I think the answers are here right in front of our faces. I think someone right here knows what happened.

I agree I also think it was someone from here. I knew both them very well and they wouldn't open the door for someone they didn't know.
agree

I agree also. Didnt it happen at night? I just dont see her opening the door for someone they didnt know especially at night when it was just her and her daughter there, and so far out in the country too. It really is a scary thought to think about all of that...even more if it was someone from here that did it.

Yeah this is sorta related but different I heard a while back that they were supposed to reopen the Michelle Lawless case here in Scott County. Has anyone heard anything about this? I think they should.

at first i thought the same thing, but, what throws me is that the same man made a stop in dyersburg, i think that we are looking for a serial killer. same bullets recovered from both scenes. why would someone from the area go to dyersburg? that lady could have very well been murdered as well.
not saying that it isn't possible that it was someone from the area, anything is possible.
i didn't know them (the victims) but, it breaks my heart to think of what they had to endur. i hope whoever is responsible for murdering them is caught and brought to justice and the same goes for michelle lawless and teresa butler.
my prayers go out to all the families of these people.

mrs schere had a brother that lived in dyersburg at the time that was rumored to have serious drug issues back then. thats how i understood the connection????? rumors, you know how that goes???? yes i think about this case often and even cry for them. i pray for tony and the rest of the family and sure hope they someday get the closure they so deserve.

How long was it after the Dyersburg shooting that the bullet from there was found out about? I have heard speculation that that bullet may have originated in the home here and then gone back to Dyersburg, set the scene there, and then sought medical care. Is that possible? Could more than one person have been involved in this?

I'm sure law enforcement knows more than we do. They have to keep some things back.

I agree... Some of the facts of the case combined with the relocation of a certain member of the community right after it happened was really fishy to me.

i wonder why the brother was not checked out? especially if he had a history of drug abuse and lived in dyersburg at the time? has he moved around alot since then?

no one said her brother did anything - just that there may have been a connection to dyersburg because her brother lived there. i wouldnt have ever thought he might have been involved.

Nope... Nothing like the sketch.

I'm not naming any names though,'cause I don't want to start any kind of crazy rumors. I just have my own suspicions about who did it and why, and I just hope this case is solved soon so it can all be laid to rest.

I know i said i wasn't gonna use this name anymore but today for some reason for everyone to understand i had to use it and not use the new name. Out there where they lived i use to live right around that curve on the gravel and everybody out there in that little area always watched out for each other and would leave their doors unlocked until nightime. This happen right as the sun was going down so you could still see very good. I was gonna go out to my mom's old house that very day at that time and something just told me not to and i turned around and came back. She had those dogs that usually ran loose during the evening so i never understood the dogs letting anyone they didn't know come up there. Everything i have said may not have a thing to do with anything but i wanted to explain why doors were unlocked and it wasn't at night.
