    KY - Roy, 81, & Wanda Campbell, 79, Browns Fork, 26 November 2010

    This happened in my folks' hometown, Hazard, KY, last year. I didn't see a thread for it. The murderer is unknown. Hazard's Topix board is full of chatter about the case, but I haven't delved too deeply into the facts yet. I thought perhaps some of my fellow Websleuthers could weigh in. Here are two recent articles:

    Family of wife in double murder still asking for answers one year later
    November 26 will mark one year since the double murder of Roy and Wanda Campbell


    Billboard asks for answers in Roy and Wanda Campbell's murder case

    It's been almost a year since a prominent Hazard businessman and his wife were murdered in their home.

    Perry County Double-Murder Remains Unsolved

    A prominent Perry County businessman and his wife were found shot to death in their home nearly three years ago. For her daughter, it's an open wound mixed with terrifying flashbacks and still no answers...

    Justen said she knows as much now as she did in 2011 that someone killed her mother but no idea why...

    The family is offering a $20,000 reward leading to the arrest and conviction of the Campbells' killer.

    Wow, sad there's no arrest. Some cases take years to solve.

    This couple was quite wealthy, and Campbell was reportedly a tough negotiator in business. Two avenues to explore for possible motives right there.


    Roy Campbell was a visionary land developer but was happiest when he was running a bulldozer, friends as well as competitors said...

    Roy Campbell, 81, was a major landowner in Hazard who donated land to Appalachian Regional Healthcare for a hospital in the 1980s and later donated land for a Veterans Affairs center and various churches in the area. He sold land on Ky. 80 for development of the Wal-Mart and Lowe's shopping center on the west side of town...

    Mr. Campbell and Wanda Campbell, 79, who was from Leslie County, had married three years earlier. The two, along with their respective first spouses, Mildred Campbell and A.B. Feltner, were friends as couples, said Lois Begley of Hyden, a former hairdresser and a friend of Wanda Campbell. They married after Mildred and A.B. died.

    From last month:


    The day after Thanksgiving in 2010, Wanda and Roy Campbell were found shot to death in their Hazard home.

    Five years later the anniversary falls on Thanksgiving, and Wanda’s daughter Shirley Justen is still looking for answers...

    Police made no arrests at the time and the case quickly grew cold. Still, no matter how many years go by, family members will not stop searching for answers until someone is held responsible.

    "Someone knows something," Justen said. "We just need that one person ... we need that burden to become so heavy to carry that they have to get it off them."


    If you have any information, please call Kentucky State Police at (606) 435-6069.
