Select It Sunday

Several people on the Charley Project Facebook page were asking me to make a Flashback Friday post for a certain person. I explained that, as that person disappeared in 1987, it did not qualify as a Flashback Friday because Flashback Fridays have to be from October 5, 1985 or before. They urged me to “bend the rules” just this once. I am not willing to do that, especially considering that Flashback Friday is brand new, only three weeks old.

But I thought maybe I could do another regular weekly feature where Charley Project viewers select their own cases for me to write about on this blog. Hence, Select It Sunday.

My first posting will be the aforementioned 1987 case. After that, anything is fair game. You decide. Nominate cases by email or in the blog comments, and I’ll pick one each week and write about him or her. Preferably these cases should be AFTER 1985, since Flashback Friday covers pre-1985 ones.

    I’d love to see a write-up on Amy Billig. Her disappearance is one I always think about. I think her mother’s heart breaking search is what really grabs me. I couldn’t forget about that case, ever. Especially after reading her book. Crazy to think she’s been gone since ’74, no known updates lately:/

    I would like to see Amanda Campbell (1991), since her case gets no attention. Currently, if you Google her case, there are a total of 2 pages on the entire Google search pertaining to her case. Some cases, there are dozens of pages in the Google search – on just one person (ex: Michaela Garecht, etc). I’ve requested her as the MP before and I’ve been a constant in trying to keep her name in the media as much as I can. And I’ll continue to do so. Second, Brandy Myers (1993?). This case baffles me. And it’s relatively new to me. Third, Hailey Culwell. Although I know it’s a far stretch, I hope she is still out there somewhere. She was truly an innocent victim to a very scary monster, her mother’s husband. Thank you, Meaghan!

    Shnnon Sherrill from Thorntown, Indiana. a six-year old who went missing in 1987 (1986?) An acquaintance of mine was playing with her the day she vanished.

    Mine has already been done for Flashback Friday. It was William Christopher Delk.

    The cases of Sandra Mary Jacobson and John Henry Jacobson (her son) have always piqued my interest. They went missing from Bismarck, ND in November 1996.

    Great idea Meaghan.

    You were already kind enough to do a person of the week post for me, Linda Britton missing since June 11, 1963

    While Linda’s case qualified for flashback Friday its not the type of case that would have been featured there as so little is publicly known. But her person of the week post allowed me to post a link to my profile for her which includes a number of comments made by her old friends who are now in their late 60‘s.

    I think that is the type of cases that should be featured here. Case’s where people could post information based on personal interest or memories. The information they provide may not fit a Charley Project profile report as it unverified or may simply be personal recollections of the person but that’s frequently the way I find fascinating facts/observations about cases were very little is publicly known.

    I know there are cases out there where people have kept old newspaper reports that can’t be found online. Typing up the whole article or extrapolating pertinent sections could help fill out the known facts.

      Quite so, Peter. I intend for my Flashback Fridays to be cases where some details are available, but not a whole lot of details. No “few details are available” cases and no Rilya Wilsons or Peter Kemas either.

      Hopefully my featuring these cases will bring some old friends and relatives out of the woodwork. In the Charley Project Twitter feed, Mitchell Zimny was featured recently, and his nephew (also named Mitchell Zimny) saw it and said something about it.
