Ten years before the horrific terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, Nancy Wilder Trapp, a surgical service manager at St. Thomas DeKalb, experienced a tragedy that would shake the foundations of her soul. On Sept. 11, 1991, Trapp’s brother-in-law, Jerry McLemore, murdered her sister in a plot that her husband, Jimbo Perkins, “accidentally helped” plan. “They were sitting around the deer camp … drinking beer and running through scenarios of how would be the best way to get rid of their wives,” Trapp remembered. “My husband also [later] said, ‘I thought we were joking around, doing the good ole-boy thing.’ He never realized until the pieces started falling together of how he (McLemore) killed her that it was one of the scenarios.”
