Suspect Arrested For 1975 Murder

A suspect in a 33-year old Ohio murder case hiding out in Kentucky is now in jail.

Police say 59-year old Billy Crisp turned himself in at the state police post in Pikeville late Thursday.

Police believe Crisp killed his brother-in-law, Woodrow Perroud, at an Ohio rest area in 1975.

Police believe he's been hiding out for the past few weeks in abandoned coal mines.

Crisp is now in the Pike County Detention Center.

    Ohio: I was in court yesterday and heard the evidence and what the investigators said, so maybe you will look stupid...

    Friend of Crisp: I would be careful what you are saying. It is obvious you have not been kept up to date w/ your facts. Some of the people on this message board have spoken to the police themselves and know the concrete evidence. So U MAY LOOK SO STUPID WHEN HE IS PROVEN GUILTY.

    JUST BECAUSE CRISPS TURNED HIMSELF IN DONT MEAN HE KILLED PERROUD. HE ALSO COULD BE HELPING SOMEONE. I HATE PEOPLE THAT JUDGE PEOPLE AND THEY DONT EVEN KNOW THEM. JUST CAUSE YOU HEAR WHAT THE NEWS AND THE NEWS PAPER DONT MEAN THEY ARE PROVEN GUILTY THEY THINK HE DID IT BUT THEY HAVE TO DO SOME PROVEN.. SO THE BEST THING FOR THE ONES THAT JUDGE CRISPS..U MAY LOOK SO STUPID WHEN THEY PROVE HIM NOT GUILTY

    So, no one has any comments about this. Very surprising. I for one am glad he is behind bars.

    Eye for eye and tooth for tooth would stop a-lot of crime in the US, I can't help but wonder if the young man killed by whom ever had time to beg the killer to spare his life and if he had time to call on GOD, the guilty person in this crime has had all these years to make things right and guilt appears effident as it seems Crisp had been missing why run unless there is guilt, there is nothing to fear when you know your heart and mind are clean, we can all talk about the GOOD OLE BOYS but as the saying goes your sins will find you out
