61 Justice for Erik Cross

In 1983 the battered body of Erik Cross was found in a ditch in front of his house. He’d been beaten, dragged behind a car and finally run over, his body left on the edge of the road.

In the 34 years since his death, the Cross family has waited for an arrest in the case. In the last few years, an army has assembled, hoping to bring the perpetrator or perpetrators to justice.

 

They’ve waited 34 years for justice

 

In 2016 law enforcement named a group of suspects that they believe are involved in Eric’s death. This included Bill Cook, Tim Martin, Amber Thomas and Brent Spaulding:

  1. Hey I’m a big fan of the podcast but this last episode is sort of insane with this lady from Eric’s army or whatever. It seemed that the entire time she spoke, it was nothing but gossip and hearsay and not 1 oz of actual evidence that proved that any of those people actually committed that murder. And just because someone is homeless and has a history of alcoholism doesn’t mean that he’s capable of brutally murdering somebody and covering it up for 20-something years. I have no dog in this and am merely a spectator but this was fairly irritating to listen to as this lady riled up ready to crucify a man excuse me a couple men or group as she keeps referring to them for a murder then starts in like she’s talking to her friend at a nail shop with the latest gossip. I mean I understand some of that for a judge of character but come on, but I didn’t hear one ounce of actual evidence like why are these people specifically involved. I mean I’m sure that there’s a reason why nothing was said like I’m sure it’s going to court or something like that but the podcast suffered and it seemed like an assassination piece on someone’s character more than anything. But anyways I still love the podcast this episode wasn’t very good and I feel bad for that Eric guy may he rest in peace and they find his actual killer.

    1. The police have named the people discussed in the episode as “persons of interest” in Erik’s murder. Spaulding has never cooperated with law enforcement and his father make steps to conceal the vehicle Spaulding drove the night of Erik’s murder, preventing law enforcement from searching or examining the vehicle.

  2. What a horrible town, shame on them for their “conspiracy of silence!” How can they live with themselves, especially since they probably have children of their own now? May everyone involved in this live the miserable lives they deserve. I hope justice will eventually be served. Bless his family.
