    TN - Jennifer & Adrianna Wix, Cross Plains, 24 March 2004 *CHAIN OF HOPE MARCH 29TH*

    Age Progression photos of Adrianna: http://i124.photobucket.com/albums/p...driannaAP4.jpg ; http://media.photobucket.com/image/a...edto7.jpg?o=72

    Jennifer and Adrianna Wix have been missing since March 2004. We have a thread for them in the Missing Forum and it was suggested we have some fresh eyes look at their case. The fifth anniversary of their disappearance is fastly approaching and their family is still searching. Jennifer's mom is a member of Websleuths and I'd love for us to give her peace by bringing her daughter and granddaughter home. Here is a brief summary of the case as it was presented in 2005:

    "CRIME LIBRARY

    Wednesday, March 24, 2004 was not like any other day. Two-year-old Adrianna was in her bedroom, unaware of all that was happening. Her mother, 22-year-old Jennifer Wix and her live-in boyfriend, William Joseph Benton, were involved in a heated argument. That night, a very upset Jennifer called her mother, Kathy Holloway.

    "She was upset," said Kathy, "and I offered to come and get her, but she felt she could handle the situation." That was the last time Kathy heard from her daughter. Adrianna and Jennifer had disappeared.

    That Saturday, Kathy Holloway contacted the Robertson County Sheriff's Department to report she had not heard from or seen her daughter and grandchild since Wednesday. "We just want to hear from her," said Kathy. "We wish she would get in contact with us so we would know that she's all right. I just want her to call and say Mom, I'm not missing, I'm okay. If that's what it is, that's all I want to hear. She don't have to say where she's at if she doesn't want us to know. If she wants to be alone, just let us know." Jennifer is very close to her family and always stayed in touch with them two or three times a week. It was not like her to not let them know her whereabouts.

    Local authorities treated the case as a missing persons case and immediately questioned Benton about Adrianna and her Jennifer. Initially, Benton reported that he last saw the missing child and mother on Thursday when she left with a friend he did not know. Benton changed his story upon further questioning and told the authorities he dropped off Adrianna and Jennifer at an Exxon gas station around 9:30 that evening, but he could not remember which station it was. The more he was questioned the more Benton's stories continued to change. Investigators from the sheriff's office followed up on every lead Benton provided, but only met dead-ends. Twenty-three-year-old Benton was released but has not been dismissed as a suspect.

    As the weeks passed, posters and fliers were circulated throughout the county and a mass search was conducted. Friends, family members, neighbors and residents were questioned, with the hopes of gaining leads on Adrianna and her mother's whereabouts. Cadaver dogs were even used to search Benton's family's property and surrounding woods. "An intense and extensive investigation has been executed and is still underway," reported the Robertson County Sheriff's Office.

    It has been five moths since Adrianna and her mother disappeared. Adrianna's entire family has been making public pleas for the safe return of her and Jennifer. They even hired private detectives to investigate the case. Adrianna goes by the nickname Nina and has a birth mark on her thigh. A $15,000 Reward is being offered for any information leading to the recovery of Adrianna and Jennifer Wix. Anyone with information should immediately contact the Robertson County Sheriff's Department, Detective Mike Carlyle ( 615-384-7971). Or call Texas EquuSearch (281-309-9500, toll-free 877-270-9500)." http://www.crimeandjustice.us/forums...topic=141&st=0

    I only read one and a half of the pages on topix out of 193, I believe.

    From an outside point of view, there is so much fingerpointing from both sides of this case. One insists that the concrete has been xrayed and another says no it hasn't, both swearing that the report states it was/wasn't.

    With Benton changing his story each time he is interrogated, makes him look guilty, but then there is a twist, Jennifer's mother is said to have threatened to take her baby, which would show reason for her to go into hiding. I am hesitant to believe that Jennifer's mother would threaten to take the baby and not want to help Jennifer escape this type of relationship also, unless Jennifer was in the drug scene as Benton is said to be. If this did take place, this would make it look like Jennifer left and went into hiding.

    One person states that Jennifer lied to her mother about some of the abuse, I'm sorry but if a man put a gun in my mouth I would be "hauling a**" away from him and taking my baby with me to safety.

    There was one post from the "supposed" Lt. to one of the posters asking that she contact him regarding a comment she made.

    Was there any evidence in the home to suggest something bad happened to Jennifer and the baby?

    This is exactly the viewpoint that the boyfriend's family (father) is hoping that everyone has! It just infuriates me that this is his main objective!

    I can tell you about the concrete......for a year or two the people at UT Knox who did it were telling us that they had not brought any equipment to the property.......then a couple of months ago a dr from there finally called and said that he was the one who went and that they did take the ground penetrating radar equipment there but there were certain areas that it was useless.

    As far as me threatening to take the baby.......that is just simply not true......before Jenn moved in with these people we discussed with her how critical it was for her not to take the baby to inappropriate places, her family all agreed that she could go where she wanted to but that we were there to watch after the baby for her if she felt she had to see this boy because we all agreed his home just was not an appropriate place for Adrianna. This was when she was dating him..........she moved in with him in Dec.......no such action was ever taken and it was never discussed with her again in any way. Her family was still helping her out when she needed it with Adrianna and supported her as a mother completely. If you think about it, he was the only issue that any family member had with the baby's welfare, so if she were going to break off with him, no one would have been anything but over joyed to have them both out of a bad situation. So mr b's theory doesn't hold water!


