    Please remember when leaving a comment on my blog that all comments are subject to the blog owners discretion. I do believe in freedom of speech, however, that right is not absolute. Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.). Have respect for those who don't do text messaging or other lingo. 5 - ALL COMMENTS LEFT BY COMMENTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY DO NOT CONSTITUTE FACTS.

  1. I believe an attorney from Columbus, OH named Brett Adams and his business partner Bob Cseplo are connected to this crime.


  2. I worked for Dick Woods — what about Sam Perone — body full of blood found in his store and bullet holes in the wall.


  3. Dick was in business with Brett Adams (Big Ball).


  4. Those of us that grew up with Dick know that he always a little on the shady side and probably brought this on himself. We all would like to know what happened, and know at least at one time the police were pretty certain who did it, but could not come up with the evidence to prosecute.


  5. I and Dick’s sister-in-law visited with Dick and his wife and left to return to MA 2 days before Dick’s disappearance. Dick had confided in me that he was very nervous around Sam Perone as Mr Perone had once stopped his car near a field, pulled a gun and told Dick that he could kill him and no one would ever know. I asked him why he dealt with the guy and Dick said that he (Perone) repped certain furniture lines that Dick needed in his business. As far as I know, this is all old info. Too bad. Dick didn’t deserve that ending.


  6. Why can’t they arrest Perone?


  7. Sam looks like a criminal — he and that sinister looking mustache. Authorities should investigate him immediately. Brett Adams is a slime ball as well.


  8. I dunno, this case still doesnt make sense. Vengeful, murderous furniture salesmen?? I don’t buy it one bit. How about just a typical I-71 carjacking? I seriously doubt the world of industrial furniture is that cut-throat….


  9. Anybody have any thoughts?


  10. Where exactly did Sam Perone disappear to? The police should question him, along with Brett Adams. We deserve answers.


  11. Sad commentary when one of your children find this crap on the Internet. I understand most people who write such irresponsible comments have no life to begin with but please do some research prior to spouting off about an issue which affects families and are defamatory.

    Tyler and Stephen Pierce, who called me a slime ball. My office is located at 5003 Horizons Drive in Columbus Ohio. Please visit my office and share your defamatory statements with me personally. It is not necessary to hide behind a screen name. Show some courage to back up your statements.


  12. you are a coward bret. you kill innocent people


  13. Coward is defined by a person who leaves such a comment with a fake screen name.


  14. God knows who you are and you will pay when the time comes. I am certain of that and I am not a God freak, but I believe when justice is not done here, it will be there


  15. Oh and BTW, Richard will be waiting for you


  16. Sounds like we are finally getting answers as of 8/18/2014.


  17. I knew Dick in HS. He was not a shady person, only a driven, caring family man. Please solve this mystery, someone has to pay and should not be free.
