Ray Burns
b: 27 JUL 1910
d: 8 SEP 1985
Biography
Grandpa Ray was said to be a very "evil" man.
He killed his own nephew, Willie Collins on 14 Aug 1949 in Leslie County, Kentucky, USA, by shooting him MULTIPLE TIMES. His story of the shooting was that Willie was drunk and that he attacked him while they were on the way to Willies home (on horseback). However, the mere number of gunshot wounds Willie suffered would tend to lead people to not believe that story. Grandpa Ray spent several years in prision for the murder.
Another story has him stabbing an "unnamed" friend of the family several times merely because the man touched his hat. This story comes from his daughter Helen who witnessed the event.
