    Another article in the Victoria Advocate from Sept. 6, 1978 with more info.
    http://news.google.com/newspapers?id...2696%2C6226996

    Her husband worked at a chemical firm in Palacios and said she was missing when he returned home. The house was open but not ransacked.

    Her car was in front of the house and the car keys were in the house. Purse was on the kitchen table.

    Nothing missing except a pair of blue jeans and two T-shirts. One with the slogan "Pleasure Seeker" and the other had "Where the Hell is Milwaukee" printed on it.

    I also found marriage info on Ancestry that is somewhat interesting. Wanda and her husband were married 15 Jan 1977 and divorced 5 Dec 1978, less than 4 months after she disappeared.

    This article is from 2001 when Priddy was considered as a match for a Jane Doe found in Lyon County, Iowa. Includes an interview with her mother. Kathryn Collins is also mentioned. She went missing from Port Lavaca two years after Wanda.

    Wanda is actually my cousin. While I'm too young to have known her, my dad was very close to her. I recently visited my great aunt and uncle (her parents) in Harlingen and since I've been working to find out as much as I can about her and her case. I haven't talked to my great aunt about it because she has been let down so many times by investigations that have led nowhere. I cannot believe that it's gone unsolved for so long. Thank you all for trying to keep her case alive and sharing what you can. I hope we can find peace for them before they pass away as they are in their late 70's-mid 80's now.

    I had been looking for additional photos of Wanda for quite some time, but I didn't know her maiden name or her high school, so I couldn't find any yearbook photos of her. But from the above article, I noticed that her mother's surname was Miller, and she was from Harlingen Texas (not Port Lavaca). From that, I found that Wanda Priddy was Wanda Miller, and she attended Harlingen HS.

    Here's Wanda (Miller) Priddy's 11th grade portrait from the 1975 Harlingen (TX) High School Yearbook.

    Bump.
    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    The missing and murdered cannot cry out for Justice. It is the duty for the living to do so for them.

    I'm not sure. I just started looking into it. It is speculated that her husband had something to do with it but that has never been proven.
