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.
