04/04/09: Jesse Archer, 33, Green Bay, WI

On Friday, April 24, 2009, a passerby spotted the body of 33-year-old Jesse James Archer at about 3:10 p.m. in the Fox River near the coal piles south of the Don A. Tilleman Bridge on Mason Street [also reported as the Walnut Street Bridge] in Green Bay, WI. The location was not far from Pearl Street.

Archer had been missing since April 4.

Recovery and Findings

The Green Bay Fire Department water rescue team used an inflatable boat to bring the body ashore at the Leicht Memorial Park boat dock, just north of the Ray Nitschke Memorial Bridge about an hour after it was first reported.

Brown County medical examiner Al Klimek said the body was identified as Jesse Archer right away because of his tattoos. Klimek said the body was probably in the river several weeks and might have surfaced due to current changes caused by Friday's warm weather. He also told the Green Bay Press Gazette that there were no immediate reasons to suspect foul play, but he said the condition of the body would require additional time to finalize a cause of death.

An autopsy was planned Saturday (April 25).

Jesse disappeared on April 4, the day before college student Dan Zamlen disapppeared in neighboring Minnesota. His body was found on April 24,  the day before Jelani Brinson, another Minnesotan, was found).

About Jesse Archer

@ Dan in Detroit

I visited the forum you suggested and discoverd that all that stuff was nonsense. Just because you can make patterns with names doesn't mean it has any relevance with these cases.

Also, at least one person there told a person with the screenname of "Detroit Breakdown" to stop posting this crap on the Johnbenet Ramsey forum. "Detroit Breakdown" then tried to make it look like these deaths are connected to Johnbenet Ramsey's death, which it clearly is not.

On top of that, you give the name of a person you claim is "the killer", as well as list other names you claim are serial killers as well. This could open you up to a lawsuit.

You were not Jesse's wife. You guys never legally got married, just because he bought rings does not mean you are married. As far as his ring, it stayed on a chain around his neck.
