Here is a link to Tender Mercies Ministries - http://www.tendermerciesministries.org/index.html
Even though I live in the area, I am not familiar with Tender Mercies and had never heard of it prior to this case. I developed my own opinion after reading through all of the info on the website, but I will reserve sharing that opinion until I hear from others b/c I don't want to jump to any conclusions. I will say, I have a feeling this case involved money in some way, which isn't really a stretch since most do in one way or another...lol.

I'm guessing it was very apparent it was a homicide, as most people don't shoot themselves and then drive into a quarry. It could be a stabbing, shooting, or a brutal beating; but whoever did it didn't want her body or her car found. Maybe her body was in the trunk?
There was also the mention of her being troubled...and I'd certainly like to know what that is about. LE has a pretty good firm idea of who did it and the motive, imo.
This reminds of the Gail Palmgren case in TN (she also had ties to AL). Although this LE was "active" and not put off with big attorneys hired by her husband. JMO, IMO, etc.Timeline, map, etc for Rachael

I've heard of Tender Mercies Ministries, but not sure that is the same. I thought it was for recovering alcoholics. Maybe they've broadened their scope. Anyway, sometimes people who work in this type of service field find themselves in danger because some of the people they serve are unstable. I remember a homeless advocate who was murdered by a homeless man, for one.
It could be that someone she tried to help was looking for drug or alcohol money. Did she maybe talk to her son about signs of an attempted burglary, or report to him about some missing money?

Gentry in August 2012 pleaded not guilty and not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect to the single capital murder charge contained in the indictment dated June 2012. The indictment accuses him of killing Carrie Elaine Gentry between March 28 and 29, 2012...
The indictment alleges Daniel Gentry killed his grandmother by possibly stabbing her with a knife, striking her with a hammer, choking her or causing her asphyxiation with his hands or other object...
Bostick said the capital murder case means the potential punishment for Gentry if convicted includes the death penalty or life in prison without parole.
