CASE DETAILS

Tami Lynn Leppert was an uncommonly beautiful child.   She entered her first beauty contest when she was just four years old.   By the age of 16, she had already competed in more than 300 beauty contests and had taken home 280 crowns.   Her mother, Linda Curtis, a theatrical and modeling agent, guided Tami’s career:

“I was constantly busy running her around to where she had to go and what she had to do.   And I enjoyed it.   I enjoyed watching her excel because she always went for the best that she could go for, the highest level.”

At 16, Tami had won 280 beauty contests

Wing Flannagan was a close family friend.   He and Tami were like brother and sister:

“She would bend over and kiss me on the cheek and I couldn’t quite ever get it completely off.   It was rather embarrassing to walk around with this mark.   I think actually I learned to wear it proudly after a while because it was almost a status symbol.”

In July of 1982, Tami landed a part in the teen exploitation film, “Spring Break”.   When the movie completed filming, Tami went un-chaperoned to a weekend party.   She came back a different person.   According to Wing, Tami’s behavior began to take on paranoid overtones:

“Sometimes I’d ask her, what was on her mind, if anything was bothering her.   And she’d usually change the subject or she’d say oh, nothing you know and then try to laugh it off.”

After filming Spring Break, Tami changed

According to her mother, Linda, she even thought someone was trying to kill her:

“Then she said Mom, what would you say if I told you somebody was trying to kill me. I just took a deep breath, and I said, do you think somebody’s trying to kill you, Tami? She said, yes.”

Tami feared for her life

A steady retreat into isolation soon followed for Tami.   Linda and Wing had no way of ascertaining which of Tami’s fears were real and which were paranoid delusions.   After two weeks of virtual seclusion, Tami Lynn was offered a small part in the big budget Al Pacino film, “Scarface,” which began shooting in Miami in March of 1983.   She stayed with a family friend, Walter Liebowitz.   According to Walter, all went well until the fourth day of filming:

“I received a call from the casting director to tell me that Tami had a breakdown on the set.   They said that it was a scene where someone was supposed to be shot and had artificial blood spurt out.   And they said when Tami was watching the scene, she started crying hysterically and it got so bad that they had to take her to a trailer.   She was in a tremendous state of fear, anxiety… What it was that caused this great fear in her I don’t know.   When I spoke with Tami’s mother, I told her that she should take Tami to a doctor and also take her to the police to find out of the problem was psychological or if there was some basis in fact that someone was actually trying to kill her and get to the bottom of it.”

Tami smashed a window in her home

Tami Lynn quit the film and went back home.   At her mother’s insistence, Tami did talk to the local sheriff, but apparently never mentioned that she felt her life was in danger.   Even with her family, Tami’s paranoia ran rampant.   According to Wing, Tami was now convinced that someone was trying to poison her:

“There were good days and there were bad days.   There were days when she was almost normal. And there were other days when she was real edgy.”

Then on July 1 st , Tami finally snapped.   She began smashing all the windows in her house and started attacking Wing.   It was at that moment that Linda knew something was seriously wrong with her daughter:

“I handled that incident, but I didn’t know if I was going to be able to handle the next one.”

She was last seen in Cocoa Beach, FL

Tami’s mother checked her into a mental health center for a complete physical and psychiatric evaluation.   Doctors found no evidence of drug or alcohol use.   After 72 hours of observation, Tami was released.   The following day, Tami and a friend drove to the local beach, when according to Detective Jim Skragg of the Cocoa Beach, Florida Police Department, they started to argue:

“This friend picked her up at her home and they drove to the beach. And we talked to him.   And he basically stated that they’d become involved in a verbal argument.   She had requested that he let her out near the glass bank in Cocoa Beach and he complied.”

Tami’s friend said he dropped her off about five miles from her house. She was barefoot and carried no purse. According to Detective Skragg, it was the last time Tami Lynn would be seen alive:

“She disappeared without a trace.   We talked to some of her close friends.   They felt strongly that Tami was having problems at home and… she wanted to leave home.”

Tami Lynn Leppert is five feet four inches tall, and at the time of her disappearance, weighed 103 pounds.   She has blonde hair and hazel eyes.

