Yeah you've got the sun saying shoes and Trou- it doesn't turn out well Susan's family Last Housing Utah Josh Woodside Delivering Polio in the same house as the father with his father Louis is he got a big mouth but he meant the data must didn't tell them nothing about being quiet about it you would have thought that the daddy would have been leased needed that guess what there were no human remains and believe that it could have been just in ancient bureau site but that theory was quickly ruled out since father was a bother that's what I said was awarded custody of the children the way for Joshua to regain custody and no just saying like young girls and Sues Oh okay could you set including Nevada ignore now how call your boo onto their boss and rejected these false claims publicly September was father got it they thought it was a good idea for Joschka would get cuts in no that's not at all what I said I said Suzie okay now we can't say nothing about Tommy this yes or mommy oh never combine the life that's what I would remind me we'll come back to you rock thing Oh was awarded what do you have a question dia would you please read that so since Josh don't you what we got licensed y'all will get something from me but that's why we're keeping you around you wouldn't get nothing from US I know that responding to more serious calls and said that an officer would call her will the time that she ever got that call from officer took over five minutes asking her what her location was he told her that he would send someone there after and we're back I'm GonNa tell you during the break drew let me borrow the leggings and they are comfortable I got I could wear these carbon monoxide poisoning all that's horrible after hacking the boys he went into the kitchen turned on the gas stove there are also two gas cans at the back of the floor pay attention it is believed that Michael and Joshua were working together to kill Susan but to this day Michael Powell killed himself it is no Michael was the brother of Joshua I'm sorry sorry the family Ajaj was said that he contacted them while he was in the house to say his goodbyes February eleventh two thousand thirteen that was quite stored thank you thank you for your compliment and therefore quick break do your do there's no closure whatsoever nothing except for anybody exactly that's I think that's bull but that's crazy listen the Rafiq part is what happened in the house before them though Joshua had grabbed a hatchet and continued to be Charles should have been the number one operator kill them basically to me to me I feel like because by the time for police stupid Lalla Gate and shit around by the number one dispatcher even though that made no sense you know he was really know fricking hill now here's a loser Susan still remains missing so no closure there you thump thump Thum so sad your own anyway whatever and it's time for my story okay else that he emptied into the home might what's the purpose of doing it to the kids I don't know but he then lit the lighter and Bam I do I just wanted to reach through the phone and stabbed that mother dogs call he could've dispatched the police from the very beginning her gps but she gave him the address but then she was like how long does it you can look up this nine one one call but it's like ten minutes long it's two of them and it sucks use a mass I really feel like the nine one one operator roles emperor radim with it all causing deep wounds into their heads and neck alway always were not dip because at the hatchet g causes death was take and he said Ma'am sorry we'd have to dispatch cost for life threatening and and she said well this is life threatening assaulted long and not even know that I'm wearing things they look great they're comfortable and they're cool don't let him fool you adding get any he got him own self appeared there were calling Bam boom that's a really small bay they were gonna Bam knock better they were going again well all right okay surely some of Y'all out there it recognizes that song I never heard him it's a great folk song but it is Tom Dooley and most people that's all they know is a song but there's a story behind it it is about a real man named Thomas C Dula and Thomas Dula was born on June twenty second of eighteen forty five to a poor appalachian the Appalachian Trail Appalachian trail family in Wilkes County North Carolina eighteen forty five men in the world do people even anyway is whether any given me all I really do think spoke route that is both Josh and the kids were killed in the explosion how do we even know this stuff shriveling up journal and Wrecker is an archives that's a while and newspapers for are we also are members of new newspapers dot com which goes back they have newspapers from eighteen hundreds really yeah if you would like to use them for any of your research a young Tom attended school and grew up playing with the female foster girls and who later became Milton and her cousins Laura in pauline and he was born to a poor Appalachian trail family in Wilkes County North Carolina he had two older brothers and one younger sister as a child and as the kids started growing up Tom and and became intimate in fact and mother found and goes eight hundred ninety nine they're crooks there was a woman and her husband had whipped her and so she got back at him at suppertime and hacked him in the head with the and do y'all Fang but don't do it two hundred eighty seven they don't do it too much but anyway on absolutely we have a we have and if you would like ain't nobody born listen but if you are good for you yes you've come a long way honey the I think you can get some crazy stuff off you can't like some Alma Gosh in eighteen ninety his eighteenth birthday tom joined the confederate army he served as a private in company K in the forty second North Carolina Infantry Regiment until the war ended in eighteen sixty five it was a true backwoods boy he was a trooper letter Tom Dula was literate proven by the fifteen page account of his life that he wrote him being literate was highly unusual