Missing Trio

Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

Quote

On the morning of Dec. 23, 1974, three girls from three different families set out on a shopping trip to the then-rather glitzy Seminary South Shopping Center in south Fort Worth. They were supposed to be home by 4 p.m. - but they never returned.

Rachel Arnold Trlica, 17, picked up her friend Renee Wilson, 14, and when little Julie Ann Moseley, who lived across the street from Renee's grandmother, begged to go along, the older girls said she'd have to get permission.

Julie Ann was only 9 that morning and simply didn't want to spend the day alone. She persuaded her mother to let her go.

The mystery surrounding their disappearance continues to confound law enforcement officials while it haunts and tangles the lives of all the families involved. For some, time stopped that December day. For others, the tragedy created a seedbed of suspicion that now divides a sister from a brother and a mother from a son. It is a chasm no bridge can span, a riddle with no answers; it is a constant grieving.

Just after the disappearance, the families walked creek beds and country roads looking for their missing children. Psychics and pranksters called. Private investigators poked into the case. The police chased a hundred empty leads.

Bella in the Wych Elm

Posted Image

Quote

Situated just off the Kidderminster to Birmingham Road, in the English Midlands, Hagley Wood is part of the Hagley Hall estate belonging to Lord Cobham. By day it is a beautiful if lonely spot, at night, however, engulfed in the ghostly shadows of the Clent Hills, the atmosphere is somewhat eerie. The place supposedly has a reputation for strange events, and perhaps none were stranger than what transpired there one sunny April day more than 60 years ago.

On 18 April, 1943, four teenage boys from nearby Stourbridge, Robert Hart, Thomas Willetts, Bob Farmer and Fred Payne, were in the woods poaching. They came upon an old hollow elm tree  (which has been mistakenly called a wych-elm down the years) and decided it would be an ideal place to search for birds’ nests. Bob Farmer attempted to clamber up into the tree, but as he glanced down inside the hollow trunk he suddenly saw the empty eye-sockets of a whitened skull, staring up at him from among the twisted branches.

At first he didn’t realise what he was looking at and thought it must belong to an animal. But as he pulled the skull out from the gnarled branches and saw a small patch of rotting flesh on the forehead, the remains of some hair, and crooked front teeth, he realised what he’d found. Horrified at the discovery and knowing they were in the woods illegally, the boys decided not to tell anyone about it. They put the skull back in the tree and quickly made their way home.

But the youngest boy, Tommy Willetts, felt uncomfortable about keeping such a secret and decided to tell his father what they’d found. Naturally his father then told the Worcestershire County Police Force, who went to the site the following morning. Inside and around the old tree they found not only the human skull, but an almost complete skeleton, a crêpe-soled shoe and some fragments of rotted clothing. During a careful search of the surrounding undergrowth a severed hand from the body was also discovered buried nearby.

The Dyatlov Pass incident

Quote

The Dyatlov Pass incident refers to an event that resulted in the deaths of nine ski hikers in the northern Ural mountains on the night of February 2, 1959. It happened on the east shoulder of the mountain Kholat Syakhl (Холат Сяхл) (a Mansi name, meaning Mountain of the Dead). The mountain pass where the incident occurred has since been named Dyatlov Pass (Перевал Дятлова) after the group's leader, Igor Dyatlov (Игорь Дятлов). The lack of eyewitnesses has inspired much speculation. Soviet investigators determined only that "a compelling unknown force" had caused the deaths. Access to the area was barred for skiers and other adventurers for three years after the incident.[1] The chronology of the incident remains unclear due to the lack of survivors.[2][3]

Investigators at the time determined that the hikers tore open their tent from within, departing barefoot into heavy snow and a temperature of −30C. Though the corpses showed no signs of struggle, two victims had fractured skulls, two had broken ribs, and one was missing her tongue.[1] Their clothing, when tested, was found to be highly radioactive.

