Fred and Louise are suspected to have gone missing either the very late hours of 15 DEC 1980 or the very early hours of 16 DEC 1980. Their bodies were discovered at a Toledo landfill (dump) on 19 DEC 1980.
Just a week after they married and three days after they turned up missing in Flint, the Tuckers were discovered in the Toledo dump off a dead end street, asphyxiated with plastic dry cleaning bags from their own home.
The Tuckers' bodies were found under cardboard boxes in brush off Creekside, dumped before snow blanketed the area. They were gagged, their hands and feet were bound, and pillowcases and plastic bags were over their heads.A check of the Tuckers' Flint home found forced entry to the back door and Mr. Tucker's car missing.
Sergeant Hosmer said there was evidence of a struggle at the home. A bed sheet and two pillowcases were missing from the bed. Strips of binding cord were found and things were overturned in the kitchen area. But nothing - not even Mr. Tucker's wallet - was taken.
I did a quick search of the news archives and didn't find anything but I didn't dig around. Just entered search term and nothing came up in one try. I'll let other's dig for more info.

May their families have the answers and justice they seek soon.

How sad, they had only been married a week And I see that evidence was lost? Ugh!
On another note, I notice the writer of this article is Ron Fonger. I believe that he also did an article or two on Coral Pearl Hall (who also has a thread here at WS) I'm glad he seems to really try to revive interest in these cold cases.
