    I'd like to know more about her husband. Apartment hunting could be stressful and could lead to a heated argument...which could go either way, i.e. violence or a voluntary disappearance. If the husband didn't come home that night, Darlene could have decided he was a cad and a bounder and left, but if she never resurfaced, then my money's on domestic violence.

    Darlene DeWolff Polizzi has been missing for fifty years. Her family misses her. She may have been the victim of Raymond Alves, who is an already incarcerated suspected serial killer.
    Her nieces called her “Aunt Dee Dee.”
    There is some belief that Darlene might have been the victim of a serial killer. Raymond Alves worked with Darlene’s husband at a sheet metal plant and Darlene was friends with Alves’ wife. Some of the suspicion came about due to the highly suspicious move of the Alves family the day after Polizzi disappeared. Alves was convicted of raping a teenager in Fair Lawn and pushing another teenage girl off a bridge in Clifton in 1976.

    He served 23 years of a 47-year sentence and was released from prison in 2000. Authorities suspected that the murders of seven teenage females whose bodies were found in Bergen County, NJ, might be laid at his doorstep, that he might be a serial killer.
    The AP reported that he claimed to have raped and killed more than a dozen women. Law enforcement officials also say Alves remains a suspect in the unsolved slayings of six young women in Bergen and Passaic counties between 1966 and 1976.
    There aren’t a lot of remaining family members of Darlene Polizzi, but they miss Aunt Dee Dee and have continued to look for her and urge that official channels remain open and looking for her.
    The police also did not have DNA until they obtained it from the last surviving sister, who passed last year. One niece wasn’t born when her Aunt Dee Dee disappeared but she is among those who still wants to know what happened to her.
