Description

On Labor Day 1993, Shelley Lou Watkins, her husband Jerry, and others gathered at their cedar Creek Lake home to celebrate the holiday. But after an argument broke out between the couple, Shelley disappeared and since the manner in which she was reported missing is suspect at the very least, no searches were conducted. By the time the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office found out about the missing mother of two, it was far too late since her body was found floating in the Trinity River by fisherman the very same day. Although a grand jury indicted the prime suspect, he never stood trial and Shelley Lou Watkins’s murder remains unsolved.

If you have any information about the slaying of 35-year-old Shelley Lou Watkins on Labor Day of 1993, please contact the Henderson County Sheriff’s Department at 903-677-6331.
