Annette Craver Vail’s husband charged in murder of first wife

Felix Vail has been charged with the murder of his wife Mary over FIFTY YEARS after she drowned in the Calcasieu River in Louisiana. Even at the time, Mary’s drowning was considered suspicious, and Felix was actually arrested for murder but released a few days later for lack of evidence.

In 1973, eleven years after Mary’s death, Felix’s girlfriend Sharon Hensley disappeared from California. She doesn’t have her own Charley page because I’m not sure if she was ever actually reported missing, but I do have a photo of her. Felix was the last person to see her alive. Then, in 1984, eleven years after Sharon disappeared (sensing a pattern here), Felix’s eighteen-year-old wife Annette disappeared from Oklahoma.

A newspaper in Mississippi ran a series of articles on Felix’s curiously bad luck luck with women in 2012. When a reporter tried to interview him, he suddenly fled the area. He was arrested in Comal County, Texas a few days ago.

Felix and Mary had one son, Bill. Bill died of cancer in 2009, but before his passing he made a video statement saying his father had told him several times about how he murdered Mary. I hope that statement can get introduced into evidence at the trial. I hope the info about Sharon and Annette can be introduced too, but I’m not all that confident of that.

This guy reminds me of Randy Roth.

    Do you want me to check with the CDOJ to see if they have Sharon Hensley in their database?

      Would appreciate, yes.

        Checked with them. She’s not in the database as missing.
