    Police were notified on December 31, 1971 by Joanne's mother after she had been unable to reach her.

    Joanne's case on Charlie Project:

    Based on this information,

    I think Joanne's second husband, Philip, was abusive. Note the conflicting answers that he gives. Joanne may have fled an abusive marriage. It would be interesting to find out if Philip took a polygraph. I think he is hiding something. Bruises on a woman's face and body by accident? And seemingly repeatedly? (It says witnessed by other people, and that her Mother "feared for her daughter's safety.") Those were "accidents" as well? Can't buy that, no way.

    Philip said he "couldn't remember" the exact date that he last saw Joanne...anyone think that's a little weird? This is the man's wife, supposedly coming to pack up and leave the marriage permanently! You would imagine that sort of thing would be emblazoned on a person's mind.

    I don't know but, like you, I'm very curious.

    Someone very close to Joanne (NOT her husband) contacted us hoping to find answers after all these years. The docs and personal photos were provided to us by that person. I know we have at least one more to share - an old news article. We're working on enhancing it so it's easier to read.
