Jack Berry Had Been Missing for Months … Dismembered Body Parts Encased in Concrete … Son Jeremiah Raymond Berry Arrested
A 20 year old has been arrested and accused of murdering his father, dismembering the body and encasing it in concrete. Hmm … sounds like another theory we have heard of.
42 year old Jack Berry had not been seen and had been missing for months. No one had heard from Jack Berry. Now investigators are following leads that Jack Berry’s body may have been scattered through out Montezuma County, AZ. The missing father’s son, 20 year old Jeremiah Raymond Berry, is being held as a suspect.
Arizona authorities tipped off the sheriff’s office on Monday about a missing person.
And on Tuesday night, they located several of the body parts. They continued the search on Wednesday.
Both Cortez police and the Colorado Bureau of Investigation are assisting the sheriff’s office with the investigation.
“We did recover some of the body parts and we’ve concluded with the assistance of a person of interest that the rest of the body was dismembered and placed throughout the county,” said Montezuma Sheriff Gerald Wallace.
Some of the body parts that police have recovered were encased in concrete. Authorities suspect Jeremiah Berry dismembered the body and encased remains in buckets of hardened concrete. Dismembered body parts encased in concrete buckets were found at a missing man’s home. The remains were found in three places, including the family home of Jack Berry, 42, who relatives said had been missing for a few months.
Wallace says searchers found two large buckets of hardened concrete, which were then run through a hospital CT scan machine. The scan revealed body parts inside.
He says the search is continuing with a dog trained to find bodies.