    This is a strange case mostly because the UM segment appears to be leaving out way more details than usual. They don’t name the friend who dropped off the day she disappeared which is somewhat unusual but not completely unheard of. They also say nothing about what the doctors who observed Tami for 72 hours thought other than “there were no signs of drug or alcohol use/” Ok, that’s great but were there any signs that she had a psychological disorder that she may need help for. And this party she went to…..why didn’t anybody (police, private investigator) try to find out who else was at the party and what happened there, if anything. The Liebowitz guy suggested her mother have Tami talk to the police – did this happen? Is there any indication, in other words, whether she was delusional or whether someone was after her or what? In fact, the only people UM talked to in that segment is her mother, that Wing Flanagan guy and the Liebowitz dude. There’s no indication that any authorities are even involved in the case. It’s very strange and indicates there’s a lot more to this story than was told in this segment

    There is a reason that she wanted to leave home so desperately. She thought someone in her own home was trying to kill her. She was afraid of her step father and the family made up the story of money laundering. Her mother had her committed to an institution once. She ran away to be free. I don’t know if she survived.

    I just saw this on Amazon video.. I was hoping that when I searched for her I would find an update. To my dismay there is none. I hope they find what happened to her.
    Everyone keeps forgetting the money laundering..she was afraid to be killed because she knew about someone laundering money..so when she saw that scene at the set ..she most likley freaked out because all she could think of was someone killing her..

    It’s obvious something terrible happened at the party for Spring Break…. the question that so many have asked and I concur Knowing she was in this mental state why would a “friend” drop her off 5 miles from home? Even though there’s a possibility their argument could’ve made her want to get out of the car, it doesn’t justify a reason in leaving her that far away from home just doesn’t sound right.

      Idk, I think her Mom knows more than she lets on. She was put into a mental institute for 72 hrs and she possibly wanted to run away from home. BUT, I think someone gone this long, especially a celebrity, she was probably killed. She was barefoot, penniless, 17 yrs old and gorgeous, dropped off somewhere in Florida. A very easy target. I hope she is happy and peaceful wherever she is.

    I think when I first saw this story about Tammy, they were referring her to Tammy Lyn Lebowitz,and kept l Iooking up for that name and I couldnt find any results.I remember they kept saying she was in 300 beauty pagents since she was a baby. So I find it kind of hard that they would let her in a movie “Scarface” when they can easily see she is way too young to be in such a violent movie.Like if you were Tami’s mother you would worry so much about her. I read that Scarface was actully rated x, because there were so many super violent sceenes, that eventually had to be cut out ,because they wouldnt let it be in the movie theatres.Plus Tami was only in the movie for abou 1-2 minutes. Plus every scene was super violent and there were no children in the movie,nobody was actually younger then Tami. Maybe one of the stagehands kidnapped Tami, perhaps they are really addicted to cocaine,and got her addicted ,too. For exampl the movie is three hours long and there isnt one teenager ,besides Tami in the whole movie,maybe the actors are really giving Tami lots of cocaine ,thats probably why she went beserk Alot of young women who are addicted to drugs , run away to Hollywood ,back in the 80’s. Maybe she was really convinced that she was a famous movie star all ready ,perhaps she was an alcoholic ,too,and she thought that she was going to have the lead role as Tony’s wife instead of Michele Pfeiffer. Maybe she was scared because in “Spring break” the actors are really her own age, in ” Scarface” they are around 40 years old and they have Rolls Royces and banks in Switzerland ?

    Did anyone check the photos that convicted murder/rapist William Richard Bradford had taken? They released photos of 54 women he took pictures of (some who were murdered, some raped, most unidentified.) I think that #4 looks a lot like Tami, only with brown hair.
    Here’s the link if anyone wants to take a look. He was arrested in 1984.

    Maybe the killer was the same person who admitted to the Jon Bennet Ramsey murder in 2006. They said , Tami was in 300 beauty contests as a child” and so was Jon Bennet. Maybe he was on vacation in Florida and was watching her and became very jealous. Lots of people go there for spring break also. John Mark Karr could easily afford to go to Florida .if he could afford to go to central America and Thailand. Why would he admit to killing Jon Bennet, then as soon as he goes to court he denies everything? Maybe he wanted to go to college in Florida and somehow met Tami on the beach?

