The two victims of a 32-year-old murder case will be the focus of a gathering tonight in central Iowa. For the third year in a row, family and friends of Steven Fisher and Melisa Gregory will gather in downtown Newton on the anniversary of their murders.
The pair were found beaten to death at the former Copper Dollar Ranch outside Newton the morning of March 3, 1983. The 20-year-old Fisher and 17-year-old Gregory were dating. Eleven days ago, Fisher’s estranged wife, Terri Supino, was acquitted of the murders by a jury in Black Hawk County. She was arrested exactly a year ago, hours before last year’s candlelight gathering.
Tonight’s vigil, from 6:00 to 7:30, was organized by members of Fisher’s family and Gregory’s sisters. It will be held on the south side of the Jasper County Courthouse in Newton.
