I am writing a story for my next book, "How Did They Die? Murdered in Texas 1954-2010. I am writing a story about Kenneth Dee Stogsdill, whose mother lived in Vernon. I have a document signed by her as:
Mrs. M.D. Stogsdill
1310 Eagle St.
I am trying to identify who his parents were.
He was convicted in Wichita Co. and given the death penalty in 1976 for the sexual mutilation of a man. His conviction was overturned and he served 4 years of a 10 sentence for assault. After he got out of prison, he went to California and murdered and decapitated another man. Any help trying to identify his "roots" would be appreciated. Julie Coley
