Leanne Marie Hausberg

Leanne Marie Hausberg was a 14-year-old girl who disappeared from a street corner in the Bensonhurst neighbourhood in Brooklyn, New York, on the 18th of March 1999 at 9:00am.

Some agencies have listed Leanne as a runaway, however, her family believe that she actually met with foul play. Leanne had written about a relationship with an older man in her diary. It is also possible that Leanne did not leave New York City.

At the time of her disappearance, Leanne was 14 years old, 5″4′ and weighed between 120-150lbs. She had brown hair, brown eyes, pierced ears and a scar on her right cheek.

Leanne was last seen wearing a blue t-shirt, blue jeans, and blue Timberland work boots. She was also wearing a red and black bubble jacket, black earrings embedded with white stones and was carrying a black wallet or purse.

Leanne has not been seen or heard from since. She is listed as being Endangered Missing on the International Missing Fandom’s page. If Leanne is still alive today, she would be 37 years old.

Monica Cassandra Carrasco

Monica Cassandra Carrasco was born on the 13th of December, 1986, to her parents Kathy and Ramon Carrasco. She lived in Balmorhea, Texas, and the locals described her as being cheerful, well-liked and easy to get along with. She was even nicknamed “Happy-Happy” in middle school due to her constant smile and positive attitude.

In 2000, Monica’s father, Ramon, passed away from a heart attack due to the treatment he was receiving for bone cancer. Monica’s family believe that this caused her to fall into a deep depression.

At the time of her disappearance, Monica was 16 years old and an 11th-grade student at Alpine High School. Monica was a focused student, with her favourite subject being science and she hoped to attend Harvard University. Monica had dreams of becoming a lawyer or getting into aeronautics and working for NASA.

Shortly before Monica went missing, she had been hospitalised due to her mental health and anorexia. When she was released from the hospital, Monica went to live with her aunt and uncle, Velma and Bela Baeza, and their children. They lived four miles east of Balmorhea. Monica decided to stay with them because she was angry at her mother for having to stay in hospital.

At 11:00pm on the 1st of October, 2003, Monica’s cousins saw her go to bed. One family member went to check on her at 1:30am, and she was still in bed asleep. However, when a family member went to wake Monica up at 6:00am, she wasn’t there.

There was no sign of foul play or any indication that someone broke into her room. The door that led from her bedroom to the outside was unlocked. This suggested that sometime between 1:30am and 6:00am on the 2nd of October, 2003, Monica left her room and went outside.

Velma and Bela think that she went for a run but never returned. However, as much as Monica loved running, she took no footwear with her. The landscape surrounding the house was rocky, rugged and ridden with cactus plants which would have been painful to walk on barefoot.

Monica also did not tell anybody she was leaving, and she also took none of her belongings with her. Monica has not been seen or heard from again.

Monica’s other uncle, Rosendo Carrasco, who was a Reeves County Justice of the Peace at one time, believes that Monica might have become disorientated from her medication, wandered out to nearby Highway 17, and accepted a ride from a passing motorist. It’s also been theorised that Monica might have left her aunt and uncle’s house to meet someone she met online.

Monica is described as being a 16-year-old white/Hispanic female who stood at 5″5′ and weighed between 100-116lbs. She had dark brown/black hair that had red streaks, dark brown eyes, pierced ears, a small mole on her left cheek, a chickenpox scar on her forehead and dimples in both cheeks. Monica suffered from depression and schizophrenia, but she left her medication behind. Monica was also recovering from anorexia.

Monica was last known to be wearing a beige nightgown, however, NamUs lists her as last being seen in a beige shirt and teal shorts. Monica may also be carrying a large white or black bible with her.

If Monica is still alive today, she would be 35 years old.

Girly Chew Hossencofft

Girly Chew Hossencrofft was a 36-year-old woman who went missing on the 9th of September, 1999 from Albuquerque, New Mexico. Girly is presumed to be deceased, however, her body has never been found.

Shortly before going missing, Girly confined in a few of her colleagues that she was worried her husband may turn to violence. Her husband is described as being a “con-man” and was having an affair with a woman called Linda Henning.

Both Linda and Girly’s husband were ultimately convicted of Girly’s murder. This was largely due to a large amount of blood found at the crime scene, in which investigators concluded that a woman of Girly’s size would not have survived losing that amount of blood. Linda denies having any involvement in Girly’s murder.

Girly is described as being a Malaysian-American woman who stood at 5″1′ and weighed 95lbs. She had long black hair and brown eyes. At the time of her disappearance, she was 36 years old. If she is still alive today, she would be 58 years old.

Is Girly still alive?

Kaarst John Doe

Kaarst John Doe is the name given to an unidentified man who was found deceased at the edge of a forest on the BAB 52 close to Kaarst, Germany. He was found on the 30th of November, 1992.

He had died from multiple gunshot wounds to the neck, which indicated some kind of execution.

John Doe is described as a white male between the ages of 25 and 35. He had a slim/athletic figure, a bald forehead but with short dark brown hair at the top of his head and brown eyes. Inside of his right wrist, he had a 1.5cm long line-shaped scar and investigators determined that he was most likely from Southern or Eastern Europe (Balkan County).

