This month marks the twenty three year anniversary of the murder of Mary Ellen Wise of Vero Beach Florida.  Mary Ellen Wise was only 39-years old when she was abducted from her Vero Beach home on November 2, 1992.  The killer forced Mary Ellen Wise to drive to a Melbourne bank that morning and then to a Vero Beach bank that early afternoon to withdraw money.  After Wise withdrew her funds she was taken to a remote area in Saint Lucie County and was brutally murdered.  Mary Ellen Wise body was found in an area known as “Peanut Lake” which is located near Angle Road, west of Kings Highway.  The killer then drove Wise’s Red 1990 Honda CRX to the area of Indian River Drive and Seaway Drive in Fort Pierce Florida.  The vehicle was left abandoned in the parking lot at this location which at that time was the Ramp Raw Bar Restaurant (now 12A Buoy Restaurant).  It is believed the killer used a pay phone in this area or the restaurant phone to call for a ride.  It is also possible that someone unknowing gave the killer a ride from this location on November 2, 1992. Below is a picture of the victim’s actual vehicle and location where it was abandoned in the parking lot.  The front license plate on the vehicle read “Mary Ellen’s Toy”.  Twenty Three years later the family and friends of Mary Ellen Wise have not lost hope and are pleading for someone with any information in this case to contact Detective Greg Farless with the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office (772) 321-0784 or the Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers.

Click to Enlarge

> Armed carjacking leads to shots fired at deputy 
> Media release: June 11, 2015 
> In the evening hours of Wednesday, June 10th, a husband and wife traveled to Szechuan Palace restaurant, 1965 43rd Avenue, in Vero Beach to pick up a take out order of food. As the female entered the restaurant, two black male subjects approached the husband in the waiting vehicle. They produced a gun and demanded his vehicle from him. At 9:06 P.M. the Indian River County Sheriff`s Office received a 9-1-1 call regarding this armed carjacking. Deputies immediately responded to the scene and issued a Be On the Look Out (BOLO) for the couple`s vehicle. 
> Within ten minutes, the vehicle was spotted by an Indian River County Sheriff`s Deputy in the 1400 block of 16th Avenue. As he turned around to approach the vehicle, it traveled east on 14th Street where the two occupants jumped out of the moving vehicle. The deputy observed one of the black male subjects produce a handgun and fire three rounds in the direction of his moving patrol car. The deputy took a position of cover and began calling for other units. The stolen vehicle struck a nearby tree on the property of a residence. The deputy was not in a position to return fire. 
> Spent shell casings were located at the scene along with other evidence that will lead today`s investigation. Indian River County Sheriff Deryl Loar stated, "We are glad none of our deputies were hurt last night trying to apprehend these dangerous men. Today we will focus our efforts on identifying them and putting them behind bars. Our team of patrol, canine, and aviation, in concert with the Vero Beach Police Department worked tirelessly to provide the best possible search for these two men and to be sure that they were no longer an immediate threat to the residents of that area." The suspects are described only as being younger black males last seen wearing long shorts and dark hoodies. Crime scene detectives will process the stolen vehicle today along with other forensic evidence recovered at the scene. 
> Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to contactTreasure Coast Crime Stoppers at 1-800- 273- TIPS (8477). You can remain anonymous and possibly be eligible for a reward of up to$1,000.00. Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers can also be found online .
