    The remains of Jerry McFalls (63) and his wife Susan (63) were found nine months after they disappeared and an investigation is ongoing

    https://kdminer.com/news/2018/mar/29...tlefield-coup/

    Jerry and Susan McFalls were last seen at their residence in Littlefield on Jan. 11, and were reported missing Jan. 21.

    Sheriff?s deputies are actively working the case and have ?diligently processed? the scene around the McFalls home without success, MCSO spokeswoman Anita Mortensen said.

    Cadaver dogs and drones were used to search the surrounding area.

    Detectives served four search warrants resulting from leads provided by people in the community in far northern Mohave County, and potential evidence has been gathered and transferred to the FBI for analysis.

    Presumptive tests on a mattress cover that appeared to have blood spots came back negative for blood evidence. It?s been sent off for further testing.

    Shell casings related to the incident were collected by detectives during the original search warrant. According to family members, a friend used the property for recreational shooting after the search, which left more shell casings to be discovered.

    Bullet holes found in a shed were photographed during the initial search by detectives.

    Anyone with information on the disappearance of the McFalls is urged to contact MCSO at 1-800-522-4312.

    Weeks before an Arizona couple went missing, one of their neighbors shot at them with a B.B. gun, authorities said.

    It's one of several incidents that led the Mohave County Sheriff's Office to name a person of interest in the disappearance of Littlefield residents Jerry and Susan McFalls. But it wasn't the accused shooter who officials named ? it was her husband.

    David Myhaver, 52, has been named a person of interest, said Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Anita Mortensen.

    She would not say what other interactions between the two families led authorities to do so. She said the assault "contributed but was not the only incident."


    Lida Oakley, Myhaver's wife, shot Jerry McFalls in the abdomen with a B.B. gun Nov. 25, court records say. She was charged with one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

    The case was delayed twice due to "issues with the defense attorney being there" and the fact that the North Canyon Justice Court in Colorado City meets infrequently, according to Deputy Mohave County Attorney Rod Albright.

    The charge was officially dismissed Feb. 5.

    Albright said it was dropped because the McFalls were missing, but the state will refile if the couple are found.

    I've been following this one since the beginning. It was so strange how the McFall's just disappeared, left the doors open, music playing, etc....
    They had been having problems with the neighbor, David and his wife, Lida Oakley. The McFalls were riding a 4 wheeler and the neighbors shot them with a BB gun. Lida took the wrap, but since David is firearms dealer, I would imagine any kind of charges against him or Lida would really hurt their Firearms business. Also, there was some issues with the property the McFalls were living in. David and Lida lived in the home first, but the McFalls bought it from bankrupcy.

    The neighbors probably had something to do with their disappearance. I'm guessing they were probably pissed about them buying their house.
    I'm really interested in seeing what happens w this one.

    I would be shocked if it wasn't the neighbors. That's how convinced I am it is.

    I think they ambushed the Mcfall's that day, killed them, then dumped their bodies somewhere out there in the desert. Or dumped them in one of those old wells around there.


    This shouldn't be a missing person case anymore.

    I think they may have found the remains

    WOODS CROSS — A Woods Cross family was waiting to hear Friday if the remains of two bodies found near the Utah-Arizona border belong to a couple missing since the beginning of the year.

    The family of Jerry and Susan McFalls was informed by the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Thursday afternoon that two bodies had been discovered Monday in the Virgin River Gorge area.

    “He wouldn’t give me a whole lot of details as to a specific location where at,” Meridee McFalls told the Deseret News. “They were unsure at the time whether they were male or female.”

    The remains were taken to "the FBI crime lab," according to a statement from the Mohave County Sheriff's Office, though it did not say in what state. FBI investigators and sheriff's deputies combed through the area for evidence for four days before announcing their discovery, according to the statement. The sheriff's office did not say who found the remains.

    Investigators asked the family if they could expedite dental records on the couple to help identify the bodies.

    Jerry David McFalls and his wife, Susan Marie McFalls, both 63, owned a second home in Littlefield, Arizona, and have not been heard from since Jan. 11. On that day, the couple texted family members that they would be traveling to their main home in West Jordan, according to court documents.

    According to a search warrant filed in 5th District Court in St. George, a Mohave County sheriff's deputy went to the McFalls' residence on Jan. 21 to conduct a welfare check. The deputy found their house unlocked, pick-up trucks that looked like they were in the process of being loaded, including "coolers and snacks" in the back of one, two dogs inside the house with no food or water, and a purse, wallet and cellphone on the kitchen table.

    The McFalls' son, who lives in Woods Cross, told investigators at the time that his parents "are not the type to leave the property without a vehicle, and do not hike due to their physical limitations. Susan Marie McFalls is reported to be a diabetic, and has issues walking for extended periods of time," according to the warrant.

    The family reiterated that on Thursday.

    "From their house to the gorge is about 3 to 4 miles,” Jerry McFalls Jr. said. “My mom had degenerative back disease … and she couldn’t walk more than 100 yards in that kind of terrain. They always took their side-by-side if they were going on the dirt roads or one of their cars if they were going somewhere else. They really didn’t walk anywhere."

    "If it is them, they did not get there on their own - it’s one thing that we know for sure,” Meridee McFalls said. “All their vehicles were at home. They did not go for a walk up the gorge any direction.”

    Shell casings were found near the couple's truck in Littlefield and at least one handgun, possibly two, were missing from the house, court records state.

    In March, a private investigator hired by the family said he believed the McFalls were the victims of homicide.

    A sheriff's office spokeswoman on Friday said she did not know how long it would take to identify the remains that were found or determine a cause of death.

    It’s a mystery that has hung over Jerry and Susan McFalls’ family for 10 months, since the South Jordan couple disappeared in early January.

    That weekend, the couple had planned to travel from their Arizona property back to Utah. But when the McFalls didn’t show up, their family drove to the Littlefield home.

    They found food that had grown cold on the counter. Pets had been left behind. Personal items in their proper places.

    But Jerry and Susan had vanished.

    On Thursday, at least one piece of the mystery was solved: The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office announced that one of two sets of human remains found near the Virgin River Gorge a month prior was identified as Susan McFalls, 63. While the second set of remains have not been identified, the family believes the body likely belongs to Jerry, 63.

    But larger questions still remain. How did they end up there? Was someone responsible for their deaths?

    The sheriff’s office say their investigation is ongoing. But McFalls’ family members said in a video they posted on a Facebook page Thursday that they believe “something happened” to get the couple to leave their property Jan. 11.
