A woman missing for seven years calls her mother to say she’s alive, but is later found murdered.

Holly Krewson

She dropped out and worked as a waitress

CASE DETAILS

La Mesa, California, was Holly Krewson’s hometown. From a very young age, she dreamed of becoming a movie star. Holly’s mother, Gwen Krewson, knew her daughter was special growing up:

“She started in beauty pageants, and she loved the attention and the beautiful dresses. We kind of put her on a pedestal.”

Holly was seen with her violent boyfriend

But Holly’s life wasn’t all pageants and dresses. According to her mother, Holly was molested by a trusted family friend when she was 11. A few years later, her parents divorced. Soon after, Gwen started to notice a change in her daughter:

“When she got into her middle teens, I think she started hanging around with the wrong crowd and kind of lost interest in the dancing and the pageants.  She wanted to be a grown-up.”

Holly dropped out of school and began working as a waitress. She ended up with a lover who was abusive and violent.  Several times, he was arrested for beating her. But each time, he convinced Holly to take him back.

The caller said her name was “Holly”

Gwen says she didn’t see Holly very often, but in the spring of 1995, Holly came to see her at work. Gwen didn’t know this was the last time she would ever see her daughter. Over the next several weeks, Gwen tried to find Holly, but had no luck.  When Gwen reported her missing to the police, she was told they couldn’t help because Holly was an adult and there was no evidence of foul play.

Two years later, in 1997, with Holly still missing, police took a closer look at her boyfriend’s criminal past. La Mesa Police Department Detective Vincent Brown, investigated the case:

“Because the boyfriend was arrested at least three different times for domestic violence with Holly, detectives from La Mesa Police Department polygraphed her boyfriend, and it appeared at the time that he had no involvement in her disappearance.”

On Holly’s 30th birthday, a San Diego newspaper publicized the story of Gwen’s search for her daughter. A local psychic named Joyce saw the story and says she immediately began receiving images of Holly:

“I started to get little flashes, like short little images, is how I receive a lot of my psychic information. And my first impression was seeing her in a hospital bed. So I knew right off that I wanted to contact this mother, who was obviously missing her daughter something fierce. “

Was Holly in an Ohio hospital?

Joyce told Gwen that Holly had left California to escape her abusive relationship:

“My feeling was that there was a car accident, and she was in a somewhat semi-comatose condition. As I sat there, I started to feel some other things. I told her first of all that I saw Holly in a hospital gown, in an extended care facility.”

Joyce believed Holly possibly received treatment at a hospital named Marymount. She also claimed the towns Marysville and Kenwood were significant, but she couldn’t make any further connections. Three months later, Gwen received a phone call that would change her life:

“I hear this weak little voice say, ‘Hi, Mama.’ and I didn’t hear anything. And I said, ‘Who is this?’ And the voice said, ‘Holly,’ kind of strained, like she was crying. And I said, ‘Holly, is that you?’”

Gwen had a tape recorder handy and recorded part of the call. Just before the short conversation was disconnected, the caller told Holly’s mother that she was in Ohio.  Gwen was sure it was Holly:

“I know it was her. I mean, mothers know these things.”

With the new possibility that Holly was in Ohio, Gwen studied the information the psychic had given her:

“I got my atlas out and I found Marysville. There’s a Marysville there. There’s a Marymount Hospital, right on the map.”

Gwen contacted several Ohio hospitals. However, they were not allowed to release any medical information, even if they had treated Holly.  Then, investigators later turned up a promising lead. The owner of a campground outside La Mesa reported seeing Holly a few months after she was believed to have disappeared.  According to Detective Brown:

“Holly Krewson, her boyfriend, and one other person, the last name of Humby, were up at a campground in Julian, California. Throughout the weekend, Holly’s boyfriend was creating trouble. It sounded like he was drinking too much and creating just general disturbance. They were finally asked to leave and as they left the campground, the boyfriend pointed a gun at the owner and threatened to come back and shoot him, because they were being kicked out of the park.

Gwen says she will not rest until she finds out what happened to Holly:

“If I gave up hope, you know, whoever took her or killed her or is holding her captive or whatever the case may be, they’ve won. And they’re not going to win. As long as I’m alive, I’m going to keep looking for my daughter.”

Update:

A year after Holly disappeared, skeletal remains were found near San Diego. Dental records later confirmed that the remains were those of Holly Krewson.  Authorities won’t release any details other than to say her case is now considered a homicide.

    she was probably killed accidentally or purposely by her boyfriend. I know this took them some time to piece everything together before realizing they did find her bones earlier, but did they ever revisit the boyfriend?? especially if he had a past? he should’ve been looked at again

    So sge went missing in ’95. Remains were discovered in ’96 but no one knew remains belonged to her. 5 years later, newspaper article comes out, psychic contacts the mother tells her she is in Ohio etc. 3 months later, mom receives a weird phone call and a “sighting” of Holly at a park is reported. Unsolved Mysteries airs the episode in 2002, mom dies in 2003. The remains found back in ’96 are officially identified as being Hollys in 2006. Very Sad

    Who called the mom? A hoax? Could it be determined how soon after her disappearance that the girl died?

    Having just seen this show today, long after the fact, I believe the hospital that Holly was possibly in, was in Mariemont, a suburb of Cincinnati, Ohio. There was a Mercy Hospital there a decade or so ago. It is not a hospital now but is still a medical facility. 5 minutes away is a neighboring community Kenwood, where expressway I-71 runs right through.

    Just an FYI in case this might still be investigated to help build a case against her murderer.

      Her body was found not far from home a year after she went missing. Computer links never put it together.

      I was thinking the same thing. And Marysville is less than two hours from Kenwood and Mariemont. I believe there was a St. Mary’s Hospital in Cincinnati at one time as well. Not sure when it stopped serving patients though.

      She was never in Ohio. Do you honestly believe in these money sucking heartless scumbag psychics?? All they want is your money and are well known to contact relatives of people who have recently disappeared to tell them bs exactly like this one did. They have “visions” and “flashes” and that they know where their relative is. I’d bet everything I own that this pathetic psychic drained a ton of money put of this girls mother. And unfortunately they usually fall for it too because they are desperate for something, anything.
      I knew as soon as I read it that the call was a hoax from the scumbag psychic. Either it was her making the call or she paid someone to make it. That’s why it was a “weak, strained” voice and the call was very short. It never was the daughter.
      She was never in Ohio, she never even left California.
      I despise these pathetic, low life, money grubbing psychics. They are bottom feeders. They always will be.
