On September the fifteenth of two thousand and eleven the entry by Hodges was almost too good to believe. Since there was no email address I didn't know if it was legitimate or just someone else trying to screw up the website, which has happened in the past.

Then the next day two more guest book entries, one being private asking what I knew about Gary Hodges involvement in the murders.

Through some checking, I found out the entries were coming from an address owned by Lara Hodges. My sources were this was a twenty-one year old female and that would make her about five or six years old when the murders occured.

Adults think children are in their own little world and talk about things they think little ears have no interest in. Many times they are wrong. This, I believe, is one of those times. I don't think Lara would make the statement "Earl Bramblett did not kill the Hodges." unless she was certain of that.

I have kept the secret of her name until now. I have pleaded with her to tell what she knows to a lawyer or law enforcement outside of the Roanoke Valley. I have appealed to her conscience and sense of what is right. What I got is asking me to please not contact her further.

It is time we got the truth from someone that knows.

Hi Lara, There was something in your conscience that made you contact my Guest Book with your revelation.That will always be nagging at you to do the right thing before things in your life fall into place.Bad things are going to start happening to you, maybe they already have started, until you get this out in the open.Knowing what you know of the crime and carrying that around is burden I'm happy I don't have.Don't let it wreck your life, tell someone that can do something about it. Doug

Because I ask one simple question bad things are going to start happening to me? Is that a threat? Obviously you got the wrong impression on what I was trying to do.  Please do not contact me further!

April 24, 2011 My email to Lara

Hi Lora,

This is a threat and this is it. Unless you start talking to me I am going to put all your emails on the website telling who you are.
Now tell me about Gary and why you asked about him and what else you know about the Hodges murders..

Doug
