Anyone familiar with a case in Lexington, KY, where in Oct. 1973, Rev. John K. Barnes

and his son and daughter were murdered? His wife survived because she happened to be out of the house at the time.

The Rev. John K. Barnes, an Episcopal priest; his daughter Francine, 18; and son, John, 14, were shot to death at their Lexington home by two escaped prisoners in 1973. The escapees, Wilmer Elvis Scott and William Sloan, also were charged with murdering three men at a Falmouth motel the next day.

If there has ever been a book about this I'd be interested in it.

1. I don't know for sure about a book....

I searched on the net and it doesn't look like one has been written. But I stumbled across a discussion about this when I looked to see if I could find a book about this murder.

Here is the link to that discussion. You have to scroll down the page a bit to get to it.

3. Thanks for the heads up on this case.

Googling a bit reveals that one of the murderers committed suicide by setting his mattress ablaze in 74 and the other remains incarcerated.
