MO - Shirley McKeown, 71, Kansas City, 24 Aug 2002
Shirley McKeown was 71 when she vanished Aug. 24, 2002. Police found her car 10 days later with enough of her blood inside that the medical examiner said she could not have survived. Police are investigating the disappearance as a homicide.
“There are people out there who know who did this, and they are letting them run free,” Bridget McKeown said while meeting with reporters to generate renewed interest in the case. “I don’t know why.”
Family and friends have contributed a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest. Anyone with information is asked call the TIPS Hotline at (816) 474-TIPS (474-8477).
McKeown, 45, believes her mother was attacked as she headed to her house. Police found her mother’s car, a Cadillac, hidden by a tarp and tree branches near 33rd Street and Highland Avenue in Kansas City. Detectives questioned an 18-year-old man who had been driving the car and had some of the woman’s possessions. But he has not been charged in the case.
Shirley McKeown disappeared while driving to her daughter's house on Aug. 24, 2002. Two weeks later, her white Cadillac was found under a tarp several blocks from her home.
Due to the large amount of blood inside the vehicle, the case became a homicide. However, McKeown's body was never found.

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

Families ask for help finding bodies of their loved ones
Shirley McKeown, age 70, left her home at 9129 E. 44th St. on the morning of Aug. 24, 2002. She was never seen again. Her car, however, was located Sept. 3, 2002, abandoned at 33rd and Highland with a very large amount of blood inside. DNA testing confirmed it to be Shirley’s. The car was hidden behind trees and covered with a tarp. The personalized Missouri license plates, “MCQ-N,” had been removed, and police have never recovered them.
