    IN -Terry and Darleen Anderson Murder, Mungo, 22 Oct 2005 - #1

    The Andersons were very brutally murdered in their Mongo, IN, home in October of 2005. There is now a website set up by Terry's daughter in hopes of finding who murdered them. This case has bugged me (and a lot of us) for awhile, so any ideas would be welcomed.

    Here is the site, which includes a link to a story on the murder:

    http://terryanddarleen.com/index.php



    Deuteronomy 18:10-12 (KJV)

    10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord. (KJV)

    digging

    I had to dig really hard to find any info at all about this murder case.
    And even now all I know is the bare bones of the case.
    They were beaten to death in separate locations on their property and found separately and guns and weapons (some of which were possibly more valuable than average guns and weapons would be) were stolen from the property.

    He (terry) was an avid fisherman and outdoors type from what I could read and he was mentioned and his picture (a copy of the one shown on the family website) was shown on the website of at least one pro fisherman.

    It was not mentioned in the news articles but I wonder if their bank cards were stolen and used after the crime? Someone obviously believed he had a worthwhile stash of something hidden on his property and was willing to beat both him and his wife to get the information. He was evidently a colorful character, according to his family website, and I wonder if there were any local legends about him having a stash of money or something else circulating among the local teens?

    I have so little to go on here so pardon me if I step out and speculate (sort of thinking out loud.) No sign of forced entry could mean anything from he was surprised at the door to meaning he knew his attackers. Remembering a past case where someone was attacked in his own home by someone looking for a stash of money I remember that person knew his attacker because he had been a previous client of the victem. I wonder if there was some small relationship between the victems and the perps in this case. I wonder if they either knew them in some slight way (Maybe he had met them once while fishing or maybe the perps had done some work for him) or if the perps were relatives of someone that had known Terry and his wife. I don't think the relationship was a close one but just enough that he might have let them in his home if they showed up at the door (or maybe he didnt lock the door and they just walked in - who knows.)

    The update I read said the police had several persons of interest in mind.

    fishing gear touched or left alone?

    I don't remember if it was listed or not but I wonder also if any of his fishing gear was missing or had been searched through?

    Yeah, there isn't much online about it, but I am hoping the website will provide more in coming weeks.

    I agree that the victims knew the murderer(s). They had to.

    Thanks for your help!

    One thing that jumps out at me is that they were both beaten to death but were not found in the same place. It makes me think they were probably beaten to death in different places and that, in turn, makes me think this was a very deliberate interrogation as if someone was expecting and looking for a certain bit of info about where to find something and did not want the two victems to know what each other had said when giving answers.

    But, of course, until more info is released that too is only speculation.

    I'm corresponding with the daughter of the victims. She feels strongly it is someone very close to her parents. She also said no family members seem supportive of her current efforts.

    Anyone have any questions you'd like me to ask her?

    Unfortunately to me, and MOO, your second two sentences seem to speak volumes about the situation. I wish her luck but getting anyone to talk would seemingly be a real undertaking.

    please read this closely

    Here is a direct quote from one of their daughter's e-mails to me:

    In two weeks will be the one year anniversary of their horrific murder and each and every moment I breathe - I think of my dad and Darleen. I would be more than grateful to receive anything from ANYONE who would be willing to help me and my husband. I have not been getting any help from my dad's siblings or Darleen's brothers - not even a phone call (can't imagine why) saying that they are excited about all the efforts I have placed with the web-site, billboard and up-teen emails I have sent out these past 12months... Send me anything and everything you feel is worth it - and then some that you might not think - it still might work. I know in my heart that someone very very close to my dad and Darleen did this crime - I FEEL IT... I intend to NEVER stop trying to find out until they put me in the ground...

    I guess I posted my own questions earlier - lol.

    Is there any evidence or info that L.E. is specifically looking for, that the many internet readers can be on the lookout to spot? (Such as certain guns or other gear showing up on Ebay or identification of any other evidence not currently explained?) She might want to confer with L.E. and make sure she does not release any info that they feel would jeopardize their investigation. Advise to keep excellent relations with L.E. even when it seems very hard to do so.

    Other than that please let her know to have faith and know that others of us send our prayers and good wishes in support.

    I feel very badly that the daughter's family is not supporting her in her efforts and she is having to face this alone.

    Surely LE has verified all alibis for all family members and friends by now....Right?

    She has joined WS and will be taking part in this thread, she tells me.

    Boy, she has told me some things that make it clear to me who is PROBABLY responsible, and it's a sad thought, for sure. But I will let her tell that and you can decide.

    No fishing gear was taken. Several guns- one my dad had always by him with a light on it..a cross bow - but the arrows were left behind, some collector coins that were hanging around in the barn on the table in a glass ashtray. Also some cash - like 6-10K. Wallet was open and still there.. empty of money. Dad was about to purchase/exchange his 3yr old boat for a new boat for his guide service. Had appointment that sat - told my husband the Tues before.. We were scheduled to go deer hunting open season - November 2005.. Dad said he would have his new boat by then and Eric and him would 'get it wet'. No money found. The safe was locked - no big money when they opened it. House was not overly trashed. Over kill is all I can tell everyone. Crushed them so I could only have closed caskets. I don't think Dad and Darleen felt a threat to the visitor's they had than night. I feel it was more than one person. Better more than one - now it's not a secret cuz two people know.

    Thanks for those kinds thoughts. I am very sad that I am not getting any support. I do have my husband who hurts as I do. My Pastor brother is a great help spiritually. He's my preacher boy and gives me the words sometimes I need to get me thru another moment. My mother is also the best medicine. She loved dad - even after all the BS and years of pain in the past. She is a huge supporter! Bless my mom. I love her so much. LE is well aware of every move we have made and what personal issues we have been given. I think it builds a case and shows personallity. LE has ideas. It's a huge buzz in DA's office. I think that majority of other family feels either scared of the truth or would rather ignore. It's only speculation tho. I can't account for anyone's actions on why they do or not do things. But - It's not in my nature to ignore.

    FYI - Rosco is the daughter of the victims. Thanks for joining us, Rosco.

    I just read your latest e-mail. There is little doubt in my mind they knew the victims very well. Maybe you can relay some of that same info on here and let others chime in. Or I can C and P with your permission.

    It should also be noted that it was another daughter, I'll call her "A", who found the bodies and called the police. She is continuing to live in that same house and had rented part of it out to someone within 3 weeks of the murders. She was quoted at the time of the murders in a local newspaper that she would make her parents dreams her dreams, such as a full wrap around porch, tear down the barn, new siding, new curtains, new furniture, electrical work, and now a security system, all in memory of them. (I still have the newspaper article.)
