My apologies. So, Flashback Friday, a day late…
Two people, who didn’t know each other and disappeared years apart, but are in fact connected: Darcy Dawson Brown and Charlotte Elaine Brown. Darcy was 20 years old when she disappeared in 1964; Charlotte disappeared in 1973 at the age of 29. They were both from the Cleveland, Ohio area and both married to the same man.
No prizes for guessing what happened. Darcy’s kids said they actually witnessed her husband murder her, but nobody was ever prosecuted. Of course, murder-without-a-body prosecutions were much less common back then. Probably all the evidence has been lost or destroyed in the nearly fifty years since Darcy’s disappearance. In any case it doesn’t matter much because the prime suspect in her disappearance, the husband, is dead. I don’t even know what his name was.
It’s unlikely that either of these two women will ever be found. If Darcy and Charlotte had disappeared today, I would hope there would have been a lot of press about their disappearances, and who knows, maybe a MWAB case against the husband. But who knows? I can think of plenty of equally deserving cases that haven’t been prosecuted.
