    Bartow County Homicide

    The GBI, Adairsville Police Department and Bartow County Sheriff's Office are seeking information on the murder of a 20 year old Federal Jobs Corps Trainee whose body was found near Adairsville on October 6, 1992.

    The victim, Walter J. Cropper, was last seen Sunday, September 20, 1992 at 1:00 pm in Prestonsburg, Kentucky. He was seen walking down the road in front of the Jobs Corps Center in Prestonsburg. He was to graduate from the Jobs Corps the next week and return to his home in Panama City, Florida.

    On Thursday, October 6, 1992, Cropper's partially decomposed body was discovered 20 feet from Martin Luther King, Jr., Drive which is located about a mile from the intersection of I-75 & Highway 140 in Adairsville. He had been shot in the chest.

    Investigators do not believe he was killed at this location. They also think his death occurred the day he disappeared from Kentucky - Sunday, September 20, 1992.

    Cropper may have been riding in a 1992 red Ford Probe. Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the GBI Tip Line at 1-800-597-TIPS.

    Hale is also a suspect in the disappearance of Mitchell Manns. They found some of his property at Hale's mother's house.

    If that weren't the case, I don't know why Hale would be a suspect in Manns' case. Other than him going missing from near Floyd County (where Cropper was last seen). Manns was in his late-30's (Zahn/Cropper were early-20's) and he was a lot pudgier than the other guys Hale is suspected of killing and/or abusing.

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.
