Interesting comments in the topix link.

There is precious little information in any of the sources.

"His sister says he was last seen walking near the 37th Street levy in Cairo. His sister says he suffers from depression and is on nerve medicine.

She also says her brother has never disappeared like this before."

Wonder if maybe she found something out about her brother's disappearance?

So, they disappeared 10 blocks away (27th and 37th) from each other? This is really weird.

Reminds me of another case here on WS...

Hey--wasn't there another instance of a second family member disappearing mysteriously years after the first? I think the relationship was father and son though IIRC.

Um... and look at this:

" Police in Cairo are concerned about a man who has been missing since October 28."

He went missing on the 28th of the month.

She went missing on the 28th of the month.


Weird indeed.

I found her daughter's FB page, she has a few posts about mom being missing w/some interesting comments. I can't remember if I can link to her page.


Also, if you do a search for Sandra's name + "topix", there are a number of hits for forums in other states like Missouri and Kentucky. Lots of threads from the last several months, some where she appears to be chatting in them and others she is the subject. They get pretty nasty. Since it's topix I can't get into it much more here but hopefully the proper authorities have all of the information they might need if foul play is involved. The comments and the posters come across very hostile. If there's any suspicion to begin with in her disappearance these conversations are very interesting.

From reading the Topix thread, it sounds like there may have been some sort of an abusive relationship in the picture. I wonder if Sandra was involved with this same man back in 2010 when her brother disappeared, and if there's any link between any of them and this other man who also vanished recently. How scary for the family- not only to have 2 precious loved ones vanish, but they have to be wondering about their own safety as well at this point.

Unfortunately, the family has been through this before. In the fall of 2010, Sandy's twin brother Kenny went missing in Cairo as well. He's never been found. Donna and her brother Paul feel the disappearances aren't a coincidence.

After two incidents in less than three years, the family is considering leaving Cairo. They're worried it could happen again. In the meantime-- they hope to figure out what happened to Sandy.

I do think their disappearances are related. I do not think either committed suicide.

To lend some perspective to the Topix discussion, this is what I would consider a "normal" family. One of their cousins is the local States Attorney for Alexander County. Another of their cousins was mayor of Cairo about 10 years ago. Their roots go deep in southern Illinois.

Justice4cairo...what do you think the connection is between them. A person or group of people? What do you think happened to Kenny? What does the boyfriend think happened? Has anyone in the family spoken to him?


Also if she is smoker and she was going for a walk around the lake...wouldn't she have taken her cigs with her?

Sandy was not living with her husband at the time of her disappearance. She was living with her niece and sister.

St Mary's Park is considered to probably be the safest place in Cairo to walk. There are few sidewalks on either side of the streets surrounding the park. Everyone walks in the street around the park and there is a group of walkers who daily walk around the park. There is a ball field and a playground at the park. Sandy did a mid-day walk daily around the perimeter of the park. She walked in the street.

She was seen walking on the north end of the park in the street so we know she went for a walk. She was not an athletic person so it is unlikely she walked any farther than around the park, unlikely she was over on Park and 27th as reported. She was not an avid walker, not keen on exercise. She was a smoker. Why would she leave the house without her smokes and phone? The only thing that makes sense to me is that she left the house in a hurry. Perhaps someone at the house said something to upset her and she slammed out?

Went back out to the Topix link and checked what people are saying about Sandra's disappearance (since I can't find anything in MSM that's recent). Interesting stuff, to say the least. The forum has grown in recent days, and Websleuths is mentioned more than once. There is reference to 3 members of Sandra's family- Jimmy, Kenney and her father- who have all either gone missing or have met with foul play. It's all rumor, of course, but if true, cannot possibly be a complete coincidence.

I asked someone who knows the family well and was told these are not rumors.

Apparently her father was murdered when she was an infant. This person seems to recall his body was found in water with his hands and feet bound. Said murder was just a fact of life in Cairo and noone is ever prosecuted.

A brother was murdered 20 - 25 years ago; recalls it was ruled suicide in spite of evidence to the contrary. Said again that murder was just a fact of life in Cairo and noone is ever prosecuted.

Coincidence?

Link from 2010 about twin brother's disappearance: http://www.kfvs12.com/Global/story.asp?S=13471171

Quote:
Kenny Farris is about 6-feet tall and weighs about 200 pounds; has gray hair, brown eyes, and a gray beard.

His sister says he was last seen walking near the 37th Street levy in Cairo. His sister says he suffers from depression and is on nerve medicine.

She also says her brother has never disappeared like this before.
ETA: Ah, silly me. I was so busy googling for info I didn't notice this link had already been posted. Nothing in NamUs regarding Kenney; looked for any likely UIDs that might have floated down the river from Illinois through states southward but saw none.

The husband, William Robert Smith, is a registered sex offender, victim under 13.

The Cairo police dept searched his house 2 times. Do not know what they removed.
