Flashback Friday: Gloria Korzon

This week’s Flashback Friday case is Gloria Suzanne Korzon, who disappeared from Warrington, Pennsylvania on March 9, 1981. The case is a very sad but pretty typical example of domestic violence.

Due to her husband William’s attempt to cover up her absence, she wasn’t reported missing until July of that year. When Gloria’s family reported her disappearance to the police and they asked William about it, he lied and said she was visiting an aunt out of state.

Furthermore, the couple’s marriage had been pretty terrible. The police had been called to their home eight times, and Gloria left behind a list of times when William allegedly assaulted her; the list was three pages long.

William is, obviously, the prime suspect in his wife’s disappearance, but no charges have ever been filed in her case.

    Ugghhh I work with domestic violence survivors every day and this type of “missing person” case is very infuriating. I wonder where the husband is now…

        Lovely. Not far from me. I hope that is some shirt tail kin or something……though that name isn’t too common, I don’t think.

        I found one other William Korzon but he was too young. This one would be about the right age.

    Meaghan, at the bottom of the case file where it says kiddder inherited her $56,000 bank account, do you mean Korzan, the husband or kidder, her brother? I hope it was the brother. Cases like this make me so mad. I’ve been interested in missing persons for so long that I’ve seen so many of these. There’s this episode of ‘Forensic Files’ where a couple was in the process of getting A divorce or at least she was planning to leave him and he killed her and they were able to prove it through forensics. In this episode her father says that he believes anyone woman who has been in an abusive relationship or who is getting a divorce even if the relationship hasn’t been abusive and has previously been stable (because of the fact that divorce is so contentious and so fraught with emotion) that women in this situation should only visit with their spouse in the company of others and never alone! I wish this could become common knowledge and practice because there are too many missing woman and I don’t think most people even have a clue how many or how common this scenario is!

      It was her brother. William was by then her ex-husband and would have been entitled to nothing from her estate.

      He may not even be alive anymore. Gloria would be in her mid-seventies now.
