Case of American Falls man who disappeared 11-years-ago gets national attention

The unsolved disappearance case of Jeramy Burt, who grew up in American Falls and vanished 11 years ago this month, made national headlines this week in a cold case spotlight feature on NBC News Dateline’s website.

Jeramy’s case first garnered national attention when it was featured on an episode of “Disappeared” in 2010, a series broadcast on the Investigation Discovery network that documented missing persons cases.

His mother, Sheryl Burt, a former school bus driver in American Falls, told the Journal in 2014 that she believed her son was the victim of an act of revenge waged by his divorce attorney, Jeannie Braun, of Boise.

Story continues below video

Before a grand jury in 2004, Jeramy testified against Braun for illegal activity she was involved in. Jeramy had secretly taped conversations with Braun, his mother said.
