Keddie Revisited
By S. King

A Script

Location

Nestled against the western slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountain range, Quincy, the Plumas County seat is tucked at the edge of the lush American Valley. Quincy, being the largest community in Plumas County, with a population of only about 5,000, is located midway between Oroville and Reno on all-weather Scenic Byway - State Route 70, at the top of the Feather River Canyon.

The Motives
A Drug Rip Off or Rape and Revenge ?

The Players
Glenna Sharp age 36
John Sharp age 15
Dana Wingate age 17
Tina Sharp age 13
Shelia Sharp age 14
Richard Meeks age 15
Dale Meeks, age 17
Craig Walters, age 17
Martin Smartt, age 32
Marylyn Smartt, age unk
John Boubee, Age unk
Justin (Marylyn Smartt’s son age unk)
Mrs. Meeks, (Mother of Richard and Dale Meeks)

The Plot
April 11, 1981, Quincy, CA. - Sometime between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. that day, 15-year-old John Sharp and his buddy, 17-year-old Dana Wingate, were seen hitchhiking from Quincy to the Keddie Resort and Cabin #28. It is believed that a local punk named Craig Walters had picked up the boys and gave them a ride home so he claimed. (It is believed that Craig was later beaten almost to death by Richard Meeks as a warning to keep his mouth shut!)

John had been living there for months with his 36-year-old mother, Glenna Sharp -- and once the two boys walked through the door, police say, the horror began.

It is believed by authorities that a “pair of killers” either went in with the boys or was waiting with Glenna Sharp, and they tied up all three with duct tape and electrical wire, which they believe was already in the cabin.
The authorities also believe that soon after that, John’s 13-year-old sister, Tina, showed up and was also bound by the killers.

(Richard Meeks, his brother and their mother have claimed for over 25 years that it was Marty Smartt and John Boubee who were the killers. However, Shelia had been carrying on a relationship with Richard Meeks and had become pregnant by Richard and Shelia was forced by Glenna to give up this child for adoption or Richard would be charged with statutory rape.)

What followed was a night of torture.

By the time the killers left 10 hours later (That would have been around 7AM in the morning), they had used steak knives and a claw hammer to such effect that the victims were barely recognizable.

Martin Smartt was in his cabin at 2 AM according to his wife Marylyn, along with John Boubee, both of them were calm and had no indication or signs of any kind of altercation or agitation.)

"Whoever did this stabbed the victims so violently they bent one knife totally double from the force," said Sheriff's Patrol Commander Rod DeCrona. "They stabbed and pounded on everything in sight -- the walls, the people, the furniture. Everything."

He shuddered at the memory of first walking into the murder scene. "There was blood sprayed absolutely everywhere," DeCrona said. "You knew right away we were involved with a psychopath."

The carnage was only discovered the next morning by John's 14-year-old sister, Sheila, who claimed she had been at a sleepover next door. To the enduring surprise of police, nobody outside the charnel house had heard a thing. And the mystery only deepened: Not only was the body of Tina, most likely killed at the scene, missing -- but three near-toddlers sleeping in one bedroom had been amazingly left untouched.

Tina's severed head was found three years later by a bottle-digger, 50 miles downhill at a waterfall. One of the children in the bedroom -- two were Sharp brothers, the other a play-pal (Justin) -- remembered enough so police could make a sketch of two killers, but the boy was so young the picture's accuracy is considered questionable. (Many believe that this sketch is of Dale Meeks. Dale is thought to have been molesting Tina Sharp and he too would have been charged with rape.)

Thousands of leads and suspects have been picked over since then by deputies, the FBI and state investigators -- but nothing panned out, DeCrona said. A timeline of the case dominates three walls of the sheriff's office, tips still come in, and DNA samples were sent to the state crime lab just two months ago, but nobody's holding his breath.
"Usually in a crime like this, the killers get sloppy and leave more behind, “said DeCrona, sighing. "I wish it were that simple. We have no motive, no suspects."

Craig Walters claims that he and the boys were responsible for a recent “Drug Rip Off” which resulted in deaths of the victims. This of course is just hypothetical and no proof to date exists except the word of Craig Walters.

Marty Smartt is reported to have claimed that he and John were the intended targets, being responsible for a large drug rip off for which Craig Walters claims he was responsible for? This however was discounted by the authorities as the reason for the murders. Craig to this date still claims that it was John, Dana and he who did the drug rip off.

The Meeks brothers, both of which are considered to be suspects in the case, were having sexual relations with the two Sharp girls and were found out by their mother and she was threatening to file charges against both of them.

Craig Walters was supposedly seen leaving Keddie by Richard and Dale and was confronted later by Richard Meeks and told to keep his mouth shut or risk meeting the same fate as the Sharps. Craig to this date claims his life was endangered but continues to inject himself into the murders.

Tina being the only victim that was not left at the scene was found some three years later is also considered the motive for the murders, otherwise why not leave her body at the scene. Did Glenna find out that Dale Meeks had gotten Tina pregnant as did Richard with Shelia? Dale being somewhat older would have surely been convicted of rape had he been found out. He without a doubt had good reason to shut Glenna up. But why take Tine from the scene?

Conclusion
Law Enforcements apprehend the killers and they are brought to justice! Their conspirators are also found out and also prosecuted.

Yep, a perfect Hollywood script. There's at least one thing wrong with almost every paragraph. Of course I wouldn't have it any other way. Ya see, this is an open investigation. Loose lips sink ships and investigations, more than you all may think.

Bottom line: Someone may be able to make a buck off this, but it's of about the same value as bringing in a psychic.

