Details of Disappearance Cheryl was last seen leaving her part-time job at the Village Center Pharmacy in Glendale Heights, Illinois on December 31, 1992. She was en route to collect $200 in child support from her estranged husband of seven years, Garry F. Huff, at his rented room in the 700 block of Leslie Lane. A photo of Garry is with below this case summary.
On the evening of her disappearance, she was supposed to get the money and then pick up the children and take them to a New Years' party at a friend's home. She never collected her children, however, and has never been heard from again.
Two days later, Cheryl's gray 1991 Chevrolet Corsica was found abandoned near the apartment where she had planned to attend the party.
The contents of the garbage bin were later taken to a landfill; investigators don't believe Cheryl's remains are recoverable. Three teeth and some bone fragments were located at the dump site in St. Charles, however, and a small piece of human tissue inside the barrel matched Cheryl's DNA.
Garry's roommate stated Garry had said several times that he wanted to kill his wife and burn her body. In his confession, Garry said he got angry over how Cheryl planned to spend the child support money, and demanded that she give it back. She refused, and he shot her multiple times: once in the chest, twice in the face and one in the back of the head.
Cheryl's parents adopted the couple's children after Garry's sentencing. She has never been found, but foul play is suspected in her case due to the circumstances involved.
