    I was just thinking about those who bury remains on their property. Do they stand and look in their yard and say to themselves, so and so is buried there. And there is where so and so lies. Do they see their neighbors in the morning and nod and say to themselves, if you only knew what I knew?
    I think you have described the mind-set exactly - chilling for sure!

    Interesting article. So Gibson has been leading them to the bodies (after making them 'work' for it.)

    My condolences to his sisters. How do you cope with that? You lose your mother, and in the process of trying to settle her estate you find the body of a family friend your brother killed. Then you find out your brother is a serial killer. Emotionally how do you deal with that?

    Ok, that was Gibson's mothers home and the bodies were buried there. So was the mother aware that he was burying bodies in her yard and afraid to tell? Or incapable of comprehending? I wonder what she died of?

    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?

    In a letter written from the Floyd County Jail, William Clyde Gibson told the Louisville Courier-Journal that will be plead guilty and accept the death penalty in the slayings of three women because "after all, I am guilty," the paper reported.

    He sounds like a defense attorneys nightmare. His attorney has filed not guilty pleas for all three cases, but evidently Gibson has written to at least one paper as well as the prosecutor.

    Here is a excellent 11 page article with timeline and videos on William Clyde Gibson III.

    http://www.courier-journal.com/artic...nclick_check=1

    I'm amazed that there isn't more interest in this thread. Has he been linked to any of the serial killer threads?

    The suspected serial killer in Southern Indiana will stand trial after a judge ruled he's mentally competent to move forward in the case.

    William Clyde Gibson, the southern Indiana man accused of murdering three women, will be tried separately in each of those cases.

    Gibson was arrested in April 2012 and charged in the slayings of family friend Christine Whitis, 75, of Clarksville; Stephanie Kirk, 35, of Charlestown; and Karen Hodella, 44, of Port Orange, Fla.

    Whitis’ body was found in Gibson’s garage in New Albany, and Kirk’s body was unearthed in his backyard. Hodella was stabbed to death in 2002, and her body was found near the Ohio River in Clarksville.

    Gibson, 55, is to stand trial first in Whitis’ murder and early next year in Kirk’s death. Both are capital murder cases, which require the state to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that aggravating circumstances also occurred for a death sentence to be imposed.

    Floyd County Prosecutor Keith Henderson is not seeking the death penalty in Hodella’s death.

    Here is a little more detail from day 1 of the trial. This is a death penalty case.

    Day 4 of trial. Prosecution rests

    http://www.wave3.com/story/23782645/...e-gibson-trial

    The jury has been shown graphic pictures and videos of Christine Whitis, prompting some of them to tears. The medical examiner who performed the autopsy, Dr. Amy Burrows-Beckham, testified Whitis died from manual strangulation and had multiple blunt force injuries to her face as well as sexual assault injuries. Whitis' ribs and back were broken and she believed that occurred that after death.

    Burrows-Beckham also said on the stand that Whitis could have lived several hours after her initial attack. She believes Whitis was alive when her head was beaten and the sexual assault occurred.
    While there is a confession by Gibson in this case, it must go to trial because if Gibson is convicted he faces the death penalty. A not guilty plea was automatically entered on behalf of Gibson. It is now up to the State of Indiana to prove its case on why they believe Gibson deserves death.

    William Clyde Gibson was in no way a intelligent person. He would murder women when he was intoxicated. He managed to kill at least 2 other woman prior to CW and was never a suspect in those murders. One of the other two, was found buried in his backyard. It's once again chilling to see that there was a killer walking the streets, for so many years, that no one suspected.

    I will always wonder if he had other victims. His crimes are extremely brutal. He has confessed to the murders. Could there be more that he doesn't remember committing because he was drunk and blacked out?

    Gibson is now in Pre-trial for the murder of Stephanie Kirk. The jury will be selected from Vanderburgh County. He was found guilty and pled guilty regarding the murders of Christine Whitis (convicted) and Karen Hodella (pled). The trial is scheduled for 6/6/2014.

    He was ordered to cover a tattoo on the back of his head that reads "Death Row x3." He's also been styling his mustache with the earwax of fellow prisoners.

    Trial for the murder of Stephanie Kirk

    Gibson's next trial is moving along "is on track" to begin. I guess this was news since we've learned that we expect the long delays due to all of the usual delays and don't think a trial can happen within years of indictment.

    Actually, one of the main point of the stories centers on how he's been "forced" to grow out his hair to cover up the "Death Row x3" tattoo covering Gibson's head. If he really killed those people, he should be allowed to prejudice jurors with his foolish tattoo.

    Jury selection set to begin on Monday in latest Gibson trial

    Not much new here, but they're starting to pick a jury. The trial will be for the murder of Stephanie Kirk. He looks creepier in each pic that I see.

    Today, neighbors told us what it was like living next to a serial killer. Neighbors like Mike Andres, who feels a chilling memory when he looks at the home across the street that used to belong to Gibson.

    "Well, it was like a shock, like what the heck," Andres said. "And then slowly but surely we started getting the news."

    Andres said he was haunted by the fact that Gibson lived feet from his front door.

    "...and what transpired in there, and it was like, 'Wow!'" he said.

    William Clyde Gibson III strangled Stephanie Kirk before performing sexually deviant acts on her body — and at some point broke her spine — in his New Albany home, prosecution witnesses testified Monday.

    The disturbing details of the March 25, 2012, slaying were recounted by witnesses called to support the prosecution's request that Floyd Superior Judge Susan Orth sentence Gibson to die for killing Kirk, 35, of Charlestown...

    A final prosecution witness, Floyd Probation Officer Clare Banet, testified she'd seen Gibson monthly after she was assigned to supervise him after his release on felony theft charges in September 2009 and was surprised when he was re-arrested for murder. "I never noticed any violent tendencies from him," Banet said.
    So he broke at least two of his victims' backs?

    Floyd County Prosecutor Keith Henderson began his closing arguments by saying that Gibson deserves the death penalty because of Gibson's criminal deviate conduct He pointed out gruesome details of Kirk's sexual assault that he read from a written statement from Gibson. He said the bruises found on Kirk's body "tell us a lot as it relates to this criminal deviate conduct."

    "He controlled his victim," Henderson said. "He controlled Ms. Kirk. All the way until she took her last breath."
