This week’s Select It Sunday post, chosen by Jodi H., is Petra Loretta Muhammad, a 30-year-old mother of one who disappeared on January 7, 2006 from Highland Falls, New York.
As in so many cases this one of “suspected spousal snuffage.” (I credit Carl Koppelman with coining that phrase.) Petra was in the process of a divorce at the time of her disappearance, and her relationship with her estranged husband was troubled at best. She was born and raised in the Caribbean and I don’t know if she had any family living nearby.
It’s a sad case, particularly, I suppose, for Petra’s young son, who would probably be in his teens by now.
