    FL - Teresa Baggett, 13, Indiantown, 3 July 1976

    On Saturday, July 3, 1976, in the small town of Indiantown, Florida the town was geared up due to the fact that a big rodeo was in town. It was taking place at the Burt Reynolds Rodeo Bowl off Citrus Blvd. This would be the last time this rodeo would ever come to Indiantown. Rumor has it that it was because of the death of a 13 year old girl. A girl named Teresa Baggett.

    The Martin County Sherriff’s Department stated on July 3, 1976 she was last seen leaving Rhine’s Market in a green truck with an older man. Some, even claim it was her father. The family still to this day holds to their statement that he did not kill her and leave her for dead by the spillway. Clifton Baggett, the father, lived and died under the shadow of a small town’s unofficial conviction for the murder of is daughter.

    She was found July 6, 1976, 3 days after she went missing, by an unnamed grove worker. He found her partially floating/bloated body in a cannel on the property of Robinsons Grove off of Hwy 76. This was only 5-6 miles from her home . Teresa’s body was hardly recognizable because of the hot Florida sun and hungry animals. The marking around one half of Teresa’s neck suggested strangulation but the AUTOPSY REPORT STATED’ CAUSE OF DEATH- "UNKNOWN.’’ Teresa was laid to rest on July 10, 1976.

    Why do they think her dad killed her?
