    Interesting update on case.

    May 2, 2012

    Missing women
    inquiry goes on in
    Springfield


    Forget all the rumors you’ve heard.

    “You may be that person sitting there with
    that piece of information that we need,”
    said Springfield Police Lt. David Millsap. He
    believes someone who has yet to come
    forward has the pivotal tip to solve the 20-
    year-old case of the “three missing
    women.”

    After a year-and-a-half review of the
    disappearances, police are ready to start a
    new wave of investigation and they are
    asking you for help.

    “I want people to reach back in their
    memory,” he said...(Snip)

    Upcoming 20th year anniversary

    'One Missing Link' Event For 3 Missing Women Promotes Memory, Hope

    By: Laurie Patton

    Updated: June 2, 2012

    (Springfield) -- It's been twenty years since three Springfield women vanished.

    While the case is still unsolved, one local organization was founded to ensure that people don't forget or give up hope.

    Janis McCall is the mother of Stacy McCall, one of the three women that disappeared.
    18 years ago Janis founded One Missing Link. The name comes from the search of the missing piece of the puzzle the families and law enforcement think could help this case. It's a non-profit organization that helps reunite the missing with their families and the event today is a reminder that the community is not giving up on the case of the three missing women.

    "20 years ago is just a number, but knowing that 20 years has changed her so much that I wouldn't even recognize her. That's what hurts," said McCall.

    Janis McCall has spent the past twenty years searching for her daughter Stacey, her friend and her friend's mother who disappeared without a trace from a Springfield home in 1992.

    Today she is still hopeful she'll find the one missing link.

    "We want the community to know we appreciate them just as much and those that love and care for Suzie and Stacy and Sherrill," said McCall.

    And to show appreciation, more than 30 motorcycle riders rode in the one missing link's annual motorcycle ride. A 98 mile ride from Springfield to Fellows Lake.

    "It reminds people every year that there are lots of people missing and it's not just the three missing women its people everywhere," said McCall.

    One missing link works along side the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to help find and reunite the missing with their families. According to NCMEC's website, from 1984 through march 2012 it has assisted law enforcement in recovering more than 175, 200 children and today's ride is for the community to remember there are still more missing...

    Interesting. There were skeletal remains found in the park back in 2004. They were ID'ed as belonging to Rebecca Sutton. I don't think that case has been solved yet that I know of.

    I read somewhere that there was a belief that there were bodies buried in a local hospital car park. Is this true, and if so was it deemed credible and did anyone ever look.

    It seems so strange that nothing concrete has ever been found. These were three grown, and fairly physically fit women at home and near neighbours. There cannot be that many scenarios where they could just disappear. I read one of them was only wearing her PJs and the cars where there so I would assume that indicates they did not leave the house of their own free will. The only way I can think of getting three grown women out of the house without a struggle in their PJs is if they were threatened with a gun or something, or alternatively they were outnumbered and the kidnappers managed to subdue them before the could make too much noise and alert the neighbours.
    One thing I read that struck me was the fact the place, including the daughter's bedroom were found neat and tidy with clothe flded up on the bed. maybe I am just a slob, but if that is true it does not seem quite right. two teenage girls getting home late at night after a celebratory party do not seem the most likely candidates to be folding their clothes up before going to bed. most teenagers would just dump them on the floor. ,aybe someone else tidied up after they were taken.

    Also why break the porch light. i can see the idea of making it dark there, but why risk alerting them with the noise instead of just unscrewing the bulb?

    20 years today. Pardon the cliché, but it doesn't seem possible - that it's been 20 years, and that this case has stayed unsolved.

    The parking lot garage theory has been largely discounted.

    I would think that the porch globe (not the bulb) was broken at the time the women were taken.

    A consensus is developing that this was a single perpetrator (who actually abducted the women.) He probably had a weapon.

    This should clear up a some of the questions.

    "The kidnapper clearly spent a considerable amount of time out and about from late at night on Saturday, June 6, 1992, into the morning of Sunday, June 7, 1992. The kidnapper had to have been unaccounted for at the time of the crime. Someone who knew or lived with the kidnapper in 1992 likely would have been aware of this fact. In addition, in order to explain his whereabouts on the night of the crime, the kidnapper may have fabricated a story regarding his activities.


    Around the time of the crime, the kidnapper may have spent a considerable amount of time in, or may otherwise have been familiar with, the area of the crime, and he may have frequently been out and about at odd hours. The kidnapper also may have developed an interest in the victims.

    People who know the kidnapper may not believe he is capable of committing this type of crime, and he may not have a history of committing crimes of violence"

    I just read an article about the anniversary. Although they have no new clues, they are hoping modern technology (website tip lines, fb pages and the like) will bring in something new. All this case needs is the perp to let something "slip" and someone to report it.

    That's going to be real tough. They (before and after the fact) know they will go the death house if they let anything slip. One of the individuals in the know needs to turn state's evidence and cut a deal. I'm relatively certain the police know who did it. One of them (with information) has no incentive as he will never get out of prison, and he's said not to be talking, last I heard. The others; I don't know. Maybe. They need a confession.

    yeah, I pretty much agree but there have been some lucky incidents where someone close to the perp FINALLY realizes something was strange about him/her in regards to that night and then reports it. IDK, I just wish this was solved.
    So why do you think LE knows who did this? I read this thread a long time ago and have forgotten a lot.

    There are a group of us who have followed this case for a long time and bits and pieces of information lead some to this conclusion. I can't be more definitive than that but I believe it to be so.

    I am not clear on the motive but I do agree this was more likely than not a sexual assault case. Just exactly how the women were taken is not clear to me absent physical evidence. I suppose it is possible they were enticed out upon facing a weapon. I've long wondered how that door got open. Perhaps the "ruse" theory explains it.

    This is another program on a local channel.

    I need to go back and review. Have forgotten so much about this case. Trying to remember the name of the guy who had an upcoming case about that time who was in trouble for something he did in a graveyard. Did anyone get any info re his involvement in the satanic cultures. Murder is their highest power you know. Shedding blood in taking a life. Three would be even more power. Just thinking in the early morning hours.

    Clay Recla was one of the grave robbers. They were stealing gold fillings and pawning the gold. He had been Suzie's boyfriend at the time and she was to testify at the trial, but disappeared.

    I feel like we need to look at Steven Eugene Garrison and his associates. Garrison is obviously a part of the GJ3. One other one knew him and the third probably did too.
