In 2014, a successful, retired couple living on a beautiful lake in Georgia hadn’t been heard from for multiple days in a row. But after some neighbors went over to their home searching for them, they were nowhere to be found. But upon checking the house again days later, neighbors found one of them brutally slain in the garage, and the other was missing. That is, until some locals made a gruesome discovery in the water. This is the story of Shirley and Russell Dermond. Also known as the Lake Oconee Murders. *BONUS EPISODES* patron.com/goingwestpodcast *CASE SOURCES* https://caselaw.findlaw.com/ga-supreme-court/1185576.html https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/129547961/mark-christian-dermond https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/129892189/shirley-bell-dermond https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/129350580/russell-joseph-dermond https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/129547961/mark-christian-dermond https://www.dailynews.com/2014/06/13/beheading-of-husband-killing-of-wife-so-baffling-even-alligators-are-suspects/ https://www.wtsp.com/article/news/investigations/gone-cold-the-murders-at-lake-oconee-4-years-later-elderly-couples-son-opens-up/67-549362307 https://www.publicpolicerecord.com/georgia/doc-prisoner/MAJOR_TROY/0001097228 https://www.13wmaz.com/article/news/local/where-you-live/dermond-family-established-in-restaurant-business/93-299102252 https://darkideas.net/russell-and-shirley-dermond-the-beheading-at-lake-oconee/ https://www.unionrecorder.com/news/new-technology-to-be-used-in-unsolved-murder-case/article_943dc312-971b-11ea-bcfa-875703a04928.html https://www.lakeoconeenews.us/article/6-years-later Advertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brands Privacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy
