Jeepers Creepers Movie Inspiration - Dennis Depue

On Easter Sunday of 1990 Dennis Depue arrived to pick up his children from the home of his ex-wife Marilynn. Dennis and Marilynn got into a fight and eventually Dennis pushed Marilynn down the stairs. He beat her up and then told the kids he was taking her to the hospital.

He never made it to the hospital instead he ended up at an abandoned schoolhouse in Coldwater, Michigan where he dumped her body. When the movie Jeepers Creepers came out more than a decade later it was obvious the murder of Marilynn Depue was used as an inspiration for the film.
