chartier-judithJudith Ann Chartier was 17 when she vanished in Billerica, Massachusetts. on June 5, 1982 along with her vehicle, a 1970’s Black Dodge Dart Swinger.

Earlier that night she had attended a party with her then boyfriend. Sometime during the party she had an argument with him and dropped him off at his home before returning back to the party and leaving alone at approximately 2AM. She never made it to her home in Chelmsford, MA.

The town of Chelmsford is approximately 4 miles from the city of Lowell, and is located on Interstate 495 of the Boston metro outer beltway.

Chartier was employed at a fast food restaurant in Chelmsford at the time and those closest to the missing teen alleged she was being harassed by a male co-worker. In fact, it is believed she was afraid of this individual however, he was never entered in as a suspect.

According to Most Wanted Hoes the United States Secret Service notified Chelmsford Police Department that the infamous counterfeiter and sexual sadist, James Mitchell DeBardeleben had been in the town the day prior to Judith Chartier’s disappearance. DeBardeleben is alleged to have murdered several brunette women over an eighteen-year span. Arrested on May 25, 1983, in Knoxville, Tennessee, Secret Service Agents searched DeBardeleben’s 1971 Chrysler seizing evidence including a receipt from a motel in Chelmsford dated June 4, 1982.

DeBardeleben denies having ever met Judith Chartier. Nonetheless, DeBardeleben was in the area the day before Judith’s disappearance and she fit his victim profile. DeBardeleben may have first spotted Judith at the fast food restaurant where she worked. Furthermore, DeBardeleben somewhat varied his motive of operation, he could have stalked Judith, then while impersonating a police officer abducted her. However, DeBardeleben as to date is not known to move or hide his victims. So, if DeBardeleben had abducted and murdered Judith Chartier, her remains, or at least her vehicle should have been discovered by now. Unfortunately, neither Judith nor her Dodge Swinger has been found, and that is because both are hidden. Therefore, the possibility exists that DeBardeleben was not involved in Judith Chartier disappearance.

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Judith Ann Chartier please contact the Chelmsford Police Department in Chelmsford, Massachusetts at 978-256-2521.

Two bodies, no names
Pagosa Springs detective reopens 1982 murder case

CARRACAS – Frank Chavez dismounted from his horse to examine what looked like a football in the San Juan River.

The cattle rancher discovered a human foot, attached to a dead woman, her upper body skeletonized.

Chavez went for help and returned later that day with Archuleta County sheriff’s deputies, the coroner and neighbors to recover the body. The woman had been strangled, authorities later determined.

That was Sept. 19, 1982. A month later, on Oct. 22, another rancher nearby stumbled across a dead man who had been shot twice, his body in the river, eaten by coyotes.

Almost 27 years later, authorities do not know who the victims were, who killed them or why. George Barter, an Archuleta County Sheriff’s Office detective, is trying to change that

Barter has taken a strong interest in the case, re-interviewing witnesses and commissioning new reconstructions of what the victims would have looked like.

Months before their deaths, the couple – known as John and Jane Doe – were seen at the bar of the Iron Horse Inn north of Durango. They also came through Pagosa Springs, Farmington and Dulce, N.M. A witness remembers seeing someone matching the woman’s description at the Bondad Hill Saloon.
.
“They ran all around this area during that summer,” Barter said.

Someone, Barter believes, has gotten away with murder.

Jane Doe was found with two pendants, one of a heart and another of an Italian love horn.

A piece of paper found in her jeans pocket had a name and phone number, but for years, investigators could not decipher the writing. Eventually, they determined it was the penmanship of Marilyn Cobianco, who lives in Farmington.

Cobianco confirmed it was her handwriting, but she could not remember Jane Doe or explain why her name and phone number ended up in a dead woman’s pocket, Barter said. Cobianco declined to be interviewed when reached by phone recently.

John Doe was wearing a tan T-shirt with the logo of Lazy B Guest Ranch, a now-defunct brothel in Fallon, Nev. The reverse showed a map of brothels in that area.

John Doe’s body is buried at Fairview Memorial Park in Albuquerque in a grave marked only by a number.

Jane Doe’s remains were given to Block-Salazar Mortuary in Española, N.M.

