Johnny Wright

Johnny Wright dropped out of sight after Doisy’s disappearance. But he turned up a few days later in St. Louis, Missouri. He was 32 years old in 1976. He had an arrest record for a dozen crimes including rape, burglary, assault and drug possession. Investigators believe he was responsible for at least four rapes in the Columbia area. He was interviewed by police and given a lie detector test. He failed it.

In November 1985, authorities issued a warrant for Wright’s arrest for second-degree murder. They did this on the strength of a statement from Wright’s former roommate, Harry Moore. Moore said Wright had showed him Doisy’s body. It was covered by a blanket and stuffed in the back of Wright’s blue 1972 Toyota. He said that Wright told him he’d “offed” her.

Doisy’s body has never been found. Moore was initially charged as an accessory in Doisy’s murder. But the charge was dropped after he gave his statement.

Wright’s whereabouts were unknown at the time the warrant was issued. He remained a fugitive until September 2009, when he was arrested in Lawrenceville, Georgia. He was caught after he asked the police to perform a criminal background check on him so he could apply for a job.

In the intervening years between the time he left Missouri and the time of his arrest, Wright lived in Washington state, Texas and Georgia, married and raised a family.

He used the name Errol Rodney Edwards and had a driver’s license under that name. In Georgia in 2007, his license was canceled because the name did not match the Social Security number. He eventually got a new license under his real name.

No-Body Murder Conviction

Although Johnny Wright’s defense argued that the case against him was circumstantial and weak, he was convicted of Doisy’s murder in January 2010 and sentenced to the maximum of 30 years in prison. He died of natural causes in January 2015, still incarcerated.

Rebecca A Doisy graduated from Kirkwood High School. She completed three years of a bachelor’s degree in education at the University of Missouri before she decided to drop out and work.
