    That’s pretty irresponsible to be boating without a depth finder. That’s just like driving on completely bald tires. It’s an accident waiting to happen.

    Depth finders are $40 so no I’m sorry anyone that’s not capable of driving a boat on a lake probably can’t function in the real world on their own. What are you going to hit in the middle of the night? Nothing! You’ve got the lake to yourself in early May.

    Now pulling a boat out of the water off a trailer or putting it in takes practice but I started driving boats at 11 years old.

    So if I could at 11 years old make the trip from the Dermonds to the dam at night I’m pretty sure an adult that lives on their own can as well.

    Open Records Act O.C.G.A. §50-18-70 et seq.
    Exempt: Investigations; certain real estate documents; attorney-client privilege documents; and names of handgun carriers. Electronic records open.


    SO that is why the public cannot help solve this case and even those in office havent solved this case

    My husband had a stroke in Dec 2015 right before christmas, my table stayed set with christmas decor until the next christmas when we still could not return home

    He was completely debilitated, couldnt walk, couldnt read, couldnt couldnt talk, couldnt use his right side

    It took 2 years to regain a lot and still has not regained it all

    We finally were able to move back into our 2 story home after 3 years then sold the Lake home.

    We lived at the lake that was one level, permanent for a few years until we finally sold it after we begun getting broken into

    We were living off and on at Lake Sinclair when this murder occurred and after the break ins I felt like a sitting duck with a handicapped husband, I carried a gun everywhere after that and have them to this day peppered all over the house

    Those murders terrified me, I was 7 miles from the Dermonds home though separated by the dam, the head could be anywhere, WHO KNEW< WHO KNOWS TODAY......NO ONE

    Vickie Stephens died not far from me and Im not sure to this day if it was simply an accidental drowning 2 days after SD was found

    I looked at everyone around me as a suspect

    I spoke with local cops who said the perps are gone and were from up north

    BUT TODAY I look at the community, the LOCC and the Real Estate connections to the Dermonds area and life

    I have vigorously studied statements made by the family , documents where I found a property lien of family to the Ds and more has been discovered

    Yet I cannot solve this case nor anyone because we do not have all the facts and GA is closed records in investigations.......

    Just thought I'd share

    ANyone else at these lakes in Eatonton GA please share your story!

    I have an old boat which is in great condition.. I don't need a new boat, nor a depth finder, because I don't use my boat enough. I'm sure I can't be the only person in the world like that? Doesn't make anyone irresponsible. (In any case, we are talking about the killers, who are definitely NOT responsible, regardless!) And anyone not capable of driving a boat on a lake, may only mean they aren't used to being around boats/driving a boat - this doesn't make them unable to function in life.

    "What are you going to hit in the middle of the night? Nothing! You’ve got the lake to yourself in early May." - Let's not forget about those magical trees and forests in the water, which remain there in all seasons, whether or not the lake has activity?

    My point was simply that I believe the killers most certainly *were* familiar with both boating *and* this particular lake, to have taken the risks they took - dead body, in the dark, in a lake full of trees to catch a motor up in. If one also has the lake to themselves at that time of year, then one might presume that boat would have stuck out to the residents along the lake? But yet, nothing was seen nor heard.

    Interesting that local LE told you the murderers were from up north. What leads them to this conclusion? They must mean NJ then? Which would presumably therefore mean they do think it was a disgruntled ex employee, or a 'mafia hit'? I wonder if their suspicions are the same now as they were back then?

    Well if the Dermonds were in witness protection the feds wouldn't let SS know that because of the rest of the family. Them being on scene tells me this was interstate right from the beginning. The last podcast by Levi SS stated that he suspected 2 people who he suspects had something to do with the murders but they won't talk to him or the local police nor take a polygraph. Maybe the local cops are right about the people being from up north. SS quickly dismissing possible suspects from other cases tells me he is sure he knows who did this

    Whether they were going by boat day or night, they may not be going full speed. They could have been trolling along so as not to hit anything and it might be quieter and not draw as much attention. Once your eyes get used to the darkness, you can start seeing things easier. Was the moon out that night?

    Right on, I agree.......

    and DG, this was in 2016 I think when I was told this...........we already saw that SS said in an article that even his Deputies or investigators didnt know to do some of the investigatie work SS has done himself.........I"ll post a link

    So I dont put TOO much into what they said, but my point is that its not solved and even they are all over the board

    Unless you are right Hockey and I do think more and more everyday that SS KNOWS, north is not far from GA either

    No foreign DNA was found in the D's home?

    What does that mean? Whose DNA did they find?

    Some comment by SS was made that they used so much Fingerprint powder they changed the color of the interior LOL, something to that affect

    AND NO FOREIGN fingerprints? NO other DNA???

    That's telling

    SO some speculate the octogenarian couple didnt have company nor entertain........well if I was 88 I dont guess I would either, life is getting slow at that point, be invited but they were both still very social in the community events they were involved in

    However, WHO WOULD they entertain? WHo do we know WOULD go to their home to visit??

    I think several of us do have it solved, SS just has to wait on that Phone call !! A statement I didnt earlier understand

    I 100% support this decision. Please don’t let this case take over and detract from your life in the real world.

    I think it was Brad in a recent article or one that was recently discovered from 2018, that his mother was an only child and so was RD, that has been verified thru Ancestry.com by me

    So there is no family that would gain or no other females that would lie to the LE except decendents, one daughter, 1 maybe 2 daughter in laws and a few grandaughters

    but I think DG found that SS actually did say DAUGHTER was more honest later

    I find that interesting

    Why would someone lie in the investigation?

    This however was NOT carried out by teens IMO

    You’re misquoting the sheriff. It wasn’t his deputies or investigators. It was investigators that he brought in from the outside to get fresh eyes on the case.

    So what was your answer to my previous question in regards to WHO MIGHT Be visiting the Dermonds since they were public hermits in your opinion?

    Thanks

    They were NOT very social. They were very private. Playing bridge once a week doesn’t make you social. SD didn’t leave the house other then bridge and church.

    RD ran the errand for the couple. It’s not speculation that they weren’t social. That comes from SS.
