Tony Muncy ////// 36

TrueCrimeGarage.com 

In this episode we take an in depth look into a very strange cold case. Tony was a normal 15 year old boy, plenty of friends, had a girlfriend and a good sense of humor. Someone killed the boy and left his body on the side of the road and for some reason the killer had removed Tony's arms. Even more strange were the suspects. Police suspected a violent schizophrenic and not one but two serial killers. Who did this to the boy and who are these suspects. Nic and the Captain present the strange death of Tony Muncy and the investigation that followed.

    I am a proud supporter of the Garage; I bought this episode and it was as good, if not better, than ever. As much as I am addicted, with these cold cases, I find them equally...depressing? I long for resolution & closure ala "Law & Order" style. I wish we had that magic wand to view into who these victims saw do these horrific acts upon them. My heartfelt thoughts go out to each & every one of them-whether featured in your (wonderful) podcasts or otherwise. Tragedies are all around us - appreciate the blessings even more. I certainly do. Thank you for all the amazing work you do, Nic & Capt'n, on behalf of these victims.

    Nic and Captian, Another great episode. After a week of debating whether I should post my thought on this case, I made the decision to do it. I obviously have not seen any of the evidence and so this is just my thoughts based on having listened to the podcast as couple of times and should be taken as such. Something about this case gnaws at me. I cannot help but think that the killer was not a local crazy, vicious career criminal, or roving pedophile. I think it is the knife hole in the back of his shirt that stands out to me most. If it did not go through his jacket, that would tend to mean that he was somewhere with his jacket off. Clearly, he was somewhere that the killer had a lot of privacy and was able to clean, dispose of, or not have to worry about an enormous amount of blood. The other thing that gets to me is where and how Tony’s remains were left. The skid marks seems inexperienced, nervous, or panicky. It does not seem like that would fit any of the prime suspects. Additionally, it would appear that the killer was not looking to have Tony’s remains to be lost forever. As they were likely within a few hours of being placed, there was obviously not a lot of effort to conceal Tony’s remains. This train of thought leads me to wonder if the mutilation to Tony’s remains was not more an effort to make his remains transportable than for any other reason. An inexperienced killer, perhaps even by accident in a fit of rage or jealousy, would be concerned with dripping blood, which could be the motive for most of Tony’s blood being drained. Additionally, the description of the wounds to Tony’s abdomen and legs sound like they might have been the results of attempting to section his remains for transport. The killer may have realized he/she did not have the proper tools or stomach to accomplish what they were attempting and decided to go with three garbage bags put together. The gruesome nature of how Tony’s remains were found, obviously makes us want to believe that he fell prey to an unusual individual, but it possible he suffered the fate of most murder victim by being killed at the hands of someone he knew or someone that was associated with someone he knew. Perhaps, someone too small to move remains the size of Tony. Someone who had him in a private location, off guard or occupied. If you rule out drugs, money, and sexual molestation as the motives, that tends to leave things like jealousy, revenge, and pride. Sometime investigators look to hard at spouses/family members and miss evidence of other individuals involvement. Perhaps, in this case, the gruesome state of Tony’s remains led investigators to eliminate some suspects too quickly. Again this is just the thoughts I developed based on the way the facts were developed and not meant to be an indictment of anyone involved in the case. Tim

    Lots of facts in the case that was never released due to its still a open investigation. I would like to clear up one detail though... Dennis Emmers wasnt my brothers friend. His younger brother Harold Emmers was. Dennis lied about seeing my brother.

    Thanks John & sorry for your loss. In preparation for this episode I had to rely on all of the old newspaper articles as unfortunately there is little to no info about your brother's case on the web. Us covering the case may help to create a digital foot print for Tony and his cold case. I do think this could still be solved. One thing that has always bothered me... Do you think your brother went to see his "girlfriend?" As mentioned on the show I think it very well could have been someone from the school. I think about your brother's case several times a week. I collected everything I could find on the case 4 years ago. Tony reminds me from what little I know of him (newspapers) of myself when I was his age & I think that's why I've been haunted by the case. I'm sorry for using your mother's story about the dream(s).

