truck, everything came back on and we were able to stop before we got to the highway........I do believe in spirits and have helped a few of them to pass on to the afterlife.
FIND HER REALL KILLER SO SHE CAN REST IN PEACE!!!!!!!!

i think they need to find the real killer,also as long as people remembers her she's never forgotten like others who have been murdered and forgotten while the real killer goes free,i also believe it was someone with "power" in logan at that time maybe the truth will come out one day when all involved are dead or dieing..death bed confession

We all know Harry Robertson and maybe his wife killed Mamie. He owned the gun that killed her. They found a knife and blood stained canvas at his house along with blood in his car. He owned a cabin at 22 where the body was left. Clarence Stephenson took the blame for his white prominent banker boss. Which was wrong and I think someone needs to clear his name for his relatives sake and finally name the real killer Harry Robertson.
