  • FBI makes arrest in 39-year-old crime

    Over 39 years ago, Mary Gene Bailey French and her husband, Royal, were ending a beautiful vacation in the Hawaiian Islands.

    The splendor of the trip was marred in the days ahead by a story shrouded in mystery, deception, betrayal and murder.

    Mrs. French's father, Gene Bailey, and three of his friends, were bushwhacked eight miles from Williston as they drove home from Ocala after having dinner.
