    I always tend to assume something bad happened to a person if they leave their car behind. In fact, leaving one's car pretty much automatically bumps you from "missing" to "endangered missing" on the Charley Project. I figure that (a) a car is the best means of transportation in this country and (b) they are usually quite valuable, so why would a person leave their car behind if they were just taking off on their own?

    I wonder if there is link to Cynthia Clements murder which happened just a few months prior. She was also abducted from her work and they found her in Pinellas Park.

    Another note, they where the same age.

    1981 Article. She lived with her Brother and he went to the store looking for her and discovered her missing. A calculator and a pencil were on the floor and her purse and cigarettes were in the store. There was no sign of a struggle. He is the one that filed the missing report.

    Front page, scanned off center, you will have to look for the yellow highlighted area and then move up to the beginning of article.
    A mention of Barbara's name in reference to a few women that went missing at that time.

    I am a little too close for comfort on this one-- her car was found within 1.5 miles from my home.

    I'm bumping this up because I think Barbara Barkley might be a match for an unidentified female I'm looking into.

    I noticed Barbara does not appear in NamUs, so I contacted LE to see if they could add her info. I also asked if they have dental/DNA records on Barbara.

    Does anyone know anything more about this case than has been posted here? I've found articles referring to her in connection with other crimes taking place in that area, and a couple of articles about Barbara's disappearance. I'd like to find something more about Barbara herself.

    I know her brother's name is Bernard and I could try locating him as a last resort.

    Does anything about this article strike you as odd?

    http://news.google.com/newspapers?ni...g=6622,2523879

    The man mentioned in the article, JS, is still involved in tennis in Florida. It sounds like he was a little obsessed with Barbara.

    Here is an article I haven't seen before about Barbara's boyfriend, and what was found in her abandoned car:

    Cushions from the store where Barbara worked were found in the back seat. Maybe consensual sex got out of hand and she was killed?

    I found the following sketch of Barbara's possible abductor:

    http://news.google.com/newspapers?ni...rontpage&hl=en

    Scroll over to page 8 and the sketch is in the middle right side. I'm sorry, I can't figure out how to do this any other way!

    Here is a photo of John Brennan Crutchley:

    http://twistedminds.creativescapism....nCrutchley.jpg

    I know there must be a way to get these photos side-by-side, but my limited computer skills aren't up to it.

    Per Wikipedia, John Crutchley (the "Vampire Rapist") was a convicted kidnapper and rapist who was suspected of murdering more than 30 women, but was never tried nor convicted of those crimes. He died in prison of autoerotic asphyxiation.

    I see a resemblance between the two, but it could be my insomnia making my eyes go nuts.

    Does anyone else see a resemblance? I don't know if Crutchley was in Florida in 1981, but I'm going to check him out.

    If I was LE, the bf and the guy who gave the mom his trophy and had a thing for Barbara would be on my list of suspects. Both had some really strange comments to say.

    The boyfriend, Dan Ullian, is married and is a yacht broker.

    The fact that cushions were found in the back of Barbara's car certainly makes it seem like some type of sexual encounter took place.

    The bf said in the article that the cushions where used to cover her up(conceal), I would have thought the angle you did. Kinda surprised me when I read that like, how did he know that? Also, I found him rather controlling in his own statements and especially bothered that he said she was over weight and that she dated other people. He really didnt seem too concerned IMO.

    I agree, his comments about the cushions seemed odd. Why assume they were used to cover her up? He also appeared very interested in the scratches on Barbara's car.

    The comment about her weight gain seemed very inappropriate under the circumstances, IMO.

    He was a few years older than her and maybe he was controlling. If they had been dating as long as the article indicates, he was dating her while she was in high school and he was in his mid-twenties.

    The furniture store where Barbara had worked and from where she disappeared went out of business. This business was owned by her boyfriend's family. Joan Ullian, the boyfriend's mother, said none of them could stand the thought of working there any more.

    I wonder how closely LE looked at Barbara's boyfriend for this?
