    HE WAS A PERSON OF INTEREST IN A MISSING WOMAN CASE!

    http://www.gastongazette.com/news/simonds_21446___article.html/police_trunk.html

    From the moment his girlfriend vanished two months ago, Ricky Simonds Jr. said he suspected his father had something to do with it.

    "Of course I did. He was one of the last people seen with her," said Simonds Jr., 31. "I didn't have no choice but to think that."

    Now, after Simonds Jr.'s estranged father was found dead in the trunk of a car Sunday, he and others fear that answers to the mystery of Jamie Michelle Fraley's disappearance two months ago may have died with him.

    The body of Ricky Dale Simonds Sr., 49, was found about 6 p.m. Sunday in the trunk of his ex-girlfriend's Ford Taurus.

    Tammy Maier said she reads the newspaper every day, hoping to find answers in the disappearance of her friend and former neighbor Jamie Fraley.

    After reading an article last week in the Gaston Gazette about Kim Fraley's desperate search for her missing daughter, Maier said she decided she had to find a way to help.

    So Maier, who works at Nichol's Food Store on McAdenville Road near the I-85 North off-ramp in Belmont, said she put a jug on the counter to raise money for Kim Fraley's search.

    She is such a pretty girl. Did she have a boyfriend or one that she had broken up with?

    Jamie Fraley went missing sometime after midnight on April 8, 2008 from her apartment building on Lowell Bethesda Rd. in Gastonia, N.C.

    Cops say Jamie, a 22-year-old student at Gaston College, wasn’t feeling well the day she disappeared and went to the emergency room complaining of pain in her abdomen.

    Jamie doesn’t have a driver’s license, so police say Jamie’s social service worker took her to the hospital around lunchtime and then brought her home.

    Jamie was unhappy with the hospital’s diagnosis and thought she was suffering from something more serious, so she didn’t fill the prescription she was given, Sgt. Christie L. Rhoney of the Gaston County Police said.

    Shortly after she returned home, Kim Sprenger came by Jamie’s apartment to pick up the dog that Jamie watched for her and took Jamie’s prescription to drop off at a Walgreen’s pharmacy, according to Rhoney.

    Cops say Sprenger and Jamie met when Sprenger dated one of Jamie’s neighbors, Ricky Dale Simonds Sr., 49.

    Jamie was dating Simonds Sr.’s son, Ricky Dale Simonds Jr., 31, at the time of her disappearance.

    Between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m., police say, Jamie decided she needed to go back to the emergency room and called Simonds Sr. to take her.

    Cops say Simonds Sr. dropped her off at the emergency room and left, but when Jamie went inside she found that the wait time was around three to five hours, and she didn’t want to stay.

    Jamie couldn’t get in touch with Simonds Sr. and called another neighbor who picked her up and took her home around midnight, according to police.

    After she went inside her apartment, cops say Jamie made quite a few phone calls.

    Police say phone records show that Jamie talked with her mom, Kim Fraley, and a friend who lives in the Albemarle, N.C. area.

    Kim Fraley told police that Jamie called to say she was home safely from the hospital and mentioned that she needed someone to take her back to the emergency room.

    Cops say that at the end of her conversation with her friend in Albemarle, N.C., Jamie may have said something like, “I think my ride is here. He’s here.”

    The friend said she heard Jamie walking down the stairs outside her apartment.

    Jamie’s cell phone records also show several calls to Simonds Sr., but police are unsure if the two actually spoke.

    Simonds Sr. told police that he did speak with her and she asked to go back to the hospital, but he said he told her just to lie down and rest.

    Cops say a utility worker found Jamie’s cell phoneon April 11, 2008 in the grass at the intersection of S. New Hope Rd. and E. Hudson Blvd. in Gastonia, N.C. a few miles from Jamie’s apartment building.

    The neighbor who dropped Jamie off around midnight on April 8, 2008 was the last to see her, according to police.

    Cops say several calls were made from Jamie’s phone around 4:30 a.m. on April 9, 2008, the night she disappeared. None of the calls actually connected and police say the numbers dialed were likely those in the phone’s list of recent calls.

    The phone records also show that her phone received a call early in the morning on April 9, according to police.

    Cops say when they received the phone it had been handled by too many people to provide valuable evidence.

    Jamie is 4'9" tall and about 90 lbs., with blonde hair and blue eyes and cops say, so far, the search for her has turned up nothing.



    Simonds Sr. was a person of interest in Jamie’s case, but on June 8, 2008, Simonds Sr. was found dead in the trunk of Sprenger’s car.

    Cops say Sprenger had a protective order to keep Simonds Sr. away, but Simonds Sr. may have climbed into the trunk on his own and died from overheating in the 90-degree weather.

    Simonds Sr.’s criminal history includes fraud, larceny and several drug arrests, according to police. Cops say he also served time in prison for strangling an ex-girlfriend to death.

