Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this.

  1. That’s so very sad that he would do that now her son has no mother.

  2. I don’t think she has a son. She only had one child with Richard, a daughter.

    • Charity,

      Leeman Jarvis was Deborah’s father-in-law. Richard Jarvis was Deborah’s estranged husband. When I referred to “his son”, I meant Leeman’s son Richard. Sorry to be confusing.

      • you said “her son has no mother” not “his son has no father”…

      • Charity is right, you’re wrong. The couple had one daughter, there was no son left without a mother in this story. Unfortunately the daughter is in denial and believes the killer is still out there. Thankfully her sob grandfather and father are both dead and in hell now.

  3. I met Debbie Meissner in high school. We were in the same graduating class- Irvington High, class of 1968. We were good friends in and outside of school. We lost touch when I went away to college. I often wondered about her, and was shocked to hear of her death at the hands of her father-in-law. I have a daughter who is one year younger than Debbie’s daughter Katie. I wish there was some way I could locate her, as I have some photographs of her mom that I would love to share with her and Debbie’s siblings.

  4. Agreed, they have no Son, they have a Daughter

  5. I’ve heard on an I.D.Discovery tv show EVIL-IN-LAW, that her child,
    her loving daughter still believe the grand-dad did not do it. Her father died a year or so after her grand-dad who died in prison. This is so sad.

    Sad all around. May Debbie continue rip and continue to live through the beautiful and the pure sweet memories of her loving sweet daughter loving brother Tony, the sister and everyone who truly care/and love Debbie
