Ken McElroy

Ken McElroy

Ken McElroy terrorized the town of Skidmore, Missouri for more than 10 yeras. He was indicted 21 times for various horrible crimes, but was only ever convicted for one—the murder of the town’s 70-year-old grocer. After being released on bond in 1981, he returned to the town, and he showed up in the local tavern armed and threatening to kill the town’s minister. Next day, he was shot dead in the presence of over 30 witnesses, but the shooters were never named, and no charges were ever pressed because no one spoke up.
