Throughout her life, Margarett Terry had known heartache all too well.
She’s lost her only son when the boy was just 4 years old.
Her only daughter, a mother of two, would die at age 25 after a devastating wreck left her virtually bedridden for four years.
Never miss a local story.
Less than 10 years later, she’d find herself a widow.
If life was fair, Terry would have passed away peacefully.
Instead, the 68-year-old grandmother was sexually assaulted and slain inside her southeast Fort Worth home — a 28-year-old murder mystery that still remains unsolved.
“She had so much heartache, it’s just like why?” asked her granddaughter, Renee Roach. “How could somebody go through all of that and then ... die the way she died? It doesn’t seem right.”
