In 1949, Raymond Chandler observed that a detective story is a tragedy with a happy ending. But there is no happy ending here. Maybe it is as Edgar Allen Poe suggested in “The Man of the Crowd” (1840): “There are some secrets which do not permit themselves to be told… mysteries which will not suffer themselves to be revealed. Now and then, alas, the conscience of man takes up a burthen so heavy in horror that it can be thrown down only into the grave.”

From the Statement of Billy Ben Carroll

I further wish to state that on July 10, 1970, which was the day before Paula was reported missing, she, Lonnie Bell, and I had spent the evening together. This came about because Paula knew I was fond of a musical group called Austen and Garf and they were playing at the Nowhere Lounge and earlier in the week she had told me to keep Friday night open and the three of us would go to the Nowhere Lounge.

Austin & Garf: “Mary Nell Blair” (Garf)

Arranged by: Garf

Produced by Willie Kyle
