  1. Is this going to be opened again? I just got through reading the book “Monster” written by Steve Jackson. Why don’t they look closer at Thomas Luther for these murders?

  3. Allan,

    Do you mean Thomas Luther? They HAVE looked at him for this. From what I heard, they still are looking at him. I am betting you recently watched Sensing Murder on this case. That show does not present everything about the cases they show. They show it from the perspective of psychics.

  4. This is a tragic story. I hope they do find Annette’s and Barbara Jo’s murderer. Someone out there know who the killer is and if so, please come forward. Their families need closure.

    God bless,

  5. I just read the book “Monster”, and I too believed that Luther was probably the killer, but the epilogue in the book said that they tested the blood on Bobbi Jo’s mitten and it was not hers, nor Thomas Luther’s blood…. So pretty much the only way he did it, is if he had an accompliace….Which I think is out of his character when he kills, unless he had help dumping the bodies but I don’t think there was enough time to have help after the killings… I hope these cases get solved. I first remember hearing about this case years and years ago on Unsolved Mysteries……

  6. The fact that they had one girls sock at the other girls crime scene coul d account for the blood on Bobbi Jo’s mitten, they never did test to see if it was Annette’s blood, which it very well could have been. For everyone who has read this book, I don’t know if you truly understand how scarry Thomas Luther is. Having met him, I though he seemed like a really nice guy, this was shortly after Cher’s murder. She was only 3 years older than me, her father worked with my mother. The Erebout boys went to schoold with me, and when Byron was out on bond for the attempted murder he committed, I got into a head on collission with him. I am happy to see that people are still outraged by this whole mess. Being a first hand witness to the melee that ensured during this period in time, it still breaks my heart that TL was not punished harsher than he was. And Judge Munch is the biggest a-hole I have ever met, even his staff can’t stand him.

      • Dear James, Are you by any chance related to this family? Why else would you defend them, when they are obviously so involved in illegalities? This case WILL be solved – it may take another 20 years – but they will all be brought to justice, either by the law or by God……

  9. Does anyone know anything about Pamela Dee Powers Eerebout, aka Haley Chace? I believe she is the mother of Byron Powers Eerebout McNamara. I can’t understand why they have so many names. Yes, I believe they are scamming widows, and they are very frightening; especially after reading “Facing the Monster”. Kindly advise if you know of this woman. Thank you!

  10. The unfortunate part is that Thomas Luther had such an influence & created so much fear he ended up taking innocent people and their credibility down with him. Everyone knows he killed many women (some may never be known). With his years in the joint- you don’t think he had time to build a web of like mind people? My money is on him and his manulipative style getting others dug in just as deep! It’s good to put things to rest (hopefully it will all come out and those families can be at peace -as much as one can loosing a loved one like that to a monster). Just because people got caught in his web of deceit does not make them guilty or scary- just ignorant to see the whole picture and who they are truely dealing with. There were a lot of innocent people who got totally drug through the gutters and all they did was stand by and fight for the people they cared about. I heard there may be another book. But this one is from the perspective of one of the people who got drug down into the mudd, judged, and criticized just for being in the middle of a mess they stumbled upon without knowing it! Not all of the comments from the book are accurate! Some just lead you to the wrong conclusions and still effect the innocent bystanders to this day! Just remember unless you know something first hand- its not a fact its only an assumption or your own opinion.

  11. Well I knew the Eerebout boys and had a few run ins with their mother- she didn’t approve of her son and me. I for one would not be shocked by any scheme they’d come up with. It has always been about the ol mighty dollar with that family.

    • Beware women- in a relationship, married or not (it’s never stopped them before), stay clear of the Eerebout/powers/McNamara (whatever they are calling themselves) boys- the only know how to use people. You’ll only be one in a long line of women chewed up and spat out once they have taken all they can.

      • I knew the boys! Funny you assume Byron, maybe because one wifes was Tracy, don’t mean ANY of the boys didn’t hook up with another Tracy. Those boys did everything from steal to deal to make a buck and didn’t care who they hurt- just look at the collateral damage just from associating with any of them and the company they keep. Honestly you seem worried!
