Tied with a heart string. The floral offerings for the casket of Mrs. Hiram Anderson, Jr., last Friday were indeed beautiful and massive, many of the bouquets undoubtedly being costly and tied with ribbons of silk and satin. But we venture that the tiniest bouquet of all was tied with a heart string. As the beautiful array of blossoms was being carried from the cars which transported them from the Chaffin Funeral Home to the Community Hall by the sixteen flower girls, Mrs. Chaffin, who was supervising, noticed a little girl standing at the edge of the crowd. She held in her hand just a small bouquet, flowers from the wildwood, and as she nestled them close to her breast and bathed them with the streaming tears from her eyes, she wondered if her little floral offering could find a place among the beautiful and the massive.

            My name is Samantha Cowan, and I am Carl Anderson's Niece. I saw your story on your website and I need to make a correction or two if you don't mind. He was actually about 5"11' and he had brown eyes not blue. He also has a sty on his left eye and he has a huge scar on the left side of his stomach from a really bad staff infection he had last summer. He walks with a limp to the left side due to a bad knee. His hands, feet and legs areas are all swollen due to his extreme . He lives with his 80 yr old mother who isn't in good health. He would never go anywhere especially alone without letting her know where he was going, when he was coming back and he always had his phone with him so she could call him or he could call her just to check in.

If you need any more information about him feel free to email me at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Murder Charges Filed in Missing Person’s Case

   GALENA — Two women have been charged with first-degree murder in the death of Carl Glenn Anderson, a Highlandville man reported missing Feb. 25.

   The murder charges against Teri Dean-Morrison, 43, of Highlandville, and Cheryl Crawford, 42, of Reeds Spring, were announced by Sheriff Richard Hill during a press conference Tuesday morning.

   Hill said Anderson, 46, was last seen Feb. 23 at the shared Stone County residence of Dean-Morrison, Crawford and Eugene Crider, 42, of Highlandville.

   Earlier this month, Stone County deputies executed a search warrant at the residence and discovered “a large amount of blood was found in several locations on the ceiling in the master bedroom,” a press release said.

   The release said the carpet flooring, exterior windows and the interior door in the master bedroom had been recently replaced and the ceiling texture removed in an attempt to conceal blood stains.

   Samples taken at the scene were later confirmed to contain the DNA of Anderson, the release said.

   Dean-Morrison, Crider and Crawford were arrested March 9 and charged with tampering with evidence. Hill said phone records confiscated by detectives led them to another property in southern Stone County. Deputies executed two warrants at the property.

            During the second search, on March 21, human remains were discovered that were determined to belong to Anderson. During the press conference, Hill gave his condolences to Anderson’s family and thanked them for their patience. He said the investigation is ongoing, and that additional charges may be filed against Crider.


Anderson, Carl Glen   1975 - 23 Feb 2012

            Preliminary hearings for two Stone County women charged with first-degree murder have been set for May 25th.

            Teri Dean-Morrison and Cheryl C. Crawford are facing first-degree murder charges for the death of Carl Anderson of Highlandville.

            Anderson, who was 46 years-old, was allegedly last seen February 23rd at a gathering at Dean-Morrison's house at 263 Akita Run near Hootentown. Dean-Morrison shared the home with Crawford and Eugene "Gene" Crider.

            Dean-Morrison told deputies she took Anderson back to his home in Highlandville; Anderson's mother said he never returned home and she filed a missing person's report on February 25th.

            According to the probable cause statement, cell phone records allegedly led authorities to obtain a search warrant for Earl Kearney's property at 55 Kearney Lane off of Highway OO near Kimberling City on March 19th.

            "By examining the phone records and cross referencing the cell phone towers, it led Detectives to a property located on Highway OO in Stone County which belongs to Earl Kearney, a known associate of Teri Dean. The phone records showed that one or more of the three suspects spent a considerable amount of time at the property of Earl Kearney on the evening of Thursday, February 23rd and Friday, February 24th."

            During a second search of Kearney's, who is a former boyfriend of Dean-Morrison's, property on March 21st authorities found human remains, which sources say were dismembered. The remains were sent to the Missouri Highway Patrol crime lab and confirmed as Anderson's late on March 23rd.

Eugene "Gene" Crider

            Eugene Crider was charged with tampering with physical evidence in connection to Anderson's murder and was bound over for trial after waiving his preliminary hearing. His girlfriend, Krystal Buras, is facing the same charge. She is due back in court on May 16th.

Krystal N. Buras is due back in court next month

            Stone County Sheriff says human remains belong to Highlandville man, two charged with murder for his death Carl Anderson's dismembered body was found in a location off Highway OO

March 27, 2012|KSPR News, Emily Rittman

            GALENA, Mo. - The body of a missing Highlandville man has been found and two people are now being charged with murder in connection with the death of Carl Anderson, Stone County Sheriff Richard Hill said in a press conference at the Stone County Courthouse this morning.

            Anderson was last seen Feb. 23 at a home in Stone County; investigators there later found Anderson's blood on the ceiling. Portions of the home, such as carpet, flooring and windows had been replaced.

            Anderson's remains were found by authorities at a location off Highway OO, Hill said. Investigators keyed in on the property after three people -- Teri Dean-Morrison, Cheryl Crawford and Eugene Crider -- spent extensive time at the location. After the three were arrested in Lake Ozark on March 9, their cell phones were seized and authorities referenced cell logs and towers to determine the three had spent extensive time at the property near Highway OO Feb. 23-24.

