Missing Person Flyer For Kim. Is there anybody here on WS who is in Dallas, Killeen, or Austin, TX that would be willing to print out some flyers and hang them in your area? If you can't print them I could print some out and snail mail them to you.

Hey Robyn-

Great work on posting all of this information on Kimberly. According to the data that I can access, I beleive the spelling is
THOMPKINS, DALZELL TYRONE

The last address I have for him is in Irving which is a suburb of Dallas. It also appears that he was at some time living with a girl 20 years younger than him. Different last name. I don't know if that could be a daughter or a girlfriend. She was born in 1984.

Hey!
Thank you for the spelling correction of Dalzell's name. We got the information I posted from Kim's mom. She is a member over at SKM. I am trying to spread the word as much as possible. Do you know of any good forums I can post to or any media that might be willing to cover her story? Thanks!

ETA: Thank you for the other information you provided on Dalzell.

I have emailed Debbie Denmon at www.wfaa.com before about the lady with amnesia and she was very responsive.

Other than that there is

http://cbs11tv.com/
http://www.nbc5i.com/index.html
http://www.myfoxdfw.com/myfox/


You could also try contacting Steve Blow at the Dallas Morning News. He's a well-read metro columnist who would probably be interested in a story like this. Or maybe he could pass it along.

A MILLION thank you's for finding the correct spelling of his name. I know RK and I had a discussion how he spelled it, and Kimberly's mother wasn't sure of the spelling. That helps a lot.

And thank you RK for starting this thread for Kimberly. I have spoken with her mother on several occasions and it always breaks my heart because she says that she hopes that God gives her another day each day so that she can find out where her daughter is. Her mother is a lovely woman, and I would so like to bring closure to her family.

Thanks again. You guys ROCK!

I thought to look up his criminal record on PublicData.com and according to that website, he doesn't have one. So he may have been abusive but apparently he never got caught by any of the agencies that publicdata.com gets information from.

I searched for him on myspace. I was also contacted by Kimberly's cousin on myspace. I have asked him to join us on someoneknowsme - he is in his 40's so he would possibly be able to give us some additional info about Kimberly. *crosses fingers*

I noticed a billboard today and was reminded that there is a DJ here on a predominately rap station named Skip Cheatham. He's been around forever. Can you ask Kim's mother if that guy is related to them? That would be an excellent source of publicity.

http://www.k104fm.com/default.asp?pid=5716&ablog=116

This says he came to Dallas in 94 so they probably aren't related, but i think he's probably a major player in the African American radio market here. Maybe he would feel a connection since they share the same last name and want to publicize her disappearance.

I wanted to make a correction to what was posted about Kim's car.

She was driving her 1988 (not 1980 as was posted) burgundy Sunbird to her cousin's apartment to do laundry and never showed up.

I got a message from Kim's mother - the cousin that contacted me on myspace is the same cousin who was the last to see her. I haven't heard back from him after my message the other night. I'll keep you posted.

Jaded,
Were you able to find out if Skip Cheatham (the DJ) is related to Kim?

America's Most Wanted: Please write to ask them to cover Kimberly's story - I think it would be great to get as many folks as possible to send a letter off to AMW and ask them to do a show on Kimberly's case.

This is where we can send our letters off to!

Submitting Cases


How do I submit a case to AMW?
Cases to be profiled on AMW are carefully chosen from the hundreds of requests we receive every week. Due to the high volume of requests we often need to make tough decisions when it comes to choosing which cases to profile. We make every attempt to cover cases from all parts of the country and all type of crimes. Our ultimate goal is to give a voice to the maximum number of victims possible and help find missing children and bring fugitives to justice.


If you would like to have a case considered for the show, please send all facts to:


America's Most Wanted
PO Box Crime TV
Washington DC 20016


Please make sure to note whether there is a known fugitive charged with the crime, or whether the perpetrator is yet to be identified. If charges have been filed, please note the police agency that filed the charges. It is also helpful to let us know what photos and/or video are available of the victim and the fugitive.


NOTE: We are not able to return materials, so do not send original or irreplaceable photos, documents, etc.
