    IN - Benita Moore Spears, 23, Gary, 24 Oct 1989


    29 Nov 09

    Family members shared at turns hilarious and touching stories of Benita Moore Spears, who disappeared more than 20 years ago, at a memorial service at Bethlehem Lutheran Church on Saturday night.

    Spears was 23 when she disappeared on Oct. 26, 1989. At the time, the Gary resident was a divorced mother of two sons, working at Inland Steel and attending school at Indiana University Northwest full-time.

    Police suspected her ex-husband, Johnny Spears Jr., of foul play in her disappearance, but no charges were ever filed. He was released from jail the night before his ex-wife's disappearance. He had served prison time for criminal confinement of Benita.
