Article about Juane Johnson

I found this article about Juane Johnson, who disappeared from Piscataway, New Jersey in 1998. She was 23 at the time and had a daughter, who is now 18. The daughter was raised by Juane’s parents and will soon graduate high school.

There isn’t a whole lot of information about Juane’s disappearance — it looks like she was just gone. She was having some personal problems, but there doesn’t seem to be any evidence that she just took off. No evidence of foul play either.

I wish I knew how her name was pronounced. Maybe like Juan, or maybe like June, or Joo-on, or Joo-ann, or what?

This is what she heard

Today Michael, his parents and myself went out to lunch and to run errands. His mother went into a store and left us in the car. When she came out about twenty minutes later, this is what she heard me say as she got into the car:

“But how do you determine whether or not a clam is gay?”

This was actually part of a fairly serious scientific discussion between Michael, his dad and me, but I’m not going to tell you about it. Just leave you to wonder.
