Details: Angela Hammond, 20, was four months pregnant when she was talking on a pay phone with her boyfriend, Rob, when she noticed a suspicious male figure pull over next to her in a pickup truck. The next thing Rob knew, she screamed and he raced to his own vehicle to help her. As he raced to the scene, a truck sped past him and she was screaming out to him. He quickly jerked his car to stop the pursuit, but severely damaged the transmission in doing so, disabling his vehicle and ending the chase before it started. 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 with a shotgun. 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.
