Like a month ago I was interviewed about the Connie Smith case, and the articles about it are finally coming out. This one came out on August 13; now the second one has been released, and it contains a quote from me:
Meaghan Good, 32, of Ohio, has been administrator for The Charley Project website since 2004. The site profiles approximately 10,000 “cold case” missing people, mainly from the U.S., from the 1800s up until now, with 10, 671 cases currently open.
Good posits that Connie likely met with foul play: “You see this a lot, especially in the 10-to-13 age group,” she said. “They start becoming more independent but they are still pretty naïve.”
“It is very, very sad,” she said. “The father lived to be a Biblical age and never found out about her. The suspect would likely be dead now. But it is possible for the case to be solved. Technology makes it resolvable.”
This week’s featured missing person is Bobby Eugene Adams, a 31-year-old cab driver who disappeared from Charleston, West Virginia on November 30, 1991. It looks like a homicide, possibly at the hands of his last fare. They found a large amount of blood in his cab.
I’ve got a new Executed Today entry up: Hans McFarlane and Helen Blackwood, a pair of common murderers in Scotland who actually got MARRIED while standing on the platform with ropes around their necks.
It’s been 22 days since my last vomiting cycle started and I am not sick yet.
My primary care clinic suggested that, as these were happening every three weeks and generally started several days before the start of my menstrual period, perhaps it was a hormonal thing. So they put me on the Pill.
Maybe the Pill is working. It’s a bit early to tell yet, since these cycles haven’t been occurring EXACTLY every three weeks, but I am hopeful.
All is reasonably well on my end. I’m very happy I adopted Kinsey. It’s hard to believe it’s been less than two months since she came to live with us. She’s such a sweetheart, and very laid-back and chill, which suits me just fine. She and the cats are getting along fine.
Here she is begging salami off me:
And here I am, as of a few minutes ago, with Orville in the background:
So yesterday I posted a third list of MP cases and their Facebook pages. But it occurred to me later that, as the previous two lists have link rot (being made prior to this year’s re-design of Charley), and as Facebook is such a valuable resource for missing persons awareness, maybe I should make this a more permanent thing.
So ta-da! If you look at the very top of this blog, it’ll say “Home” and “About” and, now, “Facebook Pages“. I’ve made a current list of exactly 600 MP cases from Charley and their respective Facebook pages. (Including open Facebook groups about the case, but excluding closed groups.)
I plan to keep this list current as cases are added and removed. Enjoy!
This week’s featured missing person is Sharon Priscilla King, a 43-year-old woman who disappeared from the tiny east Texas community of Ben Wheeler on July 17, 2002. I don’t have much info on her case and haven’t updated it since I added it to Charley back in 2005, but foul play is possible.