            Stone County Prosecutor Matt Selby is expected to charge two county residents with first-degree murder in the death of 46-year-old Carl Glenn Anderson, Highlandville. Stone County officials made that announcement at a press conference 9:30 a.m., March 27. Teri Lynn Dean Morrison and Cheryl Crawford are expected to face murder charges March 27.

Morrison, Crawford and Eugene Crider were all charged earlier with tampering with evidence at the residence they share on Akita Run. The trio were already being held at the Stone County Jail. Stone County officials said the investigation “continues on Eugene Crider with the possibility of charges being filed against him at a later date.”

            According to reports from officials, remains—body fragments—found March 22 in rural Stone County, were identified as Anderson’s.

            In a press release March 27, Stone County Sheriff Richard Hill offered his sympathy to Anderson’s family and thanked investigators.

            “I would like to give my condolences to the family of Carl Anderson and thank them for being patient during this investigation,” he said. “I would also like to acknowledge the following for their assistance in this investigation: Christian County Sheriff’s Office, Missouri State Highway Patrol’s Division of Drug and Crime Control, Missouri State Highway Patrol’s State Crime Lab, with special thanks to Jason Wyckoff and a special acknowledgment to detectives Shawn Fields and Matt Maggard and their captain, Tim Gideon of the Stone County Sheriff’s Office, who put in countless hours into this case.”

            According to information contained in an earlier probable cause statement, during the execution of a search warrant, “a large amount of blood was found in several locations on the ceiling in the master bedroom,” of the home on Akita Run.

            According to the statement, that blood typed back to Anderson. In addition, carpet, flooring, windows and doors had been recently replaced and recovered receipts showed recent purchases of “household cleaning supplies, ceiling texture, carpet and windows.”

            Those purchases were made within 24 hours of Anderson’s last known contact with anyone.

            According to information from Stone County, Morrison, Crawford and Crider were arrested March 9 in Lake Ozark. At the time of their arrest, their cell phones were seized and later searched. By examining the phone records and cross referencing the cell phone towers, it led detectives to a property located on Highway OO in Stone County which belongs to Earl Kearney, a known associate of Morrison. The phone records showed that one or more of the three suspects spent a considerable amount of time at the property of Kearney on the evening of Feb. 23 and 24.

            “A search warrant was applied for and obtained for the property of Earl Kearney and the warrant was executed on March 19,” Hill said in his news release. “Based on information from that search warrant and after doing further investigation, a second search warrant for the property was applied for and obtained. The second warrant was executed on March 21. During the second search warrant, human remains were located. Laboratory exams confirmed the remains were that of Carl Glenn Anderson. Our investigation is still ongoing...”

            The Highlandville man was reported missing Feb. 23. According to a Christian County Sheriff’s Department release, Anderson lived with his mother, Ruby Stutesman.

            Stutesman said she and her daughter left the Highlandville home for a doctor’s visit in Springfield about 10 a.m. Feb. 23 and contacted Anderson throughout much of the day via cell phone. She says her son went to dinner with friends in Ozark who say they dropped Anderson off at home about 5 p.m.

            “We got home about 3 p.m. and his truck was here, but he wasn’t. We never heard them drop him off and if they did, he never came inside,” she said.

            Stutesman believes her son had to have been picked up from the house.

            The family said cell phone records recorded a text sent at 6:30 p.m. from Anderson’s phone before the phone went dead.

            “He’s just gone,” Stutesman said in an earlier interview. “There is no reason for it.”

            Stutesman said a group of friends and family searched the woods around the home March 3, but found no sign of Anderson.

            Officials gave no motive at the time of the press conference for the murder. In another strange twist, Anderson’s niece, Samantha Cowan, 28, died just days after posting a Facebook message about her uncle’s disappearance.

Died, at her home near Sparta, March 3d, little Della Anderson, daughter of J., M. and R. Minty Anderson, after a short illness of six days. The parents had the help and sympathy of their neighbors in the sickness and death of their little girl and which was very much appreciated. Little Della left father and mother and one little sister, aged five. The latter, when told that her sister was dead, refused to believe it. She asked her Aunt Mag, “Has God got her now, is Ella now a little angel?” The funeral discourse was conducted by Eld. Gray. We should turn from the sad thoughts of the cold grave, And look, through faith, to him, who is able to save, In the hope of an eternal day. Two little eyes are closed in death, Two little hand have gone to rest, Two little feet the way has trod The glorious road that leads to God. Why should we bid it longer stay? While God calls it from us away From hence to heaven now to live, God who did its being give. Closing words, and don’t delay Hark to Jesus, we hear him say, I’m the resurrection and the Way, We shall meet in an endless day.  N. J. Gray

She was received into the Methodist at three years of age but afterward at the age of 15 years professed faith in Christ and united with the Baptist church and remained a member till she died. Sister Anderson was ready to enter eternity which is the greatest thing we can say of any one, and may we follow her, bearing in mind the language of Bryant’s wonderful “thanatopsis”. So live that, when the summons come to join That innumerable caravan that moves To the pale realms of shade. where each one shall take His Chamber in silent hall of death Shall go not, like the quarry slave at night, Scourged in his dungeon, but sustained and soothed By an unfaltering trust, approach thy fate Like one who wraps the drapery of his couch About him and lies down to pleasant dreams.
