    Jessie Kay Peters
    Missing since March 29, 1996 from Glendora, Los Angeles County, California.
    Classification: Endangered Missing

    Vital Statistics

    Date Of Birth: July 29, 1981
    Age at Time of Disappearance: 14 years old
    Height and Weight at Time of Disappearance: 5'4"; 118 lbs.

    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Peters was last seen on March 29, 1996 in Glendora, CA. She may have dyed her hair dark brown and may no longer have braces on her teeth.
    Prosecutors believe two suspects targeted Jessie as part of an obsession with teenage girls. During the trial's penalty phase, a psychiatric expert who examined one of the suspects testified the woman told her she lured Jessie away from her Glendora home. They held her at gunpoint and took her up to Lake Arrowhead, where they handcuffed her to a bed. They alleged drowned her, in a bathtub, and disposed of her in the ocean.
    Jessie's mother had worked for one of the suspects as a beautician in one of his hair salons.

    Michael Thornton and his teenage girlfriend, Janeen Snyder, are responsible for the death of Jessie as well as Michelle Curran (2001). I am sure they are probably responsible for other kidnapping and murders from 1996-2001.


    Jessie's family and friends still keep her on-line obituary from 1996 going. People continue to write kind words about her.

    I watched that Killer Couples episode that features Jessie's case. What this girl must have been through is beyond horrible.