“They put her in an unmarked grave in an unknown cemetery,” Barter said. “Not to say that I’m done looking for her.”

John and Jane Doe’s skulls were separated from their bodies to aid in police reconstructions shortly after the crime, ending up in storage at a museum used by the New Mexico Office of the Medical Investigator, Barter said. That office did not return messages requesting comment.

Much of the evidence connected to the case has been lost, including Jane Doe’s clothing. The case file itself was missing until an Archuleta County clerk found it in an old file cabinet.

Turf disputes over the crime, which happened on the Colorado-New Mexico border, just east of Arboles, also have slowed the investigation.

Prosecutors in Archuleta County and Rio Arriba County, N.M., fought over jurisdiction of the case, Barter said. New Mexico State Police officers who now are retired investigated, along with the Archuleta County Sheriff’s Office. Evidence was split among law enforcement in Archuleta County, Rio Arriba County and state investigators in Albuquerque.

Barter fears physical evidence was thrown out because of New Mexico’s former 15-year statute of limitations on prosecuting murders.

Barter said if investigators “had just done their jobs and preserved what was there,” the victims’ assailant or assailants would be in jail by now.

“I feel like she was probably sexually molested,” Barter said. “Now, with DNA, we could tag the person if we found those things.”

Jane Doe, investigators believe, was 5 feet 5 inches tall, 115 pounds and had brown hair, although Chavez insists she had long, blonde hair. She was 30 to 35 years old. By the time Chavez found her, she had been in the river for four to six weeks, the coroner estimated.

Investigators know less about John Doe because his body was more badly decomposed. It had been at least eight weeks since his death when he was found. He was believed to be in his mid-20s, with a stocky build and reddish-blond hair. He may have worked for a carnival traveling around the area. Both were white.

Barter got Mary Brazas, a Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office official, to draw new, more accurate reconstructions of the victims with the aid of computer technology. Older reconstructions done soon after the crime simply used clay and wigs.

Several theories have emerged to explain why the two, who may have been a couple, were killed.

Jane Doe may have been raped, and John Doe killed to get him out of the way, Barter said. It also could have been a drug deal gone bad. But Barter said both of these theories are only “wild guesses.”

No car has been tied to the victims and they are believed to have hitchhiked around the area, Barter said. They likely would have had few possessions worth stealing.

Barter hopes someone still living can help him identify the victims and catch the killers.

“This case epitomizes injustice,” the detective said. “If there was justice in the world, (the killers) would be in jail, and we’d know who (the victims) were.”

A Colorado Bureau of Investigations agent in Durango, Jeff Brown, has helped track down leads for Barter. He said the bureau would not release any information about the investigation and referred questions to Archuleta County.

The case became a bit more eerie when Barter and Brazas went to visit John Doe’s grave. They found it in a line of gravestones devoted to unidentified victims.
“There were fresh flowers on it,” Barter said.

Frank Chavez, 76, and his brother Chris still raise cattle, goats, sheep, pigs and chickens at Rancho Juanita near where the bodies were found.

The remote area is about 18 miles south of U.S. Highway 160, west of Pagosa Springs. A dirt road leads to Pagosa Junction, a place on the map marked only by a church and a crumbling railroad depot. The Chavez brothers live south of there, at Carracas, near where the San Juan River dips into New Mexico.

The brothers think the bodies may have been thrown off the Carracas Bridge that spans the San Juan among cottonwoods and sagebrush on County Road 557. Both bodies were found downstream of there. But Barter said the bodies could have been dumped at any point upriver of where they were found.

The brothers believe the killings were drug-related. Trafficking and a lack of law enforcement posed problems in the 1970s and early ’80s, they said. “Planes used to fly by here real low,” Chris Chavez said.

But Barter said the Chavez brothers’ theory that the killings were drug-related is only “speculative.”

The killings shocked residents, Frank Chavez said.

“It was a dark day in our community here to have something like that happen in our backyard,” he said. “We grew up with hardworking, honest people. In the ’70s, it all turned. People were coming from all over the place.

Barter hopes publicity about the case will lead to the victims’ identification.

“These people deserve to be known,” he said. “And their families deserve to know where they are.”

The incident occurred on the evening of November 17, 2012 in New York City.

The victim was a woman who realized she was missing her wallet containing her Chase Visa and MasterCard along with other items while at the Borough Hall subway station in Downtown Brooklyn.

