Family members sob as jurors see photographs PDF Print

Family members of murder victim Emily Anderson sobbed as jurors saw pictures of Emily’s body inside and outside of the toolbox in which she was found.

Murder suspect Jerry Anderson did not look at the photographs as his attorneys examined them. During his testimony, Lt. Tracy Pyle described finding the body in the toolbox in the back of the pickup truck. Thinking the vehicle was merely abandoned, he had a tow truck operator help open the box, hoping it would contain clues as to Emily’s whereabouts.

“I was taken aback,” he said,” I didn’t expect her to be in there.”

Defense attorneys questioned why the blood was only found in North Carolina when the truck was discovered in Duncan, South Carolina. The defense also asked about investigation of a former dairy employee who had been fired prior to the incident for destroying property. The defense alleged the man had ties to Duncan, South Carolina.
