    Hey Everyone,

    Websleuths Presents Into the Case Podcast premiers tomorrow night.

    This is very exciting. Our case for season 1 is the murder of Russell and Shirley Dermond.

    What makes this exciting is this is the first podcast where members of Websleuths will be actively involved in helping Levi and me shake loose, hopefully, some clues in this very strange.

    Levi and I will be in Eatonton for the first few days of February to ask people some questions and talk to the locals.

    Check out the podcast thread RIGHT HERE

    I don’t think the perps used a pontoon boat, as they are too big and slow. According to tennispro, the cove behind the Dermonds is quite small and narrow. Someone knew where they were going, I don’t think it was a random intruder.

    IMHO

    This person that lived here was gone per my understanding. Dancin I think you might have solved the reason both bodies weren’t taken. No way they could fit! No way!

    Going back in that cove at night would be scary. I’m not afraid of much but that would be scary. I would or will do it but I might get to someone ride with me.

    The house across the cove might be the reason they didn’t go back. It would be extremely easy to tell at night if someone was home or not. It’s very open with tons of natural light.

    No dragging of my jet ski but when I checked the depth it was more shallow back there than anticipated.

  11. TJTennispro why do you think the end of August this will be solved? If I asked you before I don't remember your reply and yes i'm too lazy to look back on the comments lol.

  12. and I've asked before but never got an answer. Is there a new forensic accountant taking a look at the Dermonds finances or is this just wishful thinking?

    I’m actually not 100% sure which house Mills owns. I was under the impression it was the dock down past the Dermond’s in the cove but it could be the one closer to the lake. I was told nobody was at either house on the Dermond’s side but that’s not uncommon as most people don’t live at their lake house. Some obviously do but when I’m not at my lake house I’m not out of town.

    If someone owns a lake house and regular house I assume when they say out of town they’re somewhere other than one of the two houses they own. Semantics at that point.

    Yes he was DD he helped convict Tex McIveir he was asked to go over it. Name is in the AJC.

    If I ask him questions he has to be vague.

    That was just a guess based on a known forensic accountant being asked to look into it and chatter around the community getting quite. It was just a hunch.

    Maples owns the house next to the dermond's but there is an empty lot between them and that's the Rockstar lol...who was that?
    Maples was in Asia, may have had lawn maintenance at her place and possibly a maid coming and going
    I understand and the only other houses would be those across from the Cove that you posted pictures of ....because there's no other houses around the dermonds cul-de-sac

    The Cove actually doesn't look that bad how far deep in is this picture?

    I think I could get my pontoon in there some of them are long and some of them are not so they can do lots of things people don't realizeand people ski behind them and they have all sized motors and you can back them so you don't have to turn around

    However I'd like to see a picture coming into the Cove with both sides of the shoreline showing

    THis one.......
    Google Maps

    And was that hidden old dock deeper in the cove, the only other dock?

    Looked like they could get past teh Dermonds dock though, did YOU?

    You know they could have used the Maples dock if they knew she was out of town

    WHO would know that?

    Also, a small flat bottom boat would be hell going 5 miles down the river, back and forth, with a body in it

    I dont know what they used but I can still see a pontoon being used, easier to hide the body

    but if you want to look like a real night fisherman, I'd say a fishing boat of any style, those you cant hide a body behind as easily.....like the wall on the deck of the pontoon though

    If the cove is so tight as you say, I guess a pontoon would be way more conspicuous, if taken in there

    Unless they used the neighbors boat dock and walked over

    Maybe that was the "man on the lawn"???
