I really dont know much about it, besides he was ran down, around pondis and drug up to Carter Lumber... Kicked from under the car and they left him there.

It Happened early morning Oct 21st It was my wedding day, so no one told me, til late that night. I never made it to see him before he was already gone. wish I could be more help. Theres not many photos of him either since his parents house burnt down a few mths ago. I grabbed that out of my 2000 yearbook at the career center. Ill let my dad know so he can tell my aunt, (Joeys Mom) that hes on your t-shirts and flyers.

No kids should be on this website. Their cases should take priority over the adults as far as I am concerned. It is bad enough that there are so many unsolved murders in Columbiana County. But to have three kids on this list is a crime in itself. It is these kids that I cater to. It is their buttons I wear. It is their flyers I push out to people. If we solve no other cases on this growing list, the kids need justice. They were just kids. Murder should never have come to them. Who knows what kind of life Joey might have made for himself. Who knows where he would be today. He never got to show any one. His killers are out there somewhere. As long as we are doing this, we will find them. Some one some where knows something about this horrific crime. And we are out there to find them.

Joey was a good friend & a wonderful young man! I was unaware until I saw your booth at the Appleseed that his homicide is still unsolved. I hope his killers are found. He would have done anything for anyone and did not deserve to be hit & left like he was. I wish we had more young men like Joey in this world.

I didn't know or even hear of Joeys story until becoming involved with C.C.F.H.V. but since he has become very dear to my heart.
He, like my cousin Louise, was only 17 years old and had his whole life ahead of him. Everyone I've met who knew Joey said wonderful things about him.
Which makes me wonder even more how someone could be so cruel.
Accidents happen and we have to learn to deal with them. But to just leave him there in the middle of the road to die is nothing less than heartless!
I know people in this area know who did this and I just ask you to take a moment to stop and really think if Joey were someone you loved. How would you feel? What would you want? All we want for Joey and all of our victims is justise and closure.
Anyone with any information can remain anonymous. If you don't want to use your computer. go to a public Libery, use a payphone, write a letter. Whatever you have to do but kindly don't be like the cruel, heartless person who left Joey there to die.
To Jemmifer and the rest of Joeys family, my heart goes out to you. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

thanks for all the support on my cousins case, its really sad that he didnt get to graduate from highschool. He was a great guy and he would do anything for anyone. I wish they would find out who done this also. I dont know how they can live with their selves. or self. who ever it was that done it. I hope one day they find whoever done it. His family has been threw so much recently, losing there home in a house fire.

Joey Gilmore was drug from up by Pondi's and down around the corner by the second gate of Carter . Lumber where he was drug out from under the car and left in the road like a dog. We treat our animals better than that. We know that there were two guys and a girl in the car that hit him.My sister Debra's Bail bonds had a poster in her office abouy it. The car that hit Joey was supposedly at the highway patrol to be tested and they knew who was in the car, but nothing was done. We have heard that the car the guy was driving belonged to his mother, and he was told to bring it in. They brought in another car, they junked the one that hit joey. That is why nothing was found in the one they brought. This has been turned over to the proper authorities to. I just think that who ever did this is a piece of crap and I don't know how anyone could sleep at night knowing that they did this. If this was my son I would be camped out at the sherrif Dept until I got justice,I would not rest until I found the person and got him put in jail. Jennifer is my niece, and Debra's daughter. Her dad is Joey's Uncle, Gary Beverly.Hopefuly something will be done soon.I know how they feel, as I lost my son a year later to a brain bleed. There wasn't anything anyone could do for my son, but at least he wssn't murdered. He was only 21yrs old. My son's name was also Joseph.

If you know who the car belongs to and know that 'they' brought in another car, then you know who the driver was. You would also know where the original car is, and to the best of my knowledge, the originial car was searched and confirmed to be the vehicle involved. Proving who was driving at the time is what needs to be done. People know who was driving & ran over Joey, but the police need the proof, otherwise, he will just get off anyway.

Kimberly said...

Cheryl,
We have heard so many stories about that night. All of them seem to go back to that party that Joey had attended. Would you contact me? My email is
ghosting12@yahoo.com
There are parts to the story that need filled in and if you were there you might be able to help. The back of Joey's head was ground off. His shoulder blades, heels, and rear end were all ground off. And then he lived for three days after that. NO ONE DESERVES TO DIE THAT WAY.
Please help us find justice for this 17 year old kid. Please.
Kimberly

Wow to hit someone, drag them and then to take the body and lay it there is disgusting!! I'm guessing the person was drunk or on drugs and as to why they took off? First I have seen this sight and all these murders (especially the kids) sickens me. Columbiana County is a joke when it comes to solving murders. Plus seems like when they know who does commit the murder they just get to keep living a free life. This is what I noticed with atleast 3 of the murders so far.
