    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. NOR IS THE BLOG OWNER RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYONE'S OPINIONS OR FEELINGS. STATEMENTS MADE AS COMMENTS ARE OPINIONS, GIVEN FREELY BY THE COMMENTORS. If you have a question or problem with this, please feel free to email me (there is a link to my email above).

  1. The woman (Kathryn) murdered was my mother. I am the one who found her the following morning after this happened!

    • Richie,
      I am Debbie Wolfe. I was your mom’s friend and your babysitter at this time. I just now ran across these articles. I have been trying to reach your aunt Susan Bird or Byrd for some time now. Can you email me?

    • Richard, I am so very sorry for your loss. I cannot imagine the shock you must have received that dreadful day, which I am sure that you still carry with you. You, your mother, and her other family and friends have been in my daily prayer since I first learned of this terrible crime. I pray sincerely that she finds peace and eternal rest, and that you find peace as well, and the happiness that she would have wanted for you. Good luck to you. Mary Frances Feord

  2. My mom raised the baby that was taken from Kathryn. His name is William Hooks III and he lives in Los Angeles, California. He knows he has 3 siblings but never meet them.

    • I just came across these postings regarding Wm Hooks and Kathy. I was a friend of both and I remember Bill (father) and have often wondered how Bill Jr and Bill III were doing. Kathy was a friend of mine and I was pregnant at the same time all of this happened. Thanks, Debbie Wolfe

  3. That is not the document for Norma Jean Jackson Armistead. The dates are all wrong and Norma Jean was never legally married to the man, Charles Armistead.

    • JessyJ,

      If the information in the divorce document is incorrect or invalid, you will need to contact the VA courts to have it corrected. But you will need absolute proof, not just your word.

  4. I was only telling you so that you could correct your blog. The man that Norma had the affair with was a Charles Armistead, not a William P. Armistead. They were never married. She was only using his last name.