      Something happened to her at the party, bad enough to change her, she could have been gang raped and the friend who dropped her off barefoot should be interrogated sternly! The friend dropping her off was probably a lie! They all say we/I dropped them off! I have heard of people who were partying and someone put LSD in their drink, and they were never the same! She could have been drugged then raped!

    There really are only two theories here. One is a suicide, which is unlikely, since she cared so much about her appearance I doubt she would harm herself. The other and most probably is that she was a vicitm of the “Speed Freak” serial killers who killed dozens of women looking like Tammy in California around the time. They often lured vicitms with promises of modeling jobs or taking photos, etc. This for me is the most probable outcome, they hit the bones way out in the mountains so Im sure no remains will be found. Tracing her final steps and badgering the guy who let her out of the car are useless, since you are looking at the probable victim of a serial killer

      Nothing in the case points to it being the work of a serial killer as of yet. As for “badgerring” Keith Roberts. He failed to show up for 2 face to face Police meetings. Can you spell RAT? 😉

    I think that Tami may be my biological mother. I was born on October 14th 1982 in south Carolina however my birth mother listed a woman by the name diane w davis with a florida number as her emergency contact and under father she put down unknown. Maybe her mood swings we’re pregnancy related. Under mother it says Tami l hope however there is a chance that she lied about her last name on my birth certificate, well by using a fake last name if she was in fear for her life would make sense . If she was terrified for her life that would also explain why she listed my father as unknown and also for why she put me up for adoption. I’ve been searching for my mother for most of my life. If any of this information rings any bells for any of you guys…..please email me at celonajulie@gmail.com.

      Idk how famous she was. She was in just a few movies and a TINY role in Scarface as an extra, basically. I think she was taken before her career could take off. She’d surface somewhere by now. Especially someone that won almoat 300 beauty pageants

    I am finding her information and information on others who were around her around the time she disappeared. I am looking into getting her actual case File to try and find her. It has been 32 years since she has been with her family and that needs to change. If I spent 32 years away from my family I don’t know what I would do. So me and a few of my friends are going to look into her file find out what happened to her. I’m terribly sorry for her family and close friends.

    I am currently researching the case of Natalee Holloway, which has some similarities to the Tammy Lynn Leppert story. Both were 18-year-old attractive blonde women who have disappeared without trace. Natalee went missing more recently, in Aruba in 2005, but in both cases the possibilities of involvement of organised crime are quite high, either involving human trafficking (probably to satisfy the lucrative Middle East market) or the adult film industry (primarily based near Los Angeles). In both cases these women had recently been involved in ‘Spring Break’ activities, which as well as being relatively harmless fun are also prime stalking grounds for the ‘spotters’ who try to solicit ‘talent’ into short-term vice-related opportunities. For many young women who have been brought up in a high-pressure performance-orientated but fundamentally conservative family environment, the idea of ‘going off the reservation’ is a very attractive experiment, and they are thus ripe for exploitation by some highly dangerous people who have little regard for human life. It is quite possible that Tammy and Natalee were seduced into the dark world of this kind of organised crime. If they were, and they survived, they would probably have resurfaced into normal society within two or three years in a ‘Prodigal Daughter’ scenario, sadder, emotionally scarred but hopefully wiser. The fact that they have not, after 33 and 11 years respectively, sadly strongly suggests that both are no longer alive. US Law Enforcement will never close such ‘Cold Cases’ until the victims would have passed their 100th birthdays, but the fact is that unless a perpetrator makes a credible deathbed confession, or the victims’ names come up in a Plea Bargain or other case, leading to the recovery of identifiable physical evidence, resolution of either case is highly unlikely. My sympathies to the families involved, but one must accept that many unsolved mysteries do remain unsolved for ever.

    I believe she was schizophrenic. ..not properly diagnosed or treated. Back in those days it was more difficult to treat mental illness. She more then likely committed suicide. End of story…her remains were left in the ocean and never found due to a never ending sea of water.

    I think this case was most definitely not investigated thoroughly enough. There are so many different theories on what could have happened and not one authority has made efforts to look into it. I think that because of new technology, the case should be reopened.

