    Kimberly's Texas Missing Person's Clearinghouse Info

    Missing Person Flyer For Kim. Is there anybody here on WS who is in Dallas, Killeen, or Austin, TX that would be willing to print out some flyers and hang them in your area? If you can't print them I could print some out and snail mail them to you.

    Hey Robyn-

    Great work on posting all of this information on Kimberly. According to the data that I can access, I beleive the spelling is
    THOMPKINS, DALZELL TYRONE

    The last address I have for him is in Irving which is a suburb of Dallas. It also appears that he was at some time living with a girl 20 years younger than him. Different last name. I don't know if that could be a daughter or a girlfriend. She was born in 1984.

    Hey!
    Thank you for the spelling correction of Dalzell's name. We got the information I posted from Kim's mom. She is a member over at SKM. I am trying to spread the word as much as possible. Do you know of any good forums I can post to or any media that might be willing to cover her story? Thanks!

    ETA: Thank you for the other information you provided on Dalzell.

    I have emailed Debbie Denmon at www.wfaa.com before about the lady with amnesia and she was very responsive.

    Other than that there is

    You could also try contacting Steve Blow at the Dallas Morning News. He's a well-read metro columnist who would probably be interested in a story like this. Or maybe he could pass it along.

    A MILLION thank you's for finding the correct spelling of his name. I know RK and I had a discussion how he spelled it, and Kimberly's mother wasn't sure of the spelling. That helps a lot.

    And thank you RK for starting this thread for Kimberly. I have spoken with her mother on several occasions and it always breaks my heart because she says that she hopes that God gives her another day each day so that she can find out where her daughter is. Her mother is a lovely woman, and I would so like to bring closure to her family.

    Thanks again. You guys ROCK!

    I thought to look up his criminal record on PublicData.com and according to that website, he doesn't have one. So he may have been abusive but apparently he never got caught by any of the agencies that publicdata.com gets information from.

    I searched for him on myspace. I was also contacted by Kimberly's cousin on myspace. I have asked him to join us on someoneknowsme - he is in his 40's so he would possibly be able to give us some additional info about Kimberly. *crosses fingers*

    I noticed a billboard today and was reminded that there is a DJ here on a predominately rap station named Skip Cheatham. He's been around forever. Can you ask Kim's mother if that guy is related to them? That would be an excellent source of publicity.

    This says he came to Dallas in 94 so they probably aren't related, but i think he's probably a major player in the African American radio market here. Maybe he would feel a connection since they share the same last name and want to publicize her disappearance.

    That's a great idea contacting him. I'll ask her mother if they are related.
