Coming back by popular demand: the old resolved cases

Wellllll, I’ve been nagged one too many times about re-posting the old (pre-redesign) resolved cases, so I’m going to do that, starting in reverse chronological order. As in, I’ve started adding the cases that were resolved early this year, just before the website got redesigned, and I’ll be going backwards from there.

The only resolved notices I will NOT be putting up are most of the runaways and family abduction victims who were found safe. They don’t need that in their lives.

I don’t know how long this is going to take to complete. I’ve barely dipped my fingertips into it and I’m already bored to death.

    Happy birthday young lady! Saw your mention on Facebook, but I don’t have an account to be able to send you good wishes on your special day.

    Do something nice for yourself today Meaghan!

    It may be awkward figuring if you should say anything about runaways that are found safe or how you’d do it, but I’m glad you’re keeping track of them. Family abductions are a touchy subject and I guess (safe) runaways are, too.

    But I got SO pissed off thinking about one of your latest resolved cases today (Elizabeth Lamotte) because of how authorities seem to deal with runaways. From what I found out about her, she seems to have been a “habitual” runaway. She ran away in 1984 at 16.

    I’m sure that the authorities basically just wrote her off as “not our problem anymore” once she would have turned 18. Her family probably didn’t realize that so she wasn’t officially a “missing person” until last year, around the time you added her profile to Charley.

    I saw a little graphic that her brother made for her sometime in the past year. It really tore up my stomach when I saw “Liz, your family loves and misses you!” beneath her picture.
    Nobody could have known that she was found dead and naked beside Interstate-81 in Tennessee, halfway across the country from her family in New Hampshire, merely a year after she left home. Because cops NEVER KNEW TO EVEN CHECK TO SEE IF IT COULD BE HER!

      And it seems like an odd coincidence about victims of “the redhead murders” (likely including Lamotte) finally being identified lately. So many of them went decades without names and there have been at least 3 or 4 that suddenly identified within the past couple months. I think that’s due to families finally deciding to check to see if authorities actually knew the girls were even missing.
