State Police are serving a murder warrant on "Tattoo" Vince Golosow, 41, of Tariff, Roane County. Golosow is being charged with the murder of Poca Road resident Judson Reid, 52, whose decomposed body was found on Pisgah Ridge near the Town of Clay.

Reid's murder appears to be linked to drug trafficking. Gosolow is already being held in South Central Regional Jail on drug and weapons charges.

It was unclear why a warrant was being served, since his case was to have been presented to a Roane County grand jury in January, 2002.

Reid, who had been staying with "Tattoo" Vince, was shot in the head before his body was dumped in the remote Clay County area. The car in which the body was likely transported was found burned, several miles away on "Murder Mountain" in the Ovapa-Gannies Creek areas of Clay and Roane County.

An informant, now identified as Sandra Khalaf, indicated to police another murder took place at the Golosow farm, but authorities said no other body has been found.

According to a search warrant, Kahalaf said she did not witness Reid's actual murder, but said Golosow intimidated her into cleaning up blood and human matter inside the residence. She did identify the corpse as Reid.

Speculation continues regarding the mysterious disappearance of Roane resident 18-year-old Christian Dawn Starcher Seabolt, who was an acquaintance of Golosow. She has not been seen since she left a Spencer apartment for a pack of cigarettes the last of August. Her family fears she is dead.
