Select It Sunday: Kim Larrow

August 24, 2014

Selected by Andrea622, this week’s featured Sunday case is Kim Marie Larrow. She was fifteen and a half when she vanished from an ice cream parlor in Canton, Michigan in the summer of 1981. If still alive, she’d be 48 today.

Kim was going through a rebellious phase at the time of her disappearance; she frequently ran away and was involved in drugs. It’s possible she ran away when she went missing in June 1981, but if she did, 33 years is a VERY long time to stay hidden. I found a Detroit News article when implies a member of the family could have been involved in her disappearance, or at least, that she was neglected.

It seems likely that Kim met with foul play, though possibly not immediately after her disappearance. After all this time, I wonder if we’ll ever find out.

Erica Parsons’s parents charged with theft

July 30, 2014

The adoptive parents of missing teen Erica Parsons have been charged with a whopping SEVENTY-SIX counts of conspiracy, fraud and theft. The charges are sorta-kinda related to her disappearance: Sandy and Casey Parsons were getting money from the government for Erica’s care, and they didn’t report her missing or tell the state she was no longer living with them. They collected $12,000 in benefits after her disappearance:

According to the fraud indictment, from February 2010 to August 2013, Sandy Parsons, 40, and Casey Parsons, 39, committed tax fraud, mail fraud, theft of government funds, and identity theft, and engaged in a conspiracy to defraud the government.

The indictment alleges that the Parsons received government funded adoption assistance, Medicaid, Social Security, and Food and Nutrition Services benefits for a dependent that did not live with them and used the mail to commit the fraud.

The indictment also alleges that Casey Parsons fraudulently used the identities of other persons as dependents and used other false information when preparing federal tax returns.

It would appear they’re following the same plan prosecutors did in the Adam Herrman case, which I’ve written about many times — so many, in fact, that he has his own category on this blog.

Erica was reported missing a year ago today.

Make-a-List Monday: Miniskirts

July 28, 2014

This list is of MPs who were last seen wearing miniskirts. I don’t wear them often myself; I find them uncomfortable. Always having to be so careful when you sit down, or have to pick things up, and so on. I prefer long skirts. But they’re common and honestly I’m surprised this list is so short.

Select It Sunday: Laura Ayala

July 20, 2014

Selected by Annie Keller: Laura Ayala, a thirteen-year-old girl who disappeared from Houston, Texas on March 10, 2002. She was very short — only four feet tall — and had light brown highlights in her black hair.

Laura’s fate is pretty much known and her fate is one of those tabloid-esque “every parent’s worse nightmare” ones: she was snatched off the street, literally lifted right out of her shoes, while buying a newspaper less than a hundred feet from her home. Three males — two grown men and a juvenile — are the prime suspects in her disappearance. They went on a violent crime spree and are believed to be responsible for the deaths of three people besides Laura. Her blood was found in a car linked to the suspects, as was semen. Although no charges have been filed in Laura’s disappearance, the details spell out a horrible story.

I need to update her casefile; it says the suspects are awaiting trial for the three murders. I bet probably, even with the glacial pace of murder cases in this country, at least one or two of them have had their criminal cases concluded since then. I haven’t updated Laura’s case even once since the Charley Project was created in 2004.

Laura would be 25 today.

Make-A-List Monday: MPs who disappeared before they were to testify in court

June 30, 2014

This list was created by regular Charley Project blog commenter Mion. Mion notes, “Of those who disappeared, 54% were male and 46% were female. 75% (21) were white, 17% (5) were black, 4% (1) were Hispanic and 4% (1) were of two or more races. Most of the defendants they were to testify against were charged with drug offenses, or were being sued for financial reasons.”

Okay, I had better not update right now

June 27, 2014

Even though I’m awake and feel like updating, I think I had better not. I am making a LOT of typos and wrong words and so on at the moment and keep having to go back and correct them. I think any casefiles I try to write will turn out a wreck. It reminds me of the time when I was taking valium and it turned me into a semi-literate imbecile. (Which, by the way, I initially wrote as “imbelice.” See what I mean?) Oh well, I guess I’ll have to web-surf or read books instead.

Not sure when I’ll have time to update later on. This weekend is my boyfriend’s bi-annual family reunion and I’m going. It’s a huge affair, with people flying in from as far as Guam to attend.

One of the changes I need to make, when I do update, is that they found Nancy Daniel, a fourteen-year-old I just added to Charley two weeks ago. Or, rather, they found her six months after her 1976 disappearance but didn’t identify her until now. And in the same city! Inexcusable.

Flashback Friday: Melody Jones

June 20, 2014

This week’s Flashback Friday case is Melody Ann Jones, missing since May 4, 1983 from the tiny town of Earlsboro in central Oklahoma. She was nineteen years old. Melody is of Native American descent and has very poor eyesight; without her glasses, she’d be legally blind.

On the morning of May 5, after Melody didn’t show up for work, her mom went to her house to check on her. She found Paul, Melody’s husband of two years, dead inside. He’d been stabbed twice: once in the chest, once in the neck. It was just days before his 21st birthday. Melody was missing but all her belongings, including her glasses, were left behind. There were no signs of forced entry and no signs of a struggle, although the contents of Melody’s purse had been dumped on the floor.

The police don’t believe Melody committed the murder; rather, they think she was abducted by whoever killed her husband. Given the circumstances, it’s unlikely that she’s still alive today. But if she is, she would be 40 or 41.

Make-A-List Monday: People Who Disappeared on Walpurgis Night

June 16, 2014

This list was suggested and created by one Eric Cass: people who disappeared on Walpurgis Night, which is to say April 30/May 1. I don’t know much about it, but it seems to be a pagan holiday and the Wikipedia entry says it’s celebrated in one form or another for hundreds of years in the Czech Republic, Germany, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands and Sweden. St. Walpurgia was canonized in the 800s.
