Service marks 7 years for unsolved beating deaths

MONGO, Ind. – Relatives and friends gathered Sunday to mark the passing of seven years since the unsolved beating death of a couple at their rural home in northeast Indiana.

The daughter of Terry and Darleen Anderson said she hopes the gathering at the gravesite helps draw attention and new clues to police about their October 2005 deaths near the LaGrange County community of Mongo.

Sherry Musilek told The News Sun that she’s still angry knowing that her parents’ killer hasn’t been found. She continues to operate the website and to offer $20,000 reward.

Phil Burlew was a neighbor of the Andersons for more than 30 years and told WANE-TV that he’ll keep coming to the memorials until their family has closure.
