[GA] Reward offered for finding officer's wife, 911 dispatcher Theresa Parker

Friday Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue's office authorized a $1,000 reward for information leading to finding Theresa Parker, a Walker County 911 dispatcher. State Rep. Jay Neal and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation assisted in putting together the reward. Her husband, Sam Parker, is currently the only named person of interest in Theresa's disappearance, and was fired a couple of days ago from LaFayette Police Department for explosives found in his work locker. Then from articles of yesterday's news - police were called to his residence:

Sheriff Steve Wilson says [Sam] Parker was actually holding two guns, a rifle and a pistol... Parker was upset with the Georgia Bureau of Investigations, the Federal Bureau of Investigations, and the media, and that he couldn't take the pressure any longer... "When we responded here we certainly didn't know what the outcome would be," the sheriff said... "I felt like last night we were able to save Sam Parker's life," Sheriff Steve Wilson says...

EXCERPT FROM NANCY GRACE SHOW:

Police Expand Search for Missing 911 Dispatcher
Aired March 30, 2007 - 20:00:00 ET

...GRACE: A lady 911 police dispatcher missing day nine. Out to Nicole Partin, investigative reporter, had there been any history of domestic violence?

NICOLE PARTIN, INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER: Yes, there had been, Nancy. In both 2002 and 2004, 911 calls show that there had been calls of domestic violence in the home. And then again in May of this year, calls had came in, both from Mr. Parker and then, 30 minutes before that, from Miss Parker, as well, claims of domestic violence in the home.

GRACE: Hold on. Hold on. That`s three calls, one in one day, and two in another day?

PARTIN: There were calls in 2002.

GRACE: Right.

PARTIN: Calls in 2004, and then again in May, there were also calls, 30 minutes she calls, 30 minutes later the husband calls, and says, you know, she`s claiming I`m ransacking the house, I`m abusing her. Come over here and see that I`m not. So both of them actually dialed 911 in one day.

GRACE: So she called claiming domestic abuse, and he called basically to tell?

PARTIN: Exactly.

GRACE: OK, so that`s three separate domestic abuse allegations. Did any of those go to court?

PARTIN: They did not. As far as we can tell, they did not. They were dismissed. Nothing became of it. I think on one occasion they sent an officer over. But we`ve got to remember, the estranged husband is a sergeant with the police department.

GRACE: Now, what am I supposed to remember about that, that you can`t have a domestic if you`re a police officer?

PARTIN: I think that you can, but I think in some cases -- this is a very small town. And from what I`ve been told, that a lot of this was kind of swept under the rug, and, you know, they would send an officer over, and he would kind of talk to Sergeant Parker, and that would be the end of it...


AND THEN - there is Theresa's loving cousin:

...On the 24th day of Theresa Parker's disappearance, her cousin Carl Cordell is still out early on his horse, looking for her. "I went on the mountains, back around the hills, went everywhere and I just don't know where she's at"... Cordell has known Parker his entire life and says she's like a sister... "Till she comes up missing... till she comes us dead... I'll keep looking for her till the day i die," Cordell says...

PRAY FOR EVERYBODY INVOLVED -
BOTH FAMILIES,
FRIENDS,
LAW ENFORCEMENT COLLEAGUES FROM THE DIFFERENT AGENCIES -

ALL OF THEM!

    ...Parker is still the only person of interest in the case of the missing 911 dispatcher.... Chief Tommy Freeman tells Newschannel 9... "He's told a lot of people that he could kill someone and they wouldn't know where to find them. I don't know what to do, I don't know where to look"...
