    "We now, unfortunately, know that Shirley Dermond was murdered," Sills said. Sills declined to discuss the condition of the body other than to say, "the head was not removed or anything like that.

    "We haven't even had a funeral for Russell because their kids wanted to wait. Now that we know about Shirley, we will start planning the funeral services for both.

    REMINDER: IMAGES must be accompanied by a link to the original source. Images posted without links will be removed.

    Also, for the posters who have complained about the excessive use of smilies in this thread (which many find to be rude and highly disrespectful to the deceased couple):

    YOUR IGNORE LIST AND YOU .

    We would hope that members exercise good judgment with regard to "smilies". Most do; a few don't.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Sorry to quote myself, but this is all I've got for now.

    I wish we knew why the killer took Mrs. Dermond's body and "placed' it in the lake. If Sheriff Sills can find out the answer to that, I think he'll have the killer(s). Why would the killer(s) not just leave Mrs. Dermond's body with Mr. Dermond's? The only reason I can think of is a failed extortion/ransom attempt.

    Then there's the possible motive of who would benefit if Mrs. Dermond was not found.

    Could the killer have not wanted anyone to know that he/they beat Mrs. Dermond to death, so they hid her body? Not that he/they felt guilty, because no way do I think he/they did. But maybe he/they didn't want everyone to know how vicious her murder was?

    What other reasons could there be for hiding Mrs. Dermond's body? I hope we hear from Sheriff Sills soon!

    Seems that if the neighbor could distinguish whether the person she witnessed was a man or a woman. There should be a description of his dress, race, height, weight, etc., to release to the public; a very valuable investigative resource..jmo

    Or, it was carefully planned out and the killer thought he would create an even greater diversion from solving the crime by having Mrs. D's body never found by placing it where he did and having SS and posse searching for her and a head for years. Only he didn't expect her to surface.

    IMO, this was well thought out. It would be easier to solve if it was not. And I completely discount what we can not talk about (UNFAM, not UNGAT) being a factor, so who benefits financially from her not being found is not an issue as I see it. But I do not discount someone benefitting financially from RD not being around. But it would not be an heir that just wanted to accelerate what otherwise would come naturally in time.
