    Carrie Culberson Blanchester, Ohio 24 yo disappeared in 1996 and presumed dead. Body has never been found. Boyfriend has convicted of the murder and his brother of helping to cover up the murder. A civil suit was filed against the city of Blanchester by the victim's mother for misconduct by the police chief in investigating the murder.

    The two cases are in adjoining counties: Brown County Ohio and Clinton County Ohio.
    I just sent an email to dateline asking that they profile the Cheryl Fossyl case the other day. I was about the same age as she was. I lived everything she missed. Her killers have always been suspected- but according to rumor, there may be some coverup involved in her murder.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    A case that has haunted me for years is the disappearance of 9 year old Dorien Thomas. I lived in the Amarillo / Canyon, TX area at the time, and it's disturbing that this sweet little boy just vanished, and it doesn't seem like there will ever be any answers. It has received a bit of national attention (America's Most Wanted), but still no answers or viable leads. He was riding his bicycle, and they have never even been able to find the bike either. There was an appx. 24 hour delay in reporting him missing (I am not aware of the reason for this... presumably his family thought he was with a friend, I think) They do suspect foul play, and there's a possibility that the man who murdered the child in the bathroom in California is responsible because he may have been in the area at the time... I will never forget this little boy.

    Another case that stays with me is someone I know... gone without a trace after all these years. He disappeared from Canyon, TX in '98 (Fred Moseley)... a gun was missing from his residence (supposedly suicidal), along with him & his vehicle... his vehicle (a black Neon) was found around the same day he was reported missing by his parents - but nothing of him has ever turned up. The FBI was involved, and they determined there was no foul play involved. Obviously, they know more than me, but I heard a lot of things around town at the time of his disappearance about what had really happened to Fred, however, no proof... just people talking. However, the talking always led back to the same person being involved in his death (if in fact a death really occured)... I know that person very well, and certainly wouldn't put it past them in doing something horrible like what was being said. I got in touch with one of the detectives not long ago to see if there was any update in his case, since I no longer live in TX and am no longer associated with the group of people who also knew Fred... and he said that Fred's father recently passed away (his parents were elderly), and they were expecting Fred to possibly show up at the funeral because they feel he is alive and well. However, he did not show up. I check weekly online hoping that his missing page is updated saying he has been found, one way or another.

    And finally... another case that stays with me is the disappearance of 3 females just before Christmas 1974 in Fort Worth, TX. I would have never known about this case, but I moved to Fort Worth in late '99 / early 2000... and was told about it by locals. It is disturbing to think that 3 girls can just disappear like that and never be found... as far as I know, this shopping center / mall - used to be a popular place... but when I lived in Ft. Worth.... it was definitely not a popular place, and I did not feel safe there... it was more of a run down area with just a few stores left, just off I-35.

    Here is a great website dedicated to their disappearance. I think you'll be fascinated just like me after reading all about it. Coincidentally, one of the missing girls has the same last name as the person I wrote about above... Fred Moseley.

    these cases haunt me . . .

    Joseph Rodriguez, who disappeared in 1936 from NYC. His aunt received a note stating that he would be returned, that a doctor had said he "couldn't be moved." The boy was never returned. I wonder if he was hurt by accident, and someone feared getting into trouble, or if he was abducted, molested, and hurt at that time. I fear he probably died at that time, but who knows.
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...ez_joseph.html

    The John David Gosch case. I remember reading about it in papers and magazines when I was a kid; I was around the same age at that time, and it fascinated me. His parents separated; his mother has her theory about what happened and his father thinks she's crazy. I have a friend who lived in that area at that time and said both the parents were "weird," and she doesn't believe Johnny saw his 13th birthday.
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/g/gosch_john.html

    Katherine and Robert Baskin -- I think it's very creepy that they haven't been heard from in all this time. It wasn't as if they were tiny babies that wouldn't remember a past life, either.
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...katharine.html

    Nyleen Kay Marshall -- I believe she is still alive and probably has no idea who she really is.
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...ll_nyleen.html

    The Fandel children -- It's just such a strange case.
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/f/fandel_scott.html

    Jacob Wetterling because the circumstances surrounding his abduction are so bizarre.
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...ing_jacob.html

    Other cases that haunt me are ones in which the missing person was spotted later. A boy who was abducted from his mother (I think), and there is a photo taken of him several years later; Clifford Sherwood, from Canada, who disappeared and some think died, but his mother claims his father had a picture of Clifford that had to have been taken after his disappearance; a boy from Canada who was spotted with a black male in (I think) Delaware; Sabrina Fair, whose photo picturing her looking so sad with her hair badly dyed black -- these things disturb me because it means these children are being kept either against their will or against their knowledge.

    I doubt they would be able to see a small microchip like the ones vets put in your pets that contain identifying info. I would be all for it. I have 5 kids and I worry about something happening to them constantly.

    The thing that stands out to me in the photos in the expression in the eyes. To me the girl does not look scared, but the little boy looks absolutely terrified. I am undecided if the picture is of Tara, I see a resemblance but there also seem to be some differences.

    I agree that the girl in the photo does not look scared, and that the boy is clearly terrified.

    However, the girl does look, to me, angry and defiant. Maybe whatever is going on, she's just had enough.

    I was a senior in high school in 1974, living in Dallas, Texas, and I vividly remember the story about these three missing girls. My parents refused to let me go to the mall with my friends for months after this happened. I never realized that this was a cold case, I'd always assumed someone had been apprehended.

    Does anyone know if any similar type of abduction/disappearance took place in Texas around that time? It seems to me that if someone is capable of abducting and (most likely) killing three youngs girls, he didn't just commit this one crime.

    My college English teacher told us that the prevailing theme in most great literature is man's inhumanity to man. It does seem to be limitless, doesn't it?

    Last December marked the 30th anniversary of that case. They are still missing and no one was ever apprehended or charged. There is another thread in this forum dedicated to those three girls.

    Texas seems to have a lot of missing persons and Unexplained Disappearances. Check out the Doenetwork to see specifics on some of them.

    Fort Worth Three

    What an interesting case! I think it is safe to say someone approached the girls in the parking lot and perhaps someone one of them knew. It is hard to believe no solid witness emergered or bodies discovered.

    Derrick Engebretson. Can you imagine a more horrible twist of fate than to emerge from being lost in the woods only to be abducted by a child killer?

    Derrick Engebretson

    Does anybody have any more information on this case? I understand that it looked like he was picked up in the woods by a stranger. And wasn't there a clue some time later regarding some words written on a rest area bathroom wall?

    The cold cases that haunt me the most are definately the Zodiac killins in California in the 70's and My own dear sister Jan's murder which was never even investigated.