Two days later surveillance tape from Chase Bank at 8th Ave. and W. 15 Street captured footage of a young dark-haired white female, between the ages of 25-30, posing as the victim and withdrawing the large sum of cash from her account. She is estimated to be around 5’3″ tall, weighing approximately 120 pounds with a thin frame.

The suspect can also be seen wearing glasses in the still-shots shown above. It is unknown if they’re prescription glasses and/or reading glasses or merely for style. She is wearing dark (possibly black) clothing in what looks like a black (light) jacket and female fashion boots.

Reconstruction of Victim – Many reconstructions of the victim were created. It is unknown if she had curly, wavy or straight hair. These recreations shouldn’t be the sole identifying factor.

The skeletal remains of the unidentified female victim was discovered on October 27, 2006 in a field near the South Service Road and Holt Road which is located near the entrance to Darlington Nuclear Plant in Bowmanville, Ontario, Canada.

“Jane Doe” is described as a White female between the ages 18 – 30 years. She had several items in and around her possession, including a Omni watch with stainless steel straps, a ring with an oval January birthstone, a piece of ribbon and a small red heart that was found in the area. A t-shirt with green, blue, red yellow, and black strips.

Good Identifying Factors:

  • She has a very well-healed nasal fracture which would have been located at the midpoint of her nose (in life) – the point where the nasal bones end and the soft part of the nose begins. The fracture is set so she either received treatment, or it is possibly the result of rhinoplasty. The fact that her nose had been fractured (or surgically altered) would not have been obvious unless someone who knew her at the time saw her post trauma/surgery, or she told someone. She exhibits bone changes indicative of anemia.
  • Nice teeth with visible white fillings on her front teeth, one front tooth appears slightly wider than the other, smallish silver fillings in some back teeth. Her upper and lower jaws are described as narrow. She also had prominent upper and lower teeth that protruded. Her upper teeth protruded more than her lower teeth.

Note: Just because the unidentified person was discovered in another country doesn’t necessarily mean they’re from that Country. The Bowmanville community was most likely alerted of this case. The fact that nobody has come forward could indicate she was from another area.

 

Unsolved Murder of Amy Lynn Drake (11/22/87 – 11/24/06)

Amy Drake

Amy Drake went missing in late September, 2006 when she was 18-years-old. Her family filed a missing persons report with the Skowhegan Police Department.

Amy was a teenage girl who was born in Farmington, Maine on November 22, 1987. She lived in Skowhegan during her teen years and attended Jay and Skowhegan Schools where she was a cheerleader and good student. She was a good person and a typical, happy, kind teen so many were shocked and saddened when her murdered remains were discovered in the Fall of 2006.

According to reports, Amy went missing in late September, 2006. Her family noticed her purse and clothes were still at their home which indicates she planned to be back. They reported her disappearance to Skowhegan Police Department.

On November 24, 2006, two days after the missing teen’s 19th birthday, hunters found her murdered remains in a wooded area off River Road in Norridgewock, ME which is approximately two miles from Skowhegan.

Authorities didn’t release the cause of death but did say she was in fact, murdered.

”Manner of death is always an issue that we withhold. We feel it’s very important. That kind of information can make or break the case, and what we don’t want to do is put information out there that could take away the possibility of narrowing down our focus on individuals,” Lt. Gary Wright from the Maine State Police said to Portland Press Herald in 2009. 

During Amy’s funeral, the Rev. Mark Tanner of the Federated Church in Skowhegan asked her family and friends to be vigilant in finding her killer, and they have been.

”We all have a job to do,” Tanner said. ”We have a responsibility to one another. We have a responsibility to our young people, and to the ones around us – to keep our eyes open.” 

”The voices that God has given us are voices that allow us to speak. Some of the worst mistakes we can make as people are to keep our mouths closed.”

Who would have wanted her dead? Maine State Police have been trying to figure that question out for over six years as well. They say someone has information regarding this case that they haven’t reported and hope they do what’s morally right and give Amy Drake’s loved ones the closure they’ve been desperately hoping and praying for.

”We continue to follow-up on any lead that comes in on it. We’re still reviewing the evidence that we have collected in the last couple of years,” said Wright.