    Simonds Jr. was in prison on larceny charges at the time of Jamie’s disappearance and is not considered a suspect, according to police.



    Sorry for the long post,i really want Jamie and her family to have peace.

    It is odd that LE said the phone was handled by too many people to get evidence. They just need to check the phone and ping records.

    It sounds like the POI they found dead in his ex-gf's trunk is the perp, sadly. This case could possibly never be solved without finding Jamie or some further evidence.

    What was the COD of the Sr. guy?
    Do we know what the prescription she did not fill was for? Was it picked up by anyone?
    Why did she have a social services worker?
    Why wouldnt they name the neighbor who picked her up at the ER the second time?
    I mean no disrespect to anyone, but is it possible she kept returning because she wanted a narc script and they would not give it to her? Could it be she returned to find the same ER Doc on duty and was hoping enough time had passed for the rotation? Was she triaged the second time that someone could verify she actually showed up?

    Authorities believe he hid in the trunk to ambush his ex-gf because she took a restraining order out on him. He stole the exes keys and purse and that was found in the trunk with him. They believe he got trapped inside and died from heat exaustion. No she never went back the 3rd time. They diagnosed her with the stomach flu,gave her antibiotics. (prescription) They were never picked up.
    Her purse, keys and ID were left at her apartment. The social worker was a transportation ordeal more or less that took her to college.

    She is also bi-polar and suffers from anxiety disorder, She is supposed to be taking medication for her conditions. Also noted is that Sidmonds sr. refused to take a lie-detector test about Jamie.

    It is believed she was wearing a large white t-shirt and jeans when last seen, and she has been without her medications.

    I agree with SS, that "SR" is the likely perp, and apparently, sometimes fate plays a hand with the bad guys. I pray for her to be found. It is just a bad situation all the way around.

    I do think though that SR girlfriend should be vetted completely. This child deserves to be found.

    "Simonds Sr. was a person of interest in Jamie’s case, but on June 8, 2008, Simonds Sr. was found dead in the trunk of Sprenger’s car.

    http://www.amw.com/missing_persons/case.cfm?id=60357

    Wow, so the father of the man Jamie was seeing climbed into Sprenger's car trunk possibly trying to stalk Sprenger. The boyfriend Simond Jr was in prison at the time Jamie went missing.

    She went to the hospital 3 times that day/night? The first time being unhappy with the diagnosis, the 2nd time she was unhappy with the long wait, then the 3rd time the last person to see her being a neighbor who dropped her off around midnight?:confused:

    What was she going to the hospital for? Abdominal pains, yet what was the diagnosis she was unhappy with?

    So her friend Sprenger had a restraining order against her exboyfriend Simond Sr (who was found dead in Sprenger's trunk).
    Jamie was dating Simond Jr, the son who was in prison at the time.

    "Cops say that at the end of her conversation with her friend in Albemarle, N.C., Jamie may have said something like, “I think my ride is here. He’s here.” The friend said she heard Jamie walking down the stairs outside her apartment.
    Jamie’s cell phone records also show several calls to Simonds Sr., but police are unsure if the two actually spoke.
    Simonds Sr. told police that he did speak with her and she asked to go back to the hospital, but he said he told her just to lie down and rest."

    You have Jamie's word conflicting with Simond Sr. Her friend her heard going down the stairs outside of her apartment to her ride to the E.R. who was a male, "he's here."
    The Simonds Sr says that he told her to lie down and rest. So she never made it to the hospital the 3rd time?:confused:

    Family not giving up on missing woman

    The family of a missing 22-year-old woman is not giving up hope that she's alive.
    It's been almost one year since Jamie Fraley's disappearance.
    NewsChannel 36 has learned there is going to be another search for Fraley next month by members of the Kristen Foundation, who will search areas that have not been searched before.

    http://www.wcnc.com/news/local/stories/wcnc-022209-sjf-fraleyupdate.3f45350a.html

    A new search is planned for a missing 22-year-old from Lowell

    Jamie Fraley vanished nearly a year ago, but her family says it is not giving up hope. “I don't want my daughter to be forgotten,” says Jamie's mother, Kim Fraley. “You wake up every day and wonder if this is going to be the day. You just have to keep going, and that is what I am doing.”

    Kim Fraley helped pass out posters of her missing daughter to the crowd at a Charlotte Checkers game Saturday night. She was joined by members of the Kristen Foundation, a group that helps try to locate missing persons.

    The foundation plans to search again next month for Jamie, this time in areas that were not searched when she vanished April 9, 2008.

    When Jamie disappeared, her purse and keys were found in her locked Lowell apartment. A few days later her cell phone was found on a road a couple of miles away.

    http://www.charlotteobserver.com/local/story/555214.html

    Please pray for this family that they get some kind of closure. I will be there to help search for Jamie. I will update more when i find out more.
