In the middle of my morning snort, the talking head on the idiot box (CBS Detroit) got my attention with a story on this murdering thug, John Kelly Gentry, Jr. You can read the whole story in Age Progressed Photo Shows Fugitive On The Run For Michigan Murder Since 1983.
I mentioned Gentry in passing in a previous post. I knew John Gentry back in 1969, and he was a little strange then. I (rightfully) believed he was dangerous and so didn't hang around with him. Later on he allegedly committed two murders, one by using an ax. Not being completely stupid, he stole a car and fled the area. And that was that.
Personally, I think it's likely that Gentry either crossed over into Mexico and is living out his life south of the border, or he ran up against someone who was a lot like he was, and his body hasn't been found - and probably never will be. If he's alive, I'd like to see him caught, then given a fair trial and a fine hanging.
If you see Gentry or know where he is, call Detective Jeff Smith at (734) 240-7530.
