Remembering Dorothy & Faye Small Community's Story of Healing and Hope Reporter: Michael Wooten / WSAZ NewsChannel 3 It was the type of place where you could leave your doors unlocked and have faith that your family was safe. But in the small town of Bald Knob in Boone County, that changed some years back after a shocking crime. Exactly 17 years ago, 83-year-old Faye Jarrell and 66 year-old Dorothy Daniels were burglarized, beaten and brutally murdered. Their family, friends and neighbors were shocked then, and Sunday they showed they have not forgotten. The anniversay was very similar to that fall day in 1989, when police say the two women were found dead. "It was a day much like this -- a beautiful day and clear," said Boone County Sheriff Rodney Miller. "The sun was out, and the leaves were out and turning." But Sheriff Miller said the shocking crime turned the community upside down. "In the onset, the community was in terror." "It really tore our family apart," said Gary Daniels, the son of Dorothy Daniels. "It's just, you can't put it in words." Sheriff Miller investigated the case 17 years ago. He arrested and help convict Paul and Teddy Walker, two young men now spending their lives behind bars. But Sunday's service was about remembering Dorothy and Faye. "She had the most beautiful hair," said friend Joan McDorman. "She was always so faithful to the church." Family and friends even signed a letter addressed to the murderers offering, of all things, forgiveness! "I think they would both say to forgive and go on, I really do," said McDorman. So with hand-written messages sent to the heavans and a memorial in their honor, the church and the community said goodbye. Faye Jarrell's son Roger said, "We love her, we miss her, but we've got her in our hearts. That can't be taken away." Many other family members fo both Faye and Dorothy were at Sunday's service. Many have moved away, but they say they will forever be connected to the community of Bald Knob, and they are very thankful that folks in the community have not forgotten about this tragedy.
