The Bizarre Disappearance of the Jamison Family

In the fall of 2009, Bobby Dale Jamison, Sherilynn Jamison, and their six-year-old daughter Madyson Jamison went missing.
The seemingly normal family had vanished into thin air. They left no trace, no evidence, and no motive for their disappearance.
Investigators worked day and night to figure out what happened. The only break in the case was finding the family truck…
The truck was abandoned an hour away from the home. Inside, the police found their IDs, wallets, phones, Sherilynn’s purse, and their dog. The dog was alive but malnourished.
The biggest thing they found was $32,000 in cash. Bobby Dale and Sherilyn were on disability from the state, and no one could figure out how they had that much money.
One theory that investigators had was that they were involved with selling or buying drugs…
Still, there were things that didn’t line up with that theory. Why would they bring their daughter? Were they forced out of the truck? Was there a struggle?
After combing through miles and miles of the surrounding woods, they didn’t come up with any more evidence.
The case went cold.
It was four years before anything else came up… On November 16th, 2013, partial skeletal remains were found just three miles away from the location of the truck.
Forensics was able to figure out that they were the skeletons of two adults and one child… DNA taken from the skeletons matched the Jamisons.
The way that they died could not be determined, but the police were back on the case.
After more investigating, they were able to find security video taken from their home. This footage is extremely bizarre…
In the footage, we see the Jamison parents walking back and forth from the truck and loading it up. They were in a daze or a trance…
A few days before they disappeared, Bobby Dale’s pastor said that the missing man went to him because he felt that his home was haunted. He claimed that he had two to four ghosts on the roof.
A Satanic bible was also found in the home, but it was allegedly purchased as a joke. Bobby Dale told his pastor that he had read it. Now, people were under the assumption that they were some sort of Satanists…
Sherilynn’s mother, Connie, believes that they had gotten into a cult and were murdered by the members. There was no evidence to support that theory.
The police did look at a murder-suicide theory. There was an angry letter written by Sherilynn addressed to Bobby Dale…
The police speculated that Bobby Dale possibly led his family to the woods so he could murder them, but there was nothing pointing to that.
Even 10 years later, there is still no significant evidence pointing to why the family disappeared and how they died.
