Overview of Terri Fourcher

Unfortunately, there is very little information available about Terri or her disappearance.

We do know that Terri was originally from North Carolina. In November of 1995, she traveled out to Reno, NV from her family’s home in North Carolina.

Terri was last seen leaving a hotel.

Terri was last seen on the evening of August 10, 1996 leaving the former Flamingo Hilton Hotel in downtown Reno, NV. According to a friend, Terri was planning to go on a date with an unidentified man. Whether or not she made it to her date is unknown. This man is not wanted by authorities for questioning.

Sixteen years later, authorities searched a property in California.

On May 1-2, 2012, officials with the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted a search of a property that had previously belonged to serial killers Wesley Shermantine and Loren Herzog, dubbed the ‘Speed Freak Killers’.

Loren Herzog and Wesley Shermantine, also known as the 'Speed Freak Killers'.

Shermantine and Herzog were responsible for the murder of four confirmed victims, though they may have been responsible for the deaths of up to 24 victims. While on death row, Shermantine informed bounty hunter Leonard Padilla that he had connected his partner, Loren, and another friend to a home on Drais Road in Stockton, CA as an area where Terri's remains may be located. Shermantine gave investigators several letters and maps before his execution. This information claims that Terri is buried in Linden, CA, leading to the search of the property. According to authorities, who spent two days searching the property, no human remains were found.

Where the case stands today.

Today, more than 26 years later, Terri remains missing and her case remains unsolved. At the time of her disappearance, Terri was described as a 28 year old caucasian woman with blonde hair and blue eyes. She was 5’3” tall and weighed between 115-118 lbs. Terri's ears are pierced. She has been diagnosed with Hepatitis C. Terri has family ties in California, Oregon, and North Carolina.
