Oh, wow, I didn't think anyone even knew about this. I think about her all the time. I believe she was a victim of Derrick Todd Lee. There was some blood on a knife that was discovered at Geralyn De Soto's trial that was unexplained DNA. I believe he accosted and murdered and disposed of Mrs. Fowler in the Achafalaya Basin as he did with other victims.The swamps will never give it up.She had a remarkable resemblance to Mrs. Marino the mother of Pam Kinamore.Mrs. Marino was very vocal in support of her murdered daughter as well as Mrs. Pace, the mother of Murray Pace. He could have seen this as a threat and went after her. She was older but beautiful and her son has been an unrelenting spokesperson for his mom. Prayers for some end to this for her family!

She was kidnapped Christmas Eve 2002, on her way to the Texas prison where her husband, former elections commissioner Jerry Fowler, was serving a 5-year term for fraud. Her body was never found; a judge declared her dead in may 2004.
"Everyone knows where I've been for the last few years," Fowler told the hundreds of people, including his wife's 90-year-old mother, in Holy Ghost Catholic Church. He left the pulpit in tears after saying he and his wife had both loved country music and quoting a song by George Strait: "It's been a long hard ride. See you on the other side." Her son, John Anthony Pritchett, read the well-known poem beginning, "Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there, I shall not sleep." He also left the pulpit in tears.
Pritchett said he got much of his fighting spirit from his mother, and will fight through his grief and anger at the kidnapping and apparent murder.

Did LE ever do a DNA test on that knife and see if it matched Mari Ann's DNA?
I wonder if LE still has the knife. You would think they would if they are any good at all. Has anyone ever suggested that LE have that knife typed?

How sad. I always thought a person had to be missing for 7 years before they could be declared dead. Law must have changed which is good.

Did anyone ever think that this murder had anything to do with politics as her husband was involved in them and he stole and went to prison? Maybe someone gettng back at him through someone he loved.

Oh my goodness, I had no idea this was here. I was checking to see if any new information had been discovered, did a Google search, and the link brought me right back to WS where I've been all day!

I think the reason she was declared dead so soon was because they had evidence that she was kidnapped, her belongings were scattered, never heard from again, and the serial killer was active during that time.

Here's something I found from early in the case, posted by the Southeast Missourian:

I remember this case vividly because it was on Christmas Eve, her husband was an ex-state official, and the serial killer was in the news, too. Yes, Mrs. Fowler did resemble a slain girl's mother who was constantly on the TV news. It was said the serial killer may have mistaken her for the activist mom.

Boxes of evidence at the West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office revealed never before seen photos of South Louisiana Serial Killer Derrick Todd Lee. From the moment Fowler disappeared, the South Louisiana Serial Killer task force began investigating, but they weren't able to determine whether Lee had something to do with it.
