Susan and Jerry Osborne, Evan ChartrandMelissa Canfield

Susan Osborne and her 14-year-old son, Evan Chartrand have been missing from Wetumpka, Alabama since May 2017. While there are many speculations of what may have taken place, there still have not been any arrests in the case. They were reported missing initially by Susan’s mother because it was completely unusual for her daughter to just “fall off the map”.

Susan and Evan went missing after there was the discovery of some emails that revealed that her husband Jerry Osborne may have been leading a double life. The emails that Susan found were between her husband and other men. One of the emails contained a link to her husband’s profile on Boyscort.com. When law enforcement arrived at the residence of Susan and Evan, they observed Susan’s car parked in the driveway, and that her husband, Jerry Osborne was clearing out the house while deep cleaning the inside of the residence. Some neighbors stated that they even observed Jerry burning items from the home in the backyard. When law enforcement began to question Jerry, his story did not add up. Jerry was deep cleaning again when they returned the next day with a search warrant to search the residence. There was also a very elaborate security system within the home and Susan’s mother thought their abduction may be caught on camera. When law enforcement asked about the camera system Jerry stated that he had gone through and replaced all the cameras.

Susan’s best friend Hollie felt that Susan had a hard time leaving Jeff for two reasons: his controlling nature and a sense that he was “all she had”. Hollie also has mentioned that there were several times where he had control of her phone and was very controlling about where she went, as he often took her there himself whenever her and Hollie would meet up. Currently there are blood tests being completed on blood that was found in several locations in the home with luminol. Those results are still pending at this time, but law enforcement feels that it would help to make a huge break in the case in the near future. If you have any information that could help this case, contact Elmore County Secret Witness Line at 334-567-5227.

The Public Restroom Murderer

Sherrice Iverson and Jeremy StrohmeyerIverson and Strohmeyer Family. Sherrice Iverson (7) and her older brother Harold (14) went to Primm Valley Resort Casino with their father Leroy Iverson in Primm, Nevada. Their father did not have money for a room and so he decided to just spend a few hours in the casino. Leroy sent his children to go and occupy themselves on the balcony of the casino. He had seen it done in the past and assumed that it would be okay for him as a parent to do the same. Leroy then told Harold that he would be in charge of watching his sister Sherrice while he was away. Well, Harold didn’t keep a close eye on his sister and eventually, the siblings went their separate ways. Sherrice was running around unmonitored all throughout the casino. At about 4 am in the morning a teen by the name of Jeremy Strohmeyer (19) was seen following and playing with Sherrice. He was then seen following her into the bathroom. Inside the bathroom, Jeremy continued to play with Sherrice until he finally forced Sherrice into one of the bathroom stalls. He was seen at this point by his friend David Cash (17). Cash immediately came out of the bathroom and Jeremy was seen by Cash coming out of the bathroom 20 minutes later. Jeremy then informed his friend David that he had molested Sherrice and then strangled her to keep her quiet. Jeremy stated that as he was leaving, he noticed that Sherrice was still alive and twisted her neck making a “loud pop” to crack it, then laid her head on the toilet. He was caught 3 days later after he was identified from security footage of his attack. He was charged with abducting, sexually assaulting, and killing Sherrice. He was facing the death sentence. He ended up pleading guilty to first-degree abduction, and a sexual attack on a minor with harm. He was sentenced to life in jail without a choice of parole. Due to the fact that the family could not get Cash charged as well, because of his lack of reporting the incident, they created and got the Sherrice Iverson bill passed. This bill requires that a person with reasonable suspicion that a minor is being sexually attacked must report the crime to the police or face criminal action.

Stacy’s autopsy determined that she died from possibly more than two blows to the head. It was also noted that she was found partially dressed as well.
