I knew Ted Walker. I know Coulters Hole. Ted is a very unfortunate and mentally deficient man. He was good with mechanics and would help anyone. He was easily pushed around and manipulated. He understood right and wrong. The Ted I knew, I never would have guessed that he had anything to do with this. He wasn't the smartest nor the luckiest nor the cleanest, but he was friendly, courteous and helpful. I have no doubt that he was involved in this. I don't know why he was involved. Another human tragedy in a dying little town.

I am trying to find out more about the witness that indentified one of the perpetrators. Was it Walker the person identified and he then led them to the O’Brien’s? There was mention somewhere that the witness saw the person on a television interview. After following the case for years, why did it take seven years after the arrest of James O'Brien to link him to the murder? Not like there are a whole lot of kidnappers running around in a town of 11,000. Sounds like the police got lucky to solve the case when it should have been closed years earlier. Thank goodness the family finally got closure. As for the O’Brien’s, why they are on death row is beyond me. We tolerate way too much as a society.

emily, i used to know a woman whom the police questioned. her name was gervasoni, i was wondering her role if any in the case?
The only reason(s) Gervasoni(s)were questioned. Were because Richard Gervasoni belonged to the so called bikers the Iron Coffins.Who shortly after the Howe crime at Coulters Hole.The bikers (Richard) beat two people at Coulters Hole.

The Witness who called the police on the the night of !0-27-1992 was a Dan Paden. He called the police from a nearby home of Kathy Glass and John Wagner her mother Pat.

I am the witness you speak of.
Unless you suply me with a good reason to know about me, you dont need to know about me.
That crime is finaly solved, the perps are where they belong, And her family finaly has peace and closure.
Any one out there with any ideas of giving this guy info on me, think twice before doing so.
I dont know this guy, If he had a legal reason to know about me he would not be asking on here, I am not hard to find for those with a legal reason for doing so, He shows up anywere near my family and I will bring charges not only against him but against the one who gave the info aswell.
I have my own family to protect now and I will do so to the death no mater what it takes.
I trust no one and I dont ask questions more than once, keep that in mind if you come snooping around me.

Mr. Sibble
Get your facts straight before you put them out there.
I am Dan Paden.
The same Dan Paden who called police that night.
I know Both John Wagner, and Cathy Glass Personaly.
John, and Cathy neither one lived any were near that part
of town at that time.
John And Cathy were NOT together at that time, they didnt even
know each other at that time.
I also know who John was with at that time, He was married to
the woman who is now my wife, and it is NOT Cathy.
My wife knows were John was that year because Hers and Johns youngest was born that year.
My wife also knows who Cathy was with that year and it was not John.
I am forwarding a copy of my responce to your post, as well as everything you posted on here to both John and Cathy and while I am at it I will forward a copy to law enforcement since you took it upon yourself without my permission to put info out there about me, to someone whom for all we know is family or friend of the persons I testified against and who probably has criminal intentions towards me or mine.

Everyone needs to just chill out. All I was wondering is who indentified the perpetrators after seeing one of them (Walker???) years later during a TV news interview. I don't think it would have been hard to pull these guys out of a lineup or police photos. The way the crime was committed made it evident that it was someone local. I was just intrigued that a "chance" sighting during a TV news interview helped solve the case. Of course we are all happy they are rotting in jail. But my point was that these guys should have been caught years earlier. They committed similar kidnapping crimes in 1995 only three years after the Howe murder. It’s not like there are many kidnappers running around in Oil City. I was curious about the series of events that led to the identification of Walker and ultimately the O’Briens……………… that was it.

Sorry about your family's misfortune. It would be horrible to accused of such a crime. Glad to hear that James is being tormented by other inmates; he did his own share of phony self-rightous tormenting while locked up in SRCF-Mercer.
