    TN - Rev. Matthew Winkler dead in Selmer, family missing, 23 March 2006

    AP) Husband found dead, wife and daughters gone"

    NASHVILLE, Tenn.



    The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation issued a statewide Amber Alert Thursday morning after a West Tennessee pastor was found murdered and his family missing.

    The missing persons were Breanna Winkler, age 1; Mary Alice Winkler, 6, who is 3 feet tall and weighs about 40 pounds; Patricia Winkler, 8, who is 4 feet tall and weights about 60 pounds. All are white females. The two older girls have dark brown hair.

    They were possibly with their mother, Mary Winkler, who is 32, 5-foot-3, and weighs about 120 pounds.

    They were believed to be traveling in a gray 2006 Toyota Sienna van bearing Tennessee license plates NDX-288.

    They are missing from Selmer in McNairy County, where the husband and father, Matthew Winkler, was found dead in a bedroom of the parsonage of a Church of Christ, where he was the minister.

    When he didn't appear for a worship service Wednesday night, members of the church went to the parsonage and found him dead, police said.

    TBI spokeswoman Jennifer Johnson said there were no signs of forced entry at the parsonage.

    Mary Winkler and her children were last seen late Tuesday afternoon.

    Selmer is about 80 miles east of Memphis.

    Authorities were asking anyone who saw the van or who had other information tocall 1-800-TBI-FIND.

    This could very well be what has happened. But someone could have killed him and took the wife and children. Sometimes preachers open their homes to people traveling through who call on them for help. If she did it, the kids are probably in less danger but it should be easier to find her if this is the case. She will have to turn to someone.

    I pray that if this is the case she doesn't decide to kill herself and the children.

    I'm so tired of children being abducted daily. I pray they find these children safe and sound.

    Since I've not been on this board long, it makes me wonder how you all keep your spirits up (this may be posted elsewhere - if so, I'll search it out if you tell me where) because the victories (finding them safe and sound) sure don't seem to outweigh the minuses (bodies found - or worse, never found, and so forth). Thanks.

    I may be wrong, but it doesn't sound like a pervert. It sounds like the mother may have killed the father and taken off with the kids. Selmer is a small town, 120 miles from Memphis, and I haven't heard of any locals missing.

    I'm wondering if there is a "boyfriend" or a wannabe boyfriend who killed the father and kidnapped the mom and children.


    I'm not crazy, my reality is just different than yours.

    Trino, I'm with you. I think the implication from LE is that the mother/wife killed the husband/father and made off with the children.

    Selmer, TN is a tiny little place. You blink while driving through on Highway 45, and you'll miss it. I ate dinner at a little barbeque place called Pappy Johns' there 3 weeks ago with MrPigeon and our sons as we were making our way down to Detroit, AL via Tupelo, MS.
