It's a shame that no one from either side of the family seems to have searched for her. From what I gather, he (the husband) was quite a bit older than her. The case is mentioned in the sidebar of this article below. LE seems to have re-interviewed the husband who now lives in Shelton:

ETA - I've tried to search out siblings or relatives on her side of the family but have not had much luck.

From that article:

The Jefferson County cold case squad of four former law enforcement professionals overseen by Chief Criminal Deputy Joe Nole was formed two years ago at the instigation of former Sheriff Mike Brasfield, a former deputy chief with the Seattle Police Department.

Hopefully they're looking into Sharon & her daughters' disappearances too. :praying:
 
Just came across the following https://charleyross.wordpress.com/2013/08/09/flashback-friday-the-giusti-family/.

The interesting bit is the comment from Jason Martin, the great nephew of Sharon Giusti, at the bottom of the article. This is the first time I have come across any family comment and it is damning to say the least. It seems to confirm all the worst suspicions about the marriage and the prior behaviour of the husband. And the fact he owned a gun shop and was best buddies with the sheriff is even more concerning.

It would be interesting if anyone can add to the comments of Mr Martin or corroborate all the new information he offers.

A Barbara L Giusti is still listed as living with R Giusti in Shelton. According to the relative's post (linked above) R Giusti later married Sharon's best friend. This could be Barbara. She was born in 1943 like Sharon.

I find it difficult to believe that they were married only a year after Sharon's disappearance as it was my understanding that she would have had to been pronounced dead or granted a divorce in order for him to legally remarry???
 
There is an article here about the Sheriff (Robert L Hensen) that Sharon's relative mentions. It's an interesting article and gives a better sense of what was going on in those times:

I spelt Robert L Hansen's name incorrectly in my previous post. Also, I found a couple of other articles by the same person that wrote the one above. He and R Giusti went to school together.

(Search for Giusti on the page and you will find the info.)

Given all of these connections, I find it very strange that there were no news articles or reports about Sharon's disappearance.
 
I wish we could know a bit more about Sharon herself and the kind of life she had with her family of origin...which of course leads to, why did she marry at 17? Was she just crazy in love, as many girls at that age may feel? Or was she just desperate to leave home the minute she could?

Also, I agree with the previous poster who said that being 20 years old with two babies is a lot to handle...not just for Sharon, but her husband as well. Perhaps he couldn't handle it, either the financial and physical responsibility, or just the emotional end of things, e.g. kids crying and playing loudly when he comes home from work and wants to relax, etc. That could have driven either Sharon to take off or him to want them gone.
 
Interesting that the name of the sheriff is Robert Hansen. There are two other Robert Hansen's associated with crimes- Robert Hansen, husband of Joan Ellen Hansen, who went missing in 1962- they are also from Washington State.

Also, Robert Hansen, the murdering baker from Alaska who liked to hunt women. How odd that they all have the same name.
 
Thinking of Sharon and her two children who went missing and her husband who moved on without comment.
 
Apparently, Glenn Bagley died earlier this year.....
From article at link....

"A former Jefferson County man who was a person of interest in the disappearance of two women and one child in the 1970s apparently has died in the Philippines.

Glenn Allan Bagley, who had lived in Manila for many years, contracted cancer and died Feb. 11, 2016, according to Bob Gebo, a retired police investigator who leads the volunteer cold case squad"

You're asking that question through 2015/16 eyes.

In 1963, sex outside of marriage was not socially acceptable, so (not surprisingly) people married young. Getting married at that age was normal. It isn't particularly uncommon today in rural areas.

Hansen is a very, very common last name in the Pacific NW.
