Michelle's ears are pierced. She has a tattoo of the name "Ricky" on one of her fingers and the name "Anthony" surrounded by flowers on her shoulder. She may use the last name Barnett.
Michelle had moved from Ontario, California to Palm Springs, California in late April or early May, with the father of her son. About one month later, she contacted her family and told them she would be returning home to Ontario. That was the last time her family heard from her.
Michelle's' mother received a phone call 2 weeks later by an unknown person telling her that Michelle was in danger. In May of 1995, Michelle's mother received another call from a woman who reportedly told Michelle's mother that one night in August or September of 1994, her younger brother had confessed to an older brother that he had killed Michelle. The older brother threatened the younger brother with going to the police so he killed him. The younger brother was convicted of his brothers murder and is currently serving a 29 year to life sentence. Other information also points to this man as Michelle's murderer, but he has never been charged.
