I can't quite figure out why you had such a strong reaction to my post and feel like your post says a lot more about you than me. The reason for my post
is because I am concerned about the murder of children. Your post makes me wonder about your motivation?
but it also seems obvious that just because an event is in the past, doesn't mean it can't been looked at and judged.
I know the 70's must seem like a long time ago to you but I remember (even then) that people who cared for children and were responsible for their
safety, would not disregard a child's ankle being grabbed. Even if it was another child pulling a prank, it should have been dealt with because........it
wouldn't be a harmless act. Anyone, child or adult, who causes pain to another for their own amusement is not a harmless person.. Pinga

I was only 7 at the time of the murders and I have lived in Northeast Oklahoma my whole life. I do not have any information to add to the
"investigation" but I was surprised to see someone was still wanting answers to the questions posed by the murders. I too am of American Indian
decent and was always told GLH "didn't do it" by relatives. I however would believe evidence over rumor any day. My father has the book that
someone mentioned in earlier posts "Someone Cry for the Children" (haunting title). Only today I borrowed it from my Dad to loan to a coworker who
has also lived in the surrounding area all her life. We both remember when the murders took place, she is several years older then I so I am sure she can
recall the events better then I do. I only remember the adults talking about children and murders. I remember my parents being very cautious over that summer
when my brothers and I played outside.... but that is about it.
I had never heard some of the theories that have been discussed here. I think there is a large part of the current Northeast Oklahoma population that
would like to resolve some of the lingering questions concerning these murders, alas, I don't believe we ever will.
In far Northeast Oklahoma there has been several murders that seem to leave lingering questions, doubts, and suspicion. I wonder if other areas of
our great country are the same way? Is this a common tale? A brother and sister were tried and convicted of killing their parents and a two year old sibling
when I was in my teens. It happened in the little town of Welch in Craig county. I have heard people discuss this case and say that the boy did the killings
and the girl was not involved, all sorts of theories.
In Craig county a man was shot down by sheriffs deputies, not a uncommon thing, problem is the man was unarmed and shot in the back, he had also
reported the sheriffs department was harassing him to local authorities. A few months later the same mans brother and sister-in-law were found murdered in
their home. The home was burned to the ground and the bodies were not discovered at first. The family was allowed on the site the day after the fire and
discovered the body of the missing man. The sheriffs deputies, who were the first to investigate the scene had not seen his charred remains in the rubble, the
body of the sister-in-law was later discovered at the scene as well. Two teen age girls were at the same house the night it burned to the ground, they have
never been found. The rumors abound with the missing girls, a serial killer who was on a spree at the time, and in the area, claimed responsibility but later
recanted. There were reports that they were alive and sold as slaves. The story was even featured on the TV show unsolved mysteries but garnered no solid
I hope you can find something substantial to help lighten the burden you carry, but sadly, I don't think the information is there any longer. I
don't believe innocence lost can be found again.
Someone very early on in this thread said it best, We will one day stand before our maker and reflect on our lives. We will have to answer then for what we
have done and nothing will be hidden..... we will know one day.
