    Lee is not listed in NamUs.

    I did a search using Marilee Bruszer, Lee Bruszer, and just the surname Bruszer since it seems to be an uncommon one. No archived articles at all.

    I did find this which I thought was interesting and I wonder where the info came from?

    I intentionally left off the posters name (posted full name) and email addy out of respect for privacy to the user.

    Very Odd.

    Marilee has been missing 32 years today. Come home soon.

    I noticed that a post regarding an unidentified woman found in 1978, who was eventually ruled out as Ms. Bruszer, http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=147114 there is a map showing the route that she would have taken from 50 61st Pl, Long Beach, CA 90803 to Downtown Los Angeles (where she worked) then to the address the unidentified woman was found in Thousand Oaks. I was wondering if 50 61st Pl, Long Beach, CA 90803 was Marilee Bruszer's last known address?

    It was the general block she lived on, but not necessarily her exact address according to her Charley Project profile (http://charleyproject.org/cases/b/bruszer_marilee.html):

    Thanks! I thought I read Marilee Bruszer's Charley Project profile, but I must have overlooked that. She lived on the Bayside of the Peninsula neighborhood -- its a nice area. I used to live at 56th Place a few blocks away. The Peninsula area of Long Beach is sort of crowded and probably was even in the 1970s, so if something happened to her there one of her neighbors probably would have noticed. I wonder if LE interviewed them? Was her car ever recovered?

    Its been 33 years today since Marilee Bruszer went missing.

    Not sure on who was interviewed, but in the L.A. Times article posted earlier, it does mention her neighbors were part of the group offering an award for information on her disappearance.

    RIP Marilee. She can rest at peace now.

    I hope the monster who did this to her is burning in a very hot place.

    She had a family who cared about her disappearance, friends and neighbors who offered a reward for her return... Marilee Bruszer was loved and hopefully law enforcement are able to make headway in their newly opened homicide investigation.

    Just saw that there is a Wikipedia article on Marilee Bruszer and wanted to share here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder_of_Marilee_Bruszer.

    Yesterday was the anniversary of the discovery of her remains so far from home and just over a year to when the remains were identified as her, 37 years after her disappearance. Glad she's been returned to her loved ones.
