Overview of Branson Perry

On Wednesday, April 11, 2001, Branson Perry invited his friend Jena over to his house in the vicinity of the 300 block of W Oak St. in Skidmore, Missouri to help clean the residence as his father, who had recently been hospitalized, was due to return home. At this same time, two other unnamed men were outside the residence working on Bob's car, which needed a new alternator. At approximately 3:00 p.m., Branson told Jena he was going to take a pair of jumper cables outside to a shed adjacent to the house. This was the last time he was seen.

After several years of investigation, police arrested Jack Wayne Rogers of Fulton, Missouri, on various charges unrelated to Branson's disappearance. In their investigation, they recovered message board posts made from Rogers's home computer that described a first-hand account of Perry's rape and murder. Rogers denied any involvement, and was sentenced to thirty years in prison on the unrelated charges in 2004.

On August 14, 2022, the current Nodaway County Sheriff, Randy Strong announced a suspect had been identified, but more evidence was needed before an arrest could be made.
