He is now the Southeast regional director for the new National Missing and Unidentified Persons System. https://lancasteronline.com/news/local/man-obsessed-with-naming-the-dead-helps-on-elizabethtown-john-doe-case/article_4d9e8b7a-70b2-11e4-a88e-a718213f9f7c.html

On April 23, 1998, the Scott County Sheriff’s Office announced that “Tent Girl” had been identified. The long unidentified victim was Barbara Ann Hackmann Taylor. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbara_Ann_Hackmann_Taylor

Barbara “Bobby” Ann Hackmann’s family decided to leave her remains in Georgetown, KY where she had lain, unidentified, for 30 years. Because her now deceased husband, Earl Tayler, is suspected of having killed Barbara his last name was left off of her tomb stone. https://horrorhistory.net/2019/05/17/the-body-of-tent-girl-found/

Bobby Mackey’s Music World is a nightclub and honky tonk located in Wilder, Kentucky, owned by country singer Bobby Mackey. https://completely-kentucky.fandom.com/wiki/Bobby_Mackey%27s_Music_World

Being quoted as the most haunted nightclub in America, the building has quite the history. From it’s start as a slaughter house to its years as a mob run establishment, there are quite a few deaths associated with the building. https://kyforky.com/blogs/journal/haunted-places

The drain from the original slaughterhouse is now the basement of Bobby Mackey’s. It is believed to be the former site of Satanic cult rituals. Could it be a portal to hell? https://local12.com/cincinnati-refined/bobby-mackeys-music-world-wilder-kentucky-haunted-bar-ghost-paranormal-activity#photo-20
