Black History Month: Ramona Catherine Redd

In honor of Black History Month I’m profiling one African-American MP every day on this blog for the month of February. Today’s case is Ramona Catherine Redd, who disappeared from Baltimore, Maryland on March 7, 2002. She was 19 years old at the time.

I don’t have much on Ramona’s disappearance. She left home in the wee hours and was planning to walk to her sister’s house. The last sign of her was at a 7-11 on Orleans Street. She called a friend from a pay phone and said she was lost. Other than that, nothing seemed to be wrong. Ramona was never seen again.

Her family has suffered greatly, and not just because of her disappearance — the month after Ramona vanished, her mother was murdered.

If Ramona is still alive, she’d be 35 years old today.

    I believe she was kidnapped , the details based on the case indicted that she had no reason to walk out of her life.

    How do you get lost walking to a relatives house, unless she had never been to her sisters house.

      I’ve got no sense of direction, and I’ve never been to any of my siblings’ houses without a parent driving me there, and they all live miles away from me. I could easily get lost.

      Perhaps her sister had recently moved.

    Is there anyway to make the photos bigger? They are so tiny I am having difficulty seeing them.
