If anyone knows how to contact Rick Halliburton's former wife Susan Eads in Texas. Please put me in touch with her. Thanks for any help. I need later photos for Tammy who is Rick's daughter from his first marriage. randyfox70@yahoo.com
 
If anyone has any photos of Rick. He has a daughter named Tammy who last recollection of him is when she was three and he kiss her goodbye. Rick moved away from Illinois and left them and went to Texas. Tammy's son found my web and told his mother about it. She ask me to try to find photos and family stories about him. Please help her and her family with any info. She ask me to be the go between. So Please send me anything that will connect her to his relatives or friends for info. Thanks randyfox70@yahoo.com
 
I would like to say. Many a young man has got involved in illegal activity and stepped on the wrong toes. With each illegal project you are involved in. It will get easier and easier for you to do these bad things. One day you will teeter when you should have tottered and it will all come crashing down on you and you will die. You need to walk that fine line and not hurt your fellow man or you may end up like Rick and Marty.      
          Work hard, mind your business and save your money and live the straight life and you will increase your percentages.
 
Rick Halliburton and Marty Reed were killed for some unknown reason. They were executed organized crime style and were found at a chicken fighting pit parking lot. Bobby Smith took me out there and it was marked off with boundary crime tape. The place where their bodies were laying was traced with orange crime paint. I felt sorry for their families. If those two were guilty of anything. I'm sure their families were not involved. Rick and Marty should have given more thought to some of the things they did. They undoubtedly stepped on the wrong mans toes. Both of them were nice to me and I didn't have any trouble with either of them. They treated me good. So I like them but I had no dealings with them either. The rumor back then was that they were involved in three different things that could have caused their death. Yet no one will ever know. Someone wrote on this pedigree below that bitch dog named Sugar was involved in causing their death. That is hogwash. No one has ever proved this theory.

FARMERS BRANCH
The bodies of a Mesquite man and a Garland man were found in a river bottom here Sunday morning, both victims of an execution-style slaying.

Lewis Richard Halliburton, 28, 922 Tripp Road in Mesquite, and William Marshall Reed, 24, of 1533 Nash in Garland, were found dead, each with a pistol shot through the head, and each with hands tied behind the back with neckties.

Det. Capt. R. L. Kitchens and Det. Sgt. M. A. Brown said hunters discovered the double murder on a campground sometimes used by Girl Scouts off Valley View Road at the Elm Fork of the Trinity River.

Billfolds and watches were still on the bodies, leading police to believe robbery was not the motive. The bodies were believed to have been in the field about eight hours.

Halliburton, a commerical painter, and Reed were last seen at a cock fight about midnight Saturday night off Highway 114 and California Crossing Road, police said.

Sheriff's Lt. Johnny Webb and Sheriff's Sgts. Troy McKenzie, Bill Elliott, and Benny Barrett, assisting police, said the crime may stem from a theft more than a week ago of a champion dog used in dog fights.

A Kleberg man and his wife were held prisoner and beaten for more than 12 hours after the theft until the stolen dog was returned, Mesquite records show.

Lawmen were seeking two men in their late 20's for questioning in the double murder.

Murders Linked to Dog Fighting
By Robert Finklea
The execution-style murders of two men late last year have been linked to the "sport" of dog fighting.

The deaths of Lewis Richard Halliburton of Mesquite and William Marshall Reed of Garland last Dec 30 are reported to have been the result of the theft of a "pit bull" used in dog fighting. The slayings are under investigation by the Farmers Branch police.

The news reported in copyrighted stories Sunday and Monday that the Dallas-Fort Worth Metropolitan area is the main center of underground dog fights in the nation.

Halliburton, 28, and Reed, 24, were found shot to death at a campground on the Elm Fork of the Trinity River, off Valley View Road in Farmers Branch.

Sources said the two were suspected of having stolen a champion "pit bull" from a Kleberg man more than a week before they were found dead, shot in the head, their hands tied behind their backs with neckties.

The two men, who Farmers Branch police said had criminal records, were last seen at a cockfight in the Trinity River bottoms off Northwest Highway. Their car was later found abandoned on Stemmons Freeway.

Another source told The News that the two were killed because they had an internal dispute with other unidentified parties over criminal activities.

Both men were allegedly owners of champ "pit bulls" and were mentioned frequently in two underground dog fighting publications, including "Pit Dog Reports," a dog fighting magazine published in Dallas.

