  1. I grew up with Jon Hellyar, he was my first kiss. I only found out a couple of years ago that he was dead I just didn’t know how. this morning your show was on and when I heard that Jon Hellyarhad picked up these two people and then shot to death. At least his death isn’t one of the unsolved murders.

    • Kathy Edgecombe, I would like to get in touch with you. I am the sister of Keryn Barnes, the first admittted murdered victim of Michael and Suzan Carson.
