Missing Persons For Monday Mystery...!

Ever wonder how so many folks go missing without a trace in the United States every year?

Sometimes they are the victims of a horrid crime, sometimes they want to start over, and then sometimes they just disappear for good. That's where the mystery comes in.


June 6, 1992. Springfield, Missouri. Teen friends Suzie Streeter and Stacy McCall had just graduated from Kickapoo High School. They attended several graduation parties that evening, then headed back to Suzie’s mother Sherrill Levitt’s house to retire for the evening. They had previously planned to stay with a friend but that friend’s house proved too crowded and Levitt’s house was plan B.

The next day, the women were proclaimed missing after McCall’s parents contacted police in regards to their daughter. All three women left behind all their personal property—keys, wallets, purses, cars—and the family dog was found in the house, unharmed but distressed.

That’s all that’s known about the disappearance of the infamous Springfield Three, other than the local speculation that the bodies are buried beneath Springfield’s Cox Hospital Parking Garage. Their whereabouts remain unknown.

Strange, don't you think? Especially since the mother was missing as well. Guess that's why it's called a mystery.

Coffee out on the patio this morning!

That really is a mystery. To have all 3 disappear at the same time is weird. Unless someone was stalking the girls and took the mom as well to shut her up? Hot and humid again today.

A lot of people disappear without a trace. It's disturbing when you think about it.

Enjoying my coffee before it gets too hot to drink it!

Strange things happen but it is really sad that no one gets any closure like this.

expecting thunder storms here later on today, just hope I'm back home by then.

Hey Linda...
I agree that it's quite a mystery. Seems like it wasn't voluntary cause they left so much behind!
Thanks for stopping by today!

Hey Sixbears...
It is disturbing. Wonder what happens to most of them?
Thanks for coming by today!

Hey Jo...
Something like that would drive me crazy, I'm afraid.
Thanks, sweetie, for the visit this morning!

Hey, Bubba - you know how missing kid's pictures are on milk cartons?

If I go missing, I want my picture on wine bottles so my friends will know to look for me.

Don't mean to make light of the missing 3, but there's so much bad news lately, I thought we could use a little levity. OK/ Am I forgiven?

Did you know that in 2012, 661,000 people went missing and 2079 of those cases are still not solved?

Hey Sis...
I figure I might have to sample the bottle first, just to have a starting place, ya know? Mostly bad news everywhere. Seems like the television isn't helping with the political conventions. Pass the bottle again!
Come visit when ya can. I got ice cream...!
Thanks for stopping by today!

Hey Dizzy...
Now that is so very disturbing. Lots of unanswered questions floating around!
I appreciate the visit today, buddy!
