The Mother

When people go missing, authorities investigate their family members. This is to rule them out as suspects before fanning out to other prospects. And obtain clues as to why their loved ones have gone missing. This, of course, while needed, has to be extremely stressful to already hurting families. Authorities state that Tracey Bradley, mother of Diamond and Tionda, did not cooperate with them in her missing daughters’ cases. They say that she shoved a police officer. He had asked her to go with him to the precinct to talk about leads in March 2002. Authorities placed her in handcuffs. Then they took her to the station. Briefly, she spoke with investigators. Then, after her lawyers arrived at the station, she stopped talking.

Further Investigation

We are not told much backstory of Tracey and how related to her daughters prior to their disappearance. But authorities state that Tracey had missed scheduled appointments, in the past, with detectives. Tracey saw a spiritual advisor. He spoke to the media, telling them that offers had violated her rights by forcing her to go with them to the precinct. In response, authorities, Tracey fought physically with them. So they had to restrain her in handcuffs. As a matter of cooperation, Tracey voluntarily took a polygraph exam. This was soon after her daughter went missing. She is not named a suspect in her daughters’ disappearances.

The Continuing Investigation

Authorities looked into other family members. They searched the girls’ great-grandfather’s home in Wisconsin. But they found no evidence. Some investigators have developed a theory. Their theory surrounds a North African man, who had paid child support for one of them until the summer of 2001. This is when he had learned that he wasn’t this girl’s father. FBI agents went to Morocco to investigate the lead. They could find no evidence that the Bradley girls had been taken there. Police believe that Tionda would have gotten in touch with loved ones, if able. Thus they believe that these two sisters are either deceased or have been taken outside the country.

A Connected Case?

Cases often are solved by making connections with other cases. In the case of the Bradley sisters, authorities had located a young girl. She had matched Diamond’s description. This event was in November 2001. That child was lost. And investigators, wanting that girl to get identified, asked Tracey to identify the girl. The mother refused, reports say. She did arrive at the precinct and said that the child was not Diamond. The girl eventually was identified and and brought home to her family.

In another instance, human remains were found and they belonged to a girl believed to be in her early teens. They were found in the industrial area. It was located on the far south side of Chicago. That was near the railroad tracks in April 2005. Authorities had, at first, believed that these remains belonged to Tionda. But scientists examined the remains. It was determined that this body probably belonged to a Caucasian or Hispanic girl. Thus the Bradley sisters’ case remains unsolved.
