Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
On September 2, 1975 Dr. George Gilbert White, Jr. left his home and has not been seen since.
The last clue to White’s whereabouts surfaced when White’s wife, then residing near Grandview, reportedly received a brief, cryptic letter signed by White and post-marked in South Texas.
White was seen in the company of Durwood Grisham, an ex-convict whose body was found three miles east of Parker in far south Johnson County on December 27, 1975. Grisham was murdered in September 1975, around the same time White disappeared. The case is unsolved.
Grisham pleaded guilty in 1963 to six counts of conspiracy and substantive violations of federal narcotics laws.
The last known association of Grisham and White was reportedly a visit to a bank north of Fort Worth to complete a horse transaction.
George liked motorcycles. In the early ’70s he was badly injured in a motorcycle accident in Colorado and almost died. George had a very privileged upbringing and was used to having access to large funds. White graduated from Texas A&M, became a veterinarian in Houston and reportedly moved to the Grandview area to conduct scientific research on cattle and/or horses.
