This week’s featured missing person case is that of Edward Larnell Martin, who disappeared from Tulsa, Oklahoma sometime in July 1999 at the age of 50. The exact date of disappearance isn’t known, so I’ve got it down as July 1. Edward is black, 5’10 and 145 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. His nickname is Chicken.
Oddly enough, Edward is related by marriage to Terrence Haney, who disappeared from Tulsa in 2001. I don’t know if the disappearances are related or if the men even knew each other. There isn’t a whole lot of information available in either case.
I hope you all are well. I voted today and the election worker who checked my ID said turnout had been good, even better than in 2020.
I was a poll worker today in Massachusetts, and our turnout was amazing. Thank you for voting (geez I said that so much today but I meant it every time), and for everything you do here as always.
I always find the ones where there’s little information available to be the saddest ones, especially in a case like this where no one reported him missing for a number of years. I have no idea what kind of life the man lived but there’s something profoundly sad about someone who’s gone and no one knows or cares enough to miss the person. I think about all the people, missing or not, for whom that is true. They live on the outer reaches of society, without love or support.
