MP of the week: Catrina Jackson

This week’s featured missing person is thirteen-year-old Catrina Renee Jackson, who disappeared while walking to school in Sylvania, Georgia on May 30, 1986.

An article I found from just a few days after she went missing suggested she was a runaway, but the NCMEC has her case classified as a non-family abduction. In any case, I don’t have much on it. Catrina, who may be addressed by her middle name, would be 46 years old now, and, in two weeks, will have been gone for 33 years.

    OT, I saw the update with Dena Candelario added. There is some pretty crazy backstory with that case. It was covered in an episode of one of the true crime shows, either Dateline or 20/20 or similar. Dena and Ralph’s son was engaged to a girl who is the daughter of his second victim, and the younger couple was engaged first, well before Ralph and Pamela got together. Then the story that Ralph gave to the police about Pamela, and the subsequent bizarre story he gave to a local newspaper, were ridiculously different from one another. It was a strange case. And I think nobody had suspicions about his first wife until after his second was killed. Just really strange, and sad for all of the children involved.

    There was a Jane Doe found in Union City, GA 1992 with similar features. I wonder if it is her? It says the body was between 5″6 and 5″10, and the age was late teens to early twenties. So pretty vague. With the timing, she would have been late teens and could have grown an inch or 2. It says the body was a couple years before discovered, but the eyebrow ridges, nose, and jaw are very similar. Maybe just a coincidence?

    It was mentioned in the investigation that she ran away with an older man. Someone even said she joined the circus, but I find that hard to believe
