Uh oh, we could end up with a lot of dead bodies in trunks around here!

Or in the food 'coffins' in C4

Raymond Goedecke, one of the Chula Vista family killers, got out on parole and married a woman he'd met through a "jailhouse romance". Not sure of the time frame, but once out, he killed his wife and went back to prison where he died.

Who could have seen that coming? :/

This is some bizarre material. Who murders their grandmother?

I'm curious if any older Wyoming climbers remember a crime in the 1970's ...a member of the climbing community, with another man abducted two sisters, beat and sexually abused them and threw them from a bridge over a deep canyon..

My folks told me of the crime, but I don't recall any names...one of the sisters survived the fall and found a lapse in the canyon walls and crawled out with several skeletal fractures. She identifiedv the men, they were found guilty, but their death sentences were overturned.

The surviving victim had difficulty struggling with the emotional wreckage in her life and jumped from the same bridge years later ...and was killed. A grotesque series of events but factual...

How about a boob thread? Is that justifiable?

Yup, Jennie, Fremont canyon, near Casper. I'll get a link. Clinton McKinzie recounted this in one of his novels.

I first heard that story whole on the bridge where it happened, the first time I climbed there. - that was creepy!

Edit here is a start;

Just a thought, but of those who remembered Luke Stong, how many can forget him?

Thanks for posting the link, Jay.

The newspaper write up is pretty close to what I'd been told...but more detailed.

Jennie & Jay,

'Fall: The Rape and Murder of Innocence in a Small Town':
http://www.amazon.com/Fall-Rape-Murder-Innocence-Small/dp/0882822799

Amazon has photos of the bridge and the cliff and river on the site.

It is a sad and gruesome story. The book is well done. The guys who committed the crime were disgusting.

The climbing there is pretty good, too, wonderful cracks in a pretty setting with camping nearby.

All this of murderers and father-rapers and no talk of lawyers we have climbed with?

I appreciate you posting the Amazon link, Crock. I wasn't aware of the Franscell book.

I ordered a used copy. A frightful story... perhaps we have a desire to understand other humans at both their best and worst.

I would read that if I came across it, but I'm not sure I would pursue it. Grim story, though probably fascinating.

I've climbed with lawyers.

You just have to bear in mind that they are ectothermic.

Only yourself, a mod or an admin could delete your older posts.

Besides your claims, there is no evidense that Luke is anywhere other than the loony bin

Sewellymon - care to explain your "Sierra Madre based sheep buggers" remark earlier in the thread? As a life long resident of that town, i don't recall a Luke strong in town...and in a mile square town, you basically either know, or know of, everybody.

That Fremont Canyon story is really sad. Those animals should never get paroled.

I hope Kennedy was not the climber.

Kenny was a psycho but Luke was in another League.Fish and I used to scratch Kennys prize Vdub with the rivets of our Levis while looking him in the eye.Kenny wouldnt even think of saying anything.But if u looked in Lukes eyes ,u knew he´d kill u.Still I funked with him some.I´ve seen him since the Granny incident.So I cant help but wonder if its true.I kept walkin though he saluted me by name.Any sitings?

It is all muddy in my brain, but to the best of my knowledge:

Luke the Fluke, Granny in trunk, aka Luke Skywalker, line jugger, gear thief. All true.

Ken the psycho, psycho, got killed on the Peanut in Eldo when his rope cut at his waist. Cops were in the parking area looking for him in Eldo as he was wanted for killing a guy in the Buttermilk while bouldering. Shallow grave.

Bullwinkle caught a thief in camp 4.... can't remember the guys name, but he got thumped and litterally dragged through the mud all the way to the cops.

Fight at the base of the Zodiac... Yo hammer used on a guys back. They ended up throwing rocks at Ken the Psycho to keep him back. The guy who got hit with the hammer I can't remember his name, but it starts with an F?? Finnegan? Flarety? Fogerty? Anyway, it was all over fixed lines and gear at the top of the lines and bailing partners.

How does any of this tie into me?

Well..... Luke the Fluke lived out by us sheep buggerers with his Granny, and we have given him rides to and from the crags before. Mistake I tell you. I also went with Dick Cilley and Luke to do an FA in Josh (Cilleys masterpiece The Living Conjunction) and Luke was to bring the gear. He had it all sewn into his sport coat..... we did not have nearly enough. All my rack was in camp, hidden.... Luke goes back early to get more gear. When we all get back, all my rack is gone.... all of it. I think Sewellymon had a climbing class with Luke in it and Karl with a K!!! unreal!!!! Anyway, I get a call from the cops in Yosemite... seems that Luke had a ton of gear and I quote "wanted to be the best climber in the world..." In the stash was my entire rack. Got it back!!!! Mark your gear peoples!!!

Next nutcase: Ken the Psycho is hangin out at JT, as we all were.... He has already told a few people that he will kill them if they touch his car..... we might have been a bit tipsy, but we used to pee on the fender and sit on his car to get rise out of him. Anyway... all my rack goes missing again from camp. Weeks pass and I see Psycho Kenny climbing with one of my biners on his rack. Keen eye here boys.... so I confront him... he says some BS about how he found it etc... no way.... so I go back to his camp when he finishes climbing with a biner chain as a weapon..... he freaks and hops in his car and blow outta there for town... the cops are doing the loop so I send JT's finest to chase him down. They nab his ass and he sings like a canary... some guy he is staying with in town has a mountain of gear in his livingroom... all stolen from JT. I get all my rack back. After this is when he allegedly killed some dude in the Buttermilk.

Moral: always mark your gear and always file a report with the Tool-deJour™™™™ I've got two full racks returned to me. this way

As per my post a week ago, Luke is STILL in Patton.
It was Verified by the Forensic Psych Department at Patton.
