    While transient generally means homeless or a person moving from place to place and crashing at friends homes it can also refer to a nomadic free spirit.

    In the 1970’s/early ’80’s people traveling from place to place with long haul truckers would have been called transient. But at a time when truckers were seen as romantic knights of the interstate the people themselves may have said they were nomadic hippie free spirits.

    I believe that’s how Tammy Jo Alexander (Caledonia Jane Doe) saw herself.

    If interested, “ Who Is The Girl With No Name?”

      Very true, Peter…I believe that in some of these cases that could explain the disappearances.

    Also, Bridget Lee Pendell-Williamson…if not homeless, then pretty close to it. A really sad one.

    Great idea for a list! BTW, Sofa surfing lol – that’s a good one!

    In the case of Deborah Wims, I think that she was most likely a victim of Gary Ridgway…he murdered her sister Cheryl in 1983. Like her older sister Cheryl, Deborah was a prostitute and chances are that Ridgway crossed paths with her at some point.

    It’s just that Deborah’s remains have never been found. She was a very pretty girl from the pictures I’ve seen. I think the Wims sisters were either biracial or very light-skinned…Opal Mills was another Ridgway victim who fits that description also.

    Oh, by the way…my name is Melinda; the same person who posted above. I also go by MB, just so there’s no confusion. I’m still learning my way around this blog.

    Anyway, another name on this list jumps out at me: Tawnya Fay Parker.
    I believe that Thomas Freeman is responsible for her murder/disappearance, whatever you want to call it. There is a lot of evidence that she was harmed…the blood, the scream that was heard coming from the apartment, and the fact that their relationship was volatile.

    Tawnya was actually from Washington, not Georgia, although she lived in ATL for a while.
    Her mother Barbara died in 2004…Tawnya resembled her a lot. I don’t think that Tawnya shared the same father with her two siblings, Eric and Jennifer. There is a slight resemblance between Tawnya and her sister, but I think Tawnya was somewhat prettier.

    Freeman tried to say that it was menstrual blood on the mattress but it is obviously a lie. Plenty of women (particularly those with heavy periods) bleed a lot and have accidents, but not to the extent where it actually looks like a crime scene occurred. I speak from experience with having extremely heavy bleeding in the past…it makes a mess and can stain clothes/beds, but not to the degree where people are suspicious.
    Didn’t he realize how bogus that sounds? First somebody heard Tawnya scream, then her blood is on his shoe and the mattress, and there is the question of her disappearance.
    Of course people will wonder what happened and what, if any, part he played in it.
