What about the INfamous? ex. Mary Lynn who was convicted of conspiracy to commit murder and never spent a day in jail. This case received national attention when her daughters were invited to speak on a nationally televised talk show. Their attorney was the son of Bonnie Sorrel of Doniphan. Last I heard he is now a Federal Prosecuter in Cape.
Where are the hit men now?

Tip Potter has a karate studio in Arizona. Chuck Norris visited Doniphan a few times to test people for black belts. He and Tip were close friends and he would stop in to visit them and the studio which was part of his United Fighting Arts Federation chain. I met him once and I have pictures of that encounter. That was in 1982. I remember because that was the year I graduated from DHS. He was a really nice guy and had only been in a couple of movies at that time. He later became a movie start and tv star and internet icon.

Hate to even mention it but Stanley Lingar became somewhat famous when he received the death penalty in a criminal case. That went nationwide on the news for numerous reasons. I remember him being in some of my classes at DHS but I didn't know him at all. The murder he was arrested for was a great shock and rocked our little town to the core.

sorry made a type-o. kieth is famous and frm doniphan. not necessarily famous for a good reason though. i have seen ray joe's book at hastings entertainment store in the bluff on numerous occasions. the book is interesting he left alot out. he focused alot on his direct line of heritage-understandable,the family has always been here though.