    Hi guys, I have to say this was the best episode yet! John, I'm truly sorry for your loss. Some thoughts I've had through out this podcast was the girlfriend. I keep going back to that. Did he tell his family that he was seeing her or did he just tell his neighbor? Now with John saying that Dennis lied about seeing Tony, that also brings up another concern. I hope this case has resolution and brings the family some closure. Great job on discussing this case guys!

    Mike this is an old cold case that unfortunately was only covered in our local paper the year of the crime. You won't be able to find out anything else on Tony. That's why we really wanted to cover it. Seems like he has just been forgotten. You can find more info on the suspects we named on the Internet. Wickline has been put to death in Ohio. Eyler died of AIDS i think in prison in Illinois and Timothy Hall is hopefully still waiting for parole. Last time I checked he was denied parole a year or two ago. Cheers, Nic

    I listened to the podcast thinking the girlfriend was suspicious. But now, after reading the comments, Dennis appears the suspicious one. I tend to believe the mall sighting and wonder if the cops ever tried to identify the boys with Tony that night? Seems as if the sighting was legit then those boys have something to do with the murder if they never came forward and said he was with them that night.

    I became aware of this podcast through Facebook. After downloading the podcast and reliving the nightmare, I felt compelled to add to the story. Despite his (then, 9-10 year old brother's opinion - John Benjamin), Tony was my friend. The last time I talked to Tony was that Saturday morning when he woke me up for cigarettes. I would not have made plans with Tony for that fateful evening because I had to be at work until 11p-12a. The only person I could think of that could have possibly made plans with Tony was my brother, Harold. Unfortunately, we will never know if it was Harold because he died in an automobile accident 7 years ago. Tony's family was tight with mine. When the families wanted pictures done we did it together, at about the same time and with the same photographer. When Tony wasn't at home, he was usually at our house. To clarify about York Plaza, it was simply a small strip "mall" that only had a movie theater, fitness gym, pizza shop and a bar. That was it. If you drove down Livingston Ave (faster than the posted 35mph speed limit) you would miss it. It is my belief that Tony made it to the West Side and something happened to him while he was there. He had too many friends on the East Side that would ever let anything happen to him. In 1984 it cost .75/ride and .10/transfer, so the couple dollars his parents gave him would have easily gotten him there and back. If I had known he was going to the West Side he would not have gone on his own, I wouldn't have let him. I would have called off of work. I had been Tony's protector in high school from the bullies that pestered him and my brother, Harold, daily. I wasn't a big guy myself, but I was certainly bigger than both Harold & Tony. I met Tony in Sherwood. I was 1 1/2 years older than Tony and we met in middle school, when I was an upperclassmen and he was a lower classman. Harold wasn't even in junior high yet, he was still in elementary school. Harold & I shared a bedroom. So as friends would stay overnight, we would all camp out in the same room, but if someone was in trouble they knew I was the one to bail them out and I had backup. I believe the Delaware Co. Sheriff Dept focused their attention in the wrong direction; they were looking at my brother & I, instead of his girlfriend who was in custody at Rosemont (a juvenile facility). After Tony's death it was rumored that she had an ex-boyfriend that had been recently released from another juvenile detention facility. Again, unfortunately, she was a minor at the time and I had never met her and her identity is protected. In regards to the mental patient that was heard yelling, "John, John", clearly was not speaking about Tony. Tony's first name was John, yes, but he hated it. He did not go by John and when he introduced himself it was simply, "Tony". Four years ago, Rusty Yates, a detective at the Delaware County Sheriff's Office contacted me advising that he was reopening Tony's case and wanted to talk. Per Mr. Yates, they had DNA evidence that they wanted to check everyone against. They had three main suspects and they were wanting to rule anyone out. I submitted my DNA for analysis. To date, I have survived 7 heart attacks, a triple by-pass, mild stroke and leg amputation. I have sworn that I will not die until I learn who took Tony away from us.