"THIS IS NOT THE LAST TIME I WAS INVOLVED IN SUCH TROUBLE AS I GOT MYSELF IN SOME TROUBLE LATER DRIVING THE GET AWAY CAR FOR A BREAKIN AND ROBBERY OF A STORE"

Don't you see a pattern developing here? Confessions are starting to pop up! Craig knows his ass is hanging out! Richard is no where to be heard from! And all Valley can do is sling the shit! I am starting to think that Valley is really Dale Meeks! Nah! Maybe?

Oh Sweetpea, have you not been following the BS that has been spewing from Craig's keyboard for the last couple of years? Or for that matter from Richard's as well? That is so plain that a Flying Monkey could see it!

Keddie Revisited
By S. King

Scene II: The Plot thickens!

Headlines Local newspaper

“Prominent BMX Biker Found Murdered!”
June 31, 2007

Sacramento, Ca. (AP-E) – Police were called today to a local residence to investigate the murder of a so-called “renowned biker” thought to have been threatened in the early 1980’s because of his knowledge of the Keddie Resort murders which have remained unsolved to this date.

Craig Walters, believed to be associated with the “still free” murderers of three members of the Keddie Resort family along with a friend of one of the other victims, was found dead today in his home.

Police have not disclosed the method in which Mr. Walters was killed; however they believe that a known suspect in the Keddie murders threatened Mr. Walters some months after the murders were committed. Mr. Walters was severely beaten up by another local Quincy resident at the time, Richard Meeks.

Walters was apparently seen dropping off two of the murder victims, John Sharpe and Dana Wingate, by Mr. Meeks and his brother shortly before the murders were supposedly committed.

The Meeks brothers are believed to have had sexual relations with one of the victims and her sister. Authorities believe that the mother had recently become aware that her oldest daughter had been seeing Mr. Meeks and that she was pregnant by Mr. Meeks.

Mr. Walters, who for years had been posting on an internet web forum, has recently admitted to being party to several crimes committed during this same time period. Mr. Walters was berated by other forum members for always injecting himself into the Keddie murders and for being a perpetual liar.

Authorities have reason to believe that due to Mr. Walter’s confessions of other crimes that the Meeks brothers may have carried out their threat to shut Mr. Walters to prevent Mr. Walters from disclosing their part in murders at the Keddie Resort outside of Quincy, Ca.

*This is a hypothetical situation to be considered in helping to flush out the real perpetrators and is just part of an ongoing screen play being developed.

Craig, was it in fact Dale or Richard Meeks that beat your ass in front of RT? If it was one of them what exactly was the beat down for? Did they say or was it just a silent thrashing? Did you ever press battery charges against whomever did this to you? Did the PCSO not ever investigate who did this to you? Just trying to get my facts straight sorry if you had elaborated on this before in previous posts. thanks JK

Keddie Revisited
By S. King

Scene III: Arrests

Headlines Local newspaper

“Brothers Arrested, Released”
June 31, 2007

Quincy, CA. (AP-E) – Police today arrested two local residences in the continuing investigation of the murder of the so-called “renowned BMX biker” thought to have been threatened in the early 1980’s because of his knowledge of the Keddie Resort murders which have remained unsolved to this date.

Richard and Dale Meeks were arrested locally in connection with the killing of Craig Walters, and are believed to be connected with the murders of the Keddie Resort family along with a friend of one of the other victims.

Police have not disclosed the method in which Mr. Walters was killed; however they believe that the known suspects in the Keddie murders threatened Mr. Walters some months after the murders were committed. Mr. Walters was supposedly severely beaten up by Quincy resident Richard Meeks shortly after the murders...

Walters was apparently seen dropping off two of the murder victims, John Sharpe and Dana Wingate, by Mr. Meeks and his brother shortly before the murders were committed.

The Meeks brothers are believed to have had sexual relations with one of the victims and her sister Shelia. Authorities believe that the mother had recently become aware that her oldest daughter had been seeing Mr. Meeks and that she was pregnant by Mr. Meeks. Upon finding out that the older brother may have been molesting her younger daughter, Tina; it is believed that Mrs. Sharpe had planned on filing rape charges against the two brothers.

Mr. Walters, who for years had been posting on an internet web forum, has recently admitted to being party to several crimes committed during this same time period which prompted authorities to take action in the arrests of the two brothers.

Mr. Walters was also berated on a regular basis by other forum members for always injecting himself into the Keddie murders and for being a perpetual liar.

Authorities have reason to believe that due to Mr. Walter’s confessions of other crimes that the Meeks brothers may have carried out their threat to shut Mr. Walters up permanently to prevent Mr. Walters from disclosing their part in murders at the Keddie Resort outside of Quincy, Ca.

Several hours after the arrests Mr. Meek’s wife and mother showed up at the local jail and posted bond for the two brothers.

The two brothers and the wife, (Shelia) of the younger brother, Richard, is the oldest daughter of the murdered mother in the Keddie Murders.
The Meeks have contended for years that two other suspects were responsible for the murders, however law enforcement authorities have ruled out these suspects in light of new evidence which has come to light in recent developments.

Hearings have been set to hear the charges by the county attorney.

Craig claims Richard beat him up. Did Craig really not know that Richard had seen him dropping off the boys?

"FILM WRITER ARE YOU ACTUALLY SAYING THE MEEKS HAD
SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE MURDERS AND RICHARD USED
HIS FRIENDSHIP WITH STONEY AND DARRELL TO HAVE THEM
COME AFTER ME WHO TO THIS DAY RICHARD PROTECTS
AND DEFENDS BOTH STONEY AND DARRELL EVEN IF THEIR
NAMES ARE MENTIONED BRIEFLY. "

Craig are you saying that it was Stoney and Darrell who beat you up and not Richard?
