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 Yolanda Jean Maull, who disappeared from Birmingham, Alabama on May 26, 1982, at the age of thirty.
Yolanda was in the process of a divorce at the time of her disappearance. She spoke to her attorney at 9:00 that morning. She was supposed to attend a court hearing about the divorce later that day, but never showed up. Her car was found abandoned.
Given the timing, one inevitably wonders whether her husband was somehow involved. But no charges have been filed against anyone, and it’s been a very long time since anyone heard from Yolanda.
