Johnie Smith, Jr.
31 Years Old

July 25, 1957 to July 4, 1990

My son was a happy person. He loved his family. He was the father of two boys. He finished college and became an artist. One of the things he like most was cooking. Cooking and ironing were his God given talent. He loved all these things and was a perfectionist at anything he endeavored to undertake.


My son was hit in the back of the head with a blunt instrument, and his body was thrown in the Smokey Hill River. He left home on July 3, 1990 to pick up supplies for the 4th of July. That was the last time we saw him alive. Then a farmer found his body in the river on the 9th of July, 1990. The case remains unsolved as of this date.
