    IL - Patricia ‘Stacy’ Spahn, 23, East Dubuque, 11 February 1975

    For three decades, investigators were told that the 23-year-old Spahn, of East Dubuque, Ill., might have been buried underneath the pool after she disappeared in 1975. Officers never had enough evidence to warrant a search.

    Spahn disappeared on Feb. 11, 1975, after she left a local lounge and was believed to be headed to a party. She was last seen about 2 a.m. walking with two men.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    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?

    Circumstances
    Spahn disappeared on Feb. 11, 1975, after she left a local lounge and was believed to be headed to a party. She was last seen about 2 a.m. walking with two men.

    For three decades, investigators were told that the 23-year-old Spahn, of East Dubuque, might have been buried underneath the pool at the former Best Western Dubuque Inn after she disappeared in 1975. Officers, however, never had enough evidence to warrant a search.

    Developers now plan to build a Hampton Inn at the site. Planned demolition of the hotel began in mid-July 2005, and on August 3, a police investigator was on hand to observe whether Spahn's remains were under the pool. Besides excavation of the swimming pool, additional footage underneath and along the sides of the pool were excavated. Police stated that, ‘‘Nothing was found in the area excavated to indicate that Ms. Spahn had been buried there,’’

    Here is what the Doenetwork has on her. Note the discrepancy between which state she disappeared from; Iowa vs Illinois. Two other girls disappeared from Iowa in 1975, as well.

    From how it looks on a map the city is in Illinios and Iowa. The city appears to be a border city so the possiblilty of them being connected would be good.

    I looked back at Doe and they have listed that the "two men" she left the bar with were found and refused to take polygraphs. Apparently it and Charley Project have the only info found -- just a bunch of mismatched stuff on google.

    DUBUQUE (KWWL) -Unsolved homicides and missing persons cases can be frustrating for not only local law enforcement agencies, but grieving families searching for answers. One group in Dubuque is looking to draw attention to those unsolved homicides and missing persons cases in Dubuque through a day of remembrance.
