I'm right there with you. He murdered my brother in 1979! This because he had confessed to my brother that he had killed a girl!
May God hear my prayers and those of other West's victim! I would love to pull the switch on the demon spawn!

Hi Desperate. Sorry for the delay. I'm surprised to here that West actually had a victim that lived. I'm not sure how I can help you but if there is anything that I can do let me know. My brother was Charles Eaker, ake Pee-Wee, aka Sledge, aka Charlie. There is not one day that goes by that I don't miss him!
Let me know what you need. If I can help I will. If I can't maybe one of my brothers can.

SERIOUSLY!!!! TAMPERING WITH PHYSICAL EVIDENCE...SURE THE DEMON SPAWN SHOT HIM IN THE FACE SO THE GUY WOULDN'T BE EASILY ID'D AFTER WEST HID HIS BODY LIKE HE DID MS. SONYA'S!
POSSESSION OF A HANDGUN! WHY IN THE HELL IS HE WALKING AROUND WITH A GUN ANYWAY?!?!? HE'S A CONVICTED MURDERER!
I HAD HEARD THAT HIS DAD SIGNED OVER HIS FARM TO BLANKENSHIP TO GET THE MURDER CHARGES FOR MY BROTHER DOWN TO MANSLAUGHTER...NOW I BELIEVE IT!!!!!!!!
May God forgive me for my hatred right now! I just can't believe they can continue to let a serial killer walk free!This is stuff a best selling horror flick is made from! Maybe I'll write a book and name it "how to be a serial killer and get away with it" the life and deaths William David West's victims!!!!!!!!!!
Guess I'll have to start packing again now...

You hit the nail on the head!! That's exactly what he is!! And has been for over 30 some odd years! I guess now that he's gotten away with murder again we all should take a very close look at that demons face so that if and when we see him we can run in the opposite direction ....FAST!!!!!! I am not joking!

The paper states that he is still incarcerated on 500,000 bond...(3-7-12) surely he will not be released??? I fill for you and your family so heart breaking... I have known David my whole life and he is a man WITHOUT a soul!

Maybe they will put him away for good,I know all your family and grew up pretty close to ya'll,I remember well when he killed Pee Wee and basically got away with it..Maybe a little country justice is in order if he gets off this time....

Oh he'll get off he always does. I at one time had thought that Pee Wee was the second of David West's victims. Turns out I may have been mistaken. He may very well have been the 3rd.
As long as Blankenship keeps letting him slide the body count will keep going up!!!!!!

I'm in shock!! besides, Charles Eaker, then the second one he meant to die, that lived, Sonya Bradley, Joseph Gaskill, thats the tip of the iceberg. When in Florida he almost beat a woman to death and now FL. police are reopening cases of 3 women that were murdered in the same block he lived on, i think it was Ocala,FL. Need to check the deaths, suicides in Lyon county, all covered up. Who he worked for has always got him out of everything, visited him in jail, take care of my "BOY" anything he needs, visited him at the farm until they finally told him that a man in his position shouldnt be there, he threw a fit. someone paid the high dollar lawyer in Paducah(Coiner) with 4 working under him to perfect the appeal to get him out when he was in the federal pen. Who put up the $50,000 bond in Evansville, Indiana right after Sonya Bradley was murdered, him James Jackson and Laura Waggoner Hale went there to steal a black camero, got caught. bought out of that.Thanksgiving 2002, when Brent White knocked on his door, david barracaded himself in, "who was the fat, grey haired man in a jogging suit running down the road to get to the apt. and his "BOY"? state police threatened to arrest him if he didnt get out of their way. David isnt his only BOY that takes care of all his dirty deeds,Drugs, Death, Dope. Been said he wants to retire so his daughter can take his place, shes just like him, you will know shortly who HE is, we got some good Detectives working hard and they know it all. All the Evil lives are coming to a halt and then you will know what woman NOT to vote for when he retires or goes to jail. God is stepping in, karma will visit you all harshly.

David west needs to realize hes not invincible and hes not the only person who knows how to pull a trigger. One of these days hes going to murder the wrong persons loved one. Then lets see if his" BOY" looks for him as hard as Sonya's family has looked for her.

Sounds like he could have been involved in David Gray's suicide case that was later changed to a murder case.

He once told me in detail about the murder of one man that he shot in a car. He said there were two other people there. It was the single most chilling moment of my life. He showed no remorse calling the man a "fat bastard" at one point. He's evil.
