August 9, 1987


Bertha Mae Foy was killed in Fort Dodge, Iowa, on August 9, 1987. The young mother left behind three small children, ages 3, 2, and a 9-month-old baby.

Two men were questioned in Foy’s murder but no one was ever charged.

A source close to the family said one of the men still lives in Fort Dodge and owns a local business. Foy’s family members come in contact with him on a regular basis, and the question is always there, lingering and unanswered: Was he responsible for her death?

    Anyone ever question Sessions Harper? I know he was in on a law suit with Bertha. He has a history of violence and murder. Any connection between Angela Altman’s murder and hers? I know the Foy family has a history of murder and violence so could it be connected to illegal activity? She clearly had run in’s with the law since she was involved with the juvenile court system.
