Marilyn and Dennis DePue

Real Name: Dennis DuPue
Aliases: None Known
Wanted For: Murder
Missing Since: April 15, 1990


Details: When high school guidance counselor Marilyn DePue vanished in Coldwater, Michigan on Easter 1990, suspicion immediately fell upon her husband, Dennis. They had a stormy marriage, and when she filed for divorce, he retaliated. He assaulted her in front of her children, then took her away, indicating he wanted to go to the hospital -- but she was later murdered by a gunshot to the back of the head. He left her body behind an abandoned church, and has been on the run ever since.
Extra Notes: This case first aired on the March 20, 1991 episode.
Results: Solved. On the night of the broadcast, DePue was located living in Dallas, Texas under the name Hank Queen. He fled when he saw himself profiled, leading police on a lengthy high-speed chase into Mississippi. After the pursuing officers disabled his van, DePue committed suicide to avoid capture.
