One More Monday Mystery...!

We all enjoy a good mystery once in a while, right? That's why I started having Monday as a day for mystery.

Some times these mysteries have an explanation and sometimes they don't. The unexplained are the ones we like the best!

Annette Sagers

On November 21, 1987, Korrina Lynne Sagers Malinoski, a 26-year old woman from Mount Holly, South Carolina, mysteriously disappeared when she did not show up for work and her car was found parked in front of the Mount Holly Plantation. But that’s not even the most bizarre aspect of this story. On October 4, 1988, Korrina’s 8-year old daughter, Annette Sagers, was on her way to school and went to the bus stop in front of the Mount Holly Plantation… and she mysteriously vanished as well!

To make things even stranger, a note was found at the bus stop which read: “Dad, momma come back. Give the boys a hug”. While it looked like it may have been written under duress, handwriting experts determined that Annette likely wrote the note. It’s been speculated that Annette’s mother may have returned to reclaim her daughter so they could disappear together, but she also left two sons behind and no one in their family has heard from either of them in 25 years. In 2000, an anonymous caller claimed that Annette’s body was buried in Sumter County, but that lead never panned out. Overall, this is a truly baffling mystery with no discernible solution.

In a case like this, I believe that the families are the ones that suffer the most. I just can't imagine not knowing what happened to a loved one. Bad news would probably be better than no news at all, I think!

Coffee out on the patio this morning. How about some snickerdoodles?

Strange how people just vanish. If she did return to get her daughter, why did she leave her sons behind? What happened to her husband?
Good mystery, Mr. Hermit!
Raining here - snickerdoodles are a good way to start the week!

I'll stay for coffee this morning but would really appreciate it if you would send some sunshine this way. I'm beginning to feel waterlogged. We've had 6 inches of rain in the last two days.

I agree with you. I would rather find out they are dead than never know what happened to them. Good mystery.

Bubba -

We both know of some rellies we would like to have disappear, right? Maybe they could just fade into the sunset, never to be heard from again...? Sounds good to me!

Bug hugs -

Hey Phyllis...
So many questions about this one. We may never know.

Thanks for coming over today!

Hey Momlady...
You certainly have had your share of the rain lately. I can understand the waterlogged feeling!

Thanks for coming over!

Hey Linda...
The not knowing would be the worse part for me.

Glad you enjoyed the mystery and that you could come over this morning!

Hey Sis...
I guess that all families have someone like that!

Come visit when you can!

Thanks for dropping by this morning!

Maybe there is a "dark side", another dimension that people accidentally slip into? I guess I watch too much sci-fi on TV, right?

Not knowing what happened to a beloved pet we never found was hard enough. I can't even imagine how to deal if it were a human family member. You can believe it or not but I had snickerdooles with my morning tea....Great minds and all that..
