Terry Sutter Cold Case There are some jurisdictional issues with this case. He was found on a beach in Frankfort, which is in Benzie County Michigan. (we aren't too far from Traverse City) 15 year old Terry Sutter was supposed to go to the movies in town with friends, then spend the night at his grandmother's house. He never arrived. When his mother called the grandmother's house in the morning, she learned that he never arrived. Around noon on 9/2/73 a doctor at his vacation cottage looked out and spotted a body on the beach. He called the authorities who determined that he was dead and notified his family. It was assumed that Terry had drown, but his lungs were not full of water, they were full of SAND. Over the years Terry's headstone was vandalized, flowers torn away from his grave. His burial place is unmarked, the only way to leave his grave undisturbed. This case reminds me a great deal of the murder of Erik Cross about a decade later also in west Michigan. I don't think they are related, but the circumstances look similar.
