Details: In 1980, 20-year-old Cindy Anderson was plagued by several bizarre and frightening dreams in which she is abducted and murdered by a stranger. On August 4, 1981, Cindy arrived at the legal office that she worked at when she mysteriously vanished, presumed to be abducted, despite having all of the doors to the office locked and an alarm to alert the store next door. She was discovered missing after two of her co-workers arrived to find the office empty. One of her co-workers was surprised to find that Cindy's book that she was reading was opened to the only violent part of the book, and found other evidence that suggested that Cindy met with foul play. Cindy's family found no reason for her to disappear, especially because she was raised in a strict religious environment. Police found that the only items missing other than Cindy were her car keys and purse, and that there was no evidence of forced entry. Foul play is suspected in her disappearance, but she has never been found.
Suspects: A client of Cindy's claimed that the day before she vanished, she received a strange call from an unidentified person and that she was apparently scared by the caller. Another lead police had was about an unidentified man writing "I Love You Cindy" on a wall near Cindy's office. Police were uncertain if the message had anything to do with her disappearance. A month after Cindy vanished, police received an anonymous tip that claimed that she was being held against her will. After she vanished, nine people were indicted on drug-trafficking charges, and many suspected that Cindy knew one of them and was killed because she knew too much about the drugs. None of these theories have been confirmed, however.
Extra Notes: The case was featured as a part of the January 3, 1990 episode.
Results: Unresolved. The person who wrote the spray-painted message has since been identified and is not believed to have any connection with the case. Jose Rodriguez Jr. is a suspect in the case and was one of the nine people indicted on the drug charges. In 1995, while Rodriguez was on trial for the drug charges, a witness testified that he had confessed to killing Cindy Anderson. However, police could not confirm this confession and Cindy's case still remains unsolved.
