    Not sure how far we can take this within TOS -- but I am finding that the Mr. Dermond who was just murdered is linked in some searches to a person with the name MD, same as the deceased in your link.

    ETA: Some info on the perp in that case:
    (I've removed what I had here earlier and replacing it with this, as this is more official.)
    (REMOVED INOPERABLE LINK TO SEARCH RESULT)


    <sigh> well it won't let me link the search results, but you can go here and search for that offender name:

    Still in prison.

    I also found the person named MD as a relative of Russell and Shirley Dermond. From my research it looks like he is still alive (around 60 years old) and living in the Southwest US.

    One of the articles posted earlier today said that Mr & Mrs Dermond have three children that all live out of state.

    So likely that little detour we just did was a wild goose chase -- if so, sorry folks!

    One thought, though -- MD who was killed in incident linked could be a grandson...?

    But maybe no relation at all...

    Something seems weird here with what we were looking at, but I don't think I can take it any further under TOS right now. I may be wrong, anyhow.

    I saw that she played Bridge, and her phone number was out there for anyone to see, that's just dangerous

    Yeah i am reminded about the macon LG and SM case, and he wanted people to think she just "disappeared"

    I wondered also if someone had been paid to rid of them for "reasons"

    this one is just as senseless, all are horrific, but same as LG, all her personal effects were there too, like she just "disappeared"

    Now this is weird.

    I used the Georgia Offender Search (official GDOC) to search one of the pertinent names we've been discussing.

    Brings up info on a guy described as white, blue eyes -- brings up a mugshot of a black guy.

    I'll say no more... (Was an old record, anyhow...)

    This was some kind of personal attack, both the murder and missing person crime imoo.
    No way did the wife behead her husband. Elderly women usually are not that strong....usually.
    Im thinking the husband was being robbed by someone the couple knew. Wife came home, the robber demanded money, the couple couldnt access any at that time so the husband was violently murdered. The wife was kidnapped to get the money .
    All my rambling of course.
    such a horrible crime. they lived a long life.............then this. :(

    It wasn't like they were trying to disguise who he was, if they planned to leave him in his own home. I wonder if someone was trying to totally disguise him and take him out of there. BUT got interrupted. My parents are this age and it's horrifying.

    http://www.firstcoastnews.com/story/news/crime/2014/05/07/elderly-man-killed-wife-missing/8797059/

    PUTNAM COUNTY, Ga. – Investigators are searching for answers after an 88-year-old man was murdered and his 87-year-old wife is missing from their Lake Oconee home.

    According to Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills, friends found the body of Russell Dermond in the garage of their home in the Great Waters Community. According to sources, Dermond had been beheaded.

    Shirley Dermond was not at the home and authorities believe she may have been abducted.

    Authorities believe the crimes occurred sometime between Friday and Sunday.

    A son of the couple, Keith Dermond, asked anyone with information on the crimes to come forward.

    "I would ask anybody that knows anything to please help us find our mother," Keith Dermond said.

    Bradley Dermond, the couple's son, described his parents Wednesday morning to WMAZ as "salt of the Earth."
