    Vicki Nisbett was last seen 25 years ago; she was reported missing by her soon to be ex-husband Rex. He was charged and arrested for Vicki's murder in 2013. He was later found guilty and sentenced to 42 years in prison. Now, The 3rd Court of Appeals has reversed that conviction.

    Details of Disappearance
    Vicki was last seen leaving her apartment at the Anderson Mill apartment complex in Cedar Park, Texas at 6:00 p.m. on December 14, 1991, on her way to a company Christmas party. She has never been heard from again. Her husband, Rex, reported her missing on December 16, two days later. He said Vicki had needed some time away and he thought she'd gone to Austin, Texas, but Vicki's family said it is uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning. Vicki and Rex were legally separated at the time of her disappearance, but they still lived together. They have three sons. Their divorce was supposed to become final in January 1992.

    In January 1992, police searched Vicki's home and found her blood in the master bedroom of her apartment. It appeared as if someone had tried to clean it up. Based on the amount of blood found, authorities decided Vicki was deceased. An anonymous phone call led police to her brown 1987 Dodge Aries staton wagon in a parking lot off of Mopac Boulevard on February 8, 1992, nearly two months after her disappearance. The vehicle had apparently been parked there for several weeks.

    A photo of Rex is posted below this case summary. In March 2013, he was indicted for his wife's murder. Vicki was seeing another man and Rex allegedly assaulted her new boyfriend a month before she disappeared. Investigators believe he killed her after an argument in their apartment. Rex has a record for assault and drug-related offenses, but no felony convictions. He was homeless at the time of his arrest. Investigators believe he had help in disposing of Vicki's body, and they've appealed for his accomplices to come forward.

    Rex was convicted of Vicki's murder in June 2014, and sentenced to 42 years in prison. He will be eligible for parole after serving one-quarter of his sentence. Foul play is suspected in Vicki's case due to the circumstances involved. Her body has never been found.

    I'm curious about this, and remember her disappearance. Williamson County (and Jana Duty specifically) has a reputation for getting things wrong. Especially in the Greg Kelley case, as well as other cases where she's accused of withholding or fabricating evidence, or defying judge's orders, or being derelect in her duty in any number of ways. It does sound like, in this case, she got it right unless she's lying about the amount of blood found (which I think is completely possible based on her other behaviors). Thank heavens she's been voted out of office and although she won't face criminal charges for her past behavior, Williamson county will be rid of her soon.

    So. There is a question in the air, whether despite clear evidence to the contrary, Vicki Lynn Nisbett is out there alive somewhere. So i googled around and. Um. Boy there is someone out there who looks remarkably like her, and has her exact name.

    See, Reyemonde, it's that kind of thing that just gives me GREAT pause. A woman picked him up - who was she? Surely LE knows, since they have a license plate data base.

    Who did he go see at the elementary school? Does he have a relative/dear friend who is a teacher?

    Although I think the evidence leans toward her being murdered by her husband, this kind of investigation seems EXCEPTIONALLY misleading and sloppy. Did they ask him, why did you go to Blockhouse creek, and see what he said? Apparently not.

    And Duty's insistence that there was massive blood - I just don't trust her. If there was truly massive blood, it seems this would have held up in court. I'd sooner move a mountain than try to get a conviction overturned in Williamson county, and yet this one was. This was her home - as a young woman, it's likely there would be blood in her home, from menstrual incidents or other injuries. And who in the world doesn't clean up blood? OF COURSE any blood stains would appear to have been cleaned up.

    Prayers that they eventually find out what happened to her - as it is, I don't trust Duty at all, or Williamson County.

    According to this Fort Bend County website, Rex Nisbett divorced Vicki Lynn Nisbett in August of 1995, presumedly to marry the next woman he's on record for divorcing.

    She didn't appear at the divorce, and wasn't served except through the newspaper general circulation.

    So on Ancestry.com, I used their SSI death records search with her name and SSN, and didn't get a match.

    So she's not been legally declared dead? How do you send someone to prison for her murder if she's not legally dead?
