The 18-year-old girl left her mother Vickki Starcher's apartment on August 31,
2002, telling her she was going out to get a pack of cigarettes.
She has not been seen since.
Now comes some startling accusations by a Clay County woman Renee Boyd
(pictured right) of Ovapa's "Murder Mountain." She is the long-time girlfriend of
Tommy Young, Sr., who is currently in jail for shooting Boyd's brother Richard
After a week of gunfire on Murder Mountain, Boyd claims her brother and his

Cummings and Khalaf were key witnesses in the murder case against Tattoo
Vince Gosolow, who was found guilty of murdering Roane Countian Judd
A Creston, Wirt County man, Russell Davis, 45, who was arrested a few days

Since the Starcher Seabolt's disappearance, family members have feared she
is dead. Unsubstantiated stories in the community connected her to Tattoo
Rumors circulated that the missing woman had been killed by individuals
connected to the murder case, and her body was fed to a large 750 pound hog
on the Gosolow farm.
Starcher's mother says she still doesn't know what became of her daughter,
but there is one thing she does know. She told Spencer Newspapers her
daughter was not caught up in a drug and murder case that has kept people
The missing girl's father, "Moe" Starcher of Spencer, believes differently, and
has been relentless in trying to find some answers.
Trooper First Class M. T. Baylous told the Clay Communicator "I can say that at

"no other body was found" when Golosow's residence was searched by the
State Police and FBI on October 18th.
Baylous said Trooper Doug Starcher of the Spencer Detachment was
investigating the Seabolt disappearance.

Communicator "Richard is suppose to be a big bad killer ... he's involved with
all the killings ... I'm scared."
"Richard was involved in the Judd Reid killing. He told me, it was out of his own
mouth, he and Sandy (Khalaf) ate 'b - - - h burgers' from the woman's body.
