Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Ms. Marshall was last seen by a family member at her home at 221 E. Tennessee Street, around 10 a.m. the day she disappeared. The family member left and returned to find Ms. Marshall gone but her purse, medicine and jewelry were all left behind. MarshallOs former husband, Gary Head, was still living with her although their three-year marriage had ended in divorce that January. Head allegedly told police that Marshall was at the home, wearing a bathing suit, when he fell asleep there at 2 p.m. that day. When he woke up 30 minutes later she was gone. However, police were notified a week later by Ms. Marshall's daughter, when Ms. Marshall failed to show up for a family gathering. Marshall had recently quit her job at ScraperOs Lounge, a bar on Maryland Street. Head was also seen driving Ms. Marshall's black Corvette just days after her disappearance. Family members told police she considered the car "her baby" and would never have left town without it. Head moved to Florida within days of his ex-wife's disappearance. Court records show the two divorced in early 1993, but Head had recently moved into her apartment before her disappearance.
Ex-husband Gary Head was found innocent after a 1999 trial in which no physical evidence was introduced by prosecutors. Prosecutors had produced no physical evidence and there was no body to indicate a murder had taken place, although police searched extensively for one, even flying over the Warrick County strip mine pits where the couple had fished. During the trial, four witnesses testified Head talked of killing his wife before she disappeared. One man said Head went as far as to offer him $30,000 to kill her.
