    The Alan and Lisa Tackett murder case

    I hope I am doing this right. I need the support and the strength of WS members. Below is an article Covering the murder of my brother and sister in law.


    PRESTONSBURG — The mournful cries of traumatized children silenced the courtroom Wednesday afternoon, when Det. Ben Cramer, of the Kentucky State Police, played a 911 tape that brought sharp focus to the reality of the scene that took place in the home of Alan and Lisa Tackett, of Abbott, on the evening of March 20, at approximately 6:30 p.m.
    It was on that evening that Alan Tackett, 47, and his wife, Lisa, 30, were gunned down sniper-style in their own front yard by bullets allegedly fired by Berry Hall, 45, the uncle of Lisa Tackett, from a second-story window of his home.
    According to testimony provided Wednesday by Det. Cramer, Lisa Tackett's dead body, struck once through the chest, was found lying in the front yard of her home, while her husband's body lay half-in, half-out across the threshold of the home's front door. Alan Tackett, according to Cramer, had been struck twice — once in the hand, and again on the right side of his head.
    Four children under the age of 5 years old were inside the home at the time of the shootings.
    Though Hall, according to Det. Cramer, "made three separate confessions" to the crime, his court-appointed attorney Steven Goble, of Pikeville, entered a plea of not guilty before District Judge James R. Allen on Wednesday afternoon.
    "I lost it and I killed them," Det. Cramer said Hall told him on the evening of March 20. Cramer also said that Hall told him that he had been arguing with his niece and her husband earlier that day about "some ongoing issues" involving property lines and a dog owned by the couple that had wandered onto Hall's property. Hall, according to Det. Cramer, had said that "he just had all he could stand and he shot and killed them."
    Cramer said that during the course of questioning, he queried Hall in regard to the possible danger that existed for the children in the home. "He repeatedly said that he was in control of himself enough that he knew he would not harm any of the children," Cramer said.
    Following the shootings, Hall allegedly entered the home of the slain couple and retrieved the four children, who he then took to his own home, allegedly stepping over the dead bodies of the children's parents in order to do so.
    Along with the alleged confessions, examination of the crime scene, and a taped 911 recording of Hall's son alleging that it was his father who had fired the shots that killed Alan and Lisa Tackett, evidence was compelling that it was, indeed, Berry Hall who committed the double murder.
    Though Hall's attorney conducted a cross-examination of Det. Cramer's testimony, Hall himself remained quiet, appearing calm throughout the proceeding.
    Judge Allen declared that Hall would remain held without bond in the Floyd County Detention Center. Allen also declared that charges against Hall of two counts of murder and four counts of wanton endangerment will be referred to the grand jury.

    A proud happy people, we were here long before the white man came. Stalking along meadow paths, we were used to hunting every day. The rivers gave us fish, The woods even gave us deer and other wild game. Here upon this land, we built our homes, and raised our families. Love was free and natural, as we moved swiftly among the trees. This was a country, It was here that we lived for centuries. Oh I want peace with my soul again. Oh I, I want peace with my soul again. Everyday was new love,. Our village was filled with smiling faces.

    May God give you the grace and the comfort you need to get through this.

    I am praying for you and your family (people say that and don't always mean it, but I do mean it).
    Beyond the door,
    There's peace I'm sure,
    And I know there'll be no more
    Tears in heaven.

    Tulessa.... I am so sorry that this happened to your brother, your family, and you.
    I can only imagine how difficult this has been for you- and, of course, it's not over yet.

    These murders were so tragic, and so senseless. It practically leaves me speechless when I think of those four little children there in the house, while this was happening to their parents. And then, for the killer to actually go in and retrieve them, as if to 'protect' them, while he was the reason for the carnage... I'm sorry, and I'm sure these are thoughts and emotions you have been dealing with for a long time now.

    Just count me in as one you can 'lean on', through the days leading up to, and through, the ordeal of the trial. If you just need to vent, or anything, we are here for you, okay?

    My heart really goes out to you.
    .... ....... My posts are my opinion, only.

    Tulessa- I just have to ask, how are the children doing now? I hope they are with your family, but if not, I hope you and your family are able to see or speak with them, often.

    Also, did your brother mention to you, or others in your family, the conflict they were having with his wife's uncle? Do you think they had any idea that they were actually in danger?

    I apologize if any question I'm asking is too personal, please know it is not intended that way, I just want to get up to speed before the trial begins.

    (((hugs)))

    The babies are with Lisa's Mom and Dad and they are doing great. They have went through extensive counseling. When I would visit my brother, he would ask me to NOT look over at the neighbors. I ask him why and he said his wife did not get along with them. That was all I was told. Later, after their deaths, I found out that this was over 19 inches of land and a poodle. They had NO IDEA that this was coming. This was Lisa's uncle.

    Please feel free to ask any questions at all. We see the babies all the time. They still refere to my brother as monster dad. Keep in mind they were 4, 3 and 2 year old twins.

    That 911 call was 19 minutes long. It was horrific.