In Washington, D. C. Sen Harrison A. Williams, Jr., D-N. J., announced Monday that he has introduced a bill in Congress to make dog fighting a federal crime.

And an aide to Rep. Tom Foley, D-Wash., announced that Foley, chairman of the House subcommittee on grain and livestock will hold a hearing Oct. 1 that will explore the practice of dog fighting.

"Although all of our states have laws prohibiting dog fighting, the fact that the practice transcends state boundaries and is increasing indicates that additional measures are warranted," Sen. Williams said.

If passed, the law would subject violators to a maximum penalty of $1,000 fine and one year in jail.

Intensive and extensive investigations are currently being conducted by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the American Dog Owner's Association. Both agencies have confirmed The News' Investigation that dog fighting is more active in the metropolitan area than in any other region.

The News' Investigation revealed that heavy gambling, prostitution and the carrying of guns are prevalent at the dog fights, which promoters call "dog shows" or "conventions."

A dog fight in Tarrant County was raided last year by the Texas Rangers and officers of the Texas Department of Public Safety. Sources said indictments were secured against some of the dog fighters, but Col. Wilson Speir, head of the DPS, said he was not aware of any indictments.

Promoters of the dog fights are reported to earn as much as $3,000 to $8,000 per night, and the ADOA said recently that a ring of dog fights operates in six Southwestern states, handling as much as $90,000 in bets on weekends.

I need pictures of Dick Harp and his dogs. Please and Thanks

Below is some history on Dick Harp. He is not part of the above story.

Dick Harp fought a dog into my brother and I. He used a bad dog he had back in the late 60's or early 70's. I'm not sure about the date. Dick had a bad dog that he had fought around Texas and Oklahoma. He litterally murdered his opponents. Bandit was the dog we used. Bandit whipped Dicks dog by holding the ear and running backwards. He lost his holt once and the dog got in his chest and really hurt him bad. Bandit got him off and held that ear till Dicks dog quit. I think it went around 47 minutes. It took Bandit a long time to get over the wounds in the chest but he finally did. 

 

Dick Harp, 59, of Amarillo, died Tuesday, June 19, 2001.

Services will be at 3 p.m. today at Second Baptist Church with Dr. Charles Jones, pastor, officiating. Burial will be in Memorial Park Cemetery. Arrangements are by Boxwell Brothers Funeral Directors, 2820 Virginia Circle.

Mr. Harp was born in Amarillo and had been a lifetime resident. He was reared at Boys Ranch. He was a sheet metal foreman for Mayfield Roofing Company. He was a member of Second Baptist Church. He married Tammy Vaughn on March 12, 1982. He and Tammy have nurtured many children through the years and have touched many lives.

He was preceded in death by his father, two sisters and four brothers.

Survivors include his wife, Tammy Harp of Amarillo; three sons, Darrel Harp, David Baldock and Dustan Harp of Amarillo; six daughters, Jennifer Harp, Mary Gail McKee, Amanda Harp and Linda, Diana and Dante of Amarillo ; mother, Mary Garrison of Amarillo; two sisters, Rita Leniq of Amarillo and Ebbie Vaughn of Garland; eight grandchildren; and one great-grandchild

HARP, RICHARD LA VON who was 24 (born ABT 1943) married 20 APR 1967 in POTTER COUNTY, TEXAS, U.S.A. a bride named SHIRLEY JEAN BARCLAY who was 23 (born ABT 1944). 2,157,981
HARP, RICHARD L who was 31 (born ABT 1942) married 7 OCT 1973 in POTTER COUNTY, TEXAS, U.S.A. a bride named BILLIE J FORD who was 20 (born ABT 1953). 2,157,978

HARP, RICHARD L who was 37 (born ABT 1942) married 12 SEP 1979 in POTTER COUNTY, TEXAS, U.S.A. a bride named DONNA R KIZER who was 23 (born ABT 1956). 2,157,979
Here’s why you should check the source file (free), then search Archives and PeopleSmart for RICHARD L HARP.

HARP, RICHARD L who was 40 (born ABT 1943) married 12 MAR 1983 in POTTER COUNTY, TEXAS, U.S.A. a bride named TAMMY M VAUGHN who was 22 (born ABT 1961). 2,157,980
981
 
I believe all of these to be Dick Harp. You notice the approximate date of birth varies. That depends on who is doing the estimate. Tammy must have suited him and he must have suited her. He stayed with her till his death.
