Alison Mims and Michael Francis found deceased

My contact with the Phoenix Police Department emailed me saying Alison Marie Mims, a nineteen-year-old missing from Phoenix since 1980, has been found dead. Her partial remains were actually found in 1987 — he didn’t say where — but it wasn’t until now that they were identified, with the help of DNA.

Another informant says Michael Francis was identified in August. Back in June I wrote that they found his possible remains, but I didn’t hear anything else about it until now. Michael was 21 when he was abducted off the street, shot and forced into a car trunk. A man was charged with his murder, but at the first trial, the judge declared a mistrial due to prejudicial testimony; the second time the jury hung. I heard the third trial was to take place in December but I can’t find anything about it.

    My prayers are with them-at least after decades, the family now knows.

    Wasn´t Allison Mims possibly murdered by the drunk male accomplice she gave a ride to? Does anyone know if he is officially a suspect or if finding her could lead to any charges brought against him?

      I am sickened by the vast private knowledge you so easily spread and post about this case Skip. The family hired you from personal connections. And the knowledge is privleged. I think you certainly have your own personal agenda with this case. It upsets me deeply to go to these blogs and each one you boast about yourself and give out private information. This man has not been convicted. Stop soreading around stuff you learned about this case!! Its wrong Skip. I know because im apart of the family. Stop talking!!

        Sheresa it is ALL public information about cases like this. The media is going to beat up Patrick as much as they want. Nothing will change that. Just because its someone close to you doesnt not make this any different from any other case that has gone cold!! If he did it then so be it he will pay for it now. If not good for him and it will be hard to convict him due to lack of evidence.

    Michael Francis body was found – it was found weks after the shooting but the shooter cut off his hands so he couldnt be identified. They recently prooved that the body was his through dental records. THe shooter was sentenced to life without parol.

    Being close or not close to the parties involved, does not make them any different from any other cold case, but the absolute unprofessionalism that, Skip Ensley, has shown does indeed make it different! He has a very personal agenda & an unprofessional disregard, in handling himself in the public eye! I know it was not him who blew the case “wide open”. I know because I was there! They only correct thing that he has said at all I’d that this case is a cluster f***! How does he find glee in another’s suffering? Where are the other 2 sets of remains? Doesn’t anybody think that might be important?

    I forgot to mention in this case there are more inconsistencies, lies, about the happenings of this case… The arresting address is completely, incorrect, in Albuquerque on the local news, it showed, a picture of a house 3 blocks away, as well as claimed, that there was a foot chase down Indian School Rd., no foot chase took place at all! It also doesn’t mention people being coerced or threatened by law enforcement but it took place!
