The internet still works

May 5, 2015

They’re supposed to turn off the internet at the house today and I’ve been waiting for that to happen. (See this entry.) But it’s almost three-thirty and the connection still works.

Anyway, the MP of the week is Carolyn Ruth Killaby, a woman who disappeared from Orchards, Washington on November 11, 1995. It’s not a mystery what happened to her — she was murdered by a guy who was convicted and later committed suicide in prison — but her body has never been found.

It’s Tuesday again! MP of the week time!

April 28, 2015

This week’s is Kazimierz Krystian Kazmierski, last seen in San Bruno, a town on the coast of central California, on September 1, 1992. He was 29 years old. Beyond that I have nothing on him; it’s one of my “few details are available” cases. I think his name is pretty unfortunate though. Both because the first and last name are almost identical and because of the initials KKK.

Cracked features missing people again

April 21, 2015

In their recent photoplasty, 23 Creepy Unsolved Mysteries Nobody Can Explain, Cracked has talked about Charley Project MPs Garnell Moore, Amy Bradley, Zachary Ramsay, Tara Calico, and of course the Sodder children.

Select It Sunday: Mary Carol Hill Fredrick

April 5, 2015

Selected by Cattt, this SIS case is Mary Carol Hill Fredrick. She had spent fourteen years working for the state helping underprivileged kids, but had taken a leave of absence from her job to enroll in law school at Stetson University. She disappeared from Tampa, Florida on June 3, 1994.

Mary was last seen in the company of Louis Joseph Hlava. I did some looking into the case and found this page, which has a comment from someone claiming to be Mary’s husband. He writes that Hlava was a coworker of Mary’s and is the only suspect in her disappearance. The husband is presumably not a suspect since he was camping with his and Mary’s son across the country when she disappeared. I’ll have to update her Charley Project page with the new information.

MP of the week: Elba Irizarry

March 17, 2015

This week’s featured missing person is Elba Irizarry, missing from Camden, New Jersey since 1994. She was 43, and would be 63 today. I don’t have much on her, unfortunately, and was unable to find anything more when I did my usual checking.

MP of the week: Fred Wright

March 10, 2015

This week’s featured MP is Fred Wright, a thirteen-year-old boy who vanished from his Tuskegee, Alabama home on December 6, 1998. His case is very frustrating to me due to the lack of detail. I have no clue what happened to his kid and I can’t find any news about this case. Is he runaway? An abduction? I’m thinking more the latter, since it says there is a suspect in his disappearance. I really wish I knew more.

If anybody reading this knew Fred or has any more details about his disappearance, I welcome you to email me or post about it in the comments section of this blog entry.

If Fred is still alive, he’ll have turned 30 years old last month.

MP of the week: Catherine Chiang

March 3, 2015

This week’s featured missing person is Catherine Chiang, a Taiwanese-American nurse who disappeared from the Bronx in 1997. Foul play is suspected in her case, but little information is available. I could find only one press item about her disappearance, a short article published six weeks after she vanished. This is one of those “I wish I knew more” cases.

Select It Sunday: Georgia Ann Clock Smith

February 22, 2015

Selected by Kat. I was going through old blog entries from years ago and I found one from before Select It Sunday was even a thing, where Kat commented and asked me to run Georgia Ann Clock Smith as my MP of the week. I’ll do this instead.

Georgia is typical of a certain profile of MP on Charley: an elderly person with dementia who may have just wandered away. She was on a trip to her summer home, over 100 miles. Her car was never recovered. The most likely theory is that she got lost, either because her usual route was blocked or because of her Alzheimer’s or both, and got into a car accident.

Select It Sunday: Pamela June Ray

February 15, 2015

Selected by Andy, this week’s case is Pamela June Ray, missing from Panama City, Florida since August 12, 1992. She was 36. It appears she may have been grabbed by an opportunistic predator: she was last seen walking near an apartment swimming pool, being followed by a man. Witnesses heard the sound of a woman screaming.

There are a couple of articles about her available on NewsLibrary but they don’t tell much more than I already knew. I wonder if whoever took her was a serial offender. In my observation/experience, these people don’t just stop at one.

MP of the week: Katheryne Lugo

February 10, 2015

This week’s featured missing person is Katheryne Mary Lugo, a beautiful little curly-haired four-year-old girl who vanished in 1994. Katheryne’s mother, Frances Moya, was pregnant at the time, and planned to break up with the unborn baby’s father, Misbah Kazi. She came home from work one day and Kazi told her he’d taken Katheryne and wouldn’t return her unless Frances gave him custody of their unborn child. Kazi was subsequently charged with kidnapping, but got acquitted for some reason. He’s in prison now for trying to kill another woman. He’s never revealed what happened to Katheryne.

If she is alive, Katheryne would be 26 years old next month.
