Charley Ross for me. I named my missing persons website after him for a reason.

What really frustrates/haunts me though, is the very old cases for which I have no information whatsoever. Cases like Charles Hall III, Francillon Pierre, Ronald Cole...

I have a few-
Christine Wrightwas the first one to hit a nerve when I read it.
Ian Davis II he was a childhood friend.
Ian Davis I he died not long after his son, in odd circumstances.
Bruce Edward Myers if his case is found not to be an "accident" like everyone thinks, it will be one of two murders in our small town.

Someone said something along the lines of "I hope I can figure all this out before I die."

I often think of how exciting it will be when I get to heaven and find all the answers!

Taj Narbonne and all the other cases, where there is a clear suspect, who could not be caught.
There are so many cases of missing women/girls in which is stated “She was in a troubled relationship. LE calls her boyfriend/husband a person of interest.” And you can even find cases where the person of interest had other girlfriends/ wives prior and afterwards who went missing or got murdered.

This case bothers me because the only way I can see three healthy girls disappearing like that is if someone they knew or someone they trusted (a police officer or security guard) lured them somewhere and hurt them. Apparently there was a note written by one of the girls saying they were taking off for a week, but who takes off like that at Christmas? Especially when there is a 9yo girl with them? And Christmas presents in the car? I think the note was forged. It's so baffling and frustrating.

Sorry for the double post.

I forgot to mention Nyleen Kay Marshall. Her disappearance, coupled with the sighting and the letter supposedly written by her abductor, make for an intriguing mystery. Then there was that mysterious woman who was pregnant who went by Kay and entered a hospital...there was some speculation that it was Nyleen. Then Nyleen's mother was raped and murdered in Mexico. The whole story is layered in confusion and sadness.

Sorry for posting twice on this thread...but there is another case I have been intrigued with for a long time. It has a thread on WS though it hasn't garnered much discussion. I became involved in this when I found the website of the two filmmakers who were making a documentary about this case. I began communicating with the filmmakers, and they turned out a wonderful documentary.

In Villisca, Iowa on June 10, 1912 there were eight people murdered with an axe while they slept. The victims were Josiah and Sara Moore and their four children, Herman, Katherine, Boyd and Paul and two visiting neighbor children, Lena and Ina Stillinger. The murder is unsolved to this day. But the story of the murders, their aftermath and how they ripped apart this very small town is fascinating. Here is the link to the WS thread and also the link to the documentary about the Villisca murders.

http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...light=Villisca

http://www.villiscamovie.com/

It's a fascinating case but particularly tragic because out of the eight victims, six were children. The film is very well done. I would highly recommend anyone interested in this case to check out the documentary.

Michael Adams - whos website has gotten very, very interesting lately. Apparently a bunch of his friends got tired of waiting for the police to resolve it, and got together and started investingating his disappearance on their own. Based on what they've been putting on the website it looks like they know who took Michael and have been leaving very interesting messages for them. It's like a soap, but I say good for them. It shows what people can do when they come together.

flyboy, do you know more about the Mike Adams case? I read the website; it was very intriguing. Does the family believe they know who murdered Mike, or do they believe he may still be alive?

Wow, thanks MaryBeth! I just put the documentary on my netflix. I had never heard of this before and it is pretty fascinating. The thread here didn't seem to get a lot of attention though which I don't understand.

I want to add the Dyatlov Pass Incident. Nine experience hikers go for a long hike and camping excursion in the Urals in 1959. Something terrified them so badly that they cut their way out of their tents and went running half naked into -40 degree temps. They were all found dead. One group had attempted to make a fire instead of returning to their camp where all of their clothese were - they died of exposure. The second group was not found until months later. They had all sustained massive injuries - injuries that are reminescent of something you would see in a car accident. Blunt Force Trauna to the chest. Two victims were found in a position suggesting they had tried to crawl back to camp. One victim also had a skull fracture. One victim was missing her tongue. All of the hikers tested positive for high levels of radiation. Many believe a cover-up was then executed by the Russian authorities.
The cause of deaths was ruled: A compelling and unknown force.

gaia, you're welcome. It's such a fascinating case, especially if you get into the story of the people who were suspects and their backgrounds and also, like I said, what the murders did to this small town. People took sides and it formed a division in the town that virtually lasts to this day. And it happened 96 years ago! There is a lot of interesting reading on the website.

The filmmakers are the nicest people, and the film is well done, I think. It took them about 10 years to complete it but they wanted it done right and they really wanted to maintain a level of respect for the people of this small town and what they have been through with this horrible tragedy. You may have to watch it a couple times to get all the suspects and theories straight. Even reading up on the case thoroughly before I saw the film, including reading through court transcripts and a lot of other information, I still had to watch it a couple times to understand the whole story. That may be why the thread hasn't taken off here, there is a lot to sift through in this case. I got involved with it before I joined WS and so I had more time to read through everything because it was the only case I was concentrating on at the time.

I hope you enjoy the documentary!
