Bounty Hunter Challenges Merimon Suspect to Lie Detector Test

The suspect in the disappearance of Peggy Merimon is now being called upon to take a lie detector test. 

"I'm offering to foot the expenses of whatever it takes to get to the bottom of the truth and find out where Peggy Merimon is," said Gary Pringle, a bounty hunter heading up the search for Peggy Merimon.

Pringle issued that challenge Tuesday morning at the Lubbock County Courthouse. After searching for more than a year, he says it's time to bring Peggy home. Pringle says he'll pay for a polygraph, or anything else, that is needed to find Peggy.

"I've been advised that I'm wasting my time," Pringle says. "Everybody tells me that I should not be doing this, but I have observed what this had done to the family of Peggy Merimon. I have observed what this has done to Gearl, and to put it bluntly, I'm tired of it."

Merimon disappeared August 9, 2006 from the Lubbock State School, along with co-worker Kay Harrelson. Searchers found Harrelson's body near Shallowater days later, but Merimon is still missing.

A suspect in this case was recently terminated from the Lubbock State School, after spending more than a year on paid administrative leave.

If you know anything about the whereabouts of Peggy Merimon, give Crime Line a call at (806) 741-1000.

Another search will be held this Saturday morning at 8:30 a.m., and volunteers are needed.

If you can help, meet Pringle and his team at the Valero Fast Stop, at the corner of Clovis and Frankford.