    This is my theory and of course, it’s a theory. Ok, Tammy Leppert was feeling like a star and wanted to live like a star so she goes to this party after “Spring Break” filming and does a good bit of blow and ends up getting rapped by some scum bags there. they tell her that if she says anything they’ll kill her. So of course she’s going to be acting different because she was just rapped and she’s paranoid because I’m sure that these goes were watching her and waiting for her to slip up. Maybe the guys wanted more of her so they kidnapped her, maybe they were scared that she would snitch or maybe they just wanted to kill her. Either way, I think she met the people that murdered her at this weekend party or someone that was bad news and maybe the “friend” that dropped her off 5 miles from her home was part of the murder. Is there even evidence that this guys story is true?

    I think she was being stalked, women who are stalked for long periods of time are known to get ptsd. She may have met this stalker at the shooting of her first movie i mean she was beautiful and this shoot would of brought attention, lots of it. He also may of raped her and afraid she would fess up he killed her. Gruesome stuff makes me sick but in my opinion that’s what this.

    If it was confirmed that she was dropped off and still had time to go to the bank and hitch a ride back home then the friend has nothing to do with her dissapearence. Its been a very long time now, I doubt there is still evidence of anything, investigations are useless unless someone comes with a confession.

    You know I read so many crazy stories of missing people, murders, and other violent crimes acted upon innocent people that happened during the 80’s and it quite disgusts me how none of the cases got justice, were ever solved, or police not investigating thoroughly or at all period. It’s just crazy to me. Considering the fact that police technology and skills weren’t that great back than either compared to now still doesn’t help because you always hear of them losing evidence on file or not remembering or there being none at all. I’d say the last resort would be to get a psychic involved that’s known for solving cases like this that can’t be solved by police or anyone for that matter, they actually take the time investigating and get work done the right away. It seems to me the cops didn’t care or pay much attention to tammys case and the fact they have no reports on her reporting to them what she knew, have no evidence or barely any rememberance about this case is just pathetic. Why wasn’t anything kept in file? Why isn’t there a name of the man who last seen with her and why wasn’t he interrogated long enough and let go? He obviously knows something or did something with having being the last one to see her. You can’t tell me there were no witnesses at all either, what bout the bank or gas station? Did they have any videos on tape of her if she was nearby the gas station or bank? Makes no type of sense. I pray for this woman and her family that has to suffer not knowing or being able to lay her to rest. I hope one day she is found and her family can officially be at ease. I’d say the last best resort is to really look into finding a psychic to help find Tammy might have a good chance.

    The facts and my personal opinion regarding the case is as follows:
    1) I believe she may have been pregnant at the time of her disappearance.
    2)According to my research UM didn’t get some of the things correct. From what I understand she DID have shoes on as well as had her purse. And the color of the car she was last in was white not black. (Not entirely a big deal from the reenactment aspect)
    3) She apparently went from where she was dropped off to a bank. And that’s where she was last seen. If I remember correctly she cashed a check.
    4) I DO NOT believe by any stretch of the imagination that the family had ANYTHING to do with her disappearance. Despite what a lot of lunatics have spread all over the Internet. There was NO KNOWN MOTIVE for her mother or family to want to do harm to her.
    5) Now considering the fact that she was terrified to go out of her house. And the fact she from what we are lead to believe was terrified of being poisoned etc. And the fact that she may have been pregnant. One could speculate that it had something to do with the person who may have been the father of the child. Now this is speculation and I have yet to corroborate this with anyone related to the case. I have read forums that are out of date and other web threads. And I believe Suzanne has a Facebook page dedicated to Tammy. Who turned 51 in Feb. She disappeared a few months before I was born to give you an idea of how old I am. Yet this case is fascinating to me. It’s unfortunate that so many crazies can spread such BS about this case. One more note. I have read in a few threads that the family believed that Kevin was not investigated properly and he seemed to take his time trying to assist with the investigation. And I also read somewhere that he refused a polygraph. Now as I said. It’s hard to decipher a lot of the nonsense people have spread about this case. So that particular aspect may not be correct. Regarding Kevin. However personally I do believe he knows MORE than he let on. And I was not impressed by the interview he had for the UM segment. But thats me.

