You know everyone isn't as smart as you or I assume you are because you called her out. She just wants to tell someone or the authorites, what she thinks may be helpful. Why does it matter about her spelling? Are you the board monitor? Come on, you don't know her background, maybe it's the best she can do I have read several threads on here that have been far worst...

I knew Sue and Raymond and I knew Jimmy Childers. I used to babysit for Sue when I was a teenager. It was so sad that she was murdered. It is also sad that neither murder has been solved and Sue's body has never been found. I just hope both of these cases will be solved.

I agree it would be great if they solve them. Are the police actively working on these cases or are they cold file? Where has that West Virginia Justice gone too?

Sorry!! Your info is incorrect.. The book that you are referring to says that the testing was inconclusive and that they could not prove the remains were of Sue Roop.. Even though many things found with the body (watch, ring, clothing) appear to be from the late 70's in the wintertime.. the DNA and mitDNA test weren't able to prove that it was her.. They are thankfully still looking for ways to determine if the remains were Sue Roop or someone else..

watch and rings, clothing can tell a lot. the remains found, could be very difficult to match to sue. if anything of value was found, test to a relative would have to be conducted to determine a match. i assume they didn't have any samples from sue before her death to compare these findings with... very interesting and difficult situation.

why do you call that response a joke? if in fact he is a marshall, most likely he is chasing fugitives or assisting other agencies at their request to assist investigations. he could be one of the court assigned guys but the marshalls don't just investigate like the local agencies. they have to be contacted and requested but they do come when you request. it's very possible he is watching these case's and could have some interest in them. go for it mr marshall, hope you have some luck. i suggest you start by contacting this lady, good starting place.

No one working on these cases are going to posting "help wanted" on this gossip column. Get real! I have known several agents and there is no way in Cuba that anyone of these individuals will go on sites such as this as ask that we supply information to them through methods using this site or any other site.

We were actually contacted by someone who runs this site and they told us about this forum. I visit this particular forum daily reading and going through the names of both victims and the accused suspects. I appreciate everyone who is trying to cooperate. Thank you Bill but I am a woman and yes I was called upon to help investigate these unsolved murders/cold case files.

Would like to say thank you for believing in the Roop family. I consider Sue my aunt and always will. Ellen Roop was my aunt. Married into the Roop family. If we had proof that Raymond Roop killed Sue...we would walk 100,000 miles in 180 degree weather barefoot to get it to the athoriries. Do I believe Raymond Roop is responsible...Yes I do! Just wish we had proof! Atleast he is in prison where he will remain for the rest of his life and will have plenty of time to think about what he did...and I hope it haunts him every single day of his miserable life!!
I know Sue's daughter Suzie and I know for fact that Raymond is not in prison right now. he lives in Charleston as we speak, walking free. I have meet the man once and I think he is the Devil himself.I would love to see him pay for what he did to Sue Roop.

I does not matter if magnasia can spell his name correctly or not.I believe what magnasia is saying. Don't judge someone by how they can spell. There are a lot of people in this state that can't even read and they are very trust worthy .

You should speak with Lee Jones about the cold blooded murder of Jimmy, he was getting close and then was set up and sent to prison unjustly. I grew up in Gauley Bridge, but I have not lived there for years.As for the murder at the hotel, Jim Jarvis was the murderer but was never convicted or payed for his crime.I did not know Sue, but I remember when she came up missing.

Jones had alot of info on childers. it was a disgrace to this state on how jones was set-up. jones never closed the case from what i have heard however once he was out of the picture the state police (shelton) closed the case calling his death an accident and guess who ended up with all the insurance money - legg. but legg wasn't the only one that benefited from jones going to prison. shelton ended up with a heap of money from legg. ruling the dealth as an accident enabled legg and shelton to benefit much more of the insurance money. ruling it as a murder little insurance money would have been given out. so now we all can be blamed for jones being sent to prison - afterall who in that town backed him. chicken faced citizens just set back and allowed this to happen. shame on that whole town! what is going on now within the police force the town earned that right. everyone knows that while jones was on the force nothing and i do mean nothing like what is going on ever took place. town deserves what the current police are handing out. before too long it will be a ghost town with only the seniors living there and no businesses. yea the government and its people deserve what is being handed out. you are still chicken faced citizens that still cannot stand up for what is right. you would not defend jones and you won't defend the town now. you all including the government are nothing but a bunch of low-down chicken-faced people. you deserve having a town that will soon close down.

Hey what about the mad butcher. He cut up alot of people and this one was never solved either.
The "mad Butcher" is a man named Hugh Montgomery. And yes. Same Montgomery's the town is named after. Dude is actually in a Montgomery year book. I have that book. He is or was incarcerated in a mental hospital around Dayton. If you remember Montgomery went missing on a head count at the hospital and alot of rumors flew that he was coming back to Fayette to be a problem again. Wanna say 89. Your best source for info on this is the former sheriff Bill Laird. Bill has many more definite facts concerning Hugh Montgomery. Back in the day it was rumored that the Montgomery's had enough pull to get Hugh in a hospital instead of the death penalty. Yep. WV had the death penalty back then. Melody Bragg, not George is a good source also. She's in Mt Hope.
