TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – A group hopes a Facebook group and organized search parties will lead them to the remains of a friend they’ve not seen alive since December of 2008. That’s the last time anyone saw Jack Berry Jr. of Terre Haute alive. Terre Haute Police arrested Brent England for Berry’s murder, however, a jury found him not guilty.
Nearly six years after that not guilty verdict, Loreal Cowden launched the Facebook group, Finding Jack Berry Junior, in hopes of generating tips and information that may lead to Berry’s remains. His body was never recovered when prosecutors moved forward with England’s trial.
The group also plans search parties that will search the Wabash River for any possible clues. Cowden says they’ve secured the services of private investigators from New York.
