    Parolees are usually paroled to a halfway house, aren't they? So Robert Cox, paroled from FL and returning immediately to his hometown of Springfield, MO, would likely have been at a halfway house there, right? Probably working his marking underground utilities job while staying there.

    I wonder what halfway house that was, how many were in Springfield in 1992, and if there are still records concerning that?

    Yes, it's a sad case. And really strange (in this day and age) that there are no definitive clues to 3 people's disappearance.

    Does anyone know if there was a good turnout for her visitation yesterday in Springfield? It seems MSM gave them some space for it. I appreciate that. It's about time.

    I heard on the radio this morning that he was being kept away from the other prisoners at Greene County Jail. Puke!!

    As for CMW I'm guessing it could be possible but feeling doubtful.
    Yeah, it's a stretch. But there are some connections worth checking into. Marshfield (where he went to high school) is in Webster County. Rural Webster County is the county where LE were tipped off once or twice that the girls were buried.

    I'm wondering if when the family lived in Marshfield if it was in the rural area? (Were they raising cattle and trotter horses then as well?)

    Questions

    Hello Everyone,

    I have been following this forum and thread and a new poster. I live about 20 miles from Springfield and just a few miles from Ash Grove. Just last year, we lost Audriaunna Horton in Golden City, Mo. Within an hour she was abducted, body found and murderer arrested. Now, Hailey. It is disgusting and just heartbreaking. CW is very perplexing. 45y/o and a relatively clean record. Has someone been using money to clean up after him? It seems as though everything else has been provided for him. It seems he felt very confident in taking Hailey to his home - knowing the clean up that would be involved? It appears that taking her there was not out of desperation because that was his plan as evidenced by the prior purchases of bleach. I am wondering if anyone would happen to know the specifics for JDW's teaching career? I am presuming CW was pulled into the Springfield educational system through his retired teacher (social studies/coach) father. On Facebook, JDW is referenced (I think) as faculty at Missouri State University. When questioned by LE, one of CW's alibis was that he was driving near Missouri State? I have heard "talk" that JDW retired from the Springfield educational system. If so, which schools was he affiliated? Also, at Missouri Case.net - the defendant's address is shown as Ash Grove - not Springfield - why? CW's role as supervisor for kids in trouble (suspensions) is quite worrisome. Many times, it is the troubled ones that are looking for a "friend". Now that CW is locked up, I'm hoping others will feel secure enough to come forward to help the prosecution.

    My apologies for rambling, thank you in advance for listening to the wheels turn.

    I believe to get at a lot of where CMW has been has to be done with the "back story" of his father. NOT that his father is anywhere involved or responsible for this crime. But where CMW has lived and been. To map out any other past crimes he may have been involved. As in when was the "family farm" inherited. How long has he had access to that property, and in what time frame?

    Today is the day that poor Hailey will be laid to rest. I believe it is time to unearth the family history of CMW and any possible secrets that have been buried.

    These can be done by personal background checks (not through casenet) , credit checks (showing prior addresses) , and such. I don't know how to do them but I think it could be a beginning.

    Some one inquired about financial compensation for Hailey's family up-thread (if I remember correctly).

    KY3 News - Springfield, MO -- 2/24/14

    Funeral service for Hailey Owens will be 'celebration of life'
    The visitation will be on Tuesday with the funeral the following day


    Snipped:

    The Missouri Victims Compensation Fund is covering for most of the service costs, according to Adams, with Greenlawn Funeral Home paying for all other expenses.

    Hi Bookkeeper, welcome to the thread.

    Ash Grove is where CW's parents live (rural area northwest of Springfield). Not sure, though, why defendant's address is listed as there, though at the beginning of court proceedings his parents had hired an atty, so the addresses might have gotten mixed up.

    I didn't know JW taught at MSU. Did hear that he was a highly respected high school teacher. Craig Wood attended MSU between 1986 and Dec 1992, when he graduated with a bachelor's degree in psych (minor in criminal justice). Don't know if Craig could be 'pulled into' the Springfield public school system based on his dad's record there (he was only hired as a substitute teacher and later, teacher-aide--and to be honest, the need for someone who can coach as well is often a big swing factor in hiring teachers). It sounds like Springfield did more than the required by law background checks, and apart from the college-era drug charge, his record was pretty clean.

    Thanks for coming in here as a local; all of us are hurting for your town and Hailey's family.

    Welcome to Websleuths Bookkeeper!

    I'm a bit of stickler for details and just wanted to say Adriaunna Horton's body wasn't found until two days after her death. Bobby D. Bourne Jr was arrested 2 hours after her abduction.

    New judge is assigned to Craig Wood's murder case

    Wood is accused of kidnapping and murdering a 10-year-old girl, Hailey Owens.


    Snipped:

    SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -
    A judge granted a defense attorney’s motion for a new judge for the case of a man accused of killing a girl last week. Greene County Associate Circuit Judge Dan Imhof, who presided last Friday at the initial court appearance for Craig Wood, took himself off the case. It’s now assigned to Associate Circuit Judge Jason Brown.

    I am not suggesting that in the way you are implying, id I understand your question correctly. However my point is, that if using his father's address down to including these court proceedings, in order to accurately see where HE has been and is...is to I guess as you put it sleuth his father.

    Do we know he took himself off or why the defense wanted him off?

    Eerie parallels with BTK:

    BTK (Dennis Rader) was 29 at the time of his first kill, which was a family of four, home invasion. Rader subdued them all by himself. This is not actually an "eerie parallel" but illustrates that perhaps Wood could have subdued the Springfield Three all by himself in his twenties.

    BTK studied criminal justice at Wichita State; Wood studied criminal justice at Southwest Missouri State if I'm not mistaken.

    BTK came from a nice family no one would have expected to harbor a monster.

    Springfield and Wichita are similar towns (in my opinion) only 250 miles apart. OK, Wichita is about 2.5 times as large. Surprisingly prosperous even considering the economic roller coaster we've been on in the last few decades. Crack police forces. People are salt of the earth.

    When BTK was caught he had led such a double life almost no one could believe it was him.

    And one difference: BTK loved to taunt the police. I don't believe Wood has ever taunted the police or acted like "look at my handiwork" and I don't know of any mysterious taunting of the police and public about the Springfield Three (if Wood did the Springfield Three)

    CW's Father

    CS's father's career may have at some point incorporated time at possibly Kickapoo HS -giving CW familiarity with Kickapoo students. Then, that makes me wonder about the Springfield 3.

    I'm not implying that CW's father had a direct hand in Hailey's murder, but I do find it hard to believe that CW's parents didn't know that "something" wasn't quite right with their son.
