    I am appalled that people nor investigators give off the impression They care about some of theses cases now. One thing that I thought of was a girl being kidnapped by a man and raped with her throat cut and left for dead. She was left near a school and found alive. Years later DNA coughs the perp and he hanged himself in Dickinson jail. Could he have been a suspect in others?

    Hard to believe, isn't it?

    Are you talking about Jennifer Schuett? Dennis Bradford was the perp who attacked her, and I certainly do believe he could be responsible for more crimes. We might have a thread on him already in this forum. If not, I'll start one.

    Because Schuett survived and was able to talk, despite her would be killer's intentions when he slit her throat, we've heard a first hand account of the vicious, cruel and inhuman acts waged by Dennis Bradford. Her voicebox was damaged by the blade he used, and doctors said she'd never speak again. Yet she went on to become a loud voice for the thousands of victims who didn't live to tell their tales. Such courage. May God bless her.

    Holy Cow, look at all those girls from 1971----am I seeing this correctly (small print)? Multiple women reported on the same day(s)?

    That's correct. Debbie Ackerman and Maria Johnson were friends. The White girl was a separate incident, and thankfully, she escaped.

    Sutherlin's date might be off by a day. For the most part, they're accurate. It's surprising how many pairs of friends are on these lists. I have to upload the revised worksheets. And I just saw where my photos are missing on the other thread. Darn photobucket! I moved some images into folders and the links are all messed up. Anyway, here's the thread.

    Update: Carolyn Sue Harris has been located.
    Posting of Carolyn Harris is on page 4 of this thread.

    Do to mistake on filing, she was missing for 22 years. The mistake was her missing date was wrong. That was the day it was reported. But she went missing a little over a month before. They never looked at cold cases or Jane doe cases before this date.

    My name is Mark Harris. I am Carolyn's brother.
    My father and I reported Carolyn missing in May of 1993 after no contact with her for over a month.

    Carolyn has been located. A body of a women was located April 1, 1993. She was murdered on March 30,1993. Her body was found April 1, 1993. Because she had never been arrested and no ID was found with the body, the case was marked as a Jane Doe.

    In October of 2015, we were contacted my Houston Missing Persons Detective Busy.
    He informed us they may have located a cold case file that could match her description.

    See in or around 2011. Houston received a grant to intern 12 unknowns from the Houston Unknown Cemetery. DNA was to be collected from these 12 people and put in the data base.
    Since my sister and I have the same parents, my DNA would be the closest match.
    In December of 2015, the match was verified.

    Since then, we have been working with Houston PD and a local funeral home to get her death certificate amended from Jane doe to Carolyn Harris so we can bring her remains back home.

    My sister is survived by myself, her father John, her mother Pam and her daughter Beth.

    Sad story of this all besides getting the news of my sisters passing is the story of my sisters daughter. In 1990, my sister had a baby girl. But at the time, my sister was not able to care for a child. So she gave her up for adoption to a loving family in Dallas. After her birth, my sister moved back and forth a lot from Dallas to Houston.
    Beth never met her mother. But in 1994, my father and I were contacted by Beth's adoptive family. We were blessed to be able to be apart of Beth's entire life growing up. Beth always asked about her real mother growing up. Her aboptive family was very open with everything. Beth always wanted to meet her mother.
    Also in 2014, Beth's adoptive mother passed away. So the news now of her real mothers passing has been very hard on her and everyone else.

    We are hopeful that Houston PD and the funeral home gets off their butt soon so we can bring my sister home. We have been pushing but red tape from a Jane doe to identification has slowed things down.
    My father and I are hoping to head to Houston soon to light a fire under their butts.

    But thankfully she has been found. It's sad news of her passing and no leads on her death but at least my family can work on getting closer after 22 years.

    bcfd144, I'm so sorry for your loss. The not knowing for 22 years had to have been hard on the family. Praying you and your family are able to find closure after so many years.

    Godspeed, bcfd144. I pray Carolyn will be returned home to her loved ones very soon, and that you get all of the answers you need. Thank you for the update. Please keep us posted on any further developments.

    Need some assistance. I am currently working with a documentary team that is covering the case of Melissa Witt from Fort Smith, Arkansas. She was kidnapped on December 1st, 1995 and her body was found in 1995. We are searching for other unsolved cases in Arkansas and in Texas of young women that were kidnapped and found strangled. Melissa Witt was found in the national forest - she was completely nude. We are interested in looking at any case that is remotely similar to that of Melissa Witt as we work to cross match a suspect in her case to other murders. It is well believed that this suspect is a serial killer. Any help that anyone could provide would be beneficial.

    Melissa Witt's name came up in my review of the Morgan Nick case. Morgan went missing from ballfields in Alma, Arkansas on 6/9/95. Her whereabouts or whether she is alive/dead is unknown at this time.
