    The family of Leah Jean Van Schoick, 17, also had trouble getting law enforcement to pay attention.

    In August 1982, Van Schoick’s family in New Jersey reported the teen missing from her home near Fort Lauderdale and from the Hallandale Beach bar where she worked, Perry said. Van Schoick had moved to South Florida to live with a biker. Her family grew worried when she stopped calling.

    The Broward Sheriff’s Office and Hallandale Beach police had pieces of information, but neither agency was handling the full investigation, Perry said.

    Perry said she contacted the Sheriff’s Office and, in June, a detective was assigned to the case.

    It might not change a thing.

    She reported her sister, Leah Jean Van Schoick, missing in August 1982. Van Schoick was 17 at the time, living with friends near Fort Lauderdale and working in a bar.

    It's unclear where the teen vanished from, but relatives haven't heard from her in 24 years, Fix said.

    "It's bad when they turn up dead, but when you don't even know...that's the worst," said Fix, who lives near Lakeland. "I want to at least put her to rest."

    Scores of unidentified women with Van Schoick's dark blonde hair and hazel eyes have been buried in Florida over the years without anyone knowing their names, according to medical examiner records.
    Like many of the unidentified dead, some of the women died homeless, others at the hands of a killer or drugs, a traffic wreck or by suicide.

    "The more time that goes by, the less likely it becomes that we will be able to identify them," said Dr. Joshua Perper, head of the Broward Medical Examiner's Office.

    There, the case files on unidentified remains date back to 1974, including at least 30 homicides.

    I'm surprised that this case isn't getting much attention. Poor Leah and her family. Does anyone/LE have the name of suspect or POI? A young girl was here, lving and breathing, and someone took her away. She was someone's child, someone's grandchild, someone's friend. It's heartbreaking.

    There are many women and young girls who have been murdered by bikers in the early 80s. Many times the government works deals with these low life's in exchange for what they feel to be more important testimonies regarding other cases. I do not feel these sickos deserved to live let alone receive protection and deals from our country's government.

    Here is an article describing some of the biker rivalries that went on in Florida in the 80s. It was non stop killing between the Outlaws and Hells Angels. They were truly monsters.

    http://www.toledoblade.com/Police-Fi...-brothers.html

    This is what they did to women!!!!

    "The most gruesome charges were the executions of three Hell's Angels tied to cinder blocks and thrown in a rock pit. One ex-girlfriend was shot in the head with a spear-gun, and another was disemboweled and her body dragged from the back of a boat until it broke apart, prosecutors charged. After two years - the longest federal criminal trial in Florida history - six were convicted.

    Prosecutors relied on the testimony of former club members and girlfriends - all vying for reduced sentences."


    For more information regarding bikers killing women read about Dolores DellaPenna's case at the wiki page below. And I urge you to just type Dolores's name into google for a wealth of information you will be utterly shocked I assure you!