    I think of this case pretty often. I am a WebSleuth and I have tried contacting Suzanne and Wing Flanagan and anyone else I can find to see if I can help with the case. I can never seem to get a response. However I have noticed there is a lot of loonies that say they “know” things. I don’t understand why either. Some are on this page too. I have looked into and investigated many cases. I haven’t solved any or been involved in solving any. But I’ve yet to see the amount of loons posting crazy crap like I have with this case. So strange. The wild accusations. The people who say the “knew” her. I feel really bad for the actual family and friends who loved her and have to deal with the idiots spreading nonsense. Now I understand why I cannot get a response. If I were them. I wouldn’t either.

      You didn’t even know she has siblings and admit that you have been involved in many investigations and have solved NONE…yet you insist on harassing this poor family with your subpar detective “skills.” They wont respond to you because they, unlike you, can tell you are no good at investigating. Again, you’ve been involved in many cases and haven’t been able to solve any, and two, she’s been dead over 30 years and in all this time you didn’t know she had a sibling. And again…you continue to harass these poor people. It’s weird. Please stop contacting her family.

    This was 1 of the most mysterious cases. A Young Woman who has beauty and success suddenly goes missing. Could be two theories. She disappeared into the mental health wards psych worlds somebody without any ID or knowing who she was. Or she was killed early on by a serial killer predator as she tried to start a new life. Heat wrenching story. Hope Tami is found alive.

  41. It Don't matter

    Facts:
    It is uncommon for child actors/actresses to make the transition to adult actor/actress. Tammy was one of the common who fail.
    It is common practice for those going into the sex industry professional to change their name. This is generally a security and privacy measure for one past and family and friends. This particular case had the additional specific incentive regarding the fact Tammy’s mother had a child talent scout business
    It is a fact Tammy’s mother was once a beauty queen herself, see history of miss have-a-tampa, she knew the business and as anyone with that many years in the business would have contacts or know who to contact with the dark side of the business. Walter Lebowitz was a friend of those involved, it was Walter’s place Tammy went to upon leaving the set of Scarface. Walter was/is a disbarred Florida Lawyer, busted for child trafficking. Hence the related advice on what to in this transition.
    To change ones name requires a legal process before a judge and should the judge so chose, the judge may require evidence of sound mind and adult age, hence the 72 hr. psychiatric evaluation. Upon meeting the legal requirements of professional evaluation immediately went to the court house to finalize the identity change, which was walking distance from the glass bank.

    Of course given the purpose of the identity change, there had to be a cover story and backup plan should it be publicly found out. That backup plan was that she would claim not remembering who she was.

    In effort to build an illusion and in need of an explanation regarding Tammy’s mother’s position, with Tammy’s mother contacts and persistence her mother managed to get Unsolved Mysteries to do not one but two episodes.

    Tammy’s mother was at one time under psychiatric observation where she became pregnant with twins. It was because of this the twins were adopted out at age one.
    Suzanne is one of the twins. The other has and may still work in law enforcement.

    Due to the adult choice Tammy made through legal means, law enforcement is bound to keep quiet about this. There is a statute of limitation as to how long law enforcement must keep the information locked away. its 50 years after the last person involved has passed away.

    Tammy’s mother passed away due complications resulting from being Diabetic an d having Hepatitis C. It is possible and probable the Hepatitis contributed to an event upon which Tammy came to have a fear of blood, if such is actually true.

    The supposed death threat was nothing more than a comment Tammy over heard regarding her failure to hang her cloths up on returning from California on a closet rod no more then three feet away, instead of just dumping them on some boxes.

    In the identity transition she played on family and friends to generate the cover story support in the way of reactions by those she played. Publicity.

      I cannot confirm that Walter Lebowitz was disbarred for Child Trafficking. I was able confirm he was disbarred though. NOT for Child Trafficking. If I am wrong. Please shoot me a link. Otherwise I am assuming by your wild accusations that you’re a Loon. It is comments like this that make investigations more difficult.

    Her behavior sounds like paranoid schizophrenia. The help available to family for an adult with this disease is close to none. Often they end up living on the streets or worse. This is a very sad story with no ending yet. Would love to see a happy ending.

