Selected by Jill V. and Holly. Brandy Myers was thirteen years old and on the small side, not quite five feet tall and well under 100 pounds, when she disappeared from Phoenix, Arizona on May 26, 1992. When the police were searching for the next day they found the body of a teenage girl who looked like Brandy. But she wasn’t Brandy, and wasn’t even identified until almost twenty years later. That homicide remains unsolved and no one knows if it’s related to Brandy’s disappearance.
Brandy has been diagnosed with “brain damage.” I’d like to know the extent of the brain damage and the symptoms. She can’t have been seriously impaired or she wouldn’t have been going door-to-door selling stuff for a school fundraiser. But would her condition have made her a little slow, either mentally or physically or possibly both, and less able to resist an attacker?
I have a contact within the Phoenix PD who promised to give me more information about her, but never got back to me about it. I suppose he’s forgotten.
This is a case with just enough details to frustrate me. I wish I knew more. Maybe one of these days some newspaper will do a big feature article on Brandy’s disappearance.
