Halloween 1990, a group of teenagers ready to go out to a party heard a truck down the road open its doors and a woman scream. Seeing as it was Halloween, they thought it was a joke and didn’t really think twice about it again. Unfortunately, that was me screaming for my life.
Sounds like the plot to a horror movie doesn’t it? “Woman found in a remote area near an abandoned farm house, cause of death: possible strangulation.” Well, this is no movie. On Sunday, December 2, 1990, I was found in an abandoned farmhouse off Oscar Talley Road near Anderson, Missouri. I was hogtied with six different types of material: nylon rope, lead rope, coaxial cable, telephone cable, parachute cord, and clothesline. As if using only one wasn’t bad enough. The only evidence that they found from my killer was a single blonde hair and a fingernail.
As for my identity, no one has any idea. I was found in a blue jean coat, Lee blue jeans, a white T-shirt, and white fitness brand high-top sneakers, size 7 ½. I am between 5'1" and 5'4" tall, 21 to 31 years of age, and around 100 to 140 pounds. The sheriff’s department believes I was not a local, but the one thing they do know is I was well taken care of because I recently had a lot of dental work done. This means that I have people out there who cared about me enough to make sure my health was in tiptop shape. Those same people are probably still wondering where I am.
The sheriff’s department named me “Grace Doe” because according to everyone, it would only be by the grace of God that they would find out who I really am. Please help me prove all these people wrong and bring me my identity back.
