    I'm sorry .
    She can be laid to rest and a proper burial but all that lost and wasted time.....it's just a shame.

    My heart breaks for your family and Sherry's kids, but I am also so happy that you finally have answers and can bring Sherry home. I will never drive through Warriors Mark again without thinking of your sister. (((hugs)))

    Thoughts are with Shelly and her family. I am glad they are finally able to bring her home and have some closure. I feel for Sherry's children, now knowing that their own grandfather killed their mother.

    heartbreaking i am so sorry there wasn't a "happy ending" to sherry's story but your brother was very right shelly, your continued vigilance is the reason she is home today. if you, your brother and father had accepted that she ran off with a boyfriend to maine all those years ago, it would have ended there. but you kept the pressure on, especially in recent years.

    next stop justice for sherry!

    Bittersweet. I'm sure Shelly and her family expected this outcome all along, but it's still hard to know the truth.

    Sherry can be laid to rest properly, and hopefully we will all be around to see justice served for her.

    RIP now Sherry. This case is so sad. Dropped off a block from work.. we all know that one.

    So sorry for your loss Shelly.. so sorry for Sherry's kids loss of their mother, as well as the loss of their mothers family. I'm praying that you can overcome all of this and be a family again. ((hugs)) Beautiful lady, you are an inspiration and I pray for you to have peace and closure. I also hope you give yourself a pat on the back. Without you, I doubt she would have ever been found.

    We won't forget Sherry.

    I believe forever Sherry Leighty will be the poster case for not giving up and for making LE accountable to families. While it's not going to replace the loss, it will help other families in the future. That is a small blessing in this otherwise very depressing story. Sherry will help others , I have no doubt !

    I'm so glad Sherry can finally come home and be properly laid to rest.

    Shelly - I am praying for you and your family. What a long nightmare for all of you. You are an amazing woman and you should be so proud of yourself for never giving up on Sherry. She is smiling down on you <3

    I guess I am a cynic, it's hard to believe he never reported her missing. Never called her family. I'm not saying he had anything to do with it but I'm thinking he knew all along.

    Hmm. Well, even if the death was accidental (which I doubt) concealing her body and lying to her family, and the distress that resulted from that were all deliberate. Does PA have any charges that could cover that? In the UK, Mark Bridger was charged with perverting the course of justice, as well as the murder of April Jones, and that also carries a maximum life sentence.

    I'm relieved for Shelly and her family that Sherry has been found but it's terrible that it took so long. It would be nice if having screwed up the initial investigation, LE/DA made sure that the FiL gets the book thrown at him.
    Justice for Jennifer


    Rest in peace Danielle and Tammy

    Is her case technically a cold case? I mean, they found her and are charging the man involved.

    Sounds like a solved case to me

    She has been featured by request.

    May Sherry rest in peace and justice be served in the courts.

    Thank you for featuring Sherry, Kimster!! <3

    Just one small note though, the front page says Altoona, TX. It should be Altoona, PA

    It's unbelieveable to me that just, what -- a month ago?? This case was not only cold, but the police wouldn't even look into it from the day it was reported over a decade ago!!

    Funny how things fall into place. I have no idea what made the ex-husband "turn in" his dad after all this time, but it can't be a coincidence that it happened after Shelly started making waves and getting somewhere. He probably figured she was going to find out what happened, and soon. He might as well save his tail in the process!

    Well, case solved but I can't help that feel that the killers wife and son must have known. I hope that the police investigated thoroughly all those that may have been involved. Would love to know who told the son his mother was buried on the farm. And who else knew of this claim.

    I just caught the end of the radio show and came to this thread. All I can is this:

    Shelly, I am in awe of you and what you have accomplished for your sister. You never gave up and kept trying and your persistence has paid off. You are the true epitome of what a great sister really is. You have brought your family the answers they needed and your sister can finally rest in peace in a place of honor. Your sister's children will know that their mom abandoned them.

    You have done what all of at WS would like to do which is to get a case solved, to bring a criminal to justice, to find the answers that grieving families need.

    Truly i am in awe of you and what you have done. I know that this must have been extremely emotional for you and hard to deal with and I pray that you can find peace and happiness in knowing that you have worked a miracle. Bless you and your family as you mourn the loss of your beloved sister. I know that she is looking down on you with a smile as bright as the sunshine. With much admiration, Swampmama

    Rest In Peace Sherry.

    Shelly, I am so thankful that you and your family now have answers about your sister, now she can be laid to rest as she deserves to and all of y'all including her children can have some sort of closure. I wish you had never had to go through any of this and your sister were here to watch her kids grow up, but unfortunately her life was ended way to young.
