  • Details of Disappearance
    March was last seen at her home in Forest Hills, Tennessee on August 15, 1996. The last person reportedly seeing her is her husband Perry March. According to her husband, Janet packed some bags, walked out the door and drove off. She didnít say where she was going, but he says it was the last time he saw her.

    A week into their investigation, police found Janet's car, parked in the lot of an apartment complex a few miles from the March house. They found personal effects, including a passport. Three weeks after Janet March disappeared - with no credit card use, no phone calls home to check on the kids, and her car found with most of her belongings still packed inside - the police decided this was no longer just a missing persons case. It was a homicide.

    The prime suspect was Perry March, and he refused police requests to interview him or his children. When he also refused to allow his house to be searched, police got a warrant. Police carefully searched the house, as well as nearby woods, two lakes and a river. They found no body, and no evidence that a crime had been committed.

    Perry and his children have since moved to Mexico, and Perry remarried a woman whom he met during his first week in Mexico. They married within a year, just a little over two months after a Tennessee court declared Janet March legally deceased.

    Since that night, no one has ever reported seeing Janet March again. Foul play is suspected.
