Flashback Friday: Willie Ann Rucker

This week’s Flashback Friday case is Willie Ann Rucker, who went by her middle name. She was 27 and recently divorced when she disappeared from Waterloo, Iowa on April 8, 1979. Her family believes her boyfriend may have been involved; they were having problems.

I don’t have much on this case. Rucker’s son David Barrett, who was just a baby when she disappeared, became a professional football player, so there’s that.

    I have a question about this, the investigating agency is listed as the Dayton Police Department. The agency, and listed phone number, is Dayton, OH. The casefile says she disappeared from Iowa.

      I’ll double-check; chances are that’s in error. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

        No worries. Zero percent chance I could be accurate in creating these profiles.

      Her NamUs webpage says Waterloo, Iowa. The Iowa Missing Persons Clearinghouse says she went missing in Waterloo.