At the time of his death, he was wearing white stockings, a black t-shirt, blue jeans, “Diamond” brand black shoes, a “Razzy” brand brown shirt and a washed light blue denim jacket from the brand “Dallas”, lined with fur.

John Doe was also carrying 60 DM, one French coin, one Spanish coin and an open packet of cigarettes on him when he died.

At the end of July 2022, the call for identification for this John Doe that was normally on the police’s homepage was no longer there. This suggests that Kaarst John Doe may have been identified, however, there is no other information available online to either support or deny this theory.

Canadian County Jane Doe

On the 5th of January 1990, the body of a young female adult/teenager was found in Geary/El Reno, Oklahoma, by a survey crew. Jane Doe had been beaten to death.

Jane Doe is described as a White/Hispanic/Native American female between 18 and 35. Her height was estimated to be between 5″3′ and 5″7′, and her weight is unknown due to her remains being skeletal at the time of discovery. It is estimated she died between 1 and 5 years before being discovered. Jane Doe possibly had brown hair and was most likely right-handed.

Along with her remains, police also found a size 28 belt with a gold buckle and tan leather tips, a collard white shirt, a pair of Chaus light tan slacks with a pleated front in size 9/10, a ring and a baseball-style cap.

Keri Lyn Wyant

Keri Lyn Wyant is the name of a woman whose partial remains were found in a ditch and cornfield in Condit Township, Illinois, on the 1st of May 1995. She was formally identified in October 2020. At the time of her death, Keri was 23 years old.

Her exact cause of death is not known, but it has been ruled a homicide. It is possible that she died from either a gunshot or had been beaten.

An article by Radford University has stated that serial killer Larry DeWayne Hall is a suspect in Keri’s case, despite the fact her body was found after he had been arrested for the kidnap and murder of Jessica Roach. At the time of this article, it is not clear if Larry is still considered a suspect in Keri’s murder.

Anyone with any information regarding Keri’s murder is urged to come forward to the police.

Wilmington John Doe (April 1973)

On the 22nd of April, 1973, dismembered body parts of a teenager/young male were found across Wilmington in California. His torso was found at Alameda Street and Henry Ford Avenue in Wilmington, and his right leg was found on the Terminal Island Freeway at Anaheim, Wilmington.

His arms were found on Terminal Island at Long Beach, and his head was found in a paper bag behind an Alpha Beta Supermarket at 7th Street and Redondo Avenue in Long Beach. His left leg was found behind Broom Hilda’s.

All of his body parts, apart from his hands, were recovered. He had died as a result of strangulation, but he had his genitals and eyelids removed whilst he was still alive.

Wilmington John Doe is described as being a white male, between the ages of 17 and 25. He stood between 5″2′ and 5″10′ and weighed between 130 – 160lbs. He had brown eyes, a mole on the right side of his neck below his ear, a very thin and fine moustache and brown hair, which was wavy and curly and about 5inches long.

It is strongly believed that this John Doe was a victim of serial killer Randy Kraft, who is responsible for the murders of up to 67 young boys and men mostly in California. Randy was never convicted of this murder, but investigators are certain he was responsible due to the fact that the victim’s left leg was found behind the bar where Randy worked. Randy also kept a scorecard of his victims, and this victim is referred to as “Hawth Off Head” on his scorecard.

Long Beach John Doe (June 1978)

At 4:30am on the 3rd of June 1978, the body of a young man was discovered at the intersection of Division and Corona Street in Long Beach, California. He was found lying face down. John Doe was pronounced dead at the scene and believed that he may have been thrown from a vehicle. Investigators initially thought he died from a drug overdose, however, an autopsy ruled that he had died from being strangled to death.

John Doe is described as between the ages of 15 and 19, standing between 5″7′ and 5″11′ and weighing between 120lbs – 145lbs. He had hazel eyes, brown hair that went to his jaw, a light complexion, freckles, a scar above his right eyebrow, and a slender build. John Doe also had a faded “PAID” stamp on the back of his right hand, which suggests that he may have attended a party, event or even just been at a bar despite the fact his age is estimated to be younger than the legal drinking age.

At the time of his death, John Doe was wearing a blue t-shirt, blue Levi jeans, blue socks, a brown belt, and blue Redwing Tennis shoes with white stripes. Based on his clothing, the theory that he was homeless or a runaway for an extended period of time seems less likely.

It has been theorised that John Doe was a victim of serial killer Randy Kraft. Randy was active between the years 1971 and 1983, and he was known to strangle and sexually assault young men and children in the Southern California area. John Doe’s body was also found just over a mile away from the LGBTQ+ – friendly nightclub Ripples, where Randy would often visit and choose his victims.

However, Randy was known for dismembering his victims and disposing of their bodies along highways after strangling and sexually assaulting them. In this case, the victim was found fully dressed and not dismembered, and there is also no mention of the victim suffering from sexual assault. The same can be said for 1980 Marion County John Doe, who was a confirmed victim of Randy. That John Doe was also found fully clothed, non-dismembered and no record of him being sexually assaulted.

If you have any information regarding the identity, or the murder, of Long Beach John Doe (3rd of June, 1978), please contact the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-843-5678 or the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office at 323-343-0754.
