    Coming up on 36 years. I wonder how thoroughly the common-law husband was investigated. She had had an argument with him and was pregnant with twins...doesn't sound good

    I heard somewhere, maybe on this site, that the two most dangerous times for a woman are when she is trying to leave a relationship and when she is pregnant. I agree that the first place to look is the common-law husband.

    40 year anniversary approaching...

    This case remains unsolved. Next month will mark 40 years since Velma Marie Duncan and her two unborn babies disappeared.
