    KY - Ora 'Alyne' Barrick, 60, Mammoth Cave, 12 Apr 1996

    I came across this case the other day. She's been missing out of Kentucky since 1996. The circumstances of her disappearance are indicative of foul play.

    I came across some articles about this case but most of them are behind a paywall.

    To try to summarize:
    Alyne was last seen on April 12, 1996 (Friday), in Mammoth Cave, KY. A neighbor spoke with her that afternoon. The local sheriff's office was contacted two days later (Charley Project says three), after no one had been in contact with her. A deputy forced entrance into her home, and found evidence of a struggle in her bedroom. A family member indicated she may have been involved in a relationship with a younger man, but no name was provided.

    Tomorrow marks the 20th anniversary of Alyne's disappearance.

    This was just updated on the Charley Project.

    Seems to me like she was harmed by someone she knew, as they say that the spare key that she hid inside a fake rock was missing. Who would know that there was a key in there unless it was someone that had been to the house before? I don't think robbery was the motive as the $400 she had in the house was still there. If it had been a random crime, the money would have been taken I bet.

    "Within days, Barrick’s family offered a $5,000 reward which has gone unclaimed over 20 years. Police interviewed a man Barrick knew and who some believe she may have been involved with or who may have been doing work near her home, but even that turned up little information......" From 2016 article below

    Biggers believes the person who is responsible for her mother's disappearance is someone who her mother knew.

    “I feel like it was someone who did work for her,” she said, adding her mother had employed a handyman to do some work for her around her home.

    Neither Biggers nor anyone else with Barrick's family have approached this man about Barrick's disappearance, but Biggers said she does know the police have talked to him.

    “He's in prison,” Biggers said, adding he is serving time for attempted rape and murder in Cook County, Illinois. She declined to give his name. “The state police really don't want us to give names.”
