    Sherrill Levitt was born on November 1, 1944, and was age 47 at time of her disappearance. She was 5 feet 0 inches (1.52 m), 110 pounds (50 kg), with short light blonde hair, brown eyes and pierced ears. She was a cosmetologist at a local salon and a single mother, and was described as being very close to her daughter, Suzanne Elizabeth "Suzie" Streeter. Streeter was born on March 9, 1973 (age 19 in 1992), was 5 feet 5 inches (1.65 m), 102 pounds (46 kg), with shoulder length blonde hair and brown eyes. Her distinguishable marks included a scar on her upper right forearm, a small mole on the left corner of her mouth, and pierced ears (left ear pierced twice). Streeter's friend, Stacy McCall, was born on April 23, 1974 (age 18 in 1992), was 5 feet 3 inches (1.60 m) and 120 pounds (54 kg), with long dark blonde hair and light colored eyes.[1]

    On Tuesday, fresh flowers rest near by a memorial to the two teens and mother. Like those fresh flowers Stacy McCall's mother tells KSPR she feels fresh leads, technology and investigators can still bring her daughter and the other two women home.

    "I look at Stacy and I think she's not 18, she's 38. It's heartbreaking," McCall said in an interview with us on the twenty year anniversary. "Twenty birthdays and twenty Thanksgivings and Christmases and so many times that we sit around the table wanting her nearby."

    (...)

    Chief Webb offers this advice to any law enforcement who finds the mystery in their hands: "Never give up. You have to go to work on this and treat any piece of information like it's the glue we've been waiting for to crack this case open."

    Janis McCall asks people who speculate to stick to the facts and stay away from so many rumors she feels have sensationalized the case.The reward fund for prosecution of those responsible now sits at 42 thousand dollars.

    Admin note: During the period the posts in #2 and #3 were being made, Websleuths rules were different, links are no longer good and much of the discusssion that took place at that time has since been disproved as not connected or incorrect. For that reason, Threads #2 and #3 will remain unavailable.

    Sometimes, a colder case needs fresh eyes. Eyes that will start with nothing and examine every available resource to come up with a theory. This is one of those cases. What was done was done. Some was very helpful and bears continued scrutiny. Some has already been put to bed and left behind. Consider Threads #2 and #3 to be the latter. Thank you to all who examine the facts of this case and provide your thoughts. These women still wait for justice. Their family members still await closure.

    I closed this discussion on Wednesday because of a string of posts which were personalizing and bickering. If you disagree with someone please debate in a civil manner and without making directed insults or "yelling" at other posters. You may have to agree to disagree, "scroll and roll", or put the poster on ignore.

    Carry on.

    Thanks,
    Whiskers

    Stop making personalized posts which are snarky, condescending, or dismissive of what another person posts. If you know or suspect a TOS violation of some kind, report it to moderators. Please remain focused on the three missing women we're here to discuss, not one another.

    This would be strange as the two young women were on their way back to Suzie’s house at the time that Sheril was it searching for them?

    If it was slightly later then I would of assumed one of them had broken down and they had called home
    for help from a Pay Phone. But they had barely left Janelle’s at 2.15am.

    Hey y'all......a post in #9 thread mentioned Stacy as 'bubbly' and basically move around a party talking to people and Suzie was 'shy'....was comment by Shane Appleby.

    Stacy sounds very friendly and perhaps 'never met a stranger'. I do wonder if she chatted with the 'wrong' stranger at one of the parties.

    Not until ~2:35AM. So Sherrill would have arrived home before the women since it takes 16 mins to get from Apco to 1717 Delmar.

    Also why is it always assumed Sherrill was called out of the house by her daughter or daughter's friend? Couldn't Sherrill have searched because someone dangerous is expected to come over? Maybe it was something that couldn't be brought to the attention of the other mothers?

    But as far as we are aware Suzie never told her mum she was due back that night. There is no indication she called home when her plans to sleep elsewhere fell though for the second time that night. I think the only called she made home was to say they was staying in Springfield that night and not going to stay in a hotel.

    I think Sherrill searching for Suzie isn't anything complicated or related to being phoned by Suzie/a friend.

    I think she didn't know where she was and wasn't going to call Mrs. Kirby at 2AM to find out.

    I think Apco sighting proves that something bad in Sherrill and Suzie's life was about to present itself and she needed to find and alert her daughter.

    I wonder if that Apco was a popular/convenient 'hangout' for teenagers back in the day, definitely a place to buy cigs. and such.

    Is Sherill being spotted at the gas station well known? I’ve always read the last confirmed contact with her was a conversation she had on the phone with a friend around 11. This would mean she was alive much later.

    Sorry I’m new to the case. This is fascinating info.

    I hadn’t heard of the Apco sighting until now, either. It does beg the question as to why that would be Sherill’s stop to check for Suzie - especially given it wasn’t exactly close to Delmar and I’m assuming she knew of the plans to stay with Janelle. Why wouldn’t she have stopped there first? Or even after - but then I’m not familiar with the logistics of Battlefield, or the gas station in relation to her home.

    Going back to catmammy’s theory, it’s similar to one I have formed recently too. Sherill is described as a private but friendly woman, could there have been a man in her life that posed a danger to her and Suzie? I know there’s a name in particular that has possibly been romantically linked with her, but the timing of this crime is part of what makes it so compelling. Someone with close knowledge of the graduation plans, or a random sexual assault turned worse. Whether this man was a stranger who forced his way in or someone she knew, I don’t think it’s too much of a stretch to believe this could have been a long and arduous ordeal for Sherill - before the girls even arrived home. It could just have easily started moments before they arrived. Dog may have been put in the bathroom or outside at that point, or perhaps even prior to any male entering.

    Once they arrived home, the girls got ready for bed - probably keen not to wake Sherill. I’ve seen it noted that Suzie couldn’t sleep without her tv on and the sound off - would explain the static Janis saw if she meant the bedroom tv. They were taken by surprise, beckoned out of the house with threat of a weapon. I go back and forth on whether that’s plausible given the lack of struggle signs in the house - but when you’re confronted with that kind of situation, you more likely comply. Sherill would have had to still been alive when they left the home, surely. Any other way would have given the opportunity to escape and I’m swayed to believe this part of the crime was the work of one man, perhaps others came into play after.

    Another aspect of that theory is perhaps this man had spent a decent amount of time in the house that night - enough to gather photos that were reportedly missing from frames.

    It’s a bit of a muddled fusion of events that I’m still not entirely convinced with myself, but I think most theories are valid in this case. Although not shut off to the possibility drugs played a part in this crime, I lean more towards sexual motivations. Drugs and money usually go hand in hand - and so much cash/checks left behind here. I think police would have found at least some fibre of evidence that could tie either woman to being involved in drugs and nothing has ever been mentioned. I’m sure I saw it posted a few pages back but usually those type of crimes don’t end with abductions and likely murders from a residence. Everything would have taken place there and the women surely found there, too?

    I still think the home was cleaned up after the fact as even with a gun why would Stacey for example go quietly?

    You have 3 women all with different personalities and yet the crime scene suggests nobody fought for their life’s?

    I don’t buy it and the police also questioned the crime scene and said something didn’t seem right.

    There are at least two known people who had hours of uninterrupted time to clean up whatever went on that early AM and stage it.


    IMO

    There have been other cases just like this one where no evidence was left behind as well.
