Twenty-Four Hours Later: Another Body Surfaces in Roaring Creek Blood Feud

Steven “Deeds” Hyde

There is a third murder in the Roaring Creek area tonight. The dismembered body of fifty-one year old Roaring Creek resident Steven “Deeds” Hyde was found in a shallow grave at a farm belonging to Russell Hyde in Camalote sometime this afternoon. Police are not responding to requests for information, but News Five has been able to confirm that Hyde’s hands, feet and head were cut off and those body parts were found in the grave with him. This cruel murder is the second in similar fashion in a matter of days, and there is another eerie connection. Both men were very close affiliates of Russell Hyde whose common-law-wife, Roselia Galvez, was gunned down a little over a week ago. Steven, Russell’s cousin, actually lived with him on the farm where his body was found, and when he was last seen at five p.m. on Monday, that’s where he was heading. This evening, Hyde’s family was preparing a casket to bury his already decomposing remains when we spoke to his niece off camera.

 

Voice of: Niece of Murder Victim

“My aunt told us that he was missing. So we want in to the police station and made the missing person’s report. At the time doing the missing person’s report, we got the bad news that my uncle had passed away.”

“Have any of you guys, has the family gone to the scene?”

 

Voice of: Niece of Murder Victim

“No, we haven’t been to the scene, because the police brought his body out before we could have gone there.”

 

Mike Rudon

“Has police told you in what condition they found him?”

 

Voice of: Niece of Murder Victim

“They found his body with missing hands, missing feet, but they found all his pieces in a shallow grave already buried.”

 

Mike Rudon

“Now can you give me an idea. There was a murder; they found a body in a similar condition just yesterday. What’s the connection between the two men?”

 

Voice of: Niece of Murder Victim

“Well the connection there…Steven Hyde and “Dudes,” they were best friends and they were associates with Russell Hyde. At the time, they were hanging out with Russell Hyde.”

 

Mike Rudon

“Could you give me an idea of what the family thinks happened?”

 

Voice of: Niece of Murder Victim

“Well we don’t know what exactly happened, but all we know is that we will leave everything in God’s hands. We are not a family of revenge and there is a God above. At the end of the day, no matter what someone has done, they do have someone that loves them. And all I know right now is that I’m hurt so bad that words can’t even explain how I am feeling. God will give me the strength and give us the strength and we will deal with it; we will get through it.”

 

Mike Rudon

“Now people are saying that these two murders, the guy Madrid and your uncle are related to the killing of “Chu Chuch” a week ago. Is that the belief of the family as well?”

 

Voice of: Niece of Murder Victim

“No sir; that’s not the belief of the family any at all. We don’t know what exactly occurred or what caused the death, but we can’t say anything at this present moment.”

 

Mike Rudon

“But you don’t believe that these two latest murders are related to the murder last week?”

 

Voice of: Niece of Murder Victim

“I don’t know so I can’t say anything about that at this present moment.”
