MP of the week: Inez Garcia

This week’s featured missing person is a very old one: Inez Garcia, who disappeared from Santa Fe, New Mexico on November 2, 1952. Sixty-six years ago this year. If still alive, she’d be something like 92 years old. I’m not 100% sure cause I don’t know her date of birth. In fact, I don’t know very much at all about her, and it’s hard to tell what she looked like from the only available photo.

Inez’s husband, Juan Andres Jose Garcia, is the prime suspect in her disappearance, and as recently as 2014 the police dug up the floor of his garage and found some charred bone fragments which were sent away for testing. I’ve heard nothing more about this.

National Hispanic Heritage Month: Suzie Ruiz

In honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month I’m featuring a Hispanic missing person every day from September 15 to October 15. Today’s case is Suzie Felan Ruiz, a 36-year-old woman who disappeared from San Antonio, Texas on December 16, 2006.

She told her family she was going out to a party, but the police think she was actually going out to buy drugs when she disappeared. Her car turned up abandoned in a field, with its plates removed, which doesn’t sound good at all.
