    TN - Police request info on any missing black females, Knoxville region, 19751984

    This is a request for missing persons reports. Possibly they might be interested in information on UID or mysteriously deceased black females from the surrounding area as well, if they're not already readily available in NamUs or similar. A lot of little jurisdictions only list their MPs and cold case UIDs on the local city or county PD website.

    KCSO Cold Case Unit Asking for Help in Missing Persons Cases (February 11, 2014)

KCSOs Cold Case Unit is working a 1984 case where they are looking into statements made by known serial killer, Jerry Marcus, in which he confessed to killing several women in the Knoxville area.

    Marcus lived in Knoxville from 1975 until 1984 and attended and played football for Knoxville College from 1975 until 1979. Marcus has already confessed and been indicted for the murder of Francine Davis, who was killed in October 1984 in Knoxville. It is believed that Marcus may have killed at least two others in the Knoxville area. The Cold Case Unit is looking into any unsolved homicides from 1975 until 1984 to see if he may have been involved.

    If anyone remembers Jerry Marcus or any of his associates or places he frequented, or knows of any black females who disappeared during this time, they are asked to contact KCSOs Cold Case Unit at (865) 215-2243.

    Marcus is currently in jail in Mississippi on other homicide charges where he has confessed to killing at least seven women throughout Alabama, Mississippi, and Tennessee from 1970 until 1987.

    https://identifyus.org/en/cases/1588 - Found on Valentine's Day in 1975. Found 227 miles away from Knoxville.
    UP1587 - Found in 1977, but could have died as early as 1975. Found 381 miles away from Knoxville.
    UP5254 - Found in 1990. NamUs doesn't give an estimated year of death, so it could very well be between 1975 and 1984. Found 207 miles away from Knoxville.

    Veda Powers is missing from Nashville, which is only 180 miles from Knoxville. She's been missing since 1982 and foul play is suspected.
