Fraud, forgery, perjury added to sudden death – no investigation

Ray in Air ForceRaymond Marc Zachry lived a normal, active life for 47 years.  He graduated school, joined Air Force, served his four-year enlistment and returned to his home in Perryville, Md.

Ray worked for American Color Graphics in Belcamp, MD as a press operator for 18 years. He loved his dogs, two Rottweilers and a Bouvier that passed on to doggie heaven.  He loved his home in Conowingo, MD and maintained it as a “park like” setting  a neighbor said, on the rolling hills near the Conowingo Dam.

Ray married his sweetheart when he returned from the Air force and they worked together to accumulate all the fun things young professionals without children can afford.  They had a good life until 2001 when they separated.  Ray stayed single until 2006.  He met a woman from Pennsylvania in late 2004 who was a school teacher.  They dated and married in 2006.

Soon after Ray and his new wife found new positions in Montgomery County Pennsylvania, they bought a house in Souderton, PA  they planned to use as their base for work and keep Ray’s home in Conowingo and returned  “home”on weekends and days off.

Ray and his wife of 18 months, Darlene signed closing documents on the Pennsylvania house on May 25, 2007 and moved some furnishings there over Memorial Day weekend. Ray started work at his new position with Vertis Communication Company in April.  Darlene continued as vice principal of a Charter School, Center For Student Learning nearby in Fairless Hills.  She was to begin work in the special education department of Pennridge High School – but records indicate she did not begin there until October 2007.

September 25, 2007, exactly 4 months from closing on the house, Ray was discovered by a neighbor, lying beside his truck “as if he was attempting to get into his truck”.  She and another neighbor called emergency responders.  Souderton police responded, they found Ray, “cool to the touch, and without pulse” .

The police report states UNATTENDED DEATH, and six sentences of explanation.  The case was closed in 1.5 hours.  No investigation into cause of death.

The family found it hard to comprehend, but thought someone would explain the details when his Mother and step father arrived in Maryland from Florida. His sister, Katharine Mackie, lives in Maryland, she also was not allowed any information regarding the circumstances that caused her brother’s death.

It will soon be five years of searching, court appearances due to forgery, insurance fraud and conspiracy by the widow Darlene Miller Zachry.

The Souderton police report, the forged will and arrest records of the widow Darlene Zachry (a/k/a Zachery), her sister Annetta Frackmen and the married couple who claimed to be “like a brother” friends of Ray are posted at

    You are amazing how you write as if a journalist – without passion, stating facts – yet this was your son.

    I am overwhelmed and awed, at what lack of closure you, let alone his sister, must have had.

    From what I’ve read since, about that chemical ingredient (omg, I’ve forgotten it – was it Barium?) – there is no doubt in my mind, an ‘unattended death’ is an unexplained death, and needs to be explained.

    You are a most valiant mother.



    • Thank you so much for reading and commenting to these posts.

      The WordPress and Facebook friends have been so encouraging and supportive. That gives me the courage to go on when I really want to give up some days.

      Yes, barium was the largest quantity 1950mg/L and selenium at a much less quantity, however there and should not be in one’s system.

      I have a web site where I post more on Ray’s story and a video by a Baltimore County homicide detective who also found these circumstances most curious.

      Thank you my friend, and God bless you

  13. How can any state DA change a criminal charge of forgery, fraud and perjury to a civil case?
    Why would this same DA not notify the victim of this change?
    Why didn’t the DA notify the victim prior to releasing the perpetrators?
