Details of disappearance and psychic work by Brian Ladd (login to view entire case as of May 2020)


Jeri was last seen by her husband, Robert J. "Bob" Duvall, at their home in Shorewood, Illinois on the evening of June 8, 1990. The couple's two young daughters spent the weekend in Michigan with their grandparents. Jeri was gone by the time her children returned. Robert reported her as a missing person four days after her disappearance, at the request of Jeri's mother.
A photograph of Robert is posted below this case summary. He is the prime suspect in Jeri's disappearance. Their children reported Jeri and Robert often had violent arguments and that Robert had choked Jeri and, on one occasion, threatened to burn their house down. The couple always made up afterwards and Robert usually bought Jeri expensive gifts to ease their reconciliation. Robert had scratches on his face and arm when he went to pick up his children after Jeri disappeared. He refused to discuss Jeri with his daughters after she went missing. It was Jeri's normal pattern to hide her purse whenever she argued with her husband. Months after her disappearance, Jeri's daughter found the purse hidden in the pocket of a snowsuit. She gave it to Robert and he promised to turn it over to the police, but he never did.
Jeri's family does not believe she left of her own accord. She had left her husband before, but had never been gone for very long and was never out of touch with her loved ones. She left behind all her belongings, including her car and money. In addition, she disappeared the day she and Robert were supposed to close on the sale of their house. Robert has been arrested multiple times both before and after Jeri's disappearance on various charges, but he has never been charged in connection with Jeri's disappearance. He now lives in Florida. Jeri's older daughter and her mother are still searching for her.
