Terry Jo Duperrault was just your average 11 year old girl when she set off with her family on a nice vacation to the Bahamas. However all it took was one night for all that to change and for the worse. This is the tragic story of the terrible ordeal that young Terry experienced all those years ago.
1961 was the year a freighter boat sailed through the Bahamas. Sounds normal, until the crew stumbles upon a most peculiar and bone chilling discovery. Adrift at sea, on a small cork float, is a young, scared, and seemingly dead girl. Which begs the question, how did this little girl get there?
Terry Jo’s dad was 41 year old Dr. Arthur Duperrault, an eye doctor from Green Bay, Wisconsin. He and his wife, Jean, spent years saving up money so that they could take the ultimate family trip, from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to the Bahamas. Terry’s older brother, Brian (14), and her younger sister, Renee (7), were all aboard the Bluebelle, a ship the family charted. What started off as a once in a lifetime trip quickly turned into tragedy.
