    I just recently learned about this forum and am particularly interested in learning whether there have been any new leads in Wendy Felton's case. I lived in the area at the time she went missing and knew one of her best friends. Does anyone know how long it took before the classification was changed from a runaway to a missing person? I wonder how that impacted the investigation. I also see this case discussed in conjunction with Tricia Reitler's - but they same quite different to me. In Tricia's case she was outside walking through a desolate area. It seemed to have been a crime of opportunity. Wendy was at home and alone for a brief window of time. Were neighbors investigated? Family and friends that may have known Wendy would be home alone? Were there signs of forced entry or is it presumed she let the person in? I have so many questions and if anybody has ideas of where I can start looking into this case I would love to get some tips. Thank you.

    There is another book about Hall : In With The Devil by James Keene
    I believe Larry abducted 3 women from Springfield, Missouri June 7, 1992. There was a Civil War 'skirmish' in a small town 20 miles away from Springfield that wknd. I don't know how to find out who participated in it and if the organizers keep strict records. Anybody know? The women vanished leaving everything behind, meds, cigs, money, purses. They disappeared roughly b/t the hours of 2 to 8 a.m.

    Missing from Springfield, MO since 06/07/1992

    Where is Sherrill Levitt? https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/345/4/

    Larry has stated he did it in a letter. He also said there were accomplices and 5 other victims the group murdered. You have to google the Q&A to find it, but it's out there online somewhere. It was a book interview I believe.

    I haven't been on in a while. Actually I couldn't find where I had posted at. Couldn't remember the name. But I finally found it so might as well revive this thread again. Keep people thinking about these cases.

    dmadams87, at first glance these cases do not seem related. However, if you consider the fact that Wendy lived about a half mile from a convenience store/ gas station & she very well may have been walking down the road to that store, then the two cases become very similar.

    As far as the battle reenactment theory goes, there wasn't any thing like that going on at the time of Wendy's disappearance. However, I either read or heard from talking to LE involved in the case (can't remember for sure) that there was a guy who was involved with the civil war reenactment scene, who had a big party/get together at his home for the folks who participated in those reenactments. This guy lived in Fairmount, IN. For those that don't know, Fairmount is 4 miles south of Wendy's house. And a lot of folks take the back road to Fairmount which is the same road Wendy's house is on & the convenience store I mentioned earlier.
    This "get together" was held at the same time that Wendy went missing.
    Could Larry Hall have been on his way to or from this party in Fairmount & spotted Wendy walking down the road to the store??? Or even seen her in her yard???
    Something I've always wondered about??

    Also remember hearing about some supposed youth pastor at a church in Gas City that she had started attending & he moved away shortly after her going missing. That sounds a little fishy as well.

    Larry Hall has confessed to being responsible for the Springfield 3 a couple of times but then he recants.
