St. Louis, Missouri Cold Cases

It is my belief that justice will be served someday.

We all will have to answer.

I find myself more interested in police cold cases these days. It all stems from the death of my grandson. The man, or should I say waste of skin, who killed him will one day be brought to justice. Jonathan's case is a cold case too.

I have decided to do a series of cold case hubs. I will start with my home city now, St. Louis, Missouri.

Please understand that some pictures and words may be very graphic.

These are cold cases I could find through searching. I am sure there will be ones missed. Please contact me and I will add them If I have enough information.

I will be doing other cities too. If you are interested in knowing about any certain city, please contact me.

I will start with the oldest and go to the newest cold cases.

On November 15, 1980, two victims were shot while seated in a blue Oldsmobile Cutlass in the 6200 block of Walsh.

Case Number 83-29584

On February 28, 1983, two men working in the 5600 Block of Clemens discovered the body of a black female victim who had been decapitated. After many years of investigations, several task forces and many pleas for witnesses to come forward, the victim has never been identified. Her head has never been discovered. Experts were able to determine the girl was between 8 and 13 years old, and that she died as a result of strangulation.

It is my understanding that this girl was buried in a cemetery that since was abandoned. Not long ago her body was exhumed and given a proper burial.

My friend Lori Vaughn ?was murdered almost a year ago no arrest were made. This is the news report: St. Louis County police are investigating the murder of a 29-year-old woman shot dead inside her Flordell Hills home Police arrived to the residence on Manette Drive around 10:20 p.m. July 16 to discover Lori Vaughn dead from gunshot wounds then later after autopsy they said she was murdered with a blunt object. I can't imagine why this happened to her she was a wife and mother of two boys she wasn't into drugs there is no reason for this and no answer to my questions.

Good for you--I am married to a former detective. These cases deserve our attention and respect. Too many victims are ignored and cases go cold for too long..GREAT hub.

I had an aunt that was murdered in 1977 in st louis and was never solved...her name was phyllis jones (leija) and she was married and had 2 little girls at that time...I have over the years, tried to find any kind of information or details on this case....and with no luck, nothing in the news or anything from that time period....I've always been interested in trying to find out what happened to her...I was one year old when this happened but have heard family talk about it over the years

I as well am looking into finding information on the Phyllis Jones (Leija) murder. Tagging onto what Vanessa said, there are two families to this day still trying to find answers and justice if at all possible after 36 years. My uncle was her husband and those two little girls are my cousins. To this day my uncle never speaks of the murder or his mudered wife, but know he would like closure for himself, his daughters, and his grandchildren.

Hello, I knew your grandson very well . I believe I have met you years ago, I have to first let you know that he was a wonderful, genuine, loving, fun and outgoing young man who would have given the shirt off his back to anyone he did or did not know. He loved his kids and loved you all very much, especially you. He wouldn't have ever hurt anyone unless protecting himself and the ones he cared about. I knew him for years and always hung out with him. I miss how caring he was towards anyone. I miss him a lot. I was supposed to be with him that night and didn't find out till it was in the whirl paper and by then it was to late. I was so hurt and upset more on the fact that I had missed his funeral and on why anyone would do this to him just why because he was such a great person . I haven't met anyone like him and I may not ever again . But I always think about him and I wonder who would do this and why aren't they caught. I pray that justice is done and that peace will be given to us all on his case. And I appreciate that your still trying and I know he's smiling down on us all. GOD GIVE US ALL PEACE AND STRENGTH !!! I know that Jesus is taking them through the rapture and hell for what they have done so I'm sure they will get what's coming to them whoever they are. Your are very strong and he always spoke highly of you so thank you for your courage and thoughtfulness. If possible can you email me with information to visit his grave site or if you don't mind post here for me and I know his name and I will look for him. And any future unity or gathering for him will be dearly appreciated. I still drive past the your home on Pen just to remember the good times we have had and I probably always will ... Thank you, God Bless and you all will always be in my prayers ..
