      There were five people in the Parsons family when they were murdered by Jodie Hamilton in 1906 – Carney Parsons, his wife Minnie and their three boys, Jessie, Frankie and Edward.

      Hamilton disposed of their bodies in a river, but not before stealing their property.

      Murder!

      Jodie Hamilton

      On Friday 12 October, 1906, 35 year old Carney Parsons, his 24 year old wife Minnie and their three children, five year old Jessie, three year old Frankie and one year old Edward were murdered by a madman named Jodie Hamilton. There are several versions of how Hamilton murdered the family, but we are going to go by the newspaper article of the time. Hamilton, a known thief, lived with the Parsons – although things were not great between them. He worked as a share cropper. The reason for the murder was pure evil and greed.

      Only days before Mr Parsons had sold much of his corn crop to Hamilton, and had made $150 from the sale. Hamilton stole that money when he killed the family. He also stole Mr Parson’s ‘church’ suit and wedding ring.

      The method of murder was horrendous. Hamilton shot Mr Parsons in the leg, and then beat him to death. He killed Mrs Parsons with a pole axe. The three small children were hit over the head with a gun barrel before having their throats cut with their fathers knife.

      To dispose of the bodies, he threw them into the Piney River. A fisherman found them.

      Hamilton then made a fatal error. He wore the suit he stole from Mr Parsons to church. While at church, an announcement was made of the discovery of their bodies. Hamilton quickly left the church, riding a mule he also stole from the Parsons family.

      They tried again, at 11:04, the trap was sprung a second time. This time Jodie Hamilton was executed efficiently for the crime of 5 murders.

      Execution of Jodie Hamilton.
