Circumstances of Disappearance

Gloria was last seen on Friday, March 6, 1981 as she left her job in Horsham, Montgomery County.

Gloria's brother had last spoken to her in early 1981, when he called her from his home in Massachusetts to say that their mother had undergone heart bypass surgery and was in the hospital. In the following weeks, her family made dozens of calls, being told that she either wasn't there or wouldn't come to the phone. They left numerous messages, but never heard back from Gloria.

In April 1981 Gloria's mother received a Mother's Day card, ostensibly from Gloria. It was signed not with the familiar "Love, Gloria" but the more formal "Gloria Korzon". And it wasn't in her handwriting. That is when her family contacted the police. When the police chief went to the Korzon residence, Gloria's husband said that she had gone to visit an aunt in Florida. Gloria had an aunt in Florida, but she had not heard from Gloria in months.

About a month before Gloria disappeared, she sent a letter to her stepfather, instructing him not to open it unless something happened to her. The letter was a 3-page list of beatings that Gloria claimed to had suffered at the hands of her husband. The Korzons were not unknown to local police, who had responded to at least eight domestic incidents at their home between 1976 and 1980. Gloria filed for protection from abuse orders, but would always withdraw her complaints before the court hearings.

Gloria was declared dead in 1997, sixteen years after she disappeared. Foul play is suspected.
