Select It Sunday: Hazel Alice Klug

This week’s Select It Sunday (sorry it took so long) was chosen by Rosalie R.: Hazel Alice Klug, who is her cousin. Hazel (who went by her middle name) was 23 when she disappeared from her Richmond, Virginia apartment sometime during the night of May 20-21, 1986. She spoke to her boyfriend on the phone at 11:30 p.m. and all was normal then, but she didn’t show up for work the next day and when the police were called to her apartment, all her stuff — including the dog — was left behind but Hazel was gone.

Significantly, one of the few things that disappeared with her was a large suitcase.

I can’t find any articles about this case, either recent or in the news archives, which is unfortunate. Hazel has been missing for 31 years. Sadly this wasn’t the first tragedy to befall her family; Find a Grave mentions an older sister who was killed by a drunk driver in 1981. Both of Hazel’s parents are now deceased as well.

    A large suitcase was missing? That was bad, very bad

    OT but did you hear about the human remains they found in Silver Creek BC? At least 5 women have gone missing in the area in the last 20 months, though they have yet to confirm or deny anything really..

      No, I don’t think I have.

    Hazel’s story has always stayed with me because we had the same occupation (although I was still a kid when she disappeared). I wish there was more attention on her case, both then and now.

    Who would even notice that a suitcase was missing from someone’s home? Does that not seem bizarre? It would be interesting to know who made that observation.

    OT: I just read the updates and those Martinez children do NOT look 2 and 4. No way. Were they updated from later after their disappearances or something?

      Not that I know of. I have to use what I’ve got to work with.
