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.).

Serial Killer: Gary Michael Hilton

Hilton victims

Known Victims
Meredith Emerson, 24 [Blood Mountain, Georgia]
Cheryl “Sherri” Hodges Dunlap, 46 [Leon Sinks Geological Area, Apalachicola National Forest, Florida]
John Bryant, 80 [Nantahala National Forest, North Carolina]
Irene Bryant, 84 [Pisgah National Forest, North Carolina]

Gary Michael Hilton was sentenced to life for the murder of Meredith Emerson. He was then sentenced to death for the murder of Cheryl Dunlap. The he received 2 consecutive federal life sentences. Since there is no parole in the federal system, those are LWOP. However, the death sentence trumps all other sentences. These are for his known victims. I do not know if there are more. He has not said. Gary Michael Hilton may not be a young man (he is 66 years old), but he caused enough sorrow and pain as anyone younger than him. He deserves his death sentence and I hope it is carried out soon. The families of these victims deserve to be able to move on. Justice is needed for these victims.