Quote

A legal inquest had been started immediately after finding the first five bodies. A medical examination found no injuries which might have led to their deaths, and it was concluded that they had all died of hypothermia. One person had a small crack in his skull, but it was not thought to be a fatal wound.

An examination of the four bodies which were found in May changed the picture. Three of them had fatal injuries: the body of Thibeaux-Brignolle had major skull damage, and both Dubunina and Zolotarev had major chest fractures. According to Dr. Boris Vozrozhdenny, the force required to cause such damage would have been extremely high. He compared it to the force of a car crash. Notably, the bodies had no external wounds, as if they were crippled by a high level of pressure. One woman was found to be missing her tongue.[1] There had initially been some speculation that the indigenous Mansi people might have attacked and murdered the group for encroaching upon their lands, but investigation indicated that the nature of their deaths did not support this thesis; the hikers' footprints alone were visible, and they showed no sign of hand-to-hand struggle.

Thanks for sharing the missing persons cases, MC. Fascinating. :tu:

I have started a lot of threads about missing people, but I had never heard of these cases before. :)

I recently bought a book about missing persons, "Among the missing", a classic. Basically it's an encyclopedia of missing persons, from 1800 to 1975, very interesting book.

The Dyatlov incident is another fascinating mystery. A thread was started about it in 2010, it's 12 pages long. Enjoy ! [Merged] Dyatlov Pass incident

It is a very interesting subject. I had an incident happen when I was a child and the answer was never found. I was only about 6 years old or so when I listened to a story that my dad was telling my mom at the supper table one night. He said that his friend at work was standing in his yard one day with his wife and saying good by to her as she was getting ready to go somewhere on the Greyhound bus to visit who ever. (this was in 1965 or so and I was young so bear with me!) My dad said that he guy was waving goodbye to his wife as she walked down the road. He said that he saw something like a heat wave coming off the road way and to his surprise his wife just vanished. He thought that she had just gotten to far down the road for him to see her clearly but it was weird that he took his eyes off of her for a split second and she was gone. He never saw her again. She never got on the bus and never to her destination. My mom and dad talked about it for quite a while. Mom told about a story she heard when she was young about a man who was in his field while the man from the bank came out to see him. As the bank man was talking to the guys wife he was walking in from the field when he just vanished before their eyes. They ran to the spot where he had been standing and there was no evidence as to his where a bouts, he just vanished into thin air.

I would love to study up on those cases, so much mystery as to what could have happened to them. The first two missing persons at the beginning of this thread, well it looks like those are really not that mysterious as to me it looks like they were both abducted and possibly murdered. I am more interested in the ones that really disappear into thin air. There are not very many of them but they are interesting none the less. Good subject though, I could read these stories all the time. I will be looking for that book too. Does the book have all the police reports and as much information to draw a reasonable conclusion as to what happened to the people? One last question, who is the author? I will be looking for that book, it sounds like a good read. Thanks and have a good day!!

Hi Rocketgirl. :)

The book doesn't have the police reports, but there's a lot of informations about all the cases. The book features a lot of stories of child who were kidnapped, people who disappeared because of "Unexplained" phenomena ( Bermuda Triangle, cases of people vanishing in front of other people, etc. ), murderers who disappeared forever, and a lot more. There's also stories of people who disappeared for years ( sometimes even decades ) who then reappeared suddenly, stories of people who faked their own disappearances, and more. Very fascinating read. :)

The author is Robert Jay Nash. This is the best book he ever wrote. Most of the book he wrote have false informations in them, but "Among the Missing" is regarded as being his best book, all the infos are correct and the cases are well researched.

Plenty of copies are available on Amazon, from independent sellers. I bought my copy for 3$, in great condition. Enjoy !

