This week’s featured missing person is Heather Marie Riggio, a 20-year-old woman missing from North Miami Beach, Florida since May 6, 2007 — nine years.
Heather had a troubled life prior to her disappearance; she was seeing a married man and she was involved with drugs, prostitution, and, far more disturbingly, human trafficking. I don’t know whether that means she herself had been trafficked (that, forced into prostitution) or whether she merely associated with known traffickers, or even whether she actually was implicated in trafficking cases. In any case, not good. She has a criminal charge pending against her for felony drug possession.
I doubt this young woman is still alive. It seems like she would have resurfaced, or at least called home, if she could have.
