someone who knew him wrote:
Rob Melton died April 12, 2008. He had become a Christian while in prison and after being paroled tried to live his life as such and gave back to his community. I knew him as a child and sometimes adults get caught up in a world they do not really understand it is too late and make decisons that they regret deeply. Knowing Rob I would say that he wanted to play with the "big boys" but when it came right down to it tried to get out. But it was too late and I do believe his own life was at stake then. There is not a price that mankind could put on Rob that was worse than what he carried in his soul because of what he was involved in.
Whoever you are thank you for the positive feedback on Rob.I know Rob better than anybody on here.He paid for what he did ten fold.He never forgot what he did.Dying at 45 is a death penalty in itself.Nobody won in this senseless act

Does anyone ever remember a story about a man getting murdered at the Motel in Steele and being put in a large drum of some kind
Yeah I remember that if its the same crime. This one guy got into it with another over some money for beer. Guy killed the other and cut him up and disposed of the body. Never found the body but found brain matter and blood on the walls. Is that the one? Guy is still in prison because there was a witness, his girlfriend.

Broadway Music was a vending machine company - Bo Young owned it at one time - Don't know anything about its operation, but they pretty much controlled the vending machine business in Pemiscot county

The person you are asking about is most likely the Jim Green noted in the following. The following is the first paragraph of a lengthy (13 Page) article about the assassination of Martin L. King.

I went to high school with Green in Caruthersville. I would characterize him in the simplest of terms as a “wannabe”… more specifically, he wanted to be a tough guy, a criminal of Mafia level criminal activity. I am not a psychologist, but it may be that he could be classified as a delusional psychopath. It was clear to me as a teenager in high school that he was not quite right.

The FULL Feature Story
"MLK Murder Was a Government Plot"
Former CIA participant says he was part of it, Raoul identified as FBI
Agent
by Pat Shannan

New evidence has surfaced in the 1968 Martin Luther King Jr. murder case,
supplied by an insider who claims to have been part of a "hit team" that
had come out of the "Missouri Mafia" headquartered in the town of
Caruthersville, a small town in the boot heel section of that state.
In a yet-to-be-published book, former Missouri County Deputy Jim Green
reveals his assigned role in the conspiracy, the name of the actual
triggerman, and the long-suspected involvement of J. Edgar Hoover and the
FBI. Green also believes that he possesses the actual murder weapon, which
he personally secreted away only hours after the murder.
"Jim Green is telling the truth," says Lyndon Barsten, an astute
researcher of the case over the past decade. "I have no doubt whatsoever.
The pieces he has supplied fit perfectly and could not have come from
someone who was not there." Indeed they do fit, and it is all backed up by
FBI documentation derived by Barsten through numerous FOIA requests.
