This investigation began on January 21, 2018, when Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Deputies and Detectives responded to the home of Jerry and Susan McFalls in Littlefield, AZ after the couple was reported missing by family members. At the home, deputies located the victims’ phones, guns, money, medications, identifications, and family pets inside the residence. The missing couple was last heard from on January 11, 2018.

Over the next several months several interviews were conducted with persons of interest and potential witnesses. Ongoing searches were conducted by law enforcement with the assistance of many concerned citizens. Based on information gathered, multiple search warrants were executed. Items of potential evidentiary value were collected and sent to the FBI Crime Lab for analysis.

On October 15, 2018, Deputies and Detectives responded to a desert area near the Virgin River Gorge, where two sets of human remains were located in a shallow grave. Susan McFalls was positively identified on October 18, 2018, by comparing medical records and a medical device located along with the remains. Jerry McFalls Sr. was positively identified on January 30, 2020, using DNA analysis.

The case remained active, and a lead was discovered. Kenneth Gene Snyder, 57 of Littlefield, Az was identified as a suspect. Detectives conducted follow-up interviews with neighbors and acquaintances. As a result, a witness was identified who alleged that Kenneth Snyder had shot and killed the McFalls.

The witness gave extensive details into the night of the McFalls’ death, claiming that Jerry McFalls and Kenneth Snyder had gotten into a verbal altercation after Jerry approached Snyder’s residence. The altercation escalated resulting in Snyder shooting Jerry, then Susan, and removing their bodies from the property. Snyder allegedly threatened to kill the witness if they called law enforcement. Detectives followed up on the new information, executing search warrants and collecting evidence to substantiate the claim. Investigators have determined that Kenneth Gene Snyder was responsible for the death of Jerry and Susan McFalls.

Suspect Kenneth Gene Snyder had since been shot and killed during the commission of a domestic violence assault on his property on June 1, 2023. With Snyder being deceased, no arrest can be made in reference to his involvement in the murder of Jerry and Susan McFalls.
