    The police can't release any information because they forgot that they needed to investagate a double murder. They found Robert's body on Wed. but waited until Friday to gather the edivence. They didn't even tape off the crime area. Great job on behalf of our Sheriff's Office in Elliott Co.

    I also would like to know why there isn't more being reported about these incidents. It barely got mentioned on WSAZ - it was treated like an afterthought. It seems more than a coincidence that these two men were found dead within days of each other.

    The people need to Know that Chris and Robert Boggs were murdered at the same time, and they need to know the connection , also we do still have a muderer on the loose, people are panicing, they don't know who the can trust. I am sorry for the families of these victims. I hope that they catch whoever did thise terrible thing.

    I just read on WSAZ Website Comments about Robert Boggs being found dead in his home Jan 2 that this Chris Leadingham was living with Robert Boggs, and has been missing since Robert Boggs was found dead! Why is none of this news??

    Why havent the police give any information out to anybody? The family is greiving over the loss of a son, grandson, brother, friend and much more. No one knows either the Time of death of either of the 2 men killed, they havent even been told the day of either of the deaths. Being a resident of Elliott County for my whole life, you have never heard anything so obserd in your whole life. you here about people getting robbed or something. But you never here about two people killed in a week in Elliott County. And if that isnt enough, there is almost no news coverage or anything released that the family could have to be a little bit comforted, all they know is a member of there family has been taken and they know nothing about it, not even when he was killed or why.
