    AL - Chris Lirette, 27, Brewton, 19 August 1977

    I know this is an old case but it always gripped my attention. It seems there is to many clues for this not to be solved! Here is the link to the Doe Network listing:

    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/1841dmal.html

    I can't find much of anything on Google or on here. Has anyone come across any other information on this?

    He was last seen in Alabama. He was supposed to drive a company Truck back to Louisiana, but the truck was found wrecked in Texas, with another person in it?

    Who was this other person?

    Ok, I know this case is old, and he is not a pretty woman, or a child, but does he deserve any less justice? Just to find a body, or someone with information would be worth it.

    Exclamation Some Links I thought looked promising...

    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/114umtx.html- stuck in a freezer for a while, then dumped? this looks like a good sketch...

    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/261umal.html - Time frame is way off...but I don't think they knew decomp times like they do now.

    Speaking of, have you ever heard of the Body Farm at the University of Tennessee? It is where they have all these donated bodies and they let them decompose in the elements so they can study decomposition times and things of that nature. What a crazy class that must be. I bet they make sure to NEVER go to class with a hangover!

    Here's same info from the Charley Project:
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/l/lirette_noel.html

    I really can't find much with a basic search. I'm really curious as to the circumstances behind the person found in the vehicle. Why isn't there anymore info on that?

    a couple random guesses:

    someone robbed him of his truck in the parking lot..

    he got drunk with someone who took his truck (and he went off with someone else, who robbed &/or killed him...)

    drug deal or some other crime involvement (embezzlement, or..?) gone bad...

    he was in the car with the person, after the accident he might have wandered off to find help but then laid down to rest somewhere and died.... was the truck found in a remote area?

    Cool Weird

    Like I said, I can't find anything on this one. I have no idea why, after looking at hundreds of these that this one strikes a cord with me, but it does. It really seems that no one cares! (except you guys of course!)

    I wish I could find something, ANY thing more on this...but I am stuck...early!

    Hello--
    I'm new to the community...I was prowling the internet for Noel Lirette (actually Chris Lirette) and found this thread....
    Thanks for all the concern...I am married into his family, and wanted to let you know the family has finally had news after all these years. There is a memorial scheduled next month for Chris in his home state.
    I can't divulge details but the family has closure now and hopefully soon in the future I can give you more info.
    I just found it very special that so much concern is shown.
    I will say this....reb hit the nail on the head with one of the random guesses. And he wasn't drunk, no crime, no accident.........

    Thanks so much redsox. His children (now grown) have had an especially long haul with this and it is such a relief to stop wondering "what if". I will make sure and let you know when I can!!!

    So glad to hear that there is finally closure for this family. I was just reading this story and was going to post. My mother was from Emory, TX, where the truck was found and I was going to see if I could find anyone in extended family who knew anything. I'm glad that's not necessary. Tngirl1967-thank you so much for letting us know, and please keep us posted as you can. I'm sure that as sad as this is, it is a relief to his children. May they now find the peace that has evaded them for all of these years.

    It's good to hear that there's some news for the family - I'd hate to have to wait so long to hear about a loved one...how awful that must have been.

    Is there any other news that can be shared about this case?

    Hello all--
    Just wanted to share a bit more now that the memorial for Chris is over.
    I of course cannot give names but a man hospitalized now with a terminal illness confessed after much interrogation but wanted immunity in the state in which he committed the murders. The guy admitted he killed him and gave a location, which is being investigated currently. I'll update more when info is released.
    Again, bless you all for your kindness and concern.
