Country music singer Bobby Mackey owns “Bobby Mackey’s Music World” in Wilder, Kentucky. This Campbell County institution is globally renown for a variety of tragedies and horrific events.
[Collected from various sources] Scott Jackson and Alonzo Walling murdered Pearl Bryan in 1896. The two Satanists decapitated her head and disposed of it in the offal disposal chute, or “well” of the old slaughterhouse.
Jackson’s trial went from April 21 through May 14. The prosecution had 113 witnesses, his defense had 83.
Both Jackson and Walling authored a final confession the day before the hanging. Their letters were supposed to go to Governor William Bradley’s office.
Pearl Bryan’s skull turned up in quite a few places, but never in the “well” at Bobby Mackey’s. A female skull was found in the field where her body laid later.
As with many controversial cases in history, rumors of a curse emerged in the years following the trial and execution. Some people claim it was Walling’s curse, because he was innocent, and some claim it was Jackson’s for the same reason.
[Collected from various sources] The slaughterhouse fell into decay as the years passed by. No one wanted it.
