    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Demetrius Jermain Elder was last seen at 1303 Dryden Avenue in Dallas, Texas on September 27, 1997. He had $30,000 from a settlement he received for growing up around lead contamination from a West Dallas smelter.
    Family believes he was robbed and murdered, probably by someone he knew and trusted for his money that he was keeping inside his house.
    A few years later his brother received a phone call saying, “You're going to end up dead just like your brother if you keep messing with my business." Police are sure foul play was involved.

    Not listed in NamUs at this time.

    I don't find a listing anywhere so far for his friend that went missing with him. Demerick Walker.

    2 articles archived both pay per view. The lastest with the date of 2001.

    Demetrius has been missing almost 13 years. Come home soon.