The Man with the Hammer


Quote

Imagine, for a moment, you are a man coming home from work. The elevated train hurdles to your stop outside the city. You exit. It is an unusually hot June day, just one day after the official start of summer and already in the mid-90s. This is Chicago. By August the heat will seem oppressive. For now, it feels new. Sprinklers shoot water across front yards. Lifeguards whistle at the mob of kids jumping into the pool at Rehm park. Its 5:30 p.m., and the smell of barbeque fills the air.

You walk a few blocks south on Harvey Avenue. It is a habit, this route home, but you are not a boring man. In fact, you are described as an independent thinker, entertaining, charismatic. You are an esteemed history professor who has hit his stride. You have recently published an award-winning book. A long-time bachelor, you are, at 42, now married and the father of a baby girl. Life is more than good. You are two blocks from home.

A car pulls up to the curb beside you and a stranger gets out. The stranger burns with rage. At what in particular it is not known, but one suspects he feels none of the good luck you do. He does not know that you are considered kind, giving and compassionate. All he sees is a man with a briefcase going home to a loving family on a summer day. He does not have a briefcase or a loving family, and this day is just another steaming afternoon in a long blur of uncomfortable days. The stranger wants to unleash his rage. Words wont do. No one listens to him anyway. He comes at you. He raises a hammer and brings it down on your head.

Unidentified White Female

  • Located on December 20, 1976 in White Haven, Carbon County, Pennsylvania.
    
  • Estimated Date of Death: Less than 24 hours
    
  • Cause of Death: Strangled & shot in the neck
    
  • State of Remains: Dismembered

Case History

On December 20, 1976, the dismembered remains of the victim were found in three suitcases along the Lehigh River in Carbon County, Pennsylvania, under a bridge of westbound Interstate Route 80.

She had been strangled, then shot in the neck and then dismembered with a fine, serrated tool. Her killer had removed her nose, ears, and breasts.
It was determined that she had been dead less than 24 hours from the date she was found.

There were letters and numbers written on the left hand of the victim in ink (color of ink unknown). While there were different interpretations of what was actually written on the hand, almost definitely was WSR. Next to that was either a 4 or a 5. Below and to the right was either a 4 or 7. Police checked license plates and CB call signs but were unable to determine the significance of the notations. The ink would probably have lasted 8-12 hours.

The three suitcases the remains were found in were all the same size (23" x 14" x 7 1/2"). Two of them were blue in color, one was blue and tan plaid. The handles had been cut off of the suitcases before they were dropped at the site and the zippers had been painted with flat black paint.

Inside the suitcases, the police also found straw, dry packing foam, a cut up chenille bedspread and six sections of the New York Sunday News dated September 26, 1976. The bedspread was most likely originally pink in color, however, the worn and dirty condition made it appear more rust or coral colored. The bedspread had an embroidered yellow flower design.

Facial features such as the nose and the hair style are an artist's estimation to complete the image.

HAROLD “BUDDY” EUGENE VEST
Posted Image

Quote

On June 28, 1946, Harold Eugene “Buddy” Vest, age 25, was found murdered in his cabinet
shop in Gainesville, Texas. Buddy was interrogated and tortured, resulting in his death.

Buddy had just been honorably discharged the previous January from the Army, having served in the European Theatre of Operations with the 711th Engineer Base Depot Company, the 38th Engineer General Services Regiment, and the 70th Engineer Light Pontoon Company. Before going overseas, he was stationed at Camp Custer, Michigan. Buddy’s survivors included his wife and infant son, both of whom are still living.

A local newspaper reported that Aviation Electronics Mate First Class James Louis Casey was seen just outside Buddy’s cabinet shop when his body was discovered around midnight. Records indicate that Casey had just signed out for leave from Ward Island, Corpus Christi Naval Air Station at 9:00 AM that morning (27 June 1946). Casey listed his leave contact address as 10714 ½ Victory Boulevard, North Hollywood California, c/o G.E. Rees, Jr. One week later, Casey reported to the infirmary at Saint Louis Naval Air Station with a fractured mandible (jaw). He was released one week later.
