VA - Barbara Jean Monaco, 18, Virginia Beach, 20 Aug 1978

Barbara Jean Monaco
Missing since August 20, 1978 from Virginia Beach, Virginia
Classification: Endangered Missing

Vital Statistics

Date Of Birth: August 19, 1960
Age at Time of Disappearance: 18 years old
Height and Weight at Time of Disappearance: 5'4"; 110 lbs.
Distinguishing Characteristics: White female. Brown, shoulder length hair; brown eyes.
Clothing: Long sleeved, yellow shirt; blue jeans; a brown belt and wooden clogs.
Medical: She had just been sick with Guillane-Barre syndrom.
Dentals: Available

Circumstances of Disappearance

On August 20, 1978, Barbara Monaco drove to the beach from Derby, Connecticut with her older sister. The girls registered at the Old Aloah Motel on 15th Street. They planned to stay for a week.

In the wee hours of August 23, Barbara Jean left her sister and set out on foot for Peabody's where she had a date with a bartender. Somewhere along Pacific Avenue, she vanished. Witnesses told police they saw her get into a car.

The spring after her disappearance, an informant came forward, seeking a reward. He told of local guys who drove Barbara Jean to a cottage near Oceana where they raped and strangled her. They dumped her body in the water, he said. The informant reportedly passed a police polygraph test, but prosecutors declined to offer him immunity in return for his testimony because they thought he was involved in the killing.

This case, and the other two listed, brings to mind the murders of Lynn Seethaler and Janie Pietropola, both 19. The two were vacationing in Va Beach when, on June 30th of 1973, their bodies were discovered in the cottage they had rented in Farrar's Tourist Village (10th St and Atlantic Ave). Both had been shot, strangled and stabbed. Pietropola had been sexually assaulted; Seethaler had not.
The case is still carried by the Va Beach police as unsolved.

When viewing the VA Beach Police website, I was surprised at the number of unsolved murders---More than 60 cases.

Barbara Monaco Photos?

These photos were found in serial killer Rodney Alcala's storage unit by police. I believe they are B. J. Monaco.

Now, if a body is found or pulled from storage that matches Monaco's NamUs profile, which includes dental records, DNA samples and other information, the database will make the link.

Bumping Case Up...

This case is still unsolved. It seems to be one of many similar cases in the Virginia Beach area.

The Charley Project has more details on the case here:

http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...o_barbara.html

It seems that the main suspect in the case, as said above stopped cooperating with authorities, because he was not granted immunity from prosecution. Charley Project said that he agreed to take a polygraph test, but committed suicide outside his apartment only hours after making the statement. Wow!

Note that this is different from the post above that says the informant reportedly passed a polygraph test. Or maybe Charley Project is referring to a second polygraph test, which the informant never took, before taking his own life.
