Description

December 8, 1986. Gaylord, Michigan. A police officer stopped to check out a truck parked on the side of a road and discovered a body in the bed of the truck. The man was oilfield worker Jerry Tobias. He was bloody, bruised and his hands appeared to have been bound with jumper cables. Also in the truck was a clue; packages of meat from a local butcher shop. The investigation into the case first focused on a single suspect, Laurie Moore, a local butcher. He would later be arrested and tried for murder. The key witness for the prosecution was Debra Parmentier who knew a lot about what had happened and as time went on her story grew as others became implicated in the crime. This case is so wild that it may seem unbelievable but it is true. This is part one in a special two part series.

I can't wait to listen to this tonight because it hits close to home. My family has a cabin near Gaylord & my grandparents live just north of there (they've been there for over 30 years now) & I remember my Papa telling me about this case. There's not a whole lot that goes on up there so this case & the case of the 2 brothers who fed missing hunters to their pigs, are huge stories for the local people. Gaylord is actually a busy area (for up north), now & anyone that lives within an hour of it, goes there to go shopping because it's only the city in like a 60 mile radius that has a Kohls & Walmart. It's still really small compared to where I live in Metro-Detroit, though & back then it was the absolute definition of a "small town where stuff like this just doesn't happen."
