Four men are murdered in Bucyrus in four separate incidents that police believe are connected. And a suspect is in custody. One of the victims is 55-year- old Billy Jack Chatman, who was found dead in his home at 1308 Fremont Street A 67-year-old man was also found dead Monday in his apartment at Bucyrus Manor. Then Tuesday morning, another man was found dead in his home in the 200 block of West Mansfield Avenue, and the fourth man was at the Bucyrus Plaza Apartments. The chief says the suspect in all four killings turned himself in. He says a small town like Bucyrus doesn't see this kind of serious crime very often. A neighbor of Billy Jack Chatman says he was a kind and caring person. No charges have been filed yet, as Bucyrus Police and Ohio B-C-I investigate the crime scenes. Autopsies will be done on the bodies of all four men.
