Terry Rouse’s cousin charged with his murder

Craig Lester Thrift, the cousin of Terry Eugene Rouse, has been charged with his murder. Terry disappeared from Waycross, Georgia in May 1991, when he was 24. The two men, in addition to being kin, were coworkers and best friends.

Thrift had apparently been a suspect since the beginning, but the cops never found enough evidence to charge him until now. Terry’s body hasn’t been found, though. During the investigation, the police searched Thrift’s house and found pot and guns, which resulted in charges against him. Several witnesses said he’d told them he’d shot Terry to death.