    Thank you Dennis! Hang in there. We were trying to bring some attention back to Tony's case after all of these years. We were hoping to get some good discussion going on here from persons like yourself that are close to the case to maybe better piece together where Tony had gone that day/night. When is the last time you spoke with Tony's brother? He contacted the show but didn't seem to want to talk about the case other than to say there was a lot of bad reporting in the newspapers and a lot of stuff about the case was not known. The suspects we named in the podcast are a stretch, I'll give you that. All three were considered suspects in the eyes of the newspapers or the sheriff however and two of three the Muncy family said Tony "could" have known them. Any chance you think Tony may have known Wickline? Or would Wickline have been someone that would have been known to high schoolers or neighborhood teens? Thanks, Nic

    I really do appreciate your time and study reviewing Tony's case. As mentioned, it still haunts me today and I am very open to discussion with high hopes and lots of prayer that it may bring us closer to some closure for his family and friends. Last time I spoke to his brother was about 20 years ago, late 90's at least. It was a brief encounter because my youngest brother, Matthew, had stopped by his house and I was riding along. The only thing that was said was, "Hi". I imagine that it's probably too difficult for him to talk about Tony's case. After the Sheriff had contacted me just a few years ago, I had a long conversation with their Mom, where she was in tears for some of it. We were all so hopeful that they'd finally catch his killer. Wickline, it's scary how many rumors went around. What I recall, during the initial interviews with the Sheriff's Dept, is they stated Wickline was the girlfriend's ex! Tony was supposedly a witness to Wickline robbing the Shady Lane pharmacy. Which just happened to be caddie-corner from the COTA bus stop. I believe there's the possibility that Wickline killed Tony to tie off loose ends. But overall, no, I don't think Tony knew Wickline. We enjoyed our herb, Wickline was rumored to deal with the harder stuff that none of us were into. With the crowd we were in with, none of us knew Wickline. However, that's not to say that there wasn't the possibility that some of our classmates knew him, high school is too clique. To add to the two new suspects that Delaware Co. Sheriffs gave me Otto Smith (his Grandmother lived in the area who he visited frequently). Otto's name was given up by a jailhouse informant. Otto had made attacks on other kids in our group ; One he stabbed in the back! Eddie Cleveland was also from the neighborhood. Eddie sold herb and dated my (older) sister.

    I really do appreciate your time and study reviewing Tony's case. As mentioned, it still haunts me today and I am very open to discussion with high hopes and lots of prayer that it may bring us closer to some closure for his family and friends.

    Last time I spoke to his brother was about 20 years ago, late 90's at least. It was a brief encounter because my youngest brother, Matthew, had stopped by his house and I was riding along.

    I had always heard the rumor that Tony may have witnessed the robbery at the Pharmacy. I never knew the possibility that Wickline was the girl's ex. Didn't put that together. Wickline was 15 years older than Tony and the girlfriend. Are you sure you are not confusing him with someone else? Thanks, Nic

    I could have it confused, it was a long time ago. I think it was the most probable way Tony could have crossed paths with Wickline, but after my stroke some 10 years ago, some details are spotty. I'd hate to think that I'm wrong, but I am human. Even then, it was nothing back then for a younger girl to get involved with an older man, especially if he could hook her up. I still have no idea what she was in for, so it's clearly supposition.

    The location the body was found is 35 minutes straight up Sunbury Road from the Rosement Center. Sunbury Road is an old east side south north connector. Growing up on the northeast side, to "drive out to the country" that was a primary back way. If this was a roaming serial killer using the interstates, the location would have been very obscure from I70 or I71. I think it was an eastside local maybe connected at some point to Rosemont.

    I've never believed the story about the jailhouse confession. No one ever called him John. He was always Tony. I hung out with Tony for a brief time before his death. I knew Dennis and Harold as well. What happened to Tony could not have been done by any of our friends. We were just kids who thought they were bass-ass but really just smoked cigarettes and a little pot and cut school. We called ourselves hoods and really believed we were. I was a runaway at the time of Tony's death and remember seeing it on the news and calling my mom because I knew she'd be worried out of her mind. I still think of him and his poor family. His mother was always so welcoming when I visited their home. I always wondered about the creepy "religious" couple that lived on their street though. They preached and spoke of salvation while letting teenagers smoke and drink in their home. It was a bit weird.

    Jodi can you email the show? Nic@truecrimegarage.com I'd like to talk with you about Tony. I am gearing up to start looking into this again. I now believe there may be more information out there for further coverage. I am also trying to get Delaware to re-open the investigation. Cheers Nic

    I am the nephew of Tony and have grown up with many stories. When it comes to Dennis I have heard multiple stories of this guy that are very troubling. Stories that I do not think I was being lied to about. Please don’t buy to much into the guys crediability. No, I do not know Dennis but, the stories are to troubling to ignore.
