The Mountain Mysteries: Episode 67, 36 hours to oblivion The Daviess County John Doe
It was the turn of a new decade. 1990 offered promise to some and would offer a decades long unsolved murder to one in particular. Daviess county Kentucky sets along the Kentucky Indiana border and has some 96,000 people that call it home.
It’s had the reputation as the leading producer of alcoholic drinks, specifically Kentucky Bourbon for years. The Southwestern part of the county had been a leader in the production of coal through the 1960’s and is home to its county seat of Owensboro. It’s known for many things, most of which its residents are proud of, some though, shun the darker times. Time, it’s funny we should put it like that, time is an odd thing, it can drag on far longer than any of us would like. Our story begins on January 7, 1990, in Owensboro, Kentucky; the place where NASCAR legends Michael Darrel Waltrip were born, along with acting legend Johnny Depp. Two rabbit hunters were out in a wooded area when they came across the naked body of a white male. They instantly contacted police, who arrived on the scene not long after and proclaimed that it was “the worst they’d ever seen”. That isn’t exaggeration either, most cops who saw the remains stated as much. To this day, over three decades later, this John Doe has still not been identified. Who was he? Why was he murdered, and by whom. These are The Mountain Mysteries, and this is episode 67, 36 hours to oblivion, The Daviess County John Doe.
