Missing since September 27, 1997 from Dallas, Dallas County, Texas
Classification: Endangered Missing


Vital Statistics


Circumstances of Disappearance
Demetrius Jermain Elder was last seen at 1303 Dryden Avenue in Dallas, Texas on September 27, 1997. He had $30,000 from a settlement he received for growing up around lead contamination from a West Dallas smelter.
Family believes he was robbed and murdered, probably by someone he knew and trusted for his money that he was keeping inside his house.
A few years later his brother received a phone call saying, “You're going to end up dead just like your brother if you keep messing with my business." Police are sure foul play was involved.
