Graceland blues

Philip Snider has told police that he “put her with nature” – the ‘her’ being his wife, Roberta, who was then aged 70.

He says she died of natural causes on a trip to Graceland, Tennessee, and that he threw Roberta off a bridge on I-90.

His story has changed somewhat. First of all he told police investigating her disappearance that she died in Memphis, and that an emergency services vehicle took her away to an unknown location.

Police checked the records of the emergency services in Memphis and found no evidence that Roberta – dead or alive – had been carted away. They are still looking for Roberta.
