My contact with the Phoenix Police Department emailed me saying Alison Marie Mims, a nineteen-year-old missing from Phoenix since 1980, has been found dead. Her partial remains were actually found in 1987 — he didn’t say where — but it wasn’t until now that they were identified, with the help of DNA.
Another informant says Michael Francis was identified in August. Back in June I wrote that they found his possible remains, but I didn’t hear anything else about it until now. Michael was 21 when he was abducted off the street, shot and forced into a car trunk. A man was charged with his murder, but at the first trial, the judge declared a mistrial due to prejudicial testimony; the second time the jury hung. I heard the third trial was to take place in December but I can’t find anything about it.
