Christine Sheddy Murder: Sources To”It’s Her”



Snow Hill, MD– Although officially unconfirmed, sources inside the investigation tell that the female remains located on the rear property of the Riverside Inn Bed and Breakfast, are that of 26 year old missing Delaware woman Christine Sheddy.

Christine, Mother of 3, was last seen alive the evening of November 12, 2007 on the Byrd Rd farm property in Pocomoke City, MD.

Justice, Interrupted : A Mother’s Fight

chrisandkidscar1 was asked to investigate the disappearance of Christine Sheddy by Christine’s Mother, Lynn Dodenhoff, and members of her family and friends last Summer.

With the exception of a few outdated news articles and some good work by the folks at the Pocomoke Tattler,  we had to start from scratch. Yes, it is as hard as it sounds save for the fact that our initial primary source of information came from the one woman that vowed to bring her daughter home: her Mom.

This most tenacious woman did more investigative work on her daughter’s disappearance than the detectives tasked with finding her. In fact, one of the primary witnesses in this case was not interviewed until Fall of last year after I interviewed him twice and our series on Christine was on it’s fifth chapter.

At the request of the Maryland State Police and the Doddenhoff  and Sheddy families, the blinkoncrime team will be limiting coverage regarding the actual facts of the internal investigation of Christine’s case as it is continuing.

Joel Todd, Worcester State Attorney, disclosed that a tip led investigators to the scene as part of a “larger investigation.” Through the good work of a special investigator from Todds’ office and that of the Maryland State Police, who received Christine’s case less than a week ago, it seems that Christine and her family’s quest for answers surrounding her disappearance and murder will be forthcoming.

Christine Sheddy Case: Clarence Jackson Arrested For ARSON- In Tennessee

Rogersville, TN– Clarence Butch “Jr” Jackson, believed to be a person of interest in the disappearance and murder of Christine Marie Sheddy has been arrested for aggravated burglary and arson in Hawkins County, TN.

At the former residence of a girlfriend of Jackson, 166 E. Madeline Lane, a witness identified Jackson as the man who broke into the home using a rock to break the glass of the door, and proceeded to light the shower curtain on fire.

While there was no one inside the home during the burglary, the tenant was in the process of removing her things due to an eviction.

Jr. Jackson and his girlfriend Tia Johnson were tenants in a farmhouse at 2911 Byrd Rd, Pocomoke City from September through November 2007 where multiple unexplained fires occurred, with no arrests to date.

As previously chronicled exclusievely at, it is believed 26 year old Christine Sheddy, mother of three from Delaware, was murdered on that farm the evening of November 12, 2007.

The investigation into her disappearance is ongoing.

Please call Worcester County Bureau of Investigation if you have any information regarding the disappearance of Christine Sheddy (410) 352–3476.

Christine Sheddy Case: Did Arson Play A Role In Her Murder ?

Pocomoke City, MD– Christine Sheddy was murdered on the Byrd Rd Farm in Pocomoke City on the evening of November 12, 2007.

The series of events that led up to her murder are stupifying.  

Of Particular concern is the rash of fires occuring on the farm and within surrounding areas in the time frame of both of Christine’s visits there.


As the September alarms are no longer accessible on the Pocomoke Volunteer Fire Department Site, you are looking at a cached version confirming the call to the farm and the fact that photos DID exist of what was assuredly a major fire. Three different stations responded at a minimum. The Images have been deleted.

The day before the Byrd road chicken house fire on September 20th, the Showell Fire Department extinguished this chicken house fire:


Also a cached version of deleted information from the PVFD site, is this October Alarm Source, through October 23rd, 2007:



Effective October 1, 2007 the Worcester County Fire Marshalls Office takes over.

“..The Worcester County Fire Marshal’s Office is responsible for conducting fire investigations of all fires in the County where arson is suspected, the fire is undetermined by the fire department, and/or an injury or death has occurred. The Worcester County Fire Marshal’s Office is the local enforcing agency for 3 municipalities and the County…”


Note the October 10th alarm for yet again, a subsequent fire in the chickenhouse on Byrd Road. 

On October 11, the neighbors who have already been vicitmized by the Clarence Butch “ Jr” Jackson crew, are victimized again. As you can see the Fire Marshall visits Byrd Road.

