Some people associated the new movie The Strangers on the real life murder story of the Hoyt family in 2005. Some people had done research on the Hoyt family murders. Get ready for this…
It does not exist.
There is a Sheriff Hoyt and he is a character in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. He was played by R. Lee Ermy.
The reel Sheriff Hoyt has no connection with the Hoyt family murders 2005.
Look for the Keddie murders in this site. There is a post on it.
Updated Mon. June 2 2008.
It seems that James Hoyt and Kristen McKay existed but their records have been deleted away from the internet. The Hoyt family did not want publicity into the murders so they paid for a service called a scrub. The scrub scrubbed away and cleaned up the internet references to James Hoyt and the Hoyt murders. Kristen McKay’s name and references were also removed. The Hoyt family was approached for their rights to the story but they refused to sell out and went the other way.
The Hoyt family’s vacation home at 1801 Clark Road was demolished and totally flattened. The site is bare and is made into an empty space and part of a park.
There is a Clark Road in Clarksville, Arkansas. But …
An internet search turned up many roads in USA with that address. There are more than 10 maps.
So far, there are clues that the real Hoyt and McKay families lived on the upper north east coast of USA.
All traces of the Hoyt murders were removed. It was as if the murders on Feb. 11, 2005 never happened.
The present search results on James Hoyt and Kristen McKay referred to the new data on the movie, The Strangers. There is no data on the deceased victims.
The movie was inspired by some incidents but it did not depict real murders. “The Strangers” was linked to the Manson murders, the Keddie Murders, the Hoyt family murders but the scriptwriter did not use an actual single story to write “The Strangers.”
The emphasis is that “The Strangers” is not based on a single true story.
Updated on March 15 2009:
Oswego County Sheriff’s Office (of NY) has a reference to a “James Hoyt” in an archive found by a search. However, the cached page has been removed. (scrubbed) The murder probably happened in that county as the local officials are handling it. The Hoyt family lives near NY.

If you read the comments carefully, you will come across an entry by someone who claimed to be the mother/ relative of James Hoyt. She wrote the movie was bad and did not portray the events correctly. She did not reveal other facts. She seemed to be genuine. While she refused to reveal details, she asked for prayers that investigators may find the killers.

The Hoyt story probably happened on the north-east coast of US. The families are likely to be living in their same hometowns. While the cabin where the murder took place may be in Oswego County, the Hoyt family lived in another town.
The cabin was in the woods, at a holiday, scenic location. It was a holiday home for vacationing family members. Rumors said the Hoyt family possessed old money and power from an established family business. They are rich and well connected. James Hoyt has at least one or more cousins who, respecting the wishes of the relatives, confirmed the incident but hasn’t diverged details on it.
James Hoyt, RIP.
