    Details of Disappearance

    Jerry was last seen at his home in Newellton, Louisiana on November 13, 1997. He has never been heard from again. In 1999, his wife, Mary Ann Hendry, was charged with his murder. Mary had been a suspect in her husband's disappearance from the onset of the investigation. She was arrested after she confessed. Mary stated she beat Jerry to death with a wooden cutting board, then wrapped his body in a rug, burned it and buried it in the yard near the driveway. The outcome of the criminal case is unknown, however, and Jerry has never been located.
