Hey nice picture CRicci. As for Rob, I never seriously suspected the guy, I just dont think he had anything to do with it. Does that mean he for sure didnt do it? Of course not. I just think the odds happen to be against it. I hope Rob is living a happy life and he is probably married and has kids by now. I would be curious if he ever joined the military?

As for Worley, I dont know, I mean maybe he isnt such a bad guy. However for him to say he is innocent, I dont know. I mean maybe he didnt have anything to do with the murder, maybe when he left Colleen Reed was really alive and McDuff took her off somewhere. However Worley certainly did nothing to stop the murder and besides that according to McDuff it was Worley's idea to rape Colleen Reed and that Worley even "picked her out" while they were driving around Austin. Heck, by Worley's own admission him and McDuff took turns between driving and raping Colleen Reed while they were driving north on I-35 out of Austin.

Rob lives in Jasper. Butler is about 42 miles east of Clinton. He moved to Butler after he married.

Thanks, shamac, for the update on Rob. What a horrible thing to live with. I'm glad to know he married and was able to get on with his life (as much as possible).

Short-time reader, first time poster.......

I'm not sure if this is mentioned in the 9 pages of posts here regarding this case, but I believe the Trudy Darby murder was solved. I googled her name and got something about a guy appealing his conviction in this case. I just skimmed it, but he allegedly said his brother and another guy were involved in the Darby murder. It seems unconnected to the Hammond kidnapping, IMHO.

Welcome to the board and thanks for pointing that out. I didn't know someone had been convicted of her murder. I found that webpage you're speaking of and here is a part concerning Trudy's murder I thought you guys might want to read:

"At approximately 10:00 p.m. on January 19, 1991, Trudy Darby was working at the K & D convenience store in Macks Creek, Camden County, Missouri. Just prior to closing the store for the evening, Ms. Darby noticed a suspicious looking man standing outside the front of the store. She immediately telephoned her home and spoke to her son, Waylon Darby, whom she asked to come to the store to help her close up. That telephone call ended abruptly.
Before her son arrived to help, Trudy Darby was abducted at gun point by at least three men. Upon arriving at the store and discovering that his mother was gone, Waylon Darby called the Camden County Sheriff's Department. Trooper Jimmy Mays of the Missouri State Highway Patrol arrived at the scene and "processed" the store and surrounding area. Despite extensive search efforts that evening, Trudy Darby was not found.
On January 21, 1991, a concerned citizen heard a report from one of his neighbors that he heard a gunshot near the Little Niangua River on the night of Ms. Darby's abduction. After investigating himself and discovering what appeared to be blood and blond hair on the road near the river, the citizen contacted Deputy Crocker of the Camden County Sheriff's Department, who in turn contacted Trooper Mays, and together the two officers went to the river and investigated.
They discovered the blood, hair and a spent .38 caliber shell casing near the river. The two officers also discovered that the flow of the water in the river created a whirlpool near a bridge, and they believed that anything thrown in the river would have either stayed near the whirlpool or would have not floated very far downstream.
Next, the officers contacted the Missouri Highway Patrol and requested a helicopter search along the river. The helicopter search resulted in locating a nude female body that was about four feet under water and approximately three-quarter's of a mile downstream from where the blood, hair and shell casing were found. The body was identified as Trudy Darby.
The blood and hair found on the road near the river were later determined to match Trudy Darby's blood and hair by the Missouri State Highway Patrol Crime Laboratory.
An autopsy was performed by Dr. Jay Dix on Trudy Darby's body on January 22, 1991. Dr. Dix determined that Trudy Darby's death was caused by two gunshot wounds. The first shot entered the right side of her head creating a gutter wound across her right ear, and the bullet then lodged in her skull after traveling about one inch. The trajectory of the bullet indicated that it came from behind and to the right of the victim. The second shot entered the back of Ms. Darby's head and traveled up through her brain before coming to rest below her scalp.
The investigation into who abducted and murdered Trudy Darby revealed little until the Summer of 1994.
Between 1992 and 1993, Defendant was living with family members near Kansas City, Missouri, and during his stay there he revealed to Elizabeth Corpening that he was involved in the abduction and murder of Trudy Darby. Ms. Corpening was disturbed by this revelation but did not take it too seriously.
Thereafter, in 1993 Defendant revealed to Carl Blakely, a former neighbor of Defendant, that he was involved in the abduction and murder of Trudy Darby. However, this time Defendant's revelation was taken seriously and was reported to Trooper Mays. During the same time period, Gretchen Chastain, a former girlfriend of Defendant, also reported to Trooper Mays that Defendant had revealed to her that he was involved in the abduction and murder of Trudy Darby.
Armed with these reports, Trooper Mays had Defendant arrested. After his arrest, Defendant was interviewed by three officers. One of the officers was a juvenile officer because at the time of the murder, Defendant would have been fifteen years old. At the beginning of the interview, Defendant denied his involvement in this crime. However, later during the interview, Defendant changed his mind and revealed that he was present during the commission of the crimes. Defendant also implicated his brother and one other individual.
It appears that Defendant, together with his brother and at least one other person, arrived at the K & D convenience store on January 19, 1991, with the purpose of robbing and abducting Trudy Darby.
After entering the store and taking money from the cash register, Trudy Darby was dragged out of the store and thrown into the trunk of their automobile. Trudy Darby was then taken to a barn located near the convenience store where she was repeatedly raped and beaten by Defendant and the other persons involved. She was then shot once in the head and placed back into the trunk of their automobile. Defendant and his co-conspirators then drove to the Little Niangua River and opened the trunk and discovered that Trudy Darby was still alive. She was shot in the head again. Her body was then thrown into the river.
During Defendant's incarceration pending trial on this matter, he revealed to at least three inmates that he was involved in the abduction and murder of Trudy Darby. These three inmates each testified against Defendant.
One of the inmates was Edward Thomas, with whom Defendant became acquainted at the Fulton Diagnostic Center. Defendant was under the mistaken belief that Edward Thomas, a "jailhouse lawyer," could help him "beat" the charges pending against him. During the course of several conversations and some thirteen hand-written letters to Edward Thomas, Defendant revealed his involvement in the murder of Trudy Darby.
Thereafter, Edward Thomas turned over all the letters he received from Defendant and revealed the substance of his conversations with Defendant to the Camden County Sheriff's Department. These letters were all introduced into evidence by the prosecution during Defendant's trial.
Defendant did not testify on his own behalf at trial nor did he present any evidence on his behalf. Defendant was convicted by a jury of first degree murder and kidnapping and was sentenced to life in prison without eligibility for parole or probation."

