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?

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?

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.

Day 4 of trial. Prosecution rests

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

Quote:
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.
Quote:
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.