    Jennifer didn't lie about the gun incident.........the day it happened and she called me she was soooo scared.........I know her well enough to know when I hear fear in my childs voice and I took it soooo seriously that I left my career and moved across the country. She never told me that she lied nor anyone else that I know of........this is more propaganda from B. Now, why in the world she would ever go back to him is something that still baffles me, more than anyone can imagine!


    We will never know about evidence in the home, because an immediate search was not done. LE done, what they called, a "walk through"......and that's it for months. The last time that Jenn talked to anyone in her family she told them that little J was coming home from work and they were going on a picnic to talk over things.......so IMO, IF something happened to her, it did not necessarily happen in that house anyway.

    Thank you for helping with the girls case.......all the fresh eyes that I can get on it the better!

    I think that either place is ok, but I believe that some were wanting to move it here to cold cases because of the sleuthers here. Also, you may expect to see trouble makers from topix come here as they are lurking here but not posting.

    Vigil planned for missing Wix girls

    Do you remember what you were doing this time 5 years ago? Kathy Holloway can tell you exactly what she was doing minute by minute. Five years ago on March 25, 2004, Kathy’s life changed forever when she learned her daughter and granddaughter were missing. The days that followed are a blur, but there are days she relives in slow motion over and over again.


    Jennifer Kay Wix and her 2 year old daughter Adrianna Nikol were living close by with Jennifer’s boyfriend and his family. They had a somewhat stormy relationship and Kathy did not approve of Jennifer dating the boyfriend, but had recently realized that she was going to have to come to accept the relationship in order to maintain the close relationship she had always shared with her daughter. On Wednesday evening, March 24, 2004, Jennifer called Kathy and was very upset. Things were not going well and Jennifer called her mother for advice and comfort. Kathy offered to come pick Jenn and Adrianna up and bring them back to her house but Jennifer assured her that everything would be ok. Jennifer told Kathy she was going to bed and would talk to her the next day. That was the last time Kathy heard her daughters voice.


    The next day Jennifer did call and speak to her Aunt and her Father. During both calls Jennifer expressed her concern over her relationship with her boyfriend and his family. On Friday Kathy could not get Jennifer off her mind and began to worry. When she tried to contact Jennifer she was told that Jennifer and her boyfriend had gotten into an argument on Thursday evening. Jennifer’s boyfriend claims that Jennifer asked him to take her and the baby to a nearby gas station on I65 at exit 112. He says he dropped her there and pulled across the street where he observed her get into the back seat of a white four door car. He was very vague about the description of the vehicle and says he left before he could see who was in the vehicle or which direction they went. He also reports that Jennifer came back to his house on Friday in order to pick up her income tax money. She was said to be driving the same vehicle but did not have Adrianna with her. His parents were not home to give her the money so she left and said she would be back on Saturday to get it. She did not return.


    To this day no one has heard from Jennifer. Jennifer was very close to her family and had no reason to leave. Adrianna had plans to spend the night with Kathy the weekend they disappeared. Jennifer and Adrianna’s social security numbers were flagged after they were reported missing and have not been used. Jennifer and Adrianna’s clothes and personal belongings were not taken, Adrianna’s car seat was not taken and Jennifer had no money.


    Lt. Don Bennett with the Robertson County Sheriff’s Department is the lead investigator in this case. There are still leads being investigated at this time and the case is still an open case. The official status of the case is “missing and presumed dead.” According to Lt. Bennett he has worked several homocide and murder cases which have all been resolved. This is the only open case he has; and he says he does intend on solving this case. He feels that if this case had happened in a larger city where there were more resources, the case would have been solved already. He asks that if you have any information on this case to please contact him at the Robertson County Sheriff’s Department at 615-384-7971.


    There will be a vigil held on Saturday, March 21st, at 2:00, at Wal Mart in Springfield along with a balloon release to honor the girls.

    I just came across this story today. It was mentioned that where the boyfriends house once stood, a new house has been built. Thats a lot of construction work and obviously they would have had to remove debris via a dumpster, etc. Is it possible that if he had buried Jen and her baby girl he could have snuck them out in the dumpsters? Gosh, I hate even mentioning this as I know her mother reads this and its upsettng to even type, I cant imaging reading or thinking of this but where would debris have been hauled to in that area?? Was that ever looked into or considered?

    I know what you mean by it being hard to type knowing Kathy is here, but she does love the help. That is one theory I've not heard before! When Kathy has gotten past tomorrow's vigil for the fifth year the girls have been missing, I'm sure she'll see your thoughts and perhaps might be helpful to the case! Thank you for showing an interest! {{{HUGS}}}

    glitterghost, Excellent points !

    I'll put my money on the jealous BF.

    It's been proven time and time again, the last person to see/be with the missing person generally holds the answers.

    Another theory: possibly buried both under the killers old house or on his property or his relatives property...imo....

    It takes a cold blooded monster to murder an innocent 2 yr. old child. Did this guy pass a Lie Detector test 5 yrs. ago?..

    You would think that once the authorities got wind of this new house being built,they would have been all over the area and the Dumpsters with Cadaver dogs.

    I wonder if he buried them under the old house and built the new one over the top of them insuring they would never be found. How upsetting that thought is. But that would be the perfect way to never have them found. Any thoughts on that idea??

    That is a possibility!

    They also dug a well and there seems to be an issue as to whether it was ever properly inspected by the county! But I have to think it was because I'm sure someone would have called and complained and the county is aware of it by now. I hope! There are SO MANY questions in this case!
