Missing Since: February 12, 1988
CaseEditDetails: Larry George was an ex-soldier who broke a restraining order in order to appear at the apartment of his ex-wife, Geraldine, demanding to see his children on the evening of February 12, 1988. Minutes earlier, Geraldine had returned home from a friend's house, and had gone over to that of her neighbor, Janice Morris, who was watching her children. When she sent them home, she talked to Janice for a few seconds before returning home and finding Larry with them. When she told him to leave, he pulled out a gun, and she ran back to Janice's house and told her to call the police. Janice, who was on the phone with her mother, was about to do so when Larry entered and shot her.
He then shot Geraldine while their children watched in horror. Finally, he shot Janice's boyfriend, Ralph Swain, in the back of the head and then fled. Police and paramedics soon arrived, and pronounced Janice dead at the scene. Ralph died in the hospital soon after, while Geraldine survived but is permanently paralyzed from the waist down. The next day, Larry abandoned his car in the forest and has not been seen since.
Extra Notes: This case first aired on the February 3, 1993 episode. He was also featured on America’s Most Wanted.
Results: Captured. Larry was apprehended in Delaware while fishing near the Christina River after a viewer noticed him from a rerun of the case. Two detectives went there undercover and began talking with him when a struggle ensued. They eventually threw him in the river, and as he tried to flee down it, he was arrested. Authorities found several weapons inside his tent and it appeared that he would resist arrest if he was found in it. He was soon extradited to Alabama, convicted of capital murder, and sentenced to death.
