Anyone know what happened in this case?

Reginald Kirtdoll, a 17-year-old boy who went missing back in 2001, has a new AP. I know that a few months after his disappearance the police said he’d been killed in a drug deal gone bad and named a woman, Veronica Greenlee, whom they said had helped her brother commit the murder. I did some more digging today and found the brother’s name: Terrel James Weisse. But I can’t find anything on when, how or if this murder case went forward. The last articles I can find on the subject are from 2001.

It appears that Weisse, at least, was convicted. I looked up his criminal record and he’s got a long and varied one: arrests dating back to the eighties for drugs, theft, “public order crimes” and “criminal mischief” (whatever those are), and failing to identify a fugitive from justice. He apparently has a son named for him who is also getting into trouble with the law. The criminal record thing says Weisse has been in prison for murder since March 2001 (which is when the articles said he was arrested for Reginald’s death) and his sentence is due to expire in 2026. That doesn’t seem like a very long murder sentence, especially for Texas. But I can’t find any details of the trial or plea.

I looked up Greenlee’s record and found a woman who appears to be the right one, but I’m not sure how the murder case played out for her. It mentions felony murder charges from the record, but I think she might have pleaded to a lesser charge — I’m not sure, it’s difficult to figure it out. In any case, she’s been in and out of jail in Texas and Massachusetts on various charges since 2002.

You’d think there’d be SOME news about this. It was, after all, a capital murder case. But it did involve drugs and the victim was a young black man so perhaps I should not be so surprised.

    Very sad-I cant seem to find anything on him either. Race plays a huge part in how much publicity a MP case gets.

    • Meaghan October 15, 2010 / 9:27 pm

      Black men are one of the most common demographics of missing person. In fact, I think the most common kind of missing adult is a black man between 20 and 30. But how often do you hear about them? The fact that Reginald was apparently a drug dealer certainly didn’t help either.

      • Candice October 16, 2010 / 11:56 am

        Probably not, and I agree; I can barely remember when I saw a young black man on the news, and when they do write news articles, they are usually fairly short. Are you notified when the NCMEC releases new AP’s ?

      • Meaghan October 16, 2010 / 12:44 pm

        Usually they notify me, but not always.

  2. Candice October 16, 2010 / 2:20 pm

    OK, thanks, as I cant find the subscription page on the NCMEC :/

    I am Curious of veronica’s whereabouts also .I dated her back in the 80’s saw her periodically thru the 90’s and lost track of her till reading about this
    Is she still incarcerated?

    • trey jackson May 4, 2011 / 7:36 pm

      I went to school with Terrel and veronica back in the 80’s. veronica was great and her job was to constantly keep Terrel in line. Terrel would kick my butt once a week in school from the from about the 8th til the 10th grade. I couldn’t really fight and furthermore i didn’t really want to hurt anyone. Terrel has always been pretty short, and i think he might have had Napoleon complex. I have struggled through the years to get over his abuse and violence, and i still get very nervous whenever i hear someone raise his or her voice in anger. I forgive Terrel for his abusive ways towards me because somebody probably abused him in the same way. Any questions or comments will be answered. put “Terrel” in the subject line please. xtrey2x1@verizon.net

        Excuse me but terrel isnt short. You must be refering to Veronica’s youngest brother Harlon.

    She is free and living well. Her brother took blame so she could be a mom.

    • Joe Schultz August 29, 2011 / 4:54 pm

      thanks

    Hi. My friend Mike who was an arson investigator worked very hard on this case. He was a huge advocate of children and their rights. Mike died today in 2002 from cancer.

    Here is what happened with this case:

    Commissioners presented his widow Robin Renee Smith with a proclamation that honors Mike Smith for contributions he made in a capital murder investigation in 2001. According to a letter from Dallas Police Chief Terrell Bolton, Smith was instrumental in an investigation that led to the arrest of two men for murder of Balch Springs resident (a minor)Reginald Kirkdoll.

    The letter, read by Gent, cites Smith as the investigator who found the victim’s burned vehicle on a rural Kaufman County road and reported the discovery to the victim’s father. Smith is also credited for processing leads, field searches, surveillance and interviews that helped lead to the arrests.

    “We wanted to do something special to recognize Fire Marshal Smith, so we’ve written a proclamation and brought in Mrs. Smith to be part of this recognition,” Gent said.

      I understand that people were arrested for Reginald’s murder, but were they actually convicted?

      weisse family -thanks for the update . I hope Veronica is being a Great Mother . If you are in contact with her please ask her to email me joesblue@gmail.com

    • another friend December 17, 2011 / 12:50 pm

      Terry does not like to touch little girls. I’ve been around him my entire life and never once have I encountered this problem. He and his wife were wonderful people, and terrell has been convicted and is currently serving a sentence for his sister. Veronica is trying to be a mom and her family is doing well. She’s settled down and doing fine.

