This week’s Select It Sunday case was chosen by Ted: Hattie Gertrude Brown, age 48, missing from Halifax County, Virginia since May 16, 2009. Hattie dropped her adult nephew, Derek Brown, off at a party in the wee hours of the morning and was last seen in her car afterwards. The car was found abandoned and burned months later. Derek is considered a possible suspect in her case, but he’s never faced charges.
I found this article published on May 13 this year, which provides a little more info than I had previously: notably, that she left behind “critical” medication. I had known she was taking medicine and left it behind but didn’t realize it was “critical.” Since she went missing a few of her eleven siblings have died.
