As a little girl growing up in Ball Play, Kelly McBurnette-Andronicos used to play with friends in Arm and Leg Creek, not far from her home on Young’s Chapel Road.

That’s where, in June 1959, police found the arm of one of two men killed and dismembered by Rabbittown resident Viola Hyatt, who came to be known as "The Torso Slayer."
