This week’s featured MP (which was supposed to go up yesterday I know) is Eugene Brown III, a 23-year-old black man who disappeared from Detroit, Michigan on November 15, 2008.
He was seen at a casino on the evening of the 14th, and was heard from (I’m assuming he called someone or they called him) at 1:00 a.m. on the 15th. Later, his car was found abandoned and burned, which doesn’t sound good at all.
This week’s featured missing person (sorry about missing last week) is Shauntay Gilliam, an eighteen-year-old girl who disappeared from Pleasantville, New York, a small town outside of New York City, on September 1, 2015.
Unfortunately, the info that was put on her NCMEC poster is all the info I have on Shauntay. One photo: big eyes, hair hidden under a scarf. Although she is missing from Pleasantville, the police in the nearby city of Mount Pleasant are investigating Shauntay’s case.
That is all.
This week’s featured missing person is Deandre Nativoni Brown, a 22-year-old who disappeared from Jasper, Alabama on July 29, 2005.
It doesn’t look good for him: witnesses heard shots fired, the police found Brown’s bloodstained clothing, and the vehicle he was driving was found abandoned and burned.
This week’s featured missing person is Elizabeth Kovalik, a 28-year-old woman who disappeared from Milford, Connecticut in 1987. The night of her disappearance, she went out to a bar, where she was seen with two men. An acquaintance claims he dropped her off at home afterwards. She has never been heard from again and wasn’t reported missing for a week.
For what it’s worth, Elizabeth was “acting oddly” prior to her disappearance. Me, I wonder how closely the cops questioned the man she left the bar with.
She was featured in a Connecticut Magazine article in 2012.
This week’s featured missing person is Rene Perez Jr., who disappeared with his mom, Cecilia Elizabeth Newball, from Los Angeles in 1994. Rene was six years old; Cecilia was thirty-two.
Cecilia’s husband of one year, Alfredo (who is not Rene’s father) claims Cecilia and Rene simply left one day and never came back. Cecilia left a goodbye-card and her wedding and engagement rings, and Alfredo got a typewritten letter a few days later. The letter said Cecilia (who is originally from El Salvador) was moving to Honduras with a guy named Arturo.
However, foul play is suspected in their cases. Cecilia was eight months pregnant, and women don’t usually pick that time to make major life changes or travel internationally. Furthermore, all of her and Rene’s belongings were left behind, including Cecilia’s car, their clothes and Rene’s glasses.
Some general questions that occur to me with the info that’s available:
- Did Cecilia and Rene’s passports disappear with them? Did Rene even have a passport?
- Was there any record of either of them leaving the United States?
- Did Cecilia even know how to type? Did she usually type her letters?
- Did Alfredo own a typewriter? If so, did the police check and see if it had been used to write that letter?
- Was Rene’s father a presence in their lives, and has he been ruled out as a suspect?
- Does Alfredo have a criminal record or a history of violence towards women?
If he’s still alive, Rene would now be 30 years old. I think he’s probably still six. And I don’t think his younger sibling was ever born.
This week’s featured missing person is Christine Ann Civille, who disappeared from Conway, Washington on Christmas Eve, 1983. She had a houseboat in the Skagit River there. She was 31 years old and would now be 65 — she’ll be 66 this month.
Unfortunately that’s all I have on this case. Even the photo is pretty poor quality.
This week’s featured missing person is Ashok Ankam, a 27-year-old engineering student who disappeared from Cleveland, Ohio on Valentines’ Day, 2008. He was depressed at the time of his disappearance, and there was talk that he may have been headed to Atlanta, but as far as I can tell there hasn’t been any sign of him in a decade.
