Deirdre Smith

Deirdre Smith was a 27-year-old woman who was strangled to death by 28-year-old Jerry Lee Dunbar in his room at the Alexandria Motel in Alexandria in April 1989.

Dunbar then hid Smith's corpse under the floorboards of the room, where it was discovered on May 21, 1989, following complaints by subsequent guests of odors in the room.[1]
