Was it murder or group suicide?

The Jamison family consisted of Bobby, his wife Sherilynn and their daughter Madyson. The family lived in Eufaula, Oklahoma but were looking to move to a new forty-acre plot of land and planned to live in a portable storage unit. The family went missing on October 8th, 2009, but their remains weren’t found until November 16th, 2013.

So… what happened to them?

The Jamison family

Both of the parents were in their 40’s at the time of their disappearance, but Madyson was only six years old. On the outside, the family seemed to be living a good life. However, Bobby suffered from major back pain that he sustained from a car accident in 2003. Sherilynn was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder and rarely took medication for it. She was prone to outbursts and would lash out at the family.

Bobby and Sherilynn also believed their house was haunted. They claimed that two or three spirits lived on their roof and would harass the family. Bobby was so desperate to get rid of the spirits that he went to his pastor at church and asked if there was a special kind of bullet that he could shoot at the spirits to get rid of them.
