The Unsolved Mystery of the Jamison Family: Murder, Suicide or Something Else?
When the police are informed of a missing persons case, investigations usually follow a similar pattern. With the information available, they form theories about possible scenarios, and as new evidence comes to light, scenarios are eliminated one by one until the case is finally solved. In the case of the Jamison family, however, the investigation did not follow this pattern. With the Jamisons’ disappearance, on the contrary, whenever new information became available, investigators found themselves ever more confounded and further from the truth. To this day, the Jamisons’ case remains unsolved, one of America’s strangest and most baffling mysteries.
A relatively unremarkable family
Although they had their eccentricities, on the surface Bobby and Sherilyn Jamison were a relatively unremarkable couple who liked to keep to themselves. They met in the summer of 2002 and quickly fell in love. They were married less than two years later, and in 2004, Sherilyn gave birth to a baby girl, Madyson. The family lived together in Eufaula, Oklahoma, with Sherilyn’s son from a previous marriage, Colton, although just before their disappearance, Colton had been sent to live with his father.
