Marilyn and Dennis DePue

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


Details: When high school 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 their three children and took her away, indicating he wanted to go to the hospital--but she was later murdered by a gunshot in 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, Dennis was located living in Dallas, Texas under the name Hank Queen. He fled when he saw himself being profiled, leading police on a lengthy high speed chase into Mississippi. After the pursuing officers disabled his van, he committed suicide to avoid capture.