What the record does not say, is that the neighbors are awakened at 3 am by the Fire Marshall and Deputy Parnell from the PCPD. They were told if they called the Fire Department one more time for fires on the neighboring property, they would be arrested.

On the exact same day that JR Jackson unsuccessfully seeks peace orders against the neighbors that are simply trying to avoid the menace of his existance at this point are denied on October 13th; there is another chicken house fire. Fire Police and Pocomoke PD are in attendance.

Another outside fire call on October 17th. There is no data past October 23rd on fire activity available for this time frame. 

The November calls have been deleted entirely by the Pocomake VFD. The site is managed and maintained by “Choppy Layton” a long time Vounteer Fire Fighter and by all accounts, a solid guy. 

What is astounding, is that I am in receipt of an email that confirms a witness gave a statement to Detective Trautman, the original detective in this case, on February 12, 2008.

Should we consider it a coincidence then, that the last time the PVFD site is updated, and apparently when the November alarms were deleted is February 12, 2008?


We have eyewitness accounts of fires on the Byrd Road farmhouse from November 9th through the 13th at a minimum. Fire Police and Marshalls have been to the property.  By my accounting, we are talking in the neighborhood of 12 fire alarms to this property alone, starting one month after an emergency outdoor burn ban.    

Why hasn’t Clarence Jackson been charged with arson?

Any other suspects? Dead Issue? We know there are surveillance still pictures and security guard witnesses, what did they see?

What is the ratio of alarm calls versus arson arrests? 

I digress.

Who was copied on the confirmation email containing a witness statement on February 12, 2008?

Michael McDermott. 

Christine Sheddy Case: Is Their A Fox In the FireHall?

Pocomoke City, MD– One thing that has been bothering the team in Christine’s case, is that we hear about fire after fire that Clarence “JR” Jackson set, at the Byrd Road address. 

However, there are no incident reports that we know of, from witness accounts that the Pocomoke City Fire Department was called on November 9th at a minimum.

You will find fire fighter pictures and coverage from August 2007 on the site, followed by current footage. There are no pics or reports of the Byrd Rd address, although there are several witness accounts of multiple fires on the property, and of course the flue fire from November 9, 2007.



What is also not listed there, is the fact that James “Keven” Hall, the training OFFICER for Pocomoke City FD, is a registered violent sex offender.

Could he be related to Levi and Joyce Hall? Is that the reason that the searches on the property where the Pocomoke City FD were in attendance yielded nothing? It would seem finding her remains would yield heavy coverage. In turn, this information would have been discovered early.

What effect, if any, has this had on the Christine Sheddy case?


Editors Note 9/6/09:

I have re-read this article numerous times. How in the world any person could “take away” from it that my team or I, in any shape, form or fashion, have anything but the utmost respect for the thousands of men and women in this country that volunteer their time and risk their safety for ours is ludicrous. There is no such allegation or inference of any kind.

Anyone alleging that has their own agenda and it is painfully transparent to all.

For starters, I am the granddaughter of a United States Marine that fought valiantly in the 2 bloodiest battles in WWII who declined a full ride football scholarship to Duke for the privelege. I have nothing but respect and support for any public servant. To suggest otherwise when my Poppa has had such a profound effect on my life is an insult to his memory.

Secondly, a member of my team’s Father is a retired volunteer fire fighter with 25 years of service. She knows first hand what it’s like when Dad is called out right when dinner starts or when was mostly inconvenient. 

I watched both the WTC towers crumble from a hill in Boonton, NJ after being diverted on my way into the city for a meeting at a client who saw the first plane hit from her office window.  I will never in my life forget the smell in the air downtown a week later when my meeting was rescheduled.

I stopped at the corner where the National Guard was now positioned and bought a bouquet and went into the Ladder Company on Water St.

There were pictures of 9 Firefighters that were missing or dead. I hugged a man I never met and blubbered in front of a work associate. I hung their prayer book in my office. These people are Heroes.

H E R O E S.

The issue here is there are records that have been pulled from view intentionally, including pictures that encompass the time frame that a young mother of 3 was murdered on a farm that there were several alarms to. 

If someone does not see how this is relative to a murder investigation that occurred at the property, potentially by a person of interest who started the fires in the first place, I am at a loss.

The business at hand is finding Christine Sheddy.
