The episode ‘American Monster: The Green Monster’ from Investigation Discovery records the appreciable work of police that eventually dug out the guilty for the murder as Gregg Myers. Continue reading to find out who Gregg Myers is and where he is now.
Who Is Gregg Myers?
It was on March 27, 2003, when four-year-old Dameon Huffman got up to see his great grandparents’ corpses in their bedroom. Shocked by this, the little kid ran nearly a mile and reached the daycare in a nearby church to inform anyone about the incident.
Post a 911 call, the police arrived at the farm and found the bodies in the bedroom. It appeared to them to be a point-blank shot, probably from a shotgun. However, no valuable objects were taken away from their house, and everything seemed to be in the right place. This cancels out the assumption of a dacoity.
But surprisingly, the police observed a basement window shit open and a shoeprint on it. Initially, the prime suspect, in this case, was taken to be Jack’s first son, Travis, solely due to his non-amicable relationship with the victim. Luckily for him, a valid alibi verified his presence elsewhere, and that checked him out of the suspects’ list.
Next came up a witness who brought valuable information that placed the victim’s younger son, Gregg, in the spotlight. Aged 25 at that time, Gregg was facing some financial trouble. He was on the verge of getting divorced and would’ve been soon evicted from his house.
The police learned that Gregg would own the farm when his parents died. With a strong motive present, the police began their search. They found a gift card used to buy shotgun ammunition, alongside a green tracksuit, matching shotgun ammo, and shoes with the same print found at the scene. The gun was found in a river nearby and traced back to Gregg when the dealer confirmed him as a buyer. Gregg was arrested and sent for trial.
Where Is Gregg Myers Now?
Gregg was spared the death penalty and was sentenced to life imprisonment. In 2006, Gregg appealed before the state SC after which his conviction was upheld. Currently, as per prison records, he’s incarcerated at the Marion Correctional Institution in Ohio.
