    Over 20 years ago in December 1979 investigators came across a Chevrolet van parked alongside Hwy 866 about ½ mile north of University Blvd. Inside they discovered the body of Sue Brooks Powell. This mother of 5 children had been shot to death.

    It fine to post them here. Looks good. Can you post links for both? Its ok to post more information on each for comparisons as long as you post the links. What about the teeth?

    Thanks.

    You're right. The doe has dental records so she has teeth. The Missing woman has false teeth.

    I didn't notice the Doe is listed in our 2000 thread. I know this gets confusing but try to put them in the decade thread so others will see it too.

    Not a big deal but it helps if anyone else "happens" to be looking at the same victim.

    We really appreciate your enthusiasm and you have a great eye for detail. I can imagine you will locate more than a few in time!

    Did you notice the timeline for the 1970's. posted above. I found it interesting that not a single girl went missing on a Saturday..........
    Any thoughts about that?

    I'm surprised this article failed to give the names of the two 15 year old girls who disappeared after surfing in Galveston.

    Suzie disappeared from Galveston, TX on 5/21/77. She was walking from the
    4000 block Ave S 1/2 to 3100 block of Ave P. She was last seen at 10:45 am.
    She may have walked down 39th St or taken the Seawall route. A parade was
    on the Seawall. Her skeletal remains were found in Alta Loma, TX on 3/25/1979.

    Several types of vehicles were seen. A truck, jeep, van with lettering
    & a station wagon.

    I would like to hear from the man in Dickinson that knows the person who did this crime.
    You have children the same age of when Suzie was murdered & you made a call to her family.
    You also gave the initials "FS" or "GS" of the person that committed this murder. Please contact me.

    Henry Lee Lucas confessed to this crime but I do not believe he is her killer.
    Edward Bell name have also came up.

    If anyone have any information, no matter how small it may be, please contact me.

    These circumstances remind me of the abduction of Rhonda Johnson and Sharon Shaw, just 6 years earlier, also abducted in Galveston, and their bodies found in Harris County.
