does anyone remember back in 98 or 99 when a body was found near billy's motel on the side of the road. The police thought it was a hit and run, but nothing was ever really said about it.
It was supposedly a cop that hit the guy. So of course it was covered up.

Janet Lynn Seward (Wallace) was my mother She was killed October 14, 1984, shot point blank range by a shotgun. Her body was exhumed twice during the initial investigation due to lack of evidence collection. As far as I know it is still an unsolved case, probably never to be solved. Here is a link to photos of her for the one who asked: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/812/mymo...

Thank you for being so generous with your mother pictures. I knew her when we were both young we were around 14-16 years of age. The last time I saw your mother was in 1969, we both rode a bus from Ohio to Jellico.when I came in on leave, I was in the military at that time. I was told about her tragic passing. I have talked to law enforcement about her case. It is still a cold case file with TBI. I hope and pray the person who is responsible for this will be caught and soon.

does anyone remember wrote:
I use to work at hardees a couple of summers ago and there use to be this pregnant woman come in all the time bc I gave her free sodas. She was all the time walking by there bc she lived at Jellico Motel. Everyone said she was a prostitute, but it didn't matter to me all I saw was a pregnant woman walking in the heat. Anyways I didnet see her for a few days and then the next thing I heard was that they found her dead in the motel ( I think they said she was hanged) any way the brushed it off as a "suicide" but I found it hard to believe bc she was always talking about how excited she was about having a baby and that she was really trying to turn her life around. I can't think of her name, does anyone remember her?
chasity scaff claxton she was a friend and we once was married in the same family she lived with me for awhile when i lived i Jellico and she started staying at the motel ,I know she never killed herself she was so excited about her baby she was homless and was trying to get her life together , I still would like to know who killed her and why , she wasnt a prostitute i want say that she didnt do that at one time because she was homless and was hungery , and Im not going to judge her for what she felt she had to to do to make it ,, but does that really give someone the right to kill her and her unborn child???? she had two other daughters that who ever took her life took there Mother from them ,I hope some day who ever cut Chasity's life short will pay for what they have done RIP Chass and may God punish who ever took those childrens mother from them Chass we still Love and miss you...

I have contacted local newspapers and TV stations.No one one was interested in Following up. I believe the case is too cold or remember it happen in Campbell county so who cares out friends and family. I have done everything I know how to, to get this case moving again maybe we could start a reward for information that leads to a conviction?

What about John Denver "Big D" Smith. One of them Ramsey's killed him and I have never heard a word about him ever spending any time in jail for it. It happened down next to Kensee Hollow
He was tried & released on self defence, cause "Big D" had a gun himself.

Yes this is a shame that Ned Smiddy would cover up a crime that happened then! Have you gave it a thought about who worked for him and there lifes living with what they did.... At that time if they were single or married and talked to there wife's or ex-wife's for that matter! You never know and it could be someone that walks right by you everyday still, who to this day worked under Ned?

A man that worked for Tommy Heatwole not long after Carl David Lamb was murdered told me that Jim Davis (dead now) was the one that killed Carl David, he also said that Barbara Huddleston (dead now too I think) helped set up Carl David to where Jim could get in the back door of that trailer that he lived in that belonged to Clarence King. That's what I was told anyway

The girl from Hardees was married and rumored to be having an affair with either a jellico or cambell county cop at the time she was murdered and thats why everyone said it was kept hush hush it was like they never tried to find out who did it.

It was supposedly a cop that done it. I garantee if someone contacts one of the coldcase shows they would solve it. Most people from around that area has heard the rumor of who done it.

Barbara told me Tommy beat him to death, or maybe just ordered the killing as he was selling drugs for Tommy and ripping him off. Tommy had bad luck in the end.

Janet Seward (The girl from Hardees) was not married at the time of her murder. She had a relationship going with 3 different men, one being more serious than the others. Personally I don't know if one was a cop or not never seen him in his uniform if he was. One man was form Newcomb, he had nothing to do with it and had been cleared after being investigated. The second man she was seeing was from outside Oak Ridge, and the third was from Jellico. If anyone has any pertinent information I would be very happy to here from them as my sister and I have looked for closure on her death for a good many years now.
