Interesting side story to this vacant commercial building — the owner of the insurance agency, Lee Drury Gerhold, who owned several locations operating as “Mr. Lee’s Insurance Agency” around town, was convicted and sentenced to fifty years in prison for his part in a murder-for-hire scheme. His first wife was murdered in 1968 — as part of the scheme, and he also tried to have this third wife murdered, in the 1980s. His second wife died of natural causes in the 1970s.
