    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Demetrius Jermain Elder was last seen at 1303 Dryden Avenue in Dallas, Texas on September 27, 1997. He had $30,000 from a settlement he received for growing up around lead contamination from a West Dallas smelter.
    Family believes he was robbed and murdered, probably by someone he knew and trusted for his money that he was keeping inside his house.
    A few years later his brother received a phone call saying, “You're going to end up dead just like your brother if you keep messing with my business." Police are sure foul play was involved.

    I don't find a listing anywhere so far for his friend that went missing with him. Demerick Walker.

    2 articles archived both pay per view. The lastest with the date of 2001.

    Demetrius has been missing almost 13 years. Come home soon.
