Found on September 12, 1976

Who is "Woodlawn Jane Doe?"

Can you help police identify her?

It has been nearly 40 years since Sunday, September 12, 1976, when the body of a young woman was discovered along an access road in Woodlawn, Maryland, near the Lorraine Park Cemetery. She had suffered greatly before dying; she was drugged and tortured.

What Happened to Jennifer Kesse?

BY DARK SLEUTH

  
  Missing since January 24, 2006  

Three seconds... 


On January 24, 2006, a security camera in an Orlando residential complex captured footage at three-second intervals.  That was all it took for the person of interest, in the Jennifer Kesse abduction case, to have his face obscured forever on video.  Nearly ten years later, this remains one of the most frustrating aspects of the investigation.

Springfield CrimeStoppers
(417) 864-TIPS (8477)

     Missing since the early morning hours of June 7, 1992.

Two teenage friends, Suzie Streeter and Stacy McCall, were out the night of Saturday, June 6, 1992 celebrating their high school graduation.  After attending a few parties, they decided to sleep at Streeter's home.  Their previous plan was to spend the night at a motel and visit a local water park on Sunday.

Streeter's mom, Sherrill Levitt, had spent her night at home, painting a chest of drawers.  The young women returned to the Levitt-Streeter house.  Family and friends found evidence that Streeter and McCall had taken off their makeup and prepared for bed.  

It is unknown what happened, but the three women went missing sometime between 2 a.m. and 9 a.m. that Sunday.  


                                      How did they disappear?

Greetings Sleuths


After years of reading fictional and true crime stories, I've decided to start a blog.  Dark Sleuth will focus primarily on unsolved and missing persons cases.  By sharing these stories, I hope that we come one step closer to the answers.  

I may also feature posts on crime fiction books, as well as films, especially if they were inspired by true crime. My particular interests are in history and research. 


Thanks,

Dark Sleuth
