    VA - Doris Lentz, 31, Arlington, 23 April 1996

    Doris Fay Lentz
    Missing since April 23, 1996 from Arlington, Arlington County, Virginia
    Classification: Endangered Missing

    Vital Statistics

    Age at Time of Disappearance: 31 years old
    Height and Weight at Time of Disappearance: 5'5"; 155 lbs.
    Distinguishing Characteristics: White female. Dark blonde hair; green eyes.

    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Lentz was last seen in Arlington, Virginia around 19:00, after telling a friend that she was going to Fort Washington, Maryland to pick up her daughter on April 23, 1996.
    A week later, police in Southeast Washington D.C. found her blood-spattered Toyota. The door was unlocked and her purse was in full view.
    Her ex-husband was arrested in connection with Doris' disappearance in May 2001 in Indiana. In August 2001, He was charged with her kidnapping and causing her death. He maintains his innocence in the case. He was convicted of the charge in June 2003 and sentenced to life in prison without parole.
    The trial judge took the unusual step of throwing out the jury's verdict; he acquitted the ex-husband in July 2003. However, in September 2004, a court of appeals ordered a new trial for the ex-husband, saying that the trial judge was wrong to overturn the verdict. He was convicted again of the same charges in March 2006.

    If you have any information concerning this case, please contact:

    Arlington County Police Department
    Homicide/Robbery Unit
    Detective John Coale

    Doris still missing

    Doris has been missing for 18 years. She had already been missing for 5 years when her ex-husband (a former naval intelligence officer) was arrested for her kidnapping. She could be anywhere. The case was very complicated and involved several appeals; see the links above.