    The thing about her being dropped off 5 miles is way off. It is nearly 15 miles and two inter-coastal waterway bridges away from Rockledge. I’m from Orlando and was at the Beach that day. I actually spoke with Tammy and the guy she was with on the beach near Ron Jon’s Surf Shop. There were 4 or five others there and we chatted a bit about how poor the waves were that day. They said they were leaving and walked off toward where I assumed they parked. About a half hour later, I decided to leave and fueled up at the Exxon Station right by the Glass Bank Building and saw her hitching north, which would be the way for her to get home. When I went in to pay she was right in front of the station on A1A. When I came out less than 2 minutes later a Blue Maverick 4 door was pulling off of the side of the road heading north and she was gone. It was close but not close enough to see a passenger in the car. I thought nothing of it until I saw the report on the local news a few days later. I called the Cocoa beach police to inform them. A detective asked me a few questions, took my name and contact information and never heard back from them. In the fall of 1984 I enlisted in the Air Force and ended up stationed at Patrick AFB just south of Cocoa Beach in January of 1985. That summer there was a story in the Florida Today about Tammy near the 2 year anniversary of her going missing and I again contacted the police. I spoke to the same detective and he barely remembered my first call to him. It shows you how much interest the cops had in this matter.

    She saw something she was not supposed to see, prob a drug deal or someone getting hurt. If she’s not dead then she eather left on her own with out seeking help or someone took her and is hidding her. She would be 50 year’s old by now. So I hope someone finds her soon.

    True. Her reaction to blood on the set could suggest that she had witnessed something traumatic like a murder at the party, if so her life could have been threatened in order to keep her silent. She could of had some off the wall sick n twisted stalker harassing her or she could have been raped at this party, hell it could be all three. I think she saw too much, knew too much or something terrible happened to her and some lowlife piece of crap killed her. I wonder if the police took a look, a real good look at this “friend” that just left her stranded five miles from home, shoeless with no purse. Apparently she wasn’t happy at home and was planning to leave according to close friends. Any one else find Wing the family friend creepy and what’s up with the whole starting beauty pageants thing at four and entering more than three hundred by the time she was sixteen. Did she love doing it or did her mother love her doing it. So many different variables to this case, so many unanswered questions. A part of me hopes that she just ran away and started a new life somewhere , happy and safe. I hope her loved ones one day find answers n have some kind of closure someday.

    It sounds like she witnessed something at the party, like a murder, if the sight of blood is what freaked her out on set.

      I agree with you. The story said that she saw something, not that something happened that she didn’t want to talk about …

    I think she was raped at the party and then her life threatened if she told anyone. That would explain why she wouldn’t speak up and why she acted crazy. Anyone who had been raped and then their life threatened would act that way. I wonder if the “friend” that had picked Tami up was guilty for what had happened to her? I think he has something to do with her disappearance.

      I think you’re right. Maybe she was raped at the weekend party. Which explains why she came back home as a different person and why she was having a breakdown. Her rapist must’ve threatened her that he would kill her if she says one word. When she refused to talk to someone on the phone, she must’ve thought it was her rapist on the phone.
      What if it was her agent on the phone? When she disappeared, she could’ve been kidnapped or murdered. Or maybe ranaway from home. Which explains why she never went back home. What if her rapist had found her, took her away or killed her? She must be dead. Which explains why she’s nowhere to be found alive and well.
      She should’ve gone back home. And she also could’ve reported a rape to the police.

    I think you’re right. Something must’ve happened to her at the party. Maybe she was raped. Or maybe someone was stalking her. Which is why she thought that someone was going to kill her. She must’ve been kidnapped, or got lost, or ran away, or wondered off. Or maybe she’s dead. Which is why she’s no where to be found. Has anybody seen Tami wondering around the states? She would be 49 or 50 years old by now.

      First time I have read this. First thought I had was that she saw something happen really horrific at that party and she was scared to death. Maybe she was threatened if she told she would be killed. Or she was viciously raped and threatened. And I agree the friend who dropped her off with no shoes and no purse seems rather weird. I would never leave a friend 5 miles from home something isn’t right with this story.

      Many an obviously fruitcake psychopath garden variety sexual predator (societal termite), will stalk and threaten his victims so as to scare his victims to not call the police. These misogynists who are crazy beyond any repair and redemption threaten to rape sisters, mothers, grandmothers and kill them and dispose of their bodies where nobody would find them.

    Sad story this family need closure. Her friend picked her up at her house, why didn’t he drop her off at her house, instead of dropping her 5 blocks from her house, knowing she had no shoes or her purse also seeing she was upset some friend he is. I wonder what could have happened to her? Has anyone else seen any other sightings of her since her friend dropped her off.