From the Missouri Dept. of Corrections website......these two guys are in prison for the murder of Trudy Darby (life sentences). They may be brothers, although they have different last names. Rush was 15 at the time of the murder, and Chaney was 29 or 30.

(see attached pictures - hopefully it works)

Well who's to say that these guys (or atleast one of them) were not also involved in the Hammond case. They could have very well felt like they got away with the murder of Trudy Darby and decided to do it again. The crimes are so similar and happened in a close time frame, its got to be a possibility. Any thoughts?

Ok I dug into this in the MO courts website. Turns out the attorney for Rush tried to file an apeal to his sentence in 1997. The reason? The judge had allowed into evidence writings by Rush where he openly admitted to committing OTHER SIMILAR crimes. Hows that for a smoking gun.

Here is a qoute from one of Rush's writings


FN1. All statutory references are to RSMo 1994, unless otherwise indicated.
FN2. For example, Defendant wrote to Edward Thomas that "I never told you about them other bitchs . . . ." With regard to some evidence, he wrote "because if it gets found by accident it can get us involved in killing them other ****ing bitchs. . . ." Furthermore, Defendant wrote "hey dog I tried to explain a little about them other bitchs I hope your not mad at me. . . ." Defendant also explained to Edward Thomas in a letter that "the cops don't even know about my brother and me killing any other bitchs except Macks Creek." Finally, Defendant wrote that "them other bitchs in my last letter to you were both like that bitch in Macks Creek we all tortured the bitchs then ****ed the dog **** out of em. . . ." These examples represent the degree of detail which Defendant referred to other crimes. All spelling and grammatical errors in these examples belong to the author of the letters, Defendant.

Does anyone have any clue what kind of vehicle these men were driving at the time...If this was wrote about the other "bitchs" then obviously he is referring to the Kenney lady from Nevada, MO and Angela Hammond from Clinton.

Im sure there is some way to do a DMV check and find out if any of them owned an older pick up truck. I don't want to get too overzealous here but Im fairly sure we have our suspects. Several people have asked how it is the driver of the truck was able to control Angela and still drive, the answer is there were actually two abductors. Does Chaney not look like the hairy bearded man that Angela described? After circling the block and picking their victim Rush may have been let out of the truck out of Angela's sight. As Chaney fiddled around in the truck distracting her Rush could have snuck up on her and they both drug her into the truck. This guy has openly said they comitted other similar crimes in regards to Trudy Darby, we know of several similar crimes in the same general area and during the same time period. What more do we need here?

Wowww.... again, I'm impressed with some good online sleuthing. Nice work, Kane7474!

Quick law for y'all: The reason that this guy is filing an appeal is because his writings about the "other b****es" was presumably in violation of Rule of Evidence 404(b), which stipulates that evidence of previous bad acts is not allowed to be entered against you in court, as it is extremely prejudicial. HOWEVER, the loophole to this rule is that such evidence can be entered if it establishes a pattern of behavior. Based on the language of the writings which Kane7474 has uncovered, I'm a firm believer that this writing does establish such a pattern. However, that's for an appellate judge to decide, not me.

I'm intrigued by this new development. I don't want to get too excited, either, but it is definitely plausible. I'm just sad to read that if Angela WAS abducted by these men, she was obviously raped and tortured before she was killed.
