    Exclamation IN - WILLIAM CLYDE GIBSON - New Albany - 2012

    NEW ALBANY, IND. (WDRB) -- Police have found human remains in a New Albany man's backyard.

    New Albany Police Department, New Albany Fire Department, and the street department are using excavation equipment in William "Clyde" Gibson, III's backyard.

    The 54-year-old is charged with the recent murder of 75-year-old Christine Whitis and the 2002 murder of 45-year-old Karen Hodella.

    Detectives from other jurisdictions are watching the ongoing search, as they pursue leads in missing persons cases.

    One of those cases involves 35-year-old Stephanie Kirk of Charlestown, reported missing after she was last seen March 25 in New Albany.

    In 1992, Gibson told a psychologist that "it's hard to predict what I might do," when he drinks heavily, records said. But in 1999, a psychologist found Gibson was at "low risk" for being arrested again as a sex offender.

    This week, prosecutors also charged Gibson with being a habitual offender, listing convictions on 10 charges in eight cases between 1992 and 2007.

    The Courier-Journal reported Gibson was discharged from the Army for bad conduct in 1979 and had spent a year in the military prison at Leavenworth, Kan.

    Court records also describe Gibson as a well-liked, "extremely shy" person who didn't know how to respond when introduced to people. They said he had borderline intelligence and was emotionally immature, The Courier-Journal said.

    So know we need to know where this guy has been for the last 35 years or so.

    Kansas - late 1970's
    Kentucky - 1991
    Indiana - 2002 & 2012

    His criminal record should be helpful in seeing where he's been. It appears he has stayed over in the East though.

    There obviously is no pattern to who he kills, aside from gender.
    Women ages 45, 75 and 35...

    No pattern to disposal...
    The first was found in the Ohio River, the second inside his house, the third buried in his yard.

    Is there a pattern to cause of death? Maybe he killed them all the same way?
    Or he just really that disorganized of a serial killer...

    75 year old found strangled in his house April 19.
    35 year old found strangled buried in his yard April 27.

    No cause of death on 45 year old found near the Ohio river in 2003.
    I think there is a good chance she was also strangled as well, by the time they found her body I think it had been too long to tell for sure.

    So.... any other women strangled that would fit?
    I know there are several missing women in that section of the country... any who were found murdered by strangulation?

    I have some on the West coast... but we have no indication that he left those few states.
    If we find any evidence that puts him in California/Utah/etc... then that would be different.

    I didn't see the article linked. It has a video interview with a neighbor.
    Melodie Shultz, who lives next door and said she has known Gibson since childhood, said he was routinely in trouble as a youth, and as the years went on, police would come to the neighborhood looking for him.

    I'm in Indiana and noticed this case in my local newspaper. It really caught my interest and I have started researching his criminal history to get a timeline. I've also started to find some unsolved strangulation cases that may or may not be related.

    It appears that from the what the neighbors said in the media links that he may have lived with his mother quite a bit of his life. This also seems to coincide with what I am finding on his criminal history. It would be great if we were able to talk to a neighbor to verify this. This would really help with the timeline.

    So far the only pattern that I can see with the victims are they were all caucasian females,
    2 we know were stragulated and 2 he met or was with in a bar.

    Should I go ahead and put my findings on his criminal history and list the cold cases I file on this thread?

    Ok, I found this article where William Gibson confessed to his first murder of Karen Hodella. The details he gives are that he stabbed her in the neck, so strangulation isn't the only way he killed if his confession is true.

    http://www.wlky.com/news/local-news/...z/-/index.html

    Also, one of his convictions was a handgun violation.

    So far, from what I have read, the only common denominator is that he became violent while using drugs and or alcohol. Nothing has been said about any of his murder victims being sexually assaulted.

    I wouldn't rule out the possibility that he may have had male victims also.

    William Clyde Gibson - New Albany - 2012

    3rd woman's body found at home of man charged with two other murders

    snip....35-year-old Stephanie Marie Kirk, who disappeared in March. The Louisville Courier-Journal reported that Floyd County Coroner Leslie Knable said the preliminary cause of death was strangulation and it was uncertain how long she had been dead.

    snip.....The remains were found at the home of William Clyde Gibson, a registered sex offender charged in the death of 45-year-old Karen Hodella and 75-year-old Christine Whitis. Hodella disappeared in 2002, and her body was found early the next year. Whitis was found dead April 19 at Gibsonís motherís home in New Albany. Gibson was arrested later that day.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
