MP of the week: Stratis Elmore

This week’s featured missing person is Stratis Elias Elmore, a nineteen-year-old young man of Greek and Hispanic descent who disappeared from Roseville, California on October 19, 2017.

It’s unclear whether his disappearance was a suicide, or a faked suicide. He was facing criminal charges at the time of his disappearance and he had a record, and the police think he might just have done a runner, but his mom thinks he might be dead. In any case, three years is a long time for a teenager to drop completely under the radar.

    Off Topic: If anyone is looking for new and absorbing books,

    I strongly recommend “Hell in the Heartland” by Jax Miller, about the Lauria Bible/Ashley Freeman

    case and “Boy Missing” by Rebecca Morris, about Kyron Horman’s disappearance.

      How recent is the Hell in the Heartland book? As far as initial publishing date goes?

      • Meaghan July 30, 2020 / 11:57 pm

        It literally just came out. Like a day or two ago.

        Yes, published July 28, 2020. There’s also a documentary from last year, search YouTube for “Hell in the Heartland + Jax Miller” to find all 4 parts.

    If I remember right the authorities finally determined what happened to those young ladies, and who set the trailer on fire, killed the parents and kidnapped and murdered the two girls. Two of the offenders are dead. Also, the authorities have pictures taken of the girls before they were murdered. What a horrible story.

    I going through some stuff last night and noticed in the Judith Ann Chartier case, that her car was missing also. However, what gets me is that there is no license plate information on the car which is a 1972 or 1977 Dodge Dart. Knowing the license plate information on the missing vehicle is important information.

    We have many other missing people, and their vehicles are missing. Most of them have the license plate information listed. One of them even has the VIN listed for the missing vehicle, on his missing person flyer from the investigating agency, which is a useful detail, if a matching vehicle is found abandoned and the plates are missing.

      I’ll see if I can find a plate number. I should see if there’s any updates on the case, as far as recent news, while I’m at it.

    Interesting that Anita Yolanda Parker (in 1998) and Crystal Ann Tymich (in 1994) both went missing from the 6000 block of Brynhurst Avenue in Los Angeles. Makes me wonder if there are any more “hotspots” for disappareances.

    Also, what’s the difference between a case file (is that the images and ‘statistics’ to the right) and case summary (is that the Details of disappearance)?

    On another note, why is light blue so frequent in the background of so many photos, with increasing frequency after 2010 – such as Angel William Ramirez, Scott Morgan Wainwright, James White Smith III, Fredrick John Gouveija Jr., James Yount, Jimmie Love Jr., Carol Marlene Ferguson, Nathan Warren Florence II, Douglas Allen Crum, Vanessa Camelia Pell, Contina Marie Savage, Salvador Vargas Martinez, Julianne Garcia, Sergei Turin, Robert Marcus Trujillo, Tom John John, Robert Davie, Melissa Marie Palacios, Dolly Loucina Hall, Dakota Day Roberts, Karem Kay Neilson, Christie Floyd, Marianela Padron-Palma, Damian Suttle, Grecia Blanquel, Damaris Jure, Trung Quang Ngo (just to name a few, ahem very few, names).

      I think the light blue background is what’s used in driver’s license photos and that’s generally the first pic available to police.

      “Case file” refers to the entire missing persons page on the Charley Project.

      • Tigurinn Tigrason August 1, 2020 / 2:13 pm

        Well, I’m more confused than ever, because many cases have the update text “casefile added” (such as Rodney L. Frazier, Hannah Emily Upp and Adriana M. Bejarano) , which would mean that there was a ‘casefile’ before.

        Guess I’ll just never know.

      • Meaghan August 1, 2020 / 2:14 pm

        That just means that was the date I first put the page up.

  5. Tigurinn Tigrason August 3, 2020 / 7:43 pm

    Let me illustrate:

    Photo shows it had been updated one time since October 12, 2004 – which is clearly the date when this individual (his page has now been updated for a second time) was entered into the website, meaning his casefile was then added. So, something was added onto the casefile on November 15, 2019, and that can’t be a casefile because how can that be added in 2019 when the casefile was created and added in 2004. A casefile can’t be added twice.

    But never the less, I don’t think I’ll get an answer. Oh well.

    • Meaghan August 3, 2020 / 7:45 pm

      No, the 2004 date refers to the date the Charley Project database was founded. Then I added that particular casefile on November 15, 2019.
