I realize that I don’t know all you guys. I was active in the Morbid N’ Macabre Facebook groups, and some of you found your way here from other places. So let’s do a little meet and greet/get to know you kind of thing. How about tell me your name, basics about you, and the most notorious crimes from your area. Or if you don’t have any, maybe tell me which case got you hooked on true crime. I look forward to getting to know you all!
My name is Kelly. I’m 44, and I have two grown kids. I have known Crystal, the creator of this site over 5 years now. Maybe 6? She’s awesome and I am proud to call her my best friend!💜
I live in a little town in Tennessee. Sadly we aren’t known for anything positive. It’s known as the birthplace of the Ku Klux Klan. It was founded on our town square. Other than that, there are a few well known horrific crimes. Just after I graduated from high school, a boy a grade or two above me got into an argument over money with his Uncle. The Uncle chased him down the sidewalk, right in town with a chainsaw and nearly decapitated him. That same year (1995) at a high school in my county another boy walked in the school with a rifle. He shot 2 teachers and a student before he was tackled and the gun wrestled away. His name was Jamie Rouse. Two of the victims died, one of the victims, a teacher survived. I remember how shocking it was then. Because in those days school shootings were almost unheard of. I had never considered the possibility when I went to school (I graduated the year before). Kids these days don’t have the luxury of feeling safe. It’s sad. Another case happened about ten years ago. At the same high school where the shooting took place, there was a student that had become jealous of another guy that had gone out with his girlfriend. This happened on Milky Way Rd here, it’s named that because Frank Mars (candy company owner) had a mansion and a farm there. Anyway just down the road from the mansion lived a mom and two sons. One of the sons was about 10 years old, and the other was the high school student that the girlfriend was messing with. Anyway the boyfriend and a friend of his showed up at their house. They shot them, stabbed them, and slit their throats. Then they set the place on fire. But they were really dumb about it, and used gas to set it alight, which actually set one of the murderers on fire. They had to get medical help immediately so they were instantly caught. I could name so many more, but I will add just one more. The Bondurant twins. Serial killer twins Pete and Pat. They actually killed my mother’s cousin along with some others. They were featured on an Evil Twins episode. So tell me what’s happened in your neck of the woods!
