Kelly Dae Wilson

Kelly Dae Wilson was last seen on the 5th of January, 1992 in Gilmer, Texas at around 8:30pm, leaving her workplace (Northeast Texas Video on Buffalo Street) and heading to the bank to deposit a cheque. Kelly’s step-father found the 17-year-olds car the next morning, parked at her workplace’s car park, with all four tyres slashed.

Kelly’s purse and belongings were inside the car, the only thing that was missing was her car keys. Kelly has not been seen since that night, and to this day Kelly has not been found.

Kelly was last seen wearing a purple rugby shirt that had red, white and gold insignia, and white cuffs and collar, with stonewashed cutoff blue jeans and brown loafers. She was also wearing an assortment of rings, and her hair had been dyed blonde but her brown roots were coming through. She was around 5″7′ and 120 pounds.

In January 1994, a grand jury indicted Sargeant James York Brown and seven others from the Gilmer Police Department on charges of abduction and murder relating to Kelly’s disappearance.

Prosecutors believed that James, who was assigned to Kelly’s case, along with the seven others, kidnapped and imprisoned Kelly for up to one week, before stabbing her to death. They also believed that during the course of the week, James and the others sexually assaulted and tortured her.

It was alleged that the group were involved in a Satanic Cult and that they engaged in acts of violence and child molestation. Many of the group members who were on trial for their role in Kelly’s abduction and murder were also facing charges of child molestation as well.

However, two months later, the charges were dropped against everybody. The satanic cult was found to not exist, and everybody in the trial, including James, maintained their innocence.

One teenager named Micheal Biby confessed to slashing the tyres on Kelly’s car but claimed he had nothing to do with her disappearance. He said that he was simply “in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

Kelly’s boyfriend at the time, Chris Denton, was also questioned by police, but he was ruled out as a possible suspect. Whilst there were rumours that he confessed on his deathbed, they were false and he maintained his innocence until he died of cancer in 2009.

Kelly has been missing for over 30 years, will Kelly’s family ever get the answers they deserve?
