I remember the murder of the young couple on skyline drive in about 1960. That's another murder unsolved in Ashland.

I think it's great that you are interested in this case. Also its great to see anybody get out of this area and prosper!! Good for you James ! I'll will definitely check out your books. Congrats on your career. Good luck with your investigation. I would love to read about this. I have lived here all my life, went to blazer , and have never heard of this,( btw I'm 37). Good luck bro !!

Thanks for all the supportive comments. After thinking about it a couple days, I think the best way to go about it is to first read the trial transcript.

Interested, are you able to get it?

I've been in touch with a journalist at the ADI, I'll ask him if he can help me pull articles about the case. I'll also try to find John. I suspect this may be difficult if not impossible.

I think people should realize that we can try, but most likely, nothing will come of this. It was probably a hopelessly bungled investigation and too late to unravel the mistakes. You never know, but I'm not doing this in the interest of writing a book, just in the remote hopes of bringing some closure to a few people.

At the very least though, if we get far enough for there to be a story to tell, I'll write an article and publish it somewhere so everyone can know what happened with our attempt to find the truth, whether we succeed or not.

#231 Nov 20, 2010
Ok already....THANK YOU for posting on the website. This lets me know at least you know how to put a site together. You could still end up being a poser, though :)
Being a crime novelist, Im sure that you can understand that things like that DO happen.

Whatever, let's be clear. I don't care what you think or don't think, what you know or don't know. I have nothing to prove to you. In my eyes, you're a poisonous toad, an ignorant wretch, a zero of a human being. I won't respond to you again. Be a good little redneck . Run along now and piss off, to whatever rock you crawled out from under.

got under the old thin skin? Seems like you would be more interested in effective communication on a gossip forum, to show sincere effort. Instead, you resort to name calling.

Her husband owned the VW dealership, which closed shortly after her death.Poor Mrs Niesel managed to crawl a short distance before she died. Her son witnessed the whole thing.

I checked out his website. It is legitimate. I would like to start a research group in this area. There are a few unsolved murders in this area. Is anyone interested?

Only two people have e-mailed me saying they would like to try to put some effort into learning more about the Niesel murder. If you're interested, e-mail me at jamesthompsonauthor@gmail.com. I'll form an e-mail circle and dedicate some space from one of my web pages to keep gathered info.

Some of the people who peruse this page are mean-spirited jackasses who just like to heckle. I'm reserving the right to decide who may or may not particate via electronic media that originates with me. Meaning, I can password protect and shut you out. So, if you're one of those folks, don't waste your time harassing the people in this project.

Best, James Thompson
