Details: Angela Hammond, 20, was four months pregnant at the time of her disappearance. She was talking on a pay phone with her boyfriend, Rob Shafer, when she noticed a suspicious male pull over next to her in a pickup truck. Rob heard her scream over the phone and raced to his own vehicle to help her. As he drove to the scene, a truck sped past him with her inside, screaming. He quickly jerked his car to stop the pursuit, but severely damaged the transmission in the process, disabling his vehicle and ending the chase. She was never found. Her abduction may have been connected to two other nearby kidnapping/murders earlier in the year in Missouri. One involved a 42-year-old convenience store worker named Trudy Darby near Macks Creek, who was robbed and kidnapped on January 19, 1991 and whose body was discovered two days later; she had been raped and shot twice in the head. Another involved Cheryl Kenney, 30, another convenience store worker in Nevada, who was kidnapped on February 27. She has not been seen since.
Suspects: Angela’s abductor drove an older late 60s to early 70s model two-tone Ford pickup with the mural of a fish jumping out of water on the back window. Rumors are he may have been serial killer Kenneth McDuff, whose killing spree spanned from 1966 to 1992, but this is unconfirmed.
Extra Notes: This case first aired on the February 5, 1992 episode. It was also featured on The Maury Povich Show.
Results: Unsolved. Trudy's murder was eventually solved when Jesse Rush, 15, and Marvin Chaney, 29, were convicted of it, but Cheryl and Angela's cases still remain unsolved. One rumor suggests Angela was murdered and thrown into a well in the old artesian park in Clinton, Missouri, close to the site of a very old water ride, but it is unknown if this has been explored.