    • wireflight

      [corrected] Not 5 blocks: 5 miles. And that (see info elsewhere on this page) is roughly a third of the actual distance (15 miles, 2 bridges).

      I don’t recall who it was, but quite a while back, someone I was giving a ride got kinda nutso-paranoid and wanted out; I stopped and let that person out, then withdrew a short distance (but stayed in visual range) and kept an eye out while I notified LE and awaited arrival of a marked unit.

      Of course, in 1983, I didn’t have a cell phone (or even a CB radio, for that matter), but I had a pretty good idea of how to get in touch with LE by phone, either directly or indirectly (stop someone and have them call the cops), plus I would have been armed and would have taken any necessary risk to ensure the safety of someone that had trusted me.

      What freaks me out is when a cop or other official ends up being the perp.: those are supposed to be the people you can count on even when you neither have friends nor can buy any. They’re supposed to be utterly reliable helpers, the champions of the weak and the defenseless.

      You don’t simply drop-off someone at an improper destination five miles from his or her residence, and then drive away. Examples of an improper destination include, but are not necessarily limited to: a business not frequented by the passenger, that isn’t either a hospital, police or fire station; a residence in which is not apparently sober and alert one or more of the passenger’s friends — or at least the adult nuclear-family member of such friend.

    Why did her friend drop her off 5 miles from her house; with no purse and shoes?? I know they where arguing but if your their friend leaving someone stranded seems extreme. What happend during that long weekend? For her to change her behavior. Did she get a ride from a stranger and something horrible happen? Did someone see something after her friend dropped her off? I feel that the friend knows more then they are telling. What where they arguing about? Something bad happend to this poor girl.someone saw something or knows something. Someone at that party she went saw something. The police should have looked in that direction.. Where was the party? Who did she go with?? Why not ask the people who where doing the film spring break. What cause her break down?? If it wasnt drugs then what? People don’t change their behavior overnight. What happend to that poor girl???? Somewhere someone out there knows something…. I am still supicous toward her friend that dropped her off before she disappeared. I pray for answers expeically for her family

      He dropped her off while they were on a trip to the beach. As someone who has been born and raised in Florida, it’s not uncommon at all for people to forgo shoes, and definitely a purse, when going to a beach – especially if you are a local and live close. No one brings a purse to the beach; if you do, you usually keep it locked up in your car or trunk, and that’s only for long day trips, which are usually planned. Most teenagers and young people go barefoot when at the beach or traveling there and back. With local beaches and causeways, you are parking either directly on or very close to the sand, and it’s very common to not have shoes on so you don’t trail sand and sea water in and out of your car/home.

      There is nothing extreme or weird about what the friend describes. If she was having a paranoid fit, or even just an argument, she could have demanded to be let out of the car and refused to come in; being only five miles from home, the friend probably assumed she’d call someone for a ride (gas stations always have payphones) or just walk home, which, again, is not uncommon. Kids down here sometimes hang out again gas stations near the beach; many of them have little kitchens with food and places to sit. Maybe it seems weird to you, but for young Florida natives, there is nothing strange or curious about this part of the story. If she was so paranoid already, I seriously doubt she’d hitch a ride from a stranger – most women know this is incredibly dangerous. WHERE she decided to walk after the gas station is probably key to figuring out what could have happened to her next.

      I totally Agree With You. Something happen during that Spring Break Film. Something she witness. And her friend that droped her off, he knows more. Like maybe he came back a few seconds later and tried to convince her to go back with him and lead to an argument and that argument went from bad to worse and well you know he probably didnt mean to do what he probably did. Something like could have happened. But cmon no witnesses to anything. Im pretty sure someone knows something. Someone saw something. And they dont or cant talk. A lot of time has passed is time to stop and think. How about the cops? Dont they seem a lil useless? Like didnt they ask for the right questions to the right people. Like the ones from that weekend…

      You guys have to realize this was the 80s. No video cameras on every block. I’m sure people didn’t pay attention to things like people do now since we’re more paranoid now a days. I’m sure if there were more evidence to this story, it has already been destroyed. All we can hope is she’s in a better place.
