Distressing Find: Magnet Fisherman Cracks Cold Case Mysteries

In McRae-Helena, on Old Prison Camp Road, tucked away on the peaceful waters of Horse Creek, an apparently ordinary past time took a terrifying turn. Unintentionally fanning the flames of a cold case that had troubled authorities for years, a magnet fisherman discovered shards of a long-buried tragedy in the ripples and murmurs of the creek.

When Bud and June Runion set out on a quest that was supposed to end with the acquisition of a classic Ford Mustang, it was 2015. But what had started out as an optimistic mission ended in unspeakable horror. An internet advertisement inspired their trip, which put them in the path of a dangerous plot headed by Ronnie “Jay” Towns. The Runions experienced terrible death and violence in place of the promised automobile, which was simply a mirage.

The memory of their premature deaths hung over the search for justice for almost ten years. But even truths buried far beneath the surface of time, fate has an odd way of revealing. In April 2024, the magnet fisherman unintentionally unearthed a treasure of clues while enthralled by lost artifacts. Alongside the Runions’ personal belongings—their IDs, credit cards, and phone—was a.22 caliber rifle, a quiet witness to the atrocities of the past.

These apparently unremarkable relics gave a long-dormant research fresh life by a collision of fate and coincidence. Said to be assembling the pieces of a broken puzzle, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation moved quickly to take advantage of this unexpected discovery. They followed the strands of evidence with painstaking accuracy to a house tucked away on Webb Cemetery Road.

With the seriousness of a search for the truth, what followed added still another piece to the jigsaw. Agents rummaged through historical trash, removing “evidence” that suggested unreported mysteries and concealed facts. Every carefully listed and examined object carried the weight of a long-suppressed story.

The hazy future of the Runions lifted as the tangles of the past did. Once relegated to whispers and speculation, their story is about to be resolved. But in the middle of the much anticipated trial, there’s a sobering reminder of lives lost and unrealized dreams.
