    REMINDER: IMAGES must be accompanied by a link to the original source. Images posted without links will be removed.

    Also, for the posters who have complained about the excessive use of smilies in this thread (which many find to be rude and highly disrespectful to the deceased couple):

    YOUR IGNORE LIST AND YOU .

    We would hope that members exercise good judgment with regard to "smilies". Most do; a few don't.

    Nothing new, but latest update:

    "Sills is tired of all the theories and speculation. He has investigated the Dermonds' lives in depth and has determined that they worked hard, paid their taxes, went to church. There's no indication of any illegal activity or association with unsavory characters, he said. There's no indication that anything was taken from the home."

    "They were regulars at the Lake Oconee Community Church, missing services only when they went to visit their children in other states, Pastor David Key said. They were social and clearly had money but didn't flaunt it, he said.

    "They were just a nice, unassuming couple," Key said."

    Someone always brings up property values. Sad.

    The Dermonds' murders are back in MSM! Front page of MSN!

    Looks like same article posted above by osu, but still it's good to see the Dermonds' faces being put up again.

    I agree about the property values.

    But I have to agree with this attorney, that if I owned a weekend get-away place there on the lake and had kids, I would really be afraid to go back there until they get who did this. I don't think I could let my kids out of my sight or go to sleep at night.

    "Posted: 1:49 p.m. Friday, June 13, 2014"
    "Sheriff: Elderly couple’s murders still a mystery"

    "The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
    Six weeks after Russell and Shirley Dermond were killed, one of the more baffling murder mysteries in recent memory is no closer to being solved."

    Okay he knows Shirley's body was disposed of by boat, but he's not sure if the killers arrived by boat. To me, in my opinion, the killers is inside GW/RP. I think he is close and he/they controlled and concealed the crime scene as long as he possibly could.

    and in my opinion, the way I interpreted the article, he is not sure they left by boat, but they think a boat was used to dispose of Shirley's body.....
    so, could Shirley have been taken elsewhere, (not in a boat) and killed elsewhere, and then the perp(s) used a boat to dispose of her?
    IMOO.

    Wasn't there a poster here at WS a few weeks ago that mentioned "from unnamed sources" that the head had been neatly severed or something to that effect? TIA

    "neatly severed indicating the work of professionals."

    Okay my theory about it being law enforcement went out the window and now we are back to the medical profession. Oh boy! I need some antacid.

    Yes, absolutely. And the date of her death on her obituary is Tuesday May 6. They did not discover Shirley until over a week later. Mr. Dermond's body was discovered on Tuesday, May 6th. Hmmmmmm...

    Wow, that's strange that they listed her date of death as being the same day as Russell's. IIRC, Sills and the FBI referred to Shirley as being Missing/Abducted until the fishermen discovered her body in the lake. Did LE know all along that she had been murdered the same day as Russell?
