Lionel Keith MCKASKLE

Mallettown Cemetery
Conway County,
Arkansas

Oct 13, 1944 - Nov 10, 1988


November, 1988 Keith McKaskle
Keith McKaskle, who was allegedly at the tracks that night, turned over information he had about the boys' murders to Richard Garrett. Believing he had talked to the wrong people, McKaskle had made his own funeral arrangements, told family and friends good bye, and within days was murdered himself - stabbed 113 times. His murder remains unsolved.

In August 1989, Ronald Shane Smith was sentenced to ten years for the 10 November 1988 murder of Keith McKaskle. McKaskle had earlier expressed fears for his life, linking them to his knowing something about "the railroad track thing". Smith may have been paid to kill McKaskle, as a prison inmate said he had been approached and offered $4,000 to kill McKaskle himself.