    Reggie was my best friend since we were 7. It’s seriuously sad that we couldn’t even give him the proper burial he deserved. I hurt daily when I think about what he meant to me and what he could’ve turned out to be. Just because he was involved in drugs doesen’t mean he was a bad dude. And the concern that the police department and public gave his situation was sub par. I’ll keep checkin this page for updates on his case. It’s nice to know that there is people out there that just care.

    • Java April 26, 2013 / 4:30 pm

      Versteven I agree with all that you expressed. People dont understand that just because this case was drug related that he was a bad guy. He was a smart guy that became caught up in what was normal in our neighborhood as many do. Veronica walked away and served no time while her brothers time is not enough for the life he took away. He never got the chance to turn his life around as i knew he would have done due to these people. I often would ride with Reggie to the apartment and I always felt that someone was wastching us or just up to no good and that gut feeling turned out to be true. I dont understand why they would kill him even if they owed him money Reggie was not the violent type to kill anyone over a debt owed or for any reason for that point. He was one of the most respectful people ive ever known and he is greatly missed and loved. I feel there is more to the story that we will never know.

      • Veronica's daughter March 20, 2014 / 11:24 pm

        Veronica did serve time. 18 months to be exact thank you

  11. Meaghan January 19, 2013 / 3:11 am

    I’ve never seen a picture of her.

  12. Joe January 22, 2013 / 9:42 am

    Veronica is but a Ghost ~I know many are saddened by “Reggies” Loss.I pray Hearts and Minds of all come to rest.

  13. Andrew April 15, 2013 / 2:26 am

    To not have been able to get true closer about my friend is heart breaking yes many lives were affected.Finding any accurate information has been a struggle in its self.Its been many capitol murder cases that information became public so why not my friend.this took place in 2001.We all (his family and friends) need and deserve to know reggie’s where about.The brother and sister deserve the death penalty who was the D.A you take plea bargins and still dont find the body

  14. Java April 26, 2013 / 4:32 pm

    correction*People dont understand that just because this case was drug related that he was not a bad guy.

    • Becky May 9, 2013 / 8:50 pm

      I’ve known Reggie since we were five and I thought that I was the only one still wanting to know more about his case. It’s an uneasy feeling that I have til this date about his death. One thing is for sure, what I hidden will come out to the light. The memories keep you alive Reggie:)

    It’s so sad because at the time of his disappearance he was only 17 still in high school. I happened to stumble across this case when I was searching for missing people. I am currently a criminal justice major and I am interested in cases and stories like this. I find Reginald a bright, handsome young black man, who at the time got caught up with drugs. It’s ashame that he was on this earth for a short amount time. Didn’t even get to see the future. My possibility is VERY high that Reginald is deceased. When I was reading the case before I got to the part about Reginald blood was found the woman and her brother. Reginald is deceased and was murdered and body disposed somewhere in Texas. As of now it’s been 13 years, I’m pretty sure his body is decapitated. At least the woman and her brother could do is tell the Reginald’s family is where his body is so the family & Reginald could have peace and a proper burial. It’s hard to believe that 13 years have gone by since Reginald family last seen him (2001). Mom speechless, the only thing I can say is, “WOW!”

  16. Kirtdoll Family November 30, 2013 / 2:01 am

    This entire situation is sad & hurtful to my family! My cousin has never been able to have his body buried properly. I understand that Veronica’s brother took all the blame so that she could be a mother, but what about my Uncle? He lost the chance to continue to be a father to his son because they chose to take Reggie’s life!!! Part of me wishes that Veronica & her brother never get a moment of peace, part of me wants to hate them both for they pain that my family still feels, but I can’t let those feelings take over. I was raised to love & not hate. The bible says we must forgive, & that vengeance is not ours…. The court system may have failed my family & Reggie but GOD will never let us down! “Vengeance is mine says the LORD” both Veronica & her brothers day of judgement before the LORD shall come…. I only wish that either of them would come clean about where Reggie’s body is so that we could lay his remains to rest in peace! My uncle & our family & friends at least deserve that! I pray that GOD has mercy on Veronica & her brothers soul!!!!!

  17. Kirtdoll Family November 30, 2013 / 2:12 am

    I wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who after 13 years still thinks of my cousin & our family! You don’t know how much it means to all of us… I am going to share all of your continued concerns for my cousin with the rest of our family… Reggie has a host of people who love him & keep his memory alive & this will mean a lot to his father! Thank you again from the bottom of my heart….
