    Shelly Sikes, 19 - Car found just over Galveston Causeway 5/24/86; never found body



    Shelley Kathleen Sikes - Age 19, Caucasian, brunette, brown eyes. The University of Texas student who was home for the summer, was last seen just before midnight May 24, 1986. She left her summer job at Gaido's restaurant for her Texas City home but never made it.

    Her car was found on I-45's northbound feeder road, just north of the Causeway. In the deep mud just north of the Santa Fe overpass, the car was blood spattered and the driver's window smashed. Her body was never recovered, but Bayview resident John Robert King and El Lago resident Gerald Peter Zwarst later were convicted of aggravated kidnapping, the most severe charge prosecutors could pursue without a body, in the case.

    RESOLVED.

    Inthoradet Sengsatheuane, 28 Arrested for 2 counts: Kidnapping-East Beach, Galveston


    August 21, 2006

    Inthoradet Sengsatheuane, 28 was arrested for 2 counts of aggravated kidnapping, after allegedly kidnapping two women from East Beach, Galveston at gunpoint.

    http://www.docstoc.com/docs/23700558...e-News-Sept-06

    http://galvestondailynews.com/story....90d9534759ab24

    Four women told police a man approached them on East Beach in Galveston, TX and asked for help in freeing his pickup truck, which had become stuck in the sand nearby. The women reportedly said they were sorry, but they could not help, as none of them thought the small car they had taken to the beach could tow the man’s Chevrolet Avalanche, a large pickup truck.

    The man walked back to his truck. Minutes later, he returned to the women with a gun. The man reportedly ordered the women to help him, and they tried unsuccessfully to push his truck free.

    He took two of the women hostage and drove to a gas station nearby. One of the two women left on the beach called 911 and police arrived shortly.



    I can't find any other information about this case.

    Jeffrey Allan Maxwell - Cops eye "house of horrors" suspect in cold cases (03/2011)



    Published: 14 March 2011 12:39 PM
    Jeffrey Allan Maxwell, 58, is being held on aggravated kidnapping and sex assault charges.

    Investigators are reviewing the cold cases of at least two missing women after a third was rescued from what the Parker County sheriff called Jeffrey Allan Maxwell’s “house of horrors” in Corsicana. While known as a creep elsewhere, Maxwell had reinvented himself in Corsicana. He was the vice president of the Kiwanis Club and frequently got his picture in the paper for the charity's good deeds. He was about to become president.

    When he met detectives outside his home, he said he knew nothing about the missing woman. But then the woman ran from the home, screaming "I'm here! I'm here!" Inside, police would find what they later called a house of horrors.

    <Modsnip>

    The woman had been bound, raped and probably tortured, said Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler, adding, “I hope to never see it again.”

    An affidavit listed a bed with chains, leather restraints and sexual devices among items seized from the home. An investigator connected to the case reported seeing an electric winch used for stringing up animal carcasses.

    <Modsip>

    Asked if the woman’s abduction looked carefully planned, the sheriff said it did.

    Fowler said investigators searched Maxwell’s house with cadaver dogs looking for old bodies, but found none.

    He said, however, his department is now re-examining a case from 2000, when Amelia Smith, 51, disappeared around the time her house and car near Azle caught fire.

    I'd just like to point out that this guy was free from the time of his wife's disappearance in the early 1980's up until his arrest in March of 2011. If anyone has information about what kind of work he did, or whether or not he traveled, etc, please post it. I can't find information about his occupation, but see that he resided in the Dallas Fort Worth area.

    We can see that he is a repeat offender of a serious nature, especially having taken the time and effort to construct a concealed torture chamber in his home...

    Cops seek leads on mystery torso from 1971

    By Scott E. Williams

    The Daily News
    Published January 28, 2008
    GALVESTON In 1971, the disappearance of two Webster girls last seen on 61st Street in Galveston launched an investigation that ended in an arrest and the discovery of a skeletal torso in a Pasadena bayou.

    More than 36 years later, investigators say they believe the wrong man was convicted, and the torso did not belong to the missing kid police had identified.

    Sharon Shaw and Rhonda Johnson, both 14, had come from Webster to Galveston in summer 1971 to surf. The pair was last seen alive Aug. 4, 1971, waiting for a friend to pick them up on 61st Street. The friend later told investigators the girls were gone when she arrived.

    Some suspect serial killer in 1971 Galveston deaths

    21 bodies, and no clear answers
    Some now wonder if the right man died in prison for the 1971 slayings of 2 teens
    Suntanned and skinny, 14-year-olds Rhonda Renee Johnson and her best friend, Sharon Shaw, vanished from Galveston in 1971 in what some now suspect was part of a serial killer's murderous spree.

    A few months later, two more surfer girls, just 15, disappeared after catching a ride in Galveston near Stewart Beach.

    Monday's Daily Mail has an article which may be of some interest - or at least serve as a primer for those who don't know the case(s):

    The mystery of the Texas Killing Fields... And how one man may
    hold the answer to the 30 young women found murdered there

    ---
    The uncertainty has haunted Tim Miller, whose daughter Laura Miller was kidnapped and murdered in 1984 when she was just 16 years old.

    'One thing worse than having a murdered child, and I know this for a fact, it's knowing that they're out there dead somewhere and never being able to say goodbye. Never having that little bit of closure,' he said.

    Seventeen months after her disappearance, her body was found in a secluded oil field but her killer was never found.
