The Georgia couple is described as "sweet as can be," and authorities are scrambling to unravel the mystery of how Russell Dermond, 88, was killed and then reportedly decapitated, and his 87-year-old wife disappeared.
The Putnam County Sheriff's Office is treating Shirley Dermond's disappearance from the Eatonton home -- where her husband was found dead Tuesday -- as an abduction, Sheriff Howard Sills said in a statement.
Police suspect that Russell Dermond was killed between Friday and Sunday.
The Dermonds' friends hadn't heard from them in days and went to their home in the upscale, gated, lakeside Great Waters community, where they found in the garage "what we are virtually certain is the body of 88-year-old Russell Dermond," Sills said.

I suspect the Amish.
Horrible! I wonder what happened.
As one ages it’s a good idea to keep one or more big dogs and one or more big, loaded guns around the house.
or doper son or grand kid
Jus a redstribution thang. Yall had yo time to spen dat money-we be gittin it now!
Darn Big Dawgs.
Possibly not. They lived in an expensive, gated community where Amish might stand out too much. I also live in a community where they might stand out too much and had a near brush with four probably illegal aliens who came to my door one late evening, knocked aggressively, and ran like Hell when they saw me approaching the door. I’ve never come so close with the Amish.
Just more illegal aliens doing the looting Americans won’t or can’t do. /s
I practice what I preach. My two DBDs are an 85 lb. Pitador and a 110 lb. Great Dane. And, before the Terrible Boating Accident . . .
We used to suspect Muslims, and I think in decapitation cases, we still do.
Did the wife recently join the local mosque?
I agree. Doesn’t sound like a typical Amish-type crime to me, what with the beheading. But it’s right up the alley for an MS-13, or one of their wannabes.
lots of amish are muslim. don’t forget.
I heard it was on a lake and police are investigating whether killer/killers came in by boat. FBI has been asked to help.
The head is still missing.
Some kind of ritual or satanic killing?
Very bizarre and unsettling.
The POS’sss who did this have a fiery eternal home awaiting for them. Some people live like the devil as if God is not watching.... how can they sleep at night doing such evil?
