A biker gang leader is wanted by police.
When Nadine Jelovcic of Gary, Indiana, hadn’t heard from her sister, Margie, for several days, she went to her house. Nadine was concerned to find many personal items that Margie always took when traveling. Margie’s car was also left abandoned in the driveway.
Why did Margie Jelovcic suddenly leave? Was it of her own free will? Or was there something more sinister going on?
Six months earlier, Margie’s life seemed ideal. She was a happy newlywed, planning for a bright future with her husband, Nasser, in Detroit. But just six months after their wedding, Nassar was killed in a traffic accident. Shattered, Margie decided to move back to Gary, Indiana.
Margie immersed herself in her new job. She managed the night shift at the tavern owned by her mother. It’s where she first encountered a biker named Randy Yager.
Yager was a high-ranking member of a notorious biker gang, the Outlaws. He had an outgoing, scruffy charm, an air of danger, which was attractive to the vulnerable young widow. Margie’s sister, Nadine, had met him:
But Yager’s charisma covered up a darker side to his personality. Margie had no idea he was an ex-convict with a long criminal record. He and other members of the Outlaws were under investigation for racketeering, drug dealing, and murder.
Soon after they met, Margie began dating Yager. Her family is not sure if or when Margie found out about his criminal past. The only thing they know for certain was that she began to change, according to Nadine:
Three months later, Margie left with Yager on a trip to Las Vegas. At that very moment, United States Marshals had already begun an operation to arrest Yager and several members of the Outlaws. Seventeen members of the gang were indicted for a Midwest crime spree that included bombings, robberies, and six murders. But U.S. Marshals had been unable to locate Randy Yager. Margie’s mother was worried:
Meanwhile, 1,500 miles away, in Nevada, Federal agents traced Yager to Las Vegas, but it was too late. He and Margie had apparently fled the city. Two weeks passed, then Margie returned to Gary. Her family was relieved. But Nadine says Margie remained distant:
Three months after her return, Margie disappeared again. Patrick Amerson, of the United States Marshal Service was involved in the investigation:
It’s been several years since Margie disappeared. Nadine says that her family believes that even if she is with Yager, that she is no longer his girlfriend, but his victim:
Over the years, several mysterious phone calls have been made during the morning to the tavern. The caller never speaks, and only after a long pause, hangs up. For her mother, these calls offer the slender hope that they will one day see Margie again:
Margie Jelovcic is not wanted for any crime. She is classified only as a missing person.
Randy Yager and Margie Jelovcic were discovered living together in a Mexican Beach town called Rosarita. When Mexican authorities arrested Yager and found him in possession of a gun, Margie fled in their car, leading police on a high speed chase. She lost control of her car, flipped it three times, and was found dead beside her vehicle.
