Body in a Barrel? Fayette County’s Strange Case

Body in a Barrel? Fayette County’s Strange Case

 

A sensational murder case has finally been put to rest (at least on the state level) by a decision of the Kentucky Supreme Court.

You may remember the case. The  killer, Robert Markham Taylor stuffed the body of the victim, Alex Johnson in a barrel after killing him and dumped the barrel and the body in the Kentucky river. Apparently it was a drug related killing as Taylor went to Johnson’s home after the killing and hauled away two garbage bags with approximately 26 pounds of marijuana in them

I watched some of the trial and it was definitely interesting. I guess only a criminal defense attorney would call a murder trial interesting. The defense and prosecution did a good job. It was a tragic case.
