    AR - Shequenia Burnett (dec'd), & Terkessa Wallace, 34, N Little Rock, 10 Jan 2014

    Terkessa Wallace & Shequenia Burnett

    Both Terkessa and Shequenia went missing on the same day in North Little Rock almost 10 months ago. In the beginning LE did not suspect foul play. Neither women were believed to have any association with one another and their cases were being investigating separately. Within two weeks of their disappearances, officer Shana Cobbs stated "(police) have no reason to believe that they are together at this time."

    However, officers now say they've found a number of red flags and foul play is suspected.

    "North Little Rock police detectives say since there has been no movement on their phones or bank accounts, investigators now suspect foul play" http://www.arkansasmatters.com/story/2-nlr-women-reported-missing/d/story/31t7UfQKY0-qDHH6gZ6bvw


    *Shequenia - mother reported her missing after family found the door to her apartment open Jan 9. Her family has believed it to be foul play from the beginning.

    *Terkessa - drives a white 2009 Toyota Corolla with Arkansas License Plate 290 RHM. She dropped her 5-year-old son off with family and was expected to pick him up later that day but never returned. Her family does not believe she would willingly leave her children. She is a mother of four.

    I read the article and I see similarity but no connection.

    They both disappeared without a trace within a period of a few days of each other. Both are reported to have problems with drugs but we have no clue what kind of drugs or the extent of their alleged use.

    One disappeared from her apartment, the other apparently left or was taken along with her car. No indication that they knew each other, had friends or associates in common or lived close to each other.

    I hope the police know more than they are saying!

    I couldn't see any connection either when reading through what was available online and I wasn't sure if I should post both in one thread or one thread for each. Since it was reported that initially they were investigated separately I assumed that now they may be part of a combined investigation. Also it seems that the media coverage for both are within the same articles.

    The major coincidence of when they went missing may be what points to a possible connection. The reason I say major coincidence is because the Arkansas Crime Information Center (acic.org) currently lists only two missing person reports for females (SB and TW) in the North Little Rock area since 2008 . . . and they are listed missing the same day. (Yet from what I could gather in the media, Shequenia was last seen the 9th and Terkessa was last seen the morning of the 10th.)
    I think I think too much.

    Poor Shenquenia. I hope Turkessa will be found soon.

    Dismembered made me wonder - do we know if Neal Falls was ever in Arkansas? He may be linked to dismembered women in Las Vegas: http://koin.com/2015/07/27/was-sprin...serial-killer/

    I'm curious, I don't mean to be insensitive, but the men who found her leg thought it was a mannequin at first. This made me wonder if it was recent? I'm not sure how quick decomp is in water but I would assume decently quick, and she disappeared over a year ago. If the men thought it was a mannequin's leg, I would assume it had skin on it, unless it was clothed. But I may have missed something.

    It was also in the Arkansas River, which makes me think it was dumped recently since it flows and isn't a lake/pond. It could have also been dumped elsewhere and that water could have flowed into the river.

    I'm going to dig some more, but does anyone want to weigh in?

    RIP Shequenia. This makes me worry for Terkessa even more.

    Good catch! Yes you are right, after all this time (nearly two years), there would be only bones left. If the reporting is correct and those men really thought this was a mannequin based on how the leg looked, she could not be dead for longer than a few days (unless the body was stored frozen elsewhere previously). After that the skin would start to become very discolored (blue/black, etc) and then decompose until only bones are left (a few weeks/months depending on water temperature). Sorry to be graphic!

    But maybe, as you also point out, there was clothing and that gave a different impression.

    It also might be that he said "mannequin" but really had in mind something more of a science-classroom skeleton model? Though if I'm being honest that's a stretch. I just don't like the idea that LE misidentified someone.
