MP of the week: Christi Jo Nichols

This week’s featured missing person is Christi Jo Nichols, a 22-year-old mother of two who disappeared from the town of Gothenburg in central Nebraska two weeks before Christmas in 1987.

Although her then-husband, Mark, says she simply left him,the police disagree and are investigating this case as a possible homicide. What person who’s run away ditches their car, their purse and the suitcase they packed? Whenever a person disappears and their car is left behind, I tend to think that it was probably not voluntary, unless there’s evidence to the contrary (i.e. a bus or plane ticket). Especially in a state like Nebraska, I should think, you really need a car to get anywhere.

The most recent article I could find about this case was from 2012.

    My issue with this case is that Hubby could tell law enforcement EVERY PIECE OF CLOTHING that Christi had taken with her, right down to the underwear.

    I call B.S. No way is that possible, unless you’re the one who packed the suitcase.

    I am a frequent poster over at another board and am absolutely convinced of his guilt in her disappearance/murder.

    there is no way my husband could tell anyone what was missing from my closet. he couldn’t even tell you what I was wearing that day. And she reported and had evidence of phyical abuse, this tells me that he was responsible for her disapearance. to move away the day after she lea ves…..that is not sensible. he killed her and only he knows where he put her.

      Her children are now grown and he is on Facebook and I know in my heart he killed this young woman. It is unfortunate that at least 2 husbands on Unsolved Mysteries is GUILTY and no charges were brought on them.