lot of bullshit may be Tom played the fiddle and he was considered to be quite the lady Abe's man plays the fiddle Tom did not escape the war unscathed he suffered various injuries Anna Stan as listener of war throughout the course of the war each of his brothers died in the war which left Thomas his mother sole remaining boy before the war battle of Gettysburg way but I felt am was supposed to be ambushed who he was caught in bed with exactly she married a yeah before he ran if murdered Laura foster because she was still in love with Tom and was jealous Laura was marrying him others believe that perhaps Tom New Jesus this is weird and cousin pauline foster testified that an had led her to the site of the grave one night dozen Laura on the morning of Eight may twenty fifth eighteen sixty six she quietly left her home where she lived with her father Wilson Foster forgave him the puck which is syphilis Omagh aw testimony indicated Tom believed law had given him Tom in bed together when am was only fourteen years old ooh thr- guess you grew up vast Batman three months before what happened that day many of the stories that have grown out of the folklore of the time implicate and Milton in some way some believe an or started and Mary James Milton a farmer and Cobbler who was a neighbor to both an Tom Melton also served in the civil war fighting in the yeah before he went will both men were taken prisoner and returned home alive shortly after arriving Home Dula resumed this relation suspected an had murdered foster but because he still loved and he refused to implicate her after he was arrested and took the blame for the murder X. who yet and they use a lot of access to all right anyway Thomas do he was born in June twenty second eighteen forty five and took off on his horse bill never to be seen alive again while it is not known for certain Tom and Ann for syphilis yeah wow as he also did pauline foster really witnesses testified in court that Tom made the incriminating statement he was going to do in whoever can ship with an given its reputation as liberty it did not take Dula long to also begin an intimate relationship with and philos- which he might have passed onto an oh my gosh so there's a lot of shit going on in Asia Tom Tom was a here everybody wanted Tom Speak Tom was doing an but thin an was doing second guy that she mary yes many believe that Tom may have caught the disease from pauline foster and passed it along to the other foster women they believed all that he caught it from war exactly whichever of the three kilter Okay Laura just poulain his kingdom for using who who exactly is falling pauline is an cousin okay so Laura right she an and Laura yes she's Christ Acting hundred Jesus the local doctor testified that he had treated both and Tom Paul he actually got up from Laura Laura is the one that got killed cheese the something else that twenty-something maybe well yet twenty seven I think the mind would be longer okay I just talk about Winfrey vacation yes I understand she had been stabbed once in the chest wow the gruesome nature of the murder combined suit yes I think the Tom and killed her were pauline per the doctor was the first one that was to treated for syphilis Oh my God what I'm thinking is pauline gave it a Tom. Tom Gave it to Laura now not Laura and is decomposed body was found in shallow grave in which her legs were drawn up in order for her to fit in the hole so it was kind of like she was cannonball in it will give an harsh poverty of his upbringing while fifteen pages I don't know my life story would last fifty days engine and led to the enduring notoriety of the crime and ops go through bone very hard yes isn't odd Colonel James Grayson under the assumed name of Tom Hall across the State Line in Trade Tennessee grayson would not really no fifteen pages yeah really not much to be honest with you okay well he didn't live for very long I'm GonNa tell you he was only thirty thousand over the end he will in his shame on her husband with Tom then Tom went back to an so am was with Tom and the other guy and Tom Os lean and oh yeah he was okay then that's three people it sure is exactly so then Tom gave it to Laura in then Tom then in return gave it Dan Dan he wasn't doing lor why not wholly no within you got me all confused I said so then Tom was with pauline beyond was doing an and let me Tom was laying out everywhere he was dipping to pee everywhere cow end the slang is unclear but he fled before her body was found when he was declared a suspect working for time born in eighteen forty five he was executed eighteen sixty eight Jesus this awhile that's only under foreclosure as a romantic rubble of Tom's but this was not true it was simply an incorrect inference drawn from the lyrics and with the low murder rate of place and numerous rumors that circulated in the small backwoods town when she was killed captured the public's in two thousand one Tom Dula was quote unquote acquitted of all charges after serious after Salaam you know because in the song says if it weren't for Grayson something yeah okay and became more widespread as the wow luck you just say it's got it from and all lanes and gave it to more than gave it to an remember Laura was who they thought go Mary Yeah The Bulacan bans represented him pro bono and maintained Tom Dulles innocence of the charges he succeeded Cottin was set free and on Thom Dulas Word Melton was acquitted of the crime so an Melvin was acquitted because he said that she had acts of the case were largely forgotten Grayson did however help the will county policy bring Tom Dula in wants his identity do you love was convicted and although given a new trial on appeal he was convicted again his supposed accomplice John All lanes yes that's the other girl he was doing way I forgot the one that died falling the one that got killed yes the one that got shield nothing to do with it I think they got this all he was executed nearly two years after the murder on May first eighteen sixty eight so he was she was discovering he got to be joking me but they didn't
