First update of 2012

Nothing terribly exciting — just a bunch of APs and three resolves (all of them deceased, alas).

One case I plan to add in the near future:

Kaliyah Parker, who’s been missing from Cleveland for five years. Much like in the Megan Pratt case, her mom claimed she had died in an accident, but there was no death certificate or anything, and eventually her father reported her missing.

Kaliyah’s mother, India Parker, is presently charged with abuse of a corpse, but that’s really just to keep her behind bars while the cops get to the bottom of this. Presumably they think India probably abused Kaliyah before she became a corpse.

    Thanks for the Shannon Sherrill update- I am friends with one of the children who was playing with Shannon on the day she disappeared. Her case has always interested me in that she is the same age as my oldest daughter, and I live just a few miles from her last known location.

    And I was very saddened to hear about what happened to Laurie Ann Pineda, though at least her family has some “closure” (though I hesitate to use that word) with regard to knowing she’s really gone. What a terrible thing to happen to such an American patriot. BTW, if you Google her name, one of the news agencies that pops up (with the news about her skeletal discovery) is my local NBC affiliate and one of the people who left a contribution to the comments section of said page is Laurie’s cousin.

    Sorry to come bearing the New Year’s gift of more work…but I had the holiday off and noticed that TruTV is broadcasting the trial of Venus Stewart’s husband this week (I don’t know about you, but I sure miss the days when they were CourtTV and broadcast LIVE trials, not ones finished months ago). Anyway…I thought you might want to update your casefile ( with the trial results (spoiler alert in case anyone’s watching and doesn’t want to know yet!). Here’s a local TV news archive of what happened:

    Hey, it could be worse. Santa could have left a reciprocating saw with a diamond blade under the tree, along with a rather pointed reminder of how someone wished for them in order to fix that long-broken cast iron drain pipe in the basement…

    “You want work? I got your wiork right here! Love, Santa.”

    Honestly I don’t know how you keep up with all the MP’s and updates. Other sites that are run by an organization, a whole team of people, get updated far less often than yours.
    I just wanted to say you are a hero! And I appreciate your site so much and everything you do.
