  1. I found a website called kprc history.Facebook. lots of old pictures on it. The only picture that looks like the man has the name Alan parcel.I don't remember him but so many people have been on the news at channel 2.
  2. I just found it. Aug 19'1983 in the chronicle. It was shumate reality at 16007 memorial. I remember this on the news
  3. There are so many old cases out there. We need to start a page about this and see if people reply with stuff they know about and remember. I myself would like to hear about things from 40s and 50s.
  4. True. I hate to see these high rises come in. Its starting to look like new York. I guess I worry about air planes hitting them cause they fly so low before landing at easterwood.
  5. I've been watching this place get built. I only hope that when cars crash at that bad intersection that they don't end up in the buildings.every one tries to drive so fast to get thru the lights and there is always a wreck.
  6. The one I remember was after he did the news and was on his way home. The wreck was on the freeway. I saw it on 13 the next day.
  7. I remember him being interviewed while he was in the hospital. I still think that she should have gotten the same treatment after all she's been there a long time also.
  8. I am glad that she is ok. I guess 13 didn't care enough to do a story on it. They showed Dave wards wreck a few years back. She has been at channel 13 a long time too just like Dave.
  9. There was a del taco on dacoma or magnum near 290 in 82. I also liked sals pizza near 290 on Antoine. Worked at charlies hamburgers and the champs on 290 and bingle.
  10. The video said April 2014. Don't know how long he has been there. He did a good job of warning people. The video only lasted about 2 minutes.
  11. Just saw a tornado video on you tube of gene giving live coverage. It was Cbs 42 in Birmingham Alabama. It was very detailed and he was calm telling it.
  12. thank you. its been so long ago.i just hate it when i cant remember the name of something even though i drove by it almost every day.
  13. does anyone remember the old car dealership that sat out there on 290 north of town back in the 80s? what was its name and where did it move to?
  14. well this is very interesting. gadi west is brother to my third great grandfather richard west. i did nt realize that any of the west had been in houston during those days.i guess you learn something new every day.
  15. thank yal for the info. i guess i read too many true crime books, i always read the ones that happen in houston, especially if it was near my old neioghborhoods. i still wonder what happened to the houses from the zabolio-duff smith murders, susan white house,issac payton sweats house, the campbell house, and we all know the hill mansion is vacant again.houston is so full of homicide history.
  16. I remember the Champs places. Worked at the one on 290 and Bingle, and the I45 and Dyna. Used to go eat at Jojos. they had good steaks. Pizza Inn ( i think it was off bingle) had a good buffet. Sals pizza off 290 was good too. I would get hamburgers at Charlies. The Del Taco somewhere near Dacoma and Mangum area were good fast food.Used to eat at Lubys on 290 at Grow lane. So many good food places have come and gone.
  17. ive read both books on this case. i have never seen the house. i started a thread eariler about homicide homes and had no respones yet. i hope that both these people are still locked up. they were crazy.it seemed like houston had a load of homicides that produced true crime books during the 80s. maybe someone out there has info on the houses and will post pictures and updates on these properties. i to am curious about these homes. i love the true crime stuff.
  18. oh yes.Always woke up to moby.I had a delivery route and would load up my pinto and take off driving and singing to mobys songs. The mailman song and the morning astrology guide were my favorites. moby was always making fun of someone especially michael pollard and mayor whitmire. Boy i miss those days.klol was the good station too. i still have some t shirts and bumper stickers somewhere. the good o;d days of houston.
  19. does anyone ever wonder whats happens to the homes where people were killed in? are people living in them now and do they know that someone died in it? when i read the true crime books, they tell about the homes but no one ever mentions if these places were tore down or sold to someone who doesnt know the background on it. just curious.
  20. used to go to alot of the clubs. always liked fools gold, cow hop, the club in the barbary coast apartments. blancos and this really cool place in montrose but i can not remember the name. there was always a place to go to after work to unwind. houston had descent bars and today because of health problems cant drink and party anymore but have good memories of these places.
  21. i remember seeing joan when i was a little girl, my dad took us to her horse shows. the saddest day for me was march 19,1969. the day she died was also my 13th birthday.i think about her every year and wonder what houston would be like if she still ran river oaks. whatever happened to her things( trophies, pictures)? one thing that i always thought about was if she was ashs real daughter and some woman, did her birth mother ever have any more children? did joan have some brothers and sisters out there? i havent been able to watch behind mansion walls cause i dont have cable and you tube or id website just wont let you watch it. i hope robert hill is happy and doing good in life. he has been put thru so much. read both books and tommys was the best. anns was a total joke. she did a good job of playing a innocent victum. shes probaly in hell with john hill now.

  23. oh the 80s in houston. such great memories. cool things were the champs on 290 and bingle(i worked there). eating at sals pizza, . going to the dome for oilers games, astroworld, klol, 97 rock( mr moby) remember when kilt was rock? kikk radio. all the great newspeople who kept us informed every night. so many things from that time period. too bad houston isnt the same any more.
