An elderly man living in the Ozarks has been charged with murder in connection to his wife and daughter vanishing 23 years ago.

Ronald Wrisinger was indicted by a grand jury yesterday on two counts of first degree murder in the disappearance of Sherry Wrisinger, 40, and Johnna Wrisinger, 16, of Richmond, MO., on or about June 7, 1986.
Richmond is northeast of Kansas City.



No probable cause statement was issued with the arrest warrant and charging documents because the indictment was sealed until cops arrested Wrisinger.

What that means is that because the charges were brought by grand jury Wrisinger was automatically arraigned in Circuit Court so we will have to wait until Wrisinger's trial to see what evidence the state has against the 67 year-old man.


Ray County Prosecutor Jim Thompson said that investigators have been pouring over new evidence and old evidence over the last four months in an effort to piece together the puzzle of what happened to Sherry and Johnna on June 7, 1986, for grand jury members.

Friends told authorities that Sherry had been playing cards with friends earlier that evening, and Sherry had been on a date but returned home to make curfew. They have not been seen or heard from since about midnight June 6, 1986.

Ronald Wrisinger never reported his wife and daughter missing.....his brother filed a missing persons report with police three months after they went missing.

When cops finally did question Wrisinger, he told them that his wife had run off with a wealthy veterinarian and taken their youngest daughter with her.

Authorities say that story is bogus, as there is no veterinarian with the name Wrisinger provided them.

A neighbor who lives next door to the Wrisinger's Richmond home says she often looks over the fence and wonders what happened. "I remember rumors about him pouring concrete she says.....no one around here has ever forgotten this."

Wrisinger, who has remarried, was arrested yesterday (05-27-09) in Marble Falls, Ark., on what would have been Johnna's 39th birthday.

Wrisinger waived extradition to Missouri and was arraigned on the murder charges this afternoon (05-28-09.) He entered a plea of not guilty.

He is being held on $500,000 bond. His next scheduled court appearance is June 3rd.

Quoted from above.

Since all of the evidence has not been presented to the public, how are we to know that it is all circumstantial??

A truly concerned citizen...concerned for the 2 missing women...

If there wasn't evidence the case would not have gotten past the grand jury. At the very least his actions are suspicious. Why would the man's BRO report the wife/daughter missing? Maybe because even he didn't believe ron's story. I don't know if the man is guilty or not but something smells rotten.
He'll get his chance in court.

I remember going to a party that Kristy had at the house after they went missing. He had just installed a hot tub in the basement. Hopefully the new home owners removed it or allowed it to be removed and the cops dug up under it. That was the new concrete he poured around the time they went missing.
