Sherre was strangled and drowned in her bathtub by her husband. He tried to disguise her death as a suicide, complete with forged suicide notes that claimed she was tired of being in pain. He nearly succeeded, but was arrested five years after Sherre died because samples taken from her fingernails contained his DNA.
