Make-a-List Monday: “Unspecified medical condition”

September 21, 2015

Sorry about last week. I had written, like, six lists in advance and they were running automatically and I just forgot when they ran out.

Anyway, on to today’s list topic. “Unspecified medical condition” is maddening to me. Are we dealing with someone who’s had an organ transplant and needs to take like 50 drugs a day or they’ll die, or someone with some minor, not life-threatening complaint? Is it a mental illness instead, and if so, what kind? There’s a world of difference between schizophrenia and depression. Inquiring minds wanna know. Here they are, people with some kind of medical problem but I’m not sure what:

  1. Caleb Jeffrey Allen
  2. Danielle Nicole Alexander

Flashback Friday: Daniel Jess Goldman

September 11, 2015

This week’s Flashback Friday is Daniel Goldman, missing from Surfside, Florida since March 28, 1966, the night before his eighteenth birthday. His story is long and rather convoluted. Ostensibly it was a kidnapping for ransom; Daniel’s parents were wealthy. There was a lot of talk, though, that things weren’t as they appeared. It’s been close to fifty years since that March night and we will probably never know what really happened.

Make-a-List Monday: Parents who took their own lives

September 7, 2015

This list is for cases where one of the MP’s parents (or both, in theory, though I don’t think there are any of those) committed suicide after the MP went missing. I’m sure the tremendous strain caused by the missing child contributes significantly to depression, etc., which leads in turn to the person’s death. I have decided not to include cases where the parent was a suspect in the MP’s disappearance.

  1. Rogelio Realme Cerda
  2. Frederick Andrew Holmes
  3. Katya Marie Lyne
  4. Diane Nguyen Robbins
  5. Anna Christian Waters
  6. Alan John Westerfield and Terry Lee Westerfield*

*I know it doesn’t say that in their casefiles, but the boys’ biological father killed himself several years after they vanished.

Select It Sunday: Matthew Garnes

September 6, 2015

This week’s Select It Sunday was, like last week’s, chosen by Annie Keller aka forthelost. This is not any favoritism towards her, it’s just I was running a bit low on male suggestions. Everyone make a note.

Anyway, the name chosen is Matthew Paul Garnes, a sixteen-year-old who vanished from Tacoma, Washington the day after Christmas in 1984. He said he was going to Oregon, but apparently never made it there. I’m not sure whether the car he was driving was located or not.

There’s very little info in this case. He’s not listed on the NCMEC, only NamUs.

Make-a-List Monday: Expectant fathers

August 31, 2015

This list idea was supplied to me by T.T.: men who left behind a pregnant wife, girlfriend, whatever when they disappeared.

  1. Eric M. Apatiki
  2. Jose Julian Beltran-Sedano
  3. Joshua Charles Berry
  4. Gene Jacob Cloud Jr.
  5. Joseph Consentino
  6. Ryan Cooper
  7. Ronald Reed Duck Jr.
  8. Ryan Jacob Esparza
  9. Douglas E. Goodwin
  10. Franklin Wayne Harrod Jr.
  11. Derrick Ray Henegan
  12. Cole Duane Jackson
  13. Jonathan Bruce Jackson
  14. Torey Clark Newlin
  15. Erik Thomas Ruiz
  16. Kareem Jamaal Ward

Flashback Friday: Mark Peal and Kevin Conner

August 14, 2015

This week’s Flashback Friday is for friends Mark Peal, 10, and Kevin Lee Conner, 13, who vanished from Port Angeles, Washington on August 26, 1971. The boys were on a camping trip when they went off exploring and never came back. An extensive search turned up nothing and they’re assumed to be dead.

Interesting to note how tall, and how skinny, Kevin is: at thirteen he was 5’10, about average height for a grown man, and weighed just 110 pounds.

Minutes before midnight

August 9, 2015

This week’s Select It Sunday case is Desmond Santonio Dix, chosen by Annie. He was kidnapped from Atlanta, Georgia at gunpoint on January 30, 1996, and was never seen again. He was seventeen years old.

Unfortunately, that’s all I know about this case. You’d think that such a kidnapping, even in Atlanta, would rate at least one or two articles in the paper, but if there were any I’ve been unable to find them. I checked his NamUs profile but they haven’t added anything new.

I hate it when this happens (on again)

August 5, 2015

I listed 18-year-old Daryl Martinez, missing from Albuquerque, New Mexico since last July, today. Then I had to remove him about five minutes later. Annoying.

This is Mr. Martinez’s missing persons poster with the New Mexico Department of Public Safety.

This is an article about a young man also named Daryl Martinez, who was the same age and bears a striking resemblance to the photo on the poster, being arrested for murder in Albuquerque last September. He shot a guy in an argument over $1.

Barring some conclusive evidence that the two Daryl Martinezes are NOT the same person, I’m inclined to believe the New Mexico DPS website is behind in the times and Daryl was located eleven months ago.

Reading Rogelio Cerda’s sister’s blog

July 27, 2015

I’ve spent some time going over Rogelio Cerda‘s sister’s blog about her missing brother, which has a lot of information about him and pictures that I plan to add to his casefile. She believes he didn’t drown the day he disappeared in 1975 and he might have run away and might still be alive. I’m torn between thinking she’s being a tad overoptimistic and thinking there just might be something to her theory. There were a lot of reported sightings of Rogelio in the local area after his disappearance — sightings by people who knew him — and a lot of strange phone calls to the family. At least, I’m going to change his category from “Lost/Injured Missing” to “Endangered Missing.”

According to his sister, his birth name is actually Jesus Rogelio Realme Cerda, though apparently nobody called him Jesus at all: it was either Rogelio or Roger or Junior (since their father was also called Rogelio). He attended Catholic high schools in San Antonio and was an about-to-be sophomore when he disappeared.

Whether Rogelio left intentionally or not, his disappearance had a devastating effect on the family. His father took his own life less than two years later, and I’m sure the disappearance and/or death of his only son contributed to that.

Flashback Friday (minutes before midnight): Jose Dominguez

July 24, 2015

This week’s Flashback Friday case is Jose Esauro Dominguez, a sixteen-year-old reported missing in Stockton, California since August 2, 1981. His is a MWAB case but I don’t know much about it. Two suspects, both of them close to Jose’s age, were charged, but neither of them were brought to trial.

I got a tip about his disappearance several years ago that provided some more details about the alleged murder and why it supposedly happened. Unfortunately, it was nothing I was able to work with.
