Man,88,Beheaded,His Wife Missing From Home in Gated Georgia Community.

Authorities in Georgia are investigating the brutal murder of an 88-year-old man in his home in a gated golf course community and searching for his 87-year-old wife, who they suspect has been kidnapped.

Russell Dermond’s headless body was discovered in the garage of his lakefront home on Lake Oconee on Tuesday by neighbors who grew concerned after he and his wife, Shirley, failed to show up for a Kentucky Derby party on Saturday, WXIA, NBC News’ Atlanta affiliate, reported.
Sheriff’s deputies who responded to the call found no sign of Shirley Dermond, though her purse and phone were left behind. So, too, were the couple's cars.

Nor could they locate Russell Dermond’s head, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported.

Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills called the case “the strangest” of his career at a news conference Thursday.

"The only one who's not a suspect is me because I know where I was," he said.

Sills said that the couple, who had been married for 68 years, was last heard from on Thursday, and that investigators believe the crime occurred sometime between Friday and Sunday. He said he did not believe it was a random attack, noting that there was no sign of forced entry or a struggle.

Nor does he consider Shirley Dermond a suspect.

"The body was moved, and I just don't think an 87-year-old lady can do it," he said.

Sills said the couple, who have three grown children, had no history of domestic problems, according to friends they have interviewed. He said the couple had moved to the Great Waters subdivision of the resort community of Reynolds Plantation after Russell Dermond, who owned fast food franchises, retired two decades ago.

Sills asked anyone with information on the case to call the Putnam County Sheriff's Office at 706-485-8557.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
