    VA - Rachel Nicole Good, 20, Elkton, 18 Oct 2003


    Rachel Nicole Good

    Endangered Missing from Elkton, Virginia since October 18, 2003

    Age: 20 -- Height: 5'4" -- Weight: 180 lbs -- Hair Color: Blonde -- Eye Color: Brown

    Rachel has scars on her navel and back. She was 10 weeks pregnant when she disappeared.


    Rachel was last seen in the parking lot behind the Elkton Volunteer Fire Department with friends at approximately 6:00 pm on October 18, 2003. Her friends saw her get into her Dodge Neon and drive away as it got dark. Her car was later found parked at her home. She has never been heard from again.

    Rachel was reportedly romantically involved with a married Elkton police officer at the time of her disappearance, and he is believed to be the father of her unborn child. He originally headed the investigation into her case, but was later placed on administrative leave. A search warrant was executed on his house, and he resigned in 2004.

    Investigators believe Rachel was murdered, but her body has never been found. She left behind three children when she vanished.

    I wanted to post some updates to this case and maybe get her some attention. This story is amazing because of the abuse of the LEO. Rachel was apparently involved with, and carrying the child of, a police officer. I am not sure if he was married or not.

    I have read that he gave her money for an abortion and she just spent it and did not have the procedure. One can assume this made him angry. She then went missing.

    Who gets assigned (or asks to be assigned to her case)? the lover/cop. Goes without saying he should have recused himself. Instead he went to her home several time to investigate. He could have removed evidence. At the very least, we know those first few days are critical to an investigation and that time was lost.

    Her family and friends realized what was going on and reported it to the chief and the B/LEO was suspended. He resigned a few months later and I think I read he moved to Florida and lives with his father.

    Seems like the state police or FBI should have been called in on this because of the involvement of "one of their own". I don't see how this guys friend's and coworkers on the force could have run an unbiased investigation.

    I found this interesting article. It says her parents had her declared dead in 2010 (have to be missing for seven years)

    http://www.whsv.com/news/headlines/R...112659724.html

    Rachel Good Declared Dead

    It's been seven years since she was last seen, but on Thursday morning, family and friends of Rachel Good had some closure.

    A Rockingham County judge declared Rachel Good dead.

    She has been missing since October 2003.

    She was 20 years old and allegedly pregnant when she disappeared.

    The judge's decision comes at a significant time.

    According to the lawyer representing Good's father, Virginia code states, "If a person is missing for seven years, they can be presumed dead."

    The court's decision opens the door for civil action, as well as lawsuits against anyone the family believes is responsible for her death.

    Although her body has not been found, her father believes she is dead.

    "It's like she vanished. She's gone. I know her well enough that if she was alive, she would have contacted somebody. I just feel lost. I'll be glad when it's over with," says Cary Good.

    He adds that, even if he were to win a lawsuit and get compensation from someone responsible for her death, he just wants his daughter back, and "no amount of money can do that."
    I haven't found news if they did try to find justice through the civil court system.

    This article has some more info. Since it isn't from MSM I won't do more than link to it. But it says that there was a grand jury in 2004 and the state police did get involved so that is something.

    This article was written after the 3 girls were found in Cleveland. It mentions that Rachel left behind three children.

    She was 20, the mother of 3 kids and pregnant with another child by a married man. I don't want to sound negative but to me it sounds like she could have led not the most stable life and might have been involved with the wrong crowd, possibly drugs etc.

    If the police officer she was involved with didn't harm her I'm sure she met with foul play on the hands of other "bad people".

    She disappeared it looks like while she was on trial for forgery, uttering (?), and obtaining services by fraud.

    (search here http://ewsocis1.courts.state.va.us/CJISWeb/MainMenu.do )

    It looks like she was supposed to plea on October 24th, but didn't show up as the result for that hearing is "Capias Issued", so a warrant. There is another hearing on August 26th 2004 with result Nolle Prosequi, that she will not be prosecuted.
