    Strange.
    Even with documents stating that they would not be charged with any additional charges in this crime.
    They still refuse to tell the whereabouts.

    Either there concerned about there parole hearings in the future.

    Or they really don't know where she is at?

    Or perhaps others could be would be implicated after the fact?

    Hard to see the motives displayed in ones mind.

    Im going to look up information about Shelley Sikes

    I dont believe him and his statement.

    I awoke to see her being hit with a shovel and buried alive.
    What does that mean?

    He walked outside and there was a hole pre-dug and after seeing her hit with a shovel just dropped her into the makeshift grave while still alive.

    I don't believe it.

    Hes putting the blame on the other one.
    The most serious charges. Hes saying he didn't hit her or kill her.
    He just seen someone else do it.

    I believe they did take her back to that house.
    And spent hours torturing her before physically killing her.
    Because mentally and emotionally she was already dead.

    They should never get out of prison.

    Those are old articles so i wonder about them now.

    Still checking on the girl.

    Found her.

    Disappointing.
    Namus has no clothing description.
    So any remains found with clothing would not be able to match.
    Just the hair color at this stage perhaps just guessing.

    Just have to watch for any remains found in the area of the home in either direction
    to make a possible match. If that is a fact where she is at.
    Hard to tell.

    One of the articles stated that she was still moving when she was buried. She was buried alive.

    One of the previous articles told that her white blouse was located and identified by the family as belonging to Shelley.

    summer job as a waitress at Gaido's beach-front restaurant in Galveston.

    If anyone has any knowledge about the appearance of her work outfit
    please let me know. And i will watch for any remains found with this outfit
    including Gaidos maybe printing on it.

    I am currently looking for two
    One for poppy's and golden corral.

    Two that went missing working at those facilities.
    Thank-you in advance.


    I just notice your posting about the white dress so i deleted my statement on it.
    I dont know what to believe about thatl.

    In 1986 they changed the name of this restaurant from The Chart Room to Gaidos. Depending on what month they changed it, her uniform may have changed.

    Abduction witness meets police
    WED 05/28/1986 HOUSTON CHRONICLE, Section 1, Page 19, NO STAR Edition

    http://www.chron.com/CDA/archives/archive.mpl/1986_241767/abduction-witness-meets-police.html
    "GALVESTON - A man has told authorities he witnessed the weekend abduction of a 19-year-old Texas City woman, but did not report the crime because he thought nothing of it at the time.
    Houston and Galveston area law enforcement officers Tuesday were searching for a white male who was last seen early Sunday driving off with Shelley Kathleen Sikes.
    Late in the afternoon, authorities interviewed employees of the beachfront restaurant at which the attractive brunette had worked the past month.
    Sikes' blood-spattered Ford Pinto was found abandoned in a lonely marsh just north of the Galveston causeway.
    Investigators said they think she was kidnapped after her auto was forced from the road and its passenger-side window smashed.
    "He (the witness) said he saw a white male, he saw her and he saw an abduction," said Gean Leonard, chief deputy for the Galveston County Sheriff's Department. "They drove north on Interstate 45. That's about all the new information we have."

    How can anyone witness an abduction and think nothing of it at the time? If she was forced off the road she had to be upset unless she thought the person didn't do it intentionally. If he saw an abduction then he must have seen her being forced into another vehicle. jmo

    Exactly, especially if it happened the way Zwarst describes the abduction - breaking her window. Only a licensed hand gun owner is the solution in cases like this. That poor girl, and all the ones before and after her, had no way to defend themselves.

    Couldn't the man who saw the abduction but didn't report it be brought up on charges?

    I haven't researched this case at all....but maybe he just saw them go up to the car and thought they were helping her. I don't know if he saw them break the window. I do know nothing seems really clear in this case. I just pray they never get out of prison.
