    Sorry...no. As I said...All in or dont bother. Those thugs could easily been disposed of, burried in the woods, and listed still as Missing Persons.
    I have a relative who is a medical examiner in a major metropolitan area. The statistics for unsolved murders in that location are still more or less the same.

    They said essentially the same thing. Basically, that if no one saw you and you never talk, you'll probably get away with it.

    The biggest mistakes I saw were these

    1. Needing to make a statement. Nit just enough to do the deed...but the need to take credit and explain why.

    2. Thinking with the heart and not the mind. The so called Crime of Passion. Unplanned...hasty and sloppy.

    3. Announcing what will happen...via phone call, message, statements to others, etc.

    4. Acting too quickly so it is obvious who the main suspect would be. Patience is sometimes necessary...or so it would seem based on investigating these things.

    5. Conscience. In other words...misplaced guilt over having taken care of business...mostly because the actor never came to terms with the acceptability...by him only...of his actions.

    Dark things I suppose, but no more can be elaborated on. The old shoot-shovel-shutup is true...but think everything through beforehand like a Spec Ops people would plan an Op. That way any event you might be considering will be in the 64%.

    There may be more to this...but that is all that will be said...at least by me.

    Trivia: This was the inspiration for "Mississippi Burning". Feds got seven convictions on Civil Rights violations a few years later. They got one on manslaughter finally in 2005.

    What's really interesting about the Skidmore case is that by most standards, things were done very badly. Multiple shooters. Dozens and dozens of witnesses. By some accounts, additional people involved after the fact to disappear the guns. And so forth.

    But that social cohesiveness sure did cure a lot of ills, on this one, anyway.

    Generally people that have sailed those waters do not write or tell anyone about their travels...for obvious reasons.

    The Great Unofficial Seal of Madison County Arkansas482ebf36458d5bbdf7b009174257dd99_1080x.jpg
    I don't know about now but that was very true up to about 20years ago.
    If anyone wants to do their own research I'd suggest keywords: Arkancide, Sheriff Ralph Baker, Murder in Madison County Arkansas, Johnny Mack and his book "When Money Grew On Trees."


    Just saying.
