Early in the morning of October 21, 2005, Terry and Darleen Anderson were discovered murdered in their Mongo home. It was described as a gruesome scene straight out of a horror movie, but tragically, this was all too real.
Even more tragically, exactly eight years have passed and despite a $20,000 reward offered by the family, this double homicide – the first ever in LaGrange County’s history – has yet to be solved.
To commemorate the 8th anniversary of the unsolved murders, a memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 20, at the graves of Terry and Darleen Anderson in the Mongo Community Cemetery on SR 3.
Music and prayers will be provided by Reverend James Bartlett of the Mongo Methodist Church. Guest speaker will be Sherry Musilek, Terry Anderson’s eldest daughter, who will talk about what life has been like searching for justice and closure during the last eight years since the tragedy.
The event will be held rain or shine.
The public is invited to attend the service to honor the memory of the Andersons, and to keep the case from becoming too cold to ever be solved.
