Memphis Billionaire heiress remains missing, kidnapping suspect arrested

The Memphis mom who was abducted while on a jog last week is reportedly an heiress to a private hardware company that her prominent Tennessee family founded. Eliza Fletcher, 34, went missing on Friday morning at 4:30 a.m. at the 3800 Block of Central Ave. in Memphis, Tennessee and was forcefully taken into a GMC Terrain, according to police, who say that there was a struggle. Fletcher’s late grandfather was Joseph "Joe" Orgill III, who ran Orgill Inc., a hardware supply company that Forbes ranked last year as the nation’s largest independent distributor of hardware and home improvement tools. Forbes listed the company as the 143rd largest private company in the country, pulling in $3.2 billion in revenue in 2021.
